General Discussion Rules
In General Discussion, we welcome casual discussion and serious debates. Here you may make threads for any form of topic (science, politics, breaking news, life, etc) as long as they encourage ideas and promote discussion. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns at any time, please do not hesitate to PM a General Discussion staff member. Thank you.
1.) AL 10 board wide rules are always in effect.
2.) Respect : General Discussion in your opinions are on public display and will be treated as such. If having your opinions, beliefs, or ideals questioned is not something you can tolerate you should not be posting them. One of the most important rules in General Discussion is displaying respect for the thread topics, and your other members at all times. GD staff wants to add that this does not mean you can’t discuss or challenge a poster’s opinion or stance on an issue; in fact you should do this. Personal insults or simply calling a member wrong are not now nor will they ever be tolerated.
To reiterate if having your opinions and beliefs challenged, sometimes heatedly, offends you DO NOT POST THEM!
3.) Spam: If at any time you spam a topic, it will be removed and you will be asked to stay on topic.
4.) No Double Posting : If you wish to add something to a recent post, please make good use of your "edit post" button. Double posting is not allowed and you will be warned for it.
5.) Flow Rule: GD allows for all ranges of discussion depending on the initial post of the topic creator please follow the flow of the opening post and topic, if the opening post is casual keep your post more casual and if the opening post is detailed and serious please follow suit with your own post. If you'd like to make a more detailed discussion of what is already a casual discussion please create a new topic on the issue.
If at any time you wish to discuss a discrepancy, or have a comment or concern about a General Discussion moderator, please PM the General Discussion Hmod, if your issue is with the decision of the GD Hmod than contact a member of the Admin team.
