We need to nail down some actual rules

For me it's piss; no racism, homophobia, misogyny, suicide shit or disability slagging. Basically stick to the the rules that the majority of social media platforms do

We can still tell each other to shut the fuck up, fuck off and call each other cunts etc.

And for the sake of the forum no "agenda" LVG shite because everybody is fed up with it

Anything else?

For some perspective / ideas here's the Caf's rules and regulations http://www.redcafe.net/help/rules-violations

As you can see by banning racism, homophobia etc like decent fucking human beings we're still way more free and rebellious than the Caf who don't allow swearing, telling anybody to fuck off, telling mods to fuck off, excessive text speak, typing in caps...

All that should be allowed on here IMO

The only ones I'd follow are:
Rape in any joke form and Paedophilia in any joke form - AKA ABSOLUTE NO FUCKING NONCE SHITE in any guise whether it's using a paedo's name, a "joke", "bantz" - fuck all of it
Use of these words: retard, spastic, mong
Multiple accounts
Spam
Third party advertising
Porn - I don't want to see what you lot wank over tbf

But what do you cunts think?

Doesn't do anything to change how i post. So it'll be no problem.

The problem is we can only suggest it. I can't do anything about implementing it.

Everyone gets a chance to have there say and offer something to the table those who don't will have to accept any changes and any implementing will have to be done by the mods.

Yeah the mods will have to be active and back up the rules otherwise there's no point

Are Bri, Alf and Fub up for it? You'll probably get flak at some point like but you'd be acting on behalf of the community, not as an individual

I've already stated that I would prefer not to take on mod duties (unless there really is a pressing need at a particular moment and no one else is around).

You need to include the new mod around town: I've asked Robbo to dust off his moderator's cape and come back on board. he was the original mod in this incarnation of the board and is happy to do it again. if any of you have a problem with that then, er, you can fuck off.

I'll run a scenario past you:

Someone replies to a poster/comment with the following: "Shut the fuck up, you thick fucking cunt - you're worse than a woman!"

Depending on the person, there's scope within that statement for someone to have a genuine grievance based on one or all of the following:

- It could be perceived as being overly aggressive, even threatening.
- The person may have some mental impairment/recognised disability for which this statement which causes them genuine upset.
- The reference to a woman could be interpreted as being misogynistic.

I'm only highlighting this as a possible example, as I've been involved as an independent moderator in enough employer/employee disputes where genuine grievances have been lodged based on someone's perception of a statement.

And I suppose that's the point I'm trying to make - how can rules like this be implemented and managed without it being misconstrued? Who's responsibility is it to determine what is allowed and what isn't?

I appreciate common sense has to prevail where possible, but I think this is going to be really hard to manage...

Harry... I take your point however you need to knock it on the head with calling any little thing that isn't strictly 100% on thread topic out as "agenda" and "hijacking".

I view this forum a bit like a night out down the pub with mates. Conversations can take interesting tangents and, if people don't start being cunts about it and going into flame wars, they almost ALWAYS come back on topic.

This goes for everyone. i'm not aiming this at anyone in particular and I don't have clean hands on this point either.

ok... pint... I did realise you were from the same ISP and you sort of let yourself down with your inability to use a comma.
