Greetings minions! ◉◇◉

THE SUMMER SEASON IS UPON US! When things get hot outside, it heats up our guts and turns us crazy. I'm pretty sure that's real science! Iwaku has over 1000 active accounts with at least 350 people that log in every day. There is no possible way for you to get along with all of those people, even if you are the nicest person on the planet. You're gonna hate someone, and that's okay!

Remember: YOU are in full control in how you respond to things!

Our Policies already do a nice job of giving you behavior expectations for our forums and official discord server, but I'm here today to give you some quick tips as well! <3

- We are an inclusive, diverse community full of lgbtqia+, marginalized peoples, disabled peoples, and others in a society where LANGUAGE is evolving SO FAST that it's impossible to get things right all the time. Sometimes a word is 100% no longer appropriate and it's plainly obvious. And sometimes people with good intentions end up missing the point with their activism and try to police things out of fear. Use these opportunities to do some research! Learn about history and context! We're all trying to do our best to maintain a safe space.

- Our vibe here is WHOLESOME RESPECT AND FRIENDLINESS. If you're one of those "I'll respect people only if they respect me", then walk out the door right now. ALL of our members deserve a certain level of respect as living human beings. Be kind. Take the time to see things from other people's perspective. This is not Ru Paul's Drag Race, you shouldn't be throwing shade and passive aggressive nonsense in every direction.

- In public spaces use "public behavior". That means in the main forums or the discord, you are in a public space and you don't really know who is going to walk in on a topic. You're not gonna be flashing photos of big tiddy goth girls or body horror gore in the middle of a MacDonalds, so use your discretion in our public areas. When someone asks "Hey, can you spoiler those kind of pics?" or "Can we change the subject?" or "Can you move move that topic to ___ channel?", it doesn't hurt us in the slightest to be kind and adhere to those requests.

- CONSENT IS KEY. This is especially important in our roleplay areas! Make your partner requests clear about what you like and don't like. Be sure group roleplays explain the sort of content that might be featured in them. It's impossible to protect everyone all the time from triggering content, as we're not psychic and we can't possibly know what might be triggering for someone -- BUT. It's easy to mark threads with appropriate tags and content labels as a heads up. It's easy to ask your partners "Hey, is this thing okay to do in this scene?" to be extra sure they're okay with things like extreme gore, horror, kink, or other intense subjects. GET THAT CONSENT, BABY.

- If someone is not breaking any rules and is not actively trying to harass you, but you still hate their guts - BLOCK THEM. You don't owe anyone your time and attention. If you don't like someone, and you don't wanna deal with them, there's nothing wrong with that! Yeet them into the sun and never think of them again.

- And of course, if someone IS breaking site policy, harassing you, creating a disturbance, being a shady lil bitch - you report them. Hell, even if you're not 100% sure if they're a problem, report them. Our wonderful staff are trained in handling everything from tiny problems to big scary things. We always look at the context of the situation and use our best judgement. No one gets in trouble unless there's actually trouble afoot.


At the end of the day, remember that we're all here to have fun and make friends. <3 SO HAPPY SUMMER ROLEPLAYING BETCHES.
