Good evening, pony friends. I have an announcement today, from the staff.
The staff has been getting a lot of reports from /townhall/ lately, concerning the breaking of our rules on behavior and civility.
The staff has been discussing your reports, and your complaints about the system to us, and we've arrived at what we feel is a more fair, equitable way to proceed here on /townhall/ without the need for extreme action.
We've put together two plans, based on the two prevailing schools of thought here on staff.
First, is Plan A, which is our default plan, and how we'll be moving forward.Under Plan A,
everyone will be given a COMPLETELY CLEAN SLATE to start from, and thereby no amount of past history will influence decisions moving forward here on townhall, -but-, the rules will be here-on-out enforced a lot more strictly.
The first report a thread gets will cause that thread to be locked. This report has to come from a user with post history, and abuse of this system will lead to users being banned.
Thereafter, whosoever is deemed to have instigated the uncivil behavior, will receive a banPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
