    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

Just someone who thinks they're special and unique and better than everyone because they're different. Ala snowflake. The term comes from the scene in Fight Club and back in the day when the term first appeared, it was called SSS or "special snowflake syndrome" Kek.

Nowadays the term has widened to also explain scam artists and rude people. Most are females since the term is mainly used by the female side of internet truth/gossip forums but dude's aren't exempt. Hopefully that helps clear things up. And just to make things clear, a snowflake is not the same thing as a lolcow which is basically a person who's internet presence is a joke. (That side the internet has gotten pretty even on the male to female ratio haha.)

Here, have this video.

Snowflake-
a person who think they are OMGUNIQUE!, but is, in fact, just like everyone else.
"You're a unique little snowflake, just like everyone else."

It's the first time I looked up the meaning of the word. It's in the Urban DIctionnary.

As a matter of fact, I know a lot of artists, and they all seem to suffer from SSS. :)
