The admin team created this forum to be a place to build a community of people with a shared interest in theatre. We love it here, we love our jobs here but we’re concerned about the tone that our forum has taken recently. We’re also really concerned that some members have chosen to leave and the reasons why.
It feels like some members are looking for confrontation or ways to score points over other members and that’s not what this forum was created for. One of our rules is “Be respectful to other members”. This rule applies to you, to the admin team, to everyone.
We don’t expect everyone to agree all the time, we’re not trying to recreate Disneyland. Different opinions are what makes the discussion interesting. However we do expect members to be able to handle disagreement with civility. This means backing away from provocation and thinking twice before posting.
Our rules are here and we would appreciate you all taking a few minutes to read them and helping us to get the forum back to a happier and more tolerant place.
