Legal

These forums are here to provide our community with a public and open area for discourse. This is a place where you can discuss ideas, give suggestions, and otherwise talk about other aspects of Smartly Dressed Games' games with other players.

In addition to our Terms of Service, we provide the following guidelines for community conduct. This is a living document, and we review incidents on a case-by-case basis. These guidelines are not inherently exhaustive and may not address all forms of prohibited conduct.

Hateful Conduct

Hateful conduct is any content that promotes or facilitates discrimination, objectification, harassment, or violence against another person based on various characteristics. Hateful conduct is prohibited, and any reported hateful conduct will be reviewed to determine the intent and context of the incident.

  • This includes generalizations or hate speech based on: sex, gender, orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, age, or religion.

The use of hate group symbols as avatars is considered a form of hateful conduct.

Harassment

Harassment is any content that attempts to intimidate, abuse, or bully others, and is prohibited. This includes threats of violence, sexual harassment, spreading disinformation, revealing personal information with malicious intent, submitting false reports or report brigading, and inciting others to harass.

Releasing personal information about other users in an attempt to encourage harassment against them through witch hunts or vigilantism is prohibited.

Disruptive Conduct

Any conduct which interrupts the general flow of the forum, or any other SDG medium, is prohibited.

Spamming is prohibited. This includes excessive multiple postings, be it the same phrase or pure gibberish, and a highly unreasonable amount of consecutive posts.

Creating threads for the sole purpose of causing unrest on the forums, or posting content to cause disturbances in forum threads, is prohibited. Making posts with the intent to derail a topic, or to further derail a topic, is prohibited. Trolling or starting flame wars, such as by intentionally upsetting people through inflammatory or off-topic content, does not contribute to the conversation.

Manipulating the report system is disruptive and is prohibited.

Malicious Programs

Posting links to cheats, hacks, or malicious programs is prohibited. Information regarding cheats or hacks should not be posted to the SDG Forum.

  • Linking to malicious programs may result in an indefinite suspension.

Impersonation

Impersonation of individuals or groups, through the posting of content to misrepresent yourself or the manipulation of public account information, is prohibited.

  • Impersonation of SDG representatives may result in an indefinite suspension.

Account Management

Users are not allowed to trade, transfer, or sell their forum accounts. Advertising that you are looking for an account, or linking to an online marketplace for exchanging accounts, is also prohibited.

If a user wishes to have their account renamed, merged, deleted, or anonymized, these options are available upon contacting an appropriate staff member. A brand new user account may change their username within the first few days of their creation, without the assistance of a staff member.

Discretion

SDG, and forum staff, reserve the right to exercise discretion on severe violations and for other issues in which moderator action would be in the best interests of the community. Discretion also includes instances in which normal enforcement of rules may lead to a disproportionate outcome with respect to the current or prior incidents.
