Queensland Resistance Slack Community

Terms of service

The use of the Queensland Resistances Slack community is subject to agreement of the following Terms of Service.

Purpose of Slack

Slack is primarily to be used for Ingress related events. To ensure that important messages are not missed, please minimise keep private, non-ingress related communications or use outside methods.

Community Values

Teamwork

The Resistance is a team and should function as one. Do not deliberately engage in actions for the specific purpose of disadvantaging the faction as a whole or individual players. Team play is encouraged - e.g. upgrading portals, applying mods etc are all good for your fellow smurfs - go hard!

Integrity

Members must follow the general Ingress Terms of Service including refraining from behaviour designed to get an unfair advantage over other players of either faction. This includes, but is not limited to, multi-accounts and spoofing.  Cheating will be reported and you will be excluded from the Slack community.

If you believe that another agent from either faction is cheating, report it to Niantic through the normal reporting form. Avoid making allegations in public channels.  If you wish to inform an admin please do so via private message.

Fun

We all play ingress because we enjoy it.  Respect others’ rights to play in the way they find fun even if it differs from your own approach. Use slack to encourage, plan and laugh.  Do not use it as a public dirty laundry airing zone, nor your personal soap box.  

Community Rules

Harassment

Treat all players with respect in Slack, on comms and in person. Harassment will not be tolerated for any reason.  If you have issues with another agent, address it directly with them in a Private Message.  Admins will suspend accounts if they believe Slack is being used to harass or defame other agents either in public chat or in private messages.   If you believe you have been subject to harassment in slack, please report it to an admin via private message.

To ensure your account is not inadvertently suspended,  you are encouraged to discuss personal issues with other agents privately, either using Private Messages in Slack or Hangouts or whatever other medium is appropriate.

Sharing Intel

Ensure you do not share intel with frogs either overtly or using covert messages.  This includes references to specific attack plans, sharing people’s guardians, intel on farm plans, players handicaps, gear issues, etc. If you’re a green spy we will find out and kick you out.
