Casual Chat (formerly LOTPW) Topic
LOTPW - now Casual Chat - is, and will always be a safe place to vent about ongoing political news. Casual Chat is a fast moving topic by nature where the subject changes organically, so this should not effect peoples general enjoyment of it; if the live discussion isn't one you like at the time, you can always check back later!
It is permitted for members to create dedicated topics for world news in the Support forum, should you wish to raise awareness about a subject you feel strongly about in your country and feel might be of interest to Ginga Board users. This has always been the case, but I wish to make clear "news" in general isn't limited to the Casual Chat topic.
When starting or engaging in such discussions in the above areas remember the board rules, and respect any admins decision (myself, Kasi and Crystal) to shut down the conversation or remove posts/topics entirely if reported.
- Members can use the report function to report posts for rule breaking as normal.
- Multiple reports on a specific topic/Casual Chat thread will result in the topic/posts being removed without warning if it is out of hand and beyond moderation control.
There are many other places to discuss political issues specifically than a fandom focused on dogs, but we want to allow you to discuss these things in moderation in a safe place. While this may not seem necessary to some, it is to others; we all use the forums differently. We recognise that it is safer to discuss such issues on a forum of like-minded people with a mutual common interest - Ginga!
Remember: stay civil, stay polite; these guidelines may be subject to change pending any extensive rule breaking.
Please note: Political discussions of any sort should not be brought up in any other board areas other than what has been outlined above.
