Rules of Engagement
The UniverCity Community Association Online Forum is an online forum where current UniverCity Community residents may share ideas, engage in discussion, and give input on ideas that they feel are best for the UniverCity Community. We want to hear from everyone and have your active, frequent participation, thoughts, ideas and even respectfully delivered criticism. In that spirit, we ask that you contribute respectful and polite comments and content and agree to follow a few ground rules. We reserve the right to remove any content or ban a participant.
Identify yourself – You are encouraged to use your actual name, including when posting comments or participating in discussions. You may not represent yourself as another person, or imply any connection with any person or organization with which you are not in fact associated. Contributors will be required to create member account prior to posting.
Be thoughtful – You agree to consider your sources of information by fact-checking or exploring your sources of shared knowledge, referencing credible websites, authors, and organizations. Spreading misinformation without careful thought erodes trust and makes the community less informed and fearful.
Be courteous, respectful and appropriate – You agree that your comments, ideas and feedback will be constructive and will not sharply criticize or attack another participant or their ideas, avoiding the use of all capital, all bold or italic letters, objectionable avatars, or excessive links to external websites. Further, you agree to refrain from posting or uploading anything obscene, hateful, blasphemous or derogatory. You also agree to refrain from posting or uploading anything that is defamatory or libelous or invades another person’s privacy or proprietary rights. If you need to ask yourself whether something is appropriate, it’s probably not.
No spamming or intentional disruptions – You agree not to deliberately disrupt discussions with repetitive messages, meaningless messages or “spam.” Furthermore, you will not upload, post or submit anything that contains any viruses or cancel bots, Trojan horses, harmful code, or other computer software programs designed to interrupt another person’s participation in, or enjoyment of the UniverCity Community Association online forum.
No copyright infringement - You agree not to post copyrighted material or content without permission from the content owner.
No solicitation – You agree to refrain from sending any bulk unsolicited advertising, promotional information, commercial email or other solicitation (including, but not limited to junk mail, chain letters or pyramid schemes of any sort) to any person through the UniverCity Community Association online forum. Feel free to contact us so that we may recognize and support local businesses together!
Comply with the law – You will comply with all applicable laws when participating in this online forum and will not use the UniverCity Community Association online forum for illegal purposes
