Posts that are unacceptable and discouraged...

When posting gifs that are NOT provided as emoticons please remember that it is 3 gifs per post max. Failure to comply to this may result in warning points.
Example posts that violate our Community Guidelines:
Here are some real-life examples of replies where members received Warning Points for violating our Community Guidelines.

The Exhale Moderators Team:
- The Exhale Moderators Team are members who dedicate their time to moderate the forum. They are here to preserve order, keep things organized and most importantly... help you if you are in need.
- Please treat moderators with the utmost respect and kindness!
- If your topic/post has been edited or deleted by a moderator, respect that. If you have a question, reach out and respectfully ask for clarification.
- If you are facing any kind of problem, send a private message to one of the moderators to discuss it (versus airing out your dirty laundry in public).
Rules On Reporting:
While it is encouraged to report any rule breaker within reason, try not to misuse the report button. Do not report anything unless it is actually worth reporting - this includes (but is not limited to) topics that have already been locked.
In short, the following is what is deemed worth reporting by the Exhale Moderators Team:
- Racist/homophobic/transphobic/***ist posts
- File sharing/download links/snippets of upcoming releases (audio/video)
- Duplicate accounts/previously banned members
- Website promoters (threads/posts/messages)
- Stalking/posting personal information without permission (threads/posts/messages)
- Death threats/wishes
