Message Board Usage Guidelines
Here at BroadwayWorld, we love theatre, and the incredible community of artists and fans that comprise it. To that end, we want to ensure that our message boards are a positive, respectful place for people to share thoughts, opinions, rumors, theories, hopes, and much more.
We respect the fact that each individual message board poster brings a unique perspective, and we appreciate and champion that. We cherish the fact that we have offered theatre fans from around the world the opportunity to connect and share their thoughts for over a decade, and we value and defend each poster’s right to debate all things theatrical, as long as the discussions are constructive and not personally malicious.
While we all will have differing opinions as to where that specific line is, as long as everyone tries to tread on the constructive side, the BWW message boards will continue to be a special and unique place for theatre-lovers to congregate. If everyone errs on the side of being a good, thoughtful, empathetic poster, BWW and the theatrical community will be a better place.
In that effort, we would like to remind everyone of our Message Board Usage Guidelines:
· Please post with courtesy (and common sense) - no use of profanity, obscenities, or name calling.
· For your own protection - no bootleg appeals! For the posting of links to websites with copyrighted material, you may post an excerpt if available, please include a web link as well if one exists.
· One account per person. Duplicate accounts will be removed, and abuse of this policy will result in permanent removal of access to the site.
· Profanity is strictly banned from the board. Its use will result in post removal. Repeat offenders will be banned.
Users who violate the above policies will have their messages removed and will first be privately warned by our moderator team. After 3 warnings, your account will be suspended for 3 days. At this time, your account will display as 'Suspended'. Future violations upon your return will result in a 30 day ban, followed by a 90 day ban and then the complete suspension and permanent removal of your account access.
