History: Code of Conduct

Preview of version: 2

Since this is meant to be a personal, inviting community full of mature members, the rules on posting Code of Conduct are fairly simple: use your judgment, and be polite. Do not insult, attack, belittle, tease, or otherwise act inappropriately toward any other member. Under no circumstances will bigotry, libeling, spamming or stealing [ideas, art, writing, anything] be accepted here on Newgulf.

If someone has made you uncomfortable in any way, then the best way to deal with this is to speak to them directly and politely, in private. One-on-one communication solves far more problems than harbored resentment, talking about them behind their back, or a stern talking to. However, if you are having a problem with someone that can't be resolved one-on-one, or if your direct communication has left you in a stalemate or lead to more problems, then please feel free to PM any moderator and they will help you work things out.

If someone has broken any of the RP rules or has done something in character that you think is inappropriate or non cannon, you can either shoot them a polite comment in private to talk about it or inform a moderator of the issue and they will help work out a solution.

Please keep in mind that we are not a support forum, and are not equipped to help you deal with your personal or psychological problems. Being that it's more likely that members, even trying to be helpful, will do harm than good with these sorts of problems, we request that you do not post pity posts here on the forum — seek out professional help, instead, or speak one-on-one with close friends who fully understand your situation.
