No announcement yet. Rules of Engagement


Welcome home to

It is our pleasure to bring to you a variety of topics, threads, poetry, or just plain old positive conversation.

As in every house or home there are rules.

At AFRAKA. com we have created rules as well; to keep the positive juices flowing within this site.

These rules apply to all who enter.

Please read carefully with an open mind and understanding.

Rule # 1 is RESPECT. Respect is a willingness to show consideration or appreciation. Respect should be shown for yourself as well as other members of this beautiful family.

Everyone has a right to voice their opinion respectfully. We don't have to agree with everything anyone says, but we have to respect them.

If anyone feels they are disrespected, please bring this to the attention of an administrator and the issue will be dealt with accordingly.

This may result in a member being banned from

Rule # 2 is not to add anyone's property to this site without getting permission from the person or persons' in writing.

If you have not gotten permission from the original source as to post their poetry, news, music, articles, stories or any other material please site the person or persons' name at the top of the page as to give them credit.

We do not want to plagiarize anyone's work.

If there are any other questions about copyright infringement which is basically stealing someone's work and putting your name on it, please go to for more information and clarification.

Rule #3 is also associated with Rule #2.

This means you may not use without permission any member of property.

We must remember to respect everyone's property as they also apply to copyrighted information

. Please don't jeopardize your membership as it relates to this rule.

If you are given permission from your sister or brother to use their property then all is well.

Rule #4 is When forums are posted, please do not add any other discussion threads, advertisements, threads or polls. For example, the poetry forum is only for poetry.

In addition, please do not post the same thing more than once.

Rule #5 is directed to V.I.P. members.

As a V.I.P. member, provides a forum where you may post a thread and include a link to advertise your site.

You may also add your signature. V.I.P. members cannot use their advertising link outside of the V.I.P. forum. Using a link more than once causes spams from links you may advertise.

We invite and encourage you to become a V.I.P. Member.

Rule #6 While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, profanity (or attempts to bypass profanity filters), insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts.

Rule #7 Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or such. is a place for peace, kindness, conscienceness.

We don't intend on censoring messages based on opinion, however we will enforce all rules outlined here and on the forum.


It is our prayer that we all exercise basic common sense and goodwill.

We pray that your journey with us will be a long and fulfilling one, as to the will of the Creator.

Again welcome home to!

If there is anything that is not clear to you in these rules please let us know and we will try to explain better.

Ase! Brother Tariq
