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:
Colluding or multi-accounting to gain an advantage
Leaving mid-game or refusing to play
Intentionally playing to lose
Intentionally playing sub-optimally (i.e. playing poorly to spite another player), unless it is a casual game
Using tactics not possible in person to gain an advantage (i.e. claiming misclick when conflicting)
Attempting to show private information (i.e. screenshot of cards or role)
Stating which role card you have (i.e. “old lady”)
Using key phrases to share information (i.e. saying “im hit” only as lib)
Using key phrases to influence specific people (i.e. pinky promises)
Threatening to blacklist or report a player if they don’t do what you want
Lying as liberal, unless it benefits your team (examples below)
Talking in a language that not everyone knows (english is always acceptable)
Voice-Chat only games, unless explicitly put in the game room name
Examples of when to lie as liberal (not a complete list):
Claiming BBR when receiving BBB - Discourages fascists from discarding blues
Claiming BR when receiving BB - Testing to see if hitler is president
Claiming a liberal is fascist on investigate - Fake conflicting to get reactions
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:
Ignoring “meta” or “correct order” of play
Using a personal meta that does not break the above rules (i.e. never lying on claims)
Having a discussion on what to do, even if it takes a long time, unless all other players are asking for play to continue
Having a play-style that can reveal information (i.e. never conflicting as chancellor), provided it is not claim-based (i.e. only claiming BBB as lib)
Maintaining a severe lie as liberal (i.e. conflicts), provided you can prove it benefits your team when questioned
