Lately, we’ve been reviewing how our community uses the forums and how people communicate:
with each other, about our products, and about our company.

The forums are a space of engagement where we see a lot of great communication occurring
between fans and, at times, we also see amazingly creative projects that excite us. There are,
however, abusive practices that have been allowed to occur without oversight and with detriment
to the community and to our brand.

We want to remind all users that we offer these forums as a venue for civil engagement amongst
fans and also between Ninja Division/Soda Pop Miniatures and the wider community represented
on these forums. These forums are a space where you are welcome to share your opinions and
thoughts, but always in a respectful and constructive manner.

To ensure better communication practices between all parties represented on these forums and to
foster a more inclusive and collegial community, we have amended the policies for using these
forums. These new policies will appear at the top of each forum as a “Sticky/Announcement,” as
reminder of the terms of use of our forums. You and anyone who uses these forums are expected
to read them and abide by them, or else may lose your privilege to post and engage with the
community here.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns about the changes in forum policies, please
message ND_nekodachi or ND_Sean or email and we will address it.

Forum Policies
Below are the basic rules you will are required to follow to post on Soda Pop Miniatures forums
and maintain an account. Read them fully, as you will be expected to abide by them whether you
have read them or not.

Be Polite
-We expect all who use our forms to be courteous of one another and to conduct themselves with
good manners. We also expect all to respect our company and brands, as well as our employees.

-You are encouraged to share your thoughts about our products and our company, but we ask that
you do so in a respectful manner where you provide constructive criticism aimed at helping us and
others understand your underlying concerns and issues.

-We also ask that you conduct yourselves with a sense of community and order. When posting,
please stay on topic and please refrain from attacking one another. Please also be clear in
expressing your ideas and share them in a manner that invites discussion, rather than attempts to
incite dissent and vitriol.

-Behaviors such as ranting, flaming, meme-blasting will not be tolerated.

-Posting content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory,
vulgar, obscene, pornographic, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, sexist, racist, homophobic,
ableist, or otherwise objectionable in language and in images that are deliberately intended to
shame or harm another will not be tolerated.

-Posts that are unconstructive and wholly negative about our products, policies, partners, and
individuals we represent will not be tolerated.

-Lastly, spam, advertisements, and other such solicitations are expressly forbidden.

Use Proper Grammar
-All posts are must use correct punctuation, capitalization, and basic syntax to be inclusive of
others and foster community.

-"Leet" speak, text abbreviations, jargon, gibberish, and other forms of exclusionary language and
text-based practices are not allowed.

We’re not asking you to be perfect in what you author; we’re asking you to consider the clarity of
your message for the sake of the community we foster on the forums.

Mind the Moderators
-Posting on the forums is a privilege, not a right. If a moderator alters a post, requests that you
alter a post, or asks you to refrain from behavior(s) unbefitting of the community fostered on the
forum, please evaluate the request and comply.

-You are always welcome to ask questions, voice concerns, and/or contact a moderator for
clarification for any actions/requests.

-Please also bear in mind that Ninja Division employees who are also moderators have additional
job duties and may not be able to respond to every question, request, or concern. Ninja Division
employee moderators will, of course, check in on the forums and do their best to respond as
available and depending on the severity of the question, request, or concern.

Stay On Topic
-The purpose of our forum is to discuss all things related to Ninja Division, Soda Pop Miniatures,
our partners, our products, and any events or other related activities we engage in as a company
and as a community. Discussions related to politics, religion, other companies, other games, and
the like are considered off topic and are forbidden on our forum.

-When posting an original thread, please bear this in mind. Similarly, when posting a response to
an original thread, please stay focused on the original topic posted. If a thread strays from its
original intent, moderators reserve the right to delete posts or even lock the thread entirely.

We will heavily monitor the forums for any posts that violate the terms outlined herein.

Posts that violate these terms may be edited, locked, or deleted.

Users who violate the terms will be warned and, if necessary, may also be banned without warning.

Thanks Neko. I agree with everything said here. Especially if we are trying to bring new players here, we want to make sure to provide a friendly and positive environment for people to post in. I'm hoping it will stick.
