OSM Announcement Thread

In this thread, OSM moderators will occasionally post announcements about moderating activities going on in the forum.  Types of announcements include +QPs handed out, disciplinary actions and warnings, and thread maintenance (closings, transfers, and so forth).  

Posting in this thread is restricted to moderators and system administrators only, so that it does not become cluttered by off-topic discussion.  If you have a comment about an announcement, please send a private message to one of the OSM moderators and the Mod-Squad will take any appropriate action, or you may petition a moderator to open the Policy Discussion Thread for a short discussion period.  

For your convenience, announcements will be color coded.  

BLUE FONT will pertain to +QP awards.
RED FONT will pertain to disciplinary actions.
GREEN FONT will pertain to thread management and other general announcements.

New OSM Informational Threads Open

The first announcement, obviously, is the revealing of three new threads, one of which is this one.

A new OSM Posting Guidelines and Information Thread outlines general information about how QPs are awarded, what is considered a violation of the CoC and new procedures for how feedback will be handled.  These new policies also include a Policy Discussion Thread and an Announcement Thread (which you are reading now).

Please have a read of this material and feel free to post your thoughts in the Policy Discussion Thread (before the duration of discussion end), if you feel so inclined.

A warning has been issued to Bloodsucker for provocation and aggravation here.

6) NO provocation or aggravation.
Provocation is unfriendly behavior that causes anger or resentment from others. Aggravation is causing, continuing or increasing irritation or trouble. This includes being a detriment to the peacekeeping of the forums.
Each member is solely responsible for their own conduct - no amount of provocation or aggravation from someone else will justify the action of breaking the rules. Instead of responding to a member who has offended you, alert a moderator about this situation and let them deal with it, keeping you out of trouble.

Another reminder to everyone:

If you cannot find a polite, productive way to respond to your fellow HC members on a specific topic, then I encourage you to find some other thread in which to participate.

And in other news:

A +QP awarded to gnomes2169 for his personal story here.

Thanks to Polyglot for the suggestion, although it was pretty much inevitable anyway.

A warning has been issued to Zenofex for posting insults here.  This is Zenofex's second warning.

From the code of conduct:

1) NO insults, abuse, racism or sexism.
Insult is a remark that undermines another person. A simple way to avoid insulting people is to discuss their actions and opinions rather than their personality. For example: instead of saying who they are ("you suck" or "you are an idiot") say what you think about their opinions/actions and why ("Your post about me is wrong because I never said that heroes 4 is a bad game" or "I disagree with your opinion because centaurs have more hit points than gnolls"). This simple rephrasing strategy can resolve many conflicts and fights before they even happen, both online and in life.

A warning has been issued to idontcare for his recent posts (now deleted) in the what is love thread.

A reminder from the Code of Conduct:
1) NO insults, abuse, racism or sexism.
Insult is a remark that undermines another person. A simple way to avoid insulting people is to discuss their actions and opinions rather than their personality. For example: instead of saying who they are ("you suck" or "you are an idiot") say what you think about their opinions/actions and why ("Your post about me is wrong because I never said that heroes 4 is a bad game" or "I disagree with your opinion because centaurs have more hit points than gnolls"). This simple rephrasing strategy can resolve many conflicts and fights before they even happen, both online and in life.
Racism is any remark that associates negativity with a person or group of people based on their nationality, ethnicity, religion, race, place of origin, or skin color. Sexism is any remark that associates negativity with a person or group of people based on their gender or sexual orientation.

4) NO spam, junk posts, thread killing, flooding or flaming.
Junk post is a post that fails to address the topic of discussion and fails to provide intellectual or humorous stimulation, or put simply: off topic, not interesting, not funny. Thread killing is making offtopic comments in a thread in a way that discourages other posters from continuing their serious discussion. Flooding is creating several threads in a short amount of time. Spam is creating several replies that contain one or two sentences in a short amount of time. Junk posts, thread killing and spam are allowed in the Volcanic Wastelands forum (see Volcanic Wastelands rules here). Creating a second username in order to surpass the daily post limit or to spam/flood is prohibited.
Threads abusing any glitches found in HC will be penalized, if you spot a glitch please report it in the Turban Tribunal. Threads which are created simply to be an eyesore or cause significant lag for members trying to view them will be penalized. This includes - massive quoting, filling the posting box with smilies / bb code, and stretching posts with either long strings of text or enormous photos.

A -QP penalty was applied to Kipshasz for his insulting post here.

Kipshasz is receiving a penalty because this is a repeat violation for the same offense (penalties another forum). Insulting individuals or entire ethnic/relgious groups is against the Code of Conduct.  Please see rule number one (quoted in the post above). In the future, please try to post in a more constructive, less insulting manner.

(Note: the offending post has been removed.)

The Islamization of Europe thread has been cleaned (in relation to the above penalty) and reopened.

Please stay on topic and post within the guidelines set forth in the Code of Conduct.

-QP penalties have been applied to both Kipshasz and BrennusWhiskey for continuing to insult each other in the Ukraine thread.

I'm serious, guys. I have no tolerance for this constant fighting between you two any more. I will not hesitate to continue to penalize you for further insults against each other, no matter how minor. Before too long, you will both find your flood protect preventing you from posting at all.

I find it hard to believe you are not aware of the rules by now, but please READ the Code of Conduct and try to follow it. The #1 rule is respect, and I see NONE of that from either one of you.

Awarded +QPs to both Fred and Locksley in the Earth Day thread.

Nice posting, you two.

Locksley had a number of posts that are probably +QP-worthy in that thread. I wish you'd visit more often, Locksley. The OSM could use more consistently thoughtful posters like you.

(EDIT: And Fred, welcome to promising status! Keep up the great contributions. )

A warning is being issued to Stevie for recent posting behavior in the 9 11 Ten Years Later thread:

At Heroes Community we have a policy of conduct that is based on mutual respect for fellow posters. This policy does not only apply when you feel like it, or only when you are directing posts toward people with whom you share common viewpoints. It applies to every post made on this forum.

Your posts over the last few days, in particular in the 9/11 thread, have been very disrespectful toward other community members, and in several cases are directly against the Code of Conduct. Specific rules broken include:

Quote:
1) NO insults, abuse, racism or sexism.

You have already been warned informally for this kind of behavior in other threads. Now you are being warned formally. Further infractions will result in penalties and/or silencing.

This kind of posting behavior makes participating in the OSM discussions unpleasant for everyone. So, please read the Code of Conduct and adjust your posting style. Otherwise, you will find your posting privileges here restricted.

TO EVERYONE ELSE:

We have had a number of abusive conversations going on in the OSM lately, both in the above-mentioned thread as well as the Ukraine thread. This is supposed to be a place to come and share ideas on a diverse range of topics, not a place to ridicule or insult people who don't agree with you. I've already had to close the Ukraine thread 3 times to clean it up and give people a chance to cool off. If necessary I will start closing threads for longer periods of time. I'd really rather not have to do that, though, so please take time to consider whether your words are respectful and unlikely to cause resentment in other posters before you hit the submit button.

Thanks.

(The 9/11 Thread will remain closed for 24 hours while I decide what, if anything, I want to do about cleaning it up.)
