STAR WARS ODYSSEY RP COMMUNITY CODE OF CONDUCT
This community intends to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for its members. By participating on this forum, users are affirming their willingness to comply with our site rules, as stated below:
Be respectful of others at all times. The purpose of this website is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and offer a safe and fun role-playing environment for all. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting.
No ranting, please. A rant is a post which is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and helpful in the development of a constructive discussion, but rants are disruptive and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise, clear manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents.
Personal attacks are unacceptable. Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to personally berate or insult another. Text of this nature is not beneficial to the community spirit and will not be tolerated.
No posting of personal information. Please respect the privacy of fellow members and do not give out information such as phone numbers and addresses. Private communication between Staff and Community Members is not to be made public on these forums or by any other venue - unless both sides have given their express permission to do so.
Avoid discussions about highly controversial subjects (such as religion or politics), except in the appropriately designated forum (Han Shot First) and in Private Messages or Whispers (SWO RPG Chat).
Immediate banning from the forum can result from posting any of the following:
Discriminatory content which is considered to be sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; pornography; excessive obscene or vulgar language; content which discusses or illustrates illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned elements.
Spamming and bumping are not permitted. Spam is considered to be repetitive posting of the same text or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users. Bumping posts in order to keep them near the top of the list is also prohibited. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome. Redundant threads will be deleted.
As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Keep discussions about one topic to one thread only.
Impersonating another forum user, moderator or administrator is strictly prohibited. If you should get caught doing this - you will be banned - no exceptions.
Posting advertisements. Posts advertising other Star Wars or sci-fi related sites is permitted, as long as your advertisement adheres strictly to the rules outlined in this Code of Conduct. You may post for your chosen site ONCE - any topic bumping will result in the thread being immediately closed, deleted and your account put on probation with an automatic warning. If you would like to see a site added to our current resources list (or our affiliates panel), please notify one of the staff via PM and we will take your request under consideration. Avoid using profanity.
Post constructively. Providing feedback can be very useful, provided that it is presented in a civil, factual manner. Tell us what you don't like and why and how you feel it could be improved. Posts that are insulting and rude may be deleted, no matter how valid the ideas behind them may be. Disputes which cannot be resolved between forum users and moderators may be arbitrated by the forum administrators.To discuss problems or concerns, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you for taking the time familiarizing yourself with our board rules, as stated above.
We hope you enjoy the Star Wars Odyssey RP community,
Sincerely - SWO Staff
