The Rules And FAQ

The rules, at least what I've got so far:

1. This is the Pit. Flames happen. If someone says something that offends you, ignore them, offend them back, or leave. Don't complain to the mods here or to GenMay admins because your feelings were hurt. The only reason people are ejected from the Pit is clear rules violations.

2. As a lot of Pit regulars post from work, do not use images that are NSFW. If you want to provide a link, warn that the link is NSFW.

3. Debates: these are the core of the Pit. Debate threads have a few requirements:
a) The title must reflect the topic.
b) You MUST state your own opinion. Simply posting someone else's work is not enough.
4. Posting news articles and such.
a. If the link requires a login to read the article, either post a login or quote the relevant sections of the article.
b. If you post a link to an audio or video source, provide a synopsis for those who cannot view/listen.
c. Do not copy/paste more than the equivalent of a printed page. We can all click a link. Nobody wants to start on a thread that begins with five pages of text.
5. Callouts
a. The title of a calloust MUST be "Callout: <person's name>"
b. "You suck" is not a valid callout. If you've got a good reason to call someone out, share it with the class. This means providing links and/or quotes relating to the callout.
c. you don't get to decide who wins the callout. The Pit does.
d. If the target of the callout does not show, they lose. As if it matters.
6. This is not GenMay (aka spam rules)
a. No poster may have more than three threads on page 1 at a time
b. Callouts are not included in this limit. You may have no more than two callouts at once.
c. If you have three threads on the first page that were created more than two weeks ago, you may create up to two more.
d. You must contribute more than you spam. If the mods find your posts to be consistently lacking in content, you may be warned. Continued spamming will result in a KC or banning from the Pit.
7. As if it weren't obvious ( Apparently it isn't ) Moderators have final discretion on nigh on anything. If you have a problem with that, feel free to ask, and then shut the fuck up if we keep our decision.

PM Questions to Nano or Kevin.
