Our Way Oklahoma LLC & AnthroExpo - Convention Chat Rules and Regulations

Thank you for taking the time to read over the rules and regulations regarding the official AnthroExpo Telegram and Discord Chats.  These chats are moderated by unpaid volunteers for people interested in such topics for the AnthroExpo (AnEx) convention. Please follow these rules, as they are in place to keep you and your fellow fur-friends safe.

  1. Any threats or veiled threats of violence or self-harm will not be tolerated in any capacity. If you are feeling threatened by another member of the group, please contact an admin.

    1. If you are feeling suicidal or depressed - please let someone know.  We generally will point you towards local resources to help, but we always want to ensure the safety of our patrons.  Please don’t use the general chat as a means of acting out, if you truly have a problem let someone know.
       

  2. All advertisements for other events and conventions NOT sanctioned by Our Way Oklahoma, LLC or AnthroExpo 2020 are limited to posting ONCE per calendar week.  A calendar week runs Sunday through Saturday.
     

  3. No spamming messages, forwarding large batches of messages, stickers, GIFs, or pictures.

    1. We have bots that automate warnings and punishments. After three warnings, a user is banned automatically.
       

  4. Be respectful of your other chat companions.  If someone asks for a change of topic in a reasonable manner please continue that conversation in private.  Do not engage in high-risk topics such as politics and religion which could cause others to feel uncomfortable or spur arguments within the chat.
     

  5. The use of harassing, discriminating, or otherwise excessive use of unpleasant "slurs" in either written or visual form will not be tolerated. While we are not here to police every person's individual style of language, it's important to conduct yourself in a manner that's fitting of a group setting. If you feel you are being targeted directly from the use of improper language, pictures, or any form of electronic media that promotes these, please contact a mod for review.
     

  6. In the General Chat, posting media depicting pornographic or any other “adult” material will not be allowed. This refers to previous profile pictures as well. If you are in violation of this, a mod will contact you and ask for you to remove the picture within a reasonable time frame.
     

  7. While we aim to maintain a safe and comfortable chat environment, we cannot control everything.  You assume some risk and liability being involved in an online chatroom environment.  Please use common sense when sharing personal pictures, information, and any other identifying information.
     

  8. While we encourage group meets, room parties, and other events, use of the Our Way Oklahoma, LLC name for any events is strictly prohibited unless approved by a member of the Our Way Oklahoma, LLC Board of Directors.

    1. Please reach out to a moderator or to anyone on this list if you have any questions about this rule.
       

  9. On the subject of advertisement: Please clear it with us first. We ask this so that we may space our announcements accordingly. We don’t want either an artist’s advertisement or important info about upcoming events getting lost by being posted at the same time.

DISCORD SPECIFIC RULES

 

  1. You are assigned a role based on your association with AnEx.  You will have access to specific channels based on these rules.  Please do not try to circumvent the rules through any means to gain access to channels you are not allowed in.  If you are caught doing this, you will be banned from all AnthroExpo chats.
     

  2. Please make sure you keep content in voice channels specific to the age group allowed.  If you are in the PG-13 chat room, keep cursing to a minimum and do not engage in any conduct that couldn’t be reviewed by a parent for the sake of the safety of our underage users.

NSFW 18+ CHAT SPECIFIC RULES

 

  1. You must have your ID verified by a member of the Moderator Team before you will be allowed access to any of these areas.

    1. You may black out other information such as your address and driver’s license/ID number.
