2. Showing respect to members and guests, regardless of their residency, experience, attitudes, or views.
3. Making positive contributions to the site (providing practical answers to posted questions, initiating threads that are of value to the outdoors community, etc.)
4. Members that are in good standing via their ‘Reputation’ which includes a limited number of infractions given by the Moderators of Outdoors Directory
