Yes, you read the subject line correctly.
Let me explain:
Right now all the policy documents are some weirdass combination of the the default Discourse policies, some former forum rules (as best I can tell) and some small modifications that were made by @Leah and later @Penguin
This just isn’t logical or workable at this point so I’m going to give everything a major overhaul. Generally speaking things won’t change much, it’s more to clarify things and properly document some policies.
One huge change I’m making though? In the past @Leah and @Penguin granted some exceptions to the rule against stories involving children in sexual situations. When the new policy documents go live these will officially be revoked and any such stories will be removed.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand why those exceptions were originally granted, but I’m not comfortable hosting that content and the problems it can cause just aren’t worth it to me.
That said, to be very clear, stories involving minors will not banned unless they contain children in sexual situations.
Please feel free to ask questions or leave comments and I’ll try to get them addressed ASAP.
Also: Bit of warning, you want to be an ass to me, do it privately, not in public. I’m not naming names, but let me assure you that going forward we will not be giving you multiple chances to straighten up. You get one free warning. if you ignore it, you will be silenced for 30 days.
Ignore that? Suspension for 30 days.
Still a problem after that? Permanent suspension of your account with 0 chances of it being deleted, ever.
