OOC Consent/Confirmation

What is OOC Consent/Confirmation and what are some examples it can be implemented for?

Using OOC Consent for Ability Usage/Effects does not automatically mean an ability can/cannot happen or be used and does not always mean allowing or disallowing an ability.

What OOC Consent is used for is for when it comes to Ability Usage/Effects is mostly for clarification purposes such as but not limited to:

  • Seeing how an ability plays out

  • Confirming how lethal the ability will be

  • Confirming how the ability will affect the other person

  • Confirming how it can be resolved

  • Confirming if the ability can kill someone

  • Confirming how strong the effects can/will be

  • Confirming if something was avoided/declined correctly based on what was posted



What are some examples of of abilities that require OOC Consent?
Any ability that can effect another player whether directly or indirectly (Some examples but not limited to shapeshifting, Voice Mimicry, Illusions of other players etc) requires OOC Consent of that player before being able to be done.

 Please make sure that this is being worked out between players FIRST before reaching out to admin staff. If we ask if youve reached out to the player to discuss the issue, please do not be surprised if we ask you to reach out to them first if you have not. We should be able to communicate these things without having to immediately involve admin staff. If it is something extreme or youve attempted to try and work out with the player first then please by all means reach out to us so we can assist where we can.

OOC Limits

OCC Limits and how do we go about respecting them 

 

We take consent very seriously here on Sim however we take individual accountability/responsibility just as serious as well.

It is unfair to state someone is intentionally or purposely going against your consent or making you uncomfortable if you do not(And are not limited to):
 

 

  • Have a pick of your limits on your profile of what you are or are not comfortable with to help someone know as there are people that do check for that in someones profile (and is encouraged to check as well)

  • Do not state to the person what you are ok with or not ok with

  • Do not state to the person that the scene is making you uncomfortable/ goes against your limits

  • Do not state to the person that the scene is something you are not ok with participating/goes against your limits

  • Do not communicate so the person is aware that you are feeling uncomfortable or touching on something that goes against your limits

     

If you do not tell someone they will not know and that is unfair to hold them accountable for not being able to know ahead of time and essentially expecting the person to be psychic and just know when there is the same respect that the limit could of been stated and enforced to help avoid things. In the same respect/responsibility someone can ask is the same respect/responsibility that you can also advise if you were not asked. 
Please note that if you are in a situation where you did state your boundaries, did state your limits, enforced your limits and boundaries and they are being ignored after having done so, that is not the same thing and to please bring it to Admin Staffs attention  with screenshots Immediately.

 

It is every individual persons responsibility to make sure that the people they are interacting with are aware of their limits or bring awareness to their limits if a scene is going into a direction that they are not comfortable with. 
 

It is every individual persons responsibility to state what their limits are if they were not asked about their limits, especially if the scene is going into a direction that they are not comfortable 
 

When it comes to Dark RP/ DARK ERP it is is every individual persons responsibility to ask if someone is comfortable with said topics/actions taking place and also every individual persons responsibility to tell someone if they are uncomfortable with DARK RP or DARK ERP if not asked.

 

We are all adults on an ADULT sim, where ADULT TOPICS/SCENARIOS/SITUATIONS MAY HAPPEN.

 

Additionally, please be mindful of where you go on sim and what  races you approach. If you are going to a Gentlemans Club/Sex Shop expect to be around lewd/sexual characters and scenarios or topics. If you go to a dark alley/sus shady area, expect the potential of Dark RP. 

 

 If you go up to an Ethereal ( and no not all Ethereals are like this just an example), expect the possibility of a sexual/lewd/crass character and personality for example.

 This does not mean you HAVE to be ok with Dark RP etc just because you interact with said type of race or go to said type of location, it means that to the other person/people you are interacting with will be under the impression you are aware of these things potentially happening and IF YOU ARE NOT ok with certain things happening then please state so, this way the rp can make sure not to head that way and everyone can be on the same page.

 

Please make sure that  this is being worked out between players FIRST before reaching out to admin staff.  If we ask if youve reached out to the player to discuss the issue, please do not be surprised if we ask you to reach out to them first if you have not.
