New Rules for a New Year: The First Rule Change for Tanglewoods Moms EVER!
We started Tanglewood Moms over a decade ago, never dreaming it would become so popular! As the membership has grown, the needs of the group have grown and changed. Today, we go live with the first major update to the rules we’ve ever had.
To give everyone a chance to familiarize themselves with the groups, we’ve posted them here.
Rule 1: No Hate Speech or Bullying
EVERYONE should feel safe here. Bullying of any kind and degrading/judgmental comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or identity are not tolerated. ZERO tolerance – you will be removed ALL TWM groups.
Rule 2: This Is NOT a Forum to Air Your Grievances
We understand. Everyone gets angry. But those posts belong on your own page, not here. Think before you post!
Rule 3: No Hot-Button Debates or Political Posts
This rule includes vaccine debates, politics, or anything that inspires hurtful exchanges. If your post must be turned off for commenting more than once, you will be removed from ALL TWM groups.
Rule 4: No Business Bashing
If you have an issue with any business or businessperson, please do not share that information here. First, take it up with the business; next, use online reviews. ZERO tolerance – you will be removed without warning from ALL TWM groups.
Rule 5: No Promotion of Personal Businesses
No promotion of personal businesses allowed, including job postings. This includes side hustles. If you would like to work with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about advertising options. Repeat offenders will be removed from ALL TWM groups.
Rule 6: No Promotion of Other Groups
We’ve spent over a decade building this community. We have put in countless hours to maintain the group, so in order to maintain the purpose and integrity of it, we do not allow promotions of any groups that we do not manage.
Rule 7: No Buy/Sell Posts
This group is not a buy/sell group. We run several buy/sell groups under the Tanglewood Moms umbrella, and we would love to have you join them. All buy/sell posts will be removed. This includes ticket sales of any kind. Repeat offenders will be removed from ALL TWM groups.
Rule 8: No Asking for Charity
Please do not ask our members for financial help. There are many wonderful organizations in our area that can help. This includes asking for yourself or for a friend/neighbor/acquaintance/stranger.
Rule 9: Real Estate Posting Restrictions
No realtor posts allowed. No rental posts allowed. No homes outside of the Fort Worth area are allowed. If your PERSONAL home is for SALE, you may post a link to it or pictures. Real estate agents, please email email@example.com to learn about advertising with us.
Rule 10: Miscellaneous Posts Not Allowed
No pets for foster, adoption, or sale; we have the “Tanglewoof Moms” group for that. No garage/estate/yard sale posts. No spam posts. If you have a question about a post, ask an admin or moderator!
There we are! There will be a week’s grace period while we all adjust, but repeat offenders will be removed starting on Wednesday, January 25, 2023. Please note that repeat offenders of all rules will be removed and blocked from ALL Tanglewood Moms groups, including the buy/sell groups, so pay attention. And remember, we above all follow the Golden Rule, so do unto others as you would have them do unto you!
Thank you for rules number 8 and 10. Some of the posts we’re starting to get a bit ridiculous.
Thanks for your ongoing efforts to make TWM a great forum for QnA, thoughtful advice and suggestions.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
