Current User Agreement as of April 2nd, 2018:

Greetings!  The below is a custom-written user agreement that you should read before joining our community.  This agreement applies to all official areas of Draconity.org, including our Discord server.

To become a member of Draconity.org, you must demonstrate you’re a real person with an intent to participate in our community in a healthy way.  We accept all types of people, regardless of their identity or affiliation with dragons (if any).  However, we do not welcome spambots, data-miners, or automated account registrations.  We also do not welcome people who intend to do our community harm.  To demonstrate you’re a well-intentioned real-life person, you should completely fill out the registration fields on the website.  Or, if you’re a Discord user, simply chat for a while until a Staff member is convinced of your intentions.

This is NOT a roleplay community.  Roleplay is not permitted on the forums, nor the discord. The exception to this rule are simple emotes/actions, which are permitted in moderation.

You may only have one account per person.  Duplicate accounts will be considered to be abuse of the technology, and thus removed.  You are responsible for your account’s security, so be sure to use a complex and unique password to prevent account theft.  Abuse of the technology also includes, but is not limited to: spamming, flooding, phishing, data mining, malicious intent, or hacking attempts.

Do not post illegal material.  This includes, but is not limited to, certain types of pornography, all types of pornography where minors have access, counterfeit or counterfeiting material, and copyright material. With the legalities in mind, the owners of this community reserve the right to provide authorities any relevant information about you and your interactions in the event of a formal complaint or legal action.

Any member who proves themselves to be detrimental to the community health will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.  This may include an initial warning, or restriction of services.  The degree of which will vary by the severity of the problem(s).

We consider all participation in this community to be voluntary. You are responsible for which areas you choose to access, and the content you post. We welcome and encourage lively discussions and debates, and as such you may find some content/users offensive. If this happens, we encourage you to stop reading/participating in such channels/topics, and/or stop interacting with the person who posted the content, and report it to the Draconity.org staff - especially if you feel it has crossed into illegal behavior. If you choose to continue participating in such channels/topics, or conversing with the person involved, we will take that into consideration. The Draconity.org staff are not here to prevent hurt feelings, nor censor anyone. We are here to look after the health of the community, which includes freedom of speech. But if someone is being detrimental to the community, the reports you provide will help us to act swiftly.

While your participation is always voluntary, we recognize that the environment others create for you is not.  Therefore, we do not tolerate cyber-bullying and will act accordingly with the laws currently in place if any such activity occurs.  This includes, but is not limited to: threats of any kind, harassment (sexual or otherwise), and maliciously targeting specific members.  If you find anyone’s advancement or targetting of you unwelcome, be sure to clearly tell them to stop, disengage from the situation, and report any further contact / aggression.  Staff will handle such reports on a case-by-case basis.

This is not a dating site and, unless otherwise designated, minors may be present.  Keep this in mind when discussing topics, posting content, or beginning a private conversation.  Known age and observed maturity levels may be considered when investigating a situation.

Our members have been enjoying this community since 2003, and we hope you do too!  As always, we welcome feedback on any topic (including this user agreement).

A copy is maintained on the website user registration page, and the Discord #rules-roles-info channel.  Feel free to PM any Staff Member for questions/suggestions!  This post will be updated as needed, and a reply will be made as updates are made (so you can get a notification if you subscribe)
