A reminder on courtesy

  • @DivisionByZero:



    Lately we've had a batch of complaints about players being rude OOC to others. I don't care if someone metagamed to hell and back in order to grief you, loot you and steal your significant other. If you insult a player you will be banned. If other player insults you and you respond with more insults, you will both be banned. If you can't remain civil OOC, you don't belong in CoA.


    If you have a complaint that cannot be resolved with the players in question, you bring it to the DMs and no one else. You do not bring it up in IRC, forums, send abusive tells to the player you have a disagreement with, or anything of the sort. Once again, if you are found to have been abusive, no matter how grievous your disagreement with the player, you will be banned.


    Let me try once again.

    It doesn't matter if another player is sending you pictures of him eating babies alive, doing your sister or reading Cosmopolitan. You don't deal with it yourself, you talk to a DM so that he or she deals with it. Insulting or harassing other players OOC for ANY reason is a bannable offense, and we will ban you before we deal with the original alleged offender.

    I find appalling that some players consider reporting an issue to a DM to be immature (as if reporting a crime to the police was the same as tattletelling in recess) but have no qualms to engage in insults over tells.

    Grow up, for god's sake.


    And to make this crystal clear: It does not matter how or where you harass another player.

    If you forget these rules then you can anticipate a ban in your future, either in the game or on IRC.

  • Bumping this because I've been noticing several of these points being overlooked.
