MelonLand Guidelines

The MelonLand guidelines are a set of ideals and rules that I will do my best to apply to all MelonLand sites to make sure that they give everyone visiting MelonLand the best possible experience; If you'd like to apply these guidelines to your site or community too feel free to link them!

These guidelines apply to all MelonLand sites, and sites linked to from MelonLand sites*

  1. Active fair moderation to ensure spaces are safe and positive!
  2. Respectful of others, appreciate their differences and opinions; we are inclusive to all forms of existence.
  3. Emphasis on kindness and respect to all people; and a promotion of knowledge <3
  4. Avoidance of excessive data collection and analytics $$
  5. No allowance of harassment, pestering or diminishing of people or groups - be pleasant and think before posting.
  6. No promotion of hate, conspiracies or misinformation - please avoid references or devils advocates.
  7. Avoid content depicting or referencing traumatic situations or illegal material - aka things that you would not show to your mum.
  8. Appropriate warnings before entering a space that contains adult content or upsetting themes.
  9. Avoid links or identifiable references to sites/media that clearly break these basic guidelines.

Also please read the etiquette guide :^]

*While its not possible for us to vet EVERY link and piece of content - I ask that people make their best effort and report mistakes when they happen - We will do our best to make every connection out of MelonLand a good one :^)

Please be aware these guidelines are intended to foster the kind of community I want to build here - but they are not necessarily correct for other communities, or the wider web. MelonLand is a privately run space and Im more interested in making it creative rather than providing a space for debate, there are other parts of the web for that!

Forum Unique Rules:

  1. Please keep the forum casual but on-point and sort things into the appropriate sections.
  2. Please don't post memes, in-jokes or use acronyms, particularly if it requires context/external knowledge to understand.
