Rules of Conduct edit - "Images"

Recommended Posts

We wanted to make everyone aware of an edit that will be implemented next week to this section of the Rules of Conduct. This is not a new rule, but an edit to further clarify the existing rule. 

 

Current version: 

  • Images: Posting single images or animated .gifs that are not on-topic with the discussion or without any substantive accompanying text is not allowed. Images will be removed and users may be disciplined for repeated offenses. Please note that using images to support your discussion is fine as long as the images follow the forum rules (no adult content, politics, religion, defamation, trolling, personal attacks, racism, etc.). Images must be no larger than 400 pixels x 400 pixels.

Upcoming change (red text): 

 

  • Images: Posting single images or animated .gifs that are not on-topic with the discussion or without any substantive accompanying text is not allowed. (Quotes of previous posts are not ‘substantive content’.) Images may be removed and users may be disciplined for repeated offenses. Please note that using images to support your discussion is fine as long as the images follow the forum rules (no adult content, politics, religion, defamation, trolling, personal attacks, racism, etc.). Images must be no larger than 400 pixels x 400 pixels.  

Reason for the change: 
- Clarifying what "substantive content" is: Many people seemed to misunderstand the rule, thinking that having a quote in their post was enough to avoid the "no image only" policy.  

- Clarifying that not all improperly posted images will be removed -  Because they don't always need to be deleted.

Note: This change has now been implemented into the Rules of Conduct.

Wow. So the people who are reporting these posts are creating so much work for the moderators, that a simple thing as quoting a post and replying with a picture is getting the people pressing report all in an uproar that you guys need to clarify?

 

Just wow.

 

That or they simply noticed that people were posting images without substantive content, and also noticed that when they removed some of those posts people would rage about unfair treatment because some other images were not removed.
