Lovely! I'm glad we finally have some rulez, though it's quite saddening that these sounds like common sense that everyone should already know. But it's good for the thick-headed ones. Thanks Nezchan!

Well, the concept is the more detailed you make the rules, the more likely some ass is going to try to lawyer them. Better to have them largely common sense and give the mod(s) latitude to interpret on a case-by-case basis.

2.) comments should stay relevant to the thread.

Oh good heavens, no! We get such awesome irrelevancies, I'd hate to lose that.

I'm all for free-range conversations.

Well when u say it like that, I guess you're right. But sometimes when I'm checking out a specific thread and I don't find anything that's even slightly relevant to the topic it's supposed to be, it gets quite tiresome. Oh well, 'twas just a suggestion. I appreciate your feedback though!

Oh, I know what you're getting at. I guess it's the price for getting all the fun and creative threads.

I'm so sorry :(
I asked Nez to ban me for such offenses, but she was far too nice to do such a thing.

Not that I'm against the ruling or anything.

Bafflingly, in my experience at least, even simple rules like this somehow aren't common sense to a lot of people and I've commonly seen people surprised when they get in trouble for breaking these sorts of rules. And I don't mean from people who are new to the internet either.

For all we know, I could be an idiot (horrible realisation)

Per Dunning-Kruger, the more you think you're not an idiot, the more likely you are to be an idiot.

What's it mean if you don't think you're not an idiot but you also don't think you're an idiot either?

I did some reading on his theory and it's pretty spot on.
"Stupid people lack the capacity to realize just how stupid they are."

All posting of any kind will result in a permanent ban.

Oh thank goodness. I was thinking there was something important missing.

Definitely. That's why I read the whole thing. And this rule is definitely of much importance.


@Rule 2
Glad to see that it's just gonna be a shot. We can still survive. Unless we got Tiro Finale'd or something like being shot by Godoka.

Haha yes agreed.

Hopefully your rules are identical to these ones, then. What a lucky coincidence that would be.

I protest that the title is wrong, forum does not rule, in fact it's non-fly and relatively hyperratchet.

I think you're one of the most reasonable persons I've seen on the internet. I'd generally trust your judgement but as a moderator you're judge, jury and executioner all at the same time (a questionable concept) and it leaves a bad aftertaste when I see posts disappearing or edited so frequently.
If you really have to edit something, make a note in the post why you did it. Every time, if possible. Considering how regular users have zero control over what the staff does, it's the least you could do. On a different occasion you actually managed to delete the post's content and that just shouldn't happen. To be honest, I'd rather have the stupid and vile posts stay. Within reason, of course, but It isn't like we have to deal with homophobic, racist or radical people in here.
This may seem a bit pointless but the worst thing that can happen to a forum is moderators going on a rampage (no you haven't done that) and it's also a matter of principle but you know, that's just like, uh, my opinion.

I have no idea what you mean by editing for a start. The only edits I do are to add spoiler tags (which I should hope are obvious) and very rarely stuff like removing links from the Fluttering Feelings discussion, almost all of which had the edit marked. I normally do mark stuff "removed by mod" or something similar, but it's very rare. Do you have any specific posts in mind?

I do know there was an occasion a while back where I hit "edit" when I thought I'd hit "quote" and removed content by accident, but I did leave a note in its place explaining the mistake. It's not happened since as far as I am aware.

Editing is changing a post's content in any way. I don't have any specific examples in mind but I had the impression that you went further than adding spoilers which was apparently wrong. Sorry about that.
This is exactly what I meant though, as a normal user I can't keep track of what you do at all.

I haven't seen most of the edits so I can't say anything about that, but I've been thinking something similar for a while now regarding deleted discussion posts (considering I've been a part of a few of them myself). I think it's fine to put a stop to a discusion that's out of hands, but most of the ones I've seen are merely getting heated. Discussions are bound to be heated and I personally don't see a problem with this. Being stopped halfway frequently puts a damper on things.

That or I'm just plain rude. Who knows.

It's fair to assume if a post is edited that the original user did it. I'm notorious for editing all my posts a thousand times.

If you do have a specific example at some point, I'm happy to chip in to tilt the system towards or against something, but almost all deleted posts are run by the uploaders first anyway; and all bans have to be done manually by the administrators.

I'm very curious to hear more! Would you mind e-mailing me, or dropping by IRC some time (preferably not today)? The point is never to stop discussion, it is to stop personal attacks, and inflammatory commentary that discourages others' from posting. This is really very rare - I can't think of it happening once this year.

Sooooo at least based on the above two posts, I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but just for an "official" confirmation: swearing is fine?

So long as you're not violating any of the other rules, yes, swearing is totally fine.
