It sometimes happens that forumites get in to a heated exchange regarding certain topics. This can get out of hand, with posts flying around, and people angering each other more and more.

During one of these situations a forumite (rusky) once suggested that they all leave this topic for 24 hours, before continuing the debate. The idea was not to stop the discussion, but to allow all to calm down a bit, before they continued.

The Moderators have decided to formally adopt this suggestion as a tool.

Once the "24 HOUR RULE" is invoked, the following post will be added to the specific thread.


Quote:
24 HOUR RULE

All posts on this topic have been halted, to give all forumites the opportunity to calm down and reflect on this issue. This thread will be opened for further discussion at around ..... (date and time here). No forumite will be allowed to start a similar thread, nor continue this discussion on another thread for 24 hours.


The thread will be locked, and no one will be allowed to start a similar thread.

Please adhere to this rule, and help us keep the SANParks Forums a positive place, where we respect each others right to an opinion and treat each other with dignity and respect.

The Mod team
