We wanted to take a moment and remind everyone that Scifi Imaginarium is meant to be a family-friendly place where fans of all genres can relax and feel welcome. We encourage discussion and debate, but please be aware that in order to keep that “welcoming” feeling, there are a few things that will not be tolerated. We know that the vast majority of you don’t engage in these things, but just so everyone’s clear:
– Swearing: Even if the Facebook filter doesn’t pick it up, we will when we go through the comments.
– Politics: This page is non-political. This is particularly important over the next couple of weeks, but this rule is in place year-round. You’re welcome to your views, but keep them to yourself, no matter which side of the spectrum you’re on.
– Insults: You’re welcome to argue your point, but do not personally insult other posters. This includes obscenities, but it also includes politically charged terms such as “snowflake”, “social justice warrior”, etc., whether directed at another commenter, the subject of an article, or, frankly, anyone else.
Please note that we are growing quite quickly, and with over 100K members, it’s inevitable that we will have some people who don’t know our “group culture” and need to be informed, as well as some who are just outright trolls looking for attention. Unfortunately, with a large volume of comments, we don’t have time to deliberate over every one. Offending comments will be hidden immediately, and repeat or particularly severe offenders will be banned without warning.
Sorry to sound “stern”, but in the long run everyone can have a better time if we don’t have to announce this every three months.
Thanks, and enjoy!
