Rule Ideas
« on: March 27, 2013, 12:36:54 PM »
If you have an idea for a rule, or if you need rule clarification (such as examples), or if you think you have a suggestion as to how a rule can be updated or modified to fit current trends on the board, please post it in the format similar to the review forum. I know some of our rules are outdated and we can't be arsed to change the entire list at the moment, but some members are on here a lot and have noticed things that some of the staff may have not.

 I figured since I made a little discussion thread about the now-Rule 19, and Nick then followed up with a clarification question, it couldn't hurt to make this an official notice so that you can contribute to the forum if you would like.

 Please do NOT suggest doing away with certain rules such as 0 and No Pornography.

 The idea is to get the suggestions and examples together, then re-do the rules list (I'll make it pretty) and be able to link here in case people need clarification without cluttering up the thread itself; it will be especially helpful, I believe, to new members who don't know the ebb and flow of the forum as well as we do.

 I may also add the punishment parameters with each rule - for instance:

 
    Rule 15: No Nudity
    • This includes, but is not limited to, pictures, links and videos, pornography or otherwise. A simple NSFW tag will not cover it here. The best way to determine this would be to say that if it is not allowed on a regular, public beach, then it is not allowed here.
    • Examples: Posting a photo of a woman who is topless, be it an actual hosted image or simply a link.
    • Punishment: Warning; 1-Day Ban; Permanent Ban

     That's just a ROUGH idea of how it could be structured, I'm open to suggestions here. The idea is to neaten it up and make it a little more visually attractive. Obviously some rules will net warnings long before bannings while some will net one strike and you're out. This will just help us all agree on things. Please don't be shy to post your ideas, as long as they aren't the aforementioned.

    I'll offer more ideas tonight when I can get on my pc, but for now I think rule 7 and the mention of the doghouse in the preamble probably should be addressed. Also sorry for not following your format, I'll edit this post tonight to fix it.

    Rule #4 and its variations could probably be simplified by stating that "Low content poss outside of the brothel are not allowed" or something to that effect. All threads must have discussion value, and all posts must contribute to a discussion. The odd meme pic would be acceptable, of course.

    Also, maybe a rule about the "report" function being used instead of forum users trying to play hallway monitor on their own. Might lead to less conflicts if this were enforced.

    Well, the format was mainly to keep the individual threads organized, although if it's in this topic as point of discussion I don't suppose it needs to be worried about as much.

     The doghouse thing is super obsolete so I think you'll find we're all in accord regarding that one, I imagine that everyone will say the same thing there :lol:

     I'll wait til you get home and add all you wanted before I get into a discussion about the rest.

    Oh I misunderstood, I thought for some reason that we were supposed to reply to this thread in particular. Sorry!
