Today I finally got to address things that were pending being addressed a long time ago in the forums.
- The “Being Respectful” aspect in the Rules has been updated and extended, and an explicit section for “Executive” action in case the rules are not followed has been included as well. In the past, we have allowed certain disrespectful behavior that will no longer be tolerated.
- This included banning particular accounts that had traditionally made the forums hostile and unwelcoming for new members. I’d like to personally apologize to everybody for this very late reaction, and I hope this serves as an example of our willingness to take direct action to make things better for the community.
- I also included some parameters for the kind of content allowed, to make it clear we welcome discussion of non-traditional roguelikes and we discourage off-topic discussion.
- The board structure was updated to reflect the new Content parameters.
- I’m also in the process of updating the Theme (changed the background for now)
