You must respect other users across CC spaces. This is not a space to have discussions on whether or not someone's identity or issue or 'valid' or 'real'. This can include, but is not limited to:
- Do not use terms such as 'OCD', 'psycho', 'narcissist', 'schizo', or other terms related to mental health disparagingly as these are potentially ableist remarks
- Do not have discussions on if someone should be allowed to reproduce (in other words: eugenics)
- Do not deny how someone says they identify, including any & all queer or LGBT+ identities and issues, race, and/or mental illness or neurodivergency
- Be mindful of how you discuss things you don't like (including fandoms, kinks, characters, etc). Don't kinkshame, and don't be a jerk; if someone is talking about how they like a thing, it's inappropriate to tell them you think it's gross/inappropriate/unattractive/etc unprompted.

Respect the creator's boundaries and only draw their character in content that the creator has approved of.

Submissions must include warnings for content where appropriate. In general, it's better to include too many warnings than not enough.
- 4 -
Submissions involving your own OCs must involve at least one OC belonging to someone else, otherwise the submission won't count for points.
Your opponents OCs must have equal or more presence in the content as your own OCs.
- 5 -
Submissions involving canon characters must involve at least one OC that doesn't belong to you, otherwise the submission won't count for points.
The OCs involved must have equal or more presence in the content as the canon character.
"Design Me A Character" Prompts
We do allow "Design me a character" prompts, and subsequently, submissions for Clashes.
Character design submissions must be original art, or at least 50% original assets for 3D modelling, crafts or custom figures/dolls, etc.
The artist forfeits design rights to said character design upon submission as a Clash entry. Submissions of image(s) containing character designs intended for two or more opponents must have all designs clearly labelled with the intended recipients, or the submission may be discarded as an entry.
Character design submissions will be counted for points as any other character submission.
For the comfort and safety of other participants we ask that you add content warning tags (as applicable) to your characters and posts. A sample list of what content we would like people to tag for is below.
What we mean by 'tagging your posts' is literally tagging them as per our post-tagging system (you can find out how to do that here), as well as including them in the body of your post somewhere appropriate, such as with a profile or character. Tags for content must also be placed directly before any links that contain content worthy of warning if linking to external sites.
Everyone is welcome to post whatever content they like, and likewise can list what content they do and do not consent to receiving.
Please respect other participants and do not create content for them they have explicitly stated they do NOT want to receive. We encourage communication so please ask your 'victim' if you aren't sure what content they would like, or simply don't create it unless explicitly listed.
Please at least warn for the following content:
- Dead Dove content such as underage, incest, bestiality, non-con, gore, vore, etc
- Triggering content such as self harm, eating disorders, drug use, etc
- Hateful content such as hate group imagery, racism, homophobia, transphobia, etc.
This list is not exhaustive and Mods may as you to add additional content warnings if we feel it is necessary.
When in doubt, it's best to add tags for anything you think of. It will always be better to list warnings you're unsure about than leave them out.
Three Strike System
We operate on a Three Strike system for moderation. You can receive a strike if you break our rules or as a result of inappropriate actions on our site.
You can receive two strikes, then on the third strike you are banned from the event.
We may issue a warning to caution you of certain actions instead of a full strike.
When issuing a warning or a strike, you will receive notification on your account.
You are welcome to appeal to Staff regarding a warning or strike, or ask for clarity on our actions.
Some actions will result in an instant ban from CC spaces. This is a non-exhaustive list of criteria that can result in an instant ban:
- You are found to agree with the theft of creative works to program AI-generation
- You are found to be harmfully homophobic, racist, transphobic, etc, or be associated with a hate group.
- You are found to be, support, or knowingly share spaces with pro-contact or neutral contact harmful paraphiles
- You are found to share non-public CC information outside of CC spaces. This includes sharing screenshots, or copy-pasting text.
In the event you are banned, you will be barred access from the website and emailed notification of your ban.
Being banned from the website may also result in a ban on our Discord server.
Mods will keep an eye on comments and posts to ensure these rules are followed.
