Things to Keep in Mind
Many club members probably do not realize that there is a set of general club etiquette that should be obeyed in this club as well as others. We have previously received complaints of members (names will not be listed) which have called for the addition of this journal.
Following is a list of club etiquette that should be followed when submitting, commenting, critiquing, and sending notes, etc.
Whatever you do, do NOT degrade anyone nor anyone's art. If they ask for critique, then give them critique - however, keep in mind...
Critique is not: "I like the concept but its badly done."
Critique is: "I like the concept that has been used here, but next time you might want to try to use a different texture or color, make more stars, try a different landscape... etc."
Critique will help an artist get better, not make them feel worse.
Be polite. This is a pretty self-explanatory guideline. Don't embarrass yourself by not following it.
Rude sarcasm will not be tolerated. It is hard enough to detect when someone is being sarcastic online because no tone of voice is heard. So be especially cautious when you're being rude and using sarcasm.
Just don't. Simple enough.
Use your common sense. If something you're thinking of isn't on this list, that doesn't make it okay to do. And if someone thinks of something that should be added to this list, let us know.
if you are a victim of any of the above behavior, let #Space-Club
know. Send #Space-Club
and we will deal with the situation best as possible. Our goal is to have a beneficial community, not a degrading one.Anyone
who dismisses the above as childish crap and refuses to obey will receive punishment. You will get a warning and then be released from the club if you continue to ignore our club etiquette.
The club would like to personally apologize to those who have already received and witnessed the childish behavior of some of our club members. Again, please let us know who needs to be taken care of.
