- No swearing outside The Dive, on the mainboard. Moderators and Admins may edit your post as they see fit to remove the swear. Be warned, sarcasm may ensue.
- On the main boards we have a rule about not discussing Big six books (e.g. anything by the main six publishers). For Mannered Discourse, this rule is relaxed, but please remember it if you go outside this area.
- Don't be a jerk.
Guest Posting will be open until we start to have spam problems. Mannered Discourse is under development, so look and feel may change. Feel free to make suggestions. As there are now alternate forums running, if Mannered Discourse goes unused for a month we'll roll it in with the main boards, rather than run multiple sections.
For people looking for more former users of the now-closed forum that was at: http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php
The site is still at etiquettehell.com, and blog comments are live.
The main community that Ms. Jeanne suggested users go to by PM is:
Bad Manners and Brimstone - Index
The section on our board is (a.k.a You are here): A Place for Mannered Discourse | Bookangel Boards
Other spin-off boards that have arisen:
Manners for a Modern World - Index
Polite Paradise - Index
If you know any others to add, let us know.
Added because someone asked:
JSECoin has now been removed due to an issue with it. It is a network that supports sites by using adspace to mine ethereum. You can opt out at any time either across the whole network, or your adblocker can block it by default. Effectively this mints Ethereum tokens to support sites, reducing the ads they need to show. In practice it is in beta, so there are issues and it didn't ask consent before running.
Logging in, liking things, posting all gets you points you can use to customise titles, etc.
P.S. One on-running board joke: If our notorious member Porridge ventures across, he means well, he's just from Glasgow. (OK, he's not that bad, it's been a running joke since proboards days.)
