Policies and Regulations for members using the TriState Mixer (TSM) website that will be used to govern the actions and conduct of all members and their postings. This will include the type of content, language, solicitations, links, offers and requests.
We urge you to familiarize yourselves with these policies and regulations in order to keep the TSM site operating within the guidelines that were intended. The TSM site is monitored 24x7.

1. You must register and become a member (free) on the TSM site with complete profile properly filled out (full first and last name), contact information, current photo (no words including, logos, company name, advertisement, direct/indirect wording of area of specialties or URL) and all fields correctly filled out as per policies or your account will be deleted without further dialogue.
2. Suspended members can only be reinstated with the approval of the TSM review committee. A repeat offenders account will be deleted and all associated friends/content will be permanently removed.
3. Members may post requests for a specific real estate opportunity that they have under their control only. A member at minimum must state that they have a specific house they would like to buy/sell with unit, bedroom, bath count along with address (because those are the basic questions needed to run comps on the property)/need funding for (with address) in a specific town. Posts and post titles that are too general/all bold/IN ALL CAPS/not specific (contain "cash only/cash buyer(s) needed)" or that do not comply with the specified topic area will be moved or deleted. The required details must be included in the subject and body of the post or it will be deleted.
3a. Members may NOT post general requests like looking for buyers, my buyers are looking to buy in these (single/multiple) towns/counties/states, general JV/partners, looking for bird-dogs or to be one, I buy houses or anything along similar lines or it will be deleted. Do this at our live networking events. If these posts are detected, all posts will be removed due to "anti-list building buyers/sellers" policy.
3b. Members may NOT post to inform/list/advertise/promote direct or indirectly other events (showings/auctions/etc.), services, websites/weblinks, companies, MLM’s, or other non-vendor members services nor links (including partial website names) to any of those mentioned or referencing to one's profile for website/links (ex. Twitter/Facebook name/links). Approved vendors pay for the right to advertise/post links.
3c. Members may NOT use the Member List NOR their Friends List for Email Blasts promoting anything other than Real Estate Opportunities (ie products, mlm, classes, networking events, mentorships).
