Thread: Forum Rules

    Post Forum Rules

    The Joint is a forum for individuals interested in the art of sculpting, molding, and casting their own original ball-jointed dolls. Our objective is to create a supportive environment where members may receive assistance, seek critique, share photos of works in progress, and discuss related issues. Our emphasis is on creating a community of artists who support one another and work together toward improving the quality of their work. We fully expect all creations to be original, not recast or "heavily inspired" by existing sculpts.

    Rules:

    DO!
    • DO conduct yourself with integrity, professionalism and kindness
    • DO participate as a student, no matter how long you have been working at making dolls. To quote the elderly Michaelangelo, "Ancora Imparo! -I am still learning!" - We are all here to learn from each other in this supportive community.
    • DO make an effort to post in the correct subforums
    • DO aspire for originality
    • DO make an effort to give and receive critique tactfully and constructively.
    • DO mark any threads containing nudity with "NWS" ("not worksafe")
    • DO respect that content posted in confidential areas (be it PM or professional areas) is considered confidential and is not to be reposted elsewhere



    DON'T:
    • DON'T post abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, threatening, or pornographic material
    • DON'T hotlink or repost content to which you do not own the rights
    • DON'T "borrow" others' designs or ideas without permission
    • DON'T recast or in other ways copy the work of other artists or companies.
    • DON'T give unsolicited critique
    • DON'T be disrespectful to fellow members or administrators
    • DON'T use this forum as a marketplace.


    The rules are very simple, and if you have any questions, please PM armeleia.

    As a clarification to the point about 'not using this forum as a marketplace':

    The forum owner has decreed that they do not want any discussion of sales on the forum at all. You are welcome to have a website where you may conduct sales, but you cannot advertise those sales on this forum. You can link to the website, but not specifically mention any sales information. If someone asks you or PMs you about it, you can direct them to your website sales. This forums purpose is to allow artists to collaborate, learn, and hone their skills, share amongst their peers their triumphs and tribulations without the pressure of sales and marketing.
    If you are experiencing problems using the forum, please drop me a PM. There may be a delay in responding, but I will do my best to fix your problem.
