Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Natural Born Killers. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Society Rules

    1. The following rules apply to all of the societies in the NBK Group. These rules are pretty basic but are very serious. As long as you are 18 years of age or older, capable of getting along with others, have some common sense, and are an upstanding person, you shouldn't have any problems.

      1.Never beg for money or items.

      2.Generally have an optimistic attitude and don't continuously whine or complain.

      3.Be respectful to society members and Leadership along with other people in the EU.

      4.Don't lie, cheat, or steal from anyone in the Entropia Universe.

      5.Conduct yourself in a way that will earn respect for you and for the N.B.K. Group.

      6.Report any misconduct to society leaders A.S.A.P.

      7.Don't post internal society related information on an open public forum.

      8.Never, ever criticize another NBK member in public.

      9.Don't create or spread rumours that could potentially damage the NBK or its members.

      10.Don't engage other members in a personal argument in the society chat or in the forums, move the debate to some type of private chat or private message.

      11.If you are unable to resolve a dispute, take the issue to a NBK General if you both can no longer coexist.

      12.Swearing is allowed in the society chat as long as its not every other word or directed towards another member in a demeaning, hostile, or confrontational way. We have members of all ages, nationalities, races, and both genders. You should be aware of their potential sensitivities but at the same time the NBK is not a kindergarten... Just use good judgment. #
  2. Philosophy

    In the Entropia Universe, almost all societies are plagued by the same problem which is their top skilled members eventually leave the group to go on to a society where there are others at their level who they can learn from. It is human nature to want to advance to the next level in a game and also in life.

    Over a decade ago we developed the following philosophy for our group:

    We believe that a player should not be held back by others, they should be free to progress as their skills, equipment, and abilities permit them to. The other members in their society who aren't able to keep the same pace with them should not hold them back but at the same time the people who are ready to move on should not have a reason to feel bad about doing so. They shouldn't feel as if they are leaving everyone else behind. A member of a society should be just that... a member. The society should not revolve around any one member; the society itself should be bigger than any one person, this way the society's future is not dependent upon the success or failure of that one person.

    This philosophy not only applies to skills and equipment but also to all areas of focus in the game. Like in real life, in the EU the success or failure of an individual often depends on the people they meet and the things they learn from them. In the NBK Group we have a “skill ladder” in our structure which provides an environment where a player can always be in a position where they can move up to be around people with the same interests who are either at or above their skill level. This means that even a highly skilled player is in a position where they can always learn more.

    This model has proven to be very effective for us and we expect it to continue to be for many years to come. #
