Amazon Basin Code of Conduct
While the history of the Basin prompts us to describe the following points, they are not a comprehensive list by any means. This document is not a list of hard rules, but rather a generic framework of the rights and duties of an Amazon Basin (AB) Member. AB Members are expected to use their good judgement in any situation involving the Basin, not refer to this Code as a gospel, or worse, as a book of laws.
Behavior in the Basin environment
What makes the Basin so special in all the games it takes part in is its friendly atmosphere. By becoming a member, you will gain access to a member-only environment, where you will be among respectful and nice people, and recognition from the community that you embody this friendly atmosphere. All Basin members are expected to act according to those standards, so that this recognition never fails. Also, please keep in mind that our membership is very diversified as far as age, gender, culture, and interests are concerned. Basin members should respect this diversity.
Behavior outside of the Basin environment
The Basin grows and lives by attracting people sharing our core values. Those people maynot know us yet, but sometimes meeting a person according to Basinstandards outside of its environment will lead to a relationship that will eventually bring a new and worthy person to our community. Some of us may think that your behavior outside of Basin games reflects on the Basin; others of us may not. Regardless, we think it is fair to ask that you consider whether your behavior elsewhere is consistent with what is generally expected of all Amazon Basin members.
As an Amazon Basin Member, you have been given access to a host of extra privileges. Enjoy them, but please bear in mind that it is now also your responsibility to protect them. Everyone counts on one another to protect our in-game assets (items, characters, etc.), our passwords, and the sanctity of our forums. This includes the subject of various conversations, and the methods of our inner mechanisms, as well as the existence of specific memberside forums. Thus, it is the duty of every Basin Member to protect those assets to the best of their ability, which means not sharing memberside information with non-members, and also taking basic steps to protect access to the Basin web site. If you are unsure what steps to take in order to protect your privacy, we have very technically-savvy folks that can help you.
The Amazon Basin is such a huge and living community because of the contributions of its members. When joining the Amazon Basin membership, you gain the opportunity of taking an active part in this. Extra organizational duties (forum moderation, management of in-game assets, organization of special events...) are handled on a volunteer basis. We hope that as an AB Member you will contribute back to our community in your own way.
While not strictly a democracy, the AB cares a lot about the opinion of its members. We have many discussions, both long-term and short-term, on how to improve ourcommunity, solve our problems, etc... Sometimes (as little as possible) we find it necessary to issue a new policy either strictly memberside or to the community at large: we do not do this by pleasure, but because managing such a huge group of people requires some administrative tasks. We hope that as an AB Member, you will try to keep in touch with the current state of affairs, and visit our discussion forums from time to time. As an AB member, you are expected to comply with any policy put in place, whether you agree with it or not: policies are put in place for the well-being of the guild and the community at large.
