  • Courtesy in a Nutshell: General Public, Private and Event Conduct

    Dear Denizens,

    Below you will find a simplified list of what conduct is expected in which situation. The following will cover general public conduct, private conduct and conduct when at events and socials.

    As with most societal rules, they are subject to change with the times, and any changes to protocol will be posted for general education.

      General Private Conduct

      General Private Conduct
      • You should remain polite in private audiences with those of rank, unless told otherwise.
      • You should remain polite in private if you are not on familiar terms with all present.
      • You may be at ease around those you are on familiar terms with; within their boundaries.
      • You should be discreet about entering the chambers of members of the opposite sex*.
      • You should respect the personal area of others; do not touch or take without permission.
      • You should not gossip or share conversations with that you've had with your betters.
      • You may have drinks and foods available if you plan to entertain guests privately.


      * NOTE: The fourth stipulation does not apply if you are married to the individual. The sixth stipulation is common sense; if they give you permiss to share such you may.
