The Magical Library Forum Code of Conduct
The Magical Library forums is a space for our members to discuss their favorite books, book recommendations, reading tips and tricks, additional forum topics and to provide us with feedback.
To do this successfully, we ask that all members of the forums follow a set of guidelines referred to as The Magical Library Forum Code of Conduct (CoC).
Please remember that your fellow members should always be treated with respect, without exception. This does not mean everyone will always agree and that is okay. The Magical Library is founded on the concept of inclusion and diversity and that everyone is entitled to their opinion as long as it is shared in a respectful way.
Discrimination and Slurs based on Race, Ethnicity, Sexuality, Gender or Gender Identity
We want the The Magical Library forums to be a welcoming place for everyone, this means that discriminatory slurs both clear and masked in words or images are not appropriate and are prohibited.
Members of our forums should feel safe to express their thoughts and opinions about and to do so without fear or intimidation. To this end, any threat of physical harm toward another forum user will not be tolerated.
Harassing or Defamatory Content
For the same reason, harassing, bullying or defamatory content will also not be tolerated. Throwing around insults or targeting individuals or groups with malice has a negative effect on everyone’s experience. Harassment takes many forms, if forum administrators believe that there is an intent to bully other forum users or make them feel uncomfortable in this environment, action will be taken.
Obscene / Vulgar or Inappropriate Language and/or Images
Some people are comfortable with colorful language and images while others are not. We ask that our forum members remember to treat each other with courtesy and respect. Please keep in mind that not everyone has the same expectations when it comes to what is acceptable.
Spamming, Trolling, or Topic Bumping
These forums exist as a resource for The Magical Library community to discuss literature based topics. Please refrain from using the forums to promote businesses or events.
Respecting the forum environment.
Circumventing a Suspension / Ban
To maintain the environment of the forums, it’s absolutely necessary that the moderators can do their jobs effectively. To facilitate this, any discussion of disciplinary action or moderation is not allowed, and circumventing suspensions by posting on another account or having another user post on your behalf is prohibited.
In addition, abusing the report feature makes it more difficult for moderators to maintain the environment of the forums and as such will result in disciplinary action.
