Code of Conduct
« on: September 16, 2018, 06:00:23 pm »
The Worlds of Katherine Kurtz Code of Conduct

We have created this Code of Conduct to expand upon the philosophy of our community's simple 5 word rule:
Be Excellent to Each Other

These rules apply everywhere within this online community including, but not limited to, the message board at, the #Deryni_Destinations chatroom on the OtherWorlders IRC Network. the Discord text and audio channels, and the email service provided by

This Code of Conduct also applies to any future services provided to the members of this community.

To Be Excellent to Each Other means not to engage in personal attacks against other community members. It's OK to disagree, of course, but don't cross the line. If you question if something is going to cross the line, simply don't do it because it probably does cross that line.

To Be Excellent to Each Other means not to engage in real-world political discussions within the community unless explicitly invited to do so by another member and then only with that member. This topic can be volatile at times, not only in the United States but everywhere around the world. There is a time and place for these discussions but it's generally not in this community.

To Be Excellent to Each Other means not to harass other members. No does really mean no.

To Be Excellent to Each Other means to use common sense, to be polite, and sometimes to work things out among yourselves. Misunderstandings happen, and sometimes just a word or two can sort it all out with another member.

If you are unable to resolve an issue with another member of the community, please let one the admins know about the situation. They will confer with the other admins and work with you and the other member(s) involved for the best resolution for the community. The decision of the admin panel is final.

Penalties can range from a simple chat to clear up the misunderstanding to a member being censured and losing various privileges across the community, a full ban for a specific time period, or even a permanent ban for life. Membership in the community is a privilege and not a right.

This Code of Conduct is subject to change without prior notice. It is the individual member's responsibility to be aware of the content of these rules. Questions, comments, and concerns are always welcome.

I really appreciate the courtesy with which this board is conducted,  and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those of you who have set the tone which makes it such a special place. Your hard work and vigilance is much appreciated.  It is rare on line to find a place which feels so safe and where the general tone is of kindliness.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)
