Just saw these rules on another forum, thought it was worth a larf
" Don't be a dickhead to each other, or about others, or other subreddits
Assume questions are asked in good faith, and engage in a positive manner
Avoid political threads and related discussions
No medical advice or mental health (specific to a person) content"
But on a more serious note and following this theme about other sites guidelines regarding netiquette:
"We want our readers to be able to engage in constructive debates, share stories and discuss our content.
In order to have high-quality debates that are characterized by mutual respect, it is essential that you follow certain rules.
Please refer to the specific article or video in each comment.
Please write your contributions in German / English (please specify the language of the offer, exceptions are possible).
We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, racism, sexism, homophobia, abuse of minorities, religious insults, profanity or other forms of hate speech.
In particular, we oppose insults and degradation of our authors.
Any comment containing conspiracy theories and/or deliberately misleading information is not allowed.
The abuse of the comment sections as advertising space for commercial or private offering of goods and services is not allowed.
The publication of private data such as addresses or telephone numbers in comments is not allowed. In your own interest, you should avoid posting material that violates your privacy and data rights or those of others.
Please ensure that quotes are cited accordingly in your comments, if possible. When quoting copyrighted material or uploading copyrighted audio, video, or images, remember that you need the rights to use the content. We reserve the right to hide external links.
Avoid using all capital letters as this could be perceived as verbal aggression.
In the event of violations of these guidelines, comments will be edited, hidden or completely deleted by our community managers without prior agreement. In the event of persistent or serious violations, we reserve the right to block users from our channels temporarily or permanently.
We reserve the right to change and update this netiquette."
It would be better if the tone here was less trying to adversarially prove someone wrong sometimes by quite derogatory means and gravitate towards helpful learning from each other because the collective knowledge in here is amazing.
In that way the moderators would be essentially out of a job, how utopian !
