These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on The Aksum Imperium. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.
1. First and foremost, this is the metaverse. If you get mad, angry, or upset. Log off. Breath. Then come back.
2. Treat everyone with respect. Absolutely no harassment, witch hunting, sexism, racism, or hate speech will be tolerated.
3. Respect yourself and fellow users and the authority of the administrators and the Sovereign.
4. Using this site means you agree to abide by the laws or rules made for this micro-nation.
5. Only use out of character (OOC)conversations in designated out of character areas. There will be time when they may cross but if you can't make it appear to be in-character (ic) or roleplay (rp) then it should only be in the OOC area.
6. Stay on topic and always stay in character in all areas except the OOC. You must stay on topic in all posts.
7. No one under 14 is allowed on the site. No vulgarity is allowed. What you do in the privacy of your private chats and messages must be agreed to by all involved. Reports of harassment will result in immediate removal, banning and cooperation with legal authorities.
8. 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 and post in meetings without prior approval you will be subject to Aksum's rp laws.
9. 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.
10. 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.)
11. 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.
12. 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).
13. 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.
14. No linking of other sites are allowed without prior approval.
15. Lastly, this is the metaverse. If you get mad, angry, or upset. Log off. Breath. Then come back. #
