OOC Rules Changed

Post by Charzy on Sun Jan 11, 2015 6:50 pm

OOC Rule 7 which read as follows:




7 - Private Messages
To make a PM public or share it with others, you need consent from the sender and reciever(s) to do so. Do not harass or attempt to evade rules by doing it through PM, when rooted out, it leads to severe consequence.




Has been found to contain a pretty large loophole in that you could use it to invite people into agreements and plots without fear of them revealing it. In light of this, and after a very, very length discussion, the moderation team has changed the rule to the following:




7 - Private Messages
Entirely IC PMs can be shared freely, but OOC PMs cannot be, and you must receive consent from both the sender and the reciever(s) of the message to share it
There is an exception to this, however.
If you recieve a PM that is written in OOC terms but clearly provides information such that your character would know in the IC, such as an offer to join an alliance or join a plot, that information is considered from that point to be known by the character and can then be revealed.
In cases where it's not clear whether or not the above applies, a ruling can be gained from the consensus of at least two gamemasters.
Do not harass or attempt to evade rules by doing it through PM, when rooted out, it leads to severe consequence.





It's a bit more long winded that before, but it closes any loopholes we could find without opening any new ones. Read, follow, etcetera.

I was asking to know whether or not to send an alliance IC. Sorry about all the confusion.
