Guidelines

“Helpful Rules for Our Quilting Community Board”

Welcome to our Quilting Forum. 

These guidelines are in place to help guide you in the proper direction when it comes to posting on our Quilting Forum. 

We are an open, international, and multi-cultural community. Everyone is encouraged to participate. 

We have come together here to rejoice in the art of quilting. The primary mission of our community is to help each other share and grow as quilters.

We strive to create and maintain a cheerful, nurturing, encouraging, friendly and fun environment.

Our quilting community board is moderated. We have standards of behavior based on common sense and common courtesy.

Along this page is where you will find our guidelines and rules for using our quilting community board.

The guidelines we institute are in addition to those rules of common sense and courtesy, and we are not able to outline for every possible situation.

The simple rules we write here can in no way constitute the entire scope of how Quilting Support’s Quilting Forum will be managed.

We can only provide our guidelines and do our best to maintain this site.  We do this with its original purpose in mind - providing a place for people to get together, share their creativity, talent, and provide support for one another in a positive way.

We expect and welcome contributions that stimulate and add to our creative atmosphere. While encouraging all discussions, we expect all participants to treat each other with respect and courtesy.

Although the moderators of Quilting Support will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review all comments. All messages express the views of the author, and the owners of Quilting Support will not be held responsible for the any content of any message.

Sometimes it’s hard to know what is appropriate to post.  We understand, up to a point.

By posting on our site you are agreeing to these rules and guidelines, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate any laws.

We reserve the right to remove, edit, or move any content item for any reason.  All original posts are reviewed before they are live on the site.  Comments are monitored but posted before review.  Offensive material will be deleted without warning.

Simple Guidelines

New?  That’s wonderful! 

We are a quilting community that loves to welcome others. 

When introducing yourself be sure to let us know how long you have been quilting and where you’re from.  There are people from all over the world that visit this site.  It’s neat to see where everyone is coming from and their points of view are a reflection of that.

We are an international, multi-cultural community. Please remember and respect that.

Be polite. The Quilting Forum should be a place we want gather to share information, friendship, and encouragement.

When asking a question, please be thorough so you can get appropriate answers.

Prohibited Content

  •  Arguments or posting bad experiences are allowed for venting.  However, "screaming" and spiraling anger are not permitted. If you start to beat a dead horse with your posts, they will be removed.
  •  Please do not post religious content.  This site is not anti-religion. This site is just not the place for it and we do not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. 
  • Do not post images with copyrighted patterns of other quilters without their permission. Make sure any images are your own.
  • Links are not able to be posted within your original post.  In order to get a link into your post, you will need to contact us before or shortly after posting.  If we find that your suggested link is appropriate, we will edit your post to include the link.

Profile Signatures

  • Keep your signatures to no more than 3 lines total. This is still plenty of room for fun and creativity.
  • If your signature is to contain a link to your website/blog/store, then please reciprocate and link to our home page from your site before you post.  This will be checked before your post will be approved.  Contact us to include the appropriate link in your post. 
  • Signatures may contain a maximum of 2 off-site links to blogs, shops, etc. These signature lines are considered passive advertising, a privilege of this site if they are used properly.
  • Non-compliant signatures will be edited or removed upon discovery without notice. 

Advertising/Solicitation Is Not Permitted

  • We realize that many of our members have their own off-site blogs and/or operate businesses that relate to quilting. Professionals are every bit as welcome here as beginners. We ask that you participate here as a regular/genuine member who coincidentally has a profession or off-site blog that relates to quilting.
  • You may not exploit your posts to actively advertise or promote your blog, your company, product or site or to solicit customers. This includes but is not limited to your own specials, sales, open houses, products you sell on your website, hardwall store, etc.
  • Do not include either your business name or a link to your site inside your posts. They will not work.  Instead use a signature and make arrangements with us.
  • If your signature is to contain a link to your website/blog/store, then please make sure to reciprocate and link to this site's home page from your site and contact us with this information.  Our system automatically removes links and would need us to place them for you appropriately.
  • Posts that are deemed to be advertising or promotional in nature will be edited or deleted upon discovery and without notice by our moderators.
  • Should you wish to advertise on our site, please send an email to support@quiltingsupport.com (Please use the subject line: Inquiring About Paid Advertising at QuiltingSupport.com.)

Acceptable Content

  • Consumer complaints can be helpful. Please post them in the appropriate thread. These include accounts of unhappy shopping experiences, complaints about sale, discount, coupon policies, and/or customer service you were not pleased with, etc.
  • A friendly, informative and spirited debate can be a great deal of fun. It's an opportunity to see things from other points of view and, perhaps, to learn something new. We should laugh and learn our way through it.

Wrap Up

We reserve the right to add more to these guidelines at any time.  The intent is to keep this as a place that everyone wants to enjoy.

We look forward to hearing from you.


 Happy quilting,
