CODE OF CONDUCT
Our rule is pretty simple: be respectful. Please respect others’ safety and personal space, as well as any rules listed related to the event or forum. We personally believe Rooster Teeth fans and community members are the coolest ever—prove us right by helping ensure a safe, respectful, inclusive environment. We want everyone to have fun and enjoy their experience!
While at events, please remember – COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT. Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of another fan, always ask first and respect that person’s right to say no.
Be respectful, be nice, be cool, and be kind to each other.
This Code of Conduct applies to the Rooster Teeth community as a whole—not only events, but also our website, social media channels, and in-person and online interactions. If you engage with anyone in a disrespectful or inappropriate manner or do not adhere to our Code of Conduct, we reserve the right to immediately remove you from the event or forum without refund and ban you from future Rooster Teeth activities or events.
Who follows our Code?
Everyone. Employees, guests, visitors, fans, and community members. If you attend a Rooster Teeth sponsored event, visit us online, or interact with us online, we expect all participants to be kind and respectful to one another by following our Code of Conduct. Any breaches in this Code will result in action, included, but not limited to: written or verbal warnings, temporary banning, permanent ban, removal without refund for tickets, or other methods as determined by Rooster Teeth in its sole discretion.
We have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for harassment of any kind, including but not limited to:
Stalking, intimidation, offensive verbal or written comments, physical assault and/or battery, harassing or non-consensual photography or recording, sustained disruption of panels, signings, and other events, bathroom policing, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome physical attention, or hate symbols.
In relation, but not limited to:
Race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender presentation, sexual orientation, age, body size, disability, appearance, religion, citizenship, or pregnancy.
Hate symbols are not permitted, including as part of cosplay, nor are any costumes that contain hate symbols or appropriate the symbolism of hate groups, including, but not limited to, historical/comic-related/satirical costumes that are associated with Nazis. Whether a behavior or a costume violates this policy shall be determined by Rooster Teeth in its sole discretion.
What do I do if….
- I feel like someone has broken the Code of Conduct?
Don’t just let it happen. Tell us immediately. Our community managers are available via email@example.com. To file a formal complaint, email us and provide detailed information about the situation along with your contact information so we can solve this in a reasonable time frame. Screenshots, transcripts, and more can only help your case so be detailed when letting us know what the problem is.
- Rooster Teeth has contacted me and told me my behavior violates the Code of Conduct?
You would have been given the exact reason why and you should stop immediately. Further actions by your person can only mean increased actions taken by Rooster Teeth.
- I experienced or saw harassment ONLINE on the RT app?
You should file a formal complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, providing detailed information about the situation along with your contact information. If the harassment occurred on another forum (e.g. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) please contact that forum to report concerns.
- I experienced or saw harassment AT AN EVENT or other REAL LIFE EVENT?
If you feel unsafe in your immediate location, alert the nearest Staff member (wearing an RTX Staff Badge) or notify the registration desk and move to a safe location. If this is not possible, go to the Security Booth or call the police.
