Peekaboo said:Isn't that what the DNP list is for? Doesn't that just go under the rules we already have? Or did you mean that as in art commissioned by certain peeps?
Mostly commissioners or character owners, or when we tell someone to stop uploading something specific like Memes.But also against people who feel the need to create way too many pointless threads.
Peekaboo said:Doesn't that go under Tagging Abuse/Tagging Vandalism?
That is under tag vandalism if it is a clear cut case (imagine someone tagging female on a male solo picture) but may be necessary if it could go either way but we decide on one.
I don't see it getting too much use in tagging wars, though, more for community things.
Being unallowed to report older posts seems odd, I don't get why that would be against the rules now.
Usually its art that the artist wishes to post themselves. Some people throw fits when someone uploads their art before they do.

Because according to them "oh, it's been too long, it doesn't matter anymore."

Statute of limitations is a thing, how fair is it to punish someone for a comment they made 2 years ago, that they don't even recall making?Not fair at all.
Seem to be discussing:
Suggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
It should be noted that if a user reports a post, thread, comment, or any other site media that is older than 6 months, but contains a publicly visible malicious link, that will be exempt from this rule
In addition, if a person who is submitting content wishes it for it to be removed, for any reason, within 48 hours, that request will be honored.
Discussion for above CoC amendment.
Halite said:Statute of limitations is a thing, how fair is it to punish someone for a comment they made 2 years ago, that they don't even recall making?Not fair at all.
More like retroactive punishment is unfair, but that only applies to content existing before the above CoC amendment was ratified. For content created after the amendment, the rule assumes a high level of awareness among e621's users and the furry community at large such that wronged individuals would be exposed to the offense and have ample opportunity to decide if the offense warranted reporting. If the content was not reported within 6 months of creation, the rule assumes that, by way of tolerance, the furry community as a whole, including artists, did not deem the content worthy of censure. Thus, the community tacitly accepts the content after 6 months, and its creator becomes beyond administrative reproach. From an even more general perspective, the rule implies that content integrates and solidifies itself in the community after 6 months without complaints, becoming an accepted part of the whole.
Simple version: After 6 months, e621 arbitrarily decides that the furry community accepts content despite any flaws.
However, as a compromise, I believe mods can fairly process reports against content older than 6 months without punishing the would-be offender if the report is otherwise valid.
Why did I type this? lol... Further caveats omitted for "brevity." That was fun.
This is actually talking about just forum posts, not all posts in general. Obviously we definitely still want users to report old image posts if they need to be reported. This will be corrected in the CoC.

abadbird said:...Simple version: After 6 months, e621 arbitrarily decides that the furry community accepts content despite any flaws.
Lack of quality isn't a reportable offense at any time period.
No, but let me explain why. We want to punish people who intentionally make the site more difficult to use. To that, we punish people who use less than three tags on upload, and who change a post's tags to suit their own personal views (especially if it's against TWYS).
If someone is just not an avid tagger, or doesn't know a post's gender, then I wouldn't want to punish someone for that. Now, if they are uploading a significant amount of content, and this slip-up is causing problems, then a moderator/admin can ask them to start tagging genders.
Obviously, tagging gender is just an example. It could be applied to anything and, as such, leave it open for abuse. The spirit of the rule would fail and it would cease to be effective.
Char said:This is actually talking about just forum posts, not all posts in general. Obviously we definitely still want users to report old image posts if they need to be reported. This will be corrected in the CoC.
If material is condemnable regardless of timeframe, it should be condemned. I don't understand how you can consider this fair.
And CoC changed again, clarified Abuse of Site Tools to specifically mention Forum posts instead of posts.
It should be noted that if a user reports a forum post, thread, comment, or any other site media that is older than 6 months, but contains a publicly visible malicious link, that will be exempt from this rule
This is aimed at making sure trolls and other disrespectful people do not detract or harm the look of the website by putting it requests for admin action with no clear, real, or valid basis. An example is someone who issues multiple username change requests in a short period of time. Another is someone repeatedly reporting another user’s comments when they didn’t break any rules.
[Previous changes here]
The forums and website are here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give advice, and converse about other aspects of e621 with fellow members. The community forums and primary website are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner while participating in these forums.
The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Also, suspension or banishment from the posting section of the website will always result in the same regard to forum access. Your access to the forums and website is a ‘privilege’, and not a ‘right’. We reserve the right to suspend your access to the forums and website at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines. In addition, these guidelines are not enforced on the e621 IRC channel, or similar off-site social channels. Likewise, any guidelines in use for the e621 IRC channels, or similar off-site social channels will not affect your access on the forums or website. Please note that the application of these rules varies based on the section of the website it is posted. Some things are OK to be as part of a 'Post' submission to the website, whereas it would not be OK as part of a 'Forum Thread'.
We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category:

Abuse of Site ToolsSuggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
AdvertisingSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
If you are the content creator of a given post, it is acceptable and encouraged for you to advertise products or services you may offer, in the 'description' field of your post. In the future, we hope to offer a more streamlined and useful system for the promotion of your own work.If you wish to promote your product or service, please contact [email protected] with any questions/approvalsVisit https://e926.net/forum/show/10410 for more information
This is intended to prevent people from using e621’s forums and posts from being a source of income/traffic for their unrelated business. If someone would like to advertise on the website, we encourage them to contact us so we can try and get them better exposure. This also allows them a place to go if they want to pay for a banner on the website. Not all ads have to be paid for either, and in some cases, we allow businesses or projects to receive free promotions in order to do good for the community.
Age RestrictionsSuggested Suspension Length: PermanentThis category includes:
Your account is your responsibility. If your account was breached/hacked, then you can dispute the problem and we will look into it on a case-by-case basisIf found to violate this rule, the account may be banned until the user’s 18th birthday.
Even though different states/provinces/territories have different rules, e621.net’s management and service office is located in Arizona, USA and it is by those laws that we are responsible for. We cannot knowingly allow any minors to view pornographic content, so we must be proactive in preventing this underage access. This includes accounts that are either legally or illegally accessed by minors. Furthermore, we require photo identification and proof of someone turning 18 in order to release access to their account. Such proof can be sent to the senior management group to determine authenticity, and must include the user’s face as well as the government or state issued identification, or other applicable document.
Backseat ModeratingSuggested Suspension Length: 3 to 7 daysThis category includes:
This is aimed at preventing non-administrators from attempting to enforce the rules of the website. It does not matter if the user was correct, or incorrect, in their actions. Most, if not all, users are largely unaware of the daily dealings with the admin staff and would not be aware of any pending changes or discussions. In addition, users cannot demand an admin ban someone, report a comment, take down art, or any of the moderator/administrator actions. However, they can request that we look into something, so that we may perform our own research and resolve it without bias. Example: Sending a PM to an admin telling them to ban a user, with or without a reason. Example: Sending in a ticket citing a rule violation, then stating that if it wasn’t done to their satisfaction, they want all of their art removed from the site. BestialitySuggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
The two keywords here are “real-life” and “inappropriate”. Obviously, there are going to be bestiality references, and the nature of our site has to be more lenient about it than most. However, the moment someone mentions or posts about a real-life animal and makes sexual comment about it, then they fall under this. No personal discussion. If someone makes a sexual reference to a drawn or imaginary animal, that is fine. Example: I tried to get the horse penis to be realistic in size (okay) Man, I fucked my neighbor’s horse so hard last night (not okay).
Refusal to Use BlacklistSuggested Suspension Length: 3 to 7 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to reduce or eliminate the complaints that users make about seeing a certain type of content on the site. If a user chooses, or refuses, to utilize the blacklist, but continues to complain about content they find offensive or unsatisfactory, then this rule may be enforced. Additionally, if a user finds a post that is incorrectly tagged and willingly chooses to complain about seeing it instead of placing the correct tag, this rule may also be enforced then.
Circumventing a Suspension / BanSuggested Suspension Length: PermanentThis category includes:
If someone is found to have violated this rule, they may be banned with no appeal, regardless of previous disciplinary actionAlternate accounts are generally okay, so long as they are not used to evade the suspension/ban
Fairly self-explanatory. If someone gets Suspended or Banned, and they try to go on a friend’s account, or alt account, and post anyway, that account gets banned as well. The other side to this is if they were under a short-term suspension and they go around to circumvent it, that short-term suspension becomes a permanent ban. If a user does this, but acts in such a way as to not continue the actions that got them banned, then an admin may choose not to enforce this rule, under the guise of helping the greater good.
Creating Duplicate Forum ThreadsSuggested Suspension Length: 3 to 7 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to reduce clutter on the website, discouraging users from posting similar or same content in multiple, potentially unrelated, forums or topics. If someone would like to increase visibility of a post for any reason, they can request it from an admin.
Creepy CommentsSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to ensure that users do not express their personal fetishes/desires publicly. Users have the right, within realistic expectations, to browse comfortably without unneeded or unnecessary commentary of those who wish to express their desires.
Discussing Disciplinary ActionsSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
Link to public records is located at https://e926.net/user_recordIf you have a question about a disciplinary action, please contact the admin or site owner via dmail or email.
This is intended to prevent drama and concerns over how someone was disciplined. While records are publicly available information, any disputes/communication over said records or any other disciplinary action is confidential between the user and the admin team. Discussing it publicly would only serve to cause disruption and is generally ill-advised. It is encouraged that any and all discussion about disciplinary actions occur via email or dmail and directly to the admin in question or senior management group.
Disregard of the Site AdministrationSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to make sure that any instructions given by the staff of e621 are followed, but is mainly for minor things that are annoying or disrupting.
Distribution of Real-Life Personal InformationSuggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
If someone is found to have violated this rule, they may be banned with no appeal, regardless of previous disciplinary action
Self-explanatory for the most part, but any attempt to reveal personal information, whether true or not, about someone will qualify. Example: I heard EDFDarkAngel1 lives in Phoenix (okay) I heard that EDFDarkAngel1 drives a red 1961 Ferrari GT California (not okay).
Extreme Sexuality / ViolenceSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
The intent is to prevent real-life violent content from websites we do not control from being exposed to users of e621. The rule specifically mentions links to other websites since we control the content here. As to what defines as “extreme kink” is going to be judged on a case-by-case basis. However, if it is ruled that one thing is extreme kink, it must be consistent in that ruling. For example, if you consider scat as an extreme kink (not saying that we should), all posts and comments that contain scat should be removed as well, so judge wisely. Example: a post of a drawn character getting graphically and brutally slaughtered (okay). A forum thread linking to 4chan’s /c/ thread (not okay)
Harassing or DefamatorySuggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
This will be rendered against intent as well as action. The idea is to prevent a member from being uncomfortable in the forums or on the site.
This is intended to stop the insults and offensive comments that some people use. If someone makes a public comment, and someone finds it offensive, it will most likely fall under this. Example: I don’t agree with the admins (okay) The admins here are fucking stupid (not okay)
Major Religions, Religious Figures, Political Parties, or Political FiguresSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
The main point behind this is, while we do encourage free speech and we have no problem with someone saying “thank God” or “Jesus blesses you”, we have to draw the line at an actual discussion, as it often leads to passionate and heated debate and a general distraction from what is ultimately a porn website. The same goes for politics, we know that people want to talk about it, and often do, but there are places for that and they are not here.
National HatredSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to make sure people aren’t outwardly offending people’s national pride or members of a government. This is something that we need to gauge by intent, not just presentation. There are acceptable forms of art that present shock value, or an unpopular point of view, but where we need to step in is if someone is deliberately being malicious.
Illegal Drugs or ActivitiesSuggested Suspension Length: 3 to 7 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to make sure we are not promoting drug use in commentary form. It is okay if someone posts a picture of someone shooting up, but it is not okay if someone comments that they like to shoot up. We do not want anyone looking at the comments and thinking drug abuse is acceptable (because someone else is doing it). Example: a post where a strung-out character has a needle in their arm (okay) Comment in the post’s thread: Oh wow, that reminds me of me an hour ago! (not okay)
Impersonating an Employee or ModeratorSuggested Suspension Length: PermanentThis category includes:
Passing yourself off as anyone else is not generally acceptable, and if it is someone who has been suspended or banned, it may lead to your account being banned
This is intended to make sure that all official information comes from admin accounts, and not someone else. This includes posting official information on a friend’s account, or even an alternate one. Make sure that if you are posting information, you do it from your administrator or moderator account. This also goes for ban-evaders, if someone tries to impersonate them, we will assume it is them trying to evade the ban. Example: Hey everyone, it’s EDFDarkAngel1 on a friend’s account. I wanted to tell you about some of the upcoming site changes…
PlagiarismSuggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
Commonly known as art theft, this is something we take very serious as the work of artists are the life blood of our website. Any found traced pictures will be deleted and any wrong claims will be hidden or corrected.Important to note, we still allow “fan edits” but we will remove them if the artist wishes so and we may take action against the editor if the edits continue to be uploaded after the artist has asked to stop them.
Posting AbuseSuggested Suspension Length: 3 to 7 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to ensure there is a minimum level of quality on the website, by ensuring people who have specifically requested that their art not be on the site, removing art that is sufficiently poor quality, or encouraging tag usage. It also is expanded to include post descriptions and ensure that no one uses it to vandalize someone’s post.
Posting Hacks, Trojan Horses, or Malicious ProgramsSuggested Suspension Length: PermanentThis category includes:
If you want to report a hack or other malicious program, please contact the site administrator via the Contact Us page with screenshots and/or other evidence sufficient to reproduce the problemIf someone is found to have violated this rule, they may be banned regardless of previous disciplinary actionAlternatively, you may contact any admin via dmail, email, or IRC chat to report this issue
This is intended to keep the website free of unwanted software/malware. Understand that the user may not be outwardly aware that their link is harmful, but most are pretty obvious that they intend to infect others. Example: a post containing a hyperlink to a website with generic/unrelated content and a large number of attention-grabbing ads
Posting Unreleased Content / Hacking Data FilesSuggested Suspension Length: e621 or Bad Dragon related, Permanent. All others, 3 to 7 daysThis category includes:
Please note that paid content over 2 years old is acceptable to post
Since e621 is an extension of Bad Dragon, with it comes the expectation that if someone comes into access with unreleased content, whether it be an unreleased toy, new concept or design, or paysite material, that they do not post it in e621. We take our security very seriously, and any breaches are investigated fully. Example: a post containing a Bad Dragon toy that isn’t released yet.
Addendum: If someone asks about unreleased content, and the answer is that it hasn’t been released or is otherwise unavailable, than that is okay. Discussion regarding its contents, location, opinions of such, or anything pertaining to unreleased content is not acceptable.
Racial / Ethnic HatredSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
The same as National Hatred, we just have to be careful how we judge this. This is something we need to gauge by intent, not just presentation. Example: a post of a black character in a cotton field with a plantation behind them (okay). A post of a black character in a cotton field being whipped by white characters (not okay)
Real-Life ThreatsSuggested Suspension Length: 7 daysThis category includes:
Offensive language and behavior may be tolerated if everyone is okay with things, but the moment it turns into anything else, we need to step in. Administrators and moderators are expressly forbidden to use offensive behavior or language in any communication while assuming official responsibilities. Example: I will kick your ass if you flag one of my posts again (not okay)
Role-PlaySuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
This is intended to prevent a culture that is inherently self-destructive and takes away from the website. There are acceptable forms of role-play, typically that which reinforces a point, creates humor, or otherwise does not cause a disruption. Even in this setting, however, role-play must be just a single comment, and cannot be made in response to another role-player.
Sexual OrientationSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
The intent is to prevent anyone’s sexual orientation from being the target of malice, harassment, etc. Example: I picked up a fag from the ground (okay). Then I dropped him back down again (not okay).
Spamming or TrollingSuggested Suspension Length: 3 days, or PermanentThis category includes:
Spamming is self-explanatory, but unless the entire thread is joining in and enjoying an offensive or harassing comment, someone who posts insulting comments should get flagged. We will have to use common sense when enforcing this; people can have opinions and state them, but that does not allow them to make someone else feel bad or unwanted. If no one complains or gets offended, AND it’s not an outwardly offensive remark, then it will be okay. However, if someone complains, gets offended, OR it’s an outwardly offensive remark (I think EDFDarkAngel1 is an asshole and should be shot), then they need to be flagged.
Tagging Abuse / Tagging VandalismSuggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
The purpose for this is to prevent users from abusing the system that for easy searching/indexing of the posts. This enforces the site’s “Tag What You See” rule, in that you cannot tag an image as “male” or “female” unless there is visible evidence of that. Even if another site has the same character with better visibility of its gender, that post uniquely must contain those elements. Mistagging, adding invalid tags, or removing valid tags are not punishable for a one-time offense, but they will be disciplined if they produce a pattern of tagging abuse.
IMPORTANTRepeatedly violating any area of the e621 Community and Forums Code of Conduct, including the areas detailed above, will often result in banishment from the forums and site.This policy is not language-restrictive. Language that falls under this policy will always be subject to the repercussions listed, whether it is inappropriate in English or any other language.The bottom line is that we want e621.net to be a fun and safe environment for all members. While posting on its forums and on the site, you will encounter thousands of other people who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may or may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that the same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else.
When first creating an account, you will automatically be set as Member. Through tagging/posting contributions to the site, as well as constructive behavior, you may get promoted by an administrator. If you feel that you should get promoted based on your efforts, you can contact the website administration via the Contact Us page and request it.
Member: Can search up to six tags simultaneously. Must wait three days to edit tags, and a week to upload, vote, and comment
Privileged: Unlimited tag edits and comments, can search up to eight tags simultaneously, can apply tag scripts, use Dtext color tags and tag subscriptions
Contributor: No upload limit, submitted posts are auto-approved
Janitor: Can delete forum posts
Moderator: Unlimited access, with the exception of editing forum categories, job tasks, news, takedowns, editing post votes, create/delete aliases and implications, ticket system, change usernames, and modify upload limits
Administrator: Unlimited access to all site tools and reports
If you have been given a position above Member, then it is expected that you will respect others and behave according to the e621 Community and Forums Code of Conduct. If at any time you fail to adhere to these rules, you may lose your elevated position.
Administrators/Moderators must act professionally and kindly when dealing with the userbase, insults and harassment will not be tolerated and will likely lead to that administrator or moderator’s dismissal.
When a member is found to have violated the Code of Conduct in one or more ways, disciplinary actions will be given from a site administrator in the form of a neutral or negative record. It will contain the specific rule that was broken, and the offending post (or hyperlink to offending post). This is a breakdown of how the disciplinary actions will work:
Senior ManagementDave Reynolds / EDFDarkAngel1 (Community Manager/Lead Admin) – [email protected] Aaron Urbina / DasaDevil (Admin) – [email protected] Robert Nobis / NotMeNotYou (Admin) – [email protected]Varka (Owner) – [email protected]
Please note that we will not discuss actions against a specific user except with the user themselves

In regards to the plagiarism section, what is the difference between "Tracing artwork without consent" and "fan edit"? I have not asked for permission to make posts: #465910, #465926, #466297, #463091 and #423708.
Are these now considered traced artwork and thus against the rules or are they considered fan edits? (If they are against the rules please give me a short while to ask artist for permission before deleting.)

I'd say they are okay as long as you clearly mark them as edits (by adding the edit tag) and by using the description to state that you edited them yourself (and maybe what you did so people don't have to search).
Otherwise we only really consider them traced if they try to pass it of as their own work.
CamKitty said:Change the laws, punish people who broke the law before it was official. GENIUS :o
Reporting something, and someone getting punished, are two separate things. If someone wants to report a screenshot from two years ago, I would be okay with that. I'm not going to punish the uploader (nor have we been doing that either). If it was done recently, then that would be different.
I see no rules or limitations that the admins and mods must follow, only a rule that we have to do what they say. Maybe I missed it?
Peekaboo said:Isn't that what the DNP list is for? Doesn't that just go under the rules we already have? Or did you mean that as in art commissioned by certain peeps?Doesn't that go under Tagging Abuse/Tagging Vandalism?
Doesn't that go under Tagging Abuse/Tagging Vandalism?
No, since commissioners can't be DNP.
And no, since you aren't really required to provide more than the initial 4 tags per upload. Nothing in the coc against consistently leaving out the artist tag. Now if you do it and we ask you to stop, failure to do so is considered an infraction.
Except the law has always been that if someone's being a really big jerk or overly creepy, report it. Just because it's six months old or older it should be allowed to stand for everyone else to be exposed to their creepiness/massive jerkitude? That's like saying that just because a kid's behaviour has gone on the same way for six months no one should tell him that acting that way is wrong. At the least the post or comment should be removed if found to be outside the rules, even if the original creator of the post is not punished- which is what I'm really getting at. Tired of seeing creepy or assholish posts get waived from ANYTHING being done about them just because they've been there for awhile, even if not many people have even SEEN the post or comment in question.

So you are suggesting that we either punish people for things they said eons ago, or that we should censor people. Imagine seeing a strike show up on your account one day for a comment you left months ago that no one even noticed. Or all the backlash we would get if we started hiding comments just because they were unappealing to look at.

This. I can guarantee almost everyone was a bit of a twat and definitely didn't know tagging/commenting rules when they started here
And this is why I'm not saying they definitely should be punished- but the post shouldn't just be ignored because "oh, it's old." like I've been told god knows how many times when I've found a post or comment that's offensive hidden away in an uncommon section and report it. Why do you think I stopped bothering to help out around the site aside from implications/alias discussions? Because it's a waste of MY time if the moderators just pass up issues that I bring to them.
I agree with ippiki on this one. It would be a huge waste of time to hide everything that people find creepy/jerkish. If the admins went around cleaning all of it up, a lot of people would be banned, or have strikes. Plus, getting a strike for a comment you made like 2 months ago would suck... Thats why I left a number of forums in the past, overly ban happy peeps. Admins can control this kinda thing, while we do our job reporting things, nuff said.
I hope mods also do something about users who don't even bother to tag gender and/or sexual orientation on explicit images anymore. I've noticed it's made the blacklist system a bit less useful than it used to be years ago.

That is something we leave to all the users to handle, not just the admin team. Every user has the ability to fix incorrect/improper tags.
Sound the rules are getting Change RIGHT???????
So, new CoC live.
CoC Changelog April 28th 2014:
Reworded Harassing or Defamatory
Put in that we will actively delete old neutrals after 6 months, if that rule hasn't been broken again, negative records are still there for all eternity.Also clarified the language a bit to bring it in line with how the site itself calls things.
Notifications will be removed after 6 months time if the broken rule has not been violated a second this timeframe.
Suggested Suspension Length: 3 daysThis category includes:
So, do we have to request the old neutral warnings be removed? Or are they supposed to go automatically? Or what?
Halite said:So, do we have to request the old neutral warnings be removed? Or are they supposed to go automatically? Or what?
Request is fine. If I was looking at a user's profile to investigate a ticket or whatnot, I usually will delete an old neutral then.
EDFDarkAngel1 said:Request is fine. If I was looking at a user's profile to investigate a ticket or whatnot, I usually will delete an old neutral then.
K, I have 2 old ones, if you have a minute to knock those off.
