Member Agreement for itijik.com and the itijik Pro Club


Forum Rules

No abusive speech or behaviour towards other members or the squad partners. That’s a quick way to miss out on opportunities just by nature and will lead to suspension or ban from the club and forums. Squad partner’s and itijik will use their own discretion to come to these decisions.

This being said, we don’t expect to have many big issues here. Maintaining a thicker skin to be able to operate at a higher level will serve yourself and everyone around you. This is crucial especially with creative critique and opinions. Critique and opinions is a benefit of having a squad that you have an understanding of good intentions with. Remember we’re here to make great music and build our squad up. The stronger the squad, the more success for everyone involved.
