Hey, Regulars!: Some Forum Reminders

Friendly reminders:

I would like to request everyone to review the FAQ to familiarize yourself with the guidelines for participation here.

  1. The below quote is listed in our FAQ/Guidelines on beginning a discussion thread. You may see us enforcing this particular point more heavily going forward to try and keep conversations in the realm of the conversations which the organization would fit to host.

Opening posts should have some relationship to the intersection of Christian faith and mainstream science. Try to include a question or conversation starter that invites others to interact.

  1. Moderators reserve the right to moderate any content on the Forum. If you do not like something another user has said, please use the FLAG button next to their post and the moderators will review it. If you feel like you were unjustly moderated, you may escalate it to @HRankin, BioLogos staff member. But please note, we do not have time to engage with you 1:1 at length to debate moderation choices. Perpetually doing so may result in suspension of your account.

  2. We run this forum on behalf of an organization with a specific set of viewpoints, approaches and perspectives. Our moderation all comes from that mindset, and less of our personal convictions.

  3. When interacting with others, please try to remember our gracious dialogue expectations. If you cannot treat the other real humans on this board with respect, then you will no longer be a part of this forum. If you cannot help but get in quippy arguments, you can use the Ignore function that is available to you to hide certain people from your feed, or maybe take a break for a few days. If you would like assistance in taking a break, we can set that up on your account for you.

  4. You do not have to continue to participate if you do not want to. If this is not the Forum for you, that is okay.

We want this to be a welcoming place to newcomers, and there’s nothing like showing up to a party where everyone already knows each other AND they’re already throwing stuff at each other when you arrive.

Thanks for being here, we hope you can help keep this a great corner of the internet for people struggling with real questions about science and faith.
