    Hi! You may have been prompted to 'Agree' to the site rules and there was no way to see the rules you were asked to agree to. The rules in question are the site's regular posted rules. For an unknown reason, the built in Xenforo software didn't allow you to view the link. We apologize for any confusion!

    Skal!

    Huh, thought it was just me having weird things happening. Didn't even try to click at the 'terms' link and just went right for the 'Accept', so... *thumbs up*

    Can we get a link posted so we can go read the language changes without going digging and what not, please? It would also be helpful if we could get a summary of what was modified.

    Glad to know it wasn't someone up to something nefarious, because I was reluctant to hit the "Agree" button without knowing what was going on. :confused:

    I doubt the mods would try and pull something sus like that. I'm sure it was a simple mishap that's easily fixed

    There were minor changes to language to clarify some terms, condensing chat rules, and no modifications to image rules.

    What I'm referring to is someone hacking into the site rather than an action by the mods.

    Ah i see. That would be terrible indeed. But i trust the site's security and the mods to protect us.

    What terms? I really don't want to go digging around in every set of rules. Would you mind being more specific please?

    We re-organized the site rules into sections to highlight the different types of rules, including instaban offenses, so that they were easier to find. We clarified that cyber sexual or explicit posts should not be made to public areas like statuses (This was already noted in the rules, because cyber sex is meant to be kept behind closed doors), but we wanted to make sure the language was as clear as possible to avoid confusion.

    The Chat Rules were condensed so they were easier to read, no rules were added. We added a section stating clearly that BD staff is not able to help with serious mental health issues, which was currently stated in our BD Online Safety Tips, but we thought it would be useful to state it plainly and leave the link for the suicide hotline for those members who might need it.

    No image rules were altered.

    Kind of fun having the link take us to a page where we had to accept the changes before we could actually read the changes, lmfao. Good thing it doesn't look like much has changed, and nothing that seems like it'll actually affect me :3

    I think most of us will just have clicked "Agree", based on the fact that we already use the site so unless there's been some massive change in the rules, we already agree to them anyway!

    Mind you, I was wondering if I'd accidentally done something wrong! *guilty conscience*

    You're taking the words out of my mouth. But then I saw that I could see my notifcations and alerts, so I sort of knew that I hadn't done anything wrong. Hence, I just clicked agree.

    Thanks for the info. I was wondering if there had been some huge change in the rules or something.
