As a member of Phantom Rebels, and (hopefully) as a decent human being, we should all strive to maintain a certain level of civility both within Phantom Rebels and to other players on-line.
To this effect, all member should do what they can to abide by the following guidelines while representing Phantom Rebels.
Please try to maintain a minimum level of profanity - No one minds the occasional swear here and there. But make it a point to meter your output in both game chats and Discord. This includes slurs.
Remember Phantom Rebels was formed as a family friendly gaming clan, as such we would like to keep it friendly and open to everyone who wishes to join us.
Do Not Assume
Just because you in particular have no issue with a word it's OK for you to use it. And please don't try to justify it's use.
Our team has staffed quite a few game servers and we've heard about every justification for rude or racist behavior. Basically, the harder you have to work to justify the statement, the more wrong you probably are. That and it's just easier to say "my bad" and to not do it again.
Phantom Rebels admins or staff are not afraid to step in, so be warned, you will likely not enjoy how they handle it.
Avoid Antagonistic Behavior
I doubt many people signed up to Phantom Rebels to be harassed about their perceived level of skill or even their personal attributes or beliefs.
With people you do not know - Sarcasm is notoriously difficult to detect in written communication unless you know the person.
Even in Discord, people forget that upwards of 80% of communication is handled via facial expressions and body language.
These do not exist in either game chat or Discord. If a comment you made is taken out of context, you'd be better off apologizing and letting it drop than trying to explain why it was funny or needed to be taken within context.
Note: Game chat and Discord chat are not avenues for personal disagreements. We recommend you handle it in a private chat because if a spat is held in public, a Phantom Rebels admin or staff will handle it and you won't likely enjoy how he/she does so.
Please keep non-Phantom Rebels related chat to a minimum. If you find yourself "talking over" someone asking a game or Phantom Rebels related question, you'd do well to step back and let that conversation finish up before resuming your unrelated conversation.
Basically, don't act like a jerk-ass and keep the spam to a minimum and you'll be fine.
"The Bar" - Anything goes in here with respect to the general code of conduct. However, Phantom Rebels or in-game related discussion has priority.
If you find the focus of the Bar has switched to something else, move yourself and your conversation partner to another room or request, nicely, for the game or Phantom Rebels related chat to be taken to another room. But do not try to talk over member discussing game related issues to discuss how your night at the bar went.
Any other room will be used for whatever purpose the original joiners needed it for. Do not enter room and try to derail the discussion.
Really, that's about it. If you have an issue, you know who the admins and staff are.
Talk to them in private if you have issue and we will do everything to work it out. Report abusive behavior immediately.
