What this forum stands for
« on: December 01, 2013, 07:26:50 PM »
Until we get some more specific forum rules (hopefully later this week) to codify this, there's one particular point I'd like to emphasise.

On the old FES forum, there was frequently a drive to put the Society's public image first, or to encourage the registration of new members, both sometimes at the expense of the existing user base. I don't think that's how a forum community should work. This forum is going to be, first and foremost, about making every member who wants to be here feel welcome -- provided they abide by the rules and respect the right of others to feel comfortable here.

I won't turn away unpopular members from .org simply because they have annoyed people. They are a part of the community, and until such time as they begin disrespecting the rights of others, they are just as welcome as anyone else. The moment we begin discriminating based on how much we like someone is the moment we begin to fracture our community, and I don't want that to happen here the way it has happened on .org.

So please, try to be patient and tolerant of others, and remember that by treating others with respect, you ensure that your own place in this community will be protected by the friendly staff here at .sjm.so.

Thanks for your time.

I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

Am I still allowed to express if I hate someone? Because I really hate Thork. Fuck him.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.

This forum isn't going to enforce being all goody two-shoes. I don't think anyone here wants that. As long as you keep it within reason and are respectful, that's fine.

Yes, but please keep the throwaway insults to the lower fora. We still have standards to maintain up here in Announcements.

But I'm a really nice guy. You went on a walk with Thork before right? I'm a lovely sensitive man. I have issues of course, but being an oddball is the reason I fit in with all of you. :'(

Ya know Thork, you have started to win me over. I mean, you posted a song from the South Park movie on the .org site, and I giggled for a good five minutes about it.
