    Exclamation Guidance: Phenotype/Physical Appearance Discussions @ AG's S. Asian Section

    Hi Regulars,

    After some deliberation, the administration has come to a decision regarding the active discussion of physical appearance/phenotype in Anthrogenica as a whole. We have just announced the changes (here). The new section is as follows:

    3.12 Discussions pertaining to physical appearance and/or phenotype that are quantitative and accompanied with structured analysis are generally welcome in Anthrogenica. However, subjective and arbitrary discussions relating to either subject that are agreed by our administration to breach section 3.11 above are generally prohibited. What constitutes as the aforementioned, and whether further action is required outside of content modification, will be carried out at the administration's discretion.
    However, we have decided to maintain the existence of this thread, and grant the S. Asian regulars with a partial exemption to this new Term.

    Although we're permitting that thread to exist and for the regulars here to continue discussing phenotype, there are some stipulations:
    1. Any discussion of racial taxonomy (classifications) will result in an immediate ban.
    2. Tangents relating to a given phenotype topic are to be limited to five (5) posts within the above thread.
    3. Phenotype/physical appearance discussion outside of the above thread will result in infractions per the discretion of our fine Moderators.

    For the record, we state our preference that members discuss phenotype/physical appearance in a quantifiable and data-driven manner, as outlined by the new Term (section 3.12). For example, we welcome discussions based on user-generated data regarding the frequency of different eye colors in India, whereas discussions regarding how 'Turkish looking' a given member's auntie looks will be subject to the stipulations above.

    We look forward to seeing productive and intellectually stimulating discussions pertaining towards the physical appearance of the diverse peoples of South Asia in this section moving forwards.

    Thanks for your time,
