Rules for Kametsu's official Discord server

Recommended Posts

Now that we've had a Discord server for a while, I got to thinking that it's probably time to lay out some official, specific rules for it. This is largely due to a recent incident that was reported to me by Discord's Trust & Safety team, but also slightly because we don't have a solid ruleset for it. These rules will now be shown to you when you join the server via the invite link, as well!

 

Without further ado, here they are:

  1. Do not ask to be assigned a role. The exception to this is as follows: If you are marked as belonging to certain usergroups here (Donators, Uploaders, to name a few), please be certain to let me know via PM - once connected to Discord you'll need to provide me your Discord handle and ID so I can grant you the appropriate role.
  2. Do not ask if you can mod the server. I only select specific staff members I can personally entrust with the upkeep of the server, and only if/when there is a need for more.
  3. ALWAYS comply with the Discord Community Guidelines, which are located here: https://discordapp.com/guidelines
  4. Don't use this server as a means to insult others, nor to troll others with the intention of starting a flame war. Violators will be removed permanently on the first offense.
  5. Have respect for eachother's opinions. EVERYONE is entitled to their own, of course, but do not attempt to impose your own upon others.
  6. NSFW content goes into the NSFW channel. What's considered NSFW? Anything with any degree of nudity, sexual references, references to pornography, as well as excessive swearing, to name some things. You MUST be 18 years or older to enter the NSFW channel.
  7. IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE ABOVE: Under NO circumstances are you to post ANY remotely pornographic depiction involving minors - this includes lolicon and shotacon. DO NOT POST IT. This will likely result in removal of the post, being removed from the server, and/or possibly being reported to Discord Trust & Safety.
  8. Racism is not welcome here. Everyone on this server is an equal and they can do without racist bigots.
  9. No spamming. This includes (but is not limited to) advertising of other servers other than those authorized by staff.
  10. No flooding. That means don't go pasting huge amounts of text. While Discord can handle such things much better than IRC can, the fact remains that nobody likes to have to read an entire wall of text in the middle of a conversation. Use an online paste tool.
  11. You have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to drop IkarosBD or anyone in one of the admin or mod roles a DM. They'll be happy to lend an ear should you need it.

 

These rules are subject to change at any time, with or without prior notice. By joining one of our channels, you are hereby acknowledging to fully abide by these rules. Failing to read and understand these rules does not excuse you if you break them.

 

 

If you have anything else you'd like me to add to these rules, or any modifications you think should be made, please post in here and let me know. I did want to originally include this with the original Discord post but that one was already lengthy as it was. I opted instead to make a new thread, and simply link to it from the official Discord thread, which allows for more proper discussion.

As a suggestion:

Having a separate channel for just the rules is quite useful. 1) You can create an invite to this channel (and link it everywhere) so that when someone joins, they see (reads) them rules first, before joining the available channels. 2) One can also pin that message/channel/post to all of the sub channels - for reference.

Suggestion implemented, I like that idea. Thanks @Moodkiller
