Community Rules

Tribunal Rules

If the warnings from moderators are not respected and members proceed to act against the rules, and Three Strikes have been given, then there will be a tribunal system in place for moderators to bring forth evidence of the offenses, and the moderators will privately vote on the matter: Majority vote 50%+ will result in banning an account. Any moderator can initiate a Tribunal after Three Strikes.

Offenses will be recorded (by date, including link to the offender’s profile, and description of offense NOTE). Posts may be deleted by moderators.

Strikes are the major signs of abuse in the community. Record keeping will also be similar as offenses, but kept in a subsequent sheet.

NOTE: Descriptions can be a link to the offense (if not deleted), a copy of the offense (image), or citing the statute that the offense was (example: Statute Offense 1.a.i). If a serious offense was committed moderators MUST have a digital copy of the offense. The owner of the community will keep track of the records!
