Moderating Posts

Help Sattvika Nutrition create a friendly community that helps all our Members achieve their health and fitness goals. As Sattvika Nutrition has a small team of administrators who also act as moderators, it isn’t possible for Sattvika Nutrition to read every post. Sattvika Nutrition needs Your support. Please report any post that isn’t in accordance with the guidelines using the “Report Post” link. One of Sattvika Nutrition’s moderators will review the post and resolve any identified issues in a timely manner.

9.    Please don’t post the Same Topic on Multiple Forums. Please select the appropriate Forum for Your topic. Posting the same topic to multiple forums by the same user is a form of spam. We would rather that you respond politely if a user posts a topic that has already been started by a different user.

10. Please don’t create Multiple Accounts. Please don’t create additional accounts in order to get around a forum ban. This may result in a permanent ban from the site.

11. Public Airing of Grievances with Moderators, Admins or Other Users in forums isn’t permitted.

c.    Please use the Tech Support and User Suggestion forums for general questions and/or concerns unrelated to a specific user.

d.    Please do not threaten moderators or admins, as this may result in a permanent ban from the site without a refund of subscription fees. Sattvika Nutrition’s team works hard to improve the site and ensure that FitnSpicy Living remains a positive and supportive site for everyone. If there are concerns, Sattvika Nutrition’s team does its best to be fair and polite. Sattvika Nutrition requires that our community members also reciprocate in a respectful manner. It is understandable that some users may react extremely in these situations but Sattvika Nutrition won’t accept such reactions and reserve the right to deny such users access to the site at any time. If You have an issue with a moderator decision or action, You may send a private message to Sattvika Nutrition via the “Contact Us” link. Please don’t post such disputes on the forums themselves.

12. Profane, Vulgar, or Explicit Images that are forbidden by the law aren’t permitted. All images on the site, including all profile pictures and images posted in the forums, should be decent and work-place friendly. Sattvika Nutrition reserves the right to remove any image that Sattvika Nutrition feels is inappropriate. Photos altered to present inaccurate weight-loss results are prohibited. Please use authentic photos for Your success stories to maintain a supportive environment for all Users.

14. Advertising, Self-Promotion, Promotion of Competitors or Fund-Raising isn’t permitted. Don’t initiate contact, post any links or mentions of other services, websites, or businesses from which You or an associate might benefit financially or otherwise.

a.    Requests or solicitations for donations aren’t allowed in the best interests of our community. This includes requesting contributions to “pooled fund” competitions, requests for votes in online contests, and requests for charitable contributions. We are a small organization and it would be hard for us to authenticate such requests. As You can imagine, Sattvika Nutrition has a lot of people who would like to raise money for worthy causes through the site. As much as Sattvika Nutrition would like to support these causes, if Sattvika Nutrition were to allow requests for donations, the forums would quickly become full of such requests which would take away from the main purpose of the community forums.

b.    Posts or messages to members promoting websites that compete with FitnSpicy Living are also prohibited.

15. Please Post In English on the Forums. In order that Sattvika Nutrition’s English-speaking moderator team can properly understand and evaluate all posts, Sattvika Nutrition requests that all posts on the Forums are made in English. We are evaluating the addition of Google Translate to some of our pages in the future.

16. Violation of These Guidelines May Lead to Disciplinary Action.

a.    Sattvika Nutrition reserves the right to delete or lock topics, to revoke the posting rights of any member, or to deny anyone use of Sattvika Nutrition’s site at any time, for any reason, at Sattvika Nutrition’s discretion without warning immediately.

b.    Sattvika Nutrition feels strongly that posts or actions disregarding these guidelines doesn’t contribute to the supportive atmosphere of FitnSpicy Living. Such posts may lead to consequences including warning, suspension of posting rights, removal of a user from the site, or, in extreme cases, involvement of law enforcement authorities. As a general practice, Sattvika Nutrition will operate on a “three strikes” system. If moderators block You from 3 topics for any of the above reasons, You will be permanently banned from all of the Forums. It is in Sattvika Nutrition’s sole discretion whether to use this “three strikes” system. Sattvika Nutrition discretion shall be applied on a case-by-case basis.

17. Please see that these guidelines are subject to change. We are grateful for Your cooperation and Sattvika Nutrition hopes You are enjoying FitnSpicy Living.
