Forum Rules & Guidelines

Post by Berlie » Mon Mar 07, 2005 12:50 pm

1. Treat other members and admins with respect, no flaming, insulting or rude comments toward another person or their poetry.

2. Heated discussions and debates are allowed but keep it civil.

3. You can use profanity in a post/poem as long as it is not too extreme or excessive. (poems with profanity should not be posted in the General Poetry forum)

4. Feel free to offer suggestions and critique on others work but be polite and supportive when you give advice.

5. If someone offers you advice or makes suggestions about your poem remember that they are offering their OPINION and their advice is not personal. The only person's opinion on a poem that really counts is the person who wrote it.

6. We ask that you do not flood the forums with new poetry posts. Please only submit 1-2 new poems per day.

7. If you are posting poetry looking for comments please take the time to read other's posted poetry and comment on their work in return.

8. Avatar size restrictions:

No animated avatars.
No larger than 100x125
No vulgar, rude or offensive images.

9. Signature Guidelines:

Keep it short and sweet, no more than 5 lines. Only one image allowed in a signature. Image should be small, no larger than 65 pixels in height and not animated. Image counts as one of the signature lines. No vulgar, rude or offensive language.

10. Poetry Storage

Never rely on these forums or the "Poets Pages" to store your poetry. Most of the forums are set to auto prune older posts. Your poetry posts may also be lost due to technical problems. Always keep a hard copy of your work in a safe place.

11. Post your poetry in the proper forum and follow the guidelines as to what is and is not allowed in each forum.

The following type of postings are not allowed in any forum. This is not an all inclusive list and moderators have the right to remove any post they feel is not appropriate.

1. Posts/poems that promote hatred and violence.
2. Posts/poems that use racial slurs or derogatory sexual statements.
3. Posts/poems that threaten violence against someone known or not known.
4. Posts/poems that bash, slam, flame, etc another member of the forums unless it is done in obvious good humor and no harm is intended.
5. Posts/poems that could be considered pornography that explicitly detail a sexual act.

If you make a post that do any of the above, your post/poem may be removed with or without notice. If you continue to make posts that break these rules after you have been warned you may find yourself banned from these forums.
