Extra Life Community Standards updated

Extra Life is unlike any other community in the world, our culture of kindness is unmatched. We hold our community to firm standards outlined below in honor of the families and hospitals we serve. We want Extra Life to be a safe and fun place for everyone to gather while fundraising, competing or hanging out together. We’re all here to have fun, support kids, and enjoy playing great games!

COMMUNITY MISSION
Through the creation of inclusive communities, we engage donors, advocates, influencers and celebrities to change kids’ health and change the future. When we fund children’s hospitals, we transform how we meet the most urgent needs, saving more lives and protecting our collective future.

VALUES AND GUIDELINES
Our approach is “people, first” when communicating with community members. We address them and represent ourselves as individuals to give them an authentic experience.

We are proud of our diversity! All community members should feel safe and respected; bullying or harassment of any kind is not allowed. This includes degrading comments surrounding race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity.

We value positivity and a spirit of hope.

Changing kids’ health is our utmost priority and community space is provided to assist donors, advocates, influencers and celebrities with their fundraising efforts. Topics not related to children’s healthcare or what members and/or members’ local communities are doing to help change kids’ health to change the future should take place elsewhere, outside our platforms.

Community members who do not adhere to our Community Standards may be subject to consequences including but not limited to warnings, temporary muting or removal and/or permanent removal from community spaces. If you encounter a potential infraction, please report it by contacting an administrator or moderator. We will take action if Community Standards have been violated.

ADDITIONAL RULES FOR FACEBOOK GROUPS
Self-promotion unrelated to [CMN Hospitals or its brands], spam and irrelevant links are not allowed.

Being part of any of our Facebook Groups requires mutual trust. We encourage authentic, expressive discussions, but please respect confidentiality and be sensitive to other community members both in and out of the group.

ADDITIONAL RULES FOR DISCORD
Keep in mind as to how you are responding to rulings, mods, admins, or Extra Life staff in this group and on other public platforms. Disrespect and purposeful negativity will be reviewed seriously and actioned upon if necessary.

We expect all tournament participants to play fairly and within the rules and any code of conducts and terms of service pertaining to the game(s) and platforms they are choosing to play. Cheating, grief, exploiting bugs or game impacting glitches will not be allowed.

MODERATION AND ESCALATION
Changing kids’ health is our utmost priority and community space is provided to assist donors, advocates, influencers and celebrities with their fundraising efforts. Topics not related to children’s healthcare or what members and/or members’ local communities are doing to help change kids’ health to change the future should take place elsewhere, outside our platforms. Here is how we define various types of off-topic and/or sensitive content:

  • Off-topic content (ex. promoting or selling other products, programs or platforms not related to CMN Hospitals)
  • Sensitive content (ex. personal/private information, conflict between community members, controversial or conspiracy, social issue content that has escalated)
  • Crisis content (harassment, assault, profanity, rough language, sexually suggestive, sensational or shocking, intentional prejudiced hate)
  • Potential legal infractions

USERNAME AND TEAM NAME POLICY
Across all communities, usernames and team names are subject to the same review and guidelines as off-topic and/or sensitive content. Participants with usernames or team names that contain profanity, vulgarity or rough language will be asked to select a new name. Names reported to CMN Hospitals will be reviewed and handled by our Community Experience team.
