First I want to thank all of you for joining AI Connect. In a little more than a year, you've made this a thriving community — one where aquatics professionals can get ideas, insights and inspiration from each other. I'm proud to be a part of industry that boasts such passionate professionals.
We formed AI Connect to give all of you a way to connect with each other outside of the traditional conferences and trade shows many of you can longer afford to attend. As such I believe it's become a valuable addition to the industry.
However, some members have begun using the site as a promotional area for their products, services and offerings. This is not the proper use of AI Connect, as clearly outlined in our Community Guidelines
, which I reprint here:
The guidelines were formed to protect you and I encourage all of you to review them. If you have any questions about whether something abides by the guidelines, I"ll be happy to answer them. There are some gray areas. But in general, if it's blatant promotion, it probably doesn't belong on this site. That said, you're welcome to announce your events and happenings in our Events
So please see this blog post as a gentle reminder that we do have community guidelines and they will be enforced. I also welcome you to let me know if you see any violations. After all, this is your site, and it's your community.
