Moderator Announcements

A forum for respectful discussion & exchange of views on news, current affairs & thought-provoking topics; please read and be aware of the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the News, Current Affairs & Debate subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions relating to news, current affairs, or philosophical & scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

We have decided to allow 'guests' to enter the chat room, because we feel that if people get to know the users in chat first they might be more willing to make an account. Since this scheme's implementation, we've already had one new user who was first a chat guest, so we're hopeful it'll be successful. Be nice to newbies!

Obviously this makes chat more vulnerable to shady types, so be vigilant if they do come in. If no mod/community ambassador is on the forum then most of us are only a Facebook message away.

We're more than happy to receive positive/negative feedback with respect to this, but we're optimistic it'll help.

Dessy has decided to stepdown as a Moderator (hence why we appointed Kaspar recently). I think we can all agree Des has been a fine Moderator. Thank you for your time and efforts, Des!

We are very happy with Discord activity & the way guests have fitted in to the community by following the link on the homepage. We must remember though, that is the forum's chat.

Therefore, we are creating a rule that guests have 7 days to sign up & create an introduction thread on the forum. They should not be immediately pressured, but if a guest has stuck around on the Discord for a few days - encourage them to sign up. If not, they will be removed after the 7 days.

Thanks.

KrisCross has decided to step down as a Moderator due to time commitments. Whilst not that active the last couple of months, Kris has been an amazing Moderator, and I hope we see him back either as staff or as a member in the future.

Freakism has also been removed as a Community Ambassador due to time commitments.

We are making it easier to send in complaints about users on the Discord, and they may be anonymous. I've not set it up just yet, but there will be a link on the #gayteenforum channel in which you can detail the complaint and provide screenshots.
