Wicca Light is a Forum community area (message board, flashchat, portal, etc.) is not a democracy, at best it is a benevolent dictatorship.

Wicca Light:
Hosts have set the rules below for community areas. Make sure you are familiar with them. Read them daily to remind yourself of them if you have to, because the hosts have given the community's staff the power to limit or deny access to those who insist on violating them.

Do not be a jackass.
Do not behave in a manner the staff or hosts might consider rude or annoying (e.g. making personal attacks, arguing mod calls, advertising without approval, trying to moderate other members, etc.)
Post legibly (e.g. use short paragraphs separated by blank lines, don't write in "netspeak", quote a small part of the message you are replying to, etc.)
You permanently and irrevocably grant Wicca Light: A Pagan Forum the right to use anything you post.
Our detailed rules and guidelines really just expand on these obvious basics. You still need to read the full rules, however -- as those full rules are the rules staff enforces.

THE "DO NOT" RULES:


• DO NOT make personal attacks (name calling, hostile remarks, accusations, etc.). In discussion, attack ideas and opinions, not the people who hold them. Note that an attack on your ideas and beliefs are not considered a personal attack under our rules even if you identify so closely with your beliefs and ideas that you personally consider an attack on those beliefs or ideas to be an attack on you.
• DO NOT make blanket condemnations of peoples, cultures, or religions.
• DO NOT post or attach content that is libelous, defamatory, pornographic, harassing, threatening, or hateful (racially, ethnically, or religiously).
• DO NOT post advertisements or event announcements (commercial or non-commercial) without obtaining prior approval for the specific item from a Host or Senior Staff member.
• DO NOT argue with, comment on, complain about, criticize, or otherwise discuss staff decisions on rules issues in public in community areas. If you think a decision that directly affects you is incorrect, you may make an appeal in private in accordance with our Moderation.
• DO NOT attempt to moderate other members. Leave the moderating to the forum staff and hosts. If you believe a forum post violates the rules in a major way, you may bring that post to the attention of the forum staff by reporting that message. You can bring non-forum problems to the attention of staff by emailing a staff member via their profile.
• DO NOT register multiple accounts without permission from the hosts.
• DO NOT impersonate other members or otherwise pretend to be someone you are not.


THE "DO" RULES:
• DO remember to use the "Reply/Quote" button even when using the quick reply feature as this inserts links and text that helps others follow the flow of conversation.
• DO edit quoted material in your replies to the minimum needed.
• DO write in a "normal writing" style. Capitalize the first word of your sentences. Use proper punctuation. Write in short paragraphs and place a blank line between paragraphs (hit return twice). Please do not WRITE IN ALL CAPITALS, in eLiTe LeTtErS, or in odd fonts and colors. Please do not use "Netspeak" (e.g. R U Wiccan) as our community areas are not a cell phone.
• DO be tolerant of religions and opinions that differ from your own. You do not have to agree with them or support them, but you must be tolerant of those who express them. Others have as much right to hold and express their views as you do to hold and express yours.
• DO follow our Avatar and Signature Guidelines.
• DO try to post new topics on the correct board.
• DO remember that other members of Wicca Light are real people just like you with rights and feelings -- treat them as real people even when engaged in heated debate.
• DO remember that you are not your opinions and beliefs. An attack on your opinions and beliefs in debate is not an attack on you. If attacks on your opinions and beliefs seem like personal attacks to you, you will probably want to bow out of topics that turn into heated discussions or debates.
• DO try to avoid posting already posted information in "pile-ons." If you see a thread where someone has posted obvious incorrect information on hot button issues and there are a lot of posts after that message, please read ahead before posting to avoid posting the 20th reply with basically the same information (as this tends to make the member with the incorrect information think people are ganging up on them).
• DO realize that some boards have special rules that apply only to that board and follow those rules when posting on that board -- such rules will be in a clearly labeled sticky post on the board they apply to.
• DO follow instructions/suggestions from staff members and hosts about how to post and/or behave on Wicca Light (quoting, formatting messages, etc.)..
• DO expect to be asked for sources to support any unusual factual claims you may make. If you chose to back those claims with poor sources (wikipedia and other encyclopedias, dictionaries, popular press books written by non-experts, out-of-date academic books, etc.), do not be surprised where they are not considered convincing, let alone authoritative.


THE RUDE AND ANNOYING RULE:

Please do not engage in annoying or excessively rude behavior in the community areas. Annoying and rude behavior includes (but is not limited to):
• Editing your messages to significantly change the content after a message can reasonably be assumed to have been read by others (which is 2 or 3 minutes after posting). This is particularly true if the message has already been replied to.
• Posting the same message to multiple topics or boards.
• Trolling (posting material just to stir up trouble or start flame wars)
• Proselytizing for any religion (whether Pagan or not).
• Making overly broad "All Pagans believe..." or "All Pagans do..." type statements. Except in the most trivial cases (e.g. "All Living Pagans need to drink water"), such claims are almost always false.
• Demanding that others prove your claims wrong instead of supporting those claims with evidence they are correct.
• Attacking a post based on typos, poor spelling, or poor grammar, instead of debating its content. Our message board is more akin to a spoken conversation with people from many countries than it is to a term paper.
• Oversharing personal details -- posting the intimate details of your life in inappropriate threads.
• Use of gratuitous offensive language. We are a PG-13 forum.
• Using a offensive or inappropriate username, name, custom title, avatar, signature, etc.
• Failing to properly attribute quoted sources.
• Having your account set to a false or out of date email address.
• Hacking or attempting to hack any part of Wicca Light.


THE "MISCELLANEOUS" RULES:

• The Hosts reserve the right to act arbitrarily (i.e. without obvious cause or explanation) if they consider it necessary. This includes deleting any topic or post, editing any message, imposing new or special rules, changing any member's membergroup or otherwise limiting/expanding any member's privileges within the community, or banning any member. There is no appeal from a Host decision.
• The Senior Staff reserve the right to moderate discussions even if there are no rules violations to preserve the quality of the discussion -- this includes imposing special rules on the discussion or asking unduly upset (or unruly) members to leave the discussion.
• Overlooked rules violations do not set a precedent. The fact that a violation was accidentally overlooked does not mean it is suddenly okay to violate that rule.
• Wicca Light is a discussion and debate board devoted to critical thinking. Beliefs and ideas that may be accepted with little question on some other boards will likely be strongly questioned here. While we ask our more experienced members to be polite in refuting incorrect information and dodgy ideas, Wicca Light is devoted to critical thinking, so expect to see incorrect information and ideas mercilessly (and often bluntly) shot down and be aware that if there are likely mundane explanations for something, they are going to preferred to supernatural explanations. If this is unacceptable to you, chances are that this forum is not the message board for you.
• We do not delete accounts, so please do not ask to have your account deleted. Accounts are never deleted as doing so would completely disrupt every topic the account holder ever participated in. If you wish to leave the board, just go to your profile and turn off all your board and topic subscriptions and set your account to block email from users and announcements.


CONSEQUENCES OF COMMUNITY RULE VIOLATIONS

Standard consequences for violating community rules include:
• Public "Mod Hat On" Warning issued by a Staff Member
• Editing or deletion of the offending post
• Being put on "post moderation" (a staff member has to approve each of your posts before they appear on the board)
• Being gagged (unable to post) for a period of time
• Being banned from community areas for a period of time
• Loss of privileges to use certain community areas or features
• Permanent ban

With the approval of a Host, other consequences are possible in specific situations.
