The test run of my avatar in this virtual community is a ”nasty” one due the big dose of nonconformity. The Western publisher of 9Dragons is Acclaim. I will refer at the entity as the ”official”. The official power is divide by Acclaim group form by Acclaim community manager ”TheHistorian”, 9Dragons community manager ”BluFlash”, game masters and players from community group in moderators team and VGM’s team ( a helping team for GM’s). On the other hand, my avatar belongs to the community of players, which is not yet mixt up in a legal form. The gamers community has leaders, gamers and stereotypes of alternative avatars of the ~officials~. The stereotypes enters in action when the approach-avoidance conflict can’t be slacked with the locked or delete of topics on forum or a chat bann in game.
The legal frame is form by TOS and the Rules of Conduct. The rules are very simple and not elaborate at all.The TOS is the common one with no personalization ( except the ads system ). This is my favourite reply from the rule section, post by TheHistorian :
“What about my Freedom of Speech?”
We are not stopping you from starting your own boards out there on the Internet (in fact we encourage it), to say whatever you want, but here the above just won’t be tolerated.
Joshua Fairfield would reply : “courts can draw on existing and familiar areas of common law to provide the private-property, dignitary, and personal protections these communities need according to the specific behavioural norms their creators and users have fostered. The common law method, being iterative, incremental, and experimental, is well suited to modifying these areas where needed. It allows for the more immediate resolution of problems while also being sufficiently flexible to permit rules to be expanded or contained as required.”
What about “officials Acclaim abuses” ?…that part is missing…
