Roleplay Etiquette (Fan Domain Repost)
Use of out of character details.
Fandomain strongly suggests that you be careful to whom you give any
Ooc information that you wish others not to know. Remember it is your
private information and if others release it even our actions can not
take it back once it is out there.
Under no circumstances should you use another writer′s real life name
(or without permission other characters name), picture, address, phone
number etc in any public post. This includes status be it yours or
others, comments even if your comments are hidden on your profile or
in bulletins. If you use them in messages and others release them you
are still accountable for things you have said, therefore if that
information was not yours to release and you do so privately in a way
that can be deemed offensive the admin may act.
use of a first name or second name etc that happens to be the same as
another person is fine however if they request it we will monitor these
pages to ensure they are not used to insult anyone.
3. From this point on there will be a one strike and you′re outruled on any use of the above. FYI, if others do it to you and you respond in kind then you both will be treated the same. If you see it report it but don′t retaliate in kind.
(If you guys are not comfortable will this next one we could make it a specific period of time ban)
Those that are deleted for two strikes in this violation will not be
allowed back into Fandomain as to do so would put our other writers at
risk of the same abuse.
Note: We will only act on specific incidents that we see. We can not act on word of mouth, past incidents or generalisation.
There are many reasons why a person may not like seeing what a person
posts in status. This can be from something as innocent as posting too
many YouTube videos or images for your liking, to people posting stats
that you consider low level drama (such as "sigh", "done" etc) all the
way up to full on abusive or aggressive stats be they direct or
If you do not like what you see in status you can click the ′X′ next to
it to delete that status. However if it is a repetitive issue and you
do not like the types of comments or content posted by another user the
only way of addressing this is by deleting them.
You are welcome to discuss your issues with the admin however the only
issues that admin are likely to consider stepping in over with regards
to status posts are issues that breach the rules on out of character
details, or stats that insult or mock other users without their
permission. (Doing so behind the guise of being ′in character′ is only
acceptable if the person being discussed or attacked is in on it making
it a story line). Note, generic comments such as "pissed off" or "fed up
of that" will not be dealt with by admin. Only those that identify a
targeted individual or group by name or by description.
Please respect the rights of a person to choose to not have you on
their friends list. People should never be subjected to any negative
response for that, however if the person you are deleting is a person
you have a storyline with it is good manners to message them and inform
them of your choice, not to explain yourself, but simply so they do not
do additional work that is not going to be read.
the admin will only respond to what they see or is reported to them and
they are able to see. For individual situations were status rules are
breached we will advise only that you delete and block them, however if a
person continuously is abusive to people in their stats the admin will
discuss how to address this.
-the admin will not address any issue that takes place off Fandomain.
-the admin will be happy to help with general queries but please be patient.
the admin on there own pages is okay if the admins say, however bare in
mind that they are under no obligation to respond from those pages when
they are trying to enjoy there own RP.
no point is it acceptable to be rude, threatening or insulting to the
admin. By definition when talking to us administrators of a site you are
talking to us Ooc and therefore such language is subject to the rules
on Ooc conduct. The admin are giving up free time and for some there own
money to allow you to have this site. Please appreciate that.
-any issues regarding site errors, pages being deleted etc can all take longer. Please be patient.
Page copying/Rights to pages.
owns the rights to any mythological, historical or established
fictional character. You can however tag yours with an original name/tag
which others can′t use. Eg anybody can make Spider-Man, but if your
page is called Spider-Man -web master- we will support in nobody else
places from history, myth or fiction are open to be used, however an
original place can not be copied. If you do make a group based in a
place eg Roman Empire and one already exists your group′s initials
should avoid being too similar.
you copy your bio offline and others use them admin will not step in as
it is available for all.we will only step in if the bio is original and
that seem very similar or appear to be made to mock others will be
looked into and dealt with at the admin′s discretion. Pages designed to
insult others will not be tolerated.
admin do not promote or encourage blacklisting, however what groups and
individuals do with regards to this is their own affair. Blacklisting
may not be liked but it is not an issue the admin are here to address.
with many of the issues mentioned such as issues between writers etc
please consider, are they issues for people running a site or people
running a group. Remember MySpace would never have stepped in on these
issues, many of them are for individual kingdoms or groups to sort out,
not for the admin.
