[Sticky] FORUM RULES (Must Read Before Creating Topics/Threads or Posts)
Welcome to the Manifestation Machine Forum! Thank you so much for deciding to be a member of our community of like-minded, success-oriented individuals!
If you haven't already, do make sure to:
- Like us on Facebook
- Follow us on Twitter
- Subscribe to us on YouTube
- Share this site and its content using the Social Share links on the right side of the site
- Sign up for our Manifestation Machine Monthly mailing list by entering your email on the right side of this site on PC's or below post/forum content on mobile devices.
Before you create any topics (threads) or posts in this forum, it is essential that you read the following Forum Rules, otherwise you risk being suspended or banned from this forum:
No selling, promotion, affiliate links, etc.: If you want to sell something or promote your own products on this site, you can contact us and we can discuss paid advertising, or you can start your own blog/website/forum (which you should probably have already done if you're in the business of selling). If you are interested in advertising with us, we can offer you a great deal for 250 pixel x 250 pixel ad spots on the right side of this site, the 970 pixel x 90 pixel banner ad spot at the bottom of this site, or customized advertising locations within blog posts. Contact us for a quote today.
No solicitation for investors and/or money: This is a personal growth & development forum, not an "angel investor" network or episode of Shark Tank. There are plenty of banks, credit unions, and venture capitalists out there that would probably love to help you gain access to funding, if that is what you need. May we suggest you Google search for some of them?
No gratuitous self-promotion: A casual mention of your Twitter handle is okay, but we don't want to see links to all of your Social Media profiles and/or websites/blogs in any posts unless they are entirely relevant to the topic(s) being discussed and you are actually ADDING VALUE to your fellow Mechanics' lives by sharing them.
No trolling: We are 100% real with you in our content on this site, and we expect you to be the same in your dealings in this forum. Do not create "bait threads" or "troll posts", wherein you are simply trying to "get a rise" out of others or provoke them to anger, but rather ADD VALUE with what you post. If you'd rather waste your fellow Mechanics' time and/or try to hurt other people to make yourself feel better than provide REAL VALUE to the lives of others, then you are clearly at the wrong forum/website.
No blatant disrespect: This means no flaming, name-calling, condescending, etc. We are all adults here (or at least I hope we are, because this site is not for children, really), and so while brutal honesty, bluntness, and tough love are certainly appreciated, immature/childish behavior and emotional instability are not. My definition of wisdom is "knowing that you don't know anything", so please be wise, and don't come into this forum thinking you know it all (because you don't) or that you're better than others (because you're not).
No religious/political debate: It is okay to talk about spiritual/religious beliefs and politics, insofar as the discussion about them remains success-oriented (or, in other words, is geared towards encouraging personal growth & development), but we will not allow legitimate topics to be derailed by religious and political back-and-forth's (especially if any of the other forum rules above are violated in the process).
WE OPERATE BY A LOOSE "THREE STRIKES" RULE HERE:
- IF YOU VIOLATE THE RULES ONCE, YOU'LL GET A WRITTEN WARNING.
- IF YOU VIOLATE THEM A SECOND TIME, YOU'LL BE SUSPENDED/DENIED ACCESS TO THE FORUM FOR TWO WEEKS.
- IF YOU VIOLATE THEM A THIRD (AND FINAL) TIME, YOUR I.P. ADDRESS WILL BE BANNED FROM THIS FORUM (AND POSSIBLY THE ENTIRE WEBSITE).
The above being said, I (Cory Groshek), the founder/CEO of Manifestation Machine, am a forgiving man, and so if you find yourself warned, suspended, or banned from the forum or website and would like to formally apologize for your poor/unacceptable behavior that caused you to be warned/suspended/banned, you may always contact us and beg for forgiveness. Of course, just because I forgive (in some cases) does not mean I forget, and so if I do extend forgiveness to you, I suggest you show your appreciation by not violating the forum rules again.
If for any reason you feel that these rules are unclear, you may contact us with any questions/concerns you may have (and we suggest you do this BEFORE you start creating topics or posting).
If for any reason you feel that these rules are unacceptable, you are well within your rights to cease visiting this forum and ManifestationMachine.com as a whole any time you like.
In conclusion, we hope you enjoy the community of like-minded, success-oriented individuals we've built here, and that you get all of your questions answered, build some amazing relationships, learn something new every day, and find massive success in all that you do. We are thrilled to have the honor to play a part in you reaching your full potential.
