Clarification of rule 1h

#you may not# Posts, avatars, signatures and usernames must not imply or suggest that your culture, religion, ethnicity, race, sexuality, country, language is more superior to any other culture, religion, ethnicity, race, sexuality, country, language.


Firstly, the gramar in that rule is a bit off - the last comma in the two lists should be an "or" and "more superior" doesnt make that much sence - remove the more Very Happy

Secondly i think a clarification of the intention with this rule is needed. The intention of the rule is great however the way its expressed at the moment is unclear / wrong, in my oppinion.

Im sure im allowed to say that i believe that denmark is a much more pleasant place to live than so many other countries (thereby implying that its superior to other countries). Im also allowed to argue that buddhism is superior to islam - as long as i dont do an "im right, your wrong" which of course would be against the rules. Finally im also alowed to argue that americas food culture perhaps isnt quite as sophisticated as the french food culture - again that surely shouldnt be a problem...

With the current wording some (new) members may feel too scared to propperly express their views...that doesnt generate good and intelligent discussions - so edit the rule Very Happy

Hope i didnt bore you...Wink

I cant say anything here except that I agree with this too
Only when I have a closer look at the rule, I seem to understand the true meaning

ROFL and LOL

As if the newbies read the darned rules anyway Laughing

LukeakaDanish, good point. I'll rephrase that post.
Users are allowed to opine that a particular state/religion/etc is superior to other as long as it's in a positive projection and not out of spite or discriminatory.

Better point Laughing

But well, generally, the ones who don't read the rules end up not being accepted for hosting Wink

Thanks! Thats the first time i've had a suggestion accepted Very Happy (small as it may be)

Sure n00bs dont read them when they join, but it think any serious frihosters (meaning anybody with > 50 posts) will at some point read them - if not out of necesity then out of interest. (they are afterall mentioned in something like 50% of all threads Very Happy)
Bockman
totally untrue m8.. i've never read them and i'm way above 50 posts (i think)

anyway, it has been edited (and looks great. good job tidruG) and should reflect your suggestion.

I'll -close- the topic for now. any other question related to this theme, please pm a FriHost team member to reopen this topic.

Be Well Cool

P.S. - Need i say that the not reading the rules part was a joke? I better, or someone may take me seriously)
Bockman
reopened by user request (now that didn't take long did it? Laughing )

Nope...that was quick as hell Very Happy

After my previous suggestion i felt like fine reading the rules...Razz...anyway...i noticed something very peculiar:

Shouldnt PM's be mentioned in the rules post?

Although you may not wish to control the content of them in the same way that you control forum posts there are still some concerns...

1: Spam - I know this hasent been a problem yet but it could easily become a problem if some annoying advertiser gets his/ger eyes up for the frihost forum

2: Content - Rascism, Fascism, Insults etc. arent allowed in PM's surely

3: Content - pornographic elements shouldnt be allowed w/ the high amount of u 18's there are on these forums

There are probably more rules which should be set up for PM's - I'll let you tihnk of them Very Happy

Do they need to be changed or am i missing something ?

PMs of course should not be used for any of those but is there much point in having rules for them? Especially since users can block other users who send them rubbish.

PMs are private - that's what the P stands for.
LukeakaDanish
Sure - they are private, but surely they shouldnt be OPEN TO ABUSE ?

I dont think admins can see the PMs unless they get into our account by getting our password, right?

I am not sure, if this can be implemented

If it can, then it is well and good

that situation wasn't overlooked.

But if you receive any harrassing pm, please referr it to the team (and THEN lock the spammer out). even with the power to block them out, reporting abuse to us may prevent the user from spamming other users.

there are other ways to check these situations. remember that phpbb forums (and pm's included) are based on MySQL databases.

Ha ha, Bockman has admitted to spying Twisted Evil

Anyway, implementing a system like this would be a problem and since Bondings doesnt have time and is busy, I think it will be a while before this is even agreed to.

I'd prefer if you called it "Supervising" please Razz

Actually i can't do that part (darn) because I'm not God (a.k.a. Bondings). Just to think on all those credit card numbers i might be missing out on...
For those who think i'm a bit wacko today, you're right.. But since it's my birthday, i ask you to forgive me.

Not possible at all, since Spying is more suitable for this
Or perhaps supervising the spying operations Rolling Eyes
