    my question is, are these rules that were kept up before, but weren't written down, or is there something that was tolerated before that will not be tolerated?

    Sarah

    I tried to make this post as unconfusing as possible, but I doubt it made sense...:o

    That's what I say about all my posts. And everything I say in real life for that matter.

    I explained that in a previous post. The old forum had guidelines, but we never transferred them. We clarified a few and added some in-depth concerns that members have been having (excess lines used in posts etc).

    So most of this isn't new. They are regs that MC has had all along - just clarified. And if you cross the line you get smacked with a rubber chicken or get on the list for a drive by muffining!

    Seriously, the regulations are not a big deal. It's really difficult to get the boot from MC. Nobody really wants that. It's basically about mutual respect and treating others the way you'd want to be treated. You of all people probably don't need to worry about it. ;)

    Now, what exactly is meant by "false information?"

    Alot of times we'll say something false just jokingly. Like, recently one member jokingly said that Sweetums was controlled by barb wire. Now, it's obviously not true, but, how far is too far?

    Does "I have jello in my ear" count as false information?

    I think we are getting off topic.

    I wonder what would happen if I clicked Beauregard's Repot to moderator button?

    Regarding going off topic. It's okay to nudge your way out a little bit if you get back on, but what if the question has been posted and the full answer has been given? Can we just go ahead and do what we do best?! LOL!!

    Yeah. It's just an issue of common sense. We all get off topic, but if it stays on that path too much, an alternate thread should be formed and the user can easily provide a link to it. :)

    I thought we were on topic. Isn't it possible to stay on topic and make idiots of oursevles at the same time?

    I think you just did.

    I think you would classify 'false information' as anything you write that isn't obviously a joke and could be taken seriously by other people. For instance making up news releases and posting them as fact, or like with the Palisades forum the other day - some guy said that Series 4 had arrived at his local Target and lots of people spent their hard earned spare time and money taking a trip to their local stores too.

    Basically here we rely on trust and what each other find and report for Muppety information. If hoaxes happen and they are serious ones then we'll start to question that trust a lot more and it'd probably lead to anyone but the most well known members getting heavily interogated about any news they post, and i guess that'd put them off posting any more they find later so it would lead to a bad atmosphere here and less people willing to share their info.

    My point exactly!

    I think that we all just need to use our commen sense, and everything will be fine. I mean one harmless post about Sweetums being cotroled with bull-whips is different to posting that The Jim Henson Company has just been bought by Disney. (DISCLAIMER: The Jim Henson Company has NOT been bought by Disney.)

    Same with going off topic.

    Yes, common sense is the key. As we have talked about before, it you want to make a joke, put it in the "Fun and Games" folder.

    Okay. Thanks.
