Greetings [community profile] scans_daily members!

We just want to inform everyone of the changes that have been made to [community profile] scans_daily's rules, so please be sure to check those out when you have the time.

There weren't too many significant changes to the user info page for the most part, but I do want to point out that we did mostly modified the posting rules so that they're hopefully more clear. Rules of conduct are still the same as before.

Notable changes:

1. Every post must have as its primary subject at least one image from a comic book, manga, newspaper comic strips, or webcomic. Any comic-related news, interviews, videos, movie/tv trailers, essays or articles containing no scans, etc, do not count as primary posts and a "legality scan" does not make your post legal. Please head over to [ profile] noscans_daily for such discussions. The only time we'll make exceptions is if the aforementioned supports any ideas, topics, or issues shown in any of the scans you post, but other than that, "scans for legality" is no more.

2. LJ-cuts are required for any post which contains more than one image. In addition, any spoilers or nsfw content must be behind your lj-cut. For non-recent comics, you may have one preview image no larger than 400 x 300 pixels outside the cut provided that it has no spoilers or nsfw content. Absolutely NO panel from a comic released that is the most current issue of its series may be featured outside of a cut, however unspoilery it is.

3. Any post that contains potentially triggery scans and discussion -- such as extreme violence/gore, sexual violence, abuse, self-harm, and offensive and oppressive content -- must be posted under an adequate Warning before the cut, tagged as such, and framed with sensitivity in the post. In addition, NSFW posts need to posted with an 18+ age restriction filter and clearly labeled and tagged as such.

Another notable change we made is that in addition to reporting any members who demonstrate any oppressive behaviour or make any discriminatory remarks to the mod team, we now allow you to report any mods who are seen demonstrating these things as well:

Note: Please contact a moderator immediately if you see another member making discriminatory remarks. Similarly, if you ever feel or encounter a mod demonstrating discriminatory behaviour on scans_daily, PLEASE NOTIFY ONE OF THE OTHER MODS DIRECTLY and we will take it from there.

I will be posting an updated version of the posting checklist shortly after this post to further clarify posting expectations, but do check out [personal profile] salinea's updated tagging tutorial if you haven't already!

One thing that we haven't been able to decide on over at the mod comm is whether or not to keep "Fanart Thursdays" here on [community profile] scans_daily or move it over to our sister comm on LJ, [ profile] noscans_daily, so we've decided to let you guys vote on that! :)

**I want to especially note that if we do decide to keep it here on S_D, this will be the ONLY time you won't need a scan for your primary post!**

Thank you! Generally playing fast and loose with legality scans and the purpose of this community has been bothering me for a while, but did not want to bring it up for the sake of keeping the peace.
I hope everybody understands that this isn't an attack on any poster in particular, but more of an effort to streamline the profile of the community overall.

Besides the flowers (and tea & cookies if you like those ^^), I'd just like to emphasize that it's always okay to contact mods (by email or PMs or comments on admin post) with issues or concerns. Don't feel obligated to keep quiet just for the sake of keeping the peace. We're a team of six working by consensus for the express purpose of weighting all the pros & cos as far as the peace goes; and we also work better if the community members give us feedback on the comm to have all the facts in mind.

Who doesn't love cookies? :D
I value and appreciate your work and have no doubt that my concerns would have been heard and considered seriously if I had brought them to your attention, however as a general rule I dislike involving mods unless someone is outwardly offensive towards members or violating community ethos.
I've been around for a very, very long time and remember the tone on LJ being much more aggressive and confrontational to a point where participating wasn't really fun anymore. Since the moves the community has mellowed out a lot and this is probably in no small part due to your work.
So I considered this issue to be a minor annoyance about which I could roll my eyes and respectfully ask the poster themselves to perhaps reconsider in the comment sections directly, but nothing that needed to be brought to your attention specifically as you'd be occupied with more important things.
It does feel good however to have one's opinions validated by people who think about the communities' well-being professionally. ;D

I will also be in the minority corner and say I'm quite happy with this change. The creeping percentage of only loosely comic-related news/video posts was starting to feel a mite spammy.

There have been times where a new clip or interview or reveal of a costume or something has been good to allow comic news to aggregate here, but yes, people have been abusing it of late, and barely related posts were jumping up here with a quickly thrown in picture. "Legality scan" or "scan for legality" was quickly becoming in my mind a shorthand for "throwing a quarter in the loophole turnpike."

I'll try giving rss feeds a go for collecting my comic news data, but it will be nice to see the content here a little more streamlined.
