1. Post appropriately.
Post topics appropriate for TypeDrawers, and post them in the appropriate category. Dialogue should remain about typeface design, lettering, and subjects that affect the community as a whole. If the topic you wish to discuss doesn’t fit in any of those categories, it’s because there are better venues for subjects like typography advice, typeface identification
, and graphic design feedback.
Stick to the original topic of each discussion. If the conversation moves in a clearly different direction, then start a new discussion. Do not hijack threads or engage in personal disagreements that should be resolved privately. This is a place to discuss our work, not each other.
2. Be civil and considerate.
Personal attacks are unacceptable, and members are encouraged to flag such posts, or alert the moderators
. Difference in opinions are welcome. Pointing fingers and disqualifying people is not. Do not present an opinion as fact, or post a point over and over. For further reading on what our standards are, please refer to the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct
Bullying and harassment will not be tolerated.3. Flag responsibly.
The “Breaking the Rules” flag should be used responsibly and for serious purposes. Any post breaking these rules can be flagged. A post with five or more flags is buried (though it is still visible through a click), and alerts moderators that other action may need to be taken. We are a small community and sometimes people do not flag when they read an offensive post, so if you see something, say something
.4. Don’t share copyrighted material.
Unauthorized reproductions of copyrighted materials will not be allowed. Anything being shared should only be shared by the original copyright holder or the links/information will be removed.5. You are free to leave, but not free to change the history of a discussion.
If you want to leave TypeDrawers, you can do so by contacting a moderator
. Your account will then be set to "inactive" and your posts will remain.6. You may have multiple accounts.
You are allowed to have multiple accounts (such a personal account and a business account). If it is deemed that multiple accounts have been created for the purpose of evading the rules or a ban, the accounts will be removed without notice.7. The decisions of Moderators and Admin are final.
Membership of the forum can be revoked without any reason being given. Moderators reserve the right to delete or edit any questionable posts at their discretion and without warning.8. TypeDrawers Moderators and Administrators are not responsible for the content posted here.
While TypeDrawers is actively moderated, we do not approve every post and are therefore not responsible for the content posted. If we have missed something or you take issue with a post please report it so we can resolve any issue.
That’s it! TypeDrawers is open to a wide range of views and we tolerate strong disagreement and debate, but those who repeatedly break the rules will not be tolerated.
Members are welcome to discuss any of the rules by posting a new, topic-specific thread
Questions or private issues can be sent to the moderators in a direct message
