Forum FAQs, Etiquette & Rules

Recommended Posts


Being a member of this forum is a priviledge and not a right.

You may lose some forum priviledges or be banned from the forum for the following reasons:

Violation of privacy: You cannot post personal details about a user that contains their physical location or contact information without their permission. Such details include real name, address details, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.

Copying their pictures and posting them elsewhere could also be a copyright infringement.

Spamming: Accounts which are obviously created to spam the boards will be banned instantly and the offending posts will be deleted.

Accounts that were not created to spam the board but do spam will be banned at the administration and moderators discretion.

Disruption: Posting for the purpose of creating disruption on these boards will not be tolerated (e.g., "baiting" or "trolling"). This includes deliberately violating board guidelines and courtesies or otherwise posting in a manner that is deemed by BDW management to be disruptive or harassing. Please note that creating a new member name for the purpose of disruption places your primary BDW account in jeopardy, as well.

Solicitations NOT Allowed: Solicitations by vendors AND brides are not allowed. It is so innapropriate to pm/email a member about your services or a vendor that you are using unsolicited.

There is no warning on this matter. if you solicit, you are banned.

These are just a few reasons but forum moderators can ban at their discretion.

Also, for forum etiquette, this video is funny but a good guideline for what good forum etiquette is: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...ting-you-3673/

It is also important for Members to know other rules and PSA's to avoid getting banned. A good place to start reading is: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-banned-32834/

Also, be sure to read the stickied threads in this forum (especially the PSA about Points, Sharing Photographer): Forum News & Updates

Thank you for the warm welcome. Before I post in the newbie section I read through your rules and etiquette to make sure it is ok for me to be on your forum. I have been married for 9 years so I am not planning a wedding, however, I do destination wedding photography all over the world and thought I could lend some advice to brides (and grooms) who may have questions about photography (questions to ask their photographer overseas, the benefits of a local photographer and the benefits of bringing a photographer, costs, etc). Which leads to my question...is it ok for me to be on this forum? I appreciate very much the service you provide and want to follow any rules you have.
