CBG Code of Conduct

Are we to be G, PG, or PG13 around these parts? I know we've had a few "words" dropped here and there, especially on the macros off. Just wondering.

By the way, good CoC. Shouldn't be a problem for the regulars I think.

PG13. The occasional swearing isn't a huge deal, but when every other word is "fuck" or somesuch, it becomes a problem.

For it was all ripe for dreaming
Oh, how we danced away all of the lights
We've always been out of our minds

Quote from: Elven Doritos

The Opal Council operates outside of conventional alignment.

We are discreet with oaths.

-ElDo
It's watching you.
Not unlike the Lady of Pain, the Opal Council is difficult to stat. (And I guess that being banned from the forums is not unlike the intarweb equivalent of being Mazed? Better watch my step!)

I heartily support this idea of gentlemanly conduct. While I think it never hurts to state such guidelines explicitly, I doubt that doing so will change very much-- this is really sort of a delineation of what we've been doing anyway.
I move quick: I'm gonna try my trick one last time--
you know it's possible to vaguely define my outline

For those of us not in the States (or wherever else this applies), what exactly does PG13 imply? I mean, I think I get the basic gist, but if you'd said G or PG it would have meant just as much to me.

"Then shall the last battle be gathered on the fields of Valinor. In that day Tulkas shall strive with Melko, and on his right shall stand Fionwe and on his left Turin Turambar, son of Hurin, Conqueror of Fate; and it shall be the black sword of Turin that deals unto Melko his death and final end; and so shall the Children of Hurin and all men be avenged." - J.R.R.

PG is "some material may be inappropriate for children"

PG13 is "some material may be inappropriate for children under 13"

I just noticed that we have a CoC, it may have taken me longer than most but i still noticed it :)

On a more serious note, i repeat all that Crit said, replacing all instances of his name with mine.

For finite types, like human beings, getting the mind around the concept of infinity is tough going.  Apparently, the same is true for cows.

I, Ninja D!, usually being of some mind and of sore body do hereby formally accept and agree to abide by (to the extent that it does not violate my own person beliefs) the CoC of the CBG for now and until I have reason to not do so (and as such reason is likely to lead to open rebellion, until the end of the existence of the CBG.)

Now that that's done...PG 13, eh?  I'd bet our views of what is appropriate for a 13 year old differ.

Canadian PG-13? American PG-13? Dutch PG-13? German PG-13? Japanese PG-13? There's a difference aside from country of origin?

I don't know about regional differences.  What I do know is at times self-proclaimed liberals wonder what the hell I'm thinking.   :-p
