  • By Legolas_Katarn, in Frontpage,


    The AJSA Code of Conduct has been updated. The new version of the CoC has been given better organization, clarifications, additional points that we have had to address or that we were asked about over the years, better stated goals of what we want to create with the community, and it is now all contained in one thread instead of two. If you are a new or old member please look through it so you understand our policies.
    -
    The AJSA Community was created as a way to organize and bring together both fans of Joe and those who are looking for a community where they can play and talk about games. It is not a problem if you do not watch Joe's content, we will still be happy to have you as a member. Currently, the AJSA consists of this website, the AJSA Discord, our Youtube channel, official clans and groups in a variety of PC games, and our active PS4 and Xbox One communities.
    In order to stay a member you must abide by the following rules, which will apply in all the previously mentioned areas, and anywhere you are representing the AJSA. Members will be expected to maintain a mature and respectful attitude as your behavior fosters our reputation.
    Harassment and Discrimination
    The AJSA will not tolerate any form of discrimination, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or harassment towards anyone. Members will respect others of any race, sexuality, gender identity and expression, nationality, religion, age, profession, gaming ability, and community rank and will refrain from insulting anyone as having physical disabilities or mental disorders. Failure to do so will lead to you either being suspended or, more often, permanently removed from the community. Offensive stereotypes and generalizations towards the communities, countries, or organizations of others will result in moderation action against you. Making unwanted or random sexual or suggestive comments towards other members will lead to moderation. Do not share or repeat phrases, actions, icons, or memes that have been created by or that have obviously been co-opted by harassment or hate groups, doing so can see you removed from the community. Creating or sharing content made with an intent to lead to harassment of others will lead to moderation. Creating or sharing baseless or obviously incorrect slanderous content will see the content removed and will likely result in moderation or removal from the community. Attempting to start fights or to use the AJSA as your own personal army to attack other communities or individuals will lead to your removal from the AJSA. Threatening others will lead to your removal from the community. Sharing videos or articles from people and websites who frequently engage in any of the above will lead to the content being removed and moderation action against you if the shared piece of content included any of the above. If you are representing the AJSA (have AJSA tags or an AJSA avatar, are a ranking member of the community, a member of our Stream Team, are sharing our content or event news, or are telling people you are a member) on social media, a different forum or Discord, Youtube, Twitch, etc and you are taking any of the above you will face moderation and may be removed.
    If ever you are subject to personal abuse by another AJSA member in the form of a personal message you are able to add a Moderator or Admin to the conversation, this will allow them to see what was said by both sides. We encourage you to do this as we take our members being subject to abuse very seriously. If someone is harassing you on the forums or AJSA Discord report it to a moderator or admin, do not retaliate.
    Attempts to create a hostile and unwelcoming environment within the community will see you removed from the community. The Angry part of the name does not need to be taken literally, we are here so people can enjoy games and to talk and learn about them, not to be overly aggressive or perpetually outraged about them.
    Disallowed Content
    Illegal Content: We do not allow the posting of illegal content. This can include linking people to places where they can pirate games, posting links to full movies, telling people where to download roms or bios files for emulators, asking about the use of or how to acquire drugs, etc. Admitting to video game (or any other media) piracy is not allowed, apart from the legality, it could negatively affect the reputation of Joe and other community members that actively work and interact with developers and publishers. Posing illegal content or admitting to illegal activities can lead to your removal from the community. Discussing the concept of piracy and the ways that it has either positively or negatively effected the industry is allowed, the above rules apply in those discussions. Partaking in or attempting to justify piracy in an area that has no need for it because you thought a company was mean or that their games were bad is not going to go over well with moderators or admin.
    Pornographic Content: We do not allow the posting of pornographic material, real or animated, on our forums, nor do we allow links to porn to be posted. We do not allow linking to content on a site with primarily pornographic content and advertising, even if the content that you wanted to link does not directly contain any (don't link to that funny video if it is hosted on pornhub). Discussion of sexual content in games is allowed, as is linking to something like a video game bundle deal that includes games with adult content is also allowed, just mark any such links as being NSFW (not safe for work).
    Real World Violence/Triggering Content: We do not allow posts that contain bloody or graphic real world violence or content that can be sensitive to certain viewers. Do not post anything containing real world shootings, stabbings, racist tirades, abuse, sexual harassment or assault, graphic injuries, etc. Do not post random images or videos with rapidly changing images or patterns that may trigger epileptic seizures. Warnings can vary depending on what you posted.
    Religion and Politics: Do not create threads about religion or politics, exceptions can be made if it directly relates to a game being discussed or the game industry (Here's how A Mind Ever Voyaging was one of the first games to address political issues/How that Dragon Cancer addresses faith = Fine). Posting a thread about religion or politics will likely result in a warning but offensive statements and content aimed at an entire religion, group, or attempting to treat the morality, lived experiences of, or existence of people as a political debate subject will fall under harassment and discrimination and will likely lead to you being removed from the community or lead to a harsher punishment.
    Advertising: We do not allow members to attempt to sell things on the forums. We have no way to verify if someone actually has a product, what condition it is in, if the seller will actually send it, if the buyer receives it, if the buyer will pay for it and not try to do a charge back, etc. Threads attempting to sell something will be removed, if you sell something in private and it doesn't work out we don't want to hear about it. Any account linking to gold farming websites for MMOs or EA Sports currency will be banned, they are also likely bots and the links should not be clicked on. Accounts that join just to promote a product, link to a survey, ask for money, or link to another community to join will be banned (there is an exception for accounts sharing video game crowd funding projects in the appropriate section of the forums). If you are someone who creates content and you have something like a Patreon, you are free to link that in your forum signature or in the community content sections of the forums.
    Languages: We require that everyone write in English on the forums and in our Discord, both because posting in another language is unlikely to lead to many people understanding what you said and because admin and moderators need to understand what you are saying or linking people to. Obviously, we don't expect everyone to have perfect grammar and to spell everything correctly all the time, but if a post has so many mistakes that it is nonsensical it will likely be removed.
    Alt Accounts: Alternate accounts will be banned and users who create them risk the banning of their primary accounts and any other accounts found to be associated with them. If you are having trouble with your primary account and are unable to access it please contact a moderator on the Discord or create a new account and immediately let a moderator know that you are using the new account to contact them for help. Once you have received help with your primary account and are able to access it again the secondary account will be deleted.
    Usernames and Avatars: Do not create a username or upload an avatar that breaks any of the CoC rules or includes profanity, this applies to the forums, Discord, and while playing games.
    Forum and Discord Rules
    Trolling: Treat other members with respect. Do not post flame-bait or personal attacks, attempt to derail another member's thread, or post in game or console specific threads just to complain about the gaming preferences or hardware of other members. You can be a member of the AJSA even if you don't watch or like the content that Joe creates, but joining for the sole purpose of creating threads or going into existing ones to complain about him will see you removed from the community, this also applies to people that are doing nothing but complaining about the AJSA. Attempts at gaslighting (pretending like you didn't say something you obviously did, that your obvious intent was misunderstood, making an attempt to accuse other people of doing the thing you did, etc) either to try to cover your actions up, confuse people, or to try to get people to respond aggressively towards you will lead to moderation. Attempting to bring previous fights or grievances into new threads will lead to moderation. We don't mind some minor ribbing between members that know each other but unless moderators/admin are familiar with the people involved it can be easy to mistake it for trolling if it starts to go too far.
    Drama: Intentionally trying to cause trouble and create dissent is not allowed, problems can be privately discussed with AJSA Admin. Officers going on power trips will see them removed from a position of power. Do not create threads to complain about another member of the community. Attempts at grandstanding by creating "goodbye threads" when something upsets you will result in your account being banned, if you have a legitimate reason for leaving there is nothing wrong with letting people know but if you try to make a spectacle of it or convince people to go with you we will help you find your way out.
    Spam: Do not bump threads just to get them to the top of the list. Do not post in discussion threads that are over a month old to bring them back from the dead (if months or years have passed and you want to talk about it again just start a new topic on the subject). Do not create chat threads (chatting can easily be done in our Discord or through private messages). Do not quote reply to massive amounts of text and images or quote chain to the point that your posts start taking up huge portions of a thread page. Do not make double posts shortly after your previous one as a form of editing or to quote and respond to multiple people, an edit button can be found at the bottom of each of your post and you can change or add to your post as needed. If you have found new information about something and some time has passed then you can make multiple posts in a row in the same thread.
    Language: We allow swearing within reason but try to keep it to a minimum, we have people that just want an environment where they can relax and unwind while talking about and playing games. If you create an entire post that is next to nothing but swearing, are constantly swearing in chat rooms, or are raging at a video game the community is playing and are making it difficult for other to enjoy themselves you will be asked to tone it down or you will be removed from the game. Profanity directed at other members can result in a warning.
    Thread Creation: Use the search feature to check to see if a thread with the same subject matter as the one you want to post has already been created, or at least do a quick look through the recent topics, duplicate threads are frequently created only a few posts or hours apart. Do not create threads with profanity in the title, with misleading titles, or ones with no discussion or informational value.
    Personal Information: Do not share the contents of private messages with other members, if you receive a message that is breaking the CoC, harassing you, etc let a moderator or appropriate admin know. Do not post the private information of other members, breaking either of these rules can result in moderation or removal from the AJSA.
    Impersonation: Do not attempt to impersonate another member of the community, either by creating an account with a similar name or by quoting a post and changing the text to make it look like something else was said in a way that is clearly malicious.
    Source Content: If you are posting the work of someone else please post a source if one is obviously available (don't copy and paste an entire article instead of just linking to the site or person that wrote it), attempting to pass the work of others off as your own can lead to removal from the community.
    Etiquette: Do not participate in flame wars or post in threads that are clearly against the rules. If you see something against the CoC just report it and move on, drawing more attention to things that are clearly against the rules can lead to you getting in trouble as well. Liking posts that are clearly against the CoC may lead to you sharing the warning or punishment of the original poster. Do not post spoilers for a recently released video game or movie in the title of a thread and if you wish to discuss spoilers on our Discord use the appropriate chat room (spoilers_chat), if you are in a thread about a game or movie that won't obviously include spoilers based on the title then use the spoiler button (the eye icon in between the quote and emoticon button) so that your text is not immediately visible. When you join Discord you should have your account automatically set to move you into the AFK channel if you are in a voice channel without speaking for 10 minutes, please keep that on so that a game officer or moderator doesn't have to move you from channels if you accidentally remain in an active voice channel when you are away.
    In-Game Behavior
    Cheating and Glitching: If you are playing against human opponents the AJSA absolutely does not allow cheating, third-party tools, or glitches to be used to win games. In addition to ruining the game for others, it damages the AJSA's reputation and will result in you being removed from the community.
    Language/Raging: As was previously mentioned, try to keep it to a minimum. Constantly swearing to the extent that you are ruining the mood of other players or becoming hostile to others can lead to your membership or ability to participate in game events being reconsidered. Rage quitting can also lead to your membership being reconsidered. No personal attacks or offensive “shit talking” to our opposition, competitiveness is fine but keep it friendly, trying to starts fights with other people will see you removed from the game and possibly the AJSA.
    Guilds/Clans/MMOs: Many games limit the number of members that can be part of a guild (or the game's guild equivalent), therefore it might be necessary for us to remove inactive members to make room for new players. If you were removed from a guild for this reason, it is nothing against you, it is just something that needs to be done sometimes to make room for new active recruits. If you are part of a group that has these limitations and you plan to stop playing the game please let the guild leader know and leave the group to make room for new people, if you plan to return at a later date they will try to add you to the group again by replacing other inactive members.
    Represent the AJSA well by playing fair and having respect for the opposition, your team, and yourself. Help new players to get used to games or to get involved in the community and work well with the people you meet that aren't part of the AJSA to give people a positive impression of us. A better reputation in games will lead to a better and more respected community that will be easier to recruit for.
    Admin and Moderation Team
    Member must respect the decisions of AJSA admin (Council and Commanders) and moderators (General, Discord, and Twitch). If you disagree with something they have said or done you can privately contact them, making your problems with them public or insulting them on the website, Discord, during game events, or within the PS4 Rooms will only add to previous punishments or cause one to be issued. The admin and moderator rank is clearly listed on the forums and their role clearly listed on the Discord, obvious attempting to block their private messages to you when they are attempting to warn you about recent CoC breaking behavior will likely result in your removal from the community. You may receive a verbal warning in the form of a private message about a specific incident or trend of behavior, these verbal warnings should be respected the same as one through the warning system, to ignore a verbal warning can lead to harsher punitive action.
    Admin are able to curate the community as they see fit and reserve to right to remove content that, while not specifically mentioned by name in the CoC, has a history of or is currently used in a way that either breaks other rules listed here, would lead to the kind of membership that we want to avoid, or that would lead to the community having a bad reputation.
    Immediate Bans: AJSA staff have the right to immediately ban members caught cheating, spamming the forums with advertisements, posting pornography or hate speech, harming the AJSA’s reputation, issuing death or rape threats, or displaying other extremely aggressive behavior. If violating your local law’s the AJSA may cooperate with authorities in an appropriate manner to resolve.
    Appeals: There are higher up members to contact if you are having an issue with moderators or admin. If you are having a problem with the moderation team on the forums or Discord you can contact Legolas_Katarn, if you are having a problem with PS4 staff you can contact WITHASTICK, if you are having a problem with Xbox One staff you can contact RuneX, if you are having a problem with someone running PC events you can contact Conan or Eiousx, if you are having a problem with a Commander you can contact another Commander if the problem area falls under their job description or you can contact Council members DoctorEvil or Tons0fun. If a warning or punitive action was found to be a mistake, or was not justly issued, the punishment will be over-turned and the warning removed, if someone was found to have acted inappropriately the situation will be dealt with by whoever is in charge of that area. Acting hostile and insulting staff members during these appeals or showing no understanding of why an obvious rule is in place can lead to further actions taken against your account. Things that can lead to strong penalties against your account tend to be pretty obvious rules found in most every functional community, if your messages to us show a complete lack of self awareness, empathy, inability to understand why certain rules are in place, or some weird reactionary "debate me bro logic" your membership will likely be reconsidered. Appeals are for mistakes or misuse of power not for arguing against rules you don't like. Joe is not an appropriate person to file complaints with.
    The “Angry Joe” Policy
    If the sole reason for you joining this community is to “talk to”, “play with”, or “get personal time” with Joe, please DO NOT APPLY. It is possible to run into him in a game, on the website, or on the Discord, but do not be offended if he declines your friend request, game invite, etc. If Joe does join the community for an event, please conduct yourself in a civil and respectful way when interacting with him.
