These are the community guidelines for Yinz Guhyz affiliated social media accounts, subreddit, website comments, forum and Discord Server.
This is an open place for honest, civilized discussion
Keep up yer manners and be respectful! This is a public area with all ages present. Swearing sometimes is allowed, overdoing it is not. We are a shared public community resource; somewhere people can go to laugh, learn, and be free from negativity.
Let’s use these guidelines to keep this a positive place! Be respectful of your peers no matter the terms of the discussion. Disagreement doesn’t mean you get to be rude or abrasive to your peers!
Let’s make this a place where things are constantly improved upon. If a discussion is taking place think of a way to add to it. If you are unsure, think it over and come back!
We only discuss things here that are important to us, and if you are sharing your thoughts or opinions with others, we want you to care about it too. Always be respectful and nice! ESPECIALLY if you don’t agree with something a person said.
Let’s reformat how we think about open discourse.
If you disagree with something Be Cool, (hu)Man!
In the course of your time here, you may wish to open up a dialogue by disagreeing with something. Be our guest, but keep in mind to criticize ideas and not people. Personal attacks are not cool and only yield bad results for everybody involved.
- Be mean!(Call people derogatory names, insult for the sake of the insult)
- Respond to a post with a negative outlook
- Contradict to put people in their place
Instead, please provide reasonable points that improve the conversation!
You set the tone
The content on the site is for everyone; if you are a part of the discussion you are helping to build the community. The conversations we have on the Website and its affiliated channels set the tone for all of us. Please, help us build this community by engaging in interesting discussions that make this a cool place to be—while also avoiding (even pointing out to us!) those that do not.
Intelligent, positive discourse provides us invaluable brain food throughout the course of our lives. Let’s make this a place where the things we like are celebrated, and the things we don’t are worked on, or left behind.
In maintaining our community, moderators reserve the sole right to remove any content and any user account for any reason at any time. Content posted by the community must remain respectful to all parties. Moderators and site operators take no responsibility for any content posted by the community.
Keep it Respectful!
- Be civil. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech.
- Keep it clean… Don’t post anything obscene or sexually explicit. We encourage colorful language but there is a clear line between expressing oneself and being obnoxious or vulgar.
- Respect each other. Don’t harass or grief anyone, impersonate people, or expose their private information.
- Respect our Website and its channels. Don’t post spam or vandalize.
Let’s keep this a place our mothers can be proud of… or at least respect! If you are unsure about something it might be time to go back to the drawing board, but if it is right on the fence, one of us can take a look at it and give you some feedback!
It’s all coming together
Be steadfast in your commitment to us and we will do the same for you. If you make an effort to put things where they should be, it’ll make our lives easier!
- Make sure the category is correct before you start a topic!
- Keep it to one post per topic!
- Only reply if you are adding to the conversation or encouraging it!
Only post what you create
Do not post anything that doesn’t belong to you! Everybody will find out and it will never work out how you want it to.
