Rules and Moderator Info

Post by Res Ipsa »

I’ve created this thread for general discussions about rules and how they are applied and enforced. Please feel free to make requests or suggestions. Please continue to use the report function to call our attention to posts that violate the rules. You can always contact us by Private Message.

with regard to the report function. I'd like to request that instead of reciting the rules, that posters do just that. Report whatever the perceived violation might be and let the mods take it from there. There's a situation on one of the threads here in Paradise where posters, though they meant well, did that and now there's a derail. Yes, I took part in the derail. It's been reported.

Just use the report button folks.

Like I didn't do when I added to the derail. ;-)

I only quoted jersey so you would know where this is from.

I understand UR 2 to be Universal Rule 2, but what is "FR 4"?

I thought it was forum rule, but there is no rule 4 in spirit prison or spirit paradise.

What is FR 4?

My bad. I transposed the numbers. It should read UR 4, FR 2. FR is “Forum Rule.”

Thanks

Please feel free to make requests or suggestions......
I would like to request that a new forum is created just for me. I want a place where I can discuss things with myself - where I am not distracted by the opinions, perspectives, and thoughts of others.

In addition, I would like to have the ability to remove any posts that I write from these discussions that I am having with myself - and I would also like to have the authority to ban myself if I feel a banning is warranted.

My preference would be to have this forum's location be placed between Spirit Paradise and Spirit Prison and I would like it to be called "Ceeboo Paradise."

I eagerly await a decision based upon this request.

Sincerely,

Ceeboo

Great news, Ceebs. You can effectively replicate this right now. For your own discussion place that is free of other's influence you can just send private messages to yourself (yes this absolutely does work). Because they are your own DMs you can control the content by not typing things you don't like and you can also delete them from your inbox. To ban yourself, simply unplug your router or setup a block to the website via your browser.

Unfortunately only admins can place the forum where you requested and as this is a moderator thread and not an admin thread I'm unable to help you. However if you cross your eyes while viewing the board and hold your head just right, you can probably get the "private message" button to look like it is between Paradise and Prison
