There's no such rule against posting mutual aid requests.

There's no such rule against posting mutual aid requests.

The rule refers to INDIVIDUALLY messaging or mentioning people and trying to personally guilt them into giving you money. This rule was created directly after someone scammed a member of .lol out of a lot of money. This was way back when the instance was small and I basically forgot about it until the drama started.

Why is it worded that way? Because I was dealing with a specific thing and that's just how I wrote it. Nobody was posting mutual aid requests here at the time, I never even heard of the term "begpost" until a couple of days ago, and nobody has EVER been warned or banned for posting mutual aid requests.

Stop listening to people on other instances. I create the rules, I enforce the rules, and those people are wrong.
