The site is provided free of charge to everyone, and is subject to the occasional failure that is out of our control. We are not responsible for you losing out on a sure win, it happens.
Breaking any of the rules listed below is subject to warnings and moderative action against your account (regardless of if you were reported), and in extreme cases we may revoke your access to this site.
Most violations will be addressed with a Warning > Timeout > Ban protocol, unless otherwise stated, or warning cannot be achieved due to violator's absence. In the latter case, the offence may be excused, depending on the severity, until the violator is warned.
Additionally, any malicious activity (i.e. trying to crash the site) or attempts to intentionally subvert rules using gaps in rulings or loopholes will be considered breaking the rules.
In general, most language is acceptable.
Explicitly forbidden words:
Other forbidden behaviour:
Anything not listed above is probably fine to use, provided there is no malicious intent or spam.
This also applies to game room names, even if the room is private, unless it is anonymous only. Any room with a forbidden name will be deleted.
This does not apply to private game chat.
AFK players are given 3 minutes to return before they are considered to be violating the rules, and any table waiting on an AFK player to return, is asked to wait those 3 minutes before remaking/leaving. Punishments for a player's AFK's escalate relative to the number of times they AFK'ed in a 24 hour chain. For each AFK, the 24 hour period is reset and any additional AFK that occurs within those 24 hours increases the punishment.
AFK punisments are as follows:
In certain cases, a player is allowed to leave an active game without punishment. Before the first election is voted on, a player is allowed to leave if they don't have time to play, they don't want to play 6p (etc.), or there is a seated player they have blacklisted. After the first election is voted on, those excuses may not be used. A player is also allowed to leave during a game in case of an emergency. For any of these situations, the player MUST contact a Moderator to explain their reason for leaving.
Accounts generally follow Acceptable Language for what is allowed on them. Private accounts are not subject to moderation, but can only play in private games.
Account names strictly follow Acceptable Language rules. Any account found breaking this rule will be toggled private, or banned if severe enough.
Card-backs follow Acceptable Language, and additionally must not contain images from the site that can appear over the card-back, anything that would be unsafe for work, or nazi imagery. Card-backs breaking this rule will be removed. Animated card-backs will be converted to a static image.
All players are expected to play fairly and reasonably in non-casual, non-private games. Casual games are more loosely moderated, and private games are mostly moderation-free.
The following is not allowed:
Examples of when to lie as liberal (not a complete list):
Any conflicts (i.e. BRR vs RR) started by a liberal must be resolved before the next government, unless you can prove it is beneficial to maintain it. Additionally, lies in general should be resolved by the time the deck ends, or when hitler zone starts.
The following is allowed:
AEM reserves the right to determine what conduct is considered to be a violation of the rules established. Rules open to interpretation are to be decided by AEM on whether specific actions are violations. If a member of AEM requests you not do something, continuing such action will be punishable. All moderative actions are taken as a team. This means there is always a discussion involved, so as to prevent biased, rushed or inconsistent actions.
Players with less than 10 games played can not chat in general chat, chat as an observer, or make player reports.
