  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, harassing, or threatening behavior in comments.
  • Be mindful of your fellow Forum members.
  • Alert Forum moderators if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of the Anti-Harassment Policy, even if they seem inconsequential.

Unacceptable behavior on the Forum includes:

Listened to Wulf Moon on the Writers of the Future podcast tonight. I believe he said he hasn't had to terminate any memberships (that weren't bots Smile ).

I've certainly always found people here on the forum to be polite and respectful. I strive to come across the same way.

Thanks for listening, Scott! There’s some important info for writers in that last interview I did with John, and I’m glad you caught it. As for my comments on the Forum, since that interview we did have to remove one member. No questions on that, please.

It’s a good moment to thank all of you for the positive spirit promoted here. Negative speech that tears others down, as well as speaking ill of the WIotF Contest, its representatives, and its judges will not be tolerated. Every group has rules, and membership is conditional to following them. Everyone is reminded to review and abide by them when they join. They’re simply about being decent and kind to one another. We can all benefit from more of that in our world.

Keep shining.

@wulfmoon I agree with @scott_m_sands. So far all my experiences here have been positive. This is the first place I found honest but polite feedback along with helpful tips for improving.

Thanks for keeping up this valuable resource.
