1. Be loving
We have a no tolerance policy for negativity, bullying, bigotry, hate speech, gossip, or toxic energy. Encourage and support your fellow Evolving Lovers. Never make anyone feel unwelcome or judged; treat everyone with love and acceptance. If you disagree or have an opposing viewpoint to share, do it with respect, honor and from a place of compassion. Spirited debate about ideas or concepts is awesome, personal attacks are not. If you can’t be kind, be quiet. Violation of this rule is grounds for immediate and permanent removal from the Evolving Love Facebook Group and website discussions without a refund.
2. Be generous
Give more than you ask. We enjoy when you share what you are working. In addition we want you to emphasize sharing wisdom, support and encouragement. Think 3:1. Give 3X more insight, support, and encouragement than you ask for. This will keep our community thriving and vibrant.
3. Don’t spam, mass mail or violate privacy
Never email or contact other members without their permission, or add people to your newsletter list. Violating this is grounds for immediate removal without refund.
4. Don’t use the facebook group to promote (even free things)
This isn’t a business community, it’s a love community. We encourage you to help other community members and we’d be delighted to find out that you made important business and personal connections through Evolving Love. That said, don’t use our platform to promote your stuff (or anyone else’s). Help us keep it pure and focused on evolving into our ideal love stories.
But what if…
In a group of vibrant, passionate people there are bound to be sticky situations. Here are the official steps we recommend you take.
What if… No One Responds to My Posts
Don’t take it personally. Repost and think about how you can contribute to the conversations of others to form genuine connections. This will help you grow a support system within this community. Learn from the threads that have lots of responses. Above all, don’t give up – keep sharing and connecting.
What if… My Post Disappeared in the Facebook Group
If your post isn’t appropriate (it violates our guidelines) or has started to cause problems in the group, it might have been removed by our moderators. We’ll contact you if that happens. See “What Happens if You Don’t Follow The Guidelines” below.
What if… I Want to Sell to Evolving Love Participants
This community is about learning how to evolve yourself and how you relate to others, not turning our members into customers. No promotions of your programs or offerings. If you’ve joined Evolving Love in the hopes of turning the members into your customers (and that’s the ONLY reason), you’re in the wrong place. If we learn that you’re pitching to our members, you’ll be removed without a refund.
What happens if you don’t follow the guidelines?
We really hope that this never happens. But here’s what might happen if you slip up:
We might reach out to you to say that you’re in violation of our Evolving Lovel guidelines and terms (we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt but we take this program and its members very seriously).
We might delete your post with or without notice. If something is deleted, it’s probably not an accident – either too many people reported it or our Evolving Love team found it unsuitable and removed it.
We might remove you from the Evolving Love community.
If you have ANY questions about our guidelines, or if there’s a question we haven’t answered, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
