Mod post: community rules poll

We now have over 5,000 members. New rules (the ones promised, oh, last summer) are coming soon. However, there's probably a few issues that need to be cleared up.

For one thing, bad_service has absolutely no policy on NSFW content, unless one of current rules can be applied (ie., NSFW content aimed to troll or flamebait). I also don't really have plans to institute any policy on such content in the new rules, unless there's a community demand for one.

There's also no written policy on the kind of comments that could be made on blatant rule-breaking posts. I'm sure a few of you have noticed that once the moderators have banned a rule-breaker and abandoned a post without deleting it, it's pretty much an assumed free-for-all. A clear, written policy may be desired.

In addition, there's probably something we've missed thinking about, and this is your opportunity to criticize, comment, or make suggestions to us. Any ideas, polite messages of loathing or hatred, or what-not can be posted here. Also, if you have any (safe for work) moderator themed icons or macros, please post them here. Especially if there are any ones friendlier than this one I'm using, which doesn't really apply to all situations.

This poll is closed.
