Also if a staff member is making you uncomfortable with their actions or something they've said, please bring it to upper staff if you would like something to be done about it, instead of venting about it privately/offsite or letting yourself get angrier over time. You can tell any active administrator or global moderator. Even if it's to do with a staff member that we appear to be friends with, we're always interested in making sure all staff are enforcing the rules fairly. If one of us can't deal with it, we tend to pass it on to another staff member who can. A lot of times this stuff goes unreported and then something big explodes and upper staff have no idea what is going on, and can't make a fair ruling.
Please also keep this rule in mind:
BZPower does not condone intolerance. If a member treats another member with disdain or contempt because of race, religious preference, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or a similar quality or belief, the member will face administrative action up to and including banning if severe enough.
And note that if your belief system or personal values do not support the equality of certain races, genders, sexual orientations, or the like, you need to keep it off this site. This rule covers you from being treated wrongly simply because of your belief system, but if you are using your belief system to discredit the equality and fair treatment of all races, genders, sexual orientations, other religions, or the like, your words will not be tolerated and will merit consequences.
Please also take note of these rules:
There is no flaming. Flaming makes for a negative atmosphere and it will not be tolerated. That means you should avoid yelling at and needlessly criticizing other members.
There is no trolling. Trying to force someone into an argument is not allowed.
If you're to the point where you feel the need to be sassy and snarky (and believe me, I get to that point quite a bit), it's probably time to slow down and report the person who is upsetting you. Even if they're being wildly offensive or morally ridiculous (I feel your pain!!)
I won't even pretend like this sexism drama mess hasn't been a thing lately. This is definitely what this is about. I'm very disheartened over the lack of respect for and knowledge about women in general, even coming from other women. I understand that there's a lot of misinformation out there that gets flung around and has been so deeply rooted in certain societies of the world, and many of us are a part of one such society. If people are calling your stance sexist or bigoted, it's honestly a good indicator that you should pause and assess your stances and your words objectively, and consider where they are coming from. Do some research, challenge your views, see what holds water and what might be shaky. I've done this a lot in the past and I am always very glad that I did. But really, if a discussion has gone far enough that people are saying something that you feel is grossly sexist, racist, ableist, classist, etc, it's probably a good time to send in a report.
Sometimes we'll have dramafests, as any other social website will. I, and other staff members, want to be able to help BZP be a place focused on enjoyable LEGO and Bionicle discussion. But in order for us to do this properly, we need you guys to communicate with us. Please don't be afraid to come to us with concerns.
Back then I was sitting in my dad's office in Seattle, using my hour-a-day of internet time while my siblings whined that I "spend too much time on the computer".
Today I'm sitting in a friend's house in BC using the internet while I wait for my husband to finish nerding about Gundam.
Have you been wronged recently? Are you suffering from the strain of a car accident? Do you think Bionicle's "No relationship" canon destroyed your childhood?
You don't have to take that! Call Hahli & Husky Legal and we will make your wrongs right.
