When a rail accident with a fatality is reported, Railpage Australia staff will start a new sticky thread inside the relevant forum. If a thread longer than 25 informative posts without needing excessive moderation exists on the incident, it will be cleaned up as per the rules of this policy and adopted as the official discussion thread on the incident. There will only be one thread per incident. By posting in the thread, users will automatically agree to the rules of the Fatality Policy, which will be inserted in the first post of the thread. Only informative discussion related to the incident will be allowed. The following types of posts will be deleted:
- Condolences posts
- Unsubstantiated accusations ("finger-pointing")
- Reminding others of the rules - we have moderators for that! If a message is posted where the main topic of the post is in the above list, it will be deleted by Railpage Australia staff, and the author warned.
