Grand reopening of the moderated section!
« on: November 20, 2017, 04:55:11 PM »

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! 

:)  :thumbsup:  :critter:

YAY! Common sense previals - I think.

TBH I wasn't paying enough attention to the details to really know, but it feels like things have been set to rights.


At any rate I'm loving the fireworks. I watched them for a while then I think had a small seizure....  but when I regained conciousness I still felt really festive... so WOOT!  :D
