From the MODERATOR - Group rules
- Hi all,
In addition to the post you get from Bryan for the state of pcgen, we
also have the following rules for the group.
By default people have pretty much been adhering anyhow, but please
note the new section on asking for LST help on products that PCGEN do
not have permission for and a new note on virus warnings.
Please direct all queries to myself on these guidelines 8-). Yes
we'll be merging the 2 documents soon ;p.
Because PCGEN is an e-mail community dedicated to the (but always
fun) discussion of PCGEN product, there are some
ground rules which everyone needs to follow. Please read the
following document carefully, or you will be jumped on
by the soft pawed one!
This list is for the discussion of all aspects of the PCGEN
software. Please do not send any off-topic or
otherwise unrelated posts to the PCGEN list. Please note there is a
seperate list for LST file discussions
(although those posts are welcome here) and a seperate list for XML
discussions (please keep XML reklated posts
Please when discussing work on LST files for products we do not have
permission for (but you are working on
personally) do NOT mention the specific details. Ask for help
on "Feat foo that adds 4 to the BAB", not "Feat
xavier from <non permission source>"
Our hope is that this list will stay as community of people willing
to share thoughts and ideas about various
aspects of PCGEN; Criticism and feedback on specific parts of PCGEN
and any general issues with PCGEN is very
appropriate for this list and actively encouraged - provided such
feedback is well thought-out, rational, and
promotes an open discussion of the issue in question. Although this
list is essentially administered by those
involved in the PCGEN project, posters will not be removed from the
list or blacklisted simply because they are
critical of a part of PCGEN or PCGEN in general.
An exception to this occurs in relations to trolling, flaming and
personal attacks. Simply put, trolling, flaming
and personal attacks ARE NOT tolerated on the PCGEN list. Posters who
troll, flame or attack others will be placed
on REVIEW or removed from the list if such activity continues.
Wherever possible, the soft pawed one and/or other
moderators will intervene and try to nip flame wars in the bud before
they spiral out of control.
A few definitions:
Trolling: posting messages designed to draw an angry response from
those who read it
Flame: a sarcastic, biting message, which often attacks the
intelligence, education and/or perceptiveness of others
and is usually designed to draw an angry response from them
Personal attack: A negative comment in a discussion, which is
directed at/or dealing with a person or persons
instead of the issue at hand
Remember that everyone on the list comes from a different background.
We have engineers, lawyers, college students,
and high school-age members who post on a variety of topics. Please
respect the fact that their opinions might be
different from yours and move on.
In addition, please adhere to the following rules of etiquette:
1) Please refrain from using profanity and other insulting language
in your posts. This is to include starring out
of letters or other forms of self-censorship.
2) When responding to a post, make sure to quote only what is
required. In general, do not quote more than you
3) Do not make "me too" posts.
4) If a post begins to move off of its original topic, PLEASE GIVE
IT A NEW SUBJECT. (This is an especially
important rule as the PCGEN staff who are on the list have a limited
amount of time in which to read the messages
sent to it.)
5) Please keep your sig files reasonable in length. Five to six lines
is considered reasonable.
6) Please do not post virus warnings without the prior approval of
the list staff.
