The Equestria Royal Guard is an English speaking international online gaming community with the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic franchise as a common interest.
First and foremost we are gamers, but among our members, you will find artists, musicians, writers, and roleplayers. Our community plays a wide array of games together, and we are always open to new suggestions. If it’s a lot of fun we’ll play it!
We are a diverse group, with members active all over the world; ranging from US/Canada to England, Germany, Australia, Russia and Sweden. We all do our best to welcome new members and be inclusive.
But even we have rules to follow.
1: Love & Tolerate.
We are (mostly) bronies, so act like it. Don’t attack others’ religious beliefs,
moral choices, sexuality, political preferences or physical attributes. Also do not force your personal beliefs and preferences upon others.
2: Represent the Guard.
Every member among us represents us as a whole. Do not engage in any conduct
unbecoming of our community, especially in public. If you need to vent about
something, find somebody within the Guard to talk to about it. Public forums
are not the place to make yourself, and by extension all of us, look bad.
3: Respect the Guard.
The Community Officers have the final say in all matters, in game and out.
Each of them have earned their place among the leadership of the Guard, please
follow their directions, if given.
4: Not All That Glitters is Gold.
Understand that not everyone is interested in mature content, even if you are in
a designated 18+ area. Provide warnings with all links if they point to vulgar,
gory or sexual content. Such content is never acceptable as a website signature,
TeamSpeak avatar or in a forum post without spoiler tags surrounding it.
Related to Discord, TeamSpeak and other VoIP services:
1: Push to Talk.
This is a requirement. Under very controlled circumstances or with special permission you may be able to get away with voice activation, but it must be flawlessly set up with a good headset (not speakers). Live mics and feedback loops are not appreciated.
2: Mind Your Manners.
Do you hear somebody else talking? If yes, do not interrupt them! We’d love to
hear what you have to say, but unless it is an emergency, you can wait a
moment or two to speak.
3: Clear Coms.
If you are playing a game and need to discuss options or tactics, do so in the
gaming section of the server. If you are playing one of our branch games,
a room for you already exists below, so please use it. If not, create a subchannel
under Game Rooms. The General Chats are for conversation, not tactics.
4: Virgin Eyes.
Your avatar must remain clean and follow all other rules of the Guard,
even if you are in an 18+ channel. Anybody can view your avatar from any room,
and so there is no filter for minors or guests. Suggestive images walk a fine line
but are allowed, explicit ones are not. In general, so long as genitalia is not shown,
it can (not will) be allowed… however, if there is nothing else it could be than
a sexual act, even an otherwise clean image will be removed. As a general rule,
if you would not see your image on a movie poster, do not use it here.
Even R-rated movies omit profanity from their advertisements, you should too.
If a member of the leadership team deems your actions or avatar have violated these rules, they have. Do not argue with the them. Disputes can be taken to Kaputnik or Stormy for final arbitration.
Participation within the EQRG, either in-game, via the website or through one of our social platforms (TS, Discord, etc) is not a right. Conversely, the leadership team does reserve the right to take action against anyone proven to be a nuisance or willfully disruptive to the enjoyment of others.
