Like any well organized subdivision,

Active Rain has its rules!

As a homeowner becomes a member, or part of a subdivision, we have entered the community of Active Rain, in which we find street names, such as REALTOR®, Stager, Agents, Managing Broker, Mortgage, Inspectors, Appraisers, Builders and many other Real Estate related names that make up the Active rain community.

I am a Real Estate Professional, just like you and was looking for a great place to call home. I want to welcome you to the community of Active Rain.

Like any community, it has its rules and regulations that have been written, for the betterment of the community. The Community of Active Rain stretches part way around the world, encompassing several countries. It is a community dedicated to the advancement of techniques and knowledge that will enable comsumer’s to own their own homes, as well as furthering the advancement of Real Estate Professionals everywhere.

As members in this community, we are able to network among each other, learning how the Real Estate Profession operates in other States or Countries, gleaning information, that can be used to further the transactions we face on a daily basis.

In the building of this expansive community, guidelines have been drawn up, in order to make this, the best place in the world for Real Estate professionals to live and call home. Read over the Community Guidelines, so that you can be a respected citizen of Active Rain, who will be able to receive helpful information and give respected criticism to further the knowledge of other community members.

In this challenge,

we are to choose on the of the guidelines and discuss our thoughts on this issue.


"We encourage Free Speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view, but we don't permit hate speech, which contains slurs, or the use of stereotypes intended to attack or demean a particular gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or nationality.

As most of us have discovered, there are a lot of sites that obviously don't respect this rule.  Those are the sites that I stay away from, when on my computer. My ideals line up with this rule, therefore, not only do I abide by it on Active Rain, but it is carried over to my own world.  I wouldn't treat them bad, so why should I treat my community bad as well.

The Active Rain community is like a breath of fresh air, thanks to their "Community Rules". Even though this blog is to pick from the list of rules, the "Community Guidelines" is one combined rule, for us to follow. We cannot choose to follow some and not others. Enjoy you stay here, at Active Rain....... I will!

The rules of fair play on the platform should be self explanatory yet some people seem to think they can do as they please.  They don't stay here very long.

These rules have been tested a bit in the past few months, but at least it is nothing like the severe bullying that I am seeing on FB and Twitter this week.

I love how you tied this in with a subdivision and their covenants and restrictions. Well done!

I actually like rules. Some of them do need modified and adjusted with time, but most of them work great.
