Code Of conduct

Love Me Twice Forum / Classifieds Terms of Service and Conduct

Here at Love Me Twice, our mission is to create a friendly, supportive place where brides, sellers and suppliers can ask questions, share resources, and make friends during their wedding planning process and beyond.

 

We value detailed discussion and encourage support between our community members who come from many backgrounds and have many different viewpoints and wedding planning experience. It is important to the Love Me Twice community that dialogue remains respectful and productive. 

The Love Me Twice Forum / Classifieds is a community for our members to connect. Whilst we do moderate, the forum is a place for members to have discussions. We will from time to time join in to elaborate on questions and suggestions posed by members to facilitate a useful and productive experience. From time to time, we will be obliged to make moderation decisions to ensure a safe experience for our users that abides by our Terms of Use and Code of Conduct. . Comments that clearly violate the terms of this commenting policy may be edited or removed by the moderation team as necessary.

Commenting Guidelines for All Members

i. We don’t allow posts that are intended to be rude, sarcastic, insulting, berating, argumentative, condescending, or personally attacking, or that otherwise harass users of the Love Me Twice site. Please do not post threads or comments for the sole purpose of criticising, mocking, or otherwise disparaging others’ wedding planning choices. Love Me Twice is a diverse community with members that span across Australia and overseas.. No single culture is better than any other, and we value every member’s perspective. We reserve the right to remove such posts as necessary.

ii. While individuals sometimes disagree, we expect such disagreements to be handled in a mature manner. Please refrain from leaving comments that exhibit intolerance for individuals or groups of people including excessive rudeness, defamatory remarks, racist remarks, threats, or profanity directed at other members.

iii. While Love Me Twice is an adult site and we do allow the use of profanity in an expressionistic way, please refrain from swearing at other members or using unnecessary profanity in thread titles, as many of our members use the site in a professional setting.

iv. Please refrain from name calling. Whether it’s directed toward another community member with whom you’re having a disagreement, or toward someone you suspect is only here to cause trouble (a.k.a. a “troll”), it’s never acceptable to call another member names on Love Me Twice.

v. Please refrain from baiting. Baiting is the act of encouraging responses or replies in order to cause dissent or discord; to instigate participation in a negative way. Anytime you call attention to drama you’re amplifying it and actively participating in it, which is a violation of these policies. This includes “last wording” or refusing to let an argument go. 

vi. Anyone “trolling” or posting solely to create drama or conflict for Love Me Twice, our members, hostesses, bloggers, or our volunteer moderators will be immediately banned.

vii. Users are only allowed one account. If you feel the need to post something very personal or very private, you may create a secondary account for that purpose; but we ask that you stop using that account after your question is answered. Additional accounts opened for the sake of starting drama, being rude anonymously, or responding to yourself will be closed immediately. The user will be warned and, depending on the nature of what happened, risks losing their main account. 

viii. We do not allow members to self promote on the boards. This includes but is not limited to the following: links to your personal blog or website (outside of the monthly “Share Your Blogs” thread), contests that you, your friends, or your family are a part of, your or your friends’ or family members’ Etsy shops or other business ventures, your classified ads or other sale items, invite codes for sale sites, and other links that may afford you, your friends, or your family members tangible gain. This also includes links to websites for the purpose of fundraising for charities, political causes, or any other projects or causes, as well as links to online petitions. We also request that members not use the site to conduct market research, school research, or other information gathering for personal gain. 

ix. Please use photos with discretion. This means you should avoid using photos of individuals who are not aware that you are posting their image. Stock photos, advertisements, and inspiration photos are acceptable. It is often helpful to post a link for attribution. If you are unsure whether it is okay to use a certain photo, please ask the photographer or publisher prior to using it.

x. Please avoid threadjacking on Love Me Twice. Be courteous of threads that others have started, and focus on the original question or discussion. If you would like to start a discussion about a subject tangential to a thread, please start a new thread to pursue it. 

xi. Members come and go, but we discourage “flounce” posts (hasty goodbyes criticizing Love Me Twice or its users that are written to stir up drama). We reserve the right to delete or close these posts if they are particularly disruptive to the community.

xii. Please do not link to or reference other discussion boards with the intent to disparage their members, content, or staff.

xiii. Private messages (PMs) are private. Please do not repost PMs you receive on the boards and do not share PMs with other members without permission from the original sender.

xiv.  Hostesses and moderators volunteer their time/efforts and work hard to make Love Me Twice a fun, helpful, and supportive community. We welcome discussion about our policies, but opinions and statements about individual moderators, the moderation team as a whole, or moderation decisions should be made to admin@lovemetwice.com.au by private message. We expect moderators, as a group and as individuals, to be treated with the same respect as other board members and the same rules apply regarding personal attacks.

xv. Discussions involving the following will be closed and/or deleted: (1) illegal content; (2) content in facilitation of the creation, advertising, distribution, provision or receipt of illegal goods or services; (3) offensive content (including, without limitation, court ordered defamatory statements, threatening, hateful or pornographic content); (4) content that discloses another’s personal, confidential or proprietary information; (5) false or fraudulent content (including but not limited to false, fraudulent or misleading responses to user ads transmitted via our sites and services); (6) malicious content (including, without limitation, malware or spyware); (7) content that offers, promotes, advertises, or provides links to posting or auto-posting products or services, account creation or auto-creation products or services, flagging or auto-flagging products or services, bulk telephone numbers, or any other product or service that if utilized with respect to our sites and services would violate these TOU or our other legal rights; and (8) content that offers, promotes, advertises or provides links to unsolicited products or services.

There are times when a member remains unresponsive to our requests to abide by the commenting policy.  When this occurs it may become necessary for a member to be banned.  Members will be made aware that this is a possibility and given an opportunity to abide by the commenting policy.  If they are unable to do so, then the ban will go into effect.

Deletion Policy

Love Me Twice currently supports the ability for members to edit any post you create .  Personal information in your username is not grounds for deletion; we strongly recommend selecting a username that does not reveal your identity. It is strongly recommended that you not post personal information on the boards and use caution when sharing personal information by Private Message.  You are responsible for the personal information you share online.

Username Changes

All members are allowed a username change. It is strongly recommended you do not use any personally identifying information in your username (First name but perhaps not last name). 

Leaving Vendor Reviews

Our brides often wish to share their experiences with wedding vendors to help other brides.  You can do this by leaving a review on the original post or on the Vendor Member's profile.  However, if you wish to also post on the boards about your experience with a vendor, the following guidelines apply:

i.  Keep in mind that if you name your vendor, they will often find and read your post!  Therefore, you may want to limit your comments to those that you would say directly to your vendor.  Please understand that something said in anger is not eligible for comment deletion long after a situation has been resolved.

ii.  Give the vendor a chance to respond and/or take action – either on the post, by email, or by telephone.  If the situation is resolved to your satisfaction, please return to your thread and post an update for the benefit of everyone involved.

iii.  If you do name a vendor, please write posts in a factual manner and avoid inflammatory statements.  If you share what the vendor has done in an objective way, then our readers can make their own informed opinion.

iv.  When posting about vendors, be responsible and fair.  It’s never appropriate to talk about “destroying” a vendor.  Any such statements may result in your post being removed.

Vendor Participation on Love Me Twice.

Vendors are welcome to use the site for professional use,  – including links to their website, store, blog, or Facebook page.  We wish for brides to access to information on available suppliers that can assist in realising the completion of their choice in pre-loved/sample gowns to be ready for their wedding day. Posts that promote services outside of alterations / wedding outfit related services will be moderated and flagged for removal/editing. 

Vendors may:

i. Post to the Forum, and create a profile.

Vendors may not:

i.  Solicit customers on users’ classified listings.

ii.  PM users to promote their business or solicit clients, except to reply to forum /classified listings.
