    Default CD rules?

    So, CD has been pretty lax as far as rules for posting go. I haven't had much of a problem with it, but increasingly it seems that threads are being derailed, posters are sometimes using AOL speak, and etc.

    I'm going to leave it up to you guys, though. Would you prefer to see CD stay on this course of minimal management, or would you like to see some post standards being upheld? What kinds of things would you like to see dealt with? Flaming out of Flames, thread derailing, typing standards, absolutely nothing?

    Please only use this thread to actually discuss this issue. Joke suggestions aren't really welcome ITT and posts that derail the topic or add nothing of value will be deleted.

    I think flaming out of flames, aol speak, and thread derailment should be handled. I think bad advice in PS should be punished as well, as well as some form of penalty for threads that get trashed.

    I also think we should disallow image leeching and multiple accounts.

    Thread derailing. Casual Intercourse seems to be hit the worse. "[Official] Post a recent picture of yourself thread" is a prime example. I counted 13 posts about AIDS. Really? I can totally see how that's relevant to member photos.

    Also, posting and typing standards for Casual Intercourse are way too low. Sometimes it feels like SFW Flames. However I have noticed that recently the really crappy threads have been trashed. I applaud this.

    Definitely possible. Ideally, the infraction system will work just like the infraction system at LWS - certain infractions are worth certain numbers of points, and reaching X amount leads to a ban. It was 10 on LWS, and that seems like a reasonable number.

    I guess I could ask Soup if he can tie trashed threads to the rep system, but other than that, maybe we could just add an infraction for the OP. No coding required.

    Leeched images can just be removed, imo. No reason to ban people for it, unless they don't cut it the fuck out after having a few images removed.

    Multiple accounts aren't really a big deal since there is no SP system or any other kind of reward that members would get by having more than one account. If others agree that we shouldn't allow multiple accounts, though, then I'm fine with disallowing it. I just don't see any way multiple accounts scams any system we have at CD - mostly it's about as annoying as letting people have free gimmick accounts, minus the "post with X account" box at the top of posts.

    I honestly can say I haven't one actual idiot here yet. We're all primarily old-school LWSers, so we know the deal, and we aren't actively trying to seek out building our user base (as far as I am aware, I can't speak for the staff) so I would recommend not bogging the place down with rules. Just keep it as-is and chill, and if people do consistently be annoying, shoot them a PM about it and if it continues just forum ban or all-out ban them if they don't clean up their act after a nice request.
    We don't need no rules to know how to rock, they're pretty well understood by everyone here - we aren't noobs.

    I agree 100% with Scarf. Thread derailment is a bit of a problem, but beyond that things seem pretty good. There's not anyone trying to ruin it for everyone, and I do enjoy the freedom of being able to be a bit more irreverent in the forums than we used to be able to be. Also, obligatory: The first rule of CD is don't talk about CD.

    I am for every part of this except image leeching as I am lazy.

    I'm also inclined to agree with Scarfy.

    I'll add a poll!

    I'm of the opinion that other than thread derailment is a problem sometimes, other than that things seem to be pretty smooth for this site being what it is.

    Honestly, the AOL speak and lack of spelling and such frustrates me but not to the point I actually care.

    I think it's fine without rules to be honest. There aren't any complete dickheads about. Thread derailment shouldn't be an issue because it's too hard to define (some threads will naturally progress to other topics anyway). Flames out of Flames is fine unless someone takes it too far but, if so, that person should just be warned against being a twat. Bad PS suggestions (unless you're really taking liberties) shouldn't be a problem either because it implies that there is one particular right answer to everyone's problems. Or people could interpret advice they simply disagree with as being bad.

    Basically, it's a nice little community here. Nobody's fucked it up and the only thing that really would fuck it up is if it became some fascist dictatorship run by nazi mods.

    It's called casual discourse for a reason.

    I agree with scarf, Though there are a few things we might be able to clean up, I haven't seen too much needing work.

    Also, this is the first Kal El post I've seen w/o "Kt" in it.

    I put no before reading the discussion. I made a mistake.
    I hear the voices inside my head. They counsel me. They understand. They talk to me.

    Voted "No, CD is fine the way it is", with the caveat that in the case of exceptions (that is individuals who break implicit rules, seeing as we have no explicit ones), some measures will be taken (possibly poll threads initiated by those with Modship)

    Introduce a 'retard clause' and leave it at that.

    Okay. The infraction system is not being enabled. The users have spoken.
