6. Contact Us
The Totally Tara administrators and moderators put forth their best effort to stay alerted to potential problems and we encourage the members of this message board to help us in this area. If you see content that you feel is questionable, please contact us immediately. If you have a problem with someone on the board/or posting related to you, please email us directly. All such posts will be dealt with in a timely manner.
This message board and its forums are devoted to a singular central topic - TARA LIPINSKI. As such, there is no forum here devoted to Eligible Skating.I just can't stand "so and so" - "such and such" is way better than him/her!!
While we all respect and admire Tara, and enjoy saying nice things about Tara, the above does not qualify! Tara is an exceedingly POSITIVE person, and she would like her message forums to reflect that. So, if you have something nasty, harsh, or exceedingly negative to say, say it elsewhere. Saying it here will get your post removed and your account warned, then terminated. Tara wants a fun, friendly and positive atmosphere on her message board, and our job is to protect it. Lively debate is one thing, name calling and personal attacks are another. This standard may make this board more restrictive than others, but that's the way it is. As mentioned above, there are plenty of alternatives elsewhere on the internet.Why do I have to give you my email address to use the forum?
We do require an email address to register simply because this allows us to filter out a lot of trolls and troublemakers who enjoy starting trouble behind a cloak of anonymity. We will never publish or sell your email address to anyone, ever.Does Tara read these messages? Does she post messages here herself?
Yes and Yes. Tara's username here is TaraKLipinski - any post you see with TaraKLipinski as the author IS a post from Tara herself! Because it would not be humanly possible to reply to EVERY message, Tara generally does not reply to individual messages, although she does read them.Who do I contact if I have a problem on the board?
You can contact any one of three people that administer and moderate the boards:Katie, Admin firstname.lastname@example.org
Swathi, Admin email@example.com
