Forum decorum
« on: March 24, 2008, 09:05:43 AM »
We welcome everyone to this forum, from newbies to tech warriors. No complicated rules here.

General Rules

Tone and culture of KBoards. KBoards is our home. To make it an overall enjoyable place to be, we have to set expectations about the behavior of everyone who enters our home.

The tone of conversation in our forum is important to us. If you are a new member, browse around the boards for a while to get a feel for our culture. Look at the flow of our conversations to get a sense for what we consider to be acceptable in posts and topics.

If you're new and immediately start posting with provoking or inciting comments, don't be surprised if you're banned. In the past, we've spent time trying to coach new members who get started on the wrong foot here. It rarely works, and we've now grown to the point where it's not possible for us to do that. So, seriously: figure this part out on your own if you wish to join this forum.

If the above guidelines irk you, and you're ready to get on your soapbox about free speech on the web... this is probably not the place for you.

If, on the other hand, you enjoy respectful and engaging dialogue, and have a sense of courtesy to others... welcome! Enjoy! 


Specific Rules

- No bad words please. (Don't test our filters.)

- No flaming, no insults, no name calling. Your post will be deleted.

- No belligerence. If, in the opinion of our moderators, you display aggressive, relentless, or belligerent behavior, you are subject to being banned. If you want to have a future here, be kind.

- No yelling. (Don't do ALL CAPS..!)**

- No excessive punctuation (e.g. strings of exclamation marks or question marks), to include use of special characters in subjects to make the topic stand out in the topic listing.  Apostrophes must be used appropriately at all times. ( :P)

- KBoards Content -- Sexually explicit pornographic images are not allowed. Explicit images of violence are not allowed. In addition, "adult content" is not allowed, which includes erotic images, erotic text, and links to erotic content. Please use your judgment, and respect that the moderator team and the board owner have final say. (FAQ)

- Sometimes newcomers ask questions that have been asked and answered before. That's okay. Help them out, and politely show them where the answer can be found. The forums are a big place and though we try to make information accessible, it takes a little while to get used to where everything is. If a newbie question really bothers you, just skip by that post and move on. Someone else will probably help.

- No trolling. This includes posts that seem designed to incite angry responses, or posts that seem designed to dissuade Kindle enthusiasts. This is a Kindle forum! If you prefer other readers, you are still welcome here; but don't try to turn this into an anti-Kindle forum.

--Sorry, no discussion of politics or religion. We've found that these discussions, about beliefs that are held deeply, tend to go off the rails very quickly, so our culture here is to not have those discussions.

- Members may not charge other members for friendship. This includes charging any member for signature space.

- Posts related to Kindle books. Authors, we do allow you to post about your Kindle book, but only in the Book Bazaar board. See detailed author rules below. Do not post links that use non-KBoards Amazon affiliate links. We will delete your posts, or update your Amazon links to the KBoards affiliate link.

- Use of affiliate tags. We reserve the right to add links, or update links, in your KBoards posts with links that contain KBoards affiliate codes. We may delete or modify posts that contain outside affiliate links. Posting of outside affiliate links is against forum rules and may result in banning.

- Links to your website. We don't allow posts that are designed to get people to go to other sites to make their Amazon book or Kindle purchases. You may have a discrete link to your site in your signature, subject to the signature guidelines below.

- Accessory Makers: Posts promoting your Kindle covers, lights, or other accessories are allowed through our promotions program - contact us for details via email. Posts that are not cleared through our promotions program may be locked and/or deleted. We reserve the right to remove or replace external sales and affiliate links. Overbearing, off-topic, or repeated posts about commercial products will be deleted. If you want regular presentation of your commercial product, email us at admin@kboards.com about our programs for advertising, giveaways, or other promotions.

- DRM (Digital Rights Management): We do not allow threads or posts that include instructions, or links to instructions, on ways to hack, crack, or otherwise get around DRM protections. The term 'DRM' refers to access control technologies used by publishers and copyright holders to limit usage of digital content. Kindle books, e-books in general, purchased music, and other published digital content typically contain DRM controls. It is acceptable to post about DRM in general, e.g. to discuss DRM-related issues and benefits.

- PID tools: Utilities that derive personal identifiers (PID) for your Kindle reader are considered by Amazon to be in violation of their terms of service. We do not allow posts that provide how-to instructions, source code, or links for obtaining these scripts.

- Chat: Follow the above rules when in the 'public' rooms in our chatroom. This includes the Lobby, the Book Klub room, and the Tech Support room. You can set up your own subroom for your own chat topics or for spirited discussion that may be offensive to others. Just clearly label those subrooms when you name them, so that members have fair warning before venturing in.

- Usage: Text and photos that you post in KBoards may be used by KBoards in other media settings; for example, in our Kindle blog or in guides or other publications that KBoards may assemble from time to time.

- Signatures: Generally, you may have text and/or graphics in your signature, including hyperlinked text and graphics. Excessive use of images in signatures is discouraged, and graphics may be removed or resized at the sole discretion of the moderators. Do not post embedded videos in signatures. Graphics or words that are offensive, distracting, or otherwise detract from the forum may be removed at the sole discretion of our moderator team.

A signature, in length and height, can be no larger than the area X'd off below. It is 89 default font characters wide, and 10 default font characters high. That's about 800 x 140 pixels. This is enough for 8 book covers (which, when made through our Link-Maker, are 125 pixels high, you can have more covers if they are smaller) plus two lines of plain text. Keep your signature to that size or smaller; otherwise it may be changed or removed.

- Empty posts: Members who make repeated short-phrase posts may be viewed as posting simply to bump their post count or to make their forum signatures more prominent. Those posts may be deleted and repeat offendors may be banned, at the sole discretion of the moderator team.

- Web tracking bugs: Members who use web tracking images in their posts, signature, or avatars will be banned.

- Departure Announcements: If you choose to leave KBoards, we allow you to make a post announcing your departure from the community. We have heard from members who have made such announcements that they continue to receive thread and PM notifications even after announcing their departure, and have been asked how to prevent that. For members who announce their intention to leave KBoards, we will honor the request to separate from our community by disabling the member account. This will stop our automated board notifications from going out. It also disables other board features (PM notifications, and access to chat room, author pages, Yellow Pages, signature tools, book pages, KB bookmarks, keeping track of last posts read, etc.) You will still be able to browse the boards as an unregistered guest. We hope this addresses your wishes to leave our community.

To help us in managing this, we will consolidate "I'm leaving KB" announcements into a single thread in the Forum Comments area. If you change your mind in the future, just contact us through the email in the site footer, with a request for us to re-enable your account.

Of course, members who wish to stop posting here may simply do so at any time. And people who are taking short breaks for one reason or another may post about that; that's different. Our site has no rules that prevent people from taking a break from the boards when they wish... and many do so and then return later. Rather, the above is to address the people who choose to announce their departure from the community.

- Authors: We are fortunate to have quite a few authors who have joined KBoards. Here are some guidelines about getting the word out about your books:
     - You may post one thread about your book, in the Book Bazaar board. You can use that thread to introduce your book, include a brief review, etc.
     - Do not post about your book in other boards, or in the Book Bazaar's Free Books or Bargains Books threads.
     - We have a Link Maker (see the top of the screen). Authors are strongly encouraged to use the link maker to include a link with a cover of their book, which takes interested folks directly to Amazon where people can read reviews, sample the book and buy it if they want.  We also have an author signature tool at http://www.kboards.com/authorsig
     - Do not "bump" your thread with the word "bump" or through similar tactics. You are welcome to keep your thread "lively" by posting information about your book (reviews, author interviews, etc.) - but do not do so more than once per week. Of course, you can always reply to comments from others in the thread. After you've replied, you may not bump the thread for 7 days. The simple rule to remember for your book thread: no back-to-back posts from you that are closer than 7 days apart.
     - Do not engage in "quid pro quo" bumps in which you bump threads of other authors in return for them bumping yours.
     - No setting up of multiple accounts ("sock puppets"). We have ways of identifying these, even when attempts are made to disguise those accounts through IP-cloaking tools. (Note: if you're using an IP-cloaker or IP-blocker, you're probably high on our watch list.)
     - Do not send unsolicited private messages (PMs) or emails to any members to promote your books or other wares.
     - Do not re-post Amazon reviews here. If you do have reviews of your book at other sites, you may include a link (don't repost the whole review) to that site.
     - You may list your book, and a small graphic if desired, in your forum signature.
     - We do not allow explicit cover images or titles, and will remove posts or signatures containing those subject to our sole discretion. See note above about "family-friendly" content.
     - Some authors have had contests or promotions to publicize their book. If you are interested in doing that, please PM a moderator to make sure the promotion is in line with forum guidelines.
     - We have two databases which may be found under the Authors menu at the top of the forum: KB Authors and KB Books.
             You can add your books to the KB Books database by using the instructions found here:
http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,40577.0.html
             You can add yourself to KB Authors by using the instructions found here:  https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,155442.0.html
     - For more author-related tips and guidelines related to these boards, see this post:  http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,41454.0.html

Vendor-Client Interaction

1) Vendors may maintain a single thread about their service. The vendor may use this thread to advertise their service and answer questions from potential clients. Clients may use this thread to report on their experience with the service. These reports may comprise feedback to the vendor or recommendations to other authors. This feedback may be positive or negative. Vendors may respond to both types of feedback within the thread.

2) Since vendors may have no more than one thread, all interaction relating to a service should take place in the same thread; a vendor may not reject certain kinds of posts -- negative feedback, for instance -- so long as posts follow KBoards' rules.

3) As with other threads, all interaction on vendor threads must proceed according to our forum decorum. This means no name-calling, no fighting, and no trolling. While authors are encouraged to post accurately about their own experiences with a vendor, hearsay is not welcome and will be deleted if noticed or reported.

4) While vendors may defend themselves within reason, this is not the place to try to resolve or hash out conflicts with clients.

5) Neither vendors nor clients may use the PM system to attack one another.

6) KBoards is not an adjudicating body. We provide a space where both clients and vendors may lay out their sides of a situation, within the bounds of forum decorum. Our members can read those posts and come to their own conclusions about what happened and whether they want to use the service in question.


Thanks for sharing your questions, opinions, expertise, and passions. Have a good time and we'll see you out in the boards.

Is damn a cuss word? It gets through the filters. And it's really the only American cuss word I use. When it's more serious, I use different languages. And they would get through the filter anyway.

Yes, I agree that we can accept "damn". My rule of thumb is, to try to maintain the tone such that I would feel pretty comfortable with my 11-year old daughters going to any page on the forum. And I think "damn" passes that test.

Not that they ever hear that at home.  :)

Is it acceptable to post a link to an external site that prosletyzes the Kindle?

I have a blog called The Kindle Blog Review (http://thekindlereport.blogspot.com) in which I review blogs available for subscripton on Kindle. And of course I accept requests from people who want me to review their blogs.

Can I plug my blog here, perhaps in the Authors section, or are such things not allowed?

Omni, as Book Bazaar moderator, I'd say you can have one thread about your blog. . .there are a few others who do as well.  AND you may put a link to your blog in the signature section of your profile so it appears in each post.  But please follow the rules of the Bazaar and don't artificially bump it more than once a week.  (The top post of this thread has the forum guidelines, including a section for authors.) 

If you copy any links from your blog to KindleBoards for books at Amazon or anything, please make sure they are either generic or KindleBoards links.  In other words, if they're affiliate links for your own site, please convert them to KB affiliate links.

If you have any other questions, just ask. . . . .the guidelines above were developed with the purpose of allowing writer members exposure, and without making non-writer members annoyed with too much advertising!  That doesn't help anybody.

We've updated our Forum Decorum rules (in the original post of this thread). The two added sections (copied below for your convenience) are intended to address concerns about excessively large signatures, and "empty posts".

Thank you for reviewing these and for respecting our rules for Forum Decorum.

-Harvey


- Signatures: Generally, you may have text and/or graphics in your signature, including hyperlinked text and graphics. Excessive use of images in signatures is discouraged, and graphics may be removed or resized at the sole discretion of the moderators. Graphics must be "reasonably sized"; graphics with a height of over 125 pixels are discouraged and may be removed. Do not post embedded videos in signatures. Graphics or text links that are offensive, distracting, or otherwise detract from the forum may be removed at the sole discretion of our moderator team.

- Empty posts: Members who make repeated short-phrase posts may be viewed as posting simply to bump their post count or to make their forum signatures more prominent. Those posts may be deleted and repeat offendors may be banned, at the sole discretion of the moderator team.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for this one... so annoying when you click on a thread and see a one word post like "Nice" or something similar, and it's a thread that's a year old. Even worse when the post makes no sense in the context of the thread.

It's easy to spot these offenders too when you're browsing the unread topics list, because the last poster on 20-30 threads in a row will be the same person.

Thanks again Harvey and Mods for continuing to keep this the best and friendliest site in the world!

Hope this doesn't apply to me in the K3 review section.  I just thanked the people over there that wrote a review because they took the time to do it.  Not trying to run up my post count; I just think it would be discouraging to write a review and get little to no response.  :)

I love the signature rule!  I haven't noticed a problem here but I've stopped going to other boards when I was on dial-up because threads would take so long to load because of super large signatures.

It wasn't directed at you, it was posted more than 2 months ago! ;)

I love the signature rule!  I haven't noticed a problem here but I've stopped going to other boards when I was on dial-up because threads would take so long to load because of super large signatures.

Most forum software gives you the option to "turn off" signatures. Click this link: http://www.kboards.com/index.php?action=profile;u=10550;sa=theme and you can check or uncheck the 4th option down "Don't show users' signatures".

This link will only work for Cardinal, as it's member # specific. Other users who want to use the link can copy and paste it into their browser, then change the member # (10550) to whatever yours is. You can see your own member # by hovering your mouse over your username in a post and looking at the URL at the bottom of your browser, it will be the # at the end.

Or. . . . Just go to your profile via the link in the menu bar at the top of every page and click on "look and layout". . . .there's a box to check to turn of signatures. . . . . . .

I was trying to make it easy for Cardinal, but then I realized that if other people tried to click the link it was going to cause confusion. Guess I made it more difficult in my attempt to make it simple.

Please...I need some help, and wasn't sure where to ask.  I noticed a discussion here about signatures and thought I'd jump in.

I'm new here and I want to add to my signature a thumbnail-sized image with live link to my books in the Kindle store.  I've noticed other authors doing it, so I presume it's permitted. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

How do I accomplish this?  I'm very technically-challenged!

If this isn't the place to ask, would someone please direct me to the appropriate resource?  Thank you!

How do I accomplish this?  I'm very technically-challenged!


This thread is sticked at the top of the Writer's Caf, and has all the instructions:

Signature Book Cover links and Profile (avatar) pics - A Tutorial
   my e-readers: Kindle 2 Kindle 3 nook iPad Sony-950

Hi Harvey I am a new author and KB member and am worried that my posts in Intro are not according to the rules -- I have been welcoming authors but also letting them know I am a sci fi author and new to the Boards. I have not yet gotten onto the Book Bazaar to post as I am trying to learn how to build a page that will show more of the books to their advantage. Can we NOT cut and paste reviews for the first Bazaar post? What am I not supposed to have on my initial Bazaar thread. Please don't ban me if I have screwed up on Day One  :( I don't want to do this inappropriately !  Please advise?
very best
Victoria
