_____________________________________________________
• DUPLICATE MEMORIALS

Before creating a memorial, I do my "homework" by performing a SITE-WIDE SEARCH for a prior listing. Duplicates can occur due to FIRST-CREATED entries (the memorial with the LOWER NUMBER) being innocently missed, or ignored intentionally (sorry folks, but I also include "BURIAL UNKNOWNS" as ORIGINAL creations, if they were created FIRST )!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm pretty sure that no one appreciates having their FIRST-CREATED memorials "stolen" out from under them (especially while in the process of researching burial/disposition information), just because someone doesn't want to make the effort to do a thorough enough search, or to contact the ORIGINAL memorial manager with correct/current information!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I do NOT have the SELFISH attitude of "Yay, I win, you lose, I found the grave first". I send correct disposition location info for an EXISTING entry to the manager who submitted the memorial FIRST, THEREFORE I EXPECT THE SAME COURTESY EXTENDED TO ME! In the spirit of sharing, that is the POLITE and PROPER thing to do!

• TRANSFER REQUESTS (Effective starting Sunday, July 17, 2011)

***** PLEASE READ CAREFULLY, AS THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE: *****

Out-of-Guidelines Transfer Requests are no longer being honored or acknowledged, due to a really bad experience with another "contributor". Aggressive, Harassing, and/or Repeated requests for Out-of-Guidelines Transfers (especially for the SAME MEMORIAL), are a MAJOR "no-no" with me!

• HONORING VETERANS

I have a soft spot in my heart for veterans, and believe that they deserve our thanks and appreciation!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My beloved late father was a World War II overseas combat vet, and I couldn't be more proud of him! ❤

• MILITARY TITLES

Please DO NOT send me Edit Requests to CHANGE Military Titles, unless the one shown is INCORRECT! The EXISTING Title (especially in OLDER memorials) is likely the one that was available at the time of the memorial's creation. So if the Title is still correct (regardless of how it appears in the current drop-down list), I PREFER IT TO REMAIN AS IS!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And regarding ADDING military titles ... I do not list military titles unless the person “died with their boots on”, so-to-speak, or was career/retired military. However, I WILL strive to note it somewhere in the person's bio and/or in the "Marker Inscription" section.

• MY FIND A GRAVE PHILOSOPHIES

The individuals memorialized on Find A Grave meant something to somebody, and I do not take that lightly! All " Virtual Flowers" that I put on memorials are from the heart.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I DO MIND MY OWN BUSINESS ... CAN YOU SAY THE SAME ABOUT YOURSELF?

I was raised with good manners, and I require good manners in ANY Find A Grave correspondence sent to me; therefore if you "play nice", I'll "play nice". However, if your Find A Grave messages even have a HINT of being any one of these:

• Abusive • Aggressive • Demanding • Disrespectful • Falsely Accusatory
• Harassing • Hateful • Ill-mannered • Immature • Inappropriate
• Nasty • Offensive • Pushy • Rude • Sanctimonious • Slanderous
• Smart-mouthed • Threatening • Underhanded, etc

YOU WILL BE IGNORED, AND REPORTED, JUST AS THREE CERTAIN "CONTRIBUTORS" WERE!
_____________________________________________________
• NAMING A MEMORIAL

If the deceased never married; the surname goes in the LAST NAME field. The MAIDEN NAME field is only for married persons who took their spouse's LAST NAME.
_____________________________________________________
• SUGGEST A CORRECTION/EDIT REQUESTS, etc

Please keep Bio information out of "Leave A Public Message", "Photo Captions", and "Virtual Flowers".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ALWAYS state your VERIFIABLE source(s) when sending me information!
_____________________________________________________
• VIRTUAL CEMETERIES

You may want to consider putting memorials in "Virtual Cemeteries", as they are great ways to keep folks "together".
