12/6/2017 - Addition to the Forum Guidelines

3 posts in this topic

While we have never tolerated sexism on these forums, the forum guidelines lacked an explicit rule against sexist posts or opinions. One might think such a basic stance would not need to be written down for people to abide by it, but, as recent posts have shown, this is not the case for everyone.

We have therefore decided to clarify the issue by making a change to the forum rules: the section previously titled "Flaming, Baiting, Trolling, Racism, and Name Calling" has been renamed to "Flaming, Baiting, Trolling, Racism, Sexism, and Name Calling", and its contents have been changed from:

Quote
  • Flaming - posts targeted at a player in an effort to anger, hurt, insult, harass, or provoke.
  • Baiting - coercing a player into breaking the rules.
  • Trolling - deliberately provocative posting with the aim of inciting an angry response.
  • Name Calling - abusive or insulting language referring to a person or group. *Prohibited everywhere except role play forums, and only in role play forums where it is being used within reason with no intent to flame, bait, troll, insult, or hurt.*
  • Racism - having or showing the belief that a particular race is superior to another.

Carry on.

You've already proven you can't enforce rules based on Racism evenly and fairly so I'm sure this will go down perfectly.
