A Welcome Message

On behalf of the Owners, Administrators, and Moderators, welcome to the GliderCENTRAL Home Page. We have been serving the glider community for about nine years now with more than 275,000 posts for the purpose of sharing glider information while providing a family type of atmosphere. Both veteran and new members are welcome. Our main mission is to help Sugar Gliders and their owners with illness questions or general glider care. We are a PG rated board and do not approve of flaming or bashing. This board will not be involved in name calling, gossip or drama. If you have any problems or questions, please contact one of our Moderators, Administrators or the Owner.

We would like to thank everyone for making GliderCENTRAL what it is and we are glad to have you all.
Have fun, and we will strive to give all the help we can for you.

Let's liven things up a bit around here! party

What do ya say? Want to have a little fun? :yes:

Maybe even win a prize? dance

Let's have a little "Guessing Game"!

Sorry, but we've got to have a few rules. Wait, wait wait! Don't :hit: me just yet. They are pretty simple. grin

1. Open to all members, excluding staff.

2. Members must guess the number of parts used to compile the toy pictured (the clear 3-M hook on wall holding the toy is not a part of the toy).

3. Type your guess (number) as your response. The first person with the number closest, but not over the total, is the winner. The thread will be locked on October 10th at 9:00 pm EST. The winner will be announced on Sunday, October 12th.

4. The toy in the contest will be shipped to the winner. The winning member will be notified and must provide their mailing address to GliderNursery within 5 business days of the announcement to receive their prize.

Let the guessing begin!

09/11/14 09:58 AM Ellen Ross

Yesterday we received a call from Bruce that our Beloved Miss Ellen crossed over the Rainbow Bridge peacefully in her sleep.

Many of you never had the pleasure of knowing her personally or even here on GliderCENTRAL, but because of her this message board and all it stands for is what it is today.

Ellen and Bruce stepped in as Owners in 1998, with Ellen being the 'Mother Hen' of GliderCENTRAL, a name the staff affectionately gave her.

Ellen not only attended but worked the SGGA's, coming up with many ideas to raise money for the glider community. She helped raise funds for the First Diet Study and helped with too many things to remember.

She was also a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great friend.

We will miss you Miss Ellen.

02/06/13 01:50 PM Rule 5 Change

Most people are not aware it is illegal to hold a raffle or raffle type fundraiser on the internet as they are considered a form of gambling.

For more information you can read here

Rule 5 has been changed as follows:


5. Fund raisers including but not limited to auctions, raffles, sales of services or goods intended for non-profit use must be approved by the board Administration before being posted on GliderCENTRAL. Solicitation for free or price-reduced gliders, donations, or goods is not permitted without prior approval of Administration.


5. Fundraisers including but not limited to auctions, sales of services or goods intended for non-profit use must be approved by the Board Administration before being posted on GliderCENTRAL. Solicitation for free or price-reduced gliders, donations, or goods is not permitted without prior approval of Administration.

Raffles are considered a form of gambling. As gambling laws vary State to State, we will not approve the posting of any raffle or raffle type fundraisers.

Later on we will activate the system to have all members agree to the rules again since they have changed as shown above.

Thank you.

08/14/12 09:17 PM Rule 7 Change

It has become necessary for us to change Rule 7 to reflect in particular what is allowed in signatures as it applies to links.

We have seen a shift to members adding lines in their signature that amount to advertising, and adding extra website links related to their business, so we must now limit what is allowed for vendors to website or company name as a link only.

As Facebook links can be placed in individual profiles, they will no longer be allowed in signatures. Because Photobucket links have been used for advertising as well, we will no longer be allowing the posting of photobucket/picture links in signatures.

Posting links to Non-business Sugar Glider Organizations like SGH, S.U.G.A.R, TGI, etc. will still be allowed.

In a few days the rules will change and everyone will need to agree as we do each time there is a rule change. GC staff will begin editing signatures for our members on August 20th, to give everyone a little time to edit themselves.

Revised Rule 7:

7. Avatars, Images, Videos, Links, and Smilies. All Avatars, Images, Videos, Links, and Smilies must comply with Rule 4.
Avatars: must be in good taste and not violent or sexual in nature.

The signature limit is set to 300 characters max.
Only board icons are allowed in your signature.
Please limit your gremlins/smilies to 6 in your signature.

Website or Company name as a link ONLY. NO product types/specialty mentions in signature. NO Facebook or Photobucket links are allowed in signatures (they can be placed in profiles).

Images: Are allowed, sparingly, when it adds to the post's understanding.
Gremlins/Smilies: Only board smilies are allowed.

Videos: Videos can now be posted here even if they are not glider related. Non glider related videos must be posted in Community Hall and all videos must be embedded, not posted as links. All videos must be in good taste and not violent or sexual in nature. We will not allow any millbreeder or brokers videos to be linked or embedded.

Links: to news sites as well as other sites such as blogs are permitted as long as the page being linked to complies with Rule 4. Links to personals (dating sites) and other sites that do not comply with Rule 4 will not be allowed.

**** We cannot possibly cover every website individually so any website which leads to non PG-rated material will be removed ****

06/07/12 03:33 PM Depreciating the Gallery

We plan on depreciating the gallery here at GliderCENTRAL. The gallery was started many many years ago before photobucket and other image hosting sites were available. It was a great feature to offer members for free, but for years it has been getting less and less use. Especially after moving the photo of the week contest here to the forums. I actually stopped allowing registration last year.

Another reason we have decided to nix the gallery is its extra software and I do not like the way the software is heading. I use the software for my own personal family stuff and while its works great in many areas it is also very limited for the amount of permissions we need for our members.

We have had a few ideas and I was gona wait till after our next upgrade, but we will be creating a photo subforum in Health & Hygiene, Behavior & anatomy, and Housing. Users will be able to create a new topic and add up to 5 photos inside. Just like the photo of the week, replies/questions to the post will be allowed. We feel this may be a better way of utilizing the forums instead of making people go to a seperate part of GC to log in and comment, it will all be in one place now.

I was also planning on eventually adding a photo subforum for the photo contest winners. Meaning after they win I just move the photo to the new subforum titled ex: 2012 winners and at the end of the year when creating a gallery for the new year I will remove the gallery for the past year.

After the upgrade, the galleries here will be a bit different then they are here now. They will utilize jquery and light box which I have already started using in new articles. Example can be found here, just click on a pic.

This also means that when we finally depreciate the gallery there will no longer be member photos or anything else. The gallery will be completely removed from the server and the database. While I have not set a time frame for the gallery to be fully depreciated, we will be moving forward with this quickly. If you have a gallery and wish to have your photos, please contact me via pm.

02/21/12 01:52 PM What Is A Colony Alert

What Is A Colony Alert?

A Colony Alert is the staff issuing warnings to inform the glider community of a person, persons, or a business entity that may not be on the up-and-up.

Only the Owners/Admins have the right to issue a Colony Alert, so if you have a situation that you feel deserves attention, please gather up your information and forward it to us here.

Guidelines For A Colony Alert

We, as the Owners of GliderCENTRAL, will only get involved when GliderCENTRAL is brought into the picture either through a direct sale as described below, through the SGH which is owned by GliderCENTRAL or by misrepresentation.

If the sale took place on GliderCENTRAL, and you believe you have a legitimate complaint, you MUST have placed an AD through ClassifiedCENTRAL OR been contracted through the PM system as a result of an Ad.

GliderCENTRAL will not look into three way trades or other alternative payments such as products, other animals, etc.

Complaints will only be accepted and reviewed within 4 months of the transaction.

There must be documented proof of any and all transactions or failed attempts to collect by either party involved.

Being contacted through the PM system as the result of a "brag post" does NOT constitute a deal taking place on GliderCENTRAL.

False reviews on SGH constitute involving GliderCENTRAL.
