1 ) Be excellent to each other on the forum, in online games and in IRC, Discord or any other online activity.
2 ) Violation of 1) will cause the moderation team to take action.
3 ) The moderation team will be a team of 7 active volunteers who will be self-regulating and will enforce these rules. Moderators may act unilaterally only when they are justified in so doing.
4 ) Moderation actions are at the final discretion of the moderation group. Any appeals of actions taken must be answered in public forums. An upheld appeal will have the moderation event completely reversed.
5 ) The steering group will be a group of three OAPs, who will add, modify and remove rules as they see fit. For posterity, Steering Group members will be known as 'The Elders'.
6 ) The moderators may ask The Elders for clarity on rules. Any such clarifications must be written into the rules.
7 ) Should someone on the moderation group become inactive or wish to stand down, then a replacement will be sought from the general population of the forums, on a merit basis, as decided by the remainder of the group.
8 ) Should a member of The Elders become inactive or wish to relinquish the role, then an election will be held for a replacement.
9 ) Membership of The Elders will be determined by election. Membership of The Elders is contingent on having no moderation actions taken against the member for 12 months and that member not being in the Moderation Group.
10) Membership of the Moderation Group may only last a period of 12 months, after which a sabbatical must be taken of at least 3 months duration. Membership of the Moderation Group is contingent on having no moderation actions having been taken against the member for 6 months and that member not being an Elder.
