Like I said, the current CoC is outdated and is being worked on.
Well the Head Bloggers all have an input on it. Since we come from varying time zones and have our own personal lives, it sometimes hard to get in contact with certain ones with a time that works for both.I'm guessing updated the CoC is harder than it sounds and it probably has to be accepted by lots of different people.
Normally yes except that we've already announced the changes to the rest of the bloggers, but again this goes back to what I said above. The bloggers know and understand the rules, but we have to finished writing the CoC in a way that is straight forward and clear to all without leaving any grey areas.I'd like to stick this out into the open, although it'd probably be easier to ask this in IM's.
If the current CoC (the one that is on forums and only version available to members of the community) is "outdated", would it not be considered logical that whatever infractions said blogger/s have concluded in the time that the previous (current) CoC was active would be the guidelines of the blogger? I'm trying to point out, that if there's a new CoC being worked on, the old one stands ground until the new one is released, or so it should be regardless of what it is about.
It's the same general idea with laws and rules, you can't point at parliament and say "They're talking about that law" and insist you'll get a free pass, and neither is it with rules - just ask around, there are punishments for breaking the rules, even though the rules are being worked on.
The CoC isn't ready. What would be the point of publishing a half finished piece of work? I'm telling you what the blogger policies are since they aren't posted yet. What point would I have to lie to you? I'd lose my job as a head blogger if I was openly misleading the general public.What I'm trying to say is; Publish the CoC now and then you can back up what you're trying to say, thus every comment after the release is void, or don't release it as it's obviously still being worked on and accept the simple truth. You have the guidelines up, everyone in the community agrees upon them when creating the account and thus the community managers also do. You can't say this or that out of hidden forums that aren't for the standard member of the community. :icon_idea:
Just got to finish homework then I can finish it off. If worst comes to worst and my mum moans at me to go to bed, it will be out tomorrow, but I will avoid that as much as I can, if it does happen I will make it worth the wait.

Phil, you should write this:
My blog will be done tomorrow. If it's not, read this again :icon_wink:.
