Hey guys, instead of sending a long email I went ahead and just shot a video so I could talk about the April box, some ideas for the future and the very soon coming change to our Community! 17 minutes, but check it out. Let's discuss some of what I talk about below!
CONDUCT Play nice. We accept everyone as they are. Therefore there are no personal attacks, fandom shaming/attacking, cosplay shaming/attacking, body shaming, sexism, slut shaming, homophobia, transphobia, racism, and, most of all, no religion or political discussion. Failure to follow those guidelines can get you removed from the community. Follow the old “If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all” rule.
TONE Be aware of what you post. Subject to moderator decision, posts that may be deemed as too "adult" or "macabre" will be deleted. One good rule of thumb is to ask if you would be comfortable showing to your Grandmother. Unless you have one of THOSE Grandmothers. Then maybe think “Adult Swim” style of humor is a good litmus test.
TRADING One of the best parts of this community is the ability to trade items you got in a Bam Box. Maybe you got a variant of something and want a different color? Or maybe you got an art print and want to trade for something last month? Whatever it may be, it will be one of the best parts of this community. So let’s keep it that way. We cannot be responsible for any deal that is made. If we find out that someone is not upholding their end of the deal, we will ban that member after some initial investigation but we cannot replace the item in question. Treat each other with respect as fellow collectors. Use the private chat option to contact people after they have posted something they want to trade in the TRADE thread.
OPINIONS On the opposite end of the spectrum, there may be times in this community where something is written (that falls within the rules) may offend you. Just skip past it. Please refrain from being negative while others are enjoying themselves simply because you do not agree.
ADVERTISING We would love to support all of you in the endeavors you are doing. We want to give you room to show off perhaps an Etsy store or something else that you do that falls with the geek/nerd/gamer theme. So, we have created a thread called “ADVERTISING” where you can post. Again, we allow geek themed advertising ONLY and no more than ONE post per month. We will delete additional posts. Posts in this category include: personal blogs and websites, local events, social groups, businesses etc.
GIVEAWAYS We will be doing sporadic giveaways for members of this community only. It will be in addition to our numerous giveaways on our social channels. Always be checking back with how to enter!
FUNDRAISING Please do no put any fundraising or Kickstarter type campaigns anywhere in the community. Posts will be immediately deleted.
HAVE FUN This is super important! We want you to meet new people and find new interests! Don't be afraid to have a laugh. We hope we hear of lifelong friendships that are born from this community. And we we have something special in mind for the first marriage that takes place from 2 people meeting in here!
SPOILERS We are NOT a spoiler free group, but we do have fairly strict guidelines regarding them. All spoilers must be talked about in the”Spoilers” section of the Community. This goes for items in the Bam Box, movies, TV shows, comic books, Netflix series, etc. That being said, if you see any of the above rules being violated, please feel free to reach out to any of the moderators.
