Motion from Sean re Ops and Guidelines

OP's must follow the guidelines as listed on the

- specifically under the section "If inappropriate behavior occurs" as listed below.

If these specific guidelines are not followed when dealing with inappropriate behavior and brought to the attention of the officers, then a warning should be issued to the OP, and OP should provide proof of following the guidelines. If they cannot prove they followed the warning, then a warning is made to the OP that they must follow the guidelines. If it happens again with the same OP within 90 days, then OP will be removed from service for 7 days. Continued disregard of the guidelines by the offending OP will result in further disciplinary actions.

The guidelines as listed on the website:

B) If the offender continues to disrupt the room, they will be de-voiced for a period of time up to 10 minutes serious room disruptions may require immediate de-voicing earlier before warning)

C) If the behavior continues, the offender will be kicked from the room with the reason briefly given in the kick message

D) If the offender continues to breach the behavior guidelines after all the above actions have been taken, they will be informed in pm of the guideline(s) breached and that a ban will be imposed. The length of the ban will be stated, and any request for lifting the ban should be addressed to the SLAA Online office at
