We've taken your feedback from the poll and are going to implement a new ruleset for /n/. As always, our ability to moderate is directly linked to you reporting posts you see breaking the rules. We may be modifying this ruleset further in the future as we try to tune /n/ into a place that allows the maximum amount of discussion and causes the minimal amount of trouble. If you have questions or comments, find us in irc (rizon.net #/k/) or post a thread in /sug/

--

If you find yourself prone to fits of rage, are susceptible to trolls, cannot deal with dissension, ignorance, stupidity, or other such afflictions of the internet, I advise you not to scroll down, and to instead visit one of our other lovely boards. By scrolling down you are taking your mental health into your own hands, and the staff takes no responsibility for your inevitable aneurism. You've been duly warned, enjoy your News.

Board Specific Rules for /n/:

1. Thread titles must be nonbiased and a succinct representation of what is in the article. Threads with titles that don't meet this criteria will be deleted. A link to the article is required where possible.

2. Personal Attacks are now banworthy, it is fine to disagree with the content of a post, but ad homs and tripfights will now be met with bans and post deletions, regardless of the rest of the content of the post. So watch yourselves.

3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.

Read the rules above, those are what you must abide by in black and white. If you for whatever reasons have a question on those rules, ask in /sug/ or IRC.

Someone saying "your ideas are retarded" is not a personal attack. Someone saying "you are retarded" is a personal attack. If you get baited into making a personal attack, it's still you breaking the rules, not them. If you want to complain about how the rules are enforced, do it in /sug/ or IRC, derailing threads due to rule complaints or perceived infractions will now garner you a ban. Report, do not reply, and move on.

Trip-fighting will now be met with bans and post deletions, off topic discussions of actions in previous threads not pertinent to the topic at hand will be met with bans. Stay on topic, stay impersonal, and stay within the rules. If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please see us in IRC or /sug/,

  ConcernedCitizen is drafting the official changes, but for now to limit reports I would like to outline a slight rule change:

/n/ is no longer limited to national/international news.

Anything traditionally newsworthy that impacts or potentially impacts people on the international, national, or regional level or is exceptional on the local level can have its own thread.

For local stories with no real impact - we will be crafting a Flawda thread to contain them.

Here is some food for thought:

All other rules remain in effect until further notice.

Bump to be on top of the Flawda thread.

Threads that dissolve into accusations of schilling and tripfighting will be locked. Don't do it in the flawda thread either or you'll be banned.
