Please re-read and familiarize yourself with our website's terms of service. From this point on, we will be deleting posts that do not fall into our terms of service, and/or are offensive (and yes, the mods will be judging what's offensive) We should have been in the beginning, but as of now, we will be. These rules also apply to the shoutbox and any other location where data can be submitted and displayed on kavaforums.

Please understand that this is a website that revolves around kava. We have made a "Off Topic" forum for off topic threads. I truly feel that if we are to continue being the vibrant kava community that we are, we need to abide by some rules. I've been letting this forum run in neutral for far too long trying to get everyone on the same page. Now I understand that this is impossible. Without rules we are the wild west, and that's not what I created kavaforums for.
