What is Tribunal?

Tribunal is part of the moderation process for Monarchs' Glen. The idea is to promote positive discourse, rather than allow hostility to build up between members of the community.

The Tribunal is made up of a selection of Forums, the main forum being for open discussion about topics raised by Staff or the community. Only members of staff can post new topics into the main forum.

The Request Tribunal subforum enables other community members to request a discussion. Staff members are able to view Tribunal requests, and decide whether to move them to the open forum, or one of the private courts.

The closed Tribunal forum, contains any thread that has been raised and agree to be closed. If you would like to reopen one of these closed discussions, please make a Tribunal Request.


The Tribunal Process.

Unless agreement can be reached in the thread, Tribunal threads will reach a voting stage. A poll will be added to the thread, and members of the Staff team will vote on the matter.


Emotion has no place in Tribunal. Sleep on it.

Warnings and Tribunal.

The warnings process for Monarchs' Glen will depend on circumstances, and be left to the discretion of Moderators. Certain behaviour may be result in instant removal from these message boards.

For normal situations, the following process will apply. Stages may be missed at the Moderators discretion.

1. Staff will reply to your post, or in some cases edit it (in some situations PMing you your pre-edited post).
2. Staff will send you a Private Message explaining the problem
3. Staff will send you an invitation to a private Tribunal

We want to create a community here that thinks before it posts, Staff are not immune from mislapses of judgement. If you feel that you have been unjustly spoken to by a member of staff, then please submit a request for private Tribunal.

Please be aware, should the Tribunal process not be followed, we will alway side with the Staff member, regardless of situation.

Minor detail - perhaps call it "Tribunal Requests"? (I'm sure Mav knows the proper legal term for this lol.)

Subforum was renamed from 'New Tribunal' to 'Request Tribunal'. ~ Kaz
And I never even got my own damn posting title!
