Apparently this is necessary

Post  The Storyteller on Sun 06 Mar 2016, 10:46 pm

Don't ask why just be grateful it was nipped in the bud before it became the sort of thing everyone in the forum had to deal with. Just to clear up any confusion though and to make it very clear in the future. I'm a Homosexual, that doesn't mean the game's theme is going to be homosexual or anything in nature. (Although I may have gay characters, but that's my right as much as it is yours to have heterosexual, bisexual, pansexual, or even asexual characters.) It does mean however that blatant bigotry of any sort won't be tolerated here. Especially the 'Fa--ot-word' you know which one or any variation of that word. If your request for the game is going to include derogatory terms referring to myself obviously you are just a troll. If you manage to get into the game and than start throwing around derogatory terms than you'll likely be kicked from the game and insta-banned from the site. To some extent I really want this to be a welcoming and positive space, really really badly. I'm trying not to make the first response to anything a kick and insta-ban, but honestly some people ask for it.

Just don't be a bigot and we'll get along fine.

Hmmm kind of don't want to just leave this here, why have the negative energy? Might delete it and try to make a rule or something out of it ... basically 'no unnecessary bigotry ... except in-character for plot relevant reasons and please never painted in a positive light... perhaps sometimes in a weird philosophical light that can make you question the nature of humanity and good and evil, but let's not try to insinuate that bigotry is itself a positive thing. Know what I mean? Something like that as a rule... and than get rid of this and just not worry about it. I imagine there will always be times when somebodies gotta well ... I don't know anyway that's my thought and here's a note to remind myself.

I think you should still keep it, for new people that start coming in. I know it is negative energy, but it would help to leave it here instead of having to go through it all over again for some bigot.

Can Villains be bigots though? They are supposed to be evil after all.

As I said and I'll make sure to do my best to clarify in the written rule, bigotry is allowable for plot relevant reasons for characters where bigotry makes sense. This for me can include villains, temporary bigotry for anti-heroes, ignorant characters etc. Basically if it's in-character and reasonable, not something that's for example: Obviously exasperated with the intent of causing Offense Out Of Character than we'll be okay. To some extent cases of Not obviously we will deal with as they come. Most of the time though if it's serving the sake of plot, story, and generating role-play related drama (for the sake of improving the intrigue level of the game, let's still try not to overdo it.) it will be alright.

Let's just say if it's the sort of thing where everyone can basically say they don't feel offended than they don't feel offended. (I also realize that sometimes we can't please everyone, but like I said we'll do the best we can so everyone can go forward not feeling attacked in anyway while still allowing people to create freely.) We'll find a balance somehow.
