The mod team is very serious about listening to user feedback, and some of you have expressed your concerns regarding the lack of in-depth discussions. The new "Serious Discussion" flair attempts to tackle the problem by providing our community with an option to create posts dedicated exclusively to mature discussion of the show.
In threads that are flaired as Serious Discussion, the moderators will make an extra effort to remove any joke answers or off-topic comments, as well as those that don't contribute to the discussion in meaningful ways. For a comment to be considered relevant, it needs to be polite and clear, and contain a well reasoned and elaborated argument. Avoid logical fallacies and petty attacks to the characters, the writing, cast and crew, you're free to write a critique of the show, but do so with proper argumentation.
We're aware that some users don't speak English as a first language and we'll keep that in mind, other users participating in the discussion should do the same.
Basically, users are strongly encouraged to:
The original poster also has to open the thread in a way that guides discussion. They may present their opinion or question in a way that clarifies their position and points discussion in a certain direction so that others can respond appropriately. Failure to do this will result in their post being removed.
What if I don't want to follow these rules to discuss the show?
Then feel free to use the regular Discussion or any other appropriate flair, all other posts in this sub will remain unchanged. This flair is for those users in this sub that want to engage in talks with these kinds of predetermined rules. It's just an additional option.
Regardless of whether you're the target for this or not, thank you for supporting our sub, we hope you have a good time here!
