We see B4B Planet Community as a place to discuss building communities, B4B Planet itself as software, a place for collaboration between its members where they can help each other in various ways, whether by sharing helpful materials or advice. Going off-topic is fine once in a while and in a proper After Hours group as to not ‘spam’ the community and keep the focus.
B4B Planet Community was established to serve few purposes. Firstly, it’s a showcase of our software which you can see in the real world and outside of a demo. Secondly, it’s meant as a safe and focused space for our clients who want to get to know more about our software, building communities and keep in touch with B4B Planet team. Thirdly, it serves as an auxiliary platform for our clients to get support beyond our ticketing system.
We believe in focus. That’s one of main reasons we created B4B Planet and keep making it better every day. Focus is keeping our community clean and clear of unwanted random content so that its members can get easier to the information they look for without being distracted.
Feel free to share any and all questions regarding B4B Planet. How it works and all. Report problems, if you have any. Report bugs, so our developers can squish them and ensure they don’t appear in the future.
We encourage you to share information about the community that you are building. Share the link to it. Shed some lite on what’s its focus. Who should join it. Add some great screenshots. We have a dedicated Showcase group for that. It’s perfectly fine to let others know about it. People can give you advice, some criticism. It’s perfectly fine if, it’s not perfect. Nothing got built in a day. Definitely not social networks.
Inappropriate, illegal content and spam will not be tolerated and will result in its removal as well as banning your account followed by sending information to the proper authorities dependent on your country of residence.
Remember that respect is something that goes both ways. It needs to be given to be received. Respect your fellow community members as well as B4B Planet staff. Reports of abuse will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
Sharing what in your opinion is a useful service, theme, plugin is great. However, they mustn’t be designed as purely promotional posts designed to lure members to buy whatever it is you’re trying to sell. We also do not allow sharing links that lead directly or indirectly to B4B Planet competitors, though.
Every member can see an option to report posts and comments. If you feel some content is inappropriate, please do report it so B4B Planet staff can handle it.
We believe these guidelines are fair and easy to follow. Anyone with common sense and human decency shouldn’t have any issues following them. If you don’t follow guidelines, perhaps you should find a different community to be a part of. Or build one yourself. Make no mistake, this is our community and we will enforce these guidelines to the best of our abilities to have a well-prospering and focused space for likeminded people who are passionate about B4B Planet and building communities.

Membership of B4B PLANET and membership of a B4B PLANET Group are governed by these general terms and conditions, the B4B PLANET Code of Honour as well as other rules and directives established in writing:

2. Members may represent only one specialist field and, in any event, not a secondary activity.
3. Natural persons may only be part of one B4B PLANET Group at a time.
4. At the same time as submitting the application for admission, a one-time registration fee and an annual fee for participation in the B4B PLANET marketing program must be paid in advance.
5. The annual fee does not include special sponsorship costs that the member can request by paying an extra fee.
6. Admission to a Group takes place only on condition that the fees referred to in point 4 above have been paid and that the application has been accepted by B4B Planet.

In case of non-consent to admission by B4B Planet, the fees already paid will be refunded.
7. Following admission to a Group, the fees already paid will not be refunded, even if: the commercial expectations related to the status of member are not met, the member has been excluded for violation of these conditions.
