    I wonder if someone goes off topic, how strict do we have to be about that? I mean if someone starts advertising their stuff in a thread that's obvious, but often people just make a little joke or mention something else that popped up in their head and that wasn't with bad intentions. What about that? Lots of people do it, including me (but I always mention 'this is off-topic', not just hijacking the thread)

    Exactly. I'm fairly lenient as far as kidding around is concerned; I kid around a lot, and when it comes to things popping in your head, I'm the poster child for that. I think it just boils down to using good old-fashioned common sense, as a poster or as a moderator. On the one hand, as a moderator, I don't want to be the unbendable "poster police," but on the other, I know that I have a responsibility to see that things don't get out of hand. Everyone just needs to use good judgment.

    We have had a lot of fun moments here; for instance, who knew that a topic about glitter makeup could turn into a whimsical convo about glitter-farting fairies and unicorns?

    If it is like the other forums I am on, only moderators can see infractions that members have and how many. Members will see infractions but only after they get them, and they can only see their own infractions. On my other forum it shows up in your CP just above the the 'reputation you received'
