|Rules For Posting In The Just For Fun Forums
1.NO CRITIQUES! If you are asked for help or suggestions, do so in Private Messages only!
2.NO ILLEGAL OR OBJECTIONABLE MATERIAL! Illegal, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, harassing, threatening, invasion of another person's privacy, or a violation of copyright will result in deletion of the offensive post and banning from the site!
3.NO FLOODING! Do not flood the forums with your own work. Do not flood the forums with anyone’s work with the express purpose of burying someone else’s work! The result will be that the offensive post will be deleted and probable banning from the site.
4.NO HIJACKING! Do not "hijack" threads with comments unrelated to the topic at hand. Do not post a response just to pull your topic back to the top of the page! Do not double post to the same comment twice: If a post from another member has already been responded to, do not respond to that same post again…even if you thought of something more on the matter! EDIT your original post to include the new thought! If your post is part of an on-going conversation about a work, fine! If your post has nothing to do with an on-going conversation that was inspired by the work, has nothing to do with either the work or the conversational response that the work inspired, or is something that would be best suited to a Private Message it will be deleted! Banning from the site is also a possibility.
5.NO ADVERTISING! Refrain from posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of unauthorized solicitation. Your signature is allowed to contain limited promotional text and/or links.
6.KEEP IT FRIENDLY! These forums are for praise and encouragement! Arguments are NOT allowed on the boards! Any disagreements or disputes should be handled via Private Message only! On-going arguments on the open forums will result in the topic being locked down and possible banning! If someone has a problem with another member, REMEMBER…you have an IGNORE BUTTON!
If you have any questions not addressed on the rule’s list, please feel free to contact one of the moderators via private message! THANK YOU and HAPPY POSTING!
