Forum Rules
Welcome to the Redframe Photography Forum. This is the place to share ideas, comment about the latest upgrades, discuss the current contest, share creative techniques, discuss equipment, or just chat about the whatever!

There is no charge for joining this Forum! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. By registering, you indicate that you agree to the terms and conditions of these rules. If you do not agree with these rules, you may cancel the registration process or return to the forums, click the "contact us" button at the bottom of the page and ask that we remove your membership.

This is a community of photographers, artists and those interested in graphics and art. Both experienced and inexperienced members will make up this community. Your behavior here, and ours, can be summed up in 4 words: “Mi casa, su casa” (my house is your house). The Redframe Photography Forum is a place where it's okay to be yourself as long as you always act with respect for your fellow members as well as the administrative staff. Our goal will be to treat our members as we would wish to be treated. In return, we ask that you act here in a professional and pleasant demeanor. You are not expected to leave your personality at the door. There are going to be topics and discussions that will have heated debates. Please think before you post and re-read what you type before you post it. Keep your comments limited to the debate at hand and do not make this a personal issue between you and another member.

There is tremendous diversity in age, race, gender, language, location (worldwide) and more here and there will be a lot of varying opinions on different subjects. We're all human beings and we're all drawn to this site because we have a common bond. We will willingly listen to your suggestions and complaints, and try to incorporate your ideas into the Board.

If you come across any violations to these guidelines or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know through the Admin Contact Form. We'll be happy to address your concerns. We encourage everyone to participate in and enjoy the Community while at the same time adhering to these Guidelines:

Be Welcoming!
When newcomers arrive, welcome them to our growing community. Many of our community's senior members are a wealth of knowledge and have much to share. Help new members learn how to find information and resources, save time, and how to get involved in the Community.

Be Courteous!
Don't attack others. Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack.

Be Cautious!
Think before you post or speak: Do you really want to put your address or telephone number on a public discussion forum? We encourage you to keep personal information personal.

In the same vein, do not ask for personal information from others. Discussion forum posts that request members to submit personal information to another party will be removed. Information that should be considered personal includes, but is not limited to, your home phone number, name, and age. If you must give this out for any reason, please do so privately.

Be Appropriate!
There may be places where explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics or behavior is appropriate however these forums are not one of them. Discussion forum posts that contain explicit, obscene or vulgar language will be removed. Similarly, discussion forum posts that solicit or offer explicit or X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or similar content files will be deleted without notice!

Be Ethical!
Resources, articles and discussions are based on basic, appropriate professional ethical behavior. Unethical behavior: spamming, warez, license sharing, and other illegal activities are completely inappropriate and will result in the loss of membership at the Redframe Photography Forum.

No Cross-Posting
Do not post the same discussion more than once on a discussion forum or on many forums. Duplicate discussions are frustrating and counterproductive for other members, especially for those whose time and energy is limited. Duplicate discussions will be deleted.

No Advertising – Spam
Do not place advertisements through the Discussion Forums. This will be considered SPAM and could result in the loss of your Community Membership. Affiliate links are not allowed within the forums. If you wish to promote a particular program then promote the program not your own affiliate tie with it. You may link to your web site in your signature, but redirecting members for the purpose of commercial ventures, classified advertising or SPAM is forbidden.

Be Reasonable when Posting Images
We welcome examples of your work and gladly allow you to post some images, but link to your site instead of posting a large amount of images. We are limited to a certain bandwidth per month.

No Abuse of PM
Private Messaging is provided to the members as a service intended to enhance the Community experience. The purpose of private messaging is to allow for discreet conversations to take place between members. This privilege is not to be abused! Solicitation, spamming, or harassment of any kind is strictly forbidden. Any member receiving an inappropriate private message should forward that message to an Administrator or Moderator right away. Although private messages are normally only accessible by those who send and receive them, they are part of the database and as such, property of The Redframe Photography Forum. An Administrator, if so inclined, could locate the Private Messages in the database and read them. They are private, but not necessarily secret. In addition, Private Messages are not intended to deprive the Community of valuable information or experiences which could benefit the entire group. Please do not use private messages if the content of the message can be helpful to others.

No Copyrighted Material
Information copyrighted or owned by any individual or entity other than the member should not be posted on the discussion forums or libraries without the consent of the owner. If such an event occurs, the individual posting the information shall be held solely responsible. The Redframe Photography Forum shall not be held responsible for member-posted information that may violate copyright law.

Administrative Discretion
The forum Administrator and Moderators reserves the right to remove a post which does not relate to the topic being discussed in the forum. In addition, we reserve the right to organize discussion forums in order to best serve the majority of our members. For example, narrow-interest or minimal activity topics may, at administrative discretion, be relocated to a more appropriate discussion forum, or deleted entirely. We also reserve the right to prohibit or delete discussions that are thought to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members, the rights of administration, or others. That said, we cannot ensure prompt removal of offending discussion forum posts. We also reserve the right to remove your membership from you should you violate these Guidelines.

Considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for the Administrator or Moderators to review all messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember we do not actively monitor the contents of all posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted by members. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and we are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the Redframe Photography Forum or any entity associated with the Redframe Photography Forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. The Administrator or Moderators have the ability to remove objectionable messages and will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if it is determined that removal is necessary. This is a manual process however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately, in fact, we may not edit or delete posts that break our rules at all. We have many time constraints on us and cannot guarantee that we will be able to edit or delete posts that break the rules/user agreement.

If you do not agree with this then do not view or register for the Redframe Photography Forum. Although Administration is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at the Redframe Photography Forum reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Redframe Photography Forum Administration, and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

We also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you. We will cooperate fully with any legal authority requesting information about our members or content of these forums.

Use of the site is at the discretion of the Administration of the Redframe Photography Forum and any use may be terminated by Administration at any time.

The user agrees as a condition of registering at the Redframe Photography Forum to be truthful in regard to all information given during the registration process, to use the site as per the instructions, not to disclose his/her password to others for use, and that the site has a license (permission) for use of anything the user submits or posts to the site.
