-Please bear in mind that the HoI threads exist for discussions about bans and kicks, not for expressing appeals or demands to get a member unbanned or unkicked.  +If visiting ​the kick and ban notices ​thread, please ​bear in mind it is a closely moderated ​thread ​and __read ​the rules included there carefully__. The thread is __not__ ​meant for complaints ​or other free-wheeling posting
- +
-__**Recommendations for visitors of the HoI discussion threads:​**__\\ +
-**1.** Please discuss only the kickings or bannings of board members in the threads, don't veer off into other topics (use the [[http://​www.alternatehistory.com/​discussion/​showthread.php?​t=321526|spillover natter ​thread]] for the more off topic discussion subjects instead).\\ +
-**2.** Do not insult or "​gravedance"​ over kicked or banned board members, do not speculate about who should get kicked or banned. AH.com etiquette does not tolerate such behaviour.\\ +
-**3.** Do not try to pick fights with anyone in the discussions. If you disagree, disagree politely. Try to act as civil as possible at all times.\\ +
-**4.** When in doubt whether a board member has been really kicked or banned, please ​always check [[The Pond]] or [[http://​www.alternatehistory.com/​forum/​threads/​hall-of-infamy-ix.386055/​page-87#​post-12715953|the infographic]] first. If someone has Gone Fishin',​ that's not an infraction, just members requesting to have their account temporarily blocked while they'​re on a sabbatical, studying for tests at school, busy in work, etc. If someone ​is banned without the admin or moderator noting it and commenting on it in the HoI, that person was most likely a [[sockpuppet]] of an already banned member.\\ +
-**5.** When a moderator asks you politely to cut off an unproductive discussion in HoI thread, please obey his warning. Do not start an argument with the moderator.\\ +
- +
-The above are recommendations,​ //__not__// official rules. But keep them in mind whenever you enter a HoI discussion and are in an angry or frustrated mood. Counting to 10, sorting your thoughts, and so on, can help you think clearly and avoid getting into pointless arguments. +
- +
-During certain occasions, a mass banning of people may occur. Incidents of notoriety are recorded on the [[ah.com_conflicts|AH.com Conflicts page]].+
