If we can direct your attention to the front of the blog, we’d like to present our official community guidelines for the enjoyment and general use of Makr.io:
Have Fun! - Seriously, have fun. Be goofy and laugh often.
Help Newbies! - They are your new friends. Help them learn the site and give them a little room to grow. We’ve all be there!
Remix not Repost! - Keep in mind, your Makr profile is not a blog of your favorite posts. Even though it is meant to be flattering, this action translates as your own remix and can be very upsetting to the Makr who originally remixed it.
Be Nice! - We carefully decide what is in violation of this guideline on a post by post basis: Racism, Sexism, Queerphobia, Porn, Trolls and Personal attacks don’t belong on Makr.io in the form of remixes or comments. Advice: If you think it can be taken the wrong way, think twice before posting.
Actor and comedian Ricky Trammel from The Salton Sea, Stick It, Head Case, and the hilarious movie by John Gries: Pickin’ and Grinnin’ (to name a few) hosts a night of Birthday Month Debauchery. Saying goodbye to his thirties all month long… Rama. Lama. Dingdong.
Let’s help him usher in the big 4.0. Makr style!!
Check out his tag:
