Staff Conduct

  • No RPC staff, be they Discord or Site, may present themselves as an authority figure or use their Staff influence while acting as a member of any sexual-content-based community, chat group, forum, or social space. Furthermore, no RPC Staff may found or claim a leadership position within such a community, chat group, forum or social space while acting in their RPC Staff capacity. Any RPC staff found to be acting in violation of this principle, regardless of their prior disciplinary record or behaviour, will be immediately removed from their Staff position and barred from assuming such positions in future. Any new Staff member should, before assuming said role, remove any links mentioning their associations to the RPC Authority community from relevant social media, forums, groups, chats and servers.
  • If any user discovers evidence of an RPC staff member violating the above rule, they are strongly encouraged to pass that information on to the rest of staff and, if they deem it necessary, to post said information in a publicly-visible fashion in the RPC Office Discord server, in the interests of maximum transparency.

The rules of this site are subject to change. To appeal a punishment message an admin.
