Dead Craft - Forum Guidlines!
IT’S SIMPLE. RESPECT EACH OTHER.
This forum is aimed for those people who love to learn, show their skills, and their work and better practice from it all together.
We know our community members feel strongly about the importance of this. We ask that you show your fellow community members, competitors, and site staff the same respect and courtesy you would show anyone when meeting face-to-face.
Following the values and rules below, we can all expect to be treated with respect. This code of conduct applies to all forums and interactions, including community forums.
Please adhere to the following:
RESPECT THE WORDS OF OTHERS
This needs no further explination.
BE OPEN TO PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE LEVELS
New members, people from other backgrounds, and anyone in between can offer valuable insight and ideas. Keeping an open mind helps everyone keep emotions at bay and keeps the topic in focus.
Don’t personally attack or harass others because you disagree with them.
All community members should never come under personal attack or feel reluctant to share their ideas, opinions, submissions or work with the community. Name-calling, accusing someone of malicious behavior, insulting someone’s work, or other personal attacks will not be tolerated.
BE CONSTRUCTIVE AND FACILITATE MEANINGFUL DISCUSSIONS
We respect and encourage excitement and spirited debate in the forums! If you see a topic spiraling into a negative debate, jump in and bring some positive focus. However, if you encounter someone who is purposely trying to antagonize you, ignore it and report it (see below).
Don’t be a troll.
Posting with the direct intention of inflaming a topic for the sole purpose of provoking a negative emotional response from the readers is not acceptable.
LEAVE YOUR INTOLERANCE AT THE DOOR
You may have feelings and opinions about religion or politics, but this is a jewellery / crafting forum. Keep the discussions on topic and away from controversy.
We don’t tolerate hate speech or bigotry of any kind.
Do not post anything that alienates or offends individuals based on race, sexual orientation, gender, country, religion, etc. These types of posts, whether directed at an individual or a group, will not be tolerated. As per our Terms, you may not post anything that is obscene, illegal, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, encourages criminal conduct, gives rise to civil liability, violates any law, harms minors, impersonates others, disparages Topcoder or our affiliates and partners, or is otherwise inappropriate.
SHARE RELEVANT AND HELPFUL INFORMATION
Your fellow community members would love to hear about the newest trends, latest technologies, and great tools you use to enhance your skills and productivity! Share these in the relevant track forums.
Don’t post solicitations or spam.
IF YOU SEE A PERSISTENT TROLL...
We depend on you, the community, to report problems when they arise. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to any post you feel violates the rules.
Violations will be edited or removed and violators may have action taken against their account.
We strive to be a respectful, lively community where opinions can be expressed and members can learn and grow. It’s up to all of us to make the forum a place where like-minded individuals can thrive.
