      TPC Code of Conduct

      Before you got nuts posting up a storm, we need to lay down a few ground rules. Breaking these rules can result in a temporary or permanent ban from the forums depending on severity.

      Be Kind

      Remember that community members are people. They have opinions, ideas, and feelings. While you may disagree with someone, this is NOT the place to post remarks about them, their work, their beliefs, their opinions, or their sexual orientation in any way that is defaming, insulting, slanderous, vulgar, or obscene. Comments or threads containing such material will be deleted immediately.
      Wrestling with the value of our work is universal. Chances are, a great deal of time and energy has gone into any artwork that you’re seeing on this site. That time and energy is worth your respect.

      If you are asked by a community member to critique their work, be sure it’s clear that you are on their side.

      Be Appropriate

      56% of divorce cases involve one party having an obsessive interest in pornographic material (source).
      Third Person Creative exists to destroy statistics like these, not endorse them.

      Pornography – sexually explicit videos, photographs, writings, or the like, whose purpose is to elicit sexual arousal. (

      Any comment, post, or artwork that is pornographic in nature or contains nudity (complete or partial) will be deleted immediately.

      Any comment, post, or artwork that contains extreme violence, or gore will be deleted immediately.

      Any comment, post, or artwork that makes threats towards another community member will be deleted immediately.

      Be Honest

      When Pixar was drafting the screenplay for Toy Story they went through 26 drafts before they landed on what audiences saw in the theater. The Pixar writers saw every critique in the writing process as moving them one step closer to what the story was supposed to ultimately become.

      If you have permission to critique, and you see something that could be improved, then be honest!

      Speaking up leaves it up to the artist to make a change, but staying silent prevents them from ever seeing your perspective. Speak up!
