Site Rules


Confidentiality
It is a condition of participating in the online courses led by Karen Kingston on this site that you agree not to share the content with anyone outside the course. This includes Karen Kingston’s posts and other people’s posts, both during the course and after it has finished. You may share your own posts as you wish.

No Copyright Infringement
Karen Kingston warrants that she is the copyright holder of all course material, post, and comments posted by her to this site, and they may not be quoted or used in any way without her express written permission. It is fine to link to text and photos on other websites, but please do not post any text or photos to this site unless you are the copyright owner or attach to the material the express permission of the copyright owner.

Photos
It is a condition of participating in the online courses led by Karen Kingston on this site that you upload a recent photo of yourself (preferably taken within the last year) that will appear next to each post you make and will allow other course participants to be able to relate to you better. Hiding behind an alternative image such as a flower will not facilitate your own progress in the course, and can create an uncomfortable feeling for other participants because of not being able to see who is reading their posts. It is therefore not permitted.

A square head and shoulders image is best, with you looking towards the camera and not wearing sunglasses or anything that obscures your face. The optimum size is 200px x 200px and there is a built-in editing tool if resizing is necessary, or you can send your photo to help@karenkingstoncourses.com if you need help doing this.

Language
All posts to this site must be in English.

Courtesy to other participants
Each participant is encouraged to make a post to each step of the course as it progresses, and perhaps add a few comments to other people's posts. However please do not make so many posts or comments that it will cause irritation to other participants or make them feel overwhelmed by having too much to read. A good guideline is one post per step of no more than 10 lines in length, and no more than two or three brief comments to each step.

No Offensive Material
Please do not post messages that are obscene, vulgar, rude, insulting, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, racist, sexist, discriminatory, and/or violate any local or international laws. This includes links in your signature, profile, posted images, photos, and avatars.
