Announcement Modifications to Forum Rules
Aug 01, 2014 - 11:51 AM - by Jeff Westover
We have made mention of many upcoming changes to MMC, including the development of new community software that will upgrade the experience. We're still months away from instituting those big changes.

But in advance of those new features we are able now to introduce some small changes to our forum rules and procedures that need to be in place before the big development to come.

Effective immediately:

1. Links to outside websites can now be made in any forum area. Server security will still limit some posting of links but as a general guideline one link per post shouldn't give anyone any problems.

2. Spam rules still apply. We will not tolerate those who register for the site to merely post a link on the forums, without so much as saying hello or adding to the conversation.

3. Please keep links in appropriate forum topic areas.

4. Please link only to family friendly venues.

Also note that we will also be modifying our Platinum Membership offerings, to be detailed in another post.
