Membership Rules


I am all about encouraging conversations, interactions and community. From time to time as people interact, dramas can creep up and I want to express how much the environment of will be kept positive and encouraging! I thought laying out a few simple ground rules would help keep conversations from turning into hurtful, shouting matches or discourage member participation. I ask that you not post things that would discourage others from entering into this community that we want to keep inspiring life change and welcoming results in a less than positive world!

So, as a member, here are a few things I want you to keep in mind, “the rules” if you will:

You may disagree with other members. I welcome discussion and even debate to offer different perspecitves and points of view. However, I am going to ask that if you disagree with someone, please do so in a way that is respectful and honoring of that other person.

I  do reserve the right to delete your comments if you post something that is,2 (a) snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post and of course we want to encourage each other in business building and networking. (I just don’t encourage harassing, spamming other members in any way!)

You retain ownership of your comments. Megan Elizabeth does not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on this site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve Megan Elizabeth,, Life Above Rubies, AboveRubiesStudio LLC from any and all liability that may result from those postings.

You grant SheMakes, Megan Elizabeth, Life Above Rubies & AboveRubiesStudio LLC a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.

In short, the goal of this membership is to host interesting, inspiring and encouraging conversations with caring, honest, and respectful individuals. I believe these simple rules will help in facilitating and inspiring this.
