Site Rules Edit
These are Star Wars Legacies community guidelines (not to be confused with the Terms and Conditions which deal more with legal stuff). The staff and administration are responsible for interpreting and enforcing these.
Basic Rules Edit
- Register only one account.
- Follow our Roleplay Guidelines.
- Respect the rights of other players
- Art for your characters should be original, commissioned, or something you have permission to use1).
- Content guidelines for language, and sexuality - neither are allowed. Please keep it clean.
- o metagamingN.
- Work-in-progress wiki articles
go in the WIP: namespace. Keep your hands off other people's WIPs unless you have their permission to edit them.
- Exception: It's always okay to fix typos or broken links on the wiki.
- Do not hotlink images (such as
imgur) from other sites on the wiki. All wiki images should be locally hosted. This does not apply to the forums.
- If you need to leave the RP, please notify everyone in the "Goodbye Forum"
Code of Conduct Edit
We want the community to be enjoyable to its members and to be a fun place where members feel welcome.
- We expect and require respectful behavior.
- Profanity is NOT allowed in roleplay posts.
- Personal attacks or insulting others (“flaming”) is not permitted.
- Deliberately causing drama (“trolling”) is not permitted.
- Racist, bigoted, or other hate speech is a violation of the Terms and Conditions.
- Harassment will not be tolerated.
- Deceptive member behavior such as false ages, sock puppeting, and impersonating other members is not permitted.
- Copyrighted content is not permitted
on the wiki unless you have rights to put it there. On the forums copyrighted content such as news articles should be presented as part of a discussion about it. Do not post full articles (use excerpts only, preferably 1/6th or less of the article) and always provide credit and link to the source. Promoting piracy and warez is forbidden. See Terms and Conditions for info on copyright.
- Adult content is not permitted
- Spam advertising is prohibited, and will be reported to blacklisting services
- Do not quote or repost content that violates the rules.
- Do not get into “edit wars” with admins or mods on the forums or wiki, or vandalize the wiki.
- Do not share private conversations without the permission of those involved.
- Note: It's okay to share private conversations with site staff, or screenshots of them, if it's part of a report.
Violations of the above rules will typically result in a forum warning. Your content may be edited to remove content that violates the community guidelines. Multiple warnings, or severe violations, at discretion of the admins or staff, will result in a ban.
Enforcement Guidelines Edit
- Moderators should edit posts to remove the problem content, replacing it with a notice like: “This post has been edited to remove content that violated the Star Wars Legacies code of conduct. ~~Moderator Hertak Dun.”
- When a user commits a violation,
they should receive a notice that explains why they were in the wrong and what action we took. This can be automated or via conversation.
- Discussions of specific rule
violations should occur in private conversations, not on the forums. Attempts to “rules lawyer” moderator actions should be locked.
Mod Guidelines For Editing Posts Edit
- Posts with rule violations will be
generally edited to remove the violating content and leave the rest. If the whole post is an issue, the whole post will be removed.
- Posts with errors in spelling,
grammar, or BBCoding are sometimes edited to fix those errors when spotted. If a moderator edits a post, there is usually an automated notice at the bottom right that will say that a moderator edited it. Sometimes an admin may “silently” edit which does not show a notice.
- Character actions and dialogue should not changed without prior discussion except for the error correction noted above.
- Some forums, like the announcements
and the news forum, are exceptions that are moderated to review or improve content before it is visible to the public, because they are the “voice of the site.”
