Rules Of Engagement Read Before Posting - Updated May 2021

Welcome to the community. We aim for a self governing community. Although we know that people come on in a bad mood, or perhaps with other things on their mind, we try and aim for this short list of rules for all and ask that you leave your bad day at the door and not bring it in with you.

CODE OF CONDUCT

1. Be constructive and respectful to everyone. Do not respond to people who are rude, insulting or argumentative. Do not be banned with them.

2. Do not take over someone else's thread. Open your own if you have a different question.
2a: USE SEARCH FIRST!!

3. Do not keep posting if you are not responded to quickly. We are all in different time zones and may not actually be on yet!

4. https://translate.google.com If somebody comes on asking for help who is from other country and not speaking English try to help in their language

5. image threads are allowed at one person, one thread per month. Keep self promotion for your things happening away from this site.... New gallery showing? Allowed. Been in a magazine? Allowed. Uploaded new work here? Not allowed. Marketing and Keyword help

6. PG rated Only. The site has all ages on it. Restrict adult language, avatars, and content, to adult sites.

7. No religion or politics in the main discussion area. At all. Ever. Under any guise. If we even just sniff it in your post, we spray it with one week or more acting ban bleach.

8. Proper subject titles only. Help. Hi. etc. Are not subject lines

9. ALL images you load on the site or in a discussion must be copyright to you, or you have licence/permission to use.

10. Name and shame is not allowed on this forum. If you have any concerns about another member contact me direct. If you have concerns about their art, contact dmca@stites.com

11. No racism, sexism, ageism. We cannot go back in time to correct things so we will not discuss them here.

12. Do not discuss other competing sites. If you have a query about one, just go to their forums and ask there. Never send other members off to them.

13. If adding a signature to your post you may use one link only.

14. Thread crossover is not allowed. If you have something to say in one thread, say it there. If a thread is closed by a moderator and you open a new thread on the subject you will receive an automatic ban...possibly an exceptionally long one if the post warrants.

15. "Is this art" threads. If you have to ask, no it is not!

16. At no time will a member argue with a Moderators decision on the board. The Mods are beyond fair so if you are asked to stop a behaviour it is for a reason and you are asked to just stop or be suspended. We do not discuss Moderators decisions on the board. Sometimes we do not discuss them off it either.

Updating of the guidelines: Please note this page is subject to updates without notice. We urge members to check the page on a regular basis.
