One of the greatest issues we’ve had on #GaySA, which has escalated radically in the past few months – is the topic on what should and what shouldn’t be acceptable as nicknames in #GaySA. Users from the extremes of both sides and been very vocal regarding the matter. For the good of #GaySA, we need to find middle ground, conceding on certain points.
Various iterations of the rules regarding nicknames have always maintained a general similarity – whether they were enforced or not.
I agree with those users who feel too much has gone too far. However, I still feel that nicknames should be considered allowable to a point, whilst still being adult in nature. #GaySA is an adult chatroom and thus we should accommodate all our users as best we can.
I don’t want to come down on the situation too heavily. I’d prefer gradually phasing in the change in nickname-choice-culture. Keep this slow transition in mind when you participate in this exchange.

I’ve already received some great suggestions, but the more views we have from all users, the more balanced our outcome will be.
OPERATORS: Please inform irregular users especially about this page, encouraging them to participate and helping them to find it.
The primary motivation behind this is less about trying to root out nicks that offend people, rather to draw a line on how bashfully pornographic a nick may or more likely, may not be. Just aiming to keep things a little less tacky for a first impression.
I would like to see ops participating a lot more and working to involve users rather than sidelining them. I truly want this section to have diverse input from all kinds of users to gather excellent and reliable data.
