@Ridaku

Your post that contained sexual innuendo has been hidden.
Additionally, do not post screenshots from ingame, as naming and shaming is not allowed on the forums.
Finally, I've re-read the Forum Specific Rules that relate to blacklists and you need to remove all mentions of blacklisting. You have a day to remove it. Below is the part of the FSRs about blacklisting. I've highlighted the part which indicates they should not be mentioned here on the forums, especially since your language on the forums indicates that blacklists are okay and the forum specific rules indicate they are not.

5. I don't want to include Generic Player in my roleplay, and want to let others know why. Can I do this?
The posting of Blacklists, Whitelists or any other form of exclusionary lists on threads in this forum is absolutely prohibited. Member lists do not come under this, so long as they are solely used for the purpose of denoting members of, and standing within, the clan.
Blacklisting is where a player is ignored due to past role-playing experiences. This is in-game and should remain so. It should not be posted on threads under any circumstances. Please use in-game facilities (such as ignore lists, personal and clan) for this, but
do not advertise it.
Blacklists are often used to name & shame, which is off limits, and to make examples of "bad roleplayers". This should never be encouraged. Instead, do your best to help.

@Maedalaane

Coming on to the thread to flame is not constructive or appropriate. Additionally, you've brought in a lot of off-topic content. If you are going to participate in the discussion, you need to stay on topic and stop with the inflammatory comments.

@Shrap

Posting full lyrics to a Led Zeppelin song =) doesn't help with constructively moving the discussion forward.

I think my final comment to everyone is: If you are going to have a discussion about what to do with the two stickied community threads, it would be best to have a separate thread for that discussion. Thanks!

I've just re-read them and the first time what I noticed was bad language, my bad - and so it seemed to be a negative light. I see now that they were supportive. Still, we know that images can be photo shopped (and I'm NOT saying you did that), so I think it is best to not move into a discussion that relies on screenshots.

If another thread is made to discuss how to improve the stickied community threads, I think that it would be helpful if newcomers expressed their opinions on that thread (instead of using second-hand screenshots).

ok so

I'll posting content here in parts, so there will be a few edits.

First, I've hidden quite a few posts in the last two or three pages. These posts were off-topic and/or directed at people.

Second,
RiDaku
, you need to remove the following

RiDaku said:


Mentors

Mentors will be removed/not added if they have an extensive history with belittling or making fun of new/less experienced roleplayers.


because that criteria is basically alleged in game behavior. As you are well aware, in-game behavior allegations are not allowed on the forums. Therefore, you can't have the criteria on the forums. I expect that this will be removed promptly. More importantly, this thread is for the community and mentors are for the community; therefore, one person - for example, in this case, you - cannot arbitrarily be deciding who should be and should not be mentors.

However, the criteria of activity is a much less subjective criteria and reasonable.

- Posting about sex acts is never appropriate on the forums, as you are well aware. Please make better choices the next time you post on the forums.

Ok, so some green team and I have been talking about mentors. Here's what we suggest for the future:

Ideally have set up a mentor app/mentor template
RSN:
Length of time involved with RS RP:
Very short personal description (RP style, etc..)

Then, the first pages post could simply read "These are those who have volunteered as mentors." with no judgment or conditional clauses.

If the community wants conditions, they should only be things like "minimum of 1 year involvement in the RS RP community". However, Twillow's personal opinion (I apologize) is that with the comings and goings of RS RPers, it might be unrealistic to have such a quantifier and then hmm who's going to define 'involvement ?'...which could lead to drama? I guess, my personal opinion is that the above 3 things - RSN, length of time, and description - would be enough. Also, 'active' and 'inactive' those are tricky, too. What one person thinks is inactive, another person might not think so. Just throwing all this out there.

For consistency and the fact that we don't know if newcomers or someone who needs help looks at both guides, it would be nice to have something similar about mentors on each guide.

Ok, so I've edited out my modding remarks because the two forumers have edited out what I requested. Thank you both.

To recap: Having a mentor list or not having a mentor list; neither breaks the forum rules. Suggestions were given about how to have one that stays within the forum rules. It is also true that having such a list can be a tricky thing. You all know there are other tricky things, generally speaking, sometimes happening on threads and OPs respond to said tricky things differently. We do need to respect those various ways of dealing with tricky matters (Also, I know I am overusing tricky, but I like it and I'm too lazy to click a tab for a thesaurus.) as long as they're within the forum rules.

The bigger picture questions here, I think, go beyond our forum rules because they are about principles and ideas regarding community and, by extension, community threads. I did pass the situation - about community and community threads - along to other eyes.

I hope everyone in the Community is doing okay amidst the pandemic.
Also, I hid a couple of flaming posts and a response to them, per housekeeping standards.

... Would advice against the mention of Tumblr though because I am unsure off-site references like those cut the code of conduct. Or maybe Twillow can read this and tell folks how its prefered. ;)



I scanned the first four pages, looking for Tumblr. I didn't see it, but I acknowledge it's easy for me to miss things when there's a lotta text going on. I saw mention of Discord and Skype on page 4, post 5 and thought oh, it's somewhere in here. (wrong lol) I wanted to have a looksee because context is likely key regarding it. Help the purple, blind woman =) and let me know where it is. =)

After consultation, I've hidden posts on this page and the last page. There are several issues that need to be addressed.

@everyone: if anyone believes real-life threats are happening, then that needs to be reported to local authorities.

@Maethaneos: your posts were hidden because they are off-topic and directed at a person. Some of your comments also seem, at best, sarcasm. Given the personal history between you and others in the situation, it is best to avoid that.

@RiDaku: your posts were hidden because they are off-topic and/or flaming. Flaming is against the rules and, in this case, it exacerbated the situation. As a community thread owner, you are expected to maintain the thread within the forum rules, so do not continue to flame others.

@CrocoNuts: I advise refraining from posting in situations like this one.

Finally, everyone, please stick to discussing topics rather than people. Moreover, "No need to flame any players, no matter your history (Code of Conduct)".
