This is a community for sharing tips on tanning hides, cleaning bones, etc. Also we want members to post about interesting finds of skulls and such, whether it was at a store or out in the wilds. Sharing your crafts using fur and natural stuff is also encouraged.

Buying something from a seller here at FH&B? Check out the seller feedback post!

Mods can be contacted by leaving a comment to this post.

1. Please be respectful. This applies to the living and the dead. Keep in mind that while respect may differ between individuals, some things will not be tolerated.

2. Be nice. Put large photos, large numbers of photos, or photos/descriptions of things that may make others squeamish, under a cut. (Roadkill, skinning, pets, etc, etc.)

3. When posting something of questionable legality (ex, a feather you found and would like to ID as you're unsure if it's legal or not), please "friends-lock" it. Sale of illegal or illegally obtained animal parts is not allowed, nor is the illegal shipping of otherwise legal animal parts (ie, shipping from the US to outside of the US without proper paperwork, shipping bear parts to certain states, etc). Some members may comment to advise when a post is made containing potentially illegal items, do not start a fight with them. Fur, Hide, and Bone, as well as its administrator and moderators, are not responsible for making sure your transaction is 100% legal. We try to catch what we can, but before you buy or sell, check your state and national restrictions. We take no legal responsibility for anything bought or sold via Fur, Hide, and Bone.

4. Deleting comments that don't agree with you, or comments by a mod, is strongly discouraged.

5. If you have a complaint about a user or have a problem with a user, message one of the mods. Coming to us later with a problem that happened weeks ago is annoying.

6. This community, by its very nature, has the potential to be offensive. Well-reasoned, clear-headed debate and constructive criticism is welcome, flame-wars are not. If you absolutely have to argue with someone, do it in a forum outside of Fur, Hide, and Bone.

7. If you feel that you have been offended or that a post/comment is offensive in nature, please contact a mod. Do not aggravate the issue further.

8. The mods will, when possible, stay in contact with one another about issues and will come to a decision on possible suspensions or bans as a team. Warnings may be issued by any mod. Posts and comments can be deleted by any mod, with message sent to the OP or commenter regarding the deletion, except when deletion is requested by OP or commenter.

9. Keep in mind that the mods have lives outside of FH&B and the internet. The mods will respond in as quick a manner as they can, however, things happen. If you wish to contact a mod, leave a comment to this post.
