16. The A-List Rules
We look forward to all the wonderful conversations and friendships that will be made in our private members' club, and like in a private all clubs, there are a few rules and codes of conduct we MUST uphold to make this space safe and fun for everyone...
1a. Be polite and respectful at all times. Even when you disagree with someone else. Actually, especially when you disagree with someone else! If you feel "triggered", ask yourself why first, as we practice emotional maturity here and don't blame or attack others. That's when discussions can become heated, and it becomes uncomfortable for everyone there, and our team has to step in and delete or remove comments, posts...or members.
Remember, this club is for ladies of all cultures, races, faiths, beliefs, and adult ages. There will be many here that are of a different point of view than you on some things. We specifically do NOT discuss politics, “social justice” topics, polarizing public figures, or pass judgments on religions, as these conversations never go well.
1b. Go into Guides & Travel and read Anna Bey's Guide: Online Etiquette before you post or comment. It's a super-quick read that will get you off to successful online socializing, and help keep your online conversations elegant! And while we are pretty open to all conversations, we do reserve the right to remove any comments, posts, or content that devalues the group experience. We keep our standards high in the club.
And remember to report any comments, posts, or DMs you may receive that are breaking the rules, are really inappropriate, bullying, attempting to hijack the conversation into another direction, or are an attempt to discredit or supplant our founder Anna Bey, whether overtly or passive-aggressively. Staying on topic is necessary, as are respecting the group values. (Please read our Positioning Statement).
1c. Don't break the trust of the club's privacy. When we are socializing with each other here in the club, we may get a little vulnerable and share some issues that are hampering our lifestyle and networking success for a bit of moral support from the others...and what gets shared may be kind of personal. Screenshotting and posting on other forums is prohibited and will result in your immediate removal with no refund, and other possible consequences. We have a zero tolerance policy on this.
2. Include a luxurious picture with your post. Let's keep our club a beautiful place with gorgeous Discussion Lounges (currently called “Topics”....but we're changing the name as soon as we're able!). One of the ways we improve our environments is to surround ourselves with beauty and luxury. And when we're online in our club, that would be right here. So please use only elegant and aspirational photos! We do reserve the right to swap out your post’s photo if it’s not aligned with the club’s luxury mandate.
3a. No promotional activity, links to promotional activity, links to other coaches in Anna's niche, fundraising posts etc. without prior approval. This is not the place to try and solicit other ladies to join your MLM downline, promote your business, promote your friends' businesses, phish for customers/clients, recruit, or in any way leverage this group’s membership roster to specifically improve your own ventures. This includes asking other members to split the cost of any educational material or courses.
3b. NO recruiting, selling, promotional activity or "bait and switch" tactics during Events. One of the privileges of being an A-Lister is the ability to organize and run your own real-life and Zoom events with other A-Listers, to socialize and network with each other in-person or virtually. These events are for socializing and networking, and no selling, recruiting, or promoting of anything is permitted.
Organizing Events is only allowed for SOCIALIZING and to connect with other women. Events are not meant to create educational meetings, where you teach/coach others on any given subject, no selling, offer services etc in the events. If your Event is deemed to be not strictly for socializing, it will be removed.
If any member attempts to create an Event for any prohibited reason and/or switch it to something prohibited, they will be removed from the group with no refund. Please always report any member who does this at an event, or is DMing you to solicit or recruit you for any reason.
3c. If you do have something really high-end or luxury-aspirational that the other ladies might like to hear about, reach out to a Host or Moderator and let's talk about it. We may even feature you in an interview, an article, or ask you to participate or in (or host!) a Zoom party! And feel free to share your specialized knowledge with the other ladies in the club--that's what we're all here for!
4. You don't have to use your real name if you don't want to. This isn't Facebook, and no one can try and cause trouble for you for using an alias. You may only choose to reveal who you are to the ladies whom you reach out to directly. Or you may be fine with your real name being beside any comment or post that you make. Screenshots may happen, (even though we expressly don't allow it), and while we have made our club as safe and secure as possible, it's still online. Only you can judge what's best for you!
5. This is a socializing and networking club for making real connections. The club is an entirely different experience than one of Anna's courses, where the students have their own Study Groups to learn and help each other with their coursework on a separate platform. This club is not intended as a discussion area of Anna's courses, it's to meet up with like-minded ladies! (You'll get plenty of advance notice as a club member when we do release courses).
6. While we are supportive, this club is not a substitute for medical or legal intervention, or emotional therapy. We get it--sometimes, you feel so comfortable in a group that it feels like a substitute for professional help. And for small things, it kind of can be :) However, you should never put yourself in dire situations through avoidance of professional help, interventions, or therapy. We want to see you living a wonderful life!
7. We reserve the right to remove anyone breaking the rules at anytime and without refund. We are committed to making The A-List a truly exceptional social experience for our members. We also know that a few bad apples can spoil it for the rest. Therefore, we are committed to removing members that try to create unpleasant drama within club or your DMs (please remember to report if you get DMs trying to bully or solicit you). This is a club for likeminded ladies, not scrappy or condescending mean girls or trolls.
8. We can make any changes to anything at any time. We are building this club together, and we might find that some formats, events, and content are just working better than others! Or maybe something occurred that needs a new rule to go smoothly. If so, we have the right to change things up and add or remove previous things so that this club remains a great place for our members.
