EDIT 3: Expanded with the new Troll Rule - going forward, any individuals that are highly aggravating, trollish, or unable to hold a basic human conversation with the rest of the forum will be promptly removed. This is to ensure the voice of the community is properly heard and respected, ensuring that those who are good and upstanding members of the forum who put in the work to improve themselves have the attention they deserve, while removing individuals who refuse to communicate properly and are rude/aggressive/aggravating/annoying to the rest of the forum.
EDIT 2: Expanded drama to include ban evasion and dragging out topics/arguments after moderator decision. Instituted due to some individuals ban evading and/or constant arguing with moderators as to their decisions - therefore creating constant drama.
EDIT: Expanded the complaints rule in regards to excessive, unreasonable demands. This is due to some members expecting unreasonable amounts of resources and time, to the point of impossibility. Normal asks and requests for features are completely fine - unreasonable means (as an example) asking for complete reformation of the website to cater to only their whim, whole books to be written explaining the modules/processes/effects of the subliminals to the tiniest detail as pertaining to them and their life situation, personal help with their personal life issues and situation, constant and excessive demands for something that borders on spam, etc. Also further clarified the changes that will take place going forward. Expanded conspiracies.
After lengthy discussions with @SaintSovereign, we have come to the conclusion that we are going to have to implement some official rules as Subliminal Club grows. These we will gradually implement throughout the company, including the support and forums.
As you all know, @SaintSovereign and I prefer quite a hands-off approach. We want to avoid moderating as much as possible, because we understand growth can be uncomfortable and to be completely honest - we simply don’t get any enjoyment from warning, banning and moderating.
We get sad when someone who could have been a genuine member of the community and reap the wisdom and knowledge here, while transforming their life with our subliminals, ends up abusing other members, us or the company, and having to be suspended.
That’s why we love using the Campfire Policy as a shining example of what we are trying to achieve, and what will be the official policy going forward.
The forum is the campfire - come here, talk with your closest friends and family about the most incredible secrets of reality, how to grow and improve yourself and achieve all the goals and ambitions you might have.
However, the moment someone flies in and tries to stomp on your fire, you throw him out.
Sadly, as anyone who has been with us for a little while knows, we sometimes get people starting drama, conspiracies, wild theories, etc., and then we end up having to write a lengthy response explaining things.
This is now changing.
Going forward, we will not entertain the following:
- Conspiracies - including misinformation.
- Drama, including attempting to drag out and argue moderator enforcement as well as ban evasion.
- Abuse of members, the company or us.
- Complaints that are due to user error and not us - including unreasonable, excessive demands and demanding.
- Advertising (mostly other subliminals or very similar modalities, and advertising of personal coaching). We also choose to avoid name-dropping other companies so as to avoid giving free marketing, as well as for the simple reason we cannot guarantee anything for other companies products.
- The Troll Rule - any trolls and individuals that the community finds insufferable and/or are unable to communicate with basic human social skills must learn proper forum behavior on first warning or will be suspended immediately and permanently.
Going forward, if we see any of this, our response will not be a direct response to you, but a three-tiered system of:
- 2 week suspension.
- Permanent suspension from the forum.
For the vast majority of you, this… won’t actually change much. Most of you are incredible members of the community. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and we honestly couldn’t have hoped for better users and customers.
In fact, this could free up more of our time to participate and help those who are great members of the forum, rather than spending time on trouble makers (and as you might know, we’ve wanted to do this for a while now).
Truthfully, none of the conspiracies we’ve seen have any basis in reality - and we have no obligation to answer conspiracies, dramas or wild ideas about us, the company, the subliminals or anything else related to us - with an in-depth response. It is an endless cycle (and at this point, a blockage to further growth) that is cutting into time we could be spending much more wisely such as developing the technology further or even just participating on the forum more directly.
To those who have any desire to start conspiracies or drama, know this - you do not have the knowledge or the technical how-to, to do anything regarding us, this company or our technology. We will not divulge any information about how we do our technology, nor will you be able to ever uncover it or trick us into doing it. Our subliminal technology is secure enough to be unbreakable, and you will never break into it or profit from our hard work and research.
These changes are not intended to stifle conversation. It really boils down to this - don’t be a jackass. For the vast majority of you, just keep going as you are. Those who were trouble makers will now have to follow the rules we’ve outlined.
Finally, we’ve decided that both @SaintSovereign and I will have to close down our private messages on the forum for a while. This is due to the complaints of support not answering - despite us stating that private messages are not an official support channel. Maybe in the future we will reopen them, but for now they stay closed.
Going forward, everything will be going through https://support.subliminalclub.com/. If you wish for us to comment on something, tag us on the post but do not spam us - we will get to you when and if we have the time. Remember, the forum is not an official support channel and while we want to get back to everyone, we really aren’t demigods.
Ultimately, the aim of these changes and what we expect this to result in is more thorough support, more time dedicated to worthwhile pursuits and helping upstanding members, much less drama and of course, more personal enjoyment from helping members on the forum for both @SaintSovereign and myself.
Thank you to everyone who has been an incredible member of the forum and part of Subliminal Club - you are one of the main reasons of why we continue to innovate and push ourselves, this company and our technology to ever greater heights. Each one of you is an integral component of the journey and success of Subliminal Club, and we don’t regret a single sleepless night that we’ve dedicated to Subliminal Club and you.
We are just getting started.
