In short, be cool. We realize that this is the internet, and it’s easy for everyone and their uncle to be loud, obnoxious, and/or downright mean; but we don’t go for that here. Give your opinions as politely as you can, and if you find that someone insists on disagreeing with you, don’t engage.
Accept that not everyone is as cool as you are and move on to bigger and awesomer things.Posts that are profane and/or combative may be deleted. The same goes for spam and posts of suspicious/questionable origin.
We love it when you share our posts, photos, and videos. We just ask that you do not remove any watermarks, crop, or edit any of our images without first obtaining written permission.
All tools and printables are for personal use only. Please feel free to share our links. Thank you!
