Funny you should mention the rules. I was intending on having a thread on here to discuss and refine them in a little bit.
>I mean they are the exact same one that many other rulecucking/unfunny/failing alts have used before.
A lot of the rules are common sense and have worked pretty well for other boards, so it's a bit of a no brainer to use them as a base.
>Like what the fuck does “12) Do not make off topic posts”
Keep the on topic to the subject of the board. Pretty simple.
Correct, off topic.
>Seems very subjective and easily abusable by the staff.
That's the reason for the mod log. Should we ever happen upon a rouge janny I expect the Anons to keep them in line. Rulings that are more subjective and borderline should generally only result in a warn rather than a ban.
>"2) You will not post banned content: Grotesque (guro)" The thing pone? More guesswork.
More refinement will be available in time. Thing pone in general should probably be fine.
>I felt like I made my point clear enough with how vague and nonsensical the rules are.
If you are concerned, stay around until the discussion on it happens likely sometime in the next week or so (once we've got a draft ready to discuss).
Tor posting is disabled and I do not intend to open it. Too high a chance for abuse. Sorry to anyone who genuinely uses the service.
>VPN/evading in general
In general, when it's obvious it's happening.
>Will I get banned for posting 2-3 similar imgs in a row? Will that count as spam or flooding? Maybe I’m editing a pic and uploading it often for feedback in a drawthread. Do I run the risk of getting banned for that?
No. Spam is when it starts to dominate the thread (or catalog) and has no real reason for existing there.
>So, is all anime banned then? Like simple reaction imgs?
Is all anime loli/shota? In general, pony images will be preferred. The random anime reaction image will likely not result in a ban (provided it doesn't violate other rules), but excessive use may result in a warn. Though at that point it will likely be bordering on spam.
>What about foalcon?
It falls into the category of "I guess". More specification on this may happen in the future.
>If someone does alittle satireposting as a mod/b0, then they get banned?
More than likely you will only get a warn unless you refuse to cut it out.
>Rules need to be super specific to avoid confusion and conflict.
To a large extent, any gaps will be filled in by precedence which quite simply just hasn't happened yet. There are a great many things to consider and for some it might simply be better to cross the bridge when we get there, so as to be able to take involved Anons opinion into account.
Hopefully I've answered some questions. As we are new imageboard, we are in large part still feeling things out. If you have specific
suggestions to improve the rules, please do post them. In general the goal is for rules that are both clear and concise.
