I hope you are very proud, everyone has been lovely and welcoming. As a newbie, I feel more at ease than I’d imagined. So, thank you very much. :) xxx

Very good thread, it's clear that you care and take the wellbeing of all your members seriously and that in it's self is very reassuring and shows newbies they have picked the right site.

Good advice to newbies is always helpful but people have the choice, rightly or wrongly to do their own thing, hopefully we all make the right choices x

One of the reasons that we love being on Social Swinging, on a personal level, is the very real sense of community that has built up over the past two years. The way that members help each other out, support each other and encourage each other is something that makes us smile on a regular basis. Not only that, but the way all members care about the site and its ethos and are very protective towards it. None of us want the site to fall victim to the lack of attention, poor moderation and general air of a lawless, wild-west frontier town that has befallen other sites. If newbies appear on here - either new to the scene or as refugees from other, less reputable sites - they are always welcomed and, if needed, given guidance on the way we do things. Not only by staff, but by trusted members and this adds to the sense of community and helps to make SS the special place that it is.

The only thing that we (as staff) would ask, is that members be aware on how their messages may come across. Not all newbies are immediately au fait with our expectations on avatars, usernames, profile info etc. and, quite rightly, need some pointers from those who are. However, please be careful that your comments don't put off any potentially wonderful new additions to the family, due to the fact that they may be perceived as rude or, god forbid, clique-y! We may know how it's intended, other long-standing members may know but poor "@wewantaunicorn" or "@MrBigCock" may feel it unwelcoming to get a message saying "crap avatar" or "can't you find a better name?" Please try to be a bit more encouraging with the advice.
The last thing we want is for newbies to think anyone on here is unfriendly.
That is simply not true :)

I think this is overdue a timely bump.
One thing we don’t stand for is the ostracising of others because of whatever reason.
Unless you have personally had an issue with anyone, why ostracise anyone?
Is that what this site and community is? Because if that is the vitriol that’s breeding, then it’s not what we set out to do.
You don’t have to necessarily like any one person, or even meet their criteria or your own, to simply speak to others and be sociable.
Manners, being sociable, being able to discuss - regardless of anything: aside of those you definitely need to block, is what we’ve taken pride on this site for. For being managed. For being supportive. For being there when people need us, which we have done time and time again.
Not to sit back while people are ostracised.
This old post, is a good reminder of the sites ethos and values.
