We've had a lot of little fights break out in the past month, so the Administration just wants to give all members a gentle reminder! Iwaku being on a private server means that we do not have to adhere to a strict TOS or "Terms of Service" about what sort of content you are allowed to talk about. HOWEVER, Iwaku does have community rules to help keep our members safe and happy. The very simple rules listed in our Guide are based on honor and trust in our members to use their common sense! The most important thing to remember: Have respect for ALL members of Iwaku and treat others the same way you would like to be treated. If Iwaku is to remain a comfortable and enjoyable place with the freedom to have "whatever" conversations, please make sure to be respectful when chatting with other members. We all have differing opinions, we all have a right to be here. On the occasions where a fight breaks out, try one of the following! - Take it to private. (The more people involved, the less likely to solve the problem.) - Drop it and change the subject. (Sometimes there's no getting around it.) - Use the IGNORE buttons. (There is an ignore feature in the Cbox AND on the forums!) - Report the issue to the nearest Staff Member. (Anyone with a Red, Blue, or Purple name.) With these things in mind, Iwaku can be a nice drama free environment! :D You may now return to your regularly scheduled roleplaying!
