The rules below are a simplified version which will give you a good overview of the rules of conduct we expect our users to abide by. However, the non-simplified version of these rules is the canonical version and all judgements will be based off of those rules. </p> + <p> =&gt; The society is governed by a council which has the final say in all matters. Sub-councils will be created if a particular sub-group gets large enough. Also, individual groups (for example, the group for those who enjoy tea) have their own leaders who are responsible for moderating their group. </p> + <p> =&gt; Membership in the Jade Rune Society is by invitation only. Someone who is invited to join must be invited by someone in an authority position (i.e. anybody described in the paragraph above) and must be a member for at least 30 days before they can vote in society matters or be considered for a leadership position. </p> + <p> =&gt; Our main driving philosophy is "live and let live." Members are expected to follow the following rules of conduct both inside and outside the society:</p> + <ul> + <li>Do not intentionally hurt another person in any way;</li> + <li>Do not intentionally harass, stalk, intimidate, or discriminate against anyone in any way;</li> + <li>Do not break the laws of your legal jurisdiction;</li> + <li>Do not break the laws of Canada or Germany when it comes to content posted on JadeRune.net services (this includes emails to others and private chats done using our infrastructure);</li> + <li>Do not actively or passively support any kind of terrorist, hate, alt-right, or neo-nazi groups</li> + <li>Do not share information you know about another member of the society without their permission first;</li> + <li>Do not post or share any 18+ material on any JadeRune.net service, especially not to any under-aged person. Things such as lewd jokes and discussions about sex and genitalia in an educational manner are okay, but pornography, sexualized fan fiction, and other such material is not;</li> + <li>Do not post about drugs or other similar substances on any JadeRune.net service unless it is explicitly allowed in that group, and do not promote its use in front of under-aged persons.</li> + </ul> + <p> =&gt; If any violation of the above rules has occurred, please bring your complaint first to your subgroup leader, and later to the society council if you feel that the subgroup leader did not act justly. Everyone has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a real court of law, and we aim to follow that within our society as well.</p> + <p> =&gt; If someone has violated the rules, they may be terminated from the society, temporarily suspended, or have some other privileges revoked.</p> + <p> =&gt; Finally, these rules can change at any time, but we will make a best effort to notify everyone so that the rules don't change out from under someone overnight.</p> + <hr> + <h2>Full Rules</h2> <p>The key words “MUST”, “MUST NOT”, “REQUIRED”, “SHALL”, “SHALL NOT”, “SHOULD”, “SHOULD NOT”, “RECOMMENDED”, “MAY”, and “OPTIONAL” in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.</p> <p><a href="https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2119">https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2119</a></p> <h2 id="rules-of-structure">1 Rules of Structure</h2> - <p>The Jade Rune Society is meant to be a distributed, international society capable of accommodating thousands of members.
