Code of Conduct Amended

Postby forumadmin » Wed Aug 01, 2007 2:07 pm

The Chode of Conduct has been amended to include a guidline regarding the use of profanity in our forums. Item #5 states it clearly. But to summarize, profanity is not welcome in the general forums. The exceptions are those froums which contain the tag "THIS FORUM MAY CONTAIN PROFANITY" in their description.

Private forums, i.e., those hidden from view of by the general membership, are exempt from the profanity policy. Use whatever language you see fit in private.

I expect you all to use your good judgement, and I'm not here to wash your dirty keyboards out with soap. Nobody will be dinged if an occasional cuss word shows up now and again where it is not sanctioned. If it's overdone, we now have a rule that can be used to correct an undesired situation. In general, any thread posted in a no cussing zone that contains more than two occurrances of profanity will a candidate for deletion without notice.

And, just to cover all the bases, the idea of using the word filter has been abandoned.

can you change the forum heading colours? that would make it simple: blue/purple/red/whatever denotes swearing zone?

Interesting concept, but the colors can't be changed for individual forums. Sorry about that.

hey, Yogi...could you consider like maybe a "casual cussin' zone" type forum? you know...it might have some cussing but not necessarily has to go in that direction. you know for those subjects that aren't really "flamey" or "adult" but have some 'blue words'...all with a warning?

cause sometimes you just want to go "Oh that's f***ing awesome! DUDE!"

which isn't really appropriate necessarily but it's not like it's an angry thing. does that make sense?

I can't see how a "zone" would work per se, however, we have added special interest forums as a result of past requests from our members. If you would like to see a forum just for that purpose, post your idea and get a discussion going. Should there is enough interest on the part of the general membership, who are we to not add a special interest forum mandated by the masses?

ok, here's another one:

how about having the free speech zones grouped all together?

uh...am i missing the fact that this whole site is a free speech zone??? or do you mean the "adult content profanity" type forums be grouped together? is that really necessary? we can't scroll???

eh, i'll leave it for now. i'm tired of being attacked on this site enough for the week. maybe next week.

i wasn't aware i wasn't allowed to ask any questions, Teacher. i was just asking for clarification. you don't have to be snotty about it. it's uncalled for since i was merely asking a LEGITIMATE question. or is that forbidden by you as well, Teacher?

meadow, this is a classic example: that was clearly an exchange between yogi and pilvikki and your input was neither warranted, desired, nor meaningful.


end of lesson.

oh, but yours now is required? i'm sorry, i wasn't aware it wasn't to be questioned and that i was not allowed to ask questions on that. i didn't know you became the Post Police here. isn't that your job on another forum? i'm not allowed to ask someone a legitimate question to clarify what she asked? since when?
