The Three Commandments!
The spirit of the Discussion Zone can be summed up by the following 'Three Commandments':
  1. Play Nice.
    • If you want to receive constructive criticism, then give constructive criticism.
    • Please mind your language, so that schools and colleges don't block the site.
    • Netiquette is a lovely word. I will not hesitate to take action to maintain a supportive and constructive atmosphere.
    • When posting a new mix/master version, please don't delete old mix/master threads or replace previous audiofile attachments -- just add a new post to the same thread with the revised mix/master attached. Not only does this increase the educational value of the thread (because readers can follow the development of the mix/master in response to the feedback), but it also avoids antagonising other users by destroying their feedback posts, which may have taken them a good deal of time and effort to write.

  2. Maximise The Signal-To-Noise Ratio.
  3. Death To Dead Links!
    • Broken audio-file links render any related discussion meaningless and waste everyone's time. If your audio-file link dies, then I may remove or edit the thread without warning.
    • In order to keep links live, please upload your mixes/masters as audio files if at all possible. This also allows people who don't have an internet connection on their studio computer to download and audition your mix offline.
In addition to these overall guidelines, the usual internet-forum 'small print' also applies, as follows:
