Hi guys,

We have been discussing about how debates are handled here and we have decided some guidelines are needed.

please note these are not ultra strict guidelines, as you all know, we are usually pretty flexible with these kinds of things.

this is what we have drawn up, any questions pease go ahead. these guidelines are liable to change during initial stages of implimentation. (we will let you know if we change it.)

-Treat others with respect. We all know about the same, just in different things. Respect must be given especially when addressing something someone else has written

-Keep to the point of the debate. Try not to stray too far from the topic at hand. Start a new thread if you need to discuss something too different

-Do not repeat points you have already made, it adds incredible length to a debate, and is considered brow beating. Periodic summaries may be allowed, but usually at the end of a debate

-Ask direct questions if you do not understand what someone is saying

-Challenging ideas and theories is encouraged in the spirit of debate, but outright debunking when lacking any credentials is frowned upon, as it is taken in the spirit of aggressive behavior.

So... question, do the administrators also have to follow this rule or can they do whatever the hell they want? :rolleyes:

it's not exactly a rule, it is guidelines to help People keep the debates constructive.

I find your question peculiar. I am curious to know why you would ask something like that.

the admin of this site made these guidelines to suit the environment we want to be in and what we want for our members, so of course the rules tally with how we intend to behave ourselves.

The guidelines above are made to avoid conflicts or quarrel arising from heated discussions. Everybody in this board is civil and gives due respect to other members so that clean discussions can be made and great conversations would be generated.

Guidelines are made to help People and not restrict them like rules do. The administrators of this board are not childish 13 year olds who would simply ban anyone who disagrees with them.
