Post subject:  Communications requirement update

Hi, folks! A while back, we posted about some rules related to communication -- how much player-members need to keep in touch with the group, and what happens if someone falls out of touch. That post can be found here:

viewtopic.php?p=43133#p43133

(It's also in the rules section on the Wiki.)

We have an update for this rule, that is based on a situation that we are dealing with at the moment:


Members are expected to be reachable through email, including by receiving notification of PMs sent through the forum system. Our expectation is that people usually have multiple means of sending an electronic message, and that if a member is aware of an email address having to be disconnected, they should try to notify the group in some way, however briefly, of what their new contact method will be.

If a member's email is bouncing for multiple people on the council, and if the member gave no back-up means of communication, and has not logged into the mb in over 2 weeks (to receive PMs), the council may make the decision to deactivate the member for non-communication within a period of the next 2 weeks.

We do sympathize with the fact that a real-life crisis can cause a fandom obligation like this to drop very low on the priority list. We would hate to add to anyone's stress levels at such a time, by booting them from the group.

But if we have no idea why a member has disappeared, and we have no practical means to find or contact that member, we also feel that we can't make the group remain in limbo for an extended period.

If a member can't drop a quick email to someone in the group to update us, and can't log into the mb in over a month, we will regretfully have to move to deactivate.



If you have any questions or concerns, do feel free to ask.
