All interactions must have the community at heart.
DUG is a mature community and our members have explored various dark or morbid RP themes as part of their stories, such as the Cult of Papa. Players showing derogatory RP themes have to make their genuine OOC intentions and purposes clear to the rest of the community and the DUG staff.
To fully understand this policy, you must first understand the difference between IC (In-Character) and OOC (Out-of-Character). OOC thoughts and actions come from the person and his or her genuine intentions. IC actions come from a constructed and artificial persona. With this policy we are not restricting IC actions, however IC and OOC actions will be judged by their OOC intentions and purpose. While we hardly restrict IC RP, it will not be an excuse to hide OOC intentions that are unfit for our community behind RP.
When the community or team feels like a group displaying derogatory themes is not showing a visible and successful effort to outline genuine OOC intentions and purpose, the DUG team will intervene to either help support efforts of genuine OOC intentions and purpose or will censor and punish intentions that are unfit for the community such as specific harassment or complete disregard of others.
These efforts are most likely successful when they include subreddit posts, OOC interaction with other community members, the ability to compromise as well as unique creativity in RP.
