    RPS Moderation, The Second Coming.

    This is a place to put all your questions towards moderation and so on.

    However, let me start by stating moderator policy:

    1) Dont be a dick.

    2) Seriously, dont.

    3) Protect private data, share public knowledge.

    4) Dont be a sexist, racist, nationalist or any other kind of -ist. Trappist? possibly.

    5) We dont generally edit or censor content, except when 3) or 4) is violated.

    6) This is a place of DISCUSSION, and no one is out to get you. So dont go out of your way to ignore 1) or 2).

    7) No OMG PROOF link spam.


    Exception) Any content deemed of the 4) persuasion will be deleted, as per Master Rossignol:

That means we will not allow people to use it as a platform to promote ideas or materials we find offensive. You know our politics, so understanding what that means should be easy.

    Good to see we no longer have to worry about being excellent because that has been in short supply in certain threads.

    You need 3 more rules, 7 doesn't sound legitimate though, could you trim it down to 5 maybe?

    I think 7) is a specific jab at wasd/harbinger/tradaa/whoever.

    Also: What about nudist, objectivist, existentialist, collectivist, etc (okay I get your drift, but still, that one could be worded better)?

    What about several moderators having seemingly different methods of handling things? I seem to recall Anthile saying one thing and Quantacat doing another regarding the Zoe Quinn stuff.

    Yes, all of those are banned. all. of. them.

    /me deletes himself

    Also, Im sure Anthile and Berzee follow these rules loosely already anyway, I just wanted to put it out there.

    I just wanted to specify in case Be Excellent was too vague.

    Dont ask me. So far, Ive deleted stuff that could be interpreted as private, but left mots of the other stuff, while deleting some links that refered to her personal life.

    So yeah.

    What do you have again the RAND Corporation?

    Also, by those rules can we make lewd jokes about "second coming"? Where and when did the first coming erupted?

    Strange jab, more an act of self decrepitating as it paints the site as somewhere ignorance is embraced....

    Rule number 8) You cant be tradaa.


    edit: for clarity's sake; tradaa has received infractions recently, he was banned once before, and he trolls the comment section. I dont care about criticising stuff, but he was warned about continual snide negative comments about other users or RPS. and now hes gone.

    Rule number 10) being right on the internet doesnt allow you to ignore rules 1-7.

    To clarify Q's points: the ultimate decision of what is appropriate on this forum lies with the people who own and run the site. We'll remove anything we don't want to see here, whatever that might be. This is a public forum on a private website, and as such we are publishing its content. That means we will not allow people to use it as a platform to promote ideas or materials we find offensive. You know our politics, so understanding what that means should be easy.
