Building good communities is more important then enforcing rules
Helping someone understand why rules exist is more important then telling them what the rules are
You don’t have to build your communities like you’re a company. You can just TALK to people.
DO be explicit about your community norms. DO use your moderation tools to enforce them where necessary. But for the love of god, don’t mistake rules lawyering for an actual community.
