The heart of our community is our Facebook group, join Galactic Hitchhikers HERE
This living document will serve as guidelines for all aspects of the Galactic Hitchhiker’s community.
A Fellowship of the Frood.
Galactic Hitchhikers- field researchers and contributors to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. A place for those who hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where our towels are.
We see the Guide as a filter to see the universe through, it reminds us that life is far too ridiculous to be taken too seriously. We are science and science-fiction fanatics, social activists, and hopeful futurists. We are space-hippies and dreamers, gamers and geeks, self-professed professional slackers, forward thinkers and generally good folk.
Galactic Hitchhikers is a community of like minded individuals, dedicated to sharing the ride on planet Earth. Offbeat observations on life, the universe, and everything; We share our experiences, laughter, and hope.
Dudeists/Froodists, and seekers of the Tao of the Towel, Taowelism©; We proudly welcome one and all, anyone who would enter as friends. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.
This community is about you, get involved, be excellent to each other, Share and Enjoy!
Apply to all situations. Our community isn’t just about the Hitchhiker’s Guide, it’s about finding what’s cool, and funny, and good about our shared ride on planet Earth. We celebrate our diversity rather than fret over our differences. Our community is the common thread that brings us all together.
It’s a tough universe out there. If any of us are going to survive we have to know where our towels are, meaning we have to keep our proverbial shit together.
Pretty self-explanatory on this one we should think. Unlike many other groups, this community does not allow the flaming of posts, or derogatory comments. Please contact a mod or admin if there is something you really can’t just let ride.
Galactic Hitchhikers is all inclusive, we welcome all who would return our kindness and friendship. Equality to all beings is paramount, and is our prime directive.
There is a fine art to takin' it easy, and you should try it. You are here to be a part of a community. Relax, have a laugh, and remember we are all friends here. Your experience with us should always be judged in the context that you are among fellow froods.
Being all inclusive means here at Galactic Hitchhikers we know that everyone will not always agree. And this is okay. Humor in particular is subjective. Being intelligent beings means we simply agree to disagree and go on with our day. It is just Facebook, after all.
Our oldest mantra, “If it isn’t for you, then it might be for someone else.” If it isn’t for you, then just keep scrolling. There is plenty else here to love without getting caught on the bits you don’t care for. Do not ruin the fun of others because you feel offended.
Always be excellent to each other. We accept all, infinite diversity in infinite combinations. Intolerance will not be tolerated. If you can’t be cool, then kindly see yourself to an airlock.
Try to keep it clean(ish) and family friendly(ish). Please note that this being said nobody is going to get too excited about small fries. Humor and entertainment are subjective, and are just like your opinion man. Try to give your fellow froods some leeway.
And party on, dudes. We have come together to share a laugh, our stories, and our hope for a brighter tomorrow. It all starts with you.
Here at Galactic Hitchhikers we respect everyone's right to their opinion, but please keep in mind that our team is 100% behind science, and the notion of helping to create a positive future for our world. In the coming days we will be posting a lot more about our climate crisis, because we feel it is the singular most important issue of our times, and that we can do something about it. We stand to kindle hope, and use that hope to move forward to a better tomorrow.
Please keep in mind as you reply to our posts about the climate crisis that we do not allow the flaming of posts. If you disagree with something we ask that you simply keep scrolling, if it isn’t for you it might be for someone else. As stated, everyone has the right to their opinion: But at the end of the day this community by it’s charter is a group for like minded individuals. We reserve the right to excuse anyone we deem to be against that charter from participation in this community.
Unless you are a climate scientist, we will give no time to those who deny the best knowledge of our planet’s top minds on the subject. Your compliance is appreciated, your defiance will be unceremoniously tossed out of the airlock. If this statement does not suit you, there are airlocks located on each deck of the ship which are free to use.
We don’t have time to field negativity or tolerate willful ignorance. This is not the rest of the internet, this is Galactic Hitchhikers.
