Please, note that from now on we will be strictly enforcing the new clauses, removing any violating content and potentially suspending accounts that breach the rules. All new regulations are designed to keep the team and the community focused, efficient and peaceful. While iPROPRIETOR.net technically looks like a "social" network, it is primarily a professional business community.
The new clauses read:

The following rules help everyone on iPROPRIETOR.net have a safe and productive experience.

Engage with Others in a Constructive Way

No Hate Speech
iPROPRIETORis a place for discussion around the iPROPRIETOR platform and Online Social Community development in general - iPROPRIETOR does not tolerate content that attacks or disparages an individual or group based on race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, political group, sexual orientation or another similar characteristic. Any generalizations about these topics should be phrased as neutrally as possible.
No Harassment and Bullying
Abusive behaviour directed towards private individuals and organisations is not allowed. That includes iPROPRIETOR employees and the company in general. Repeated and unwanted contact constitutes a form of harassment. There is no minimum service guarantee with iPROPRIETOR.net - it is a free space where announcements can be made, guidance given and questions raised. If your questions are not being answer quickly enough, you will need to consider direct support, which is available with paid iPROPRIETOR Pro and Cloud subscriptions.
Discussion around the use of iPROPRIETOR applications is welcomed, but if you are dissatisfied with a product or outcome, please avoid denigrating the iPROPRIETOR team in your remarks, we are all looking for constructive outcomes, and personal attacks will not be tolerated.
Be Positive and Purposeful in Your Communications
People are using this platform to ask and answer questions about the development of their iPROPRIETOR websites. If you have a meaningful question requiring an answer, please ask! If you feel like you can answer a question in a way that has value, please answer! But in your questions and answers please avoid the use of sarcasm or misleading information, bear in mind that many people using this platform have English as a 2nd language - so sarcasm could be misconstrued and misleading information can cause significant umbrage to others.
In effect, this means that we only welcome respectful, supportive, on-topic communication. While everyone is allowed to have an opinion and exercise their freedom of speech, we reserve the right to curate content published on this site to keep it in-line with the purpose of this community. iPROPRIETOR.net members may be from various countries; may have different political, religious or social opinions; may be facing different personal experiences and may have a variety of individual circumstances. We would like to keep all the discourse strictly relevant to the iPROPRIETOR.net cause. Therefore, we will be actively removing any postings that may be inflammatory, misguiding, divisive, off-topic or inconsiderate.
These rules also apply to product-related feedback. We provide iPROPRIETOR software and services in good faith and strive to support our clients in the best way we can. Customer feedback is welcome, both via public and private channels, but we do ask you to keep it constructive, supported by facts and expressed in a manner that does not discourage other community members. Unsatisfactory experience may be related to a number of factors, often including issues beyond our control. Assumptions and generalisations only help when they are intended to promote goodwill. In short, this is not a place for any antagonism of any kind, even if it is substantiated. Any complaints that can't be expressed in a constructive manner should be directed to our private support channels.
Ultimately, iPROPRIETOR.net is a place for helping and inspiring each other. Let's keep it that way.
At the time of registration, and for providing communications between the user account and their contacts, the user has to provide a display name (pen name), a username (nickname) and a working email address. The names will be accessible on the profile page of the account by any visitor of the page, even if other profile details are not displayed. The email address will only be used to send the user notifications about interactions, but won’t be visibly displayed. The listing of an account in the node's user directory or the global user directory is optional and can be controlled in the user settings, it is not necessary for communication.
This information is required for communication and is passed on to the nodes of the communication partners and is stored there. Users can enter additional personal information that may be transmitted to the communication partner's accounts.
At any point in time a logged in user can export their account data from the account settings. If the user wants to delete their account they can do so at https://iproprietor.net/removeme. The deletion of the account will be permanent. Deletion of the data will also be requested from the nodes of the communication partners.
