PostSubject: Forum Rules   Sun Feb 08, 2009 7:31 pm

Before you start posting, please take the time to read these general guidelines for the forum
and follow them accordingly.
Not following rules could lead to banning of your account and/or IP address.

My guidelines aren't as hardcore as all that.
This board is all about Freedom of speech but with "kindness" as a back drop to that belief.
I want everybody here and who comes here to feel welcomed at all times.
We come from all ends of the earth and all different belief systems, but with one similarity....
our love of books

Cutting and pasting information from other boards or sites is perfectly fine with me
(IE book excerpts, youtubes, links,
news in general) that's all cool.

Posting pictures.....well I shall leave that up to you but with emphasis on tasteful.
In other words no explicit full frontal dingleberries.
No special delivery "packages". Otherwise the site I go through will pull it and give us warnings.

In closing let this be Utopia for all bookworms.

Its going to be great!!

Are you with me!!
Your loving

Webmistress

Personal Lives
Please DO NOT share personal information as this is a public forum and for your safety only
share email or other personal
information through pm or by private email. We want our members to be safe.
Remember, the people we are talking to may
not actually be who they say they are. If you wish to discuss the inner workings
of your life privately via PM, go ahead, but
not everyone needs to know everything about you. This forum may have non-members
and or lurkers popping in at any given
time reading your info.
Remember safety first.

Just to add on to the safety topic, I have made certain categories private due to the fact they contain personal photos of family member I'm sure you don't want floating out there on the Internet. The Writing room has unpublished and fanfiction work that can easily be claimed as someone else's work.

The Writer's Room
The Market
The Boudoir and Dungeon
Memories
If you have any problems please contact Me or a Moderator.

Tammy, Mandy or Anita

videos from youtube.
However, do limit yourself on how many you put in a single post.

Forum Rules
1) Now, here's the one that is a rule that MUST be followed. Personal attacks are totally uncool
and not what we are about. So please keep it nice.

2) Always be polite and respectful to other members and their opinions and beliefs. Unobligated
to agree or follow them, you still have no right to try and change them..
Flaming, trolling, bashing, remarks that are racist, sexist or of homophobic
nature and insulting people for personal preference and opinions are behaviors that are a BIG no no
and not tolerated.
You're all friends here so there is no need to say anthing negative. Of course if you are joking around thats
fine, it should be obvious what you are doing.
Keep in mind that this site will have members from all races, nationalities, age groups and political, sexual and
religious preferences.
Its okay to politely disagree with other members, but judging another member or being rude not tolerated here at all.
It could result in banning of your account and/or IP address.

3) Keep smack talk about other forums to a minimum it's just bad policy to be bashing another message board.

4) No Spamming. Consequences include a warning followed by possible temporary ban

5) Don't spam emoticons. It's annoying and it takes up bandwidth.

6) No X-Rated pictures. Keep the porn out of the forums.. In other words, no "Danglies" LOL.

7) No vulgar posts. Keep it at least fairly clean.

8 Religion: Please do not bash or promote any particular religion. This would include derogatory remarks
about a member pertaining to said religions, but seeing as we are open minded on this board,
freedom of speech is your right and encouraged as long as "love thy neighbor" is formost in your mind.

*************************************************************************************************
-The same rules apply for the chat box located at the top of the forum and the Shout box on the portal
page as do for the forum.
Please be respectful of all members and their opinions.

-We have forums for virtually everything here so keep to the topics in each forum, but If you can't find
what you are looking for please start a new topic or if you think it deserves its own forum, then please
pm me or a moderator Mandy or Tammy with the suggestion

-Please report member conflicts to an Administrator or Moderator via PM. Do NOT try to solve it yourself
and participating will just encourages their behavior. We will do it discreetly so no worries of backlash.

-If you think a rule needs to be added please PM me and we'll discuss whether or not it's valid.

Thank you for reading these important guidelines, and we hope you have no troubles in the future.

PS
If you have suggestions or comments on how to make the site more user friendly, please contact me.


With that said...Have fun!!

See? That wasn't so tough!

Thanks for stopping by!
Nataly
