Re-adding this rule: 16. Should you wish to post photographs of your children to the board, please do so only in non-public forums. (Public forums are those which can be seen by non-members and are labeld "*public*"; all the others are considered "non-public.")

Added this:

Quote:

No posting in support of alcoholism or illegal drug use. We reserve the right to remove posts or close discussions that we feel are questionable or promoting the use of illegal substances or abuse of alcohol.

Re: Posting Guidelines and Rules
 
The part in bold was added to guideline 23:

23. No posts harshly dissecting parenting moments of others seen or heard about either in real life or online since we desire to humbly cultivate a heart attitude of grace and not judgment towards other mamas. We all struggle at times as parents and have much to learn, and GCM's focus is to provide tools and information for each of us to parent more effectively. Posts voicing some frustration regarding choices made by others can be okay, but it needs to be within the overall context of seeking understanding or ideas for better responses in the future.

Re: Posting Guidelines and Rules
 
Some misspellings and grammatical errors in the guidelines were corrected tonight.

Also, for clarification purposes, the words "read or" were added to guideline 14:

Quote:

14. No letting anyone else, including your husband, read or post to the board with your account or use your account for any reason.
Part of guideline 19 was changed. It used to ask that we break certain links and gave an example of how to do that. Now it instead explains how to make a link inactive by using "noparse" tags.

Quote:

19. No posting live links to sites that violate our statement of parenting beliefs, such as sites that promote CIO or punitive parenting. An easy way to make a link inactive is by putting [noparse][/noparse] tags around the link.
Example: Doing this [noparse]http://www.gentlechristianmothers.com/community[/noparse] gives you this result http://www.gentlechristianmothers.com/community.

Please Note: Posting live links to all other sites (that are appropriate to be linked-to on GCM), including those that violate our statement of faith, is acceptable
(In the guidelines above, the parts in bold were added tonight.)

Number 26 was added today.

Quote:

26. Jesus equated lusting in our hearts with adultery and our Statement of Beliefs express the purpose of the board to uphold marriage as a sacred covenant. In that spirit, all posts and threads that go down the path of giving undue attention to men not our husbands (including, but not limited to celebrities) will be removed.

Re: Posting Guidelines and Rules
 
Thought I'd better note that on the 8th I split the Policy for Posting Copyrighted Materials to the Board and Rules for Signature Lines off into their own threads.

Because of that number eleven had a very slight update.

It did say this:
Quote:

11. No posting copyrighted materials to the board -- brief excerpts allowed, except do not post posts from other message boards, from mailing lists, from blogs, or from Facebook pages (see copyright policy below).
And now it says this:
Quote:

11. No posting copyrighted materials to the boardóbrief excerpts allowed, except do not post posts from other message boards, from mailing lists, from blogs, or from Facebook pages (see our copyright policy).
The changes made were that the word "below" was removed and now the words "copyright policy" link to the new sticky about copyright policy (copyright policy is the same -- the new sticky was made so that the copyright policy would have it's own thread, to shorten the OP and hopefully make it less overwhelming to read).

No copying/pasting any thread or part thereof from our board to anywhere off our board.

Now it's being changed to this:

Re: Posting Guidelines and Rules
 
For clarification's sake, the words "off our board" have been removed from guideline 12 because posts or threads should not be discussed anywhere, either off or on, the board with anyone who does not have access to the forum where they are posted:

Number 19 has been shortened to hopefully make it easier to read.

Eight has been updated from this:
Quote:

8. Start threads in the proper forum. For example, posts about breastfeeding go in the Breastfeeding forum, posts about food prep go in the Cookbook forum, posts about your toddler go in the Little Explorers forum, etc. Which forum is the best fit can be subjective, so do the best you can, and an admin or mod will move it if we feel that it might fit better in another forum.
to this:
Quote:

8. Do your best to start threads in the forum that best matches the topic of your thread: for example, post about food prep in The Cookbook forum. If a mod or admin feels a different forum would be a better fit, she will move your thread, leaving a redirection topic in the original forum so you can easily find it.
