Welcome to the new Current Events subforum! This subforum is dedicated to the discussion of current events.

Update: 5/8/2020

TO CREATE A THREAD

The point of this subforum is to discuss topical subjects with citable sources. It's not for creating threads just to start up discussions over your own personal / political opinions. IF you are going to start a thread, it MUST be discussing something topical and include a cited and reputable news source. No exceptions. Threads that do not follow this format will be locked.

In order to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for all who post here, however, we are laying down the following rules in addition to the existing Code of Conduct:
  • Please have respect for your fellow forum users. Any remarks aimed at the individual rather than their argument, however slight, will be considered an infraction. Likewise, intentionally inflammatory statements will be moderated harshly.
  • Racism, sexism or any other kind of hate speech will not be tolerated.
  • Gross generalizations about groups of people who visit the Escapist are not permitted.
  • Outright bullying or harassment will result in a permanent ban.
  • Please do not post dox, private photographs, or other personal data.
  • Keep threads on-topic. This rule will be enforced more strictly here than elsewhere on the site, and includes commentary on moderator actions within a thread.
  • Please do not carry grievances between threads. Keep focused on the topic at hand.
  • As ever, advertising, pornographic content and the advocacy of piracy and other illegal acts are strictly forbidden.
Failure to adhere to these rules or any other in the Code of Conduct may result in a thread lock and/or infractions for those involved. You have been warned.

Thank you, and have fun!

Everyone,

We're noticing a big uptick in reports in Current Events already.

Keep the threads civil and without personal attacks or they will be shutdown. We are not allowing that here and one user can ruin it for the rest of you. If you're not able to have a civil discussion, consider dropping out of that conversation.

Thanks.
