The Rules

By joining laserdisc.party, you agree to abide by our Code of Conduct. Spoiler alert: it's basically the same as the one over at toot.cafe, including their instance banlist (shout out to Nolan), supplimented by Dzuk's exhaustively-compiled banlist (shout out to Dzuk). We have a few little LP-specific additions, but overall, the short of it is this; don't be an asshole, use content warnings liberally (this includes spoilers, gore, sex, nudity, etc, but also workaday stuff like politics, mental health, and multi-toot posts), and for the love of God, be kind. If you can't do that, we'll have no choice but to bust out the banhammer. And if you think asking you to put sensitive content behind a CW is encroaching on your free speech, well, tough shit. Also, and I say this emphatically, if you're a Nazi, a bigot or otherwise a hate-peddler? Take a hike. We don't need or want you here.

We also invite users of l.p to consider the user experience of everyone else here. It's not just a matter of etiquette, really. It's a matter of being just a decent person. It costs nuthin' to make stuff easier and more pleasant for others, so yes, CW liberally, add descriptions to images, camel-case hashtags with more than one word in 'em.

We want laserdisc.party to be a place for movie people, writers included. But if your account is all news aggregation and links to your website, I'm afraid you'll have to pitch your tent somewhere else. Plugging your stuff is cool, but it can't be all you do.

Again, laserdisc.party is a place for movie people. You can toot about anything (within the rules, natch), but we'd like this place to be a "movie-flavoured general instance," if you will.

If you have any questions problems (harassment troubles, clarifications, movie recs) get a hold of Derek. He'll help you out.
