Community Forum Rules

The TAA is for Toronto community is like a potluck. It's as good as what we bring to the table. 

We feel it’s vital to follow a set of rules to ensure our community works effectively and in the best interest of all members.

Here are the rules of our community:

  • Be kind to new members! Everyone was new once, and we all needed a little guidance.
  • Try to keep the posts on-topic. If you think what you're discussing might be a separate point, start a new post and get some feedback!
  • Criticism should be constructive, not offensive. Personal attacks and hate speech will not be tolerated; this includes negative comments or slurs against race, sexual orientation or gender or threats to a user’s safety.
  • Persistent spamming of subforums or posts or spamming of old posts will not be tolerated.
  • Avoid mentioning or tagging multiple forum members to gain more attention, as this would be considered spamming.
  • Distributing personal or sensitive information about other users will not be tolerated.
  • Do not spam other forum members via direct messages as well. Sending unsolicited messages to multiple members is considered spam and may result in a temporary ban or access being revoked.
  • Forum Moderators may manually mark a post as closed if the topic becomes outdated.
  • We reserve the right to remove content that violates TAA is for Toronto's community values.

  • they contain offensive or harmful material.
