We feel that lately, the discussions on therianthropy have become somewhat watered down, and as a result we have decided to step up our involvement in the discussion, including on Discord.
You can expect us to now care if you break the forum rules
. They also apply to Discord, please be sure that you are familiar with them.
We will no longer tolerate open discussion on the subject of politics (particularly extreme positions). This has always been the policy here on the forums and we are extending it to Discord in fullest.
We will be paying more attention to the kinds of statements that are made in regards to one's therianthropy. As you know we are generally open-minded and accept that the personal experiences of therianthropy are best defined by those that experience them, however -- lately people have been coming up with more and more fantastical stories on what they have experienced. We need to remain grounded. If you're going to make outrageous claims, be prepared to back them up. You can do so in the appropriate discussion forum
. If you cannot handle your beliefs being questioned, you may leave.
Our mods have been equipped with new superpowers. If you ignore their verbal warning, be prepared to face an immediate ban of a few days, during which time you can reconsider your position, without bothering other people around you. Short bans are at the discretion of the mod in question.
We are not working out of a strict rulebook, the mod may rely on their own judgment when determining their course of action. If you are doing something that is disruptive or is bothering other people, you could be banned.
We are doing all of this for the benefit of our community and to ensure that Therian Guide continues to be the best resource for learning about Therianthropy on the Internet.
Thank you for understanding.
