Rules & Guidelines

Rules for Conduct:



 
     
  • As members, we must adhere to World Anvil's Etiquette practices.
  •  
  • Be respectful. Act with dignity, kindness, and integrity.
  •  
  • Teenagers (13+) who demonstrate a modicum of maturity, take writing seriously, and provide parental approval are welcome.
  •  
  • Racism and bigotry are not welcome here.
  •  
  • Cussing is allowed here. Using it against another is not. Police your own potty-mouthes.
  •  
  • As this is a group intended for writing, all subjects are entertained for discussion. Even sensitive topics. Treat them with respect, debate the ideas, but note that attacking people is unacceptable.
  •  
  • If you act like a troll, expect to be treated like a troll. Any predatory behavior will be acted upon swiftly and reported to appropriate authorities.
  •  
  • This isn't a therapy support group. Venting frustrations is one thing, but most (if not all) of us aren't equipped to fix you.
  •  
  • The Enclave isn't a park-n-ride. Loitering, lurking (especially in offline mode), and inactivity, or any combination of, in excess of thirty days may result in removal from the Enclave at the discretion of its leadership.
  •  
  • Posting is at your own discretion and risk. While the Enclave doesn't tolerate plagiarism, or theft of any kind, it cannot guarantee protection. Therefore, it's advisable to avoid posting anything near and dear to you without proper copyright protection.
  •  
  • Remember that ideas are a dime a dozen. While they may be precious to you, it's wise to expect some overlap. Especially when dealing with a community of creative individuals.
  •  
  • Everything shared or posted within the Enclave is copyright by its original owner. Plagiarism, or the taking of any concept shared, be it a character, synopsis, story, or the direct copying of someone else's work is unacceptable and — upon sufficient evidence — will result in an immediate removal.
  •  
  • In seeking feedback from anyone in the Enclave, receive it with grace and humility.
  •  
  • In giving feedback to anyone in the Enclave, do so in the spirit of compassion. "Truth, without compassion, is brutality," and cruelty, in any form, is unacceptable.


Guidelines for Handling Issues



  • We expect members (including teenagers) to conduct themselves with maturity. If a problem arises between you and another member, please try your best to communicate with each other and work it out. Often times, a person cannot fix a problem if they don't know it to be one.
  •  
  • If two people cannot find a happy medium in solving a problem, an advocate can be requested for a group discussion (via Discord). However, as this option could result in review and removal of both parties from the Story Enclave, and especially the Workshop, we encourage you to think things through, including your own behavior. We're not here to pick sides and help you win a fight.
  •  
  • Any serious accusations (i.e. racism, harassment, etc.) one makes against another member of the community must be accompanied by screen shots or some other format that is not susceptible to easy manipulation.
