Prestwood Community Rules & Disclaimers
Posted 14 years ago on 6/11/2008 and updated 6/21/2010
Take Away:

The Prestwood Online Community rules and disclaimers. Essentially, our policies all center around be-friendly, don't flame, encourage more discussion, and limit advertising to approved areas.


Advertise Your Company or Website - Free back-links!

We encourage you to promote your website, group, products, and/or services. We believe cross-promotion of websites is good advertising for both of us. If it's acceptable, we would also like you to add us as a resource link on your website.
We provide the following two features for promoting your group, company, or website:

  • Member Home Page - Your member home page is the other acceptable location to promote yourself, your company, or your website. All of your contributions are linked to your home page. Contributing to both our message boards and to the knowledge base is a great way to build up a rich home page especially if you contribute to all of our knowledge base post types. See Participation and Contributions below for more info.
    Profile Account - Start Here! 
  • Resource Links Pages - The appropriate place to promote is in the Resource Links page for each appropriate group. The posted resource link shows up on that group's resource links page and in our knowledge base under the appropriate topic. In addition, we will feature your link in that group's weekly content and push it out to our eMag subscribers. We will automatically recycle your resource link in that group's weekly content no more than every six months and in our eMag no more than once a year.
    Note: Feel free to post your resource link in all the appropriate groups. For example, if you sell a tool that's useful for VB.Net, C#, and Delphi for .Net developers, feel free to post it to all three of those groups.
    Knowledge Base - Add you links to the appropriate topic!

Rules and Disclaimers

Community Goal
Our community is dedicated to positive enthusiasts. Although we understand it's important to have visibility into known defects and work-arounds, we promise to always treat each product we support with respect and with the goal of promoting it's usage. 

Email Verification Procedure
After you create your account, we will send you an email so you can verify your email with us. Once verified you will have increased rights on our family of websites. If you do not verify your email, we will send you a reminder email at increasingly longer time periods (3 days, 8 days, 20 days, 30 days, etc).

Moderated Community
This is a heavily-moderated online community with positive goals. It is our intention to work with the makers of the products we support in an effort to promote their usage. It is our believe that a negative or hostile approach to technology and online communities is not in the interest of the greater good. This is particularly prevalent with message boards and newsgroups where flaming and bad egos tend to stomp on others. We will do our best to strive for a balance between addressing the negative aspects of each product with the presentation of information.

Real-Time Content
Considering the real-time nature of our programmer community, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the content of posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Prestwood nor any entity associated with Prestwood. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Appropriate Content
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use our online community to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violate law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by Prestwood. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages.

Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate in the Prestwood Programmer Community.

Linking to Other Websites
In your blog, MB posts, and KB articles, you can link to resources on other websites as you see fit, but our preference is that you post the material to the appropriate group here on our website. That's the only way we can be sure the resource will stay current.

Right to Edit and Delete Content
We reserve the right to edit any contribution for any reason including editing, moving, and deleting content. Although we do not and cannot preview the posted material and we are not responsible for the content posted, we at Prestwood reserve the right to delete and/or edit any message and/or community content for any reason whatsoever. We also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you or usage of the website (especially hacking).

Right to Ban Policy
Prestwood reserves the right to ban any user for any reason.
