Egg Field Notice

Events




Hey guys,

We love to see that everyone is enjoying the egg field but we want to have a quick word with you all about the messages being put in.

While we're respectful of everyone's different religions, faiths, and belief systems, we must ask that you keep them out of the egg field. Not everyone will share the same beliefs as you, and there are many who have had traumatic experiences within religious groups, so while your messages may be meant in a light-hearted or good intended way, the people those messages can get to may not read them in that way.

We will not be taking actions against people who have already put in religious messages, unless the messages themselves cross a line or rule that we do not allow, but we do request that you do not put more in.

Thank you for listening, and happy egg hunting to all!

It's been requested a few times that I add this to the news post:

From the Terms of Service:
"The following topics are considered to be mature [M]: politics, religion, sex, sexual innuendo or jokes, artistic nudity, sexuality, self harm or other such behavior or thoughts and swearing."

These subjects should be limited to forum threads that are indicated as M/mature in the title, and as such are not appropriate to be shared in the egg field as no such indication can be made prior to the egg being selected.

I hope that helps to further clarify matters =)

Thank you oh so very much! I really am grateful for this. Aywas is a place I go to, to get away from the vast majority of religious content, and the holidays are run in a way that makes my atheist little heart glad. I love the fact that the staff is continuing to be respectful to all.

So does this mean we shouldnt put Wishes You to Have the best Easter Possible..in eggs? then cause it is a religious holiday ..?

Would it be better to rename the entire holiday Springtime Festival or something? Easter itself is a religious holiday as Kanein points out.

Yeah this makes no sense, since Easter eggs are religious in origin. If you don't want messages like "Happy Easter!" just avoid opening Easter eggs....?

I think so long as we stick with the elements of spring and eggs and new life celebrating the spring equinox the way Easter is done throughout various religions, and avoiding anything specific to one, it should be cool?

Saying "Happy Easter!" Isnt the problem. There were some very specific religous messages in the eggs. Many cultures celebrate Easter, but we dont need things mentioning Jesus and God, thank you!

For a large amount of people, easter wasn't really a religious holiday. It has roots there, but it's grown into something quite different for a lot of people. Similar to how christmas has grown and spread. I appreciate that this is being enforced, it popped up a couple years back and a lot of people voiced that the religious messages were something that made them feel uncomfortable and wanted to avoid the field entirely because of it (myself included).

Happy easter isn't religious, have a good easter/enjoy your easter holiday/etc isn't religious. People were specifically sticking in religious book quotes and imagery, or going a little too far sometimes to try and spread religious messages and that was the problem. Many many many non-religious people celebrate easter in their own way, even if they have past negative history with one religion or another.
