Re: Please add instructions on how to add TW tags

There's a thread in Administrivia about tw tags, which is the thread referenced in the FAQ. In the most recent post in that thread, we described two different ways to apply tw tags. You can read that post here: http://friendsofcaptainawkward.com/foru ... 30#p218415

Re: Trigger warnings: a how to guide

The syntax you are using is not quite correct. You can see this by looking at your post and seeing that the tw is not covering your examples. The easiest way to apply tw tags is to type the words you want to cover. Then select them, and while they are selected, click the tw button above the text box...

Rule clarification

Rule 8.1 is about respecting the privacy of others. Due to several incidents over the last few months, we have added a paragraph to the rule to make explicit that this is a closed community.

Jargon and moderation

((Mod hat still on)) Grangiest, your post asking about a mod note addressed to another user in that other user's thread is a derail. It did not move the discussion of that user's problem forward at all. Derailing is against our rules, and so is posting issues with moderation in a forum-wide way. See...
