    NewTek Discussion Forums Moderation Policy

    The NewTek Discussion Forums are a private venue provided as a service to NewTek customers at NewTek's discretion. As such, the NewTek Discussion Forums are not a free speech zone, but exist primarily to facilitate professional and civil discourse regarding the use of NewTek products by those who own them.

    New Accounts
    Note that account activation is not instant. The forum sends you a verification email that requires a reply when you create your new account. If this email doesn't arrive in a short time, check your spam folder. Because new memberships are manually validated, a one-time delay ranging from a few minutes to several hours long may pass before you have full forum privileges.

    We're sorry for this one-time nuisance, but this has proven to be the most effective way to prevent the forums from being inundated with spam. (If you have registration problems, or your new account has not been activated within one day, please use the contact form link at the bottom of the forum page to email a moderator for help.)

    Your Membership
    Membership and activity in these forums is by invitation. Your ongoing privileges are subject to adherence to this forum policy (which may be updated from time to time), and your invitation to exercise your privileges as a member may be revoked at the discretion of moderators

    Please bear in mind that posting in a public forum on the Internet is comparable to writing a letter to the editor to be published in a newspaper. As in the case of a letter to the editor, words you post here become part of a public conversation and cannot really be successfully expunged later. For related reasons, your account should also be considered permanent, as in most other forums. At the discretion of moderators, requests to modify or delete an account may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

    Off Topic and Controversial Posts
    The following items are not considered professional or civil discourse allowed on these forums:
    • Off-topic and controversial subjects such as Religion and Politics
    • Comments, language, or crude expressions of an "off color" nature inappropriate for viewing by minors
    • Non-constructive criticism or remarks of a malicious nature
    • Personal attacks against individuals, whether the target is another member, NewTek employee, a public figure, or a complete unknown.
    • Promotional messages and material for competing products

    The accounts of those who cannot keep their posts on topic, are unable to maintain responsible civil conversation with others, or who have no purpose on the NewTek forums other than to promote competing products will be removed. Moderation decisions are not subject to public discussion. If you have comments, send an email or private message to the moderators.

    Third Party Topics
    As a courtesy we allow third party vendors with NewTek-related training and other products to post announcements in the appropriate third party or community forum sections for the related NewTek product. If you have any problematical issues as a consumer or would-be consumer of those third party products, follow up directly with the vendor on their support venue or by private channels. Other forum users should treat third party announcement posts placed in the proper sections as respected guests here.

    Special addendum for General Discussion section

    Please leave the General Discussion area for conversations that are not product-specific for either NewTek or third party products. If you have a question on how to use a specific NewTek product, for example TriCaster or LightWave, please use the appropriate forums for asking such questions. We've provided those areas to make it easier to get and find answers to product-specific questions.

    For discussion of third party products specifically as related to their use with the host NewTek product, please use the appropriate third party area:
