While we have relaxed our moderation when it comes to off-site content over the last few years, we've treated the change as an internal change in policy rather than a rule change. This resulted in the changes not being properly communicated to our community and the content creators out there. This forum is our way of saying: open the flood gates (as long as you follow the few rules we have set up).
To content creators:
The goal of this forum is to not just get extra eyes on the great content that's out there, we also want our users to discuss your content and give you feedback. We feel like other platforms aren't as good for long-form discussion and feedback, so we invite you to not just post your content but also engage with your viewers/readers/listeners. Use the TLnet community to help develop your content. Keep in mind that as long as a post follows the general rules of TLnet we won't ban or warn anyone. Our advice is to embrace critism rather than trying to stifle it.
To our community members:
In the words of the US Homeland Security: "If you see something, say something". We don't expect all content creators to all of a sudden flock to TLnet to post their content. If you see a piece of content that you like, post it! Help the content creator out by starting a thread for them. Just make sure there isn't already an old thread that you can bump, in case the content you found is part of a show.
