Discord Rule Changes

1 post in this topic

Hey folks! We are making some changes to our Discord (and community) rules and guidelines. There has been a serious lack of enforcement for the past three years, and while I do not want to be overly strict, I do want to keep some level of order and sensibility within the community.

 

What's changing?


 

  • Any and all use of the N word, including any derivatives or any word that sounds like it (regardless of dictionary definition) will be disallowed. What this means is that if a word looks and sounds like the N word, it isn't allowed. If the word is a real word in the dictionary and has a definition of something totally different, it still is not allowed. However, use of the word is entirely permitted in the #memes channel. Other racial slurs are also not allowed. You also should exercise a level of common sense. Using redskin as a derogatory term for indians is not allowed, but using redskins in context of the sports team is fine. Use your head and think about these things before posting.
  • Memes, shitposts, and other such posts should be kept to #memes. There has been a lot of shitposting and garbage posting done within the lounge and other channels as of late, and it has started to become very excessive and annoying as of late. As such, this new rule will be enforced. Lounge, Tek, Politics and other such channels are meant for actual discussion - not for garbage and shitposting. Any shitpost content will be deleted from these channels if done excessively and repeat infractions will result in a mute. If things continue to be a problem then shitposting will not be allowed period in these channels. Shitposts include overuse of the :b: emoji, copypastas, support of communism or nazism, random emojis (emojis as a response to a message is fine), random references with no context of any sort (ie, "no u") and so on.
  • Earrape and "shitqueuing" with WakaUnited - 

 

What's allowed?


 

  • NSFW discussion - Talk about how you masturbated 6 times in a day, speak out against no nut november and other such things as you please. We won't judge you - we know you do it and you know we do it. You may not however post porn links (not even in #memes, sorry). You also should exercise a level of restraint. That is, don't go into overly graphic detail on your sexual encounters or how you went totally numb after beating your d*** so damn hard 30 to 45 minutes ago.
  • Swearing - Swearing and foul language (except for the N word and other racial slurs) is fully permitted.
  • Shitposting and using racial slurs in #memes - Keep it in that channel and that channel alone, and we won't have any problems.

 

Why are you changing this? Why the sudden spike in enforcement?


 

The truth is, my intention is not to go from 0 to 100 in terms of enforcement. I want to continue to be somewhat lax on the rules. The issue is that despite me continuously trying to kindly ask that you guys stop outright breaking the rules, it is ignored. I would love to just say "don't be an ass" and call it a day, but the thing is I can't be vague anymore. As time has gone on, people have continued to push the rules to their absolute limit. They have continued to try and rationalize their actions with "you dont like communism? THATS POLITICAL BASHING", or making a laundry list of over 100 variations on the N word, or by posting a shitpost in video format and saying "i was going to talk about my favorite video". I have to explain what exactly is and is not allowed, because people have gotten the idea that if I don't explicitly state that it is against the rules, then it must be allowed and if I say otherwise it's admin abuse.

 

You can say it's all a joke, it doesn't matter. If it was a joke, then those of you who break the rules would stop when I ask you to. I am not one to be fond of strict rules. I know you guys aren't either. That is why this post exists.

 

I ask that you guys work with me as to help keep CU a relaxed environment to chat in. If the rules continue to be ignored and I continue to get this trying to get by with technicalities bullshit, then things will only continue to get strict and will eventually end up at a point where the content described above won't be tolerated at all outside of #memes.

 

 

Why don't you just allow the N word and whatnot? Why are these not allowed? Why is this a problem?


 

This is an issue because it's just annoying. Not everyone in CU is a memelord and not everyone will enjoy that type of content. There are a lot of people (myself included) that typically find the content to be annoying and just garbage. That being said, I understand that after 3 years of the content being fully permitted, I would be an idiot to disallow it outright, and to be honest I don't want to ban all memes and whatnot from CU entirely.

 

Lastly, just keep in mind that as Owner, if I say something is not allowed, it is not allowed. I don't do this to say an asshole, but to simply keep order. Additionally, staff are not exempt from these rules - your job is to enforce them. It is not abuse, it is how things have been and always will be.
