This was masterfully crafted by Bunk.
Let’s keep it PG-13 at worst, no f-bombs;
One post maximum per day per member;
Each post should have an image, even if the post is a benign rant, haiku, or other verbalicitoidity;
Each post should credit the source of any image, quote, flash game, video, etc., included in that post;
All members may and should assist in policing comments from non-members and spammers;
All members should vote in new members to avoid complete anarchy with each member having an equal vote;
All egos should be left at the Awsome County Line. Any disagreements between Squad Members should be resolved outside of the Awesome Squad website;
All members should be allowed to vote against any member who violates the good humor and spirit intended with this Awesome Site, with a 3-strikes law that results in double-secret probation for one month with revocation of posting rights, requiring a majority vote for reinstatement;
All members may edit their own posts, but should refrain from editing others’ contributions, including the editing of comments;
Adopt the Barbershop Rule: No blatant promotion of political views or religion, unless it’s in the spirit of fun and is too awesome to be avoided; Current events and public figures are fair game (example, Paris Hilton).
After EPIC came up with the concept of Missions, maybe we have a weekly theme… each post might be related to a weekly “theme,” requiring bonafide members of TEAM AWESOME to post within the confines of an abstract “theme.” By abstract, I mean innocuous themes, like “Blue is the Best,” or “Mom Never Told Me,” or “My First Time.” Leaves it all open to interpretation, but provides a thread.
How ’bout a private “Members Only” chat room to discuss this in real time? I don’t know where everyone’s from, but we might be able to pick a time convenient for the eastern folk with the westerners once a week.
