SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Play nice or don't play at all.

Due to certain difficulties inherent in written communication, feelings can be hurt, and whole threads can go very suddenly from innocent writing posts to all-out flame wars.  It is up to the administrators and moderators of this board to keep the place comfortable for everyone.  We can’t see one another’s faces, read body language, or gauge tone of voice on a message board as we can in real life.  Just because we CAN say something, doesn’t mean we SHOULD say something.  That doesn't mean that we ignore controversial topics, but when a discussion starts to get inflammatory or overtly political, that discussion needs to be taken elsewhere.  Remember that this is a board primarily about writing.

If you come across a post that you find offensive, do not handle it yourself.  Take it to a moderator.  An easy way to do that is to hit the "Report to Moderator" button you'll see at the bottom of each post.  We will address your concerns as quickly as possible.

The Blueboard was designed to be fun, informative, and most importantly, a friendly social gathering place and resource for people who are--because of what we do--widely separated from other writers.  Please do your part play nicely, professionally and respectfully.
