Hello, fellow FutureProducers,

Just a quick announcement regarding an update to our forum guidelines and Terms of Use. These changes regard publicly victimizing or harassing network administrators and/or moderators within threads on the basis of their work as admin or mod on FP.

You do not have to like or agree with the comments made or actions taken by admins and mods, but these actions are taken with the objective of improving FutureProducer's content and ensuring that the site runs smoothly and efficiently. If you disagree with them in any way, you are invited to privately message the admin or mod directly.

Does this mean moderators and administrators can harass, ridicule or abuse members within public threads as they please? No, and if you feel you have been unjustly treated, send an email to info@FutureProducers.com.

With that said, members who publicly harass, victimize or otherwise personally attack an admin or moderator within a thread based on actions they've taken related to their work as admin or mod will be treated as follows:

1st offense: Relevant post(s) will be deleted and offender will be issued a warning
2nd offense: A one month ban will be administered
3rd offense: A permanent ban will be administered

If you have any questions about or issues with this announcement, please feel free to email us. Thanks.
