So, there's going to be a new Guidelines Section along with a newer version of the Slender Nation rules. This thread, for all intents and purposes, is so that you can have your voice heard on what YOU think should be in the Rules, and the Guidelines.

Discuss.

I would feel safer with at least the sexual roleplay rule still in the rules. Believe it or not, things like that DO happen, and we have fairly young members we should look out for.

(I would discuss a bit more about what I want to see in the guidelines but I'm studying for a test, so a tad busy.)

Yeah, those are staying. >_> Sexual Roleplay forbidden for obvious reasons. As ridiculous as it may seem with the terrorist one, it still needs to be enforced. I'd also like to refer people to the Terms of Service that Forumotion has as well:

Quote :
Forum Terms of service:
The moderators of this forum will try hard to edit or remove reprehensible messages as soon as possible. However, it is impossible for them to review all the messages. You thus admit that all the messages posted on this forum express the sight and opinion of their respective authors and not those of the moderators or the Webmaster (except messages posted by them) and consequently, they cannot be held responsible of the discussions.

- Messages who promote - or evoke - illegal practices are prohibited.
- If you post informations which come from another site

- Please post your messages only once. The repetitions are unpleasant and useless!

Any message contravening the listing above will be edited or removed without additional notice or justification within deadlines which will depend on the availability of the moderators. Any abuse will involve the cancellation of the registration. Internet is neither an anonymous space, nor a space of no-right!

So there's already some rules/guidelines in there as well, and you see that when you first sign up.

Mkay, finished studying, took an exam, and had a nap. I think I'm good now 8D

Things I think should be added to the guidelines:

  • Post in a legible manner. Don't use chatspeak, remember to look over your posts for mistakes, etc., etc.
  • Don't overreact when other members don't use proper English. I love you VI, but I felt that one post was extremely disrespectful.
  • Keep in mind that others have opinions. Don't try to force your opinions on the other members (or, god forbid, the entire mythos); if anything that makes the other posters more adamant in their own opinions, and makes you look like an asshole.
  • If someone disagrees with you, don't take it personally. They don't "hate your guts" just because they don't agree with you.
  • Be mature enough to admit when you're wrong. You can't always be right.
  • When making a new topic (not including a Welcome thread), use the search tool to see if the topic has already been made. If the topic already exists, a mod is very likely to merge the two.
  • Colors may make it more difficult for your fellow members to read your post, so use some common sense when/if coloring your post.
  • Don't color every other word/letter, that's just annoying.
I might add more, but this is all I can think of off the top of my head right now.

I think it would be prudent to mention, in regards to forum arguments, that no opinion can be wrong, regardless of how ridiculous it is. I can think that the taste of mud is superb, and that is my opinion.

I just find it annoying when threads degenerate into wars over whose opinion is "right" or "wrong."

Thank you re. That's definitely worth mentioning, considering some of the past arguments.

Please, if any of you have something you think should be mentioned, speak your mind. We would really like more feedback.
