+news Harassment

Harassment can be difficult to define, but on String Theory MUX it boils down to this: don’t do things to other people that you wouldn’t want them doing to you. This includes (but is not limited to) incessantly paging other players after they have asked you to stop, soliciting other players for TS when the other player has made it clear they are not interested (we’d really prefer you didn’t TS on the game at all, but that’s another policy entirely), and using abusive language toward other players in an OOC manner.

Repeated instances of harassment may be considered a bannable offense if staff-issued warnings are not heeded.

10/15/09: As a general rule, we expect players of String Theory to be courteous in OOC channels, and there is some behavior that, while does not constitute as harassment (unless used repeatedly to provoke), we'd prefer players to steer clear from. One such behavior is @emiting or spoofing the actions and dialogue of others unless it is abundantly clear that it's acceptable to those involved. We would like to see this avoided if possible so as to avoid conflict and confusion. Thank you for understanding.
