Report rule violations; don't engage
Modmail us if it isn't obvious why something breaks the rules.
If content breaks the rules, don't respond to it.
- Ghazi aims to hold itself to the highest standards of trans-inclusion
Trans issues and terminology are important and we encourage you to be up to date on these before engaging with trans people. User suggested resources can be found here.
Besides outright transphobia, outing people or speculating on their gender identity, whether cis or trans is not allowed. This includes posting comments from other forums that speculate.
Misgendering people, asking for details about an individual's surgery, and erasing non-binary experiences is also not allowed.
Don't dispute or otherwise delegitimize someone's understanding of their own gender or lack thereof.
If you are unsure whether your comment/submission would follow these rules, message the moderators first. * Civility is required
Disabilities and mental illnesses are not to be used as insults and should not be part of your comment unless speaking of your own or absolutely relevant.
Making racist/sexist/phobic comments is not ok.
Leave “gamer” stereotypes out of your comment (e.g. sexless, neck bearded, teenaged, basement-dwelling, etc).
Don't compare people to animals, or otherwise deny their humanity.
Don't be a jerk. There is a real human being on the other side of your screen.
Even if you think someone is the worst human on the planet, do not wish death or harm upon them.
No "justice porn". Posts regarding legal action and similar is allowed, but celebrating someone being harmed is not
Contrarianism for its own sake is unnecessary. * No calls to action
GamerGhazi is not an advocacy group.
No planning operations or similar. * No brigading
Comments that link reddit posts/comments must be formatted as np.reddit.com (NOT www.np.reddit.com). This is AutoModerator enforced.
Don't vote/comment when linked to another subreddit.
- No pro-GG posts
This includes “JAQing off”, intentionally asking leading questions while pretending to be a neutral party, or downplaying the actions of GG.
- Use spoiler tags
If it's not something that would be covered in the average review, please be courteous to other users and put it in a spoiler. Use
[type_of_spoiler](#s "spoiler text") to denote spoilers. Must be straight quotes, not angled quotes! Disable "smart quotes" in your autocorrect if having issues. Message mods for help.
* Moderator discretion
Moderators can take action even if none of the rules above are broken.
If you disagree with a moderator decision/action, please take it to modmail.
