At Go Play NW, we are blessed by having an amazing community who support us and each other in have a great time hanging out and playing games.

Last year, for the first time, we included a brief code of conduct in our Event Guide. This year we have created a code of conduct and set of policies to help us all function together as a community as Go Play NW grows. We welcome feedback and commentary, as we expect our policies to continue to improve and evolve as we go. Please mail comments to info@goplaynw.org or come up and talk to us at the con.

Go Play NW Code of Conduct and Policies.
The purpose of Go Play NW is to create a space where people can gather together, play games, meet friends, and have fun.

1. Treat those around you with respect and maturity.

It’s you, the Go Play NW community, who make Go Play NW successful. Go Play NW works best when we all show respect for the people around us, strive to communicate clearly inside and outside of games, and act with maturity.

Do not engage in any of the following behaviors at Go Play NW:

  • Harassment
  • Discrimination on any basis including gender preference, sexual orientation, race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religion, and/or disability
  • Drunkenness or intoxication
  • Physical violence
  • Theft
  • Damage to personal or campus property

      
2. Always remember that Go Play NW is an inclusive event. We do not allow harassment or discrimination on any grounds.

We do not allow any pattern of behavior which intimidates, alarms, or threatens any person, or which puts them in fear of their safety. This is the opposite of mature, respectful behavior.

Failure to follow this code of conduct may result in:

  • Mediation
  • A verbal warning
  • Ejection from Go Play NW
  • Intervention by Campus Public Safety
  • Contacting local law enforcement

Go Play NW reserves the right to eject any attendee for any reason without refund.

3. If you have a problem at the event, please approach a staff member or volunteer. We are here to support you.

The Go Play NW volunteers and staff are here to support you. Please approach us if you witness or experience any issues at the convention.

Go Play NW volunteers can be identified by their green badges. If you cannot find a staff member or volunteer, you may contact Go Play NW Staff at any time by texting or calling one of the numbers in the event guide.
