Behavior & Content Policy
One of our goals on our community is to provide an environment where people feel safe, welcome, and free from abusive, disruptive or inappropriate behavior. We hope to provide members with an ability to express themselves and express their creativity while maintaining a respect for our community. Site administrators, moderators and staff members reserve the right to enforce our policy which can include deleting any user content and/or banning accounts or IP addresses.
The term "content" includes all user submitted content from usernames, profile information, artwork, forum posts, avatars, and private messages. Content may be flagged as inappropriate if it is unsuitable for our target audience (PG-13). Inappropriate content also includes any content that is disruptive to the services and operation of our website such as spam, flooding, or content aimed to deceive such as imitating a moderator. Examples of inappropriate content include but are not limited to offensive content, copyright, discrimination, harassment, or content just not suitable for our audience. If a user is found submitting any content deemed inappropriate the content will be removed, their account may be temporarily or permanently banned (all without warning), and in excessive cases IP addresses will be banned.
We believe in people's right to free speech, but we will encourage and enforce a policy of interrupting content or discussions that turn unfriendly or aggressive. This includes any site content submitted by members.
The following rules are to help keep our forums of value to readers.
- Stay on topic (within reason).
- Try not to duplicate recent topics (search to see if a topic was recently posted on your subject)
- Do not flood, spam, advertise, or post inappropriate links
- Only advertise other websites if they are on-topic and appropriate (violators may be banned). When following forum links, visit at your own risk.
- Do no imitate other members or moderators
- Do not discuss any illegal or inappropriate content
On various parts of our website, artists are given the ability to express themselves and submit artwork. In our goal to sustain a level of quality that keeps our website of value to the community, we reserve the right to remove any artwork that suggests that little effort was made. Flagging artwork as "no effort" is at the discretion of site administrators, moderators or staff. We are not removing your artwork to prevent you from creating, but we politely ask that you honestly put effort into your artwork and use this as an opportunity to improve as an artist.
As visitors or members of our community, we welcome you and aim to provide a friendly community where you feel free to express yourself and grow as artists. Our rules are set in place not to restrict, but to encourage every members ability to contribute in the most safe and friendly manner possible. Thank you to all our members and visitors for respecting our goals of creating a welcoming online community. Please be sure to also read our terms and conditions of use and privace policy for further information on ways we keep our community safe, friendly and appropriate.
