That's what we were thinking. But we weren't making the rules then, just enforcing them.

Trust me, I know. Always felt bad for how infuriating it must have been.

Loki is one helluva mod/admin, though. As long as he is around, I trust that mod decisions will be as fair as is humanly possible.

Also, I'm hoping most of us have learned valuable lessons from the forum closure that we will keep handy here on these boards. Trolls gonna troll, but we should have a thicker skin now and a bit more clarity on how to 'forum'.

I bet the mods would just love it if they didn't have to do anything, but this is the interwebz, so...

Good luck to all of us and our new home! Let's have nice things, eh? :thumbup:

One question. What about items of personal creativity? Say a poem, or a song, etc. someone wrote with subject matter relevant to this community. Might the work be posted, or would that violate the rule on promotion? I see only promotion of a site or such as being frowned upon.

If you have any sort of art you'd like to post you're more than welcome to. If you want to promote your deviantart account, or poetry website, or something like that as well, just ask us ahead of time. That rule is mostly for spammers and the like.

Good job on the updated version of the rules.

Personal responsibility is everything. As a community we are fairly educated and should not need "rules" to act respectively towards one another but do so out of mutual understanding.

I think it should be noted/explained about what "posting copyrighted" material means, Im pretty sure its legal to post a picture of anything copyrighted, and its protected by fair use if you share commentary/criticism of that said copyrighted piece.

What do you mean by posting copyrighted material? Since "download links to pirate sites" are mentioned in a different sentence?
I think this type of forum, which is full of teaching, critique, commentary is pretty much covered on any music videos / trailers / images, copyrightwise.
