Political Tag System Mk17!!Trixie ## Mod (ID: c3a604) No.312351
Due to a large majority of community request and support, we have decided to create a tag for political posts.
Users of the website will be able to optionally filter posts tagged "political" by de-selecting "show political threads" from the settings menu.
For the purposes of this tag, "politics" will be defined by it's dictionary definition of:
The art or science of government or governing, especially the governing of a political entity, such as a nation, and the administration and control of its internal and external affairs.
If you are OP, please consider if your thread topic meets this criteria. If your post meets this criteria, and is not properly tagged, a tag may be placed on it at moderators discretion.
Please also consider using this tag for topics you personally feel may be tangable to politics, as a courtesy to those who wish to filter.
The mod staff will primarily be viewing this as a tool of self regulation for users to make /ef/ a more enjoyable place for themselves and the folks around them. We plan to remain as hands off as possible when it comes to grey area.
Repeated attempts to circumvent this filter in the persute of trolling and being "technically correct" by the same user may be warned against before their posts treated in the same manner as spam.
Users who think a post in a grey area meets their personal interpretation of politics can request to OP that they be more thoughtful in the future, or choose the option to hide the thread via the [ - ] symbol in the top left corner of the post.
Remember: We are a community of ~30 people on the internet just trying to pass some time and enjoy ourselves. /ef/ is primarily a self governing community, and this is a tool for YOU, the user, to help make it a place that is enjoyable for all.
