Attention All Mites

Unread postby Duke Ellieton » Thu Jul 19, 2012 8:40 pm

Hi All,

We all feel strongly about the topics discussed in the Indaba forum and things do get heated and many posts are reported.

Robust debate and discussion is welcomed but please stay on topic and refrain from personal attacks even in a veiled form. Innuendos will not be tolerated, nor will members 'playing mod'. If you are unhappy about the content of a post, follow the correct channels and report the post.

We also feel that if any organizations/causes are promoted on the forum then people promoting causes/organizations will get questions on their causes/organizations.

We will be strict in implemeting the rules but will always look at the total picture and ask all mites to pay particular attention to Rules 11 and 13

Rule 11:
We are striving to create a friendly forum that is open to people of all ages and convictions. Keep the tone of your message or personal message (PM) civil. Personal attacks, cursing, abrasive, rude or vulgar language, pornography, adult jokes, hate speech, racism, sexism, insulting or generalizing about other cultures, provoking mudslinging, religious or political exchange, scolding, bullying, berating, making fun of, or otherwise harassing of other members online will not be tolerated! In addition, if you have nothing good to say, don't say it! Likewise, note that any abuse directed at the forum Moderators, or SANParks personnel, will not be tolerated. For anyone who is treated with disrespect from a Moderator, please email and we will investigate further. If you have issues with other forum members, please raise them with the Moderators directly. When you post, always bear in mind: Diverse opinions are welcome. Attacks are not!

Rule 13:
Trolling, feeding the trolls, speculation, flaming or toxic behaviour (toxic behaviour is when members don't break rules in an obvious manner, but insinuate and provoke with vague statements that sound polite and well intended) will not be tolerated.

We request for common sense to prevail and discussions to be held in a civil manner regardless of any viewpoint on a subject matter and thank you all for your cooperation .

The Mods Team.
