The following is a list of basic guidelines about what is and is not allowed while posting on our site. These rules are in addition to what is listed in our Terms Of Service (http://www.verticalscope.com/aboutus/tos.php?site=artistforum.com), and Advertising Rules (https://www.artistforum.com/getting-started-artistforum-com/artistforum-com-advertising-rules-31441/). Please read through all of these sections before using our site and contact us (https://www.artistforum.com/sendmessage.php) if you have questions.


1. You may only use one account on this forum. No exceptions. If you have issues with your account you can post for help (https://www.artistforum.com/artistforum-com-help-desk/) or contact us (https://www.artistforum.com/sendmessage.php).

2. Users shall treat each other with respect (https://www.artistforum.com/getting-started-artistforum-com/respect-others-community-29442/) at all times on ArtistForum.com. Ideas and opinions may be challenged, but name calling, personal attacks, or other inappropriate behavior will not be allowed. Harassment will not be tolerated. This includes private messages, Facebook and/or social media and user emails.


2a. Users shall not question or debate a moderator decision publicly on the message board. In the event of a disagreement or questioning of a moderator's decision or action users should contact the moderator(s) or admin(s) via PM.


3. Discriminatory remarks of any sort will not be tolerated. This includes degrading and/or offensive remarks about an individual or a group of individuals based on their race, color, ethnicity, sex, sexuality, age, nationality, religious affiliation, or indeed any other basis.

4. Do not disclose private information about members without their consent (e.g. names, contact details, pictures, details about personal life, etc. - this includes private messages, Facebook, email and social media in part.)

5. Do not post messages on behalf of banned members. They are banned for a reason. Doing so will result in a ban for the poster who is conveying the message, and an increase in the ban length for the poster who is sending the message.

6. Member signatures shall be appropriate, both in content and in size. No excessively obscene or rude language/content is allowed, nor may you use it to harm, harass or insult fellow members or to spread messages which are generally forbidden. If necessary, we reserve the right to delete or edit members' signatures at any time.

7. As stated in our Advertising Rules (https://www.artistforum.com/getting-started-artistforum-com/artistforum-com-advertising-rules-31441/), you may not post advertisements on our site unless you're a local artist displaying your business info. Members who try to sell products and/or services to our members will have their accounts revoked (this includes private messages).

8. No adult rated material, links to adult rated material, or any form of nudity may be posted on this site. In addition to nudity, all forms of sexual content (images, jokes, etc...) are prohibited from being posted on the site. This includes images of scantily clad men or women. Please help us keep this site family friendly. We do allow (within reason) tastefully done drawings within our Life Drawing (https://www.artistforum.com/life-drawing/) forum that may not be appropriate for all age groups. Viewer discretion is advised.

9. Profanity shall be kept to a minimum, abuse of this rule will result in an infraction up to and including a permanent ban.

10. You may only post material and content that you own. Posting copyrighted material, trademarks, and other violations of the DMCA is prohibited.




Any violation of these rules will result in an infraction up to and including a permanent ban. Please help us keep this site user friendly and report (https://www.artistforum.com/getting-started-artistforum-com/reporting-post-21410/) any instances of rule violations.

These rules may be altered at anytime without notice so please check this page often. Thanks. :smile:
