New forum rules? Opinions wanted

Crumpet 10/25/2021 01:08 pm 444

As many of you know, there was some drama in the forum over the weekend. Up until now, my attitude was to allow all discussions (except for the small list of forbidden ones: self harm, violence, eating disorders, suicide, doxxing, and kandi trades) and try to delete threads as little as possible, basically only if I received several reports for it and it was clearly causing problems. After this weekend, I'm questioning that. I don't want to shut down legitimate discussions about identities, but I also don't want this to be a toxic place where people get so upset that they feel they have to delete their accounts. We're here to talk about kandi, not fight with each other.

How would you all prefer that the moderators handle things? I'll give you a few options, but you can also propose other ideas if you have any:

1) Continue on as we are, rarely deleting anything
2) Continue to allow all posts, but delete any which may cause drama or are already causing drama
3) Delete all threads about certain topics.... but which topics? Maybe identity-related discourse and anything that obviously invalidates anyone?

I'm logging off shortly because I live in England and it's almost my bedtime, but I will read any replies tomorrow. Thank you kao smile

2 is a great one

but personally, i think 3 would be a decent idea, like its very off putting to pop on the site and see serious vents. yes I completely understand needing to vent but is a bead pattern and disscussion site really the best place to do it?

Thanks, everyone. I don’t like to change things without getting feedback from you all first. I’ll leave this open, but it looks like option 2 is winning so that’s what I’ll most likely be doing kao smile
