Rules

Our Discord maintains a set of rules and guidelines that users are expected to follow. Not following these rules may result in moderator action.

  1. Read all the rules before participating in chat. Not reading the rules is not an excuse for breaking them.
    • It’s suggested that you read channel topics and pins before asking questions as well, as some questions may have already been answered in those.
  2. Be nice to each other. It’s fine to disagree, it’s not fine to insult or attack other people.
    • You may disagree with anyone or anything you like, but you should try to keep it to opinions, and not people. Avoid vitriol.
    • Constant antagonistic behavior is considered uncivil and appropriate action will be taken.
    • The use of derogatory slurs – sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise – is unacceptable and may be grounds for an immediate ban.
  3. If you have concerns about another user, please take up your concerns with a staff member (someone with the “mod” role in the sidebar) in private. Don’t publicly call other users out.

  4. From time to time, we may mention everyone in the server. We do this when we feel something important is going on that requires attention. Complaining about these pings may result in a ban.
    • To disable notifications for these pings, suppress them in “ReSwitched → Notification Settings”.
  5. Don’t spam.
    • For excessively long text, use a service like 0bin.
  6. Don’t brigade, raid, or otherwise attack other people or communities. Don’t discuss participation in these attacks. This may warrant an immediate permanent ban.

  7. Off-topic content belongs in #off-topic. Keep low-quality content like memes out.

  8. Trying to evade, look for loopholes, or stay borderline within the rules will be treated as breaking them.

  9. Absolutely no piracy. There is a zero-tolerance policy and we will enforce this strictly and swiftly.

  10. Installable homebrew NSPs are not supported here. If you are confused about how to set up homebrew properly (via hbl.nsp), it is fine to ask for assistance.

  11. The first character of your server nickname should be alphanumeric if you wish to talk in chat.
