It is the desire of this site, Pelham Puppets Online (or PPO), to allow people of all ages to share and enjoy the hobby of collecting Pelham Puppets. Just like any free web site there are rules that will be asked to be followed by everyone using the site. These rules will allow everyone the same equal opportunity to share in the site. To that end there are two areas available to visitors of the site, the Public Area and Members Area.
The first is the Public Area where individuals can look up basic information such as history, timeline, and puppet types as well as pictures of the Pelham Puppets. You do not need to be a registered member to use this area.
The second is the Members Area where registered members can see much more information and use the Pelham Puppet Online Forum to talk about Pelham Puppets, post sales and trades, and participate in various discussions.
In order to become a member and use the forum, it will be expected that any person will follow the rules.

Due to copy write infringement issues and potential lawsuits we ask members to refrain from the posting of links to other web sites unless they have asked and been given permission by the site administrators. Posting any image is saying you have permission or own the copyright as we have no way of checking, if in doubt ask the PPO management team.
If you wish to post a link to your own site or advertise any other site please email the management team through a private email and provide the sites address. We will clear the approval once we have viewed the site, however we will not ask the sites permission as this will be a huge task. This is a measure to stem the ever increasing tide of spammers. Unfortunately, violation of these policies can lead to removal of the member from the site.
