What are the "Terms Of Use" for the Message Boards"?

This will be an ongoing work in progress. I am learning how this board works right along with you, so please watch this thread for new information.

Nothing much changes from the former message boards as far as policy goes, but we have made some additions to the rules..

  1. These boards are for BEAUTY PROFESSIONALS - Consumers are encouraged to visit our sister site: http://www.beautytech.INFO
  2. If you see any offensive or way off topic posts here, please email the the Content Staff and the posts will be removed them ASAP.
  3. Any posts degrading ANY ethnic race will be removed immediately upon the Content Staff notification of such a post.
  5. LIABLE INFORMATION: Watch what you say here on these boards.. you CAN be held personally liable for making false or derogatory statements.
  6. Take all care to post your message in the proper forum. Double posting should be done by linking or referring to the relevant post location. Example: You post to Swap & Shop that you have items for sale, you CAN post to the appropriate Beauty Career forum(s) that there is a new post in Swap & Shop.. do NOT repost your entire message again in the other forum
  7. FLAMING will NOT be tolerated. We are here as professionals and adults. At all times remain respectful of others. PMS and "reading into what isn't there" excuses are not acceptable reasons for poor behavior.
  8. Make use of the PREVIEW screen. Look over your post to be sure it looks and reads the way you want before posting it.
  9. Do not do the moderators job. If you see an ALL CAPS post, spam or some flaming going on, please resist commenting. Instead please contact the forum moderator.
  10. Please post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or colored text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Excessive use of word shortcuts, "chatspeak" will be frowned up: R U using CND AC? Translation=Are you using Creative Acrylic?
  11. Use descriptive subject lines at all times
  12. NEVER post personal information to a public board for your own safety
  13. The moderating team reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users.
  14. We now have a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offenses in a three month period. Action will be taken base on the seriousness of the warnings and solely at the discretion of the Content Team.
  15. Our policy is to remove first and ask questions later, depending on the severity of the infraction of the policies.
  16. If you need more information or have a question about the Boards, THE FAQ is HERE

These additional policies apply to the forums as noted:

SkinTech There is NO advertising allowed in the SkinTech forum, period the end no discussion, it will be removed without notice.

General advertising should be made inthe appropriate section: Industry news, posts pointing to the news title can be made in another section BUT NOT inthe SkinTech area (that would be advertising)
