Hello, I'm currently in the process of creating a 'back-up' sub on this site. RPW is a community that currently exists on reddit, there has been some discussion of potential censoring, and while I don't think the RPW sub there will be deleted, I also believe in the "hope for the best, plan for the worst" school of thought. There are several subs on reddit solely dedicated to mocking all things RP-related, and the RPW sub on reddit gets trolled quite a bit. As such, if a user decides to engage in trollish behavior - that's fine, but they will also not be allowed to comment on RPW.

This is a very small community compared to other ones, and this has always been a standing policy. If a user doesn't agree with RP, and thinks RPW is a waste of time - then they shouldn't be here. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect consistency from users. It's a fairly basic idea that if you insult a friend and they find out - that they won't want anything to do with you moving forward.

No user will be banned for bad-mouthing RPW on other subverses unless they try to sincerely interact/participate on RPW at the same time. For example, there is a debate sub on reddit called PurplePillDebate, and users will simultaneously engage in a discussion on the sub while also making snide/mocking comments on their home-base troll sub. They smile to your face, and bicker behind your back. It's that kind of duplicity that won't be welcomed on the RPW subverse here. People are free to say and think whatever they want, but this is a focused community that has neither the time nor the patience to deal with individuals that think it's fine to seek advice/input from RPW while also insulting the users here.

No one has the time or the interest to check the history of every user, and really we often only become aware of a troll once they start making inappropriate comments on RPW. I understand your reasoning, and appreciate your input. That said, I'm simply creating the foundation for a back-up of an already existing community so that if and/or when we have to transition somewhere, there will be a space all set up and ready to be used.

I don't have a problem with reddit by and large - but my activity there is also very focused. These rules have worked well so far, and I see no reason to alter them now when there are several other projects to get under way.
