We use Wheaton’s Law as our guiding principal. For those unfamiliar, it can be summed up like so:
“Don’t Be a Dick.”
Unfortunately, in this day and age, just that principal isn’t good enough. So, here are a few itemized rules:
- Under no circumstances will personal attacks be tolerated. I don’t care what your personal beliefs are; you check them at the door. These forums area place where every member can feel safe. If you want to start a debate about something, that’s fine. Arguments happen, and just because someone challenges your beliefs, it doesn’t mean they are attacking you. Please, keep this in mind before reporting a post.
- Intentionally inflammatory posts will be locked. Remember the point of these forums is about a video game studio. There’s no reason to make posts about “Evolution vs Creation”, or “Is Abortion Murder?”. If you absolutely must post a controversial topic, you must keep it in General Discussion. You should also use the
controversialtag. If the discussion gets out of hand, we will take immediate action, and lock the topic, no questions asked.
- If you are found to be personally harassing someone, you will be immediately banned. We have a zero tolerance for this type of behavior. Just don’t do it.
That being said, I hope none of these rules ever need to be used.
