These are the rules of this Camino forum and they will be used by moderators with the intention of making this forum a good and comfortable place to share and exchange anything related to the Camino de Santiago.

Point system:
This forum has implemented a point system for those users that violate any of the rules below. Every member starts with 0 points, but for each infraction the user is given x number of warning points. Each point given is automatically removed 1 month later.

Users that accumulate the following number of active/non-expired points will see the following:
1-4 points - No action
5-9 points - All posts need to be approved by a moderator
10-19 points - Banned for 1 month
20-29 points - Banned for 3 months
30 and more points (does not expire) - Banned.

If you would like to know your point status, please ask a moderator in a Private Message.

1) Please do not be rude or write anything that can be considered a personal attack. We can have opinions that differ on topics, but we should not get rude or personal. What is rude? or what is a personal attack and what is not? The "receiver" of a comment might think it is rude/a personal attack, while the author might disagree. The final judgement is made by the moderators (we will do the best we can).

2) No discussions on religion, bull fights , sports and politics. These topics "always" end in a fight, so let's not go there. It is true that the Camino and religion is closely related, so some leeway will be given.

3) No commercial posts in the forum. As the Camino becomes more and more popular, there are more products and services related to the Camino. If you have one, please feel free to post it in our Camino Resources section.

Exception 1: Feel free to post your Camino related book here in the Book section. One thread per book, no bumping (replying to your own post to get more attention).

Exception 2: Lodging facilities can post one post describing their place in the "Lodging" forum within each Camino. No unnecessary "bumping" allowed" (replying to your own post to get more attention).

All other commercial posts will be removed.

4) Obscene language and subjects are prohibited. The occasional slip will be tolerated, but please do not let it become a habit.

5) No trolling. Trolling consists of provoking large volumes of responses by posting absurdities, deliberately offensive insults, etc.

6) Personal comments that are not of general interest should be done by using a Private Message/Conversation. If it's a private comment, then it's a private message.

7) If you do not agree on a moderator decision, please contact the moderator or @ivar in a Private Conversation. All disagreements should be handled in Private Conversations and not in public.

8) Each person is only allowed to have one account in the forum.

9) If you are walking for charity and ask for money, this should be done in the 'Walking for a good cause' section of the Camino Resource section.
All post asking for money in the forum will be deleted.

10) Commercial avatars are not permitted. Members will be asked to remove those deemed to be commercial. Moderators will warn members and remove these avatars. @ivar shall determine if an avatar violates this rule.

11) Signatures should be a maximum of 3 lines "tall," without emojis or images (without embellishments), and they may include a simple link to their blog, social media account or commercial website.

12) For photos uploaded to the forum
(including the Photo section) the following rules apply:
  • Photos uploaded to the forum is the property of the person who took the photo.
  • Please only upload photos that are your own.
  • To use these photos in any other way, please contact the person who took the photo for permission.
13) Posts that are intended mainly to increase traffic to social media accounts or commercial sites, with minimal contribution to the forum value are not allowed and will be removed.

@ivar will have the final say in any dispute.
