RULES

We do hate rules, but find they are necessary for a smooth running of a social network. We cannot fine you, but we can ask that you abide by the simple Rules set out below. We want this list to be FUN and encouraging. By abiding by the rules, you ensure that MiniDollList IS a fun, safe, and sharing place.

Rule #1 - Basic computer courtesy
A. Do not FLAME or SHOUT (use all capital letters) or attack anyone on the list in public. If you have a problem with rules or something said, email Kathi at sewminipatterns@att.net.
B. Are you posting a note OFF TOPIC; place OT in subject line
C. Complete the subject line. Often empty subject lines suggest SPAM and we do not want that.
D. When at all possible - respond in private for chit chat/non-doll subjects. Better yet, join the Posse group in the chat room on Thursdays and Sundays.

Rule #2 – Signature lines
A. Signature lines may not exceed three (3) lines. Name, web, or saying, no pictures.
B. Signature lines should all be in the same font and all the same size.
C. Dana Burton owns this site and her signature is just three lines.

Rule #3 - Posting Sales and making requests
Please remember selling is a privilege and not a right.
A. Sales on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday
Post personal items on these days only along with auctions if you have them. Being on Digest does not change these rules. Please attempt to sell only as designated. You may ask people to visit your Blog, website or to visit an auction site. You may list dolls for sale, doll supplies, tutorials, miniatures, on-line class, classes, and Shows or Miniature Meetings in your area.
B. Auto mailing
We discourage automatic, automated, or robotic sales. Please take the time to feature and item and post it.
Post MiniDollU classes at any time, but not more than once a day. Please see www.minidolllist.com to keep abreast of announcements.
C. Request for items
If you are searching for an item, please ask for a link or information to the list on any day. However, complete transactions privately and not on the forum.
D. Moderators may sell on their moderating day.
