This is my only community that I have to actively moderate, so I'm kind of new to this (my other community, kosher_cooking
, isn't prone to drama, as you'd imagine). With that said, please bear with me.
I've received e-mails from members complaining about the actions of others. I just want to reiterate the most important rule, which is "personal flaming of other members is not okay". I will also add that "what goes on in the community, stays in the community" to the rules in the info. I shouldn't have to spell this out, but since we're behaving like children, I will anyway.
Do not harass people in their personal journals. That is against LiveJournal's TOS and goes way beyond being immature and annoying. Don't do it.
I really hate to ban members who have been contributing a lot to the community, but I will if and when necessary. Consider this a warning and from now on, we're going to operate under a two-strike rule. The first time you break a rule, you'll get a warning. I will explicitly say "consider this a warning". The second time, you will be banned.
I spend anywhere between four and nine hours a day babysitting. Please don't make it an online job for me too.
And to stay on topic, here's a cartoon that I hope won't start any more shit.
