Code of Conduct

Where there is no will, no rules or laws can help. - Helmut Kohl

Teamspeak / Discord

  1. The gaming channels are distinguished from the voice channels. The gaming channels are to be used for communication in game! For small talk and non-game related stuff needs to be discussed in the chat channels.
  2. Please consider the channel sizes. There's a reason why some channels have limited spots.
  3. Entering channels which are in use should be communicated with those within the channels. Just leave one of the persons in the channel a message and ask if you're okay to join instead of just forcing your way in.
  4. There are channels for BB members, allies, guests and friends.
  5. The rules apply to anyone who is in our TeamSpeak or Discord Servers. Each persons using our channels should know the rules, respect them and make new users aware of them.
  6. Violating the rules will have consequences. This can go from a warning up to a server group revoke or a ban. 
  7. Changes to the servers are to be made by admins only.
  8. Complaints and suggestions have to be forwarded to the admins. This does not mean that anyone should bother admins with childish/banal problems. Please try to fix those your own.
  9. We want love, peace and harmony in the Voice-Servers. Every member is called upon to keep the harmony!
