We’re making two changes to the forum.
The first change is a clarification on the forum guidelines for what is allowed. Which as a reminder are
We’ll be adding a line that gets at the idea of no political, social or religious discussions. We don’t have the final wording but that is the direction of what will be added.
The second change is a new set of features for you and for moderators to help with following those guidelines. Some features include comment locking and a better reporting system.
Here’s the reason for the changes.
BGA needs to be a place to discuss board games that everyone is welcome to. Over the past few months it hasn’t felt like that is true for some members. I’m sorry for not addressing this earlier but today is certainly better than tomorrow.
We’re expecting to introduce the changes over the next few days and will make a full announcement sharing everything once complete as well.
With regards to any comments or posts that don’t meet these clarified guidelines, we’ll be going through and taking action on them and talking to the authors as well individually.
If you’d like to talk through your thoughts regarding these upcoming changes please feel free to ask questions and, if you’d like, you can do so privately by messaging me as well.
