Guide for Diplomats
Welcome to the Nexus Station, the primary entry point into the Aksum Imperium. A virtual world micronation existing solely in the metaverse. We practice full immersion roleplay, meaning any place that is used by Aksum is in full immersion role play. (Of course we understand human nature may cause slip ups at times). To help get you oriented with us and smooth your interaction we provide this guide. Don't worry, you don't have to memorize it.
To ensure the intent is met we have to set general rules.
1. First and foremost, this is the metaverse. If you get mad, angry, or upset. Log off. Breath. Then come back.
2. Respect yourself and fellow users and the authority of the administrators and the Sovereign.
3. Using this site means you agree to abide by the laws or rules made for this micro-nation.
4. Only use out of character conversations in designated out of character areas. There will be time when they may cross but if you can not make it appear to be in-character or rp then it should only be in the OOC area.
5. Stay on topic and always stay in character in all areas except the OOC. You must stay on topic in all posts.
6. No one under 13 is allowed on the site. No sex play, vulgarity, or offensive words are allowed. What you do in the privacy of your private chats and messages must be agreed to by both. Reports of harassment will result in immediate removal, banning and cooperation with legal authorities.
7. Even if you have access or can see a particular area, do not post there unless you are a part of the rp or activities. For instance, if you are not in the legislature but post in legislature meetings without prior approval you will be subject to Aksum's rp laws. However repeatedly doing so will result in banning.
8. Your forum name should be linked to a virtual world avatar. Gamertags can not be used as your name unless it has a first name and surname.
9. Follow the laws, terms of service (tos) and rules of the areas maintained by Aksum (virtual world grids, forums, chats, game consoles, pc games, etc.)
10. If you absolutely do not agree with what goes on and can not operate within our guidelines, please leave, there will be no hard feelings.
11. Do not bring real life issues into the in character areas. This can result in dismissal and banning (either through the rp courts or by administrative actions if it is excessive).
12. Remember, all the title, positions, duties, related to the Aksum Imperium are based on the full immersion RP. Unless someone has properly presented themselves as a real life lawyer or other professional, no real life professional advice should be given.
13. No linking of other sites are allowed without prior approval.
14. Lastly, this is the metaverse. If you get mad, angry, or upset. Log off. Breath. Then come back.
