The Lounge Rules

GENERAL

 

Thread titles:

  • Try to be inclusive. Everyone on ATRL should be able to contribute to the discussion. Don't go out of your way to exclude people of a certain sexuality, race, etc.
  • Don't use disruptive formatting or shock value in order to lure people in. Don't capitalize words when it's not needed.
  • Conduct:
  • Be respectful. People are entitled to their beliefs. Use arguments instead of insults, smilies and GIFs.

 

BANNED THREADS

 

The following is a list of threads that are not allowed in The Lounge (or anywhere else). This list can be expanded at any time. You can get warned or banned from The Lounge if you repeatedly create threads that are off-limits.

 

Do not post:

  • Disturbing news articles, particularly those involving children, gruesome deaths/injuries, incest, pedophilia and/or rape
  • Endless spam threads (e.g. "person above you")
  • Threads to discuss or promote random pictures or GIFs
  • Is <random celebrity/model/person> hot?
  • Threads that are very similar to other currently active threads
  • Threads that call out a specific member or group of members
  • Inane threads where no serious replies can be expected
  • Threads that invite discussions of a sexual nature
  • Threads that stereotype groups of people
  • Threads that attack or ridicule other websites, particularly forums similar to ATRL
  • Random chat threads (use Random Thoughts)
  • Threads about chat websites like Tinychat and Omegle

 

SENSITIVE TOPICS

 

ATRL does not completely disallow discussion of sensitive topics such as religion, politics, abortion, euthanasia, discrimination, etc. However, history has shown that such threads can quickly get out of hand. In this case we prefer closing them in addition to punishing the disruptive individuals. Do not be surprised if your thread about a sensitive topic gets closed with no further explanation.
