    I love Reddit for everything that it is. I love it so much that I took their Reddiquette, changed it, and made the Tediquette. Why? This was done because I believe in a civil community that benefits from sharing quality information.

    This applies to everyone to include myself. Rarely will I respond if I don't have anything additional to add to the content. I will give it a like or something like that and move on. The Tediquette is there to guide you, the Team, Moderators and myself. This community should be built on high-quality content that brings people in. Having a post that doesn't add to the conversation or a flame fest adds nothing as a whole. I will admit that I moderate harshly. Facebook groups hardened me :)

    I believe in quality content, grammar, punctuation, and communicating meaningful thoughts. I also understand that not everyone is perfect and I am very aware of where the balance is. I ask you to take a read through the Teddiquette and see what is there.

    The community deserve content they can gain from. It's more than just the content, it's the way we hold ourselves in the community as well.


    Edit December 20, 2016: I moderate harshly against people selling, spamming, taking advantage of the community or someone in it. I moderate harshly against the people with ill-intent. I am adding this to clarify that I don't moderate harshly as in "I would be a jerk to anyone and everyone". This niche comes with a lot of negatives as well as the positives.

    You'll also note it's why the Teddiquette applies to all of us to include myself. Again, just for clarity as someone took it as "Nah, not a fan of having moderators up my ass." on Twitter. I have no intention on being up anyone's ass, but I guess I needed to add it in case someone else thinks that's how things are around here. Hope this helps for others thinking about joining.

    You are welcome and I also fixed your Twitter handle so you don't have to add the image to get seen. Now each time you post it will show under your name.

    Thought it best to review the tediquette before ranging too far afield here. Do also agree with proper grammar and pronunciation. It is somewhat irritating to respond (to folks in text) when it is required to go to a hieroglyphics alphabet in order to sort out what they are trying to convey.
    Having said that, do abuse the English language from time to time, but is intentional, and usually for effect-such as "foo-pah" for faux pau. And do manage to put my foot in it more often than not. So as to not confuse the reader, will try to remember to put quotation marks around improper usage when I drop down into "earthy" mode and start slinging metaphors.
    As I acquire more knowledge on the primary focus of the site, hope to have something beneficial to add.

    That was a great reply @AKA Jose and spelling errors or grammar mistakes. I target the ones that are intentional and it's so we can all have a reasonable conversation. My intent with writing the Teddiquette was to bring some kind of baseline that everyone can refer to. This is a very easy going community and I want anyone who joins or reads our conversations to feel at home. That's my real goal. I want a community that loves to be here and wants to make things better for all. Thank you for being a part of it.
