Port St. Lucie Breaking News GROUP RULES

Port St. Lucie Breaking News
Port St. Lucie Breaking News


This is a wonderful group, and we appreciate you! These group rules are necessary mainly for the few members that think PSLBN is a free-for-all. It is not. WE TAKE THESE GROUP RULES SERIOUSLY.

We will approve posts that offer value to the community and not the ones that will bring discord and chaos to the group. Historically speaking, these posts would include rants/venting.
We have group rules that everyone agreed to when they joined this group. They need to be followed. After three warnings, the violating member is removed from the group. Our volunteer admins work very hard each day and night to make this the awesome group it is. The work is neverending, kinda like beading a necklace with no knot at the end.
As always, and I can’t say this enough – if anyone sees an unneighborly comment, PLEASE use the three dots to the right of the comment and report it to ADMINS. There is absolutely no reason to bash another member.

The official Group Rules can be found under the group “ABOUT” information, and each time a member makes a post, they will pop up at the top of the dialog box.

1. If you decide to break the rules

All members have agreed to the group rules. If you decide to break them, the admins have the authority to boot you from the group

2. Be kind and courteous

-RESPECT EVERYONE, no matter who they are or where they’re from. This is a large group and a fair representation of PSL, so let’s spread the sunshine. We’re all in this together to create a friendly and welcoming community environment.-Kindness, and common courtesy is required

-Antagonistic, belittling and discriminatory comments will be deleted. Bullying, harassment, name-calling, insults, profanity, or rudeness of any kind WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Offenders WILL be removed from this group.

3. No Trolling, Stalking, Harassing

Members who make offensive or provocative posts or comments that disrupt and cause discord are considered trolls.
-Multiple argumentative and non-relevant comments are considered trolling
-Harassing a member of the group or arguing with an admin is a removable offense.
-Members that harass or stalk another member’s personal page will be permanently banned from ALL breaking newsgroups.
-Anyone that blocks an admin will be removed from ALL breaking newsgroups IMMEDIATELY.

4. Commenting

-If you have nothing helpful or productive to add to a post, kindly scroll by.
-No hate speech, graphic photos or memes, suggestions of violence or profanity.
-𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗿 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗱, 𝗗𝗢 𝗡𝗢𝗧 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗶𝘁.
𝗣𝗠 𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝗱𝗺𝗶𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗱. 𝗪𝗲’𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗸.

5. More on Commenting and Posting 

-Any member suggesting a fellow member should move will be removed from the group
-The name of this group is Port St Lucie Breaking News. As with the other six breaking newsgroups owned by TreasureCoast.com, this is our brand.
-PLEASE do not ask, “is this breaking news?” Read the ABOUT info.
-Sometimes, a post can take hours before it shows up in our queue. We have no control over it. Please be mindful of this when you submit a post, especially a time-sensitive one. Submit events early, and be sure to add them to the TreasureCoast.com Event Calendar.

6. Posting

-All posts will be approved or declined on a case-to-case basis.
-For complaints about a business, bring your issue directly to them. We do not bash local small businesses here.
-If comments in a post turn ugly – the post, comments, and/or members may be removed.
-Please keep posts relevant to Port Saint Lucie and immediate areas
-NO factually inaccurate or misleading information or unfounded rumors.
-Images with legible license plates or personal identifying info are not allowed as per Meta.

7. Recommendations

-When asking for a recommendation, please pose your question to members to share their positive experience. Do not ask businesses to post their info. That’s not a recommendation; it’s an ad.
-𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗼𝘄𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝘆 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗼𝗿𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺𝘀𝗲𝗹𝘃𝗲𝘀! But they can advertise. Only $25 to reach 180,000 people. Dawn@TreasureCoast.com
-Recommendations will be approved on a case-by-case basis. They should not take the place of a Google or Yelp search.

8. NO Business Promos, NO Buy/Sell, NO Politics

-Self-promotion, spam, and irrelevant links aren’t allowed.
-No personal ads, yard, or merchandise sales. All ads are by TreasureCoast.com. Please contact Dawn@TreasureCoast.com for advertising.
-Please, no religious posts except for events and sponsors of TreasureCoast.
-Absolutely NO PET SALES or rehoming of pets as per Meta
-This is not a buy/sell/free group. There are local groups for that.
-No political posts or comments. Members posting a derogatory comment or meme will be removed from the group.

9. Duplicate Posting

-Use the ‘magnifier’ search tool before you post. A single keyword search works best. Example: “Fence” will find fencing posts. “Where can I get my fence repaired” will not get you results.
-Before posting or commenting, PLEASE read the page. Scroll through the posts and comments to avoid duplicates.

10. PLEASE, no GoFundMe requests, or solicitations for money. Every once in a blue moon @TreasureCoast will post a fully vetted campaign.
