Super passionate about something but can't quite find the right place to talk about it? Want to find a way of meeting more people with common interests? We've got just the thing! Introducing Tribes; an exciting new community upgrade, making it easier than ever to talk about the things you're really passionate about and to move the conversation away from the main public forums. Tribes are built around a common interest and have their own separate discussion forums. Some Tribes are public, allowing all members to participate without joining, whereas others are private, meaning that you need to join the Tribe before you're able to join the conversation. Once you've joined a Tribe, you'll be added to the member list and the Tribes you join will then be added to your profile.
Please remember that all content posted to Tribes is still subject to moderation and our Community Guidelines.
Why Can't I View a Tribe?
Some Tribes are invite only, meaning that whilst you may be able to view them on the Tribe Directory, you will need to receive an invitation from a moderator of the Tribe in order to access it. Other Tribes are members only, meaning that you'll simply need to join the tribe before viewing the content.
Creating Your Own Tribe
Can't find the Tribe you're looking for? Why not create your own? As a member, you are able to create your own Tribe and invite others to join. As the Tribe owner, you'll have full moderation rights within your Tribe, and you'll also be able to invite other moderators to join your ranks. You can create and upload your own Tribe icons and cover photos and configure your own forums.
Please note that we cannot accept Tribes that are in violation of our Community Guidelines. We additionally are unable to accept Tribes that are focused on, or could be used to promote either political or religious beliefs.
Once your Tribe has been created, it will then need to be approved by Ditch the Label before it is published. This may take anything from a few minutes to a few hours. Once approved, you'll then be able to add more customisations, set up your private forums and invite other members to join.
