JackerCon is our annual inclusive, casual online convention. It is run by Happy Jacks community volunteers and is a great opportunity to try out new-to-you systems!
The JackerCon Discord server is the hub of the online convention where sign-ups take place. Games can be held in the Discord, or on other platforms like Zoom or Roll 20 based on the GM’s preference.
Anyone can run a game in any system at any time during the weekend of July 22-24th. Simply join the server and post your game.
➡ Your game must, at minimum, have an Open Door Policy, and use Lines and Veils, and the X-card. You can use other safety tools in addition to these, if you wish.
➡ If you are going to be using another platform (Zoom, Roll20, etc) to run your game, please make that clear in your game signup info!
PLAYING GAMES: Game sign ups are first come, first served.
➡ If you sign up for a game and are unable to make it, please update your sign-up and post ASAP so that someone else can fill the open seat in the game.
➡ GMs can remove a player from their game at any time if they are failing to recognize safety tools or are causing a disruption to the enjoyment of others.
✦ Everyone is welcome and of equal value. All community members deserve and will be given respect.
✦ No harassment or discriminatory behavior towards anyone will be tolerated. (see below for more information)
✦ No sharing other people’s personal information without their express knowledge and permission, including real names, former names, locations, contact information, family members’ names, employment, occupation, etc.
✦ Keep things constructive and have a positive attitude toward your fellow community members. Discussing things you dislike is fine, but make sure criticism is aimed at the topic of discussion and not at the other participants in the conversation.
✦ No private or direct messaging (“DMing”) community members without asking permission first. If you’d like to chat with someone privately, simply tag them in the appropriate public channel and ask if you can DM them. Be respectful of their wishes. (The only exception is DMing mods on time sensitive server business).
✦ No directly soliciting money or selling things on the server. If you want to share your website, podcast, stream, crowdfunding project, or anything else use the promoting-stuff channel.
✦ This is a community for adults: channel language and discussion topics may reflect that.
✦ Our Rules are not a subject of debate. In addition to these general Rules, each Channel may contain additional rules (pinned at the top of the channel), which you agree to obey and follow when you post a message.
If you see something that breaks the code of conduct, feels wrong, or if you’re in a situation where you don’t know what to do, get a mod’s attention by typing “@Mods” or by privately DMing an available mod.
We want this to be a fun, pleasant, and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
✦ Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neurotypicality/neurodivergence, physical appearance, body size, race, culture, or religious/spiritual beliefs.
✦ Unwelcome comments regarding a person’s lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, drugs, and employment.
✦ Deliberate misgendering or use of ‘dead’ or rejected names
✦ Gratuitous or off-topic sexual images or behavior in spaces where they’re not appropriate.
✦ Simulated physical contact (e.g. textual descriptions like “hug” or “backrub”) without consent or after a request to stop.
✦ Threats of violence or making personal information public (“doxxing”)
✦ Incitement of violence towards any individual, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm
✦ Sustained disruption of discussion
✦ Unwelcome sexual attention
✦ Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease
✦ Publication of private communications
