discord rules & channel purposes

rules

Be respectful of all members: no harassment, toxicity, name-calling, or hate speech. 

All discussions must be held in good faith and assume good intentions. 

      • In a community of this size we understand that we may have disagreements or conflicts. Sometimes people cannot resolve disagreements on their own. 
      • Contact an officer for help or alert them to a situation by filing a support ticket or tagging them to the conversation.

Handle disagreements with courtesy. 

    • Avoid trolling and playing “devil’s advocate” to wind up people.
    • Show fellow members respect when they remind you of channel topics or guidelines regardless of who they are. They are likely long-time members who know the lay of the land very well and are trying to help.
    • Here is an article on how to resolve conflict.

Moderators of this discord are officers, moderators, and sergeants. 

    • Show them respect if they ask you to move your topic to another channel; mark your content with a spoiler; or edit your messages to be within our guidelines of acceptable content.
    • Failure to do so may result in: a timeout, or a ban or removal from discord.

We have a zero tolerance policy for any kind of sexist, racist, homophobic, pornographic or any other offensive language or content in all media on Discord. 

    • This goes for discord posts, messages, emotes, stickers, GIFs, photos, videos, discord nametags, and profile pictures or profile messages. 
    • Inappropriate photos and videos will be removed without warning.
    • You may post sensitive content with a spoiler and a clear  content warning if the context calls for it.

Stay within the appropriate topic of all channels and threads. #General or #EU-General is our catch-all. 

    • Intentionally spamming threads or channels with irrelevant and inappropriate content or not cooperating with our leaders/fellow members will result in a time-out of at a minimum 24 hours. 
    • Spoiler content without objections when requested by anyone for potentially triggering topics or sensitive information/graphics. Here is how to spoiler content on Discord.

Do not post content that is illegal or breaks ToS of either Blizzard/Discord:
Blizzard Terms of Services
Discord Terms

topic moderation

Each channel has a range of moderation and how strictly we expect people to adhere to the topic/purpose of that channel:

Relaxed: Anything is fine. Off topic fine. GIFs fine.
Moderate: 75% of conversation is on topic. GIF responses are ok. No GIF chaining or battles (3+ GIFs in a row). If off topic reaches 5+ messages, move to appropriate channel.
Strict: 90% of messages is on topic. Occasional off-topic question or comments ok. Most off-topic comments or images will get removed. No GIF chaining. GIF reactions OK if relevant.
Absolute: 100% must be on topic. No GIFs, no side conversations or irrelevant messages. 

Threads within the channel are expected to be at least Moderate or Strict unless specified otherwise.
