A needed change that I’m with all the way. The DevForums ought to get back into that professional community atmosphere where we’re here to share, improve ourselves and each other, not bring each other down. I personally don’t think it’s strict at all, it’s something that should’ve been present some time ago. This especially goes with the volume of people being accepted nowadays. It’s easy on everyone; it discourages members from poor behavior and it helps staff track moderations better.
Also, curious question, why is this in Public asopposed to Inception? I’m just thinking now that this is a DevForum-only related announcement in terms of the forums, so I thought it’d make more sense to put it there. I don’t know, I’m not staff.
