As this also applies here, I have copied my announcement from the Discord server.
Basically, in an attempt to make Lewd more enjoyable for myself and others, I'm trialing going back to the (very) old way of doing things around here.
All staff but myself have temporarily been demoted and I shall be taking care of things on my own, the rules have been discontinued for what was our easier to obey rule, "use common sense". I feel that since adding the rules a lot of hate has spread between the users and the staff as it's not always clear to tell when someone's pushed their luck too much and when they have not.
I believe that Lewd was a friendlier place as a whole when nobody had to feel afraid of the staff, and when breaking the rules was not a meme. Basically I think that a more relaxing, friendly environment is the way to go, and I feel that this path offers that.
While there are no set rules and I am alone in moderation, I do hope that none of you take advantage of the fact and try to ruin this for others. If you can prove to myself and the former staff that this is the way to go, it will continue; if not, it'll go back.
Just because I am a lone admin/moderator, does not mean that I'll be letting anyone get away with being an asshat; if I'm not online to see it, I'm certain that some kind soul will send a report my way and I'll deal with it when I finish sleeping doing whatever it is I do when I'm not online.
There is a weeks trial period from now.
I will also be making an effort of being more active around the forums again.
