please review the second revision of the gotVirtual Community standards. there are items that require further context, such as trolling and harassment. if there is something in the cs you dont like or causes concern, please let it be known. this is not chiselled into stone. this is a solicitation for honest feedback. the cs is of little value if it does not reflect the wishes of the community. ========================================================================= the gotVirtual community is a moderated discussion board, and topics are monitored frequently. all inhabitants are expected to abide by the gV Community Standards as a condition of participation. these community standards are meant to serve as a guideline, not as an all-inclusive list of rules. they may not address all circumstances which may trigger a gV antiVirus module or interface module to take action. these Community Standards do not limit the algorithms a module utilises, although they do define them well enough for all practical intents and purposes. inhabitants are expressly forbidden from engaging in or contributing to the following: inappropriate content child porn - child pornography or the sexualisation of a child, real or not, is explicitly forbidden. if you are in doubt it is advised to err on the side of caution. shock gore - media celebrating genuine human suffering, misery, or misfortune will be closely scrutinised. gotVirtual is not the place to post pictures or videos relating to actual suicide, road trauma, autopsies, or crime scenes/morgues and the like. pornography - legal xxx imagery may only be posted in an appropriate thread in the node designated as 'mature'. this is not, however, an invitation to spam hardcore porn into all available threads. you will be expected to be respectful of the threads intent and subject matter, no matter what the case. note: nudity of grid avatars is permitted in node 'theGrid', provided the thread is clearly designated ::nsfw:: unwanted behaviour spamming trolling (please define) mere disagreement is not trolling. harassment to be defined. avatars and signatures avatars and signatures may not contain any inappropriate content, encourage, or promote any unwanted behaviour or real life disclosure. avatars or signatures engineered specifically to annoy or to impede others use of gV are not permitted, such as strobing gifs or using an unnecessarily high number of graphics (a la big sig). avatars may not be used to 'imposter' another user. avatars and signatures may not be used to denigrate an inhabitant, or 'call out' a nemesis. real-life disclosure any disclosure of another inhabitants personal real-life identity or personal information is not welcome. that being said, please dont share your personal information with others. ========================================================================= vigorous debate of this policy is encouraged, but under no circumstances should this thread be derailed or used as a venue to deride one another. let us make this more clear: the MCP will not, under any possible circumstances, tolerate off-topic commentary or ad hominem exchanges within the threads it initiates.
