With more people coming in and more people having more leisure time we're notice an uptick in misbehavior.
This is normal during the holiday seasons but many of them are completely avoidable with a few quick reminders about what is and is not acceptable here at Southperry.
- Our intended audience rating is PG-13. Mature content does not belong here, even if you clearly label it. Just because most of us are older than that does not mean it's OK to post more adult material. Posting things of that nature run us the risk of being blocked by image host providers, having our paypal account canceled, and having our host terminate us with no hope of recovery. Those risks far outweigh anything you can possibly be getting from posting an image here instead of somewhere more appropriate.
- Show a little respect to your fellow Southperrians. You don't have to kiss their asses or agree with everything they say, but you don't have to be a jerk about disagreeing with them either.
- Be the bigger Southperrian. If someone can't let go and do the above, don't retaliate. Walk away. If you have to engage do it civilly but accept that sometimes people just disagree and no one can "win". If the other person stepped out of the lines and broke a rule, report it and leave it to the moderation team to address, don't keep fueling it and making a bigger mess or you'll just earn yourself an equal punishment because 'he started it' doesn't excuse your own behavior.
- Don't post just to post. In Shenanigans, sure, go ahead. Anywhere else, use the Pineapple/Pomegranate as the spirit moves you. Don't post reaction images. Don't post "+1" or similar inanities. It's just increasing the noise people have to wade through to find actual content.
Please take a moment in your spare time to read the Rules & Regulations again and re-familiarize yourself with old rules and new.
In support of the Obscenity rule and reducing the number of people unintentionally violating it the Open Canvas is now auto-moderating image posts for as long as the moderation team deems necessary.
Happy Holidays and remember to play nice.
