HydroCanna encourages civil and respectful discourse between it's members and staff. There is an 'ignore' option in every members control panel who find themselves in a personality conflict with another member.

4. Obscene/Pornographic/Violent postings:
Any use of images revealing genitalia , violence or violent atrocity(ies) will be removed and an infraction issued. Repeated posting of these types of images will result in banning.

5. Off Topic Postings:
Post remarks that have nothing to do with the subject of the forum will be moved or deleted at the discretion of the moderator.

6. Solicitations: Threads or posts soliciting or offering the buying/selling/trading/swapping/testing/giving of seeds, clones, pollen, cannabis, hash, or any other substance or article is not permitted and will be deleted, with the member subjected to banning without warning. Threads or posts pertaining to the recreational use of narcotic substances is not permitted and will be deleted.
6a. Wish lists of varieties placed in posts, threads, or the members 'signature line' area will be deleted by a Moderator or Admin as doing so is deemed an attempt to circumvent site policy regarding solicitations.

7. Spamming/Off Site Links: Spammers will be banned. Admin will delete any links to off server websites as a security precaution to safeguard the security of all members. At HydroCanna there are appropriate avenues to follow regarding advertising. Any unauthorized advertisements will be deleted as Spam and the member banned.

7a. As a privately owned site, we retain the right to prohibit information posted in threads, posts, and signature lines that contains information pertaining to commercial products/entities that do not pay for advertisement or are not products represented by the owner of this site.

8. Banning:
People who violate HydroCanna's forum guidelines are subject to banning. We do not justify our bans to the general membership. Those who complain about a member being banned, are subject to being banned themselves.

9. Personal Message (PM): Any personal message sent by one member to another through the P.M. system or Rep Point system, both of which are not public and shared between a private system between members (not in open forum). Posting personal messages (P.M.'s) and/or e-mails (or part's thereof) in open forum(s) sent to you on this site or via any other private means is not permitted and will result in the offending member being banished. Posting of any members' personal information is strictly forbidden and will result in immediate banning.

9a. Forwarding of Private Messages (P.M.'s) is not permitted without the original sender of the P.M. giving the member who wishes to forward that private information permission 'prior' to the P.M. being forwarded. Any member who forwards a P.M. to another member(s) without first obtaining permission from the original sender will be banned should the original sender, or any recipient of that P.M. make a valid complaint to Admin.

10. Off-site links: Off-site links to other websites that are controlled by servers that are not located in a cannabis tolerant country could possibly be used to harvest growers IP's so compromising the security of our members. Admin may elect (at their discretion) to delete any links to off server websites as a security precaution to safeguard the security of all members.

11. Events/Meet-ups: Outside of events that take place in Amsterdam, 4:20 cup, High Times cup, MMJ States etc we do not condone, encourage, nor permit discussions for private meet-ups. It is our hope that members retain their anonymity afforded them through the use of this site. Any member who attempts to solicit or arrange meet-ups is subject to immediate banishment. It is ultimately up to each member to protect their own identity by remaining anonymous at all times. Posts pertaining to private meet-ups/social events via VM's, reported PM's, or events not approved by Admin will be deleted. If you wish to make known an event, you must contact Admin for event approval prior to posting.

12. Report Posts: Please let us know ASAP if there are any postings that violate these guidelines, especially if they offend you! Next to every post there is a link to report it for review by a Moderator, Super Moderator or member of Admin. We encourage members to use the 'Report Post' feature (shown here:
) so you can report violations or anything else that requires the attention of a moderator. However, abuse of this function will not be tolerated and can result in sanctions.

13. Vendor/Collective Forums: Vendors must moderate their forum in compliance with our Rules. Supermod and Admin moderating decisions supersede that of any vendor moderator. No post(s) made in a vendor's forum by a Supermod or Admin shall be deleted by that forum's vendor moderator.

14. No Bad Mouthing of other Forums: Simple and plain. If you have a problem with another forum, take it up with them on their own site. Do not bring it to HydroCanna!
