Keep Personal Life Separate (No posting about other members)

Postby Llisa » Tue Mar 29, 2005 5:26 pm

There has recently been an upcropping of familiarity in posts, that the moderating team finds unacceptable, as they potentially can cause future problems.

Please DO NOT do any of the following:

* Refer to conversations that you have had with members outside of problem pages

* Use a member's first name (as opposed to their online alias)

* Post problems that involve members on this site

The last one is relatively difficult to get around, especially when you have been inviting your friends and family to join the site...which we think is great! But we're sure that you can see where the problems can arise when those people you are posting about are able to view your problems with them. Things can turn pretty ugly when people are reading threads about themselves, and can end up doing more harm than good. It can also make giving advice feel awkward for other members, and jeopardise your anonymity.

Above all, however, we are thinking of you. There have been times in the past where members have gotten themselves into near physical danger because of posts that were made on here regarding other members.

The main idea is this: What happens in Problem Pages, stays in Problem Pages. If you want to get to know members better by talking to them on MSN, meeting up with them, or texting them...that's fine. But please keep that life seperate from the one that you maintain on this site.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me, or anyone from the moderating team.
HE has all the answers

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.

BUMP

I have noticed that this is still carrying on.

Please keep personal life seperate from the PP forums!

Again, if you do have any questions please feel free to PM one of the moderating team.

Cheers.

Bump!

Please remember to stick to PMs when having personal conversations that are irrelevant to the threads on PP.

And bump again!

Especially this one;

Don't post problems that involve members on this site


This means disagreements, but also relationships. It can be very distressing for people to read all the details of their relationship, including break-ups, on a public forum. Even if the names are not published, the identity is always guessed at, and usually found out by members.
Shine your light and let the whole world see.

Could all users be reminded that we do not allow problems posted about other site members. Whether or not you think you're being discreet, these tend to become obvious fairly quickly. Cheers 8)

BUMP! It becomes apparent very quickly when you're posting about other site members. Please keep situations relating to other members away from the forums. Thanks.

BUMP. Please keep issues/topics about other PPers away from the public forum. They are better dealt with privately between yourselves.
Live life to the full
