      Goal: to provide an email list that allows people interested in the Living
      Greyhawk campaign to ask/answer questions, discuss matters and in general
      communicate with fellow members about the campaign.

      Guiding principles
      1) Be nice - insults, slights, etc have no place on this list.

      2) Treat everybody like a friend - remember that we all play the same game and campaign.

      3) Show maturity - maturity is when you apply discipline to your own impulses (emails).

      4) Use the Golden rule - treat everybody on the list like you want to be
      treated.

      5) When in doubt follow general netiquette guidelines
      (http://www.fau.edu/netiquette/net/index.html)

      6) Keep paragraphs and messages short and to the point.

      7) The use of this list is a privilege, not a right, which may be temporarily
      or permanently revoked at any time for abusive conduct.

      8) Keep discussions on topic. Virtually anything related to Living Greyhawk
      is on topic. Other game systems/campaigns and IC chat are off topic.



      Specific Rules
      1) Only three posts a day except for RPGA Volunteers and Staff representing
      an official position.... if you're not sure then you are not authorized, ask
      me in a private email. Always add your position to your signature of an
      "official" post (an official post can be as simple as answering a question
      about an area you are responsible for). The timeframe that constitutes a
      'day' is from 12am to 12am Eastern time.

      2) When new official files (such as updated versions of the Living Greyhawk
      Campaign Supplement) are posted to the file library, a moratorium on
      discussion will be in play from posting time until 24 hours after the next
      morning at 9am Eastern Time. This time will generally be posted with
      the file announcement. (For example, a file uploaded at 10pm on Sunday
      night is not available for discussion until 9am Eastern Time on Tuesday.)

      3) Don't troll - trolling is posting in a way that is known to insult people
      and is an attempt to start a flame war.

      4) NO flame wars - take personal issues to private email, take heated or dead
      horse debates private.

      5) No cussing or pseudo cussing .. posting a cuss word with one or two letters
      removed is just as bad, don't do it.

      6) NO spamming - if you're not sure ask me in a private email

      7) NO IC (in character) chat. IC chats have their own lists, please use them.

      8) If you have a concern that someone is violating a rule, send that one
      person and me (Living_Greyhawk-owner@yahoogroups.com) an email, don't blast
      people on the list.

      9) File uploads allowed, however you have ask me or another moderator in a
      private email.

      10) Polls are only allowed by request.

      11) Chain letters and other solicitations are not allowed.

      12) Discuss topics not people. Keep discussions focused on the points not on a
      person.

      13) No explicit talk about mutilation, sex, torture, rape or murder. All of
      these things do happen in the game, however discussing these issues in
      detailed graphic terms is inappropriate.

      14) If the moderators can't send E=mail to members of the list when they need
      to send a warning (or any other email) they will be set to "no email".
      This means that the user will not receive messages or digests, but can
      still read messages on the Web.


      Allowed Posts
      1) Announcements about conventions and gamedays featuring LG modules. The
      announcement should only be made once or twice (see below for format).

      2) Announcements to form groups for special events (i.e. TOEE) only make the
      announcement once, then go private.



      Recommendations (Not rules)
      1) When bringing up a rules issue cite the document and page number.
      (i.e. PHB p34)

      2) When replying to a rules issue cite the document and page number that
      supports your position.

      3) Avoid referring to issues by citing "in my home campaign we....".

      4) Avoid "back in 2E", etc

      5) Avoid referring to what other RPGA campaigns do... each campaign is
      separate.

      6) Always read ALL current messages before replying.. many times someone has
      already replied with an answer.

      7) Include your signature at the bottom of Email messages when communicating
      with people who may not know you personally or broadcasting to a dynamic
      group of subscribers.

      8) It is considered extremely rude to forward personal email to the mailing
      list without the original author's permission. When in doubt, Ask!

      9) Be careful when using sarcasm and humor. Your joke may be viewed as
      criticism.

      10) Edit your reply to exclude irrelevant text.

      11) One line "Me Too" emails are generally not necessary. Spend the time to
      explain you agreement when appropriate.

      12) Spell check your document and check your grammar. Poorly written emails are
      confusing and your key points will probably go unnoticed.

      13) If you have just joined the list please just read for a few days before
      jumping in.

      14) Avoid references to your real life social/political pet peeves. They're
      off topic, even if you do link them to an LG issue.

      Insulting words (and ones that are frequently confused) to be avoided:
      Powergamer, Rules Lawyer, Munchkin, Rollplayer, "Whine", its derivatives,
      and similar terms (moan, cry, etc.). The derogatory term 'Living Ghetto'
      should also not be used, as many people find it offensive and not one bit funny.

      Status of this list
      This list is a privately run list and is not officially/legally related to
      WOTC, the RPGA nor the LG campaign. All posts are only as official as each
      poster is able to claim it to be so.
