Site Rules & Regulations

Post by aesta on Wed Jun 03, 2015 11:13 am

Hi everyone, and welcome to the TMS Treehouse! This forum is meant to be an unofficial, off-topic hangout for regulars of awesome website [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

I aim to keep this space as inclusive and safe as the comments section over at TMS. As such, some of our policies may [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns, and have a great time here!  Razz

General Guidelines
  • This forum is intended to be complementary to (not competitive with) TMS's comments section, so please keep discussion of any articles posted to TMS over on TMS.
  • Feel free to use the color options for topic titles. Please don't use Red or Indigo, however, as those are reserved for mod purposes.
  • Some forums have specific guidelines, so please adhere to those, too!
  • Promotion (posting links to your blog, vlog, articles, etc.) is okay, as long as it isn't excessive. Advertising (promotion of your online store, or services for money) is not. tl;dr use your best judgment and don't spam the forums! Wink
  • As admin, I reserve the right to restrict membership to regular users of TMS's comments section at any time and for any reason.
  • Don't be a jerk!
Grounds for Comment Deletion
  • Personal attacks against another forum member. This can run from name-calling to sentences that include the words "people like you" or statements that begin "I bet you" or "you must/probably" etc. Basically, if you make a jerk comment, I'm gonna delete your jerk comment, so don't do it!
  • Jokes or aggressive negative comments on the aesthetic appearance of a person, or their avatar.
  • Hate speech or other clearly intentional jerk behavior. This includes, but is not limited to: the use of the word feminazi or a comment that denigrates women, feminism or feminists; broad imprecations or assumptions based on race; and anything that amounts to “ugh the gays,” “ugh liberals,” “ugh, fangirls,” etc.
Grounds for Banning
  • Engaging in any of the previously mentioned delete-worthy behaviors consistently and as part of a clear pattern OR presenting a particularly egregious example of one of those behaviors. We normally give one warning to a user before banning unless a pattern of behavior is clear. However, we reserve the right to skip that step.
  • Hate membership. If your history of commenting on TMS or participating in these forums makes it seem like you are only a member in order to start fights or specifically to disagree with or harass group members, we will ban you.
  • It is at the mods' discretion to ban anyone whom they determine to be a detriment to the atmosphere of the group. This is our group, and we want it to be a safe place.

Please note that the above guidelines pertain not only to forum posts, but to private messages, user avatars, and signatures as well.
