It's been a bit since we've done anything with our rules, however, due to a recent issue, we've felt we need to amend our rules to cover both ourselves and the livelihood of the site. It's unfortunate, however, this shouldn't affect you all in any real way. There have been a few little changes here and there, so please read through the rules, but the big changes are below.
Some important changes are:
We have received a lot of complaints about arguing in threads, and frankly, we are sick of it too. We don't want other users feeling uncomfortable.If you have an issue with an admin/mod ruling, or are wanting to discuss a decision in a thread further, please post here: viewforum.php?f=95 (create a new thread and mention us) any further discussion in a main thread will be removed and we will not respond.
This is in response to a users request. We feel this is fairer to you all.Removed posts will be “soft deleted” (meaning we can restore the post) for 24 hours, this means if you would like the post edited, we are able to do so. If the post is totally rule breaking, it will be removed. If you haven’t responded to our message within 1 day, the post will be deleted. We will retain screenshots.
This is our most important rule change, and it's not as scary as it sounds, I promise! This is mostly to cover us from threats, as well as this, we cannot possibly think of every single rule that could be broken, this gives us the grounds to remove something that isn't listed in our rules. Unless it's super horrible, the soft delete rule will apply, we also won't give you a warning or anything for it, just explain why we felt it should be removed. So please don't stress that we're suddenly going to grow horns and ban all y'all!Admins will never abuse their powers, however, mods and admins reserve the right to remove posts, as well as warn and ban people as they see fit, even if it does not fit one of the clearly outlined rules. We will ALWAYS chat with you first and explain our decision unless your post is extreme.
Also, our mods have requested that we remind you that linking to direct twitter accounts is not allowed unless it's to a youtuber. You MUST take a screenshot and edit out the names. If it's a video and you don't know how to screen record, please message me or @RatchetRachel and we'll record it and upload it to the Garden YT so it can be posted.
Also our mods will explain why a post has been removed, from there, if you want to contest, you MUST message us.
If you have any questions or suggestions please let us know.
