I posted this on the awareness thread in DCG yesterday, I think it needs an airing in here too

DCG became "work safe" after the infamous paddling pool incident and The Vault was created.  The mods were being bombarded with requests to remove swear words etc from titles and from what I understand this has more or less stopped.  DCG is the only work safe board at GB.  By that it means we dont want swearing or the graphic detail.

If you are not supposed to be surfing the net from where you are, then maybe you shouldn't be here, personally I tend to agree with Darlin'.  However, this is the situation I have inherited.

I'm new here and from reading this thread and a few others and the content of my inbox I think lots of people are feeling a bit insecure.  What sweeping changes am I going to make now that I'm the queen of this alternate universe ;)?  Am I going to be a despot :D?  Am I going to move all the goalposts?

There are going to be some changes - these were decided by those who came before me, I am simply putting them in to action.  They are about making sure that the volunteers who put time and effort in to this place dont get overworked and that it stays safe and fun and free :D 8)

We don't know each other, we will get to know each other.  The moderators are in the same position, they are getting to know me too, so give them a break.  Mummy leaving is a huge change for everyone.  I'm not planning to chat on the boards but I do read them and I will be joining in from time to time, like now :D 

While someone once wrote a whole book without the letter "e" I can't imagine a world where we ban particular words.  I think that the intent and content is what counts, everyone has common sense and I see members reminding each other of the rules all the time.  It makes moderating a lot easier.

I will say it again, the Mods are volunteers (the contents of our inboxes make intersting reading) and we sometimes make decisions based on what we have in our inbox - like the creation of the Vault - or because we think rules have been re-interpreted.  In this case they haven't.

We can discuss the news, mooncups, sexual violence, sex selection, whatever... but having discussions about sex as in sexual activity with graphic detail belongs in the Vault or Dungeon.  Inuendo is fine too (think about the Terry Wogan show at breakfast time I listen on the way to work :-[), but if it looks like the posts are about to get more graphic then the moderators will move them.

Sapphire

So while this isn't a work safe area, members don't have a licence to post what they want and I don't want to see chat that really belongs in the Dungeon or Vault.

If you want this kind of chat, maybe start a similar thread in one of those areas :D

i'm not mad about it, but i'm mildly irritated that i can't eat rich food and have lots of lovely bubbly and other alcoholic beverages without feeling slightly bleh the next day. it's rude!

Hearing of the government's shoddy treatment of survivors, mismanagement of the fund & closing down of the charity and hearing the ex-wife's interview on Sky News  >:(
