|Forum Rules & Moderation|
The purposes of this forum are:
Only one account per person is permitted! Sock-puppets and double identities are not allowed!
Tips for writing threads/posts.
Atheistic Forum will appreciate it if the following advice is followed:
The moderators of Atheistic Forum moderate the debate using this etiquette as a guideline. Moderation is primarily focused upon the way in which an argument is delivered, and not the actual argument, provided that this is not in conflict with the overall purpose of Atheistic Forum.
Moderators will take into consideration the positive contributions of members, when considering the consequences of a breach of the etiquette.
Moderation will take place using the Infraction/Warning system. It is the intention that people who contribute a lot also get a longer leash, in the case of a rare infraction.
Rulings made by the moderators are not for public debate. It is possible to ask for clarification int the sub-forum "Private", but moderators are not required to defend their decisions. Repeated complaints about the moderation will in itself be considered a breach of the etiquette.
Due to the often high traffic, and the amount of posts, it is not certain that a moderator will be aware of a given breach of the etiquette. Therefore members are welcome to report posts, by clicking on the "Report Post" button in the upper right corner of each post, or by posting in the sub-forum "Private". Do not report posts in the actual thread, or by sending a private message to a moderator.
With kind regards,
The Community Manager,
