We've had our first ban over at [community profile] nexus_sages. An account was created for the obvious purpose of mocking and harassing a player in the community. The journal name also included ableist language. This ban is not open to debate, and we will not be answering questions on the subject.

What we do hope to discuss is whether or not we should attempt to make detailed lists of what's not allowed, or if the rules as written are sufficient. There are definitely arguments to be made for and against both positions, so let's try and have a polite conversation about it okay?

Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to discuss a delicate and sometimes difficult concept: the difference between being a character being offensive IC, and the concept of a character being offensive OOC. Some characters are jerks. We get that. Sometimes that's why they're villains, sometimes that's what keeps them from being overly saccharine heroes, sometimes they've got a blind spot about their own faults, sometimes they're just having a bad day. And that's fine. But some character concepts are offensive, and that's not okay.

Characters that are created to mock a specific real-life person, or a category of people, are offensive and will not be tolerated. I truly believe we're all capable of having fun without hurting feelings.

And if this is all just too serious for you, please feel free to scroll down a bit and help us build the community playlist.
