To all members of JWFan,
Long time board member @Incanus has decided to step down from his Moderator position. This leaves Ricard and Jason as the forum moderators for the time being. We do not have any immediate plans to add another moderator to replace him. Incanus is still a member of our forums, and you can look forward to reading his review of the new "Spotlight on John Williams" album on the main page soon.
We'd like to extend our thanks to Incanus for a job well done for many years!
Now onto more pressing matters. In recent times, the forums have been drifting away from its original intention (a place to share a love of film music with other fans) and more towards a broader discussion forum of many topics, often venturing into political territory, with all the consequences that this entails. In order to continue to improve the forum experience, we have therefore decided to completely rewrite the Forum Rules, which are now effective immediately.
Also immediately, we will be changing the way we moderate. We will now be using our discretion to delete posts that violate the rules, and increasing the length and frequency of bans as we consider necessary. This moderation will now exclusively be done from under a new forum account titled "JWFan Moderators".
The best way to draw attention to posts that violate the rules continues to be the "Report" feature, which is available under every post to logged-in members. Please note that you will not receive direct feedback about your report, but know that all reports are taken seriously and will be attended to as our availability allows.
Also note that we will not be deleting old posts or threads, as the new rules only apply to new content from this point forward. However, some old threads will be locked if the subject matter and/or recent content in them is considered to be a violation of the new rules.
These changes have been designed with the intent of making the JWFan Forums a place where all people interested in productive discussion of film music and related media can feel comfortable and enjoy their time doing so. Thank you for bearing with us as we adjust and adapt together.
Ricard and Jason
