Topic: Ghosts Of The Peer Board
Allright, in this thread i will try my best to keep you all up to date on official policies adopted by the Peer Review Board.
Current Board Members:
Zerth - Chairman of the Board
Ensignman - Co-Chair, Forum Leader
All Dev's have access to the Peer forum, and may, or not, vote at thier descretion.
All Senior Mods have access to the Peer Pannel Forum, but are not, strictly speaking members of the pannel(unless they are actually members of the pannel).
1.) Current Names
Example: Tony Blair of England
The names of current nations, major cities, and political figures will not be allowed, names of companies, coportaions and products are also no longer allowed(we see you beer of heineken). People, such as pop-culture icons, who are *real* persons are also not allowed. Essentially, any famous real-world person's name is out. If these are seen by the Board, they will be renamed immediatly.
2.) Double Names
Example: Jimmy of Jimmy, Arthur of Arthur's Castle
The first example is right out, and coded out. Essentially, if your planet name mimics a recognizable element of the ruler name( a single word, or 5 or more consecutive characters contained within a word), it will be changed.
3.) Drug Refernces
Example: Stoned of Cocaine
Illegal drug names, drug terms, pariphenalia(sp?) are right out. As to pharmacuticals, please try and avoid them.
4.) Human Body Parts - As planet names
Example: Captain Cool of Left Foot
They are allowed, but expect them to be reviewed closely, as in, if you choose to name yourself after part of the human body, your planet name will be put up for a vote infront of the Pannel.
5.) Website/Domain Names
Example: Jim of www.alliancewars.com
Verbs, Adverbs, or Adjectives as Planet/Ruler names
Example: Running of Yellow
These are out, we aren't saying you can't have an adjective in your name (such as Red Plague), but that you can't simply BE an adjective, adverb or verb.
Accounts found in violation of these rules will be re-named by the Peer Pannel. If you do not like the new name assigned to your ruler/planet(we use the same random name generator that ALL players have access too during sign-up) then mail 0:1 with (several) suggestions of new planet/ruler combinations.
Pain is the lesson,
Scars are your diploma.
