Community Guidelines Thread

New, 69 comments

I get sick of thread comments where all people post is whining about the topic being brought up - I want to add a line about that but here are our community guidelines - anyway this is the thread to talk about or community guidelines. (no this not a democracy, you don't get a vote or a chance to pretend your opinion is populist, just give feedback here as you see fit, I listen to the masses better than QaDaffy). Community Guidelines were last updated on Robb Quinlan's birthday in 2010.

Here they are:

TOPICS:

  • The Angels and Baseball are the topics.
  • The purpose here is to have fun.
  • If you are not having fun, come back when you are ready to have fun.

COMMUNITY CONDUCT:

  • OPTIMISTIC? Don't bully others into cheering along.
  • PESSIMISTIC? Bitch once, then offer a solution. Don’t bitch twice, it’s alright.
  • Disagreement and intelligent critiques are welcome.
  • Criticism is not censorship - your opinion is always allowed, but so is everyone's opinion of your opinion.
  • There are ladies and children here on occasion, so keep it PG-13.
  • You may use the F-word once a month maximum.
  • No T&A pictures ever - No exceptions.

COMMERCE:

  • No Ticket Sales
  • If you have something to advertise, buy an advertisement
  • Don't join the community to pimp goods or services

GAME THREADS:

  • No posting pictures, animated gifs, etcetera in game threads.
  • No requesting new game threads.
  • No links to pirate feeds.

FANPOST/FANSHOT:

  • You are obligated to use good grammar and write about interesting topics.
  • Try to impress us.
  • We offer sophisticated posting tools, so learn these tools.
  • FanShots are for quick links and news with little commentary.
  • FanPosts are deeper analysis, investigations and detailed, passionate commentary.
  • Your FanPost/FanShot Headlines MUST convey the Subject.
  • Redundant, ambiguous, boring or amateurish FanPosts get erased without warning.

HOW TO GET BANNED:

  • Martyrs and Hostile posters get banned fastest.
  • Start telling us what to do.
  • Halos Heaven is like Vegas and our goodwill is like your casino chips - if you gamble away your chips you don't get them back, they're gone from the table and you're gone from the casino.
