[Suggestion] Put all forum and oekaki rules in one place

Postby Larkspur1678 » Sat May 04, 2019 6:26 am

Something that has been bothering me and many other users for years is the lack of a complete and organized rules page for the forums/oekaki. The ones that currently exist are very scattered and are also incomplete in most cases. These 'hidden rules' are something easily fixable and would make life easier for both the mods and players, so i'm honestly perplexed as to why a rule overhaul hasn't happened yet.

A second issue i've seen is a lack of unity in how mods handle these situations. It seems as if theres no set guidelines for how to amend these situations, each mod seems to hand out punishments differently. It's not just different punishments either, but even what is and isn't allowed. I think a lack of clear rules contributes to this, and it makes going to a mod for clarification not very helpful in some situations.

Overall I just think that the forum and oekaki rules really need to just be over hauled and actually made complete. The site definitely suffers because of this and it's a crucial part of any kind of social platform. People need to know what the rules are so they can follow them.

oh god i absolutely support this, and it's not even like it would be a difficult fix. right now, for an example, here are all of the oekaki rules alone (that i could find)

general art and image posting rules
general oekaki rules
oekaki competition rules
this is just the oekaki guide but it has links to all the rules i may have forgotten

and we can't forget about all the little warnings at the tops of various boards

and remember, these are just the oekaki rules :'0

    big support. having them spread out all over the place is confusing and they often get overlooked.

Yes please, would still love something centralized and visible for all the site rules. This has come up a few times in the past, and our temporary solution is the Rule Index in General Discussion, but it's definitely not exactly comparable to what a centralized, visible place for all the site rules would be.
Was your pet adopted December 18, any year, or December 24, 2011? It is most likely an older pet! CLICK ME to identify your pet!

Context, consistency, and clear antecedents are golden.
I neither read nor speak between the lines. But I will analyze your language.

If there is something specific that you’ve seen inconsistent handling with (one mod says it’s allowed and another gives a warning) please send a polite help ticket so staff can discuss the topic and make sure they’re on the same page. Mods are humans too, they don’t always realize there’s another way to interpret a rule or guideline until it’s pointed out and they can have a group discussion :)

sometimes the depression, the anxiety
comes and wraps around my chest
so tight I can hardly breathe

how can I talk about my feelings,
when my demons have sunk their claws
into my lungs, and left me here to bleed

Discussions can take a while unfortunately. If a problem is pointed out and the staff is divided it can take some time to decide how to move forward. We have to leave enough time for anyone who wants to contribute to see it, and furthermore actually come to a solution, all the while dealing with the normal requests that are always coming through in good number.

But if the problem isn’t pointed out that discussion can’t even begin to happen, so we appreciate when users bring these things up c:
