Dear whom it may concern,
I hope this finds you well.
I am writing this open letter to enquire as to whether Gold Derby has a code of conduct and if not whether one can be implemented to keep the forum a safe space for users and to help all users (including myself) to be able to be careful with their use of language and attitude towards other users on these threads.
Often using these threads it is very easy for miscommunication to arise between users and for conflict to arise as a result of it. We’re all very passionate on here about film, tv, theatre, music etc but sometimes that miscommunication can lead us to often get into long tiresome arguments, shaming, name calling and various accusations in threads and overall feelings of being down, discontent and anger to arise as a result of experiences on here.
I’ve spoken to various users who have said that they feel as if they get “bullied” on here by other users. Now I don’t think users are intending to behave aggressively as like I said we all get very passionate on here sometimes and sometimes we end up blurring the lines between what is and isn’t appropriate to post on these forums or what is an appropriate tone to use and what isn’t. I myself am no saint on here which is why I’m enquiring about a code of conduct on here. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it’s a safe space for users when posting on Gold Derby and it feels like the issue of the safety and (I guess) wellbeing of users isn’t taken seriously on here. Now that may not be the case and I do commend the mods for removing users who have harassed users on here but sometimes it feels like it’s not enough or that several instances on here could have been prevented if users knew how to really approach conversations on here with a code of conduct.
I look forward to hearing from whomever is the best person to take this up with soon.
