After getting off to a rough start the moderated section is now undergoing a grand reopening in its new more mature & finalized state!What's New
- Blanket amnesty is hereby granted for all existing bans
- BabyShark is now an official moderator for this section
- This section will now use
the new tiered banning system implemented by BabyShark the new Play Pen-itentiary subsection to quarantine rule violators from the main Moderated discussion area. Banees can use "The Pen" for the duration of their ban to reflect on their actions & request reinstatement at any time following a suitable and meaningful period of rehabilitation
- The rules have been clarified somewhat *
- All forum users have an equal right to use the moderated section; prohibition of vulgarity/obscenity in this section does not extend to usernames, avatars or signatures
It's important to understand that this section is intended primarily to foster respectful discussion on any subject in an environment protected from the usual lawlessness of the other forum sections & of war2 in general. As such the primary role of our moderators is to protect users from flagrant, contentless flaming/trolling/provocations/abuse, much moreso than it is to e.g. somehow protect them from any possible manifestation of "obscene" content, and any punitive measures taken should reflect that role & be common sense extensions thereof.
That's it for now, have fun everybody! Look forward to seeing & participating in lots of great & illuminating conversations on many subjects!
