Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: Community guidelines on active rain. Respect the community.

Community guidelines on active rain. Respect the community.

Active Rain is built for community and is a wonderful place for us to network with each other . When we blog on Active Rain we make friends with other members, get to know them and it creates a sense of community.

There are community guidelines and one guideline that is important is that we should respect the community.

Whatever we post online can be read by others and will stay on the internet forever.( unless we delete it). We can post 'members only'  posts but beware that sometimes people who are not supposed to read it might read it.

We should not use AR as a platform to personally attack our competitors nor should we slander them.

We should show the consumer that we are professionals and should behave in a way that will earn us and our industry respect.

 

 

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.

Each of us will not always agree with the other...Respect is a HUGE part of being a member of AR.

Good morning, Gita Bantwal R-E-S-P-E-C-T as Aretha said!!  we need to respect each other and the community in general.... if we have no respect for a particular individual, stay away....

Good morning Gita. Respect is a cornerstone of this community. We all must learn to disagree without being disagreeable. Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Gita -- you've written about one of the most (in my opinion) important attributes of Active Rain - respect the community. That is one of the things that sets this forum apart from most others. Wishing you a fabulous 2018--with a trip back to San Francisco!

Good morning Gita - yes, it is all about respect.  That is how you build a strong community.

Hi Gita Bantwal - You made some great points. I would not want to be on a platform that did not monitor poor behavior.

Gita, respect is so important and I really appreciate your post. Even if we have differing opinions with other members respect comes first. You make an excellent point as well that you never know who is going to read a post. This isn't the place to bash anyone.

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) 6 months ago

Gita- we cannot be reminded of this enough. We never truly know who will be reading our posts so it is important for many reasons to behave as the professionals that we are.
