No SPAM or Advertising
AuthorStand messaging is only to be used to send personal messages from one individual member to another. If you receive a message from another member that appears to be a bulk message or is attempting to sell you a product or service, please let us know.
Keep Comments Constructive
When sending a private message to another member, if you are sending comments or advice on a piece they have posted, keep the comments constructive. Let them know what about the piece was good as well as where they could improve. Avoid using inflammatory language.
We do not read or screen the content of your private messages. Messages you send will only be viewed by you and the recipient of your choice.
