CaptainCon is dedicated to providing the best social tabletop gaming experiences for all attendees. Key to that is maintaining a safe, fun, welcoming, and accessible environment for all attendees. We do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, physical ability, or any of the other myriad wonderful ways that people are individuals and we require the same of all attendees, vendors, volunteers, staff, exhibitors, and guests of CaptainCon. By participating in this online community, you are agreeing to abide by the same code of conduct we expect at the in-person convention. The short version is - Don't be a jerk. The long version can be found on our website but we'll summarize it here as it applies to the online space:
Illegal drugs are prohibited – Seriously, we hate that we even have to spell this out, but you can't use this platform to sell or encourage the sale or use of illegal drugs of any kind.
Theft is prohibited – Yes, we’re a bunch of pirates, but theft is not tolerated at CaptainCon. You should not be using this platform for trading or selling anything and we'll certainly kick you out if we catch wind that you're abusing this community to scam other members.
Physical assault and threatening are prohibited – Violence against others at CaptainCon will not be tolerated. We value the health and safety of our attendees, vendors, and staff. This isn’t Fight Club! Threating violence against another person will not be tolerated.
Harassment is prohibited – Any form of harassment of others at CaptainCon based on their gender identity/expressions, race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical appearance, religion, or disability will not be tolerated. Harassment includes verbal abuse and offensive joking, unwanted sexual advances, teasing/jokes/innuendo of an unwanted sexual nature, and subjecting others to photos/mages/video/gestures of a sexual or otherwise unwanted nature. COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT to be inappropriate. Seriously, don’t be a creep.
Report Violations – We can’t be everywhere at once, so we rely on you to help us make the above rules work. If you see a violation of any of the rules or are a victim of violations of these rules, please report it right away.
Right of Refusal – CaptainCon and New England Privateers, LLC reserve the right to refuse admittance and sale to any individual due to past violations of the above rules or credible reports/documentation of violations of those policies at other conventions/events. We similarly reserve the right to refuse admittance to any vendor exhibitor for the same reason or because the products on sale/exhibit don’t fit with the spirit of the show or to prevent imbalance in our vendor mix at the show. This extends to removing people from this online community.
