"Brass Goggles has always and shall continue to portray the "lighter side of steampunk" as coined by our retired founder Tinkergirl. To that end we have a few general rules which apply to all sections of the forum:
1. Please keep all posts within a Safe For Work (SFW) Policy. This means is that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. Posts may contain, some strong language and innuendo, humor, mature themes, historical and fantasy firearms of the "Victorian Era", and some historical-political themes within the context of our 19th century speculative fiction genre. If your post contains partial (upper body) nudity or other visual elements which may not be approved for viewing within an office setting the post must be flagged Not Safe For Work (NSFW). This nudity clause is written in specifically for historical photographs and Steampunk art.
2. You are expected to maintain decorum and behavior appropriate for adult cultural discussion. This means that things which have been dubbed by the internet community as "trolling" are not allowed. Other behavior such as Ad Hominem arguments (attacking someone's argument based on the character or physical trait of the subject) and assuming one or many persona with the intention to deceive (what we've dubbed a 'sock puppet') are expressly prohibited. Bad or disruptive behavior not listed here may also be identified by the Brass Goggles staff and dealt with accordingly.
These rules are interpreted by our moderation staff and rule-breakers will be dealt with as the moderator sees fit. Punishments like a private reprimand, temporary ban, or a full ban are handed out based on the scope of the violation and at the discretion of the moderator.
Purposefully seeking gray area between rules and their wording and/or experimenting by seeing how far you can stretch a rule are seen as rule violations in themselves and may be acted upon as a rule violation.
If you are ever in doubt about your particular post, please send it in a PM to the moderator for the section you are using for a ruling before you make it public!
Metaphysical specific guidelines:
This board is for the discussion of Steampunk, Neo-Victorian, VictorianScience-Fiction and Gaslamp themed subjects that do not come under the other board headings. Whether that happens to be wondering what the most Steampunk-appropriate tea blend is, or whether the moon really does have all the helium we could ever want for - here is the place to discuss it.
