MEEPLECON CODE OF CONDUCT

MeepleCon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and enjoyable convention experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We therefore expect attendees to follow these guidelines while they are within the venue or at any MeepleCon-sanctioned event. Convention attendees in violation of these rules may be given a warning or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the convention organizers.

Harassment We do not tolerate harassment of convention attendees, staff, or venue security in any form. Harassment includes, but is not limited to: Verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion Sexual images in public spaces Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following Harassing photography or recording Sustained disruption during demos or events Inappropriate physical contact Unwelcome sexual attention Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviors

Games With Adult Themes We recognize that some games are geared toward adults and therefore contain mature themes and specific content that may be deemed offensive to others. We ask that attendees exercise caution when playing these sorts of games, making sure to pay attention to their surroundings and ensuring that all participants in a game are comfortable with the subject matter. Staff or volunteers may ask you to discontinue any game that we deem to be disruptive to the event or its attendees.

Enforcement Attendees who are asked to stop any behavior are expected to comply immediately. If an attendee engages in behavior that violates these rules, con organizers retain the right to take any actions needed to keep the event a welcoming environment for all attendees including issuing a warning to the offender or removing the offender from the convention with no refund.

Event organizers may take action to address and/or prevent anything designed to, or with the clear impact of, disrupting the event or making the environment hostile for any attendees.

Reporting If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible to a convention staff member or volunteer. Staff and volunteers can be identified by their Volunteer Badges.

Personal Care & Hygiene We recognize that it can be easy to let time get away from you when you are playing games and you want to get the most out of your MeepleCon experience. For the health and safety of all attendees, we suggest everyone adhere to the 6-2-1 policy. Get at least six hours of sleep, eat at least two meals, and take at least one shower each day. If you believe someone has a health or hygiene-related issue that needs to be addressed, please notify a staff member or volunteer.
