Thank you for trying to clarify for the members!  I just have a question about:

i.      We don’t allow posts that are intended to be rude, sarcastic, insulting, berating, argumentative, condescending, personally attacking, or that otherwise harass users of the Weddingbee site.

How do you go about determining the intent of the poster?  Some people are just more sarcastic, etc. in how they interact and they don’t mean to be that way, they just are.

What exactly is and isn’t okay when it comes to sarcasm? Because frankly, there are an awful lot of members here that use sarcasm as a means of friendly conversation. I understand sarcastic remarks meant to “pick on” someone as being against policy, but please tell me that otherwise it’s okay. Can you show us an example of what would and wouldn’t be acceptable?

@MrsCoachBtoBee: I agree with your question.

The only thing that caught my eye is being told we can’t be sarcastic…I mean really?

@Crisark: I took it as sarcasm pointed towards an individual instead of a topic or situation. I could be wrong though.

Is there some sort of actual policy in place that says members cannot question or inquire openly about a mods behavior or is it more of an informal suggestion that we behave as such?

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: That could mean so many things though. If another poster and I PM often and we are used to eachothers form of sarcasm and neither has a problem with it but someone comes along and takes it out of context or thinks all sarcasm is inappropriate then that isn’t really the best use of the policy now is it?

Thank you for this.

However, I have been curious for a while…why are we not able to delete threads we start on our own? If something is posted past the ‘edit window’, why can we still not delete it if we decide to, even if it does not meet the deletion criteria? I’ve always wondered this.

@MsBrooklynA: I see what you’re saying. I think that using sarcasm in a comment as a form of friendly humor without pointing it at any one person is the idea. I’ve seen it done otherwise where they direct a sarcastic comment towards one person and then continue to go off that “inside joke” (about the other person) for the remainder of the thread. I think that’s what they mean by not ok. Once again, I could be wrong lol.

I have a question about the deletion policy on weddingbee’s part. Is there any way you could add some guidleines to keep our posts from getting deleted?

Mrs. DG and the entire mod team worked tirelessly on finalizing this policy for weeks….thank you so much for all your dedication to the site, and to keeping the boards an inclusive place where brides and members can get all the support they need to plan their weddings πŸ™‚ xxx
