Forum Rules & Etiquette
Welcome to the BESS Exchange Forum!

We wish our forum to be enjoyable and welcoming to all, even for those who may have formed
an unfavorable opinion of forums in general. That’s why we call it an “exchange”; a place where beginners
and experts alike share ideas, questions, methods and experiences in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Rule 1 – Every forum expects members to interact with dignity and respect, but here we mean it. If you
disagree with another member, no matter how vehemently, take a deep breath and then choose from
one of these options:

A. - Disregard the post and move on.
B. - Post an alternative method, idea or experience without prejudice.
C. - Ask for clarification but only if clarification is really needed. Clarification is just that, additional
illumination, not an attack vehicle.
D. - If the poster has specifically asked input, please respond in a constructive and helpful manner.
E - If you feel a post is offensive, unfair or harmful, please contact the moderator, not the author
of the post. The moderator will gladly address your concerns.

Rule 2 - If you feel your writing or person has been impugned in violation of Rule 1, please contact
the moderator directly without hesitation. We are here to help. Our goal is a happy forum.

Rule 3 - The Exchange Moderator is the sole and final arbiter of all matters pertaining to the Exchange
pages. Members shall not attempt to influence moderator decisions nor comment on
moderator rulings on the Exchange pages. If you have concerns regarding a pending matter
or ruling, please address your concerns directly with the moderator.

Rule 4 - Commercialization. We're going to allow it here in a thread created specifically for that purpose.
We will allow, with prior moderator approval, particularly useful and innovative products
to be showcased for a period of time. Priority will be given to individuals, new and small
businesses. Comment on and discussion about these products will be limited to the showcase thread.

Rule 5 - Links to sites outside the exchange - TBD

Rule 6 - Of course, no religion, politics, sports, or profanity

Rule 7 - Discussions are not limited to the products and services manufactured or represented by the
sponsors of the BESS Exchange. Other products, even competitive products or methodologies,
are welcome topics of conversation for non-commercial purposes.

Rule 8- We're not interested in your academic pedigree or years of experience. Please do not
include this information in your post unless it is specifically relevant and required. You’re erudite
words will speak to your grasp of the subject matter.

Rule 9 - Our staff is always more than happy assist in any way possible. Please feel free to contact us if
you have any questions, comments or concerns.
