New GPWA forum moderation practices
The GPWA strives to be a place where members share their knowledge, experiences, concerns and questions. To accomplish our goals, we need to operate our forum in a way that opinions can be openly expressed. But these opinions also cannot be seen as harassment or personal attacks. To that end, we have changed our moderation practices with the goal of creating a more collegial environment. Please read this thread for more details. Your feedback is important to us.
