IBET (IL-BIRDS) Information
LIST RULES - These rules need to be followed
1. Keep the conversation on birding in
2. Sign ALL posts with your name,
town/city, and county.
3. Please include the county in which your
sighting occurred if it is not your home county.
4. Do not send attachments; link members to a website to share photos.
5. If the post does not include a
sighting, please indicate NO SIGHTINGS (capitalized) in the subject.
6. Please refrain from sarcasm, because it can't be distinguished from antagonism on a printed page.
7. There is ZERO tolerance for flaming,
posting messages that are deliberately hostile and insulting to others. This will get you barred from IBET on the first offense.
- 8. If you find a rare bird, please put RBA in the subject.
ADDITIONAL TIPS - Suggestions
Use a short but descriptive subject line.
There should be no discussion about pet
Discussion about conservation issues
should generally be held on the BCNnet mailing list or Illinois Birders' Forum, not IBET.
When mentioning birding locations that may
not be well known among birders, please include directions.
Please configure your e-mail software not
to send an HTML version of your message along as an attachment.
Use sensible judgment before posting the
exact location of birds. The welfare of the birds should always come
first. Detailed directions to bird nests and owl roosts are usually NOT
reported publicly on IBET.
