Our ReTrans Community Rules & Etiquette: In order to create a fair and respectful online environment where everybody who is part of the ReTrans Community feels safe to discuss, share, and engage in fruitful exchanges and interesting conversations, please follow the rules for “fair play” on our server:

  • The primary language of this server is English. For interpreters in the respective channels, this is of course situation specific. However, general exchange takes place in English.
  • Be friendly. Any form of harassment, such as (but not limited to) oppressive and offensive language, doxxing, trolling, discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, ableism, ageism and hate speech will not be tolerated.
  • No spam. That means no promotional posts. Recommendations on the topic of more suitable tools, suitable events, etc. are ok, as long as they are within reason and fit the topic.
  • No server invitation links! If there is a server with a community matching a certain topic that you want to recommend, do it as text and not as a direct link. (And remember: no spam! See above).
  • No inappropriate names or avatar pictures.
  • No invisible names or any symbols that take up more than one line of text.
  • No impersonating names, whether they be a Moderator, or a fellow member.
  • Members must be at least 18 years old.
