commGuideList02E <strong>Avoid profanity. This includes milder, religious-based oaths that may be acceptable elsewhere and abbreviated or obscured profanity.</strong> We have people from all religious and cultural backgrounds, and we want to make sure that all of them feel comfortable in public spaces. <strong>If a moderator or staff member tells you that a term is disallowed on Habitica, even if it is a term that you did not realize was problematic, that decision is final.</strong> Additionally, slurs will be dealt with very severely, as they are also a violation of the Terms of Service. <strong>Avoid profanity.

commGuideList02F Avoid extended discussions of divisive topics in the Tavern and where it would be off-topic. If someone mentions something that is allowed by the guidelines but which is hurtful to you, it's okay to politely let them know that.

But if you feel that a conversation is getting heated, overly emotional, or hurtful, <strong>cease to engage. Instead, report the posts to let us know about it.</strong> Moderators will respond as quickly as possible. You may also email <a href='mailto:admin@habitica.com' target='_blank'>admin@habitica.com</a> and include screenshots if they may be helpful. <strong>Avoid extended discussions of divisive topics in the Tavern and where it would be off-topic</strong>.

commGuidePara023 <strong>Conversation tends to revolve around casual chatting and productivity or life improvement tips</strong>. Because the Tavern chat can only hold 200 messages, <strong>it isn't a good place for prolonged conversations on topics, especially sensitive ones</strong> (ex. politics, religion, depression, whether or not goblin-hunting should be banned, etc.). These conversations should be taken to an applicable Guild. A Mod may direct you to a suitable Guild, but it is ultimately your responsibility to find and post in the appropriate place. <strong>Conversation tends to revolve around casual chatting and productivity or life improvement tips</strong>.

Public Guild chat should focus on this theme. For example, members of the Wordsmiths Guild might be cross if the conversation is suddenly focusing on gardening instead of writing, and a Dragon-Fanciers Guild might not have any interest in deciphering ancient runes.
