This is an official discussions announcement to let you all know that Guideline 12 has been amended extensively after much discussion. If you have any problems with this, let us know.
”12. Posts must encourage meaningful discussion and solicit response from other users. “Meaningful discussion” is characterized as thought- provoking, insightful and conducive to the expression of others’ opinions/ ideas.
Recommendation: Include questions in your post. Ask for feedback, thoughts, contrary opinions, etc. Without an inquiry, posts are unlikely to generate meaningful discussion. The more focused the questions, the better.
1) Simply posting a meme, joke, pun or any other static material does not qualify as meaningful discussion. This community is grounded in interaction and user connection, not one-way exhibition.
2) Educational posts are always welcomed! Posts in this category actively seek to explain or raise awareness to characters, events, etc. Feedback is inherent to learning, thus educational posts naturally insight some level of discussion and are acceptable.
Posts that do not adhere to the aforementioned disclaimers or fail to qualify as “meaningful discussion” as defined above are subject to immediate lock down or deletion. A warning MAY be provided, but it is NOT REQUIRED prior to post termination.”
