Hey everyone. I was contacted because of an issue on an opinion blog, and I just wanted to take a few minutes and remind you all of the first rule in our rule book which has to do with a little something we like to call respect.

I. Respect: 

First and foremost, we would like everyone to be able to respect us, because we can promise you that we will be respecting you and your needs. While we understand that not everyone is going to get along with everyone, it’s also important to be respectful of other members on the site. This means that you abstain from sending anon hate — you never know who could have an IP tracker installed on their page, and often times if we see someone getting pointless anon hate, we’ll reach out to them to get to the bottom of things. If we find out that you’re the culprit, you’ll be permanently banned from the RPG. This is not to be taken lightly.

This not only pertains to sending someone anon hate — it pertains to sending outside sources hate about a particular character. 

As it’s been said time and time again, I truly understand that not everyone is going to get along with everyone. Let’s face it, in a group full of 100+ members, there’s bound to be some personalities that clash. Everyone has different viewpoints and opinions because of personal experience and preference. However, if you have a disagreement with someone, it should be directed to that person — not outside sources.

It’s crucial that we all work together in order to maintain this group and keep it running as smoothly as possible. We can’t do that if the factor of respect for one another is absent. I know that it’s hard sometimes, as I don’t always agree with what people say, but I either call them out in character or not at all. Personally, I try to abstain from either or these days, but I can’t tell you how many people probably want to give Matt a slap in the past. Hah.

I think everyone needs to be reminded every now and then that roleplay is an escape from real life and you never know who could be going through what. So before you send in hateful things about another person, just remember that they could have a bad family/home life, they could have just lost a relative, could be struggling for money — you just never know. Roleplay could be their only escape.

Remember: it takes more energy to be ugly than it does to be polite, or even indifferent.
