Official Announcements

Post by RKR Connection on Thu 24 Mar 2016 - 19:22

Hello everyone,

I decided to create this forum so that every person interested in the dynamics between Kylo Ren and Rey from Star Wars TFA may freely express their opinions and thoughts. I would like this website to become a "peaceful place" for our community where no baiter/troll will be tolerated.

Hope you will enjoy your stay!


-Berhan

Dear all,

We announce that @Berhan has resolved the technical glitch that was preventing us from posting external links here in the forum. You should be able to hyperlink without getting the "must wait 7 days" error message.

If you have any problems posting, please PM one of the admins.

Dear Reylo community,

We are happy to introduce your new team of moderators:

@AnneNeville
@FrolickingFizzgig
@Ohtze
@Airemyn
@panki


As of now we consider our moderator team complete and are no longer accepting offers of volunteers to moderate. If in the future we need more hands on deck we will let you know!

We hope that with the expansion of our management team we can better serve the community and address your needs more promptly. The moderators are here to facilitate your experience at the forum. Please don't hesitate to contact them should any issues arise. As always, you can still reach out to the administrators as well should you have any concerns.

May the Force be with you!

Hello everyone!

Yesterday we discovered that our host, Forumotion, put a limit to the number of posts a thread can contain: 990 messages maximum. When it is reached, the original thread locks and the conversation automatically continues in a new one.

Therefore, we decided to create a new public forum -the "Archive Forum"- that will be used to gather all those locked threads (found in the main page). Everyone will thus be able to consult the indexed locked threads.

We apologize for this inconvenience.

Dear All,

We are very happy to announce that ISeeAnIsland has joined our moderating team!

As we welcome our newest staff member, we say goodbye to SoloSideCousin, who has moved on from her role of moderator. We are very grateful to her for her hard work and are glad that she will continue to be a member of the community.

Greetings everyone,

We want to remind our users that bashing is not permitted here. Specifically bashing of each other, of other ships/fandoms/communities, of actors and characters is not allowed.  Over time we have noticed a gradual surge in some of these behaviors, and we have been getting complaints from multiple users, both inside and outside of this forum.  While we do our best to avoid over-moderation and only intervene when necessary, moving forward we will be taking a firmer stance in order to ensure that we have a safe, positive environment for everyone to partake in.

To clarify: we continue to welcome critical thinking, healthy debate and discussion of opposing views - as long as ideas are conveyed in a manner that is respectful.

We all love Reylo but we are not a hive mind. Our diversity and difference of opinion is part of what makes us unique and interesting. We want a community where all are free to speak their opinion, but that needs to be balanced with respect of other people's right to disagree.

Thank you for your time, and please do not hesitate to message one of the staff if you have any questions.  We're glad to help!  

-The Rey & Kylo Ren Connection Staff

Hello everyone!

For personal reasons (understand: mainly assignments) I'm no longer around much. I thus preferred to transfer the ownership to @Darth Rowan and @MoonlitMoss who accepted it. I wanted to tell you guys that I really love our community, we've been through so much together and now here we are, stonger than ever. And as we can see, the potential spoilers are definitely developing our way (is anyone surprised?). Don't worry I'm not disappearing, I'll always be lurking -somehow. Each one of you plays a part in keeping this community alive, and I'm glad to see that this website has become a friendly and convivial space. May Reylo become "canon", and may the Force be with you! Very Happy

- Berhan

Dear Reylo Friends,

We are happy to announce that Darth_Awakened has joined our staff as moderator!

Due to an increase in our numbers and the resulting higher level of activity in our threads, we are also implementing a new no-spam/no back-to-back posting policy that had not been necessary until now. We are expecting more traffic going forward as the date of The Last Jedi release nears, and while we're glad to see our community growing it will mean having to make some adjustments that weren't needed in a smaller group.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns by PM'ing any of the staff.

-Reylo Skyforum

Dear Reylo Skyforum Community,

We want to let you know about some important changes affecting our staff and our forum.

We have been preparing for the rush of spoilers we can expect to hit the fandom in the weeks leading to the general release of The Last Jedi on December 15, 2017, and the expected initial screenings in the week of Friday December 8, 2017.

We are aware of the concerns of members who would like to remain active in the forum in the weeks prior to the TLJ film premiere, but who would also like to be shielded from spoilers. We also would like to consider those fortunate enough to see TLJ as early as possible, and who would like to be able to discuss all aspects of the film with their peers in the forum who are so inclined.

In order to meet the needs of our community, we would like to announce a forum reconfiguration as follows:
Starting on the week of November 24, 2017 we will open the following sub-forums for discussion of The Last Jedi:
The Last Jedi: MOVIE SPOILERS DISCUSSION Sub-Forum
The Last Jedi/Episode 9 Speculation: NO MOVIE SPOILERS ALLOWED Sub-Forum

The TLJ Movie Spoilers Discussion Sub-Forum will contain threads/topics for detailed discussion of events in the film and future directions of the story and fandom, including discussion of meta/cinematography/plot, reviews and fan reactions, podcasts, fanart/fanfiction, media articles, Tweets and other social media items. Confirmed spoilers originating from the movie will abound in this sub-forum.

The No Movie Spoilers Allowed TLJ/Episode 9 Sub-Forum will be a movie spoiler-free zone. It will still welcome in depth speculation about The Last Jedi and beyond.

  • This forum will have a thread/topic called The Last Jedi Q&A, where forum members wishing to access specific spoilers prior to personally seeing TLJ may interact with forum members who have seen the film in order to asks questions that will be answered under a spoiler tag.
  • Aside from the Q&A thread, no information originating from the movie will be allowed in the No Movie Spoilers TLJ/Episode 9 sub-forum. That includes meta/general discussion/fanart/fanfiction/Tweets and other social media posts.

Approximately 6-8 weeks following the release of The Last Jedi, once everyone has had the opportunity to see the film, we will plan to merge both TLJ discussion sub-forums into one, and will open a separate Episode 9 Speculation Sub-Forum. Until they are merged, our staff will carefully monitor both TLJ discussion sub-forums in order to assist our forum members in keeping spoilers from making their way to the spoiler-free areas.


We also have some important staff changes to share with you at this time.
We announce that @IoJovi, @ISeeAnIsland and @Darth_Awakened have stepped down from our staff after serving with dedication. We want to express deep gratitude and appreciation for them and what they have done for our staff and our forum.

IoJovi joined our staff on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, and ISeeAnIsland joined us on Thursday September 1, 2016. Long before that, they had already been an integral part of our community, helping to build this forum from the ground up after our group migrated from other less welcoming parts of the galaxy. Darth_Awakened was with our staff a short while, but has been a core member of our community since joining our ranks. We are happy to announce that they will continue on in the forum.

As we say goodbye to our former moderators, we welcome new members to our staff.
We are very happy to announce that Irina de France, SheLitAFire, and SkyStar have accepted the offer to join our current staff: @Darth Rowan, @panki, @Darth Dementor.

Please welcome our new moderators!

With the release of the The Last Jedi we can expect a significant increase in traffic and member registrations. We plan to expand our forum staff further in December to better serve and meet the needs of our community.

Until then, as always: May the Force Be With You!

The Reylo Skyforum Moderator Team:
@Darth Rowan, @panki, @Darth Dementor, @Irina de France, @SheLitAFire, @SkyStar

Dear All,

We are happy to announce an update in our display, courtesy of our IT expert, that will hopefully make our tagging process simpler and more user friendly:

The "MENTION" button has replaced the "MULTI-QUOTE" button.

You will now see a "MENTION" button next to the usual "QUOTE" button on the upper right-hand corner of posts:

Use this button to instantly tag the author of a post without quoting the text of their post.
This function will be especially useful when tagging users with "composed" names, which require straight quotation marks in order to tag. See below:

HOW TO TAG USERS:


  • For simple usernames (i.e, one word, no spaces or dashes: Berhan) just add @ next to the username: @Username
  • For complex usernames (i.e., two words, dots, numbers or dashes: Darth Rowan) add @ next to the username and also put the username in quotes: @"User Name".

*The quotes have to be straight quotes ("...") for the tag to go through - if the quotes are slanted/curved (“…”), it won't work.
*If you use the "QUOTE" button when replying to a post, the user's name will automatically be tagged along with the quote of their text in your reply and the user will receive an alert.
*The "MENTION" button will tag automatically without quoting.

As a reminder, you'll find more "How To's" that will simplify and improve your experience at the forum in our User Manual. In the coming weeks we are going to be updating the manual to include more simplified instructions and screenshots.

If you have any questions or concerns please PM any of the staff.

-Reylo Skyforum

Hello everyone!

Earlier today there was a screening of the first 10 minutes of The Last Jedi to press and select fans in Mexico. For that reason we decided to work overtime in order to speed up our plans to build a Death Star implement two distinct areas for TLJ discussion:


Going forward please be mindful to note if you are in the spoiler-free TLJ forum, or in the area for spoiler discussion and adjust your posting content accordingly.

We hope these changes will be helpful for those who wish to continue visiting the forum without getting spoiled for TLJ, and also to those who wish to discuss spoilers freely. As usual, if you have any questions or concerns please PM any of the staff.

-Reylo Skyforum Staff

Dear all, we want to make an important clarification of what is permitted here in terms of name-checking users on other platforms. For purposes of protecting people's privacy and avoiding online targeting, please see our rules:



Citing and naming other users and platforms

Mention of other Star Wars forums by name and copy-lifting of posts made in other Star Wars forums is not permitted.

Discussion and naming of specific users on any of other platform (forums, reddit, Tumblr, Twitter) is prohibited as it is considered a violation of privacy. This excludes public figures, entertainers, cast/crew, news sites, journalists, authors, educators and content creators such as podcasters.

Tweets and other social media posts by public figures, entertainers, cast/crew, news sites, journalists, authors, educators and content creators such as podcasters can be shared without redaction. Tweets and social media posts belonging to regular users on those platforms must be redacted to obscure the identity of the original poster.

A user on another non-forum platform can be credited/cited if their content is being shared for purpose of information/discussion (i.e., non-bashing purposes), but the user shall not be the subject of discussion - only the content.


Tl;dr:

  • You can mention content creators/entertainers/educators/authors/public figures by name, but you cannot bash them.
  • You cannot mention regular users (i.e., regular people) from other platforms by name here unless you are citing/crediting them - i.e., sharing fanart or sharing meta. In that case the user should not be the subject of discussion here, only the material shared.
  • If you are sharing a Tweet or social media post by someone who is not a public figure, you must blur the name/identity of the user.


If you have questions or concerns please PM any of the staff.
