The United Stellar Navy is the pinnacle of a modern spacefaring civilization. As such, there is no room for such repressive and exclusionary language of historical Earth societies, such as sexism, misogyny, homophobia, racism, nationalism, ageism, and ableism.
Basically, that means our goals are to create and supported neutral standards and protocols; actively work to break patterns that contribute to inequalities; and help our community identify commonalities and foster interconnectedness.
To that end, we recognize the value of a diverse community, and encourage cross-cultural leadership. We speak out against exclusion of people from our community, and periodically examine our actions and behavior for improvement.
This means our games and gamers are pro-LGBTQ, pro-women, pro-minority. If you’re not a player who respects and observes this behavior, we’re probably not the right group for you. We encourage and welcome anyone who can abide by this commitment to equity and diversity.
It is the policy of the United Stellar Navy to help players adhere to this policy by first verbally reinforcing it, then removing the player from a game, then removing nonconforming players from the organization.
Players who use language or behavior that is harassing, demeaning, pejorative in nature, or engages in targeting based on sexism, misogyny, homophobia, racism, nationalism, ageism, or ableism, you will most likely be verbally reprimanded. If you speak or act towards another officer this way, you may be asked to leave the ship. If the behavior continues, your account at unitedstellarnavy.net will be deleted and you will no longer be welcomed to play here.
It is our firm intent to create a safe, inclusive place to play for our community. Now, let’s play some Artemis!
