Important Features of Our Service
This Service is password protected and limited to registered Users.
Types of Accounts and Users
Community Pages: Any user may request to build a community on Talk Howdy. Pending Talk Howdy’s approval of community, said user will then become a Community Administrator of the now-approved community, and may now set up the homepage for the approved community. These pages will be managed by the Community Administrators, as set forth below.
Community Admin/Leader Roles: If you are a Community Administrator of a Talk Howdy community, then you can establish a community homepage. Other members of said community also acquire an administrative role (as assigned by the Community Administrator) for a particular community. The primary Community Administrator in question will be required to permit any additional Community Administrator prior to such account gaining administrative permissions. The initial Community Administrator shall also have the right to eliminate or remove any secondary Community Administrators or community members at any time.
All of the proceeding (Community Administrator, Community Member) shall be considered a User.
All User profiles will be viewable by all other Users. Any information posted to an account or on a profile will become Shared Information. Please use caution when sharing your Personal Information.
