Community Guidelines

Last Updated January, 2022

Welcome to Role!

At Role, our mission is to provide an exciting, community oriented, video based, role-playing platform experience where users can interact safely. To achieve this goal, we ask that all users participate in such a way that promotes a friendly, positive-experience community in all Role spaces, whether online or offline. In addition to our Terms of Service, we have prepared the following guidelines for our community. These apply to all users, user generated content and user activity on our Services and may be updated based on the evolution of the Role community and our Service.

To protect the integrity of our community, as the provider of the Service, we at Role reserve the right to suspend any account at any time for any conduct that we determine to be inappropriate or harmful. Such actions may include: removal of content and/or suspension of account(s).

Breaking the Law

You must respect all applicable local, national, and international laws while using our Services. Any content or activity featuring, encouraging, offering, or soliciting illegal activity is prohibited.

Suspension Evasion

All suspensions are binding until expiration or removal upon successful appeal. Any attempt to circumvent an account suspension by using other accounts, identities, or by appearing on another user’s account may also result in an additional enforcement against your accounts, up to an indefinite suspension.

Self-Destructive Behavior

Any activity that may endanger your life or lead to your physical harm is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: suicide threats, intentional physical trauma, illegal use of drugs, illegal or dangerous consumption of alcohol, and dangerous or distracted driving. We do not make exceptions for self-destructive behavior performed as a stunt or gag made in jest, or meant to entertain, when the behavior could reasonably be expected to cause physical injury.

Violence and Threats

Acts and threats of violence will be taken seriously and are considered zero-tolerance violations and all accounts associated with such activities may be indefinitely suspended. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Attempts or threats to physically harm or kill others
  • Attempts or threats to hack, DDOS, or SWAT others
  • Use of weapons to physically threaten, intimidate, harm, or kill others

Role does not allow content that depicts, glorifies, encourages, or supports terrorism, or violent extremist actors or acts. This includes threatening to or encouraging others to commit acts that would result in serious physical harm to groups of people or significant property destruction. You may not display or link terrorist or extremist propaganda, including graphic pictures or footage of terrorist or extremist violence, even for the purposes of denouncing such content.

Hateful Conduct and Harassment

Hateful conduct and harassment are not allowed on Role. Hateful conduct is any content or activity that promotes or encourages discrimination, denigration, harassment, or violence based on the following protected characteristics: race, ethnicity, color, caste, national origin, immigration status, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, serious medical condition, and veteran status. Role has zero tolerance for hateful conduct, we afford every user equal protections under this policy, regardless of their particular characteristics.

Harassment has many manifestations, including stalking, personal attacks, and promotion of physical harm. Sexual harassment, specifically, can take the form of unwelcome sexual advances and solicitations, sexual objectification, or degrading attacks relating to a person’s perceived sexual practices.

Unauthorized Sharing of Private Information and Impersonation

Do not invade the privacy of others. It is prohibited to share content that may reveal private personal information about individuals, or their private property, without permission. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Sharing personally identifiable information (such as real name or location)

Intellectual Property Rights

You should only share content that you own, or that you otherwise have rights to or are authorized to share on Role. If you share content through your Role account that you do not own or otherwise do not have the rights to share on Role, you may be infringing another person’s intellectual property rights. This includes any third party content included in your content, derivative creations, or performances of others’ copyrighted content. We encourage you to assess your content for adherence to applicable intellectual property laws and the proper application of principles such as fair use, and to secure all appropriate rights needed, before sharing your content on Role.

Any unauthorized content you share on Role may be subject to a takedown by the rights holder(s) to remove the infringing content from Role, and is a violation of our Terms of Service and these Community Guidelines. Multiple violations of our policies may lead to a permanent suspension of your account.

Examples of content you should not share on Role without permission from the copyright owners or unless otherwise permitted by law include any content, including movies, television shows, images, music or video games, you do not own or have the rights to share.

Off-Service Conduct

Role is committed to facilitating inclusive communities, which can only happen if our users feel secure and protected. In order to achieve this goal, Role may enforce against severe offenses committed by members of the Role community that occur outside of our Services, such as hate group membership, terrorist recruitment, sexual assault, and child grooming. We may investigate reports that include verifiable evidence of these behaviors and, if we are able to confirm, issue enforcements against the relevant users. We may also consider allegations of similarly severe conduct by those wishing to join the Role community and, if substantiated, we may terminate the account.
