Public description

Welcome to /r/mormon!

 

People of all faiths and perspectives are welcome to engage in civil, respectful discussion about topics related to Mormonism. Civility is expected of all participants.

 

Consequences for violating community standards can include

 

  • Community pushback
  • A written warning from mods
  • Removal of post/comments
  • Temporary ban
  • Permanent ban

 

The bigger the rule breaking the bigger the punishment. Moderators will seek to use the least-severe action whenever possible, but chronic violation of the standards of the sub will result in escalating consequences. Please read our Reminder of Community Standards for more information. Also, you may read the full rules here

 

Behaviors to avoid:

 

Doxxing

Doxxing is posting personal or identifying information about others online. Doxxing includes posting identifying info of someone without their knowledge and/or moderator approval.

  • Pictures
  • Names
  • Contact information
  • Social media links
  • Work affiliations

An exception to this rule is if this information was first made public by the person whose info it is or it has identified by major/trustworthy news outlets.

 

Civility

To function peacefully, we expect a degree of civility and respect for everyone within our subreddit. Refrain from the following:

  • Advocating violence
  • Threatening
  • Bullying
  • Judging worthiness or sincerity
  • Bigotry/demeaning others
  • Sweeping generalizations
  • Personal attacks

Challenge the worth of ideas, opinions, and beliefs, not people.

 

“Gotchas”

Approaching a conversation with the goal of dismissing, silencing, or converting someone is a poor foundation of respect and civility. It ultimately leads to the conclusion that there are no alternatives, and thus, there is nothing to discuss.

Our goal of our subreddit is to foster a community that seeks to understand and be understood through valuable discussion. This requires a willingness to accept that other people will come to conclusions and hold beliefs that are different from yours.

 

Spamming

Spamming as we define it is:

  • Completely unrelated to Mormonism or the conversation
  • Low effort or trolling posts
  • Links that redirect to an unsafe site
  • Bots who's purpose is unwanted
  • Sending/commenting/posting the same thing many times

These are typically done by users who don't participate in /r/Mormon

Please DO NOT report every link that is posted without commentary or that you disagree with. The report button is not a super downvote.

 

Brigading

Coordination to target and harass someone or another community. Brigading is a violation of reddit site-wide rules.

We define this rule in 2 ways:

  • Participating in brigading /r/Mormon
  • Advocating for brigading another place, person, group, or organization

 

Actions that jeopardize the sub or its users

Illegal actions, illegal speech, and other actions which could be harmful to this subreddit and/or lead to it being banned by reddit admins
