Playtesters - Code of Conduct

 — Last updated: 9th of March, 2015

Members of the playtesting domain are required to agree to this code of conduct and to uphold it to their best abilities. Any violation of this code should be reported to the administration of the playtesting domain.

Being a playtester, like being a creator, is a responsibility and not a right. Part of being a playtester is being trustworthy enough that creators feel confident that you will not violate the confidentiality of the process. If you feel you cannot as a playtester accept the code of conduct here then you should bring your concerns to the attention of the administration of the playtesting domain.

Like all rules on Discworld, the important aspect here is the spirit and not the letter. Basically if you feel the only way your actions are justifiable is through some loophole or radical interpretation of this code of conduct then you will still be judged to have violated the code of conduct.

Violation of this code can be grounds for dismissal from the playtesting domain and depending on the violation may result in further punishment

Creator code of conduct

Creators are expected to adhere to this code of conduct when their projects are undergoing playtesting. If a playtester feels that they have not been treated with the respect they deserve, then they should discuss it with the creator in question in the first place. If there is no satisfactory resolution after that, then it should be discussed with the creator's domain lord.
