Exclamation Visitor Messaging - ALL MEMBERS MUST READ

Everyone has noticed that the Visitor Messaging/Profile Messaging has been turned off for the entire forum.

The VM privilege was abused again. We will be returning them eventually (please do not ask when - you'll know when they're back).

However, to keep them from being removed again, we need everyone to follow the rules.

You may NOT advertise in VMs. That includes threads/events in BI, as well as off-site.

You may NOT post links off-site in VMs.

You may NOT trade in VMs. Only Trading Teddies may trade on the site, and only in the Trading Den.

You may NOT conduct graphic shop business in VMs. Use the Shop threads.

You may NOT Role Play in VMs.

You may NOT give personal information in VMs. Nor may you ask for any.

You may NOT fight or argue in visitor messages.

Basically, if you are not allowed to say it in the open forum - do not say it in a visitor message.

And if you see something inappropriate - report it

So, what can you do/say in VMs?

Visitor messaging is a privilege. It allows you to speak one-on-one with other members and chat.

However, all content of visitor messages must be appropriate for ANY member to read.

If someone leaves an inappropriate VM for you - report it.

If you leave inappropriate VMs, your VM privileges will be removed.

If you advertise your shop/club/event in VMs, you will lose your VM privileges AND your shop/club/event will be closed or deleted.
