(Note from Lady Valkyrie: We pride ourselves on a wonderful, harmonious PR where there is little in the way of drama and everyone is valued and respected. Please read and follow the following guidelines written by ~~Que~~ and you will be very welcome here.)

I wanted to make a post for our group that might help everyone get along better. We have gotten a lot of new members lately and I know there can be a point of contention for any new members coming into a well-established group. I know a lot of different forums out there have different "cultures" or communication styles. You know when your mom started using Facebook, and all of the frustrating things you witnessed during her painful transition in learning the ropes? I'd like to help the newbies avoid that. I've been around Justmommies for several years now and feel like I have some insight to share. Please feel free to contribute if you feel I am off base or have missed something.

Justmommies doesn't really have a lot of posting instructions or info in the introduction forums, so I thought I'd help put together something here. This is not to call anyone out, but the main point is to help everyone get along better.


-Introduce yourself before posting. This is a very personal forum where we discuss a lot of personal topics. We'd love to know who you are before discussing personal topics.

-Search the forum before posting. Sometimes you might get discouraged because no one is answering your questions. This may be because they've already been asked repeatedly. Search the forum and you just might get the help you're looking for without having to start a new thread. It's good to read the forum a bit anyhow before participating. This might help you get to know the lay of the land.

-Don't post just to post. Don't waste anyone's time.

-Be honest. We value authenticity.

-If you disagree with a post, disagree with the topic and not the person. Try to avoid personal attacks and name calling, even if it's implication. Also remember that you do not need to respond to every single post. If you do not like a post or have nothing constructive to contribute, just ignore it and move on. If it truly personally irks you, don't be afraid to PM someone instead of causing conflict or as we like to call it in our DDC, "stirring the pot."

-Do not hijack threads. When someone posts a problem, try not to take over the thread to make it about you.

-Avoid personal one-on-one conversation in someone else's threads. If you notice that you are picking up a conversation, it might be time to PM or get a chat room.

-Be sensitive to others. This one is self explanatory.

-Ignore trolls or attention seekers. Just ignore them and they will go away. Also, don't be afraid to report suspected trolls to the hosts. They love to hear your feedback.

-Problems with another poster. Any time you have a problem with a poster, please move to a PM format and don't be afraid to bring in a host or moderator to mediate the situation.

-Be kind and welcoming to newbies.

-Be considerate of what you post. Your posts can be viewed in a basic google search.

This is just a basic outline of a few faux pas that are obstructed regularly. Feel free to add feedback. I really just wanted to help others out so that we can all get along better. By ~~Que~~

(Any feedback can be added by bumping up Que's original post: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...etiquette.html)

Member Information

Since we made the original Whooo's Your Mama thread, many ladies have left and joined, so now we're on the verge of becoming a PR, I thought we would make a new one that better represents the group as it is now.

Please enter your details, and I will edit the member list in post 1 as we go. If you're still pregnant, come back and edit the last couple of points after the big event.
