Mission Statement/Code Of Conduct

This server has been established as a 'safe haven' for furs who have an interest in hypnosis and trancing. While we are not here to police what you do outside of this server, if we receive complaints of abuse, forced trance, unlawful behavior, etc. from one member about another even if that happens outside of TranceFurs, we will follow up and take appropriate action to maintain the safety of the community. This includes a formal warning up to and including being banned.

If the situation continues after removal from the server, we will help and advise affected parties with the appropriate course of legal action that may be available to them in their country of residence. There are many laws in relation to harassment in most countries, so please think twice about being stupid or harassing a fellow server user.

Thank you for taking to time to read the rules. You will find that following these simple rules will make your stay much more enjoyable and will make sure that you don't end up inadvertently banned from the server by doing something that could have been avoided.

The TranceFurs Staff holds sole responsibility for allowing access. The following are a list of offenses that could get you banned. Keep in mind that moderators can reprimand or remove access from anyone for ANY REASON and their decision may be upheld.

1. Be nice and respectful

This is a public-access server, and as such, people should be respectful of others. If you have an issue, there are always ops and mods around to help you out. Please don't take matters into your own paws.

2. Age of Consent

Please remember that is a mature server, and as such may contain material that is inappropriate for minors to view or read. The age of consent in a lot of countries is 18, but that can vary from place to place. Please be aware that we will actively police this policy, and if we find that it has been breached the relevant authorities will be notified and the persons involved will be k-lined.

We take personal safety very seriously. if you feel that someone is in breach of this rule, please let an admin know so that the matter can be promptly investigated.

3. Trance and Consent

Please remember even though TranceFurs is a hypnosis-based community, not everyone that visits the server is interested in being hypnotised. Please respect a user's right to not want to be hypnotised, as you may fall in breach of the code of conduct for this server. If someone is continually attempting to hypnotise you and you have clearly expressed that you are not interested, please reach out to an op or admin.

Furthermore, a user consenting to being hypnotised by another user does not automatically grant the hypnotist consent to do anything to or with that person. Remember this is a safe place, and we ask that you have good, open discussions with each other over what you do and don't feel comfortable with.

Remember the best rule of thumb here: “If you don’t know or are unsure... ASK ASK ASK! Clarify boundaries and establish rules. If you are going into territory that might be risky for you but you would still like to explore, fill in a third party so that they can monitor you for a bit. Safety is key.

This rule is taken very seriously. Depending on the circumstances and severity, not following this rule could result in anything from a formal warning to a first-time ban. This rule is in place between interactions between two regular members outside of the channel, as we hope to provide a safe community. All reports will be investigated to the best of our ability.

4. Spam will not send you e-mails nor advertising in any form, and spaming adverts in main channels will also not be tolerated. If a user is found in breach of this rule, they may find themselves temporarily suspended from the server. Please don't spam users with advertising. Repeated instances of failure to adhere to this may result in being banned.

5. Bots

We do not mind the use of bots on the server; however, we ask that you speak to an admin before connecting a bot to the servers. We will just need a little detail on what it will be used for, as can also provide a bot for a lot of your needs.
