TET: Filled with many strange things screaming to get out

Postby Dread Lady Nathicana » Tue Jan 21, 2014 7:38 pm

A quick re-posting of the Rules of Engagement so we're all on track:

There have been multiple requests for a chat thread in various forums. The fact that we have traditionally come down rather hard on them has been in place for ages, and for a number of different reasons. After discussing various points, and the fact that it seems to be something the players would really like to have, we’re going to try it out and see how it goes. Please bear in mind the following:

  • There are no new rules for these threads. If you have a question on the rules, I have links in my sig to handy threads to refresh your memory. Things like ‘do not spam, do not flame, do not troll, do not bait your fellow posters’ are all very good things to keep in mind.

  • Keep it family friendly as much as possible. In other words, however much you want to hug and snuggle and flirt, do not get graphic with it. This has also been a problem in other chat threads, and some have been shut down for it. Keep it clean, or take it elsewhere. Does this mean sensitive topics cannot be discussed? No – but have care, as with any forum here on NS, with how you handle it.

  • These threads are not a blog, or a stage for you to constantly play out your personal dramas – do not treat them like one. Which is not to say folks can’t ask how one another is doing, offer a shoulder now and then, or give some encouragement. Life happens – and it’s nice to have folks you can talk to about it. Just keep in mind that some things are more appropriate to continue discussing in other places.

  • Each chat thread will be locked, and linked to after reaching around 500 pages. Please do not try to race and fill up those 500 pages. These are not designed for competition in mind, just discussion between players on whatever it is that’s on their minds at the time (so long as it is within the site rules.) Please, don’t do it.

  • This extra sentence was added during reincarnation eighty-six by Blaat and he wonders when another mod will notice it.
  • A mod did notice after a while, but decided what the heck, two can play this game. And as of 90, three have.
  • No, this does not mean everyone can run out and create their own chat threads. Please do not go out and make your own. We still have to moderate things, and that's one of the reasons that chat threads are difficult - they move fast. Too many, and we'll drown. I hate drowning.

  • Title for the thread: If you’ve got some ideas or preferences, let me know – I’ll edit it in to better suit the locals.

So there you go – a thread you can go to and not get yelled at for chatting, or going off topic. Hope you can enjoy, folks!

For those asking about How To Self-Moderate:

1: Ask or remind politely if spamming or inappropriate posting takes place.

2: If it isn't egregious, let it go.

3: If it is, and the polite request/reminder goes ignored, report it here.

4: Do not hijack the entire thread by getting into a prolonged argument over it.

5: Remember that the rules of the thread are really no different from the rest of the forums, save TET is intended as a chat thread, and thus, the ideas of 'spamming' and such are somewhat relaxed. Don't be overly-uptight when attempting to help keep things clean.

6: No one is to consider themselves the security officers of TET - while we encourage and appreciate player participation in leading by example, and gently reminding others to keep things on track, the Moderators are the 'arbiters of thread justice' and players have no authority, perceived or otherwise outside their OP rights in the RP forums.

7: Be excellent to one another. A reminder of the need for better behavior ought to be delivered with this in mind, and with the end goal of keeping the thread clean, and fun for all. Not to impose opinions or preferences on your fellow posters. Remind as you would like to be reminded, keep it civil.

Hallo.

Finally.

Thank you, thank you everybody. It has always been a personal dream of mine, to accept this high honor, as first poster on a TET thread. To see this dream realized, to say the least, is a very emotional moment for me. And I could't do it without all of you. Firstly, I would like to thank Dread Lady Nathicana, for posting this TET thread, such that I could comment on it, and receive this honor in the first place. Thank you Dread, that meant a lot to me. Next, I would like thank Max Barry, for creating nationstates.net ten long year, and along with it, creating the forum. Thank you a lot Max Barry, I couldn't have done it without you. But, first and foremost, I would like to thank my friends and family, who, throughout all my times of trouble, provided me with the support I needed to persevere, to realize that all my troubles with nothing more than temporary obstacles in my path to greatness, and to succeed. They made me realize what mattered to me most, and the importance of dedication, and hard work to achieve my goals. If it wouldn't for them, I never would have made it here in the first place. Thank you, all of you.
Now, Let us begin the celebration. I shall now commence, with the ceremonial opening of the thread. Everyone ready? Good.

And now, as have done my predecessors before me, and my predecessors' predecessors, and my predecessors' processors' predecessors, I utter that timeless phrase, that bastion of firmness, of resoluteness, of single-minded devotion, officially inaugurating, and validating the thread's entire existence.

Second.
