Community Guidelines

Please Read Our Community Rules before Posting!

ITALY Magazine’s Questions & Answers is a place where people can interact and have discussions about several different topics. However, we ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that the forums have some productive conversation :).

These rules and guidelines are enforced by administrators and moderators, and at their discretion, may delete posts without warning that do not comply. Also, failure to comply with these rules may result in a ban from the forums or the entire site. When in doubt play nice and remember that we can be your go-to place for anything Italy!

Rules for this community:

- This is an English web site, so all forum posts must be written in English. Any thread topics or replies written in a language other than English may be removed without notice. Some Italo-english welcomed ;-). - No "flaming" or "badgering" -- writing hostile or insulting messages aimed at other users for their views, comments, status as a user on the site, or any other reason. You can disagree with someone's views and still be polite about it. - No "trolling" -- posting controversial (sometimes off-topic) messages with the intent of baiting other users to reply. We stand by the mantra ‘treat others like you would like to be treated’ - No "spamming" -- No advertisements, or referral links to other services. We also classify "spam" as short replies (usually fewer than 7 words) which do not contribute to a forum thread in a positive manner. Some forum threads expect short messages, but otherwise short messages are highly discouraged. Do not post for the sake of forum post count... your posts will be removed if we see you posting unhelpful or non-contributing messages. - Do not post material that is hateful or mean towards race, religion, sex, or any other offensive nature. - Do not post lewd or offensive content, or links to lewd or offensive content. Keep everything Safe for Work. - No excessive swearing or language. If you're that angry about something, take a break from the forums for a while, or confront the other user directly instead of in the forums. - Turn off your caps lock, do not use excessive ALL CAPS in your posts. - Do not copy or plagiarize comments. --- Most of all have fun! This is a community all about Italy and we want to help, answer your questions and start interesting discussions that benefit anyone and everyone looking for Italy-related information. If you have any questions or need any clarifications about any of the info above get in touch.
