Here at Ravens Wyrd, we pride ourselves on being fair. To be fair we welcome people from all paths and view points. We encourage intelligent discussions and even the occasional debate. Please remember to be respectful. Do not insult anyone, their lifestyle or their beliefs. Below are the rules for both the Forums and the Chat. Please abide by them. Any person who does not abide by the rules is subject to being kicked. Thank you for your understanding! An it harm none, do what ye will.
Language and Trolling
Vulgar language is not encouraged. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.
Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.
Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be kicked and/or banned. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue issues are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
Moderators, and Administrators Have the Final Word
If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators, channel ops and/or moderators, or to the Feedback section. Do not take it to the other sections of the forums or to public channel. The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to kick or ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.
Spam & Cross-Posting
If you have something to share, post it once. If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion. For IRC Chat please do not share anything that would be considered over the rating of PG-13 without getting permission from one of the channel OPs.
Remember that this is a community about learning. We would hope that everyone finds their experience here to be a pleasant one. So get out there and have some fun!
