Why a Facebook Group for The ICs?
One of the tenets of The Independent Characters Podcast is making you feel like a part of our extended gaming group. Over the years we have had a lot of guests on the show, speaking about various topics. This group provides you a way to interact with the various hosts of the show in a way that the main Independent Characters Facebook Page does not.
While our Forums were great for their time, and arguably offer some features a Facebook Group does not, this is more accessible for the majority of our listeners.
Note that this group is going to be moderated by multiple people to ensure the high standards of our show and our community.
What kind of posts should go here?
This is a place for people to share their ideas and plans, what they are working on and what special things THEIR group is doing.
If you have questions or comments about the latest episodes of The Independent Characters Podcast, those can get posted and responded to here. Additionally, if you want to reach out to specific guest hosts of the show, they too will typically be on this group and can be contacted here.
What kind of posts should NOT go here?
The Independent Characters is about celebrating the Warhammer 40,000 game and hobby. Is the post you are about to make encouraging good discussion in a constructive, positive, and helpful manner? Or is it another complaint about Games Workshop prices? Even criticism of Games Workshop rules or products are fine, if they are well thought out and constructive.
Think hard about the post you are about to make before you click submit. We leave it up to you. However, if a post is going to be removed, you can expect a PM from a group moderator first.
The group is considered PG-13 so please keep foul language to a minimum. Additionally, personal attacks against others are grounds for an immediate ban. Please report such incidents to a moderator.
Advertisements for your business, your painting commission work, and that type of thing should be approved by a moderator prior to posting. If you have any doubts, please reach out to a moderator.
We also don't want to see the same topics here posted in every other 40k group out there. So if you are posting the same thing in other groups, please do not post it here.
One last thing...
We thought long and hard about opening this group. There are a lot of Warhammer 40,000 groups out there and much like Podcasts, a lot of them are fulfilling the exact same purpose of the next one. It is important to us here that this not be just another Warhammer 40,000 Facebook Group, but a place where our listeners can come and enjoy follow up discussion about topics raised on the show and share ideas which may ultimately make it onto future episodes.
Additionally, we intend to reward members of our group who contribute regularly in the spirit of the show and the community.
Thanks for reading this long post. And thanks for joining our community!
