Policy and Rules

Rules for Users

The rules of Polestria were laid out by our forefathers in the long,long ago, in the before time. They are simple:

All posts and content are the responsibility of the poster, mlpol.net does not take responsibility for anything posted here

Staff Rules

We the staff of mlpol do not ever want to become anything like those of certain other websites, therefore the following rules were laid out by the site owner, Atlas

  1. No staff member shall use the information he obtains in his position on staff for personal gain, lulz, or to harass/humiliate a user or other staff members
    • The information of the users is sacred and shall not be used outside of needs by administration, we don't even have access to IP addresses from the users, we keep no logs, not even error logs, outside of what the website provides us directly.
    • Using information for any purpose, including selling to others, data mining for malicious purposes, or for any reason are grounds for immediate removal from staff position, permanent banning from the site, and if the offense is serious enough, main staff will cooperate with law enforcement
  2. Staff will maintain a level of transparency with the community
    • /mlpol/ is a community of like-minded individuals, we are not barbarians hyped up on ape testosterone
    • We are driven by a need to maintain this website, not by a need to steal your info and sell it to the highest bidder
    • If a thread is posted on /qa/ it is to be addressed within two days at most, even if the reply is negative or a simple "I don't know"
    • Staff found to deliberately delete threads or posts to avoid discussing important topics about the site can face punitive measures up to and including dismissal
  3. Staff will take all community suggestions into account
    • As this is a community site and not a top-down dictatorship like some other sites user input is very important
    • Staff found to be deliberately removing community suggestions to avoid changes on the site or push their own agenda will be subject to punitive measures up to and including dismissal
  4. Staff will never bow to foreign influence
    • The community of this website are the masters here, and no amount of money, threats, DDOS, hack attacks, or other methods of coercion will every change that
    • Any staff found to be under foreign influence, including Atlas himself, shall be removed from staff and banned from the website, as this page constitutes a legal contract Atlas would have to give up control of the site and ownership of the domain to the next staff member in line if he broke this rule, currently this is Pupperwoff
