Violating the following rules will result in a ban. Terms and extent of these rules is up to the staff. We reserve the right to change these rules at any time.
Ban length is at the discretion of the staff members, but the typical process is:
First offence = 1 week ban
Second offence = 3 month ban
Third offence = permanent ban
You will be told before being banned how long your ban will be for. It is your responsibility to appeal your ban at the end of the ban length in order to get unbanned. You will not be automatically unbanned, and you must appeal it in the forms section.
1. No Harassment or Bullying of Any Kind
We strive to foster an inclusive and safe community. Anything that goes against that is not allowed. This includes interactions that happen in character; ie no misogyny, racism, etc even if it "furthers your character development". It's not ok and it's not allowed. The only exception would be if it is in a private chat, and if all parties are in agreement to this behavior and have explicitly stated as such. If anyone is not ok with this, it is not allowed.
