Read me! Addenda to the Forum Rules.
« on: October 14, 2013, 06:58:03 PM »
With the newly published Forum Rules, we're creating a new thread for various updates to said rules that may pop up in between major revisions.  Once these rules are added to the forum's official Rules Page (the link is in the bar above, close the "Home" "Help" and "Search"), then they'll be removed from this thread.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

The following section was amended on the Rules page:

Quote
Please respect the mod/admin staff -- The moderators and administrative staff of oc.net keep this place running tidy.  While you don't have to agree with a particular decision they make, we ask that you at least respect it publicly.  Do not complain about forum moderation, or the specific official actions taken by the moderators, global moderators, or administrators, on the forum.

When making official decisions, in their capacities as moderators, 3 things will be consistent:
- The notice will be posted in Green or Red
- The moderator will "sign" the notice
- The moderator will indicate to whom appeals should go

We encourage members of the forum to support their fellow users in following the forum's rules, and to informally acknowledge when someone may indeed be in violation of the forum rules.  However, no one should take it upon themselves to imitate or impersonate the moderators, global moderators, and/or administrators (i.e. do not give directives to your fellow users in green or red text, etc.).

The following was added to the "Please Report!" section of the rules today:

However, abuse of the reporting system - repeated reporting of non-infractions, reporting only posts by users you dislike, or over-use of the reporting system - may result in the revocation of the ability to report posts.
