With our amazing community growing, we’ve been working on a set of rules to help our community keep on being great – and become even greater!
Check the result of our work below – ITT Berlin Club’s Code of Conduct.
These rules are also going to be a foundation for the rules we will be using in the future physical space of ITT Berlin Club.
IT’S ALL ABOUT TABLETOP
Most important rule of all: The aim is to have a good time playing tabletop games.
The club must remain a tabletop focused environment. The rest of the world should stay outside of it.
RESPECT EACH OTHER
All members are deserving of equal respect, built on good faith and a positive attitude.
Have a mentality of growth: will what I do or say help the club and its people grow?
This hobby is for everyone. Aim to be excellent to each other, do nothing to others you wouldn’t want to be done to you.
COMMUNICATE WELL AND LOT’S
No one can read minds: take great care to express yourself and listen to others as much as possible.
We are diverse, be attentive to our differences.
Remember that communication is a process of trial and error, everyone makes mistakes or may speak out of turn. Understanding should come first before reaction.
BE A GOOD HOST/ GUEST
The club and all its instances, online and offline, are our shared hobbies home, treat those places with respect, because they are yours.
If we have guests, treat them well. If you are a guest yourself, be a good ambassador of our club.
BE FAIR, ENCOURAGE FUN
Play in such a way that your opponent would like to play again. As this is a good sign your game was enjoyable, win or lose.
We foster all kinds of play, from casual to competitive, each has its own ruleset and each should be treated fairly without prejudice, just join and have fun.
GET INVOLVED / GET OWNERSHIP
The club is yours: take ownership and get involved. Your contributions are what keep it alive, and you can decide what it will develop into.
Be it online or at the tabletop: follow our call to action, volunteer to help set up the tables at the next tournament or post your latest painted mini. Participating is how we thrive and grow.
If you want to lead among us, take ownership of a supporting role within the club, the path to the council is open to all.
IN CASE OF PROBLEMS
We want to have an environment where people feel welcome and safe. Bad, destructive influences, will be filtered out.
Everyone makes mistakes. Some are honest and to be forgiven, some are not and will not be tolerated.
Rules exist both to prevent members from disturbing balance and also to protect them. If there is any issue, contact the council or the moderators for arbitration.
