The rules need some rewriting to fit with current moods and standards.

Please post suggestions about things to add and remove.

I will read everything but I am very likely to disregard everything and do what I want,. Maybe I might take something on board though.

Current "general" rules: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/announcement.php?f=11&announcementid=140

When discussing art or w/e like the fairy I am I have thought "oh shit, can I actually post this painting?" simply because a tit is showing.

Many of the rules seem redundant. Versus and mirror threads. Same with posting in reported threads. Either go full Stalin or be like, a total hippie, bro

I think it should be bannable to insult thread rulers.

I think maybe just "no porn" and so art and that is okay as long as it isn't blatant fap material.

yea vs and mirrors are fun and no one really mods that stuff, so perhaps just like "don't overkill/beat dead horse" (worded more eloquently)

reported should still apply to bot shit, but otherwise meh.

actually while FOTB is mentioned and a mod is present

can there be a public lurk-only section for the funniest threads in the FOTB? I know each user only gets like 1 post per thread but there must be some proper raging going on down there

fair point. for the good of the forum i am willing to make a sacrifice and accept the grueling position of 'supreme court of good and ungood shit'

on a more serious note, i probably wouldn't mind there being a max number of youtube videos you can post per page or some shit because a lot of threads are unreadable on mobile or tablet. but then again you have discussions where posting a lot of videos makes sense. maybe make it so they have to be spoiler'd if that actually does anything to lessen the strain on your mobile device?

I think maybe that's something for ug office devs to improve on mobile site (suggest in new forum thread) spoiler doesn't do shit for loading, as far as I am aware. perhaps maybe they could just make it so youtube videos on the mobile site just show up with just video title that only expands full video when clicked?

Yea, only thing I can think of is toning back no no nudity rule. Not like I really ever have a reason to break it but every now and then I'll be reading something I wanna share and then realize there is a nipple so I can't.

^Really all videos should just be put in spoilers. I'd get behind that rule

my concern is just people using UG at work and school really. maybe throw in mandatory "NFSW" tag on any thread with nips. outright porn (soft/hard) is still not allowed. hot chicks/guys/other humans is still not allowed because it's just always dumb piles of reposted google pics with no discussion (and triggers those anti-objectification viewpoints)

Could just require them to be spoilered and marked like

maybe, but really it'll rarely be an occurrence anyway based on those limitations. would just cut down on frivolous bans.

where do you draw the line though at what is art and what is porn
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
