Specific YNM Forum Guidelines

The society strives to create opportunities for professional dialogue and community development. All members of the INS may visit the Young Neuromodulators Forum, although discussion is limited to non-industry members. Posts are not pre-screened; moderators from the committee will monitor posts after the fact for adherence to community forum guidelines, summarized below.

New participants are kindly encouraged to please mention both their country and specialty. Also, please keep your profile updated with full name and work location, so fellow participants know who and where you are. Logged-in members may directly visit the forum at: YNM Forum.

Guiding Principles for the Online Community
Due to the standards of care placed on medical professionals, please remember that collegial discussions here are informal exchanges, and do not constitute medical advice or professional recommendations. In addition, we ask that posts do not include commercial messaging.

Each member is obligated to protect confidentiality, and advised to not repeat conversations in order to ensure that privacy and confidentiality are maintained.

Although participants may post without having comments pre-screened, moderators reserve the right to delete content deemed inappropriate. A participant will first be privately notified. Access to an INS forum is only open to current INS members. Participation can be blocked by an administrator due to repeat violation of these guidelines despite private warnings. Active participation in discussion on the Young Neuromodulator forum is not open to industry personnel.

1. Be Respectful
To ensure a spirit of cooperatively exchanging expertise, inflammatory remarks will not be tolerated. You may openly disagree, but state your case in an atmosphere of mutual respect, in which everyone has a right to a particular view about the topic of conversation. Please keep remarks about the topic at hand, avoid personal attacks. Be the first to correct your own mistakes, as this can restore trust.

2. Maintain a Dignified Tone
Derogatory or offensive language or other content that a reasonable person would find objectionable is not allowed.

3. Don't Engage in Marketing
Do not use the group to make advertisements, solicitations or promotions. If appropriate, participants are encouraged to disclose potentially pertinent conflicts of interest -- real or perceived -- when making comments.

4. Use Your Own Words
The distribution of intellectual property not belonging to you is not permitted. Speak your mind honestly, but use your own words to do so.

5. Abide by All Standards of Reasonable Conduct
