As some of you might know, Sisko95, sloth and myself have become new admins of this great site. Following the widespread demand (with which we completely agree) for the site to have some rules and guidelines, so everybody can know what they can and cannot do, and in the spirit of inclusiveness, we invite you to make suggestions for the next several days on what rules would you like to see, what do you think would be fair etc. In short, what would be most conducive toward making a healthy and stimulating environment for debate and discussion, while preventing toxicity and negativity from spoiling our fun.
We will analyse these, see what makes most sense, what is practical, add our own and formulate an official guideline (that we will post in due time).
Two other very important announcements:
1)One of the rules will certainly be a zero-tolerance toward double-accounts. We will leave you this space, while this thread is active, to disclose if you have ever created a second account. If you do it, you will suffer no repercussions, besides your second account being banned. But after the rules are formed and posted, if we spot a double account, the offending member will be automatically temporarily banned (for a duration to be determined). If you create another account while banned, in order to circumvent that ban, the penalty gets automatically upgraded to permanent ban. There will be no exceptions.
2)We encourage you to use report button whenever you see an offending post. Your report will not be ignored, whoever the offender is. We can't guarantee that we will agree with you that a post in question amounts to violation of the rules, but we will "hear you out" so to speak. Accumulation of genuine rule violations will lead to suspension.
If you have any questions, fire away.
