Teams change. People leave, new members arrive. That’s pretty much everywhere the case, and Emerald Legacy is no exception. We will adjust some things how we want to operate and are also (and still) looking for new volunteers. Yet, we will continue to be the Emerald Legacy and will try to continue the game that we all love. Read on for more details!
The game and its survival, its continuation, heavily depends on its player base, the community. You, us. And thus, it is paramount to have a welcoming, fair, tolerant and kind community.
Therefore, we will introduce the Emerald Legacy Code of Conduct.
With this code of conduct, we want to ensure that each and everyone of you feels welcome at tournaments, in the Emerald Legacy community, play testing and even within the Emerald Legacy team itself. We want to offer a set of rules that everyone has to comply with, whilst also having a documented workflow how we will deal with violations of those rules. So if you feel you have experienced inappropriate or even unacceptable behaviour, contact us and we will take care of you and will try to solve the situation. This might include a temporary—or even permanent—server ban or an exclusion from an event (online as well as in-person). We hope that it doesn’t come to this but if it does, we want to be prepared. At the moment, you will only find my name (Hida Amoro) to get in touch with, but I will quickly find additional members of the Emerald Legacy that offer themselves as initial contact.
We hope that this step might even encourage some of you to join the Emerald Legacy, now that you know that we have that code of conduct and will not hesitate to use the measures defined in it.
Departures and new Arrivals
We lost several people over the last few weeks, including our head of E.D.I. They left for private reasons and because they gave too much for the project and neglected their personal lives. However, this leaves us with the need for new volunteers.
We need help in various departments (as you can see here), but first and foremost we need a new leader for E.D.I. So if you feel you’re the perfect person for that (and maybe feel spurred by the new code of conduct), please get in touch and apply!
If you have any other questions, feel free to get in touch with me or us at the Emerald Legacy.
