Dear forum members,
Although the Hebrew forum welcomes questions about all forms of Hebrew -- from Biblical Hebrew to Modern Hebrew -- recently there has been a disproportionate number of threads about pre-Modern Hebrew on the main page of the forum. This has reduced the visibility of threads about Modern Hebrew. In an effort to achieve a better balance and avoid privileging any particular form of Hebrew, the moderators of the Hebrew forum have decided to apply the following rules:
1. Thread Title Labels
When you start a thread about any form of Hebrew other than Modern Hebrew (i.e. about pre-Modern Hebrew), you are required to add a label to the thread title indicating the form of Hebrew you are asking about. Use a label for any form of Hebrew spoken before its revival, such as Biblical Hebrew, Mishnaic Hebrew or Medieval Hebrew. If your thread is about Modern Hebrew, do not use a label.
2. Quota of Pre-Modern Hebrew Threads
The number of threads about pre-Modern forms of Hebrew will be limited to 5 out of the top 10 threads on the first page of the forum. Any pre-Modern Hebrew threads exceeding the limit will be temporarily hidden and closed for a period of several days to a few weeks.
If 5 out of the top 10 threads have labels, please do not start or reply to a thread about pre-Modern Hebrew (replying to a thread bumps it to the top of the forum). Instead, wait patiently until there are fewer than 5 pre-Modern Hebrew threads among the top 10 threads.
If you have any questions about these new rules, please contact us via Conversation.
Thank you for your cooperation.
