Here is a definition of the word "Community'.

c. An interacting population of various kinds of individuals (as species) in a common location.

When you first join ActiveRain, be sure to read about the community. Figure out if you are going to take the correct road and follow the rules.

Which Route

 

ActiveRain built this website and all of us are part of the community so we need to make it a better place but we must follow the rules. 

ActiveRain encourages “Free Speech” but we all know there are limitations here when writing and publishing on the internet. 

Do not violate copyright laws. Do not republish someone else’s content without permission. Do not put someone else’s picture on your blog unless you ask and best to get written permission. The word for this is “Stealing”. If you need a photo, go take your own.  

 

You must not violate any Fair Housing Laws. Violations of this nature can cause more problems besides the Activerain removal. You could find yourself in the middle of a Federal lawsuit and I am sure no one wants that headache!

As we know, there is a point system for posts on our blog but only our own work counts towards earning points. What doesn’t count: Copying someone else’s work, poems, jokes, long Bible verses, data off websites, and recipes.

Speak your mind but do not hurt anyone else’s feelings. Do not slander, attack or stalk another member. And if you feel someone has done this to you or another member, it is best to notify ActiveRain and let them take care of the problem. Do not expose personal information or disgrace another member. 

 

Anyone who violates the rules of the community can be removed so follow the rules and have FUN!

Activerain is an awesome community with easy to follow rules.  What road are you going to follow?

This is why I stay. Respect is earned here and not given freely unless it's the obvious kind. Life is short and as Dr. Wayne Dyer says, it's much more beneficial to be kind than to be right in some cases.

Good morning, Kristin Hamilton nicely written post.... everything submitted on any public platform should be done with common sense....

This is an important reminder for all of us.

Some of the guideline links do need to be updated.

Hi Laura,

In my own life, I try to live the same philosophy as well. I might know I'm correct and the other person doesn't agree, but why argue over it. My husband used to say "What does it matter....don't argue" and all of a sudden I realized he was right. Life is too short to argue. Have a great weekend.

Hi Barbara,

I totally agree with you. It is easier to get along with people and be nice. I make sure I do not write anything that might hurt someone's feelings.

Hi Roy Kelley 

Which one needs to be updated? Thanks for stopping by and have a great upcoming weekend.

This needs to be updated:

Points now seem to be awarded for anything.

I also have posted really good recipes I created or shared and took pictures. I did get points for these.

Posted by Kristin Hamilton CA Realtor, (909) 557-6966- Specialize 55+ Communties Banning (Sun Lakes Realty) over 5 years ago

I am a terrible cook, so no recipes for me... but I have been known to put a bible verse or two out there. They are typically not long enough to get points. :)

Hi Joni Staples 

Sometimes the content is more important than getting points anyway. I so enjoy reading your blog.

Aww.. thank you for the encouraging words. I appreciate it. :)))

Huntsville is a lovely community and you post many great Localisms promoting the area. My aunt, Dr. Dorothy Huskey, lived there for many years and was connected to the University as a teaching professor and left a college trust/endowment in her will. Every time I think of Huntsville, I remember all the colored photos of her church events and flowers/vegetables growing in her yard. She sent me photos all the time and many plants were unknown to me at the time.

Kristin, This was a very well written reminder, with most of it being plain old common sense.  Bottom line is we all need to respect each other.

Hi Bette,

I never really read any rude comments but sometimes a writer will elude to one. Just as well I don't see them. We must respect each other. Have a great weekend Bette.
