Read the rules before proceeding!

Topic: About commenting

Posted under Off Topic

So, whenever I'm wanting to type a comment. I really get nervous if people thinks it's creepy, offensive, spam, trolling or role-playing because I don't know if other users and staff will take it as a rule violation or not. I would never break the rules on purpose. Would it be appropriate to report our own comments and ask the staff if they think it breaks the rules or not?

So once again as general reminder, if you break the rules, you will first get neutral warning, then negative warning, then suspension and then permaban, also records decay in 6 months and breaking rules of other categories do not count towards same warning.
That means, you will have to fuck up 4 times during 6 months period to get permabanned from the site and during those 4 fuckups you can do several more fuckups on breaking other rules in the meanwhile. (of course if you are literally breaking all every rule on every category at tall times, staff can ban you sooner if they deem so, but on paper, you should be fine)

Also good way to think of commenting is that could you say that out loud in a public showing? Because it is as simple as how you would talk to people in public and how would you talk to your friends and partners.
Most of the time if someone is getting warning for creepy comments, they were reported by another user who felt like the comment was worth reporting. This is kinda also why I say that this isn't a pornsite, because even if we have lots of it, we still handle material as artwork primarily and people who do get warned for creepy comments usually comment like people do on rule34 and porn video sites.

Me and other users have been confused as to why this user named tiamat5 was permabanned for being accused of a creepy comment but he wasn't even talking about wanting to have sex with the characters he was just pointing something out.

If it's because he called the parents "mommy" and "daddy" then that's not creepy. Kids and even adults still call their parents "mommy" and "daddy in real life. So if it's okay for people to say that regardless of age in real life then why isn't it okay here?

Don't forget that examples listed in records are typically only the tip of an iceberg (or so I'm guessing, as I'm hardly in a position to know anything useful). That means there's a lot of other creepy comments the user has left lying around that show a persistent pattern of poor behavior.

If I had made the comment you link to, it's likely no one would notice or care. The moderators would look at my other behavior on the site and figure that I just made a hit-or-miss attempt at witticism that was a complete miss. At worst, I'd likely just get a warning via PM that I wasn't quite as clever as I thought I was. Flubs, goofs, and verbal faceplants happen, and the e621 administration know this.

On the other hand, the user you selected as an example appears to have habitually made creepy comments galore. Warnings were apparently ineffective as were ensuing records. The admins didn't ban them on a whim and then simply ignore any potential appeals of that ban.

Admins don't just look at the one problem comment. They have to take into account the user's other comments and the context behind those comments. My one hypothetical screw-up of a comment is hardly comparable to the cited user's long term pattern of behavior, deemed constantly creepy not just by admins, but also other users.

That is insane amount of comments, they spend whole month of their life just to write comments essentially. Also if I remember correctly there's hundreds of reports from users about their comments.

I generally do not mind any of these comments, but at the same time aknowledge many of their place is not here or they could've voiced their opinions in more mature manner.
If artist likes that someone talks dirty of their stuff, you can go to sources to do that.
