Hive Discussion Board Rules of Engagement

Welcome to the APH Hive discussion board community! We appreciate the time our users take to share ideas and offer feedback to one another. We are dedicated to maintaining a respectful community that actively engages in lively discussions about topics of interest to our community and those who serve them. Therefore, we strongly believe that the APH Hive discussion board should be a safe place where the ideas of everyone are welcome. Please keep the following in mind when writing comments:

  • Post topics that are relevant to the American Printing House for the Blinds’ mission statement. (“To promote the independence of blind and visually impaired persons by providing specialized materials, products, and services needed for education and life.”)

  • Respect Personal Identifying Information by avoiding the use of names and specific areas of location.

  • Be respectful of all the members of the discussion board by sharing relevant thoughts and avoid rudeness, insults, hostility, profanity, and unsupported accusations.

  • Include alternative text for all graphics included in a post.

  • Check the most recent comments before replying to an older comment, since the issue might have already been resolved or opinions may have changed.

  • Keep the discussion board commercial and promotion free.

  • In order to provide a safe space for our discussion board, content may be moderated by APH team members. Content may be removed at any time, at our discretion, in the best interest of the online community.
