You can see it on the sidebar on the main page.
Let us know what you think about them.
I like these rules. Maybe add something about adhering to applicable law.
In my experience(*): the stricter the rules, the easier it becomes for trolls to skirt them, the more admin time is abused. These rules look fine for now.
(*) I have been an admin of a fairly large online community and survived more than a handful of troll invasions.
Why not just add a clause that “admins can remove any content they see fit without warning” as a catch-all for any loopholes that pop up?
I think site wide rules should go in its own separate page with a link to it in the header and/or footer. That way we can expand on the rules and generally add more details about this instance’s content policies without taking up too much space in the front page.
No NSFW content.
No NSFW content.
Right, wanted to change that to “no porn”. Fixed.
What would count as porn in this context? Technically porn would include not just sexual activity but anything primarily meant to cause arousal in at least some people.
I am be happy with a broad definition of porn (as in anything meant to be sexual) being banned honestly.
Yeah its a bit tricky and we will probably have to see on a case by case basis. My opinion is that non-sexual nudity is fine (we dont want to end up like Facebook and ban nipples or some bullshit like that).
Just to be clear, Lemmy’s definition of porn includes non-image sexual content right? I definitely think those should not be allowed either and many jurisdictions treat it as porn all the same.
Not sure, its something thats worth discussing. For me its not about legality, but mainly that I dont want to moderate that kind of stuff. I wouldnt consider simple nudity or erotic text as pornography so those would be fine by me.
At least ban the really gross stuff like sexualization of minors or other types of sexual exploitation/abuse.
Of course, but that’s also clearly covered under porn.
Those content can exist in forms other than images just to be clear, and all forms of them should be banned.

I think it’s a good start, but doesn’t cover all the harmful content. You should also add “no harassment of other users”, “no pedophilia”, “no stalking or doxxing” and “no advocating serious crime” just to name a few.
We were trying to keep it short, and not list every single bad thing because nobody is going to read that. The things you mentioned are definitely not allowed, and are probably covered by “be respectful”.
I still really think we should put detailed rules on a dedicated page and just link it in the sidebar and footer. That way users know exactly what’s expected of them.
At Human Connection we worked out a code of conduct, maybe this can be an inspiration:
It would be interesting to hear about experiences, what problem appeared, that the rules should fix.
Actually we have a code of conduct in the git repository, maybe we should just put a link to that in the rules.
Good idea, I’ll link that in the sidebar now.
Well that didn’t take long, for the rules to become even more restrictive than the bastion of free speech that is Reddit. Should help adoption of the fledgling platform skyrocket.
What are you talking about? These rules are extremely permissive.
I had just about finished writing a reply, when it spontaneously disappeared, and I’m not writing it again. Oh well.
Not exactly a valid argument.
Who posted an argument?
If you want freeze peach you can go somewhere else.
No shit. So will the rest of the Internet except the four softy fascists who need an even safer space than Reddit.
The rules are “no bigotry”, “be respectful”, “no porn” and “no advertising”. If you can’t even follow those basic rules then no one on Lemmy actually wants you here.
Which is fortuitous, because no one outside of the aforementioned four softy fascists is going to want to be here on Lamer Reddit either.
Basically you just want a safe space where you can be a hateful prick?
Yep, that’s exactly what I said. Also, that’s not what the term “safe space” means, but I appreciate the cute “nuh uh, you are.” A for effort or something.
The freeze peach havens, voat and gab already exist, you can go to them if you like.
Thanks for the info. And if I needed a safe space to protect my fragile little mind, I could go back to Reddit, at least they actually have users.
Feel free to announce new communities here.
Other than that, this is reserved for admin use only.
