It is wondrous. The only minorly sadface thing is the lack of format buttons, but it's not that big of a deal to type them.

Parsifal, if your goal isn't to make this the "new" fes then how will we get enough new members on this site to have any sort of new FET discussion?

I'm thinking of pm'ing members that haven't registered on this site yet to come here.  Is that too spammy?  I currently stand poised to send about a dozen different users a pm for this site.

Going ahead and sending a pm to every active member I can think of who hasn't registered here yet.  Except the admins.  Should I invite the old admins like Jack and Wilmore?

Please do. Everyone is welcome, if they choose to join.

Wilmore will have a place as admin here, if he chooses to take it. He has a good head on his shoulders and has done some great things for FET.

A new FAQ would be lovely, and maybe even some forum rules that don't suck. I reserve the right to veto any rule that gets written, but if you could draft up a set of them, that would be very helpful. Just as long as we can call each other niggers afterwards.

Rules - Here goes

Treating Others
This is a place for open and free discussion on a wide range of topics and we ask that you respect each other by not bullying or harassing other members of the forum.

This is not the place for personal attacks, or to deliberately stop the flow of conversation from taking place. Please; Do not Hijack threads with the same questions if an FEr has already answered them; do not post irrelevant images or text in other people's topics for no reason other than disruption; do not make any personal insults or irrelevant one word answers. Do not spam the Flat Earth Forums with a bunch of new threads all in one session. Do not sign-up multiple user IDs.

Racism
People are welcome to discuss issues surrounding race. Racist remarks will not be tolerated on this forum. Political stances can be discussed without resorting to racial stereo-typing and abusive remarks towards a race of people. Anybody trying to stir up racial hatred will be banned without warning.

We do not shy away from discussing controversial topics. We welcome debates where other mainstream media outlets would not. However, this is not an opportunity for anyone with any kind of racist agenda to spread their propaganda or to recruit others.

Personal Information
Please be very careful about posting any personal information on this forum. We cannot be held responsible if you choose to post information which reveals your location, identity, or anything else which you may later regret divulging.

We advise that you keep details regarding your employer, your location and your friends/family vague, unless absolutely necessary.

Please do not at any time post your telephone number or postal address on the public forums without permission from the moderators. Do not ask other members on the forum for their personal contact information either. We take privacy very seriously here and anybody seen deliberately breaking this rule will be banned without warning.

Private Messages (“PMs”)
Private messages are subject to the same rules and Terms and Conditions as the rest of the forum.

Please do not post PMs on the forums at any time without prior written permission from the Webmaster.

If you feel a PM has broken the guidelines and you wish to bring it to a moderators attention please use the "report PM" feature. To do this you click on the report to moderator link.

The Admins of this forum reserve the right to access a users private messages ("PMs") at any time for reasons including, but not limited to:
Suspected spamming (including chain PMs)
Threatening behaviour
Suspected illegal activity
Recruitment/solicitation
Please note: Accessing a users PMs will only ever be used in very extreme circumstances. It is not a standard feature we use.

It should be noted that the private message service is not a securely private or confidential means of sending communications to others and you are strongly discouraged from using it to share sensitive information with other users.

We will endeavor to protect your privacy at all times and will never access, read or disclose PMs unless absolutely necessary.

Advertising
Advertising is strictly prohibited without prior written permission from the Administration.

Thread Topics
The Moderators reserve the right to move posts into more appropriate sub-forums at their discretion.

We have many sub-forums and we ask that before posting a thread you consider where your post might best be suited. We also suggest before posting that you use the search function to see if there is already a thread you may add your post to rather than starting a new thread on a subject that may have recently been discussed.

Trolling
While the Flat Earth Society welcomes discussions on their theories and don't expect everyone will necessarily agree with every aspect of their work, anyone who joins this forum with the sole intention of flaming the Flat Earthers on their own forum will find their account suspended.

Please do not flame others or deliberately disrupt users who wish to seriously discuss flat earth theory.

While it is perfectly fine to discuss aspects of Flat Earth Theory that you disagree with or do not understand, posters who habitually criticise flat earth input while offering little or nothing constructive to other forum discussions will not be allowed to dominate this forum.

Report Post Feature
If you see a post you believe breaches any of our forum guidelines, please feel free to report the post to the Moderators, who will decide on what action (if any) needs to be taken. The link for reporting posts is in the bottom right of that post. Only signed-in members can use this function.

Avatars and Signatures
Any user using an unsuitable avatar or signature (unnecessarily brash/large, pornographic or insulting to other members) will be asked to remove it. A Moderator may remove an avatar and/or signature at any time if deemed necessary.

Complete nonsense/Angry ranting forums
Threads which are binned due to abusive, off topic or “petty” rants may be moved to the “Angry Ranting” or "Complete Nonsense" sub-forums. This sub-forum is only accessible by registered members.

It is at the Moderators' discretion whether to delete or lock threads which have descended into rants or to move them to the nonsense forums.

Complaints and disputes with regard to Moderation
If you have a complaint against a Moderator or you feel you have been unfairly treated after having attempted to resolve an issue with the Moderator involved, you are free to bring the matter to the attention of one of the Forum Admins who in this instance will act as an arbitrator to assist both parties to find a resolution they can both agree on. However before taking this course of action, we expect that members will try and resolve these issues with the Moderator involved as a first step.

Discussing moderation on the forum
While we appreciate that everyone has an opinion, moderation issues may NOT be the topic of thread discussions, no matter how strongly you feel about what may or may not have happened to yourself or another poster. If you have a problem with the moderation, make a thread in the Suggestions and Concerns forum.

The Moderation team is NOT at liberty to discuss such matters on the forum threads.

Please ensure you have read our Forum and Communication Guidelines and our Terms and Conditions before signing up for an account.

For information on our procedures for dealing with users who fail to abide by these rules please read the Rule Breaches section.


If you need any help with regards to posting or have an inquiry about anything forum related, please contact a Moderator who will be happy to help.



It is our hope that you will enjoy being a member of our community.



Thank you,

The Flat Earth Society.


I ripped this from another site that is similar to this one. Changed the words a bit. Feel free to butcher further as you please.

This is a good list.  Thork, you should make a thread for this and then edit it as needed.

Usually when I go do something like this, Rushy, Parsifal, Blanko and Saddam will want to criticise the shit out of it because I did it. They can do that in here.

Make it like the FAQ.  A locked sticky which the admins, mods, and OP can edit, and a thread in S&C for suggestions on what needs changing.

I'll get shouted at. If they want it, they can have it.

Thanks for that, Thork. I'll read over it in more detail later and edit as needed. There are considerably more rules there than I had in mind.

Sorry, I missed this post before. I think you've misinterpreted what I said. I want this to be the best possible FES forum (and wiki) it can be. However, I am not aiming to take over the Society part of things -- all the background stuff Daniel does that doesn't pertain in any way to our online community.

Whoever can succeed in the negotiations to erect a plaque on Bedford Bridge in honor of the Bedford Level Experiment should be the new FES president.
