The following is strictly prohibited and may result in an instant, permanent ban, often without a warning. All the following rules also apply to in-call activity:
No conversations that do not belong in a study server. Keep conversations relevant and study-related in study chats (non-study chats like #general, #chill-chat excluded).
All the following rules also apply for DM's (private messages) with server members. If they report you breaking a rule, you will be permanently banned from the server.
Study calls are only meant for studying/productive tasks/work – no other activities are allowed in study calls. You ought to leave a study call when you are not studying/not doing any study-related activities/not doing productive work.
Who can use Study Together? We try to make Study Together available to everyone, but you cannot use Study Together if you are under 13 years old or under the minimum age of digital consent in your country (see rule 3).
Maintain a positive general atmosphere in the chats. Negative vibes/thoughts can go to #venting-channel; not in the general chats
English only in chat, except for the following channels: #chill-chat; #day-goals; #session-goals, #long-term-goals and all private channel chats. In those channels chatting in a foreign language is allowed.
#session-goals are for real session goals only. "Same", "Continue", 1-character goals such as 'p' or 's' may not be deemed as session goals. An example of a good session goal is: "Do question 4, 6, 7 + start reading chapter 5".
No discriminatory jokes and language, hate speech (which calls out a group by their age, race, gender), etc.
No displaying offensive, derogatory, or sexually explicit content.
No displaying content that does not belong in a study server.
No verbal abuse, insults, or threats towards others.
No Sharing private information (in any form) of others without their permission
Value the privacy of others in the server. Do not record the screen, capture screenshots or click pictures using external devices of other users while you are in a study session.
Do not post, upload, share or stream content that displays firearms, firearm accessories, ammunition, or explosive weapons. We do not allow the depiction, discussion, promotion of firearms.
No sharing of surveys. We recommend you posting them in any of the servers in #homework-help.
No phishing of private information.
Study calls are only meant for studying/productive work. 'Farming' study calls, or showing non-realistic study statistics may lead to a permanent leaderboard exclusion.
No pornographic content.
No publishing of any form of personal information (including real names, photo's, addresses, emails, passwords, bank account and credit card information, etc.)
No personal attacks
No creeping in-server or in-DM's. This is a study server, not a dating website.

No political discussion
Agree to disagree
