Certain information is mandatory – such as your name, valid email address, username and password. Anonymous registrations will not be accepted. All registration accounts must include your name and a genuine email address. Do not represent yourself as another person. You may not register on the site more than once.

All submissions for artist/organisation profiles and events or opportunities to the Arts Directory are subject to Mid and West Wales Arts & Education Network approval. According to our Welsh Language Scheme it is expected that all content is submitted bilingually. However, in the event that this is not possible then content will be judged on its merit. The Mid and West Wales Arts & Education Network cannot guarantee that links to external websites will be bilingual.

By submitting content to the Mid and West Wales Arts & Education Network website you agree to abide by the following rules. These rules are designed to ensure that contributors and users feel comfortable and equal in the online environment.

  1. Be respectful of others. Debates may be lively but taking part should be a positive experience for all participants. Contributions should be civil and tasteful, and must not be malicious or designed to offend. No reference should be made to the personality of other contributors or users nor should attacks be made on an individual’s character.
  2. Stay on-topic. Your comment should be within scope of the topic under discussion. Please don’t post messages that are unrelated to the forum discussion you are contributing to.
  3. Don’t incite hatred on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality, sexuality or other personal characteristic. Don’t swear, use hate-speech or make obscene or vulgar comments.
  4. Don’t break the law. This includes libel, condoning illegal activity and contempt of court (comments which might affect the outcome of an approaching court case). You should remember that you are legally responsible for what you write.
  5. Don’t post personal information – addresses, phone numbers, email addresses or other online contact details either relating to yourself or other individuals.
  6. Don’t engage in “spamming”. Please don’t add the same comment to more than one forum, or more than once to the same discussion.
  7. Don’t advertise. You can mention relevant products and services as long as they support your comment. No advertising or promotion is allowed except where it is for an event, publication or similar item that has direct relevance to the subject of discussion. Information about locating and sharing knowledge and expertise is welcomed, but within the specific discussion provided.
  8. All links submitted must be appropriate for a general audience, and must not link the site to material that is obscene, defamatory or inciting to hatred or violence.
  9. Don’t impersonate or falsely claim to represent a person or organisation. Please don’t mislead other users by abusing our registration procedure.
  10. Don’t post in a language other than English or Welsh.
  11. Avoid being party political – Mid and West Wales Arts & Education Network is a Government sponsored body and comments used for party political purposes cannot be published for propriety reasons.
  12. Be concise – other users are more likely to read your contribution if it is concise, and for this reason we don’t generally publish articles longer than 400-500 words.
  13. We encourage open, lively debate but the decision to publish content received via this site remains at the Mid and West Wales Arts & Education Network discretion. Content that violates any of the above rules will not be published.

If a participant breaks the above rules, their user account will be suspended and all their comments revoked.
