We want to keep our community as welcoming as possible to everyone. It should be a space to connect, share and discover with like-minded music lovers from around the world. Please help us keep it that way. 

Below are some house rules that we would love you to read through quickly before getting started.

  • This is a private space. You will need to be a member to participate. If you are not a member then you'll need to join here.
  • Please complete your member profile, so the community knows who's posting.
  • Wax Poetics moderates across the board, but we are not responsible for the messages posted. We do not vouch for, or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of posts, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. 
  • Any racist, sexist, discriminatory, hateful, violent, pornographic or generally untoward posts will be removed and your membership will be terminated. 
  • No one likes a troll. Don't be one.
  • We moderate this space as much as we can. When we decide to remove a post please don’t expect, or wait for, an explanation.
  • We are a small team and this is a new project for us. Please help us moderate the space and keep it as the open, welcoming, music space we all want it to be. If you notice anyone or anything you think goes against our community, please flag this with us.
  • If ever you experience anything here that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, please reach out to us at
  • We want to support the music community. Please reference the identity of the music (artist / title) or other artistic works that you’re sharing.
  • Please play nice. 
  • We have a huge range of members, writers, artists, DJs, producers, and more here. While debate and discussion is actively encouraged, let's not make it personal. You could be talking to them.
  • Posting links or information on leaked music or other material, or illegal file-sharing of copyrighted material is prohibited.
  • You are welcome and encouraged to share your own music discoveries, playlists, mixes, events etc. but try to refrain from plain advertising and posting spam.
Finally–and most importantly–please enjoy it. We're all here as we have a shared passion for music. Let's make this place great together! 

We hope you love it.
