Hello and welcome to the Photoflex Lighting Community! Here at Photoflex our goal is to further the free flow of information for lighting and photography. We are firm in our belief that knowledge should be free.
But to keep the peace, here at the Photoflex Community we have have a few rules:
1) This is a hate free environment. No obscene language, racial slurs, denigration of any type, or vulgar attacks on any member. We’re all for free speech, but we aren’t sailors either. If you have something to say, keep it clean.
2) We are all Photoflex fans, but let’s keep things open. Don’t verbally attack or denigrate any company, regardless of industry. Mac or PC? At the Photoflex Community we can all get along.
3) Don’t spam! Spam includes nonsensical posts, double posting, and all other mindless gibber jabber. Have a specific question on whether or not something will be considered spam? Just ask.

5) Do not disrespect moderators. Be respectful in both the forums or any other communications.
6) Do not register more than one account. One username and one user per human being.
7) No blatant, unwarranted, unsolicited advertising for any company or organization. We all love certain products and that’s fine, it’s just not acceptable to spam ads.
