Roleplay Rights

Staff Intervention in Roleplay Disputes
It is important to note before reading below that RpNation Staff do not typically get involved in roleplay disputes between members. Outside of rule breaking, RpNation Staff only get involved in a dispute if the Roleplay Creator petitions the Staff for assistance with their roleplay. In those cases, the RpNation Staff expect the Roleplay Creator to have taken reasonable steps to resolve any disputes before requesting assistance.

RpNation Staff will NOT get involved in a roleplay dispute on behalf of players unless the Roleplay Creator is violating RpNation Site Rules. If you have an issue with your roleplay creator, you as a player have options, including leaving the roleplay or making your own roleplay on RpNation. Complaints of stolen characters or other forms of plagiarism will be investigated by the RpNation Staff if appropriately reported.

Roleplay Creator Rights
Roleplay Creators have certain rights over their roleplays created on RpNation or web spaces provided by RpNation. These rights are not necessarily absolute and can be altered or changed depending on a Roleplay Creator's behavior. If a dispute over a roleplay arises, the Roleplay Creator will be held in higher authority than a roleplay's participants by RpNation staff members. All Roleplay Creator's rights are listed below:
  • Roleplay Creators are the authority over their roleplays, not their players.
  • Roleplay Creators are the owners of their roleplays.
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to add their own rules to their roleplay (as long as such rules do not contradict or abridge RpN Site Rules or Policies).
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to determine what content is allowed in their roleplay (as long as such content does not break RpN Site Rules or Policies).
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to remove or reject any player from their roleplay.
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to prohibit or edit any action that occurs within their roleplay.
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to make decisions about their roleplay’s setting or lore and can even declare any content as "non-canon" for their roleplay.
  • Roleplay Creators can moderate and edit any content posted in their roleplay.
  • Roleplay Creators can delete posts within their roleplays.
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to place posting requirements or restrictions onto their roleplay.
  • Roleplay Creators do not have to notify their players of changes to their roleplay.
  • Roleplay Creators have the right to petition to the Staff to have their rules or wishes enforced (if their attempts to resolve issues directly with their players are unsuccessful).

Character Ownership
Roleplaying games are collaborative ventures. While a Roleplay Creator owns the content associated with their roleplay (as long as such content is not plagiarized or copyrighted), specific entries (such as a player's characters) submitted to that roleplay are considered the property and ownership of that individual poster.

RpNation Hosting Rights

RpNation is a private entity and has the right to control what content and materials are hosted on RpNation and web spaces provided by RpNation. The rights below are bestowed to RpNation staff members. These hosting rights supersede any other rights given to any roleplay creators, players, or users on RpNation. These rights do not apply to RpNation staff members acting as either a player or a Roleplay Creator within a roleplay dispute. The hosting rights are listed below:
  • RpNation is the authority over all content posted on RpNation and web spaces provided by RpNation.
