It's been some time since the JCC rules were thoroughly reviewed and updated, and I'm asking if its worth putting some effort in now to update the published rules to reflect the position of the current JCC mod team. Personally, I'm someone who likes to have a set of rules to adhere to, however I'm also extremely open to updating and adjusting rules to create the best possible posting environment. What I don't like are a set of rules which people don't follow - you either need to follow the rules, or change the rules where there is reason to do so. What you can't do, is have a set of rules, and then ignore or not follow them. It does bother me when what appear to be clear-cut, well defined rules are ignored by the people specifically put there to uphold them. So I feel its worth perhaps going through the published set of rules and policies and deciding if they still have bearing on the current posting environment. Just a couple of specific recent examples I'm referring to, so you get an idea:- WUL threads. It clearly states in II.D. of the JCC rules that "Add me to your Watched User List" threads are not allowed., yet when someone started such a thread it was left unlocked by the JCC mods (worse still, a number of mods posted in it), and when pointed out it was against the published rules the JCC mods claimed it was more of a "guideline" than a rule. Do we need a policy update here? Profanity on the boards. It's use of profanity that really spurred me to write this thread. Personally I'm against the use of any profanity - I simply think it isn't needed to express an opinion. The JCC rules (and infact boardwide rules) indicate that no profanity is allowed here. However, some profanity is being left unedited by JCC mods, even after it has been pointed out to them (but interestingly was subsequently removed by a non-JCC mod). So, do the rules need updating here? Profanity off the boards. It's a grey area when linking to offsite sources which contain profanity - what is the current policy as I struggle to see one in the published rules. I ask because recently a link was left unedited after being reviewed by a JCC mod which contained extreme profanity (the S and F words). The post was actually edited for another reason, but the link left without indication of the content of the link - ie I could understand a mod edited in "this link has some profanity", but I don't really think it is ok to leave the link with no warning what so ever. Do we need a policy update here? I've only brought up a couple of examples, and I'm not looking for you to focus specifically on the ones I've raised, I'm more asking the overall rules and policies of the JCC need updating so the people new to the forum know exactly what is acceptable posting.
