Terms of Use

From Mizahar Lore

Jump to: navigation, search

Mizahar is a fantasy world that may contain mature themes and topics, and should be considered inappropriate for children due to the strong nature of certain themes (violence, warfare, substance abuse, etc) depicted in threads. We gather here because we all love the game, the interaction the game brings, and the ability to escape the real world and join a fantasy one for a time. Real life is difficult enough without bringing many of the problems that exist within our lives into Mizahar’s World. By posting to Mizahar's Forums and Lore, you give us full permission to use and modify any ideas or concepts contained in your posts.

We are interested in creating a supportive, friendly atmosphere in Mizahar, and we strive to take this approach to dealing with any infractions of these Terms of Use. If guidelines are not followed, members will first be informed that their content is in violation of the site's guidelines and referred to the Terms of Use. Posts containing subject matter that has been listed as ‘inappropriate’ will be removed in all cases. Should a member persist in violating the Terms of Use, that member will no longer be allowed to post on the forums. We encourage users who believe that a violation of the Terms of Use has occurred to inform the administrators via the 'Report a Post' button available at the top of every post, or via the Help Desk.

In addition, Founders have the right to Uninvite (ie. Ban) any user off Mizahar whom they feel is not a good fit for the site. This will not be done lightly, but has and will continue to happen as situations arise. A player does not have the right to be warned or given chances to retain player status on Mizahar. Players can be univited at any time. The Founders and staff are dedicated to the long term success of this site as an RPG haven for writers. They will do all in our power to make sure people understand the rules and get along with one another, but there are times and places swift action is far more appropriate than trying to educate or urge a player to follow the site rules.

In Conclusion

The Staff of Mizahar request that all users remain respectful and courteous towards all other members of the forum at all times. We believe that these guidelines are fair and acceptable, and that all users should respect our reasons for keeping them in place. No one is here to ‘police’ behavior; we simply strive to maintain a community free of inappropriate or illegal material. Should a user have any problems or issues regarding any subject on the forum or the acts of any other user, they are encouraged to use the Help Desk for assistance.
