Before an individual can become a member of the Scrappin’ Peeps Message Board, he/she must complete a registration process. Prior to granting membership to the board, board administrators attempt to verify the legitimacy of each request. Verification includes but is not limited to determining that the member-candidate has an interest in the general hobby of paper-crafts.
Scrappin-Peeps administrators are not responsible for any member violations of the ProBoards Terms of Service and other policies. Administrators are bound to the same ProBoards policies as its members. Administrators and moderators will use various warning processes and guidelines provided by ProBoards when necessary. See the ProBoards Terms of Service for additional information.
Members to this Board will respect the privacy of every member. No member is to share any information, posts, threads, photos, layouts or links to any other boards, websites, social websites, single or mass emails, etc. Layouts, drawings or photos are understood to be the property of the artist/creator and are not to be shared with anyone outside of the Board without direct permission of the artist/creator. Any member found sharing information from the board or the Scrappin Peeps Galleries without permission will be banned from the Board. In short: “What happens here stays here.”
Member comments and suggestions for improving the Board, or concerns about the operations of the Board are both valuable and crucial for the long-term sustainability of the Board. Members are asked to present any ideas for changes to Board operations, policies, and/or enhancements such as forum additions or deletions, etc. to administrators prior to presenting the idea to the community at large. This does not include common Board activities such as challenges, swaps, tosses, etc. Posts that may be interpreted as requests for a change in board operations, policies, etc. may be removed if administrators have not first been consulted. Consulting administrators allows the administrators to determine if the request is possible within the ProBoards environment.
