Welcome to the itch.io TTRPG forums.

It's our job as members of this community to honor one another, show each other respect, and to uplift one another by keeping the gates open for everyone. In this space we can shape a culture of personal and professional value. Of care, the sharing of information, and of promoting a better standard for how we are treated and how we treat each other. In order to achieve this goal, the mod team has established the following guidelines, followed by our expectations for behavior. 


Guidelines

Listen to those who are more informed than us when it comes to their culture, background, gender identity, or social standing. Missteps happen; apologize, and move on. Don’t put the burden of explaining on others and try to do your own research. Respect the boundaries of others. If a conversation becomes uncomfortable for someone, be understanding. Don’t pry; ask if it’s okay to move forward in a conversation or if it needs to come to an end. If someone throws the X-Card or draws a line in the sand, it’s full stop. Respect people’s pronouns, and what name they prefer to be called.

Facilitate the lowering of gates by being an envoy of our community. The conversation is what’s important, not the pace. Listen first.  


Warning Level Offenses

Hate speech is not allowed here in any form. We don’t use, promote, or normalize language that intends harm based on the rights and respect of physical and mental ability as well as racial, cultural, national, gender, and sexual backgrounds.

Derailing threads by moving focus of a conversation in a non-natural and malicious manner. Keep self-promotion, detailed theory, and/or miscellaneous conversation in their appropriate spaces.

Piracy and theft. Stealing and/or reskinning exact works of others and claiming ownership is an offense. Distributing copies of work that are not your own creations or without the permission of the creator  

After two warnings, your account will be suspended for a week. Upon returning your next infraction warrants further suspension up to and including a ban. If an infraction is clearly intentional or alluded in bad faith, the result will be a suspension or ban.


Bannable Offenses 

 Posting illegal content of any kind. Doxxing, general and targeted harassment, and deliberate disregard of boundaries. Public debate of moderated deliberations within the forums, save in Feedback discussions. Warning level infractions that are malicious, targeted, or extreme violations (judged at Full Mod Team discretion).

Those who are known to engage in the above listed offenses outside of this forum are not welcome and will be subjected to immediate expulsion.

Any information brought forward to the moderation team is held in full confidence and anonymity.


We have a home to live in. Now let's treat it, and each other, with the respect we deserve. Let's get to it.
