Recent ActiveRain Features and an Apology From Our Team

In case you ever doubted that the AR Gods are a class act...

Original content by Bob Stewart

We recently made a mistake by featuring a few posts that we believe violated our community guidelines, and by doing so we believe we harmed the reputation of this network of professionals. Our entire team apologizes for this and I take full responsibility as one of the posts was something I featured. 

As a result of this snafu we revamped our methodology for featuring posts and even added the 'suggest' button. In the future, we will make every effort to only feature posts that reflect our quest to "represent our industry in as true and professional of a light as possible".

This doesn't mean we will shy away from controversial posts or that we will stop defending our member's rights to express unpopular points of view. We don't always agree on things amongst our team, just like our members don't always agree on everything. Among our team we always strive to treat each other with respect and we expect our members to do the same. Varying opinions is part of what makes our community great. Respecting each other is what will allow us to continue to challenge the status quo and continue to refine our industry.

All that being said, our community guidelines have served us well to this point and a renewed focus on the tenets of our community are important as we choose which posts to feature. We know this, and we take it very seriously.




  Friends, followers, and connections are the way of the future.

I agree with Leolinda. Admitting that you are wrong is not easy. It takes integrity.
