What should the forum rules be?

Recommended Posts

I would like these forums to feel like a safe place for people... what do you think the rules should be?

I just think these forums should be safe and positive, everything else is up to you! :)

A few things should be included:

  • Be civil and considerate of others
  • Don't attack/harass people because of their gender/sexuality/etc
  • It's okay to disagree, but avoid personal attacks, constructive critisim is allowed
  • Obviously have a rule against spam

I think the forum is very civil and well-behaved so far. The only issue I have is that some users tend to spam a lot and post many comments in a row (in the same thread) instead of editing their post. It feels like a grab for attention or to rise in forum rank.

I agree that there desperately needs to be a rule against spamming and multiposting.

Well then Greg's bump thread would be against the rules lmao. I don't see anything wrong with multiple posts but if Greg wants to make it a rule up to him. 

But yeah, upvoting posts should definitely be against the rules as far as trying to gain more rep.

I think that could be handled with a settings change. I don't think it needs to be a rule. I do agree that it's annoying and cheats the system.

I think a bump can be called for, especially if it's Greg or other staff members. It serves a purpose. And of course forum game threads are a different subject. What I mean is users who reply to multiple comments by making one post per quote, or threads where 90% of the posts are just the thread maker spamming more comments with occasional input from other users. I'm not asking for rigidity, of course the context of the thread should be taken into consideration.

Invision has a setting to keep users from upvoting their own posts.

I feel like in a lot of ways it's fine the way it is. No one bullies anyone here (and when it does happen it's usually over before it has a chance to start), there's no racist comments or anything malicious, haven't seen any clickbait links containing malware or Trojans, etc. It's realistically the best site I've been on. Safe, secure, positive from what I can tell, just an overall calm environment. I like it here.
