New Rule to Foster Discussion

New Rule to Foster Discussion

This sub has been under new management for around two months now, and we hope people are enjoying the more open and welcoming environment we have tried to foster. Since we would like this sub to offer an environment of learning and debate, we have added/ refined some rules. This first item represents the biggest change we are making to this sub.

Posts must focus on presenting evidence or inviting group discussion.

  • This rule compliments the rules regarding No low effort, Be specific, and Support your argument.
  • Post titles should not be in an “Ask a Flat Earther” or “Ask a Globe Earther” format. For example, instead of saying, “How do flat earthers explain eclipses?”, you would say, “On a globe earth, a solar eclipse is explained by three globe-shaped objects, where the moon comes between the earth and the sun. How are eclipses explained on a flat earth?”
  • This new rule is mandatory.

If you post a video, please provide a summary of the video and offer at least one timestamp to direct the user to at least one salient point of the video.

And we offer this general guideline: Don’t downvote just because you disagree – it destroys fair debate for everyone. Instead, use your words and make your case! Save your downvotes for blatant trolling.

And as always, be respectful. Bigoted slurs are not tolerated. Address the argument, not the user, the mods, or the sub.

Thank you 🙂
