Please refrain from posting threads with the intention of airing complaints about APA or other members. This includes posting a thread about an unspecified member. These threads rarely serve any constructive purpose, and the attention they receive often detracts from the original intention. "Goodbye" threads that announce a decision to leave the forums due to dissatisfaction fall into this category.

Complaint Procedures:
APA is genuinely interested in hearing complaints or concerns, and welcomes any pm's or emails to that effect.

Any threads like the above may be removed at the moderator's/admin's discretion and the author contacted with an explanation and further instructions.

Member Complaints
1. If you have a problem with a member your first course of action is try and address it with them through "private messags" PMs.

2. If a member remains abusive or you are not comfortable with the responses with that member, please address your concerns through a "private message" to a moderator. The final step should be through a "private message" to APA.

Moderator Complaints
1. If you have a problem with a moderator your first course of action is try and address it with them through "private messags" PMs.

2. If a moderator remains abusive or you are not comfortable with the responses with that moderator, please address your concerns through a "private message" to the APA President.

If you will no longer be able to be contacted via the forums and are simply trying to stay in touch with other members, please pm or email your message.

If you wish to revoke your membership with the APA Forums, please contact Admin via pm or email and we will promptly address your needs.

Thank you for your consideration.
