Community Guidelines


#123

Please be aware that I have updated the community guidelines. I recommend re-familiarising yourself with the existing guidelines as well. :slight_smile:


#124

There has been a huge clean up and re-work of our Community Guidelines. Please re-familiarise yourself with the new guidelines in the first post of this thread.


#126

Tldr;
Don’t be a douche.


#127

George Carlin would be proud.


#128

Is there a way to find out how long a ban is? Apparently my first time offence is longer than 24 hours…


#129

Any rules against making false allegations and doctoring those photos to support their claim?
If not… There should be. :grinning:


#130

i flatly deny that comment… unless you have video evidence then i plead insanity :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::yum:

Sneaky cheeky update. It goes without saying, but sometimes you still gotta say something.


#132

Can we consider adding “intentionally spreading misinformation” to the list, please? It’s starting to become a problem in the past few months.

Misunderstanding information by mistake is perfectly okay, but knowingly do it to cause argument like a troll is not. In my opinion at least anyway.


#133

I think this is a good idea!


#134

So we can’t have stupidity also being branded as against the guidelines? Now that’s a shame.


#135

We have an update to our Community Guidelines! Please read what it is below, and if necessary, re-familiarise yourself with our pre-existing rules.

The PG-13 Line

Sometimes there are things that are said which don’t clearly violate out pre-existing guidelines. However, there are instances where while something may not technically break a rule, it is still harmful, inappropriate or best not mentioned in polite company.

This is where the PG-13 line comes in. We want you to have fun and be able to express yourself, but if we feel that something significantly crosses this line, you may be banned. A good way to frame this is by thinking about the following:

  • Am I posting this for shock value? If so, probably best not to post it.
  • Am I trying to goad someone into an argument? If so, maybe don’t.
  • Am I comfortable with my children reading this? If not, don’t post the thing. (And if it’s very inappropriate and you would, maybe re-evaluate some of your choices. :P)

Sort of like for people who have nothing relevant or useful to say and just hang around throwing rocks?


#137

No OT tonight.”
