We want our forum to be a safe space for discussion and questions. As a result, we have a one-strike policy. After the first rule violation, you will be banned from the forum. If you have questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rules: NO HATE SPEECH OF ANY KIND. This is the one exception to our one-strike policy. Any hate speech (racism, homophobia, sexism, etc) will NOT be tolerated and will result in a permanent ban immediately. KEEP IT CIVIL. No name-calling, bullying, mean spirited arguing, etc. We all know what it looks like when someone isn't civil in a comment section or discussion, and no one wants to be that person, so don't be. KEEP IT ON TOPIC. Try to stay as close to the topic as possible. If a discussion devolves too much, a moderator will step in and start a new thread. KEEP EVERYTHING PG-13. We work with kids here, so keep it family-friendly. NO SELF-PROMOTION OUTSIDE OF APPROVED THREADS. It's really great that you run a business, but this is not the place to promote it. We will occasionally have threads where you can promote your business, but keep it out of discussions and comment sections. This includes MLMs. NO POLITICS. We're a music store, and these forums are to be used for music-related discussion only. NO "REAL-LIFE." Do not a) message people you don't know without their consent; b) stalk people on social media; c) contact workplaces, family members, etc. If someone does something that makes you mad enough to doxx them, block them and/or message your admin. CHECK BEFORE YOU POST. Duplicate posts will get taken down. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO BLOCK ANYONE. Take blocks, bans, and mutes with grace. The admin team does not work for you, and our primary concern is the safety and comfort of the group over individual members. IF YOU AREN'T SURE WHETHER OR NOT YOU SHOULD POST IT, JUST DON'T. Or ask us.
