This reminder is in no way intended to call out a single person, but rather to call attention to an important topic; ALL comic book fans are fellow members, whether they are fans of DC, or of other publisher’s titles.
We recently had a thread that we decided to remove that asked what we on the forums didn’t like about another publisher. If you saw the thread, you know what I’m referring to. Because it did not explicitly violate any of our community guidelines, we decided to allow it, in the interest of an open discourse. But it didn’t quite sit right with us.
Again, no one did anything wrong here, and it was a spirited conversation that stayed relatively civil. To make sure our expectations are clear, we will be working to craft a series of Posting Guidelines to complement our Community Guidelines. More on this in the next few weeks.
After retiring to the study to brood in the moonlight, the decision to remove the thread was made. We do continue to support expression of any and all opinion, given that it’s expressed with the Community Guideline s in mind (yourdcu.com/help). But above all, our priority is to cultivate a positive community where any comic book fan can feel supported.
Let’s work together to show the world that we as DC fans are striving to be part of a positive, more inclusive comic book culture. We have the best freaking comic book community around (if I do say so myself), and I’m incredibly excited to see just how much impact we can make together.
In the words of the Godfather…
