Pregnancy.org Guideline Reminders and Announcements
:director:

This space is used to post guideline and rules set up by Pregnancy.org. If you are new to our board. Please make sure to read through them.

Signature and Avatar Guidelines

Please read the following Signature Guidelines

The signature size 400 width x 300 height or 300 width x 400 height includes tickers, blinkies, siggy cards or any other images, this excludes text since there is already a limited amount of text you can put into your siggy area.

Gift Exchange Guidelines

"MissyJ" wrote:

Hi all,

In order to both encourage more participation as well as to help safeguard member's private contact information (full names/mailing addresses) we have put in place the following rules below. Obviously this is not going to resolve all issues, but at least we do hope that it helps those involved have a more pleasant experience:
[list=1]

  • A host or preferably two (in case one gets sick) are asked to be the ones that are in charge of organizing all exchanges held on the board. This includes baby showers, birthday, holidays, cards, *secret sisters*... anything that involves collecting and giving out member's personal contact information -- full names/mailing addresses.
  • It is fine and even encouraged to involve members in the actual planning process -- i.e. setting $$ limits, type of exchange, day of opening, etc.
  • Make certain when posting about the signup that you DO mention that the member accepts any / all risks involved (i.e. neither you nor Pregnancy.org are responsible if they choose to participate.)
  • You do respect the confidentiality of ALL personal contact information submitted and under NO circumstance share it with anyone outside of admin(that would be in an emergency) without the permission of the member other than within the guidelines for the exchange (i.e. the person they are matched with would receive their info. No one else.)
  • NEVER post anyone's personal contact information or allow anyone else to. (See host instructions for more details) All submissions should be sent to the host organizing via pm or email. (*Tip* You may find that it is helpful to organize all this information as it is received in a separate folder on your computer.)
  • We do have eligibility requirements for participants. This is not meant to prevent members for taking part in the fun but insuring some protection for our members that those signing up are *legitimate* members onsite. Eligibility for participation in exchanges (any form!) are set at a minimum of 3 months Pregnancy.org membership and a minimum of 300 posts. This information may be found on any of their post or profile.
  • Please try to respect requests that ask NOT to have their private info sent to certain members. Obviously not everyone is going to get along and yes this does require a bit of extra effort. If you have problems please notify us using the email link at the top of this forum and we will help. This is not something that you should publicize -- simply if someone does come to you and specifically asks "Please do not give ______ my mailing address" then try to respect that if at all possible. (We obviously may have to revisit this in the future if it becomes a big ordeal.)
  • Remember that this IS meant to be fun and enjoyable for all involved. Other hosts are welcome to post on this thread to offer their own advice and suggestions on what makes for a successful exchange (or what not to do!)
  • Thanks everyone!

    I have the hardest time with my avatar so I found this in the Site Help.

    Here's a post to share with your members:

    Hi Everyone!

    Many of you have been having difficulties with having your avatars upload only to disappear. Please accept our sincere apologies for this frustration! We have isolated that the issue appears to be a failure to communicate properly between two of our servers (aptly named bart and maggie) with our main database server (lisa). Whenever you log on to www.pregnancy.org you *actually* are on either bart or lisa. The information then that you input (whether changes to your profile (signature, avatars, etc.), posts, private messages, etc. then *mirror* over to the other server. *Generally* this mirroring process is almost instantaneous. With the avatars -- obviously NOT!!!

    While the situation hasn't been resolved completely to our satisfaction we believe we are able to suggest a way around the issue! We have discovered if you upload using the link below (directly to bart) and then WAIT -- it WILL mirror over within 5 - 30 minutes max.

    To install your avatar to your profile go to:
    http://bart.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/usercp.php

    If you are not logged in, it will direct you to do so.

    Click on "Edit Avatar" (Found in the Control Panel column on the left, under the first category of "Settings and options".)

    Select "Use Custom Avatar" and upload your avatar.

    That's it. You do not have to upload to any of our other servers. JUST WAIT -- make sure that you allow 5 - 30 minutes. If it stays this long then you likely have had a success! So far this has worked for the hosts that have tested it for us! If you continue to have problems please let your host know or contact us at [EMAIL=community@pregnancy.org]community@pregnancy.org[/EMAIL]
