We're here to have fun, not bicker. If someone says something you don't like, be polite and non-abrasive. Politely decline to discuss topics that spark contention, and generally follow Wheaton's Law. Members who routinely cause conflict will be asked to withdraw.
Entering members cannot have rank that exceeds Captain. Civilian postings cannot outrank that of Captain without special dispensation. Our Fleet Leader holds the rank of 'Vice Admiral', in adherence to our vision of RP.
We're roleplayers. Respect other roleplayers, regardless of quality or abrasiveness. Don't grief them or interrupt their play. This includes sharding, dancing, placing turrets, mines, using tribble cannons, etc. Friendly one-off griefing of friends during non-critical events is acceptable, as long as it doesn't interrupt the roleplay.
38th Fleet 'Argo' is a PG-13 fleet, so please consider your language and choice of topics when roleplaying in public areas and discussing topics in fleet channels. References to violence, sexual assault, and rape will not be tolerated. Occasional swearing is fine, just try not to make a habit of it, and keep unwholesome idioms off fleet channels. If a topic gets out of hand and any member asks it to change, we will respect their request. These rules apply to ALL public environs in which Argo may be found, so both our OOC channels and all publicly accessible IC settings.
We are not limiting what players can do in private RP, only in public RP and public channels. What consenting players do in private RP channels is between those players and not the business of the fleet or anyone else. If you think your content might be a problem, then take your RP somewhere private where you're certain your invited audience won't be offended by it.
Character & Story Policy
38th Fleet 'Argo' is a MEMBER-DRIVEN role-play group. While the admin staff will try to regularly come up with material and events for players to participate in, members are ultimately responsible for finding and generating their own RP. With that said, in order to keep cohesion among all the member story threads, there are some set boundaries in place regarding plausible character backstories and story arcs that require admin approval to bypass.
