As a result of some recent changes to the site as well as well as some upcoming changes that are in the works (such as the introduction of the new review site), we have taken an opportunity to update our Community Guidelines.  These rules govern how the site is run and what is acceptable to be posted.  You can find a link to our guidelines in the footer of any page on our site or directly at:

https://www.companyofmen.org/guidelines

Below is a summary of the major changes that have been made:

  • We have MODIFIED the rule that prohibited explicit content from being posted.  Explicit content can now be posted in areas that are not visible to guests (people not logged in).  Examples of non-public areas include the member's only category of the new gallery that will soon be introduced as well as closed Clubs.  For clarification purposes, the current legacy gallery IS still public, so save your porn postings for now!  😁
  • We have REMOVED a rule that stated files cannot be uploaded to the site.  With the migration to IPB and our use of a 3rd party to store attachments, we can now allow files to be directly.  
  • We have ADDED a rule which clarifies that our site rules also apply to private messages.  
  • We have ADDED sections which will govern the new review site as well as site clubs.  
  • We have REMOVED the section "Action of Moderators".  This is more of a "moderators handbook" and not apply to what our rules are.
  • We have REMOVED references to specific US laws.  We don't need to reference a specific law to state that posting certain types of content is against our rules.  

None of the changes should directly impact how you interact with the site.  In a way, we're somewhat "loosening" up on some of the rules we've used to follow.  

I also wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and thank @sam.fitzpatrickas he handled the heavy lifting of tracking all of the edits/changes to the guidelines as well as compiling all of the moderating team's feedback into the master document.  This has been something that has needed to be done for awhile and I'm grateful for his efforts in pushing to get this done.  

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

On several occasions I have submitted incorrect information and the site hasn’t taken me where I want to go. Other than that 😁 I want to thank you and Sam ( and any others involved in the process) for your excellent and helpful ongoing work on this site.👍

I have to say how pleased and grateful I am for all the attention the site has received in the refresh and upgrade.  The work of many hands is evident in the speed, thoroughness and detail that is presented.  I hope I speak for many members with gratitute and relief that the forum is in exceptional hands!

Peace,

Kipp

I'm thinking about assigning some warning points to myself in order to get a vacation!  :) 

I will volunteer to setup a Go Fund Me page to get you a REAL vacation, the one you DESERVE.....    Your contributions around here have been immeasurable, and your open mindedness, and THREAT FREE governing a welcome addition.   I am hoping that when Xmas rolls around we wont see the Grinch surface ?    🤗

I have to say the same. Kudos to the new community (whoever they are) in charge of establishing the new guidelines with a focus on self-moderation. I have noticed a lot less conflicts on the forum since we moved to this new platform.

And you guys made me google Kankakee while I was reading the Club guidelines. For a split second I thought there would be a Club for a new kind of dirty fetish 🤣

Thanks - I struggled finding the right example.  Years ago, I had an employee leave the company when her husband got a new job in Kankakee.  It was very fun to say out loud and every since it has been something I say to myself any time I want to smile.
