Code of Conduct

Welcome Kindred,

We are very honored to have you in our midst and grateful that you have given Bloodhunt a chance. Before you can interact on our Discord Server, please read the following carefully as members of our server must agree to respect and abide by these rules:
 

Discord Rules

By being on this server, you agree to general rules set by Discord which you can find here.

 

Speak the Common Language in Common Places

Communication in the main text channels is to be done in English but feel free to join our dedicated and supported channels: German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese. If you would like to access them, please assign yourself an appropriate role in the #role-assignment channel. However, please note that the local channels will be in read only mode for now and will start once we have assigned our local moderators.

 

Be Civil and Respectful

We are here to have fun, make new friends and socialize. No one has come here to be insulted, assaulted or abused,  in a public or private channel. We have a zero-tolerance policy for these kinds of behaviors, including but not limited to: harassment, doxing, impersonation, racism, sexism, homo or transphobia, demeaning/derogatory comments, content regarding sexual orientations, political or religious beliefs.

We will issue warnings for first time offenders. Second time, you are out.

And please, do not use creative ways to implement foul language to bypass filters. It is very likely someone will understand you and By the Power of Google Translate and the grace of Urban Dictionaries - we will catch you. 


 

Moderators and Devs have the Keys of the House

Sometimes a Moderator or a Dev will step in, like to help cool a heated argument, in an attempt to break up needless bickering, or something as simple as asking you to take your discussion to the right channel or to change your inappropriate nickname. Do not take offense when this happens because it isn’t personal - we do it for the wellbeing of the whole community. And in these cases, a Moderator is like a Dungeon Master; always right. This means there is no point in arguing because it isn’t a fight you are going to win.

 

Protect Yourself - Always

Never share your personal information, Bloodhunt related or otherwise. And know that NO MODS or Sharkmob employees will EVER send you a private message asking for any account details (such as passwords or personal information). So, never share that with anyone, whoever they pretend to be. It is for your own safety.


 

No Toxicity Allowed

We all have bad days and sometimes we get frustrated, we understand that. But that doesn’t excuse toxic behavior like spamming, trolling, flooding, posting NSFW or illegal content nor discussing it. Also, please refrain from discussing religious or political topics of any kind, you know this never ends well. 



No Advertising, Self-Promotion, Selling Items or Services

Posts about selling items or services, real or digital are prohibited.

Self-Promotion and advertisement are not allowed. 

 

Just Be Nice!

Finally, nobody likes to receive grief after a game so please no teasing or comments aimed at tilting your fellow Kindred. Be a nice person!


 

Send complaints and Bug reports through the Proper Channels

If you suspect someone of cheating, do not use the chat to accuse them, please report it using the following link. Also, remember that you can use the “Report a Player” button at the end of your game session on the summary screen.

If you have an in-game issue, please use the ticket bot to create a ticket. Mods cannot help you on this specific topic. But please do contact them if your issue is related to our Discord channel or if you see someone breaking our Code of Conduct. We are all in this together!

If you have been banned and think that we were way too harsh on you, fill a Ban Appeal through our Ticket system. We will review your case in due time (this might take some time depending on how busy we are).

 

A Word on Banishment

If you are found breaking our Code of Conduct, the following will happen:

First strike - You will be warned by a Mod or a Dev. Please take it seriously.

Second strike - You will be banned from our Discord.

Don’t worry about a third strike, because there won’t be one. Feeling safe and protected from abuse is of the utmost importance for us and we are adamant about keeping our Discord server a welcoming place for everybody. We prefer to spend our time focused on constructive interactions with our Community rather than management of toxic individuals.


 

Conclusion

We know that most of you will think: “well, this is common sense” and you are right. Just treat others the way you would like to be treated and everything will be fine. Also, please be aware that the list of negative behaviors mentioned above is by no mean exhaustive and we reserve the right to remove your access to the Discord server and potentially to our game if we feel there is cause for it. The bottom line is that we are here to have fun together: keep the fighting on the streets of Prague and spend your time being social, and civil, on Discord.

Thank you for reading this far! React to the with a green check once you’ve read this and enjoy your time in our Server. Have fun and see you in Bloodhunt!
