Genesys RPG Community rules
« on: January 19, 2021, 11:13:43 am »
Note: These rules are enforced across all of the Genesys RPG Community platforms we manage - Facebook, Discord, reddit, MeWe, etc. - breaking the rules on one is the same as breaking them on all the others and will result in similar consequences. In short, if you get banned in one place, you’re banned everywhere.

  • Do not organize, participate in, or encourage harassment of others. Disagreements happen and are normal, but continuous, repetitive, or severe negative comments may cross the line into harassment and are not okay.
  • Do not engage in or promote hate speech. It’s unacceptable to attack a person or a community based on attributes such as their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, or disabilities. Yes, this includes overt and ongoing sexism and racism. No, it’s not up for debate.
  • Do not make threats of violence or threaten to harm others. This includes indirect threats, as well as sharing or threatening to share someone’s private personal information (also known as doxxing).
  • Do not evade user blocks or server bans. Do not send unwanted, repeated friend requests or messages, especially after they’ve made it clear they don’t want to talk to you anymore. Do not try to hide your identity in an attempt to contact someone who has blocked you, or otherwise circumvent the tools we have which enable users to protect themselves. Do not make multiple accounts and keep returning to the community. If you have been banned, it means your actions and attitudes are not welcome in our community.
    Please use English. We celebrate and respect other cultures and languages, but in order to ensure users don’t feel left out of the conversation we ask that users keep their messages to English and attempt to use proper grammar and spelling. This also allows the mods to ensure no one is breaking the rules. There are servers for specific languages, or you can start your own!
  • Act politely and respectfully towards other users, even if you disagree with them.
    • No offensive messages or nicknames - Anything that a reasonable person might find offensive.
    • No spam - This includes but is not limited too, loud/obnoxious noises in voice, @mention spam, character spam, image spam, and message spam.
    • No Gorey, Sexual, or scary content - Screamer links, porn, nudity, death.
    • No inappropriate nicknames (sexual, racist or violent)
    • No content that glorifies drug use or makes light of drug addiction.
    • No piracy. We understand that it’s frustrating if your physical copy isn’t a pdf or isn’t available. We have a respectful relationship with FFG and any piracy discussions are not allowed.
    • Moderators have the final say. The moderators are here for a reason and will enforce the rules.

Do not argue with the moderators. If you disagree with the rules, go somewhere else or start your own community - they are designed to foster an open, welcoming community. There is also historical context behind decisions and rulings that you may not be familiar with.
If you feel someone is breaking the rules please message a mod privately. We have mods from most time zones so someone should respond shortly, in the meantime, ignore the user.

Moderator Guidelines:
If someone breaks the above rules, depending on the rule broken moderators will:
  • Issue a warning
  • Mute the user for 24 hours
  • Ban the user for 24 hours
  • Ban the user permanently
  • Depending on the severity of the rule(s) broken, moderators may opt to permanently ban users without any warning.
