Hi everyone,

Although the following was already against the rules, we have amended Rule #3 to include more specific terms regarding hate speech and propaganda as requested.

Original rule text:
3.) Disturbing the Peace (back to top)

In most cases disturbing the peace refers to behaving in ways that are upsetting or unsettling to people within the community, causing emotional grief, or trauma. This includes, but is not limited to:
Creating unnecessary drama to intentionally disturb another user.
-Faking your own, or someone else's trauma (such as death, an accident...etc.).
-Subjects, images or content that can trigger other members of the community (such as talk of: rape, self-harm, suicide...etc.).
-Trolling, which can be defined as joining the site for the sole purpose of harassing, causing grief, or otherwise disturbing the peace. ** Trolling will either result in a week ban across Chatlands or permanent ban across Chatlands depending upon the severity of the situation.
-The impersonation of anyone other than yourself, regardless of context. ** Impersonation can result in a permanent ban across Chatlands depending upon the severity of the situation.
-Public blacklists of any kind.
Current rule text:

-Creating unnecessary drama to intentionally disturb another user.

-Trolling, which can be defined as joining the site for the sole purpose of harassing, causing grief, or otherwise disturbing the peace. ** Trolling will either result in a week ban or permanent ban depending upon the severity of the situation.
-Subjects, images or content that can trigger other members of the community (such as talk of: rape, self-harm, suicide, hate group propaganda or extremist speech, etc.). ** Hate group propaganda and extremist speech are taken very seriously and most instances of it will lead to serious, if not permanent, bans depending on the severity of the situation.
-The impersonation of anyone other than yourself, regardless of context. ** Impersonation can result in a permanent ban depending upon the severity of the situation.
-Public blacklists of any kind. If you want to blacklist someone from using your artwork, please contact a member of the Art Review Team.
You can find the rule here or here.

Thank you,
