WN95HL: A Community of Great Times and Great Respect
Thanks for your interest in WN95HL!
We look forward to having you be a part of our community and join us in celebrating a 25+ year old 16-bit Sega Genesis classic that has withstood the test of time.
Here at WN95HL, we strive to foster a community that proves to be an enduring and positive element in the lives of those who are a part of it. The competition is fierce, the emotions are real, but at the end of the day, it is all about having a great time playing an incredible game and sharing the experience with an enthusiastic community.
As members of this community, we agree to abide by a Code of Conduct that is designed to help ensure that we can maintain a great place for people to spend their time.
Code of Conduct: The TL;DR Version
The quick version of the WN95HL Code of Conduct is simple: Be respectful in your communication and treatment of others both within the WN95HL Community and when representing the WN95HL Community.
The full version of our Code of Conduct follows.

The WN95HL community is expected to be a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, age, body size, visible or invisible disability, caste, color, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.
Examples of behavior that contributes to a positive environment for our community include:
Demonstrating empathy and support for other people
Being respectful of differing opinions, viewpoints, and experiences
Giving and gracefully accepting constructive feedback

Focusing on what is best not just for us as individuals, but for the overall community

Trolling, insulting or derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
Public or private harassment
Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or email address, without their explicit permission

Community leaders are responsible for clarifying and enforcing our standards of acceptable behavior and will take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any behavior that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
Community leaders have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments or other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, and will communicate reasons for moderation decisions when appropriate.
