Forum Rules

Recommended Posts

The Vision

We want the forums to become a place for mature discussion. Discussing topics from the courses and other topics relating to modern applied psychology. There is a multitude of practises and techniques available to practitioners and if you have experience in them we welcome you talking about them on the forum. We love inspiring, informative written and video content!

So be creative, be inspiring, be supportive but above all be an Achologist.

Self Promotion

No self-promotional posts.  Users found to be self-promoting in the forums will receive warning points. This community is a place of learning, understanding and growing. This includes using this community to reach out to members one-on-one. There will be a place for experienced Achologists to connect with paying clients in the future. This is currently in development but first, we need experience Achologists.

The only forum that allows links to your content, such as video, Facebook pages or blogs is Let's Talk Business.  Linking is allowed there in order to get feedback or help other Achologists learn and grow.   Please read the rules thread there before posting any links.

External linking, spam and advertising

Spam is not tolerated. All automated messages and advertisements will be deleted. Only external links that compliment context and add value will be allowed. Warning points will be given for spamming and inappropriate external linking.

Hidden posts

Any post containing an image, video or link to a site outside of Achology will require moderator approval. If your post or reply shows as hidden it is awaiting approval.  Moderators will approve these posts as quickly as possible.

Posting in the forum

Community members should search the forum for answers before posting their question. The search box can be found at the top right of the forum.

Refrain from posting the same question in multiple forums.

Please find the appropriate forum to post in, posting in the incorrect forum creates additional workload for moderators. Messages posted in the wrong topic area will be removed and placed in the correct forum by moderators. If you feel there is no suitable place for your post please put it in “the Lounge” which is for more general discussions. We are open to suggestions for new forums for specific topics.

Language, respect and tone

We have high standards! We’re trying to foster great conversation and we will remove comments that harm that endeavour.

Respect other users. No abusing fellow forum members. Abusive posts will be deleted and members will be given warning points. People who continue to post inflammatory, abusive comments will have any memberships cancelled, banning and a refund will be issued. 

No threats or harassment of other users will be tolerated. Any instance of threatening or harassing behaviour is grounds for immediate deletion from the forums.

No profanity or pornography is allowed and will result in warning points. Posts containing adult material will be deleted. 

Be kind, respectful and non-judgemental of others. This is a place of learning, not criticising. Use your common sense here and think before you comment.

Give genuine feedback to others. We are here to help each other grow.

Topic Bumping

'Bumping' describes commenting on your own forum topic so that a particular topic is returned to the top in the list of forum topics. Some users may even post a message with only the word "bump" to indicate they are posting only to bump the thread to the top of the list where more users will see it. This is unacceptable in Achology and users found doing this will receive warning points. 

Illegal content

No posting of copyrighted materials or other illegal content is allowed. Any posts containing illegal content or copyrighted materials will be deleted. Warning points will be issued for Achologists who are found to be doing this. 


All profile/avatar images should be 150 x 150 pixels or smaller. When posting images in topics please make sure they are web optimised and no larger than 1000px wide. Over-sized images will be removed.

Reporting topics/posts which break the rules

There is a report button located at the top right side on each post in a topic, simply click this, provide a reason and the forum moderators will be alerted.

Warning Points

Warning points will be given for any of the mentioned offences. If 3 points are given in a 30 day period,  this will result in an immediate membership cancellation, banning and a refund will be issued.  However, it is at our discretion that a membership ban may be given on the first offence.
