Does anyone know if there are Choir rules posted anywhere on the new site? I haven't been able to locate any. I'm looking for (1) rules on use/abuse of the site/forum/blog and (2) what SPECIFICALLY a Choir membership entitles you to (Ex: Opportunities to submit X # of requests for meet and greets, opportunity to participate in presale, opportunity to post* in the forums/blogs, etc).
I know the old site had a good page on #2 but I haven't seen either on this new site, yet. My curiosity out of #1 stems from some spam posts that have started showing up around the new site. I think this is abuse of the membership and site but there is nothing stating that anywhere.
TO MCN: If there hasn't been a page created for either #1 or #2 above, please consider and let us know if this is something you may be adding in the future so we can reference it. Thanks!
* It appears that the blogs & forums are now public unlike the previous site. I don't like this as it removes the exclusivity of purchasing a membership. MANY Choir members in the past have purchased memberships but do not post. Now there is no reason to purchase a membership if you just want to read the forum as it is publicly accessible.
BUT I think they need to have some sort of public forum...
Whether they have an exclusive area for fanclub members - or have one area for non-fanclub members - I think that shutting it to all public - turns people off/away.
There have been a few artists that I've lost interest in as their boards are locked down completely.
*BUT* there should be some area where only members and read/post.
I completely agree with you! There needs to be a clear, posted list of the rules regarding use of the site and the treatment of others - what is and is not accepted. Also, a way to report any abuses.
Also, I agree with you regarding the accessibility of the forum. We pay for the right, we should be the only ones to have use of it.
