All of us here at
Quilting Daily are excited to meet you and want to welcome you to the site! We
want this to be a positive, encouraging, fun place where you feel welcome and
safe and above all else, we want to help build a community based on a shared
We want this to be
a very open community and will only intervene if absolutely necessary. However,
in order to maintain a positive and safe environment for everyone, there are
some simple rules listed here that we all need to follow. So here they are...
Conduct and Posting Etiquette – “Don’t be a jerk”
. Debating, discussion, and even passionate
disagreement are fine, but we cannot tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, or
personal attacks. Posts of this kind will be edited or deleted.
. Profanity, racism, or other offensive discussions
will not be tolerated. Posts of this kind will be edited or deleted. We have the
final say as to what does and does not violate community standards.
. We encourage you to upload your own custom avatar to
help showcase your own personality. But do not upload an animated avatar, an
avatar that contains nudity, or is otherwise offensive. Avatars that may be
confused with staff or moderator avatars are also not allowed.
. Be tolerant of “newbie” type questions and help
them out. We all were new at this one time or another and we want to encourage
more people to get involved with art. There are no stupid questions!
. Post your messages and images in the appropriate
area. Moderators may move your content if they feel it’s better suited to
. Do not post your messages and images in multiple
forums or galleries. Duplicate posts may be deleted.
Protecting Rights – “Don’t upload
stuff you don’t own”
. Discussion of any content – whether yours or
someone else’s – is encouraged!
. Feel free to link to any content on other sites as
long as it's appropriate for this community.
. Feel free to embed any content on other sites
(RSS feeds, YouTube, Flickr, etc.) as long as it was meant by the owner to be
. Feel free to upload content of your own as
long as you are the creator of the content.
. If we discover that content has been uploaded or
embedded without the permission or intent of the content creator, we will
need to remove it.
. IMPORTANT NOTE: In an effort to extend your reach and make more
artists aware of what you're doing, we may share some of the
contributions you've made to the community. By posting content
(including but not limited to images) on Quilting Daily,
you agree that Interweave and its community members may share it on
social media sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, or other social media
outlets that may come into existence. We may also provide RSS feeds or
widgets for some of this content, but only summaries or thumbnails,
never the full content. If we want to use your contributions for
another purpose, we will ask your permission first.
Advertising and Solicitation – “Advertise
where you’re supposed to”
. Promoters, retailers, manufacturers, etc., may not
advertise in the blogs, forums, galleries, or public groups. Posts of this kind
will be deleted.
. You may include your group, association, or company
name and a link to your web site in your personal signature block.
. Use of the private messaging system for advertising
of any kind is prohibited.
. We encourage businesses to contact us about advertising
Children – “Sorry, no kids under 13
. We comply with the Children’s Online Privacy
Protection Act (COPPA), which applies to children under the age of 13.
. Our sites are not directed at children under the
age of 13 and we do not solicit nor desire to collect any personally
identifiable information from such individuals. If we become aware that a
person under the age of 13 is attempting to or has submitted information via this
site, we will notify the person and remove any personally identifiable
Miscellaneous – “Stuff that just has to be
. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
Multiple accounts undermine trust that there are real, honest people behind
each account. Moderators may remove accounts that are found to be duplicates.
. The decision to edit, move, or delete a post, or to
ban a user, is at our sole discretion without prior notification or explanation
to the member.
. Members who willfully or repeatedly violate the
forum rules may be banned from the site. This is something we only want to do
as a last resort.
. While these rules cover most common situations, we
cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take
actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not abused and stay a
positive, fun, and safe place for everyone.
If you see someone abusing
the site, please click the Report Abuse link located in every Forum post under "More." This sends a message to a private forum for our moderators to review. The
moderators may not be able to respond to you personally and you may not see
immediate action, but please know that your message has been received and taken
