RE: Forum Meeting (All Opinions Welcome)
Before I start a new thread on this, I want some opinions. If nobody has one then Bee and I will do as we see fit but here's some ideas I thought of and Bee will add hers as soon as she's on.

1) I think Kelly (Londonlipton) came up with this and I love it and that's, Three Strike Rule.

For those who don't know, this would mean that a person would have up to three chances to change their act if it was deemed unacceptable for this forum. That doesn't mean it has to be the same act but if a member has been told or reprimanded 3 times, they will be banned from the forum. Kathryn and I are still working through if Bee and I are able to ban or not.
First Offense: A verbal reminder
Second Offense: An Infraction/write up on here under warning I believe
Third Offense: Banned for however long one of us feels is appropriate.

The only reason I am saying this is because there have been some members who on several occasions have acted up and it's been overlooked because there were not a ton of rules being enforced. We're pretty relaxed on the rules for the most part so if people listen it won't be an issue.

2) Members can start using the report button.
If you feel that someone is using horrid language, trying to gain attention through negative language against themselves or another person or if the person is repeatedly attacking you, just report them. Bee, Kathryn and I will look things over and see if it's simply a fight or if it's something that needs attention.

This will keep Bee and I from overlooking the fights and the dramas that happen because we can't be everywhere and we'd like to know if someone needs help.

When someone is reported, we will look at both situations. If it's just three people over and over again reporting each other out of hatred then that's just normal things but if the same person is being reported for the same issues over and over by multiple people who have shown their honesty and integrity on here, then further action will happen as we see fit.

Automatic bans will happen to those who threaten harm on another member or if someone is trying to sabotage the forum with creating multiple accounts. That's something I take seriously at least because that means the person is just simply put, a little unstable. If you are banned and you make another account, it won't be pretty because I'm known to find out. I have a 6th sense or something idk.

3) Bee brought to my attention that people delete posts before the mods can see so they "appear" innocent. She's caught members doing that in the past SO to add to our growing list as well as reporting stuff SCREEN CAP EVERYTHING! Without that screen cap those sneaky people can delete and change their words to look better. SCREEN CAP the second you see a member being bad. It should be at the top right of the keyboard and you just press it, put the image in word or photoshop, save and upload to us. Very simple

I don't want to be a downer. Just follow the rules like you would anywhere else and be decent. I'm not going to give anyone anything for saying "wtf" or "Omg" or something or even some swearing. BUT if it becomes an issue for other peoples then I might ask that person to refrain from swearing so much when posting. It's not unreasonable and if people listen then there won't be any issues.

Bottom line.

Don't do anything dumb
Don't create multiple accounts
Don't forgot to report posts/PMs to us
...and we'll all get along.
