    rules suggestion

    Discussion started by rental - Aug 18, 2004

    i know people probably have to see the rules page and agree to it before they sign up, but maybe taking it off sticky and/or making a special, highly visual button for it on the menu as well?

    or maybe its just summer and there are lots of stupid people that break rules, i dont know.

    Question about the rules

    yeah, i'm bumping a dead thread. it's better than starting a new one.

    i just read the rules for the first time, after seeing posts on a thread deleted due to content. i've also had some posts edited in the past (thanks for not booting me mods) for lack of knowledge of these rules.

    my only question is this: after reading the rules, i notice that there are many threads where rules are broken, mainly with porn or drug talk. so where is the line set, and how do you know if you're crossing it (other than being banned)?

    for instance, i just posted something in ch.0 --the "Dear _______" thread. basically it's a letter to pot, saying i'm quitting. it's all in good fun, and a joke (even though i'm serious) --but is that breaking the rules?

    maybe i look like a total noob asking this, but i'm just curious how all of this works, and how do you know if you're pushing the envelope too far? ch.0 has some pretty outlandish shit on there.

    we try and enforce the rulesw as best we can, but with tens of thousands of users posting millions of entriesw it's impossible to moderate everything. typically we'll let a lot slide, especially if that user is known for posting redeeming content at least part of the time.

    also sometimes it goes in waves so if someone happens to break a rule that we happen to be going through a zero tolerance period on, then they might get caught in the mix and banned on the first offense.

    the rules arent that deep and truthfully for the most part are common sense. we came up with them because after running this board for almost ten years, they're things that we know keep the board and community around here moving in a positive direction.

    this is pretty much what i figured. i've had stuff edited or deleted, but i've never had any hard feelings towards anyone for doing that. more or less, i'd notice my mistake and feel like a douche after the fact.

    all in all though, the forum runs pretty well, and other than some meatheads, i've seen some really good people offering all kinds of support on here. i never used an internet forum, until i started using this one, and it's a strange addiction now. it definitely helps me get through my boring day at work, and boring nights in upstate. it's all appreciated.

    that's my "feedback" for all you running the show.

    so heres a link for anyone who wants to read the rules..

    http://www.12ozprophet.com/forum/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_rules

    or simply go to the site navigation at the top of the page like Raven said.


    on a side note...

    Raven,
    I dont know if you guys are already doing this (because its been a few years since i registered)...but it might be a good idea to send all new accounts a copy of the rules (to their e-mails)...so that they can go over it.

    if thats the status quo, forget i said anything.
