Conduct guidelines

The Forum is intended to provide a platform for well thought out discourse - in order to ensure that the best ideas come forward and are explored in an impartial manner we need to create a fair and equitable environment within which everyone can share their points of view without fear of retribution.

Forum rules have been created with that in mind, though, we are happy to iterate on what is already here and add to it as needed. Largely they represent the core values that in my opinion, every Herd member should share - please ensure to stick to these.

Troop Rules:

  1. Do not under any circumstance use racial/sexual slurs (including shortcuts or loopholes). Do not personally attack or insult other users. Civility is always expected. Absolutely no harassment, witch hunting, sexism, racism, or hate speech will be tolerated.

  2. Avoid spam at all costs - before making a new thread ensure that it does not exist already. This will help to ensure that discussion is not fragmented whilst also ensuring that discussions consider each topic in its entirety and from all angles in one easy to find thread.

  3. Do not encourage, suggest, or threaten violence against individuals or groups of people.

  4. Do not post porn, gore, or other NSFW content. Do not sexualize minors or support paedophilia in any way. Do not use offensive usernames or profile pictures.

  5. Do not doxx or share personal details/photos of users. Do not impersonate other users or moderators.

  6. If you see something against the rules or something that makes you feel unsafe, let mods know.
