Post in forum #85772 - [e621 Code of Conduct] Official changes, questions and answers

New CoC update!

This it's not change of the rules, but adding record worthy offenses from the DNP list directly into the rules. The goal of this change is to allow people to directly see what will lead to records when posting without having to read both the CoC and the DNP list.
