community guidelines

The creative lab Community brings like-minded
creative people together. We're looking to
inspire, guide and support your creative endeavors.

In order to accomplish this, we're going to need your help in making this a safe and friendly community for all to enjoy. The guidelines below are simple rules that ought to help ensure this:

  • Disclosing other people's personal information is also forbidden

Messaging Members of the Community

We've allowed members of the creative lab Community to message each other. Messaging others should be strictly and exclusively for the purpose of professional networking. Here are some basic guidelines:

  • When messaging others, have a specific purpose in mind - don't just message for the sake of messaging
  • If the person you're messaging doesn't reply, don't message again - they might not be interested in what you're proposing
  • If somebody messages you, we encourage you to reply - even if you're not interested, just reply saying so
  • The same rules as commenting apply here - don't be rude, don't harass people and don't spam people

We want this to be a safe and friendly community, so if you're being bugged by somebody or want to report anything, please let us know.

We're serious about these rules and truly believe they'll help make this community a great place in which to work and play - so please... follow them strictly.
