The Administration has made several changes to the JCF Rules owing primarily to policies necessitated by the Xenforo software, the site owner, and community feedback. These changes are part of an ongoing project by the Administration to update the various rules posts (Such as the disallowed word list, FAQ, etc.) to bring them in line with the current state of affairs. The revisions, already implemented, are publicly viewable here: http://boards.theforce.net/threads/rules-of-the-jedi-council-forums.27141421/ Affected areas include: [ul][li]A rule concerning hate speech has been added to acceptable posting guidelines. This is a first step in addressing concerns over sexism in the boards at large, but hopefully not the last one. The new guidelines concern posts which attack a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender identity, ethnic origin, religious affiliation or lack thereof, race, disability, genetic attribute, or sexual orientation, and should be viewed as an attempt to more easily enforce TOS Clause 2.[/li] [li]Rules regarding advertising and competitor websites, which have been enforced in compliance with edicts from the site owner, have been added, to provide more clarity. This is probably the second biggest area of revision.[/li] [li]Rules concerning spoiler content in avatars have been added.[/li] [li]Rules concerning signatures have been updated to current standards, including advertising.[/li] [li]Rules concerning filesharing and revealing private information have been updated to be more hip. No, really, we had a Kazaa reference in the old draft. Now we're down with the Facetweets and the Vinechats.[/li] [li]Links have been fixed.[/li] [li]Image tag code guidelines have been fixed.[/li] [li]Miscellaneous minor tweaks concerning wording and formatting.[/li][/ul] We will keep you posted on further revisions to other rules and announcements pages as they are implemented. Questions concerning new guidelines can be asked here.
