We've talked as a collective and we agreed that we will be enforcing the following rules a little bit harder:
- Celebrity Reaction posts must have context as to what the celebrities are reacting to, and 5-7 reactions from actual entertainment celebrities that work directly in the entertainment industry (movies, books, TV, music).
The only acceptable Celebrity Reaction posts are ones about political news/Presidential debates/laws passed/major world events that don't fall under ONTD's celebrity news umbrella. Anything else is up to a mod's discretion.
- One reaction or tweet typically does not justify an entire post, especially if you don't add some text to the post explaining the content.
and as a reminder, my personal favorite rule:
- Mods decide what gets posted - not you.
Many of you had your JKR related posts rejected, or asked to add more items. Know that we are asking this of you because there are many of users here who have expressed how these posts and their multi hundred comments are legitmately upsetting them. At this point, only roundups and 5 celeb reactions will be accepted. We did this with Weinstein posts so we've been through this before.
We also agreed that we'd enforce these rules harder because we have seen an uptick in posts in relation to violence against our Black brothers and sisters. I can only speak on behalf of those that have messaged us about it, but seeing posts about police violence or talking about violent crimes targeting the Black community can be triggering.
This is why I am formally asking you to put any talk or videos or photos containing violence behind a cut. I can't really enforce that but we do it with ED talks and other things that can be triggering, I think as a collective we can come together and take care of those who read our posts and comments.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact your favorite moderator. They'd be more than happy to assist you with anything you've got going on and realize that things that we also have questions, concerns, or double guess ourselves, and we talk about it as a group.
