New Community Guidelines
The only change to the Guidelines dated today 17 March 2015 from the previous version dated 1 May 2014 is the addition of the following bullet under General Guidelines:
- Do not create more than one Community profile. Alternate profiles will be permanently removed and banned, and offending members will be subject to temporary and/or permanent bans in the HSN Community.
I do appreciate your new Community Guidelines. There have been times during the Solitare change that I was attacked (verbally with strong language) on this website and really did not appreciate that.
I decided it was best not to respond as only this would start an all out problem. Thank you for doing this!
I had no clue more than 1 profile could be created. :womansurprised:
Ok let me throw more "speculation" into this 🙂 I just assumed the smileys were a fun way to let each other know that we appreciate their comment. I think I have a high rank but since i do not know what they mean I am not sure. I have been a shopper for over two decades and due to my great fortune at winning a state of the art hp home computer in 2000 I became one of the first HSN online shoppers :). It has been the greatest place in the world!!! I have only recently started coming to the forums to chat but have always played the games and i have never won a single thing, NADA. Well I guess free shipping and large discounts is not exactly nothing, if I am being fair 🙂
That is just called luck because I see the listed winners and I even recognize many of their names from the forums and it just has not been me, yet 🙂 I have great luck at winning box drawings but not online, I am also lucky in finding money 🙂
I was selected by Adam to win a $25 gift card and that made me soooooo happy and I did not have the most smileys and neither did the other winners so everyone remember to put your comments in and watch his show!!!
This whole topic of the capabilities of HSN and its website is interesting to me. HSN’s website from its inception has been the model all others have tried to follow or should. HSN is amazing and has a record of everything that i have ever ordered this is oddly invaluable information if you look at autoship history. It also surprises me when you shop at other huge sites and you can not see say a dress or bra in every color on a model or when my size for the item doesnt just pop up for me.
HSN has lead the world in electronic communication, i was watching them on the telly when others were still laughing that it would never catch on. 🙂
Wow I thought I was the only one that got that email.
Somehow it’s feels like it’s always me.:smileyindifferent:
The only time I don’t like the forum is when people are mean spirited.
Let’s all just have a little fun.:smileyhappy:
I too am disabled and come here to enjoy reading other’s posts. I volunteer my time as a mentor at an academic forum and spend much of my time with extremely intelligent yet suicidal students. Last year I lost someone there I was very close to, they committed suicide only 3 weeks after my beloved dog passed away, that was when I found this forum, and it is so nice to come here and see how nice and helpful people are. Right now I have one student far away that I feel that I am losing. It helps to come here and see the friendship and compassion that people online have formed, it gives me hope that I can somehow, someway, keep them going.
:heart:Happy St. Patricks Day To You and Yours my Friend Snow, hope you are doing great, and this finds you smiling 🙂 and very Happy?´¯`*•.¸¸?Always..op xoxoxo Tomorrow is another big day at my dentist, a grinding late day too. Next, my appointment with Opthamologist, my tear ducts she put in are not working. No fun, watching a happy-sad-chic flick, and my eyes won’t release the tears again, yet, I need new glasses:) Wishing Your Days are filled with plenty of Sunshine and Angels 🙂 xoxoxo?´¯`*•.¸¸?ToffeeDude?´¯`*•.¸¸?
Thank you HSN for being proactive. We enjoy our community and look forward to the community moving in a positive direction.
So I am new to the forum /community . Am I required to make a purchase to use the forum or enjoy the arcade.
I think all this is to try to stop people from being rude, vulgar, and bullying. I myself have not seen any of those problems but there must have been problems and complaints thru the years. It has been enjoyable for me to read the forums. Just started reading them a couple months ago. I don’t actually talk much (till I get comfortable then you can’t shut me up!!). I am disabled and don’t get out much so it has been nice to spend time here. People here are like family to each other and hope I can participate in some of your family conversations. Anyway I think the mean people get banned then create a new nickname and create havoc with their new name. Like I said I haven’t actually seen any probs but people being people their probably is. I have only seen people being loving and helpful. And people who are being kind don’t need more than 1 nickname.
So if you are a regular poster don’t worry–HSN isn’t coming after you–they just want us all to be aware of the rules.
What I found interesting is the rule against posting INACCURATE statements. If inaccurate statements are a crime, the whole INternet will need to be locked behind bars.
:womanembarrassed: I only have one profile, and I sign in always. ?? I had to sign up several times tonight for emails, but they don’t send me emails. Happy St. Patricks Day to all of HSN hope you enjoy xoxoxo Tofdude. Do I need to read the policy again? Thank you in advance. ToffeeDudexoxo Ouch, is this because I always put a smiley on my page????? I apologize to everyone. Toffeedude
I had always assumed that there was only one profile per shopping account allowed, was that/is that not the case? Are people creating multiple profiles per account, like for family members? The site seems to use "likes" for rankings (something I am opposed to since someone with a lot of family and friends with accounts would get an unfair number of likes). Although there are members like cindy, lizzie, etc.., too many I love reading to list, that really do a lot to deserve their likes, it can become unfair.
I know there has been some speculation about the effect of sockpuppets on people getting a fair chance at winning prizes, but what do I know?
I accepted it without reading it of course but I am only one person and I couldn’t manage another profile….2 of me would be too much LOL :womanlol:
boodlemum, thank you so much for making note of that and letting the rest of us know. When I went to sign in today, I saw that Create Nickname message like I had months ago. I couldn’t sign in for days to post or play games. Then that finally went away.
It had started out just like today’s–having to accept Community Guidelines. The last time it happened, there weren’t any new ones–it was just some problem with my connecting to the website.
I thought the same thing was going to happen again today. So I mindlessly clicked on ‘accept new guidelines’ without reading, fully expecting more troubles signing in. But everything went fine, except that I didn’t look to see the changes. Thankfully you did. So glad that you did and that you posted it. There may be fewer people on the Forums, just saying.
