What's this board about?


Welcome to the Polyamory.com discussion boards! These boards are intended to provide a forum for those folks who are polyamorous or poly-curious. We welcome poly folk of every orientation--hetero, GLBT, pansexual, asexual, or anything else--and involved in every sort of poly tangle--vee, triad, quad, circle, network, whatever.

What are the boundaries to participate here?

All registered users are encouraged to take a look at our User Guidelines which address the standards of language and behavior expected of Polyamory.com members.

I'm new here and/or to Polyamory, where do I start?

If you want to look for a specific topic, then try conducting a search of the forum. More information on searching can be found in the FAQ on Searching Forums and Threads.

If it sounds like everyone here is speaking funny words that are new and strage sounding and you have no idea what it means, then take a look through the New to Polyamory: Glossary and Definitions thread.

Finally, if you just want to browse, but don't want to spend a bunch of time trying to find the good stuff, then take a look though the Golden Nuggets: Master Thread - links to other threads worth reading to find pointers to some of the more notable threads.

I submitted a post, but I can't see it. What happened?

If you are new to the Forum, with fewer than five posts, your post may have been caught by the spam filters. If there are hyperlinks in your post, or if it's long, it increases the chance that the filter might have picked up your post as spam.

If this is the case, it will require a moderator to clear the post. We try to get to them on a routine basis, but that could still mean 12 hours or more before one of us might get to it.

Please, don't keep posting the same thing over again...it'll just look like more spam. If you are concerned about it, or if it's taking too long, or if you just want to make sure we don't ban you by accident (not entirely unknown to happen), then you can send a PM to one of the mods indicating that you are waiting for a post to be approved.

Is there an age limit?

This is an adults-only site, so if you're reading these guidelines and aren't yet 18 years of age we have to ask you to leave until you are of age. This may include a limited ban on your account while will automatically lift on or shortly after your 18th birthday.
