Cosmic Event Terms of Service

To access forumotion's own TOS, please see http://www.forumotion.com/terms-of-service.

Cosmic Event RP Terms of Service


Terms and Definitions:

This document refers to all donating users of Cosmic Event RP and its related services (from here on referred to as 'you', 'your', etc), your activities, and your presence on both the Cosmic Event RP forum (from now on referred to as 'the forums') hosted by Forumotion.com, and the Garry's Mod (hereon referred to as 'Gmod') HL2RP server also known as Cosmic Event RP (from now on referred to 'the server').

Members of staff, individual users brought together in a team to govern and organize the forums, the server, and its users, will be referred to as 'staff' from here on out. These staff members are chosen by authority of the founding users known as "The Bloody Advocate" and "Soap" as they are known on the forums (collectively referred to as 'owners' from here on out) and "Cody", the funding user that provides payments to keep the server running. Fellow staff members also have some input as to who is chosen to become staff. The owners are not liable for any actions taken by staff members or users; the owners and funding user are only liable for their own individual actions. Likewise, staff members in general are not liable for the actions taken by users or fellow staff members. Each user is liable for their own actions only. Staff members are also counted as users.

While on the forums and on the server, there is a distinction made between in-character actions (fictional events and/or responses between a user's fictional character described for the sake of building a collaborative story, referred to as 'IC' from here on out) and out-of-character actions (non-fictional events and/or responses that occur between users, referred to from now on as 'OOC'); these terms are used to describe two different facets of roleplay (from here on out referred to as 'rp'), which is the organization of IC behaviors to write a collaborative story used on the forums and the server.

'Fading to black' is a term used to describe the skipping of a certain action and leaving the details to imagination, and can be used for any content. Cosmic Event RP, the servers and the forums, and the staff, consider 'fading to black' to be related primarily to sexual encounters (see subject 2, I-V).

For the majority of the following, the word 'attempt' will be used to describe both an attempt to perform an act, as well as the successful performance of said act. Both the act of, and the act of attempting to, breach any of these terms will not be tolerated and will be met with discipline as quickly as humanly possible.

This document is true for all donating users, as in order to donate, users must read and agree to the TOS.

If you lie about your age, you and your guardians cannot seek legal action against Cosmic Event RP or its services or staff for your own actions in accessing these services in breach of the terms of service.


For further information about Cosmic Event RP rules and acceptable conduct, please see the general rules (link).

To agree to these terms, users that wish to donate must post their acceptance to this thread. Once they have done so, deletion of their post will not negate their agreement. By donating, you have bound yourself to these terms of service.
