Update of ToS

Hi all, I have made some changes to the Terms of Service for the site. If you’re interested, check it out:


The changes make no substantive difference, they just remove some boilerplate, and add a summary for humans.

The changes are following feedback that the ToS was too long and legalistic, which it certainly is. It is basically just boilerplate we inherited from the stock Discourse install. I have taken out some of that; for example, stuff dealing with paid accounts, ads, and the like.

But much more should be removed. I don’t see any reason why ToS should be more than a few paragraphs. If anyone knows a simple solution, let me know!
