Important Notice for Newcomers!
« on: April 18, 2007, 07:33:00 AM »
Welcome to Flat Earth Q&A. This board is a place where you can ask questions about Flat Earth Theory. Please note that questions about Flat Earthers, the Flat Earth Society and The Conspiracy do not relate to Flat Earth Theory itself, so please keep them in Flat Earth General.

Most of you probably have many questions to ask, but before you start a new thread, stop and think for one moment:

  • Is my question the sort that naturally springs to mind when faced with a theory like Flat Earth Theory?
  • Is it likely that other people would think of the same question?
  • Is it a sensible questioning of the theory behind Flat Earth?

If your answer is "yes" to any of the above, then read along. These boards have been in existence since 2004, so your question has most likely been asked before. The very first thing you should do is to read the FAQ. FAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions. The FAQ is quite informative, and will give you a basic understanding of Flat Earth Theory. So, please read it and save us the hassle!

In addition, it is highly recommended that you use the search function to find other relevant responses to your question. You can also check the Flat Earth Wiki for more technical and detailed explanations.

If your question has never been asked before, or if your question is commonly asked but you aren't satisfied with the answers, feel free to post it and we will try our best to answer it. Please, however, refrain from creating threads to ask questions already included in the FAQ repeatedly, as doing so will only result in them being locked or deleted and you directed to it instead.

This forum is subject to the Forum Rules. Please help us to keep the site in order by using the forums as intended and creating your topics in the correct forum. Thank you.

**Update 2014.07.17**
Flat Earth Q&A's format is shifting a bit. To limit the number of debates arising in our Q&A forum, questions will only be answered by flat-earthers or those providing genuine flat-earth responses. Asking questions is still open for anyone, but starting debates, using questions to start debates, or posting disingenuously will be considered low content / off-topic posting and will be treated as such.

Just an update, because I've noticed a lot of petty rule-breaking of late. Like the other FE related boards, Flat Earth Q&A is for serious discussion of Flat Earth Theory. Now, things aren't as strict in here as in Flat Earth Debate, but zero-content, off-topic or abusive posts are still against the rules. Furthermore, if a mod warns you that doesn't mean you're winning the argument or getting under someone's skin, it just means you''re breaking the rules. If you post within the rules, you'll be fine, but breaking the rules will result in warnings and possibly the suspension of your account.


It should also be noted that disputing moderation outside the Suggestions & Concerns board is against the rules, as long disputes about moderation inevitably derail threads and ruin discussion. If you want to complain about a warning or ban, do so in S&C, because you'll be banned for doing so elsewhere.


We don't take any pleasure in issuing bans, as it leads to unnecessary friction and drama, but we will issue them if necessary. The rules are there to make discussion orderly and enjoyable for everyone, and it is the moderating team's task to enforce them. Finally, it is your responsability to familiarise yourself with the Forum Rules; ignorantia juris non excusat.
