» Cafe Rules

Welcome to the Flute Portal Cafe! This section of the Flute Portal is for more open discussion that is not bound by the same strict topicality rules as the rest of the forum.

Even though the topicality rules are not as strict, that does not mean that this is a place for "free-for-all" type postings. It is not a place for members to advance personal agendas, advertise themselves or a product, or to engage in negative or provoking rants about totally non-flute related subjects. We ask members to use good judgment about what they choose to share.

Because of the looser guidelines, it is important that discussions that originate in these forums stay in these forums. That means:

- No linking to these forums. If you are engaged in a discussion elsewhere on the forums (outside of the Cafe), you are not permitted to post any links that lead to discussions inside of the Cafe.

- Keep it in the Cafe. Members are asked to avoid continuing any discussions that begin within the Cafe anywhere else on the forums.

- Don't let freedom go to your head! Please remember that the more lax atmosphere within the Cafe is meant to stay within the Cafe. When you venture back into the main forums, please remember the guidelines that apply there. ;)

Also, each sub-forum within the FPC has posted rules--please take a moment to read them when you visit those forums.

And as always, the main site guidelines apply here as well. Here they are again:

This is a community forum that is used by people of all different ages, races, religious/spiritual beliefs and backgrounds. As such, the most important (and most strictly enforced) rule on this forum is courtesy.

No matter what the topic being discussed, and no matter how strongly you feel about another members statements or beliefs, you are expected to be polite and respectful. Even if you are engaged in a debate-oriented discussion, you must still treat other members with respect.

This means:

-No bad language (We have language filters installed, but it is better not to need them)
-No inflammatory rhetoric of any kind (religious, political, racial or otherwise--this includes quotations from scripture and quotations from any type of political or racial manifesto)
-No derogatory statements or observations regarding another member

If someone annoys you so much that you feel the need to tell them that they are stupid and wrong, then you need to withdraw from the discussion. The moderators will deal with anyone who is making a nuisance of themselves. If you choose to tell another member what you think of them in negative terms, you will be banned from the forum. This is our no-nonsense policy. If you are in the "gray area" between good behavior and banned behavior, you will be given a single warning from the moderator. After that you are out. If you want to have a more pointed conversation with another member, confine it to the personal messaging system and keep it there. The PM system is for members to make contact and to discuss things that are not necessarily topical to the forum itself.

-No selling of anything. - No "ads". This includes photos of anything that you are selling, accompanied by any sort of "sales pitch" or "come on" (or anything that can be construed as such) to potential customers, and no links to websites or stores off-site. If you have flutes or accessories that you want to sell, use the classified ads forum. This applies to CDs and music downloads as well (with or without photos).

Any topic that is deemed inappropriate or topics that violate fundamental courtesy rules will be deleted.

Thanks for taking the time to read and understand these rules.
