GENERAL RULES Post Respectfully Keep in mind that there are people on the other side. Just because they may disagree with you does not mean they should be condescended to, insulted or otherwise. Discussion should stay as civil as possible, and your opinions stated in an intelligent manner.
Don't flame, bait, or troll. Attacking someone is unacceptable.
Do not ever frame others.
Any problems you have can be solved with calm and polite conversation. The staff (and most of the users!) aren't out to get you, or insult you at every opportunity. Just talk to us like we're people!
While we do not have a rule against swearing (just do not swear excessively), do not launch these insults at other members in this form. Swearing in light conversation, and swearing AT someone are two very different things. In general, a well-spoken person has no need of such words.
Do not use slurs in public threads. If you do, you risk offending others - even those you weren't directly addressing. The public use of slurs on The Codex (site or server!) is not acceptable in any circumstances.
The purpose of this rule/policy change is to raise the level of mature, mutually respectful conversation on The Codex by strongly discouraging the use of well-known racial/sexual slurs. This is not intended to remove all occurrences of anyone taking offense to anything nor to affect the long-standing policy of allowing cursing in any way.
If a slur is reported, it will be reviewed by the staff for context and impact using a "reasonable person" standard (would a reasonable person react or be expected to react to the statement in this way?)
Edits of offending posts will either be requested or done by staff. Reverting those edits will draw further penalties.
