ACO is an expansive, worldwide community of truthseekers who support spiritual science metaphysicians and philosophers as creationists interested in futurology and science. We support consciousness, and the soul as a major part of life as a humanoid being. ACO Club, American Communications Online, ACO Association, and Allied Command Organization are all part of our alliance in promoting space advocacy in our arts and science peer review journals and our trade associations.
ACO Club is for members only. ACO Association is our voting members who share in co-creations as supporters of visual and performing arts, and integrative medicine practitioners. We share as journalists, writers, authors, engineers, scientists, and promote the STEM Program in our arts and science journals. We share American Communications Online and the TJ Morris Agency for our administration online for our websites, and our social media presence.
Some are interested in the high strangeness of the unexplained nature of what we are all aware of as the truth of our beginning or the origin of everything. Some call this as one beginning and God.
Artists of visual and performing artists, authors, practitioners, speakers, and teachers are chosen to become members in our ACO Club. Most must be known for some purpose in their own life. We share the “YOU” in you of “Philosophy of Learning about Spirit Essence” and the meaning of life.
We come from all walks of life and agree that life can be situational based on one’s own point of origin. We ascribe to the highest standards with morals and integrity while we embark on conversations together in broadcast media. We share in visual and performing arts as advocates and sometime sponsor art shows in events.
We support every age, and every nationality who create works spanning every medium, every subject and every level of talent and skill. However, since we prefer to work with those who are of legal adult age in the cyberspace normal, we ask that our members be at least 18 years of age and graduated high school or have a General Equivalency Diploma. This is to satisfy the normal requirement to have an educational normal way of being in this world. Then we can finish being involved in the social involvement of getting priorities straight on our own soul purpose of life while we have a physical body. We will assist anyone in obtaining their level of education as an adult in our adults continuing education programs in all states and help with educational information for all our members.
As the guiding force of this large and vibrant community we have two primary and often conflicting goals in the service we provide for you, the members of the community; the first being to ensure that members are free to express themselves within reason with as few restrictions as possible while nurturing an environment of creativity, learning, and talent and the second is to protect the members of the community, to the best of our abilities, from infringement of copyright, discrimination, harassment, and prejudice.
All members of the ACO community are expected to be familiar with these rules of etiquette and they will be enforced evenly and without bias in every situation which is brought to the attention of the administration regardless of the membership status of the user in question.

Quality and Placement
It is our policy to welcome artists and authors of all levels from amateur to professional and to that end we do not attach any minimum standards of quality to deviations submitted by our membership; all manner of artworks is welcome providing they meet with our etiquette and copyright policies. While we do not impose quality standards, we do ask that you practice self-moderation in what you choose to submit and that you submit your works into the most appropriate gallery. While we encourage the submission of only your very best works, we have provided an area for those submissions which may fall short of that ‘top quality’ mark; this is your “Scrapbook” gallery and we highly encourage its use.
We share an archive for members only who pay a minimum of $5.00 a month to participate in updating their own page of art or archiving in our ACO CLUB/ACO American Communications Online/ACO Association/Allied Command Organization.
Our community volunteers may elect to move one or more of your ACO Club/ ACO Association/ ACO American Communications Online/ Allied Command Organizations Art creations from the Gallery categories into a different, more appropriate, section or into the Scrapbook category; we ask that you accept this decision gracefully and with a mature attitude. If you desire a full explanation for this action, or if you feel the administrative action was performed in error, you should submit an inquiry to the official ACO Art Helpdesk and include a link to the relevant issue at hand. Please do not bring these issues into the Forums, user pages, or other areas of our ACO American Communications Online/ ACO Association/ Allied Command Organization domains or websites.
Prohibited commentary is typically considered to be inherently disrespectful, aggressive, or otherwise abusive.
We must insist that you refrain from comments which are racist, bigoted, or which otherwise offensively target a political concern, a person’s philosophy or religion.
In addition, we ask that our members avoid making offensive remarks based on gender or sexual preference and that you do not make any remark, comment or critique which is intended to be a direct insult to an individual, group, or genre of artwork. Hate propaganda is met with zero tolerance. Comments which are overly aggressive, personally insulting or needlessly abusive are also prohibited.
If you feel that you have been the target of harassment, personal insults or other severe behavior please notify the staff by using the official ACO Club/ ACO Association/American Communications Online/ Allied Command Organization or ACE Folklife Art helpdesk. Please be aware that the staff will only directly intervene in cases which are considered severe; minor situations may be dealt with using tools made available to all registered members.
Discouraged commentary is typically considered to have the potential to escalate into an aggressive or abusive situation.
While not strictly prohibited we must insist that all personal arguments, disagreements, and other volatile “personal” issues within be confined to private communications such as Notes, emails, or Instant Messaging programs. Likewise, we discourage public accusations and other similar situations; please bring all issues of this nature to the attention of the staff by notifying the official ACO Club Art helpdesk via Skype or Email to TJMorrisET on skype or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exploitive commentary is typically considered to be disruptive due to unusual or unique factors.
Do not ‘spam’ (send large numbers of identical notes or comments). Spamming is obnoxious and is typically used for self-promotion, or other unwanted advertising.
Do not ‘flood’ (place large numbers of comments rapidly on a single page or craft a single comment which consumes a large amount of page space) the forums, notes system,
userpages or other areas of the site.
Flooding usually disrupts page loading times and serves no useful purpose.
Respect Your Fellow Artists
As a vibrant and growing art community ACO Club/ACO Association/American Communications Online/ ACO /AMIGA Art welcomes all kinds of original artworks; but we MUST insist that the artwork which you submit be your own original works.
Your deviations must be your own original creations and you may only use resources which are considered legitimate and legal. Submissions which make use of works without proper permission or licensing by the original author will be removed as they come to the attention of the staff. This policy applies to all ACO Club Art, AMIGA submissions, Scrapbook entries, and the preview images used for written submissions. Please note that our ACO Brand is for our trusted members of whom we are familiar with and have displayed professionalism as entrepreneurs and in our business etiquette
If you have reason to believe that ACO Club Art submission violates this policy, you should use the official Report Violation link which is available on every submission page.
When we discuss mature content, we are specifically referring to deviations which contain images, subject matter, or other themes which some viewers may find offensive, distasteful, or otherwise undesirable to view or to read. The most common ‘undesired’ viewing material may include, but is not limited to, images containing artistic nudity (see details below), large amounts of simulated blood and gore, or generally violent themes.
ACO CLUB/ ACO Association/ American Communications Online/Allied Command Organization all groups, associations, and organizations strictly prohibit the submission of materials classified as pornographic or obscene. There is no exception to this prohibition.
Certain content may be deemed obscene by the administration and as such the staff reserves the right to remove such content immediately upon discovery. The administration reserves the sole right to review and classify questionable material as obscene or not obscene.
Model release forms
The ACO CLUB/ACO Association/American Communications Online administrative staff reserves the right to demand a Model Release form be provided for any photography (nude or otherwise) located within either your Gallery or Scrapbook areas. If you receive such a request an appropriate link will be included in the notification you received. Failure to properly respond to a Model Release form demand within seven (7) days will result in the automatic removal of the associated photograph. We are compliant with all rules of the states in the United States of America.
For your own protection it is highly recommended that you have any model who poses for you sign a release form giving you the explicit permission to publish, share, distribute, and otherwise display the associated images. It is highly recommended that you provide this form immediately after submitting your photograph, especially if your subject is depicted nude.
We cannot allow any nude works featuring individuals under the age of 18, nor may the works depict these individuals in a ‘sexually driven’ manner such as posing in lingerie or displaying a sexually suggestive or provocative pose.
This prohibition is for legal reasons; the laws in the United States are the governing laws regarding all submissions regardless of the country of origin. Photographs which are suspected of depicting a minor in this manner will be temporarily suspended from public view and proper legal documentation (as outlined above) will be demanded while photographs which clearly depict a minor (including toddlers, preteens, and teenagers) in this manner will be removed without notice.
Submissions of a non- photographic nature which clearly depict a minor, fictional character or otherwise, either nude or in a sexually driven manner will be removed and deleted without notice as they come to the attention of the staff.
In addition to the outlines in the above section entitled Prohibited Commentary and Exploitive Commentary we have a few additional policies regarding comments and posts within the Forum areas of ACO CLUB Art; ACO Association.com.
- All threads started within a specific forum and all comments within those threads should be relevant to the forums Title. This means that, for example, all threads within the Movies forum must relate to a motion picture and the comments within those threads should also remain on the appropriate topic.
- We encourage interactivity and we allow comments to be either positive or negative in nature providing that they remain constructive and promote a worthwhile dialogue.
- We insist that forum threads adhere to the same standard set forth for deviation, scrapbook, and writing submissions in terms of what is considered acceptable subject matter (i.e. no racist threads, no sexual discussions, etc.).
It is important to remember to be as clear in your intent as possible while communicating on the internet. Text communications do not afford a clear representation of sarcasm. Please use common sense when posting to avoid confusion. Threads which are misplaced, which contain inappropriate subject matter (such as sexual discussions), or which contain an undesirable number of insults or other violations of this etiquette policy will be locked and closed to further commentary.
This section applies only to avatars which you personally use for your account; avatars submitted into a Gallery or to your Scrapbook must still conform to all official policies without exception but are not subjected to the restrictions below.
Avatars used to represent your account on site are granted more leniency than standard site submissions. You may freely use material and resources with only the restrictions outlined as follows;
- Your avatar should not contain nudity of any sort.
- You may not use avatars specifically created by other users without their explicit permission.
- If your avatar contains a portion of a work made by another artist, it will be removed by staff at the request of the original artist.
- In all other respects your avatar must conform to the guidelines set above regarding hate propaganda.
Exploits, Vulnerabilities, and Site Abuse
The ACO Club staff will not tolerate attempts to exploit or disrupt the layout, navigability, or general use of the site. Such actions disrupt the ability of the community to access and review artwork and are considered Site Abuse.
We will issue no warnings for violations of this nature. Violators will be banned immediately upon the discovery of the disruption or abuse.
POINTS may not be used to circumvent or interfere with the operations and cannot be used as payment for automated services affecting a member’s statistical or performance-based metrics.
All the rules and guidelines of this ACO Etiquette Policy apply to activities within a Group or in the management and administration of a Group. All the policies with respect to content and commentary apply within Groups and any member or watcher of a Group should feel comfortable reporting any activity to which they object based on this Etiquette Policy or otherwise. We are not responsible for the conduct of all ACO Group participants or administrators. However, the Group applications permit us to take appropriate action should intervention become necessary as a result of a violation of the Terms of Service in general or of any other of our policies.
Keep in mind that Group administrators may determine their own rules and privileges for deviants who participate in the Group and as a general rule we will not become involved in any disputes between Group members, between Group administrators or between one or another Group unless there is a clear violation of our own policies, rules and terms. We suggest you use good judgment and decency in all your Group interactions as well as exercising the same cautions you would use in any Internet exchanges with individuals who you may not know.
Changes in Etiquette Policy
As new situations come to our attention, we may find it necessary to alter or expand upon the policies stated here with little or no notification and any such changes may be enforced in full against previously existing submissions or behavior. Alterations of policy may be announced through either the Forum or through other Announcements and News Topics.
Appeals and Inquiries
Appeals, inquiries, or questions concerning deviation removals, violation notices, account suspensions, or other administrative actions should be addressed to the official where they will be forwarded to the appropriate department for review by our general manager or owner.
Petitions and other forms of public outcry are discouraged and will have no effect on Managerial Reviews of staff actions and may in fact be detrimental to the case in question. ACO Association is the creation of ACO Club by TJ Morris ET Radio now also known as TJ Morris Agency and for members in a separate companion’s business account as American Communications Online.
