We've updated our Community Rules!

This includes new rules about personal drama and political content as well as stricter rules about art theft and AI art. We have also redesigned the rules page to make it clearer what isn't allowed, and expanded on some of the previous rules and info.

Please take a moment to re-read the full platform rules:

Any feedback is welcome.

An excerpt of the new rules:

-------------------------

New rule: No drama or politics, please

LambdaGeneration is a gaming community and not a world forum. We want to bring people together who love Valve games. We therefore strive to keep the site free from content which provokes division, toxicity, or is otherwise irrelevant to Valve games and topics.

The following is *not* allowed:
- Invoking personal drama and feuds in public posts and comments
- Divisive behavior, trolling and flaming
- Public shaming and witch hunting
- Invoking irrelevant political discussion in community posts and comments
- Political messaging, campaigns or propaganda
- Inappropriate depictions and memes of recent wars, political events or real-life tragedy

This excludes:
- Profile posts (posts not in communities) may be used for *civil* political discussion

-------------------------

New rule: Credit artists 

Art theft is not tolerated on LambdaGeneration. You must credit artwork and animations that you didn't make.

The following is *not* allowed:
- Posting artwork or animations that you didn't make without credit
- Passing others' work as your own (plagiarization)
- Passing AI generated artwork as human-made art

This excludes:
- Memes
- Links/embeds to content uploaded by its own creator
- Content you have commissioned or have legal rights to distribute

-------------------------

We also plan to add further rules to restrict AI art in fan art categories, however this is not ready yet as it will be accompanied with a new feature in the near future.

You guys rock. I joined LG and was super surprised at how well you guys maintain a positive, constructive community rather than having everyone lashing out at people for no reason or shouting racial slurs every 5 seconds (Looking at you, Steam community hub)

Thank you for the kind words. It’s certainly not easy, but we’d like to try be a haven from the oceans of junk out there right now.

I disagree with one rule. I do not know if it was already added or if it's new. In the "follow the law" section, it says rebelling against the Combine is allowed. I will not condone this neglect towards clearly harmful behaviour and have decide to take matters into my own hands and do nothing about. Stay safe and join the Combine. Do not resist it.

From my experience I can now say that LambdaGeneration is most clean and positive communtiy based on Valve's games by its nature (second one is ScrapTF ig but it's only dedicated to TF2). I see that even if you do not have any financial profit from this platform, you are still trying to support the entire site and its community with absolutely no negativity, drama, racism/xenophobia, hatred and endless pointless arguments, which is what most of the rest of the Valve gaming communities does in some quantities. And I guess also that you can add some kind of donate features to site, I think that might be interesting for some of users to be more "special" here. Anyway, just wanted to say "Thank you" for everything, LambdaGeneration team for this amazing & peaceful site for another Valve games fans/enthusiasts, seeing clear gems and talentlful authors here really means a lot. ❤️

you guys should also add a "dumb down" button that explains the rules in caveman terms

LambdaGeneration

You could summarize half of this: Don't be an ass

Very happy about the AI image restrictions. They remind me of (multiplayer) aimbots, even if there's a good use for them somewhere, I want to be able to enjoy games/art without them. Also this website is so peaceful and friendly, thank you LambdaGeneration <3
