Welcome to the TEXAS Forum!

Here are some reminders of the rules for posting in this TEXAS Forum, along with City-Data's
Terms of Service (TOS) that you all agreed to when you registered to become a City-Data member:

Per TOS, this forum is strictly moderated. There is one moderator assigned to moderate this forum:RonnieinDallas. You are welcome to contact him by Direct Message (DM) with any questions or concerns that you may have about this forum. However, posting comments to - or about any moderator actions - in this forum is not permitted for any reason, per TOS.

2. Please use the report function to report all posts that do not conform with the TOS - this includes spam and troll posts, as well as posts that need to be moved to specific Texas city sub-forums or other City-Data forums.

3. Per
TOS, all posts unrelated to local Texas matters will be deleted or moved. Threads dealing with controversial topics that often degenerate into flame wars, such as politics or religion, may be moved, closed, or deleted by moderators at their discretion without any warning to the participants.

4. Stay on topic. Per TOS, attempts to hi-jack threads by switching topics or going off topic will be deleted and infractions issued. This is not a chat room - when people hi-jack threads by posting messages that are of interest to only few people, the threads often stop being useful discussions of initial topics.

5. Be civil, no personal attacks, flaming, bullying, insults or discussion of other members. Per TOS, we may attack ideas (politely) but we do not attack the speaker of the idea. Be careful with your words, there is a point where being direct crosses a line into blunt, in-your-face hostility. Please, report bad posts instead of engaging in flame wars on the boards. Insulting another member or a moderator will not be tolerated anywhere on this website. This includes Direct Messages and Reputation Comments.

6. "Trolling" is prohibited. Per
TOS, do not quote or talk to trolls or your posts will also be deleted. Use the report feature instead. Additionally, do not call anyone a troll within this forum - this will be considered a personal attack - use the report feature instead.

7. Per TOS, hate speech, racism or bashing of ANY sort will NOT be tolerated. Rude posts will be removed and infractions issued.

8. Copyrighted Material - Per TOS, instead of copying-and-pasting articles, photos, or other material you find on the Internet, you should be posting links to those articles/photos. Posting a snippet from the article (2-3 sentences) and then the link is the appropriate way to post.

9. Per TOS, "outing" users by revealing their address, phone number, or other information that they didn't themselves share on our forum is prohibited. This also includes any attempts to intimidate a member into revealing any personal information to "prove their story".

10. Solicitation: No matter how good the cause, soliciting for ANY reason is not allowed on this site.

11. Per TOS, recommendations are allowed for posters that have at least 10 posts. One cannot recommend himself/herself. The only area where recommendations are not permitted is real estate, however general responses, such as "we have many helpful and knowledgeable real estate agents on this forum - just DM them" are fine.

12. Per TOS, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

13. Real Estate and other businesses
.....- No specific real estate company, broker or agent or mortgage bank/company name or website can be posted within the forum - Send a DM only.
.... - Real Estate listings/addresses from any source cannot be posted within the forum - Send DM only.
.....- Real Estate Agents and other businesses will not advertise their services nor solicit business in their posts. See TOS.

Your expected cooperation is appreciated!
