    Good morning Forum Members,

    This is Ken Carter from Polk Audio HQ. I am the Website Support Specialist for Polk Audio and Definitive Technology. Also, I get the escalated Forum issues from Ken Swauger. I am your bridge between the Forum community and the rest of the team here at Sound United.



    So there is no confusion, here is what will take place if something like this happens in the future.

    1st offense - 30 day ban
    2nd offense - lifetime ban


    Ken

    2nd offence = lifetime ban seems way overkill to me unless it is really bad?? No warnings, 2 offences an gone forever. Is there a time-frame on the 2 offences?

    I agree with the fact the rules of conduct should be enforced. I'm also with vmaxer on there should be some warnings if things start to "appear" to get heated.

    A good debate without some emojis can look like a fight, but really isn't much different than a group of us sitting in a room debating a topic....it's just that type-written paragraphs don't portray the whole story since there's no emotions involved, or facial expressions.

    Again, I agree with the involvement so glad you are here to keep things in check.

    I have suggested a ban on DBT talk here based on how well that works at Hoffman.

    Well put. That is a fact that some folks either don't understand or don't care about and the reason why some folks get a massive backlash when they step out of line.

    Color me blind Jesse, but where did you quote the "family" from?

    Because it's the truth!!!!

    I only have one question...what's a tweeter? And can we get a new background? And can we have a wider text area? It's as if the actual area for our threads was meant for an old 800x600 CRT monitor and then it was overlaid onto a modern sized page that has a background picture which takes up 50% of the page.

  • Thank you all for responding and sharing your thoughts. I have already been in touch with a few of you about changes and clearing things up.

    This is a community and a family. We may have disagreements about how certain things should be run but at the end of the day if everyone respects everyone else then there won't be any issues.

    @Hermitism I have noted the background and that is going to be changed again back to something that is a little less bright.

    The punishments may seem harsh but if everyone respects each other and doesn't personally attack them or their views everything will work out just fine.

    Again, feel free to reach out to me with any issues you have or comments.
