Members’ Posts - Guidelines:
Be nice. Treat others with respect, courtesy and consideration at all times. Keep the content focussed on professional issues and refrain from making any comments which could cause personal offence. Please don’t use your posts for critical comment of other Members or members of CARPENTERS FELLOWSHIP staff.
Think before your post. It’s sometimes tricky to communicate online. Try to be clear about what you are saying and be prepared for people to interpret your contribution differently than you intended. If you are not sure what to say, wait and see how the conversation develops. Each special interest group has a specific Group Champion to steer and enliven conversations! Don’t be too hasty either, check your wording before you post.
Take responsibility. You remain responsible for the quality of your conversations. This is a positive, dynamic and intelligent place for discussion – please focus on that when contributing.
Look out for each other. Remember that most content is generated by Members for Members. CARPENTERS FELLOWSHIP staff are not responsible for monitoring or validating comments or contributions, so please don’t rely on anything posted as if it were professional advice. If you are not comfortable with specific posts, for whatever reason, you can email email@example.com for assistance.
Keep things professional. Member posts should not be used as a vehicle to comment on CARPENTERS FELLOWSHIP business or raise grievances. If you have feedback to share about the CARPENTERS FELLOWSHIP, you are advised to use the existing channels available to you.
Any content which does not relate to professional issues should be flagged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and risks being reported or deleted.
Don’t share personal data. Please do not publish or post other people's private information (such as home phone number and address) without their express authorisation and permission.
