Glowsticking.com Rules and Regulations Feb 1st, 2010
Because of confusion as to what the punishment and stances of glowsticking.com, we will list and explain every rule and regulation here. The rules are subject to review by staff vote every year, with veto power by unanimous admin vote unless overruled by a 2/3's majority by rest of staff. In addition, a site wide poll will be held a week before that will gauge the popular opinion of members on the site. All of the votes will be public.
If you need a refresher on what glowsticking.com stands for, please view this article.
Glowsticking.com is not interested in a debate about any of the core rules. We will explain these rules and engage in discussion about special cases. Glowsticking.com reserves the right to delete, lock, or modify posts, and warn, suspend, or ban members at any time for violation of any rules.

B. General Forum Rules
C. Meetup Rules
Discouraged Behavior- These are various things you can do which are discouraged but often accepted on a case by case basis.
