VICTORIA ACADEMY RULES FOR ALL MEMBERS
1) ALL ROLE PLAY IS TO BE CONSENSUAL
All our role-play is based on SSC (Safe, Sane and Consensual) rules. You do not have to role-play any scene that is uncomfortable for you or with any person you do not feel comfortable with.If there is a problem with the rp or you do not wish to role-play with an individual IM the person concerned.DO NOT spoil the rp for others involved by making a scene or comments in open chat.Any issues that arise from rp are to be dealt with by discussing with the person concerned in IM.
If, however, you feel that an individual has broken SSC rules or pressured you to take part in an rp then copy text to a notecard and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By joining Victoria you agree with Victoria Rules, mentioned in these documents and in others (you can find them in the orientation room). Do not (( )) because you don't feel like something, it will ruin immersivity for others. At all times, on SIM grounds (and outside for VA Boarders), you are what your ROLE says you are and what you signed in for.
2) SEXUAL RP
Explicit and blunt graphical sexual activity between members (whether they be student or teacher) is not appropriate if you wish to indulge in strong sexual RP then please take it to an appropriate place. Also be aware that consent to spanking is not consent to sex.Anyone abusing this will be BANNED.
2) THIRD PARTY CONSENT IN PUBLIC AREAS
If you play something in a public area, not in a private room, everyone that passes by should consent to your play. So, in public areas, 3rd party consent is required to what you're doing.
In a private room, there is no need for 3rd party consent, as there should be no 3rd party. Cam-ing in a room and reporting "I don't agree with what they are doing" is not accepted, as it's none of your business. Simply, don't look.
In Public Spaces, except punishment (where realism can be diluted as part of the fantasy) school realism should be kept at all times.
We respect and tolerate everyone's fantasy, as long as all play is SSC.
PUBLIC SPACE is defined, as IRL: Any space that is open space, visible and audible. A closed room, hidden in the forest behind the trees, the basement etc are not public spaces.
3) NO DRAMA
Victoria Academy is a no drama area.Please do not bring it here.That includes bad mouthing other groups or individuals.
If you have a problem with other groups take it up with them.Please keep personal disputes out of Victoria Academy.Please do not bring real time drama into Victoria Academy.
4) DO NOT HARRASS MANAGEMENT
The management of Victoria Academy work hard for every ones enjoyment.Please respect their hard work.Management's word is final in any dispute but they are not here to resolve every issue for you. You are adults, try to work out issues between yourselves.Managers are here to have fun too and deserve private time and time to join in the role-play.They do not need or want constant IMs.You may think you are the only one in their IM box... this is rarely true and spoils the SIM for them.If a problem is not really urgent, please send a notecard and they will get back to you.
5) SCHOOL IMAGE
Any role play or activity that can change or affect the school image in a major way, especially a negative one, should be approved by management. Send a request to any of the management members and it will be discussed among them.
It includes anything you might do in school or outside school as long as any Victoria Academy element is involved (mentioning its name, showing you are a student or teacher through uniform or tag, bringing it to your school friends etc).
e.g. Student or staff jailed, blackmailed, involved in illicit activities and such, personality issues that can conflict with Victoria Academy principles and ideas etc.
Not compliance with this rule will result in disciplinary sanctions.
Any role play or activity that can be considered major for school (e.g. burning the dorm), especially negatively impacting the school activity, must also be approved by sim management.
VICTORIA ACADEMY RULES FOR TEACHERS
1) HOUSE RULES PREVAIL.
If you have a son/daughter/submissive attending the school we accept you might have rules set for them, but they should be in line with our house rules.Limits will be considered at all times, however we must insist our rules be followed and not conflicted. By allowing them to join the school, you agree to the rules set by the school.
2) ALL TEACHERS MUST APPLY
If you want to be considered to teach at Victoria Academy, please send in an application. You can find the application form at the reception area in the school building. You will be contacted for an interview as soon as possible. Until approved by Victoria Academy, please do not rp the teacher role.
3) RESPECT TO BE SHOWN TO ALL PLAYERS
Teachers will respect student's limits at all times. If you are unsure then please ask in IM before engaging in role-play with individuals.Whilst we expect students to let teachers know their limits having filled a limits form, it is better to be safe than sorry.Especially if you don't know someone well, IM that person and discuss the limits and check if what you are doing is ok with her/him.
The assumption is made that by attending your class or engaging in an activity with you at the academy the student is consenting to rp with you.This includes punishments such as spankings, caning, detentions, essays, lines etc.However please be sure that you consider each students limits.
Personal insults, bullying and any form of intimidation will not be tolerated.However we accept that some rp may include insults but please be sure the person/people involved are happy for that to happen and that is be appropriate to school setting.IE, calling a student stupid may be acceptable to one but offensive to another.
Spanking/caning is part of school life for rule breaking but ALL such activity here is consensual. In case you opt out, you will be punished through other non-corporal means. This does not mean a student can ‘opt out’ of punishment - simply that if girls are unhappy at being dealt with by a male teacher or prefect and vice versa for boys arrangements can be made to have punishment administered by the alternative gender.
4) PARTICIPATION IN CLASSES
Whilst we encourage teachers to teach a class, we accept that due to rl limitations etc. this isn't always possible. This school is based on group rp as well as individual rp.If you cannot commit to a set class, you can do ad hoc classes, or engage in other forms of rp, for example as a gym instructor or we can find a staff role for you. Teachers who just come in to spank someone and leave are not what we are looking for and they will be asked to leave if it becomes clear that is what you are doing.
Victoria Academy is not a hunting ground for finding new subs, or sex partners. If that is what you use the sim for, you will be asked to leave.
5) RELATIONSHIP WITH SUBMISSIVE ETC.
If you are teaching a class or rp-ing with someone, and your submissive signs on, please do not abandon ship to rp with said submissive. Just like rl, they sometimes have to wait for someone to get off work.
We do not allow students to hide behind collars. We ask the teachers to also rp with everyone, unless you have a reason to want to avoid a person.If your submissive can't handle you rp-ing with others, maybe it's not a good idea to join until she/he can cope.
6) RULES FOR INDIVIDUAL CLASSES AND TEACHERS
These rules are general rules; you can set your classroom rules yourself. When setting rules, make sure they are realistic for a school setting and that the students know the rules either by posting these in a group notice or explaining at beginning of class to new students.This will also give our students opportunity to stay away from a class they feel may push their limits too far and save you hassle later.
We recommend your class limits to be aligned with the general school limits. It is not desirable for students to avoid any class, because of their limits.
VICTORIA ACADEMY RULES FOR STUDENTS
If you want to be a student at Victoria you need to have reasonable English knowledge (no translators) and Basic SL skills (dressing, using a poseball, opening a box etc. ). You need to be an adult human. No Child/teen AV's.
1) HOUSE RULES PREVAIL.
Whilst we accept individuals may have rules set by parents, dominants etc.house rules take priority. Your limits will be considered at all times, but we must insist our rules be followed.If you have a dominant outside the school setting rules and conditions please ensure they have read our rules and agree your role-play here.We will not hear complaints from outside influences if you have not done so. The onus is on the student to ensure attendance is allowed and once on school grounds or in uniform with student/prefect tag it will be assumed by faculty you have permission to role-play.
If you have certain limitations, make sure the school and the teacher you are rp-ing with knows in advance you have that limit, so they can find a way to work around it. However, if any form of punishment (corporal or non-corporal) is not allowed for bad behaviour you may be asked to leave the class.It is unfair of a student to misbehave then hide behind collars or other dominants.
Spanking/caning is part of school life for rule breaking but ALL such activity here is consensual. In case you opt out, you will be punished through other non-corporal means.
This does not mean you can ‘opt out’ of punishment - simply that if girls are unhappy at being dealt with by a male teacher or prefect and vice versa for boys arrangements can be made to have punishment administered by the alternative gender.
2) LINDEN TOS TO BE OBSERVED AT ALL TIMES
All terms of service are to be adhered t.. ie: we are a role play school for adults.We will not tolerate any form of age play. All Students MUST be real life over 18 and role-play over 18.We do not allow child avs anywhere on the SIM
3) RESPECT TO BE SHOWN TO ALL PLAYERS
Students will respect the teacher's authority at all times.Teachers will respect student's limits at all times. If you are unsure then please ask in IM before engaging in role-play with individuals.Teasing, nicknames, arguing, being cheeky etc are all part of RP but ensure all concerned are happy and aware of what you are doing.Personal insults, bullying and any form of intimidation will not be tolerated.
4) STUDENTS PARTICIPATION IN CLASSES
Students are required to join in class activities.This school is based on group rp as well as individual rp.We accept due to time zones etc this is not always possible but students who just come in, brat a teacher, get spanked and leave is not what we are looking for and they will be asked to leave if it becomes clear that is what you are doing.
If we notice that you are on-line but absent from school classes and events on a regular basis, you will be demoted from Student.
5) DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TOP FROM BOTTOM
We pick our teachers carefully and ensure their rp is a good quality that suits Victoria Academy, both in group and individual rp.
Manipulating them to take over the rp or excessive bratting to control the scene will not be tolerated.Consider others when role-playing . What may be fun to you may be annoying to others.Individuals dominating rp for their own pleasure without consideration to others will find themselves suspended.Repeats of this behaviour after warning will result in a ban.
We can only be responsible for the behaviour of our own school staff and we pick them very carefully.They will be wearing an official Victoria Academy Teacher and be members of "Victoria Teachers and Staff" group.We discourage and stop visitors from assuming a teacher/dominant role although we know they may try when management are not available.We cannot guarantee or be held responsible for their behaviour.Therefore, rp with a teacher not approved by us is at your own risk.You, the student, are responsible for ensuring firstly you are allowed to rp with said person, and secondly for negotiating with said person what the limits are.
6) CHECK RULES FOR INDIVIDUAL CLASSES AND TEACHERS
All teachers are different and varietyis part of the fun of Victoria Academy.Therefore do not expect all teachers rules for their classes to be the same.Each teacher will set rules for their own classes based on the rules above and observing SSC guidelines.If you are not willing to abide by the rules of the individual teacher do not attend that class. Do not hang within chat range of a class you are not attending - this spoils rp for those in the class.
There are punishments and funishments.
As long as it's not against your limits, you shouldn't refuse any.
You can't expect to brat and brat and get spanked each time because you like that. You can't expect to constantly misbehave and your punishment never elevating from a spanking.
As opposed to funishments, punishments are meant to create a bit of discomfort, bore you, make you do repetitive things. They are not meant to be enjoyed, they are meant to be avoided and they differ from person to person.
ALL DECISIONS OF MANAGEMENT ARE FINAL AND NOT UP FOR DEBATE.
