Create Your Own Marching Shows

Terms of Service

By accessing this site, you agree to follow these terms.


Overview

This is a privately run website, developed and run by Joe Lesko in his spare time, and moderated by a small group of volunteer adults (the Captains), many of whom are educators.

Understand that we run a tighter ship than most websites, and have been running it this way since 2007. If you are a member of other communities, please don't assume that what is okay elsewhere is okay here.

While we can't track everything that is posted here, we do our best to keep MML a positive, high-quality site, where everyone can be creative and generally share their passion for the marching arts.


Warnings / Bans

There are an infinite number of ways for a person to be disruptive (even unintentionally), so there is no definitive list of rules. Every situation is a bit different, so we do what we think is right. That might not seem fair, but it's an appropriate level of involvement for a marching band website.

In general, we try to give everyone a fair warning (via profile Wall), but realize that we are decisive about banning accounts if it's clear that someone is no longer a good fit for the community.

Bans are permanent. So if you get a warning, take it seriously if you want to keep using the site. Take a deep breath and relax. Most banned members had a fair shot at turning things around, but instead made things worse by getting angry about it.


For Teen Members

We expect you to act mature and put your best foot forward.

We don't waste time with punishments or ultimatums. If you are a teenager, realize that, unlike your parents and teachers in real life, we don't have to put up with anything we don't want to. There's no safety net here, so play it safe.

Keep the drama on the field, and out of the community. The best way to do that is to stay out of cliques that gossip about other members.

Also, there might be a time when the novelty of MML wears off for you. It just means you're ready to move on or take a break from it. It's okay to move on. MML is not obligated to keep you entertained for your entire life. Just don't be that guy that hangs around talking about how everything sucks now, and it was way better when you first joined.


For Adult Members

While there are many other adults here, most of our members are in high school or college. Please set a good example.

Also, it's important to keep your boundaries. For everyone's protection, it's best to avoid socializing with minors outside of MML, at sites like Facebook. Rule of thumb: You can be friendly, but not Friends.
