Code of Conduct
SWG Legends is more than a collection of players. It is more than a social tab on your text window. SWG Legends is committed to organizing players and providing opportunities to improve individual gaming and server community experiences.
This relies on two things: Cooperation and Respect.
We can’t work to achieve these goals with infighting and feuding with players, guilds, groups, etc.
The Code of Conduct relies on several points, which will be discussing in more detail below.
Respect one another...
Respect all players, regardless of guild or faction...
Respect of all Social Media Platforms...
Refrain from conduct or chat that brings real life into SWG Legends in a negative way...
Uphold the Code of Conduct at all times...
Seems simple enough, however, there is plenty of room for interpretation and situations that will challenge your understanding and interpretation of the Code.
Also, for category 1 or 2 name violations, characters with this type of name can be changed immediately and without any notice. These changed characters will lose access to any structures (houses, PA Halls, or harvesters, as well as any items within these structures), venders, and any items on venders or in the bazaar. There will be no reimbursements made for any items, structures, credits, skills, or any other game related issue directly related to the character name being changed for category 1 or 2 names.
RESPECTING ONE ANOTHER
The success of your fellow players, represent your success as a member of the SWG Legends Community. If you are insulting your fellow players in anyway, regardless of his/her offenses, you are breaking the Code. It is the job of the Staff of SWG Legends to judge player offenses, not the players. By treating everyone with respect and allowing the staff to deal with problems, you help to maintain order and strength, which is necessary in achieving our goals.
RESPECT ALL PLAYERS, REGARDLESS OF GUILD OR FACTION
Whether a rival ally, or an opponent you detest, regardless of insults or offenses… SWG Legends Players will refrain from negative actions toward them. It does no good to squabble over meaningless comments. By responding in anyway, we validate that those comments have affected us, and in that we allow them to become truths to a certain degree. We are above any offenses and will not allow the negativity of others to derail the plans we have. This is also important also important because the individual actions of our players in these situations affect our community as a whole. Others perception of our community is important as it allows us to grow in a positive way. For example, think of players that exploit or trash talk, would you want to be a part of them? Would new players? Would you want someone thinking that you are a cheater or trashtalker?
RESPECTING SWG LEGENDS SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
When interacting with other players or staff members, across any of the SWG Legends Official; Social Media Platforms, please behave in a manner, that is acceptable, taking into consideration the rest of this, Code of Conduct. If a player is abusive towards you, on any SWG Legends Social Media, please report this behaviour to one of the CSR Staff.
REFRAIN FROM CONTACT
When you login, please leave any personal issues, resentments, or hang ups out of the game. If someone insults you pertaining to these issues, do not partake in the exchange. We want to create an environment where players, both young and old, from all around the world, all walks of life, can come together and enjoy themselves in the Star Wars Universe. If everyone in our community approached the game with this attitude, we would play in a much, more enjoyable, welcoming, and creative game. We ask all SWG Legends Playtes to champion this vision and help to create that world.
UPHOLDING THE CODE
Together, we can accomplish anything we want ingame, and enjoy that mission every step of the way. A bad day is no reason to hurt the reputation of a fellow player or the community as a result, and there is never a good reason to break the Code, and no defense will satisfy Staff. In being a member of this community, you take up a responsibility, to all of your fellow players. Only when you are upholding the Code, can you know that others are too. If you are slacking, it's a good bet, others are as well.
When meeting new players, or others outside of your group or guild that you run with, with the Code of Conduct in mind, we not only give them a good impression of our community, but we create an opportunity for our Conduct to “rub off” on them, and through this, we can affect the attitudes of the entire community.
Any questionable conversations, simply hit the printscreen button and save a copy of it, using avenues like imgur.com. Walk away from insulting players or difficult situations, if you think that you might lose your cool. You can take away your enemies power by simply ignoring them, or leaving them, altogether. Contact any member of the CSR Staff about any and all questions or problems. You are judged by your actions, which can affect your future in the game. If you can’t handle something, please ask for help.
The Code of Conduct does not limit your gaming experience. If trash talking and insulting is your thing, then, I’m sure there are other servers for you to join. We will not part on bad terms, if you choose proper conduct is not the route for you. The Code is not based on arrogance. We are not trying to be better than others. It is based on respect. We are trying to be better than the poor conduct, all to prevalent in our collective gaming experience.
