Community Policies All Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. The Skjaldborg is a mature community that is not appropriate for minors. Imposing this restriction, while it can seem arbitrary, is done to protect minors as well as to protect our Community. All members of the Skjaldborg Community must abide by the established Code of Conduct. When in doubt, remember, Be Excellent to Each Other. Failure to abide by the Code of Conduct will result in: warnings, removal, and/or banning from the Community. The Skjaldborg will not impose playtime requirements as a condition of membership in the Community. We are all adults and have busy schedules, we are here for enjoyment and to relieve stress rather than to work. The Skjaldborg must strive to be inclusive, rather than exclusive. Participation in Community activities is to be encouraged rather than forced, and enthusiasm should draw people to participate with their fellows rather than fear of removal. Members of the Skjaldborg Community are expected to remain up to date on the forums. The forums is our primary means of communication. It crosses all game boundaries and timezones and is essential for disseminating news. Recognition for achievements in the Community or in Game Branches will be given in the form of forum 'Ribbons'. These are little tokens which people can work towards and feel a sense of accomplishment by achieving. Extraordinary achievement will be rewarded with a forum 'Medal'. These represent actions taken above and beyond which shine a positive light on our community. The Community will be managed by ranked members with defined expectations and responsibilities. Members of higher rank are those who desire to give extra time to help the Community flourish.
