So. Here's the thing.

There's been a recent rise of complaints in private by members regarding the general board atmosphere over the last few months, and following discussions between the staff we've agreed that the board rules have probably been followed a bit too lax as of late. As such, starting from this Saturday 00:00 UTC (so there's been a good day of notice), we're starting up Shark Week again, for an indefinite period.

For the vast majority of you who haven't been dicks to people and skirting around the ruleset nothing will change. Keep doing what you've been doing, you have nothing to worry about.

For those of you who have been - and you likely already know who you are - now is the time to shape up. Consider this your final warning before the sharks start biting.

For those of us who either have joined since the last shark week or simply don't remember it, can we get a quick recap of what that entails? Thanks.

tl;dr - don't be a dick, or you'll get holidays or worse.

I like the idea, but will it affect to Sonic Retro's crew as well? I was observing a lot this forum in last year and I clearly see that some people from SR's staff (fortunately, not too many, but still) are behaving even worse than "normal" users who are presenting bad habits and rude comments. Which is not a good sign, because (in theory) team of any site/forum should be a "shining example", or at least be very decent participants of forum.

I have hope though that this whole action will bring some good effect and clear dirty atmosphere. Good hunt!

I hope this is just about atmosphere and not rooted in political discord because if it is then I can't help but wonder it's being used as a tactic to shut discussion down.
