Permalink   
 


Thank you to everyone who participated in the group conscience discussion about guidelines for the MIP Business Board.

From the points made in the discussion, we would like to propose adding a sticky to the MIP Business Board, with the guidelines shown below..

Please note that the guidelines under #2 below are identical to the Posting Guidelines linked in the Reply window of the forums, with the addition of moderator guidelines shown in bold in the Moderation section.

We request that anyone who wishes to, read the proposal below and then respond with a vote to adopt, not adopt, abstain, or request clarification on the guidelines for the MIP Business Board.   

Thank you,

[Proposed] MIP Business Board Guidelines

These guidelines are intended for the MIP Business Board.  Each fellowship (AA, Al-Anon, ACA, CODA, NA) operates independently on its discussion forum and online meetings.

  1. Please embrace the spiritual principles of each program and treat each other with courtesy and respect, recognizing that the moderators on each Board are the recognized authority there and respond respectfully to them.

  1. This forum is intended to provide an atmosphere of open communication, where each member can share his or her own insights and opinions. To help achieve this goal, we ask that you:

  • Do not post libelous or illegal material.
  • Do not post harassing or discriminatory comments based on race, ethnic origin, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • Do not solicit or advertise.

If you have questions or comments about this forum (such as technical difficulties or performance issues), please contact your forum administrator for the appropriate channel for your inquiry.

Moderation

  • Any post that violates the above conditions, or departs from the intended purpose of this forum may be removed without notice by the administration.

  • We reserve the right to edit any post for reasons including, but not limited to: language, length, or content not appropriate to the topic of this forum.

  • Older threads or messages may be removed from time to time, to maintain categories or threads of manageable length.

  • Any member who breaches these Guidelines through hostile, abusive or other inappropriate behavior may find their account privileges revoked.

  • Moderators may take these actions when Guidelines have been breached:

1. Editing or deletion of the post 

2. Private warning to the member with reason based on the guidelines

3. If the issue is repeated by the member:  Temporary suspension for a period of time decided by moderators, followed by reinstatement

4. If there is deliberate repetition of the issue, temporary suspension and group conscience of trusted servants for understanding and recommended action.

Privacy

  • Remember that this is a public forum, and you have no guarantee or expectation of privacy. Your post could be read by anyone.
  • Posts can be traced. We record information about every user of this forum, and will honor any court orders or requests by recognized law authorities for information about individuals posting libelous material.

  The MIP CODA group reviewed the Posting Guidelines.

It is pinned up as a Sticky there. The plan is to review policies and procedures annually.

 

"We" added a codicil to "our" guidelines:

 

 

In the case of a breach of the guidelines, by an established member:

 

The moderator will contact member by personal message and discuss same.

The moderator 

                       a, may accept the explanation of the member.

                       b, may suggest an edit of the post, or a deletion.

                       c, may delete any posting.

 

If any issue is unresolved the moderator may block posting of any member- or call for a ban of any member by one of the administrators.
