[This post got accidentally deleted. Even modmins struggle w their posts sometimes! Derp. Reposting it with some edits to make it more readable.]

 

Phew! I feel like I've been posting a lot, but I think what I'm about to say has been a long time coming.

 

From now on, I will be removing:

-Polls that ask about religion, politics, sexuality. A reminder: debates about personal beliefs are against the forum rules, as is talking about politics or religion.

 

Anonymous polls on these topics will not end up with a productive or respectful discussion about sensitive topics, especially if the poll choices are binary. I've seen polls on these topics pop up a few times now on a few different MBs, so I need to put my foot down. ex "Do you believe in God -Yes/No" "Do you support LGBTQ+ - Yes/No"

 

**to clarify, it is still totally fine to have your religion, gender identity, and/or sexuality, etc in your signature.** 

 

-"Who's your crush?" or "what forumer do you ship?"-style polls and posts. The main issues here are:

           *often people are included in these threads without their consent, and no one should be shipped without consent

           *can turn the forum into a popularity contest

           *turns into forum romances...which I'll get into now:

 

On forum romances and ships:

I want you all to be safe. Remember that the people you're talking to on the forums are people you haven't met in real life, unless you're friends from school, siblings etc.

 

You don't know who they really are, and they could easily be much older than you or completely different than they've said they are. I can't always be aware of this because I'm not in every thread at all times, especially if you know each other from outside sites. So please:

1. Understand that this is not a dating site. It's a forum for kids to write and talk about WoF and be creative. Dating/romance outside of an RP/story context is inappropriate.

 

2. Be safe. If you start feeling pressured or harassed by someone on the internet, take screenshots of what happened and talk to someone you trust.

 

3. If you feel uncomfortable with something that's been said to you or to another person, remember you can report the post to key me into what's going on. That's also a way you can write me a message if you have personal feelings of discomfort you're not ok with sharing in a public post.

 

*raises wizened, wrinkly finger*

Back in my day, we children of the early internet were told that we shouldn't even give our first names out or we'd be hacked by hackers and kidnapped. Now that's not likely to happen with a first name, but still - be safe about what information you give someone you don't know.

First names and state/country are! However, they are currently getting caught very easily in the filter after some changes we made. So it might take a few tries to get through. But you won't be in trouble for saying them even if they do get caught.

Hi Becky,

 

Thanks for the clarification! I'm guessing these rules apply to the SAMB as well, and if so, could you post it on there as well? I understand it doesn't apply as strongly to the SAMB, since we don't do as much of the rules you clarified, but maybe it could be there for reference...?

 

Thanks once again!
