Welcome

Thank you for joining our community. The Treehouse Communities were founded by Reasonably Selenium in 2017 to allow fans to collaborate and have fun while meeting new people. The original idea came from Cosmic Tree House*.  This document contains the rules and regulations of this community, as well as how our government works.  In retrospect, our community is a fast growing and family-oriented community. Anybody is accepted as long as they haven’t been previously banned.  The next few pages will consist of the rules and regulations of this community.

* Cosmic Tree House is a similar Discord Community has is currently not in association with Aclevo. All parties associated with CTH are not THC Staff unless it is specifically stated in the server’s staff list.

  7. All new users must consent to the constitution. No users will be allowed to interact with the community until they have done this. Once they have read the rules, they will be granted with a Verified role. If a user has been warned and/or has the warned role, they must be stripped of their permissions until they have agreed to the rules again.
  8. No staff members representing the Discord Servers are to be considered “above the law,” or “safe from the rules”; nor shall any of them make up rules that do not exist.  The rules are put in place for a reason, and if any user disobeys the rules, they will be punished in accordance with the proper procedures.  Any staff member that is found guilty of a or an attempt to coup, threatening the safety of the community, being “above the law”, making up rules, consider themselves safe from the rules, and/or defies the community to the extent of an impeachment shall be impeached and have their admin rights revoked indefinitely.  Any such behavior is considered inappropriate, and such behavior must not be present within this community.
  9. Community Rules and Regulations Amendment:  If such a need arises, the community rules and regulations can be changed if the entire community agrees with an 80% majority in favor of the change.
  10. The owner of the discord servers can modify rules if it fills up blank areas that were previously not addressed by the constitution.  However, the owner nor President nor Vice President cannot pass any new legislation (amendments to the current rules) without going through the proper channels first.
  11. In the event that an emergency were to arise where the owner, President, and/or Vice President is not present, the TreeHouse Council shall push the Security Council into session and declare Martial Law on all the Discord Servers until one of them are available.
  12. Martial Law shall be defined as the Security Council taking power of all the servers, create temporary rules to ensure security within the community, removing all invitation links to the servers, and notifying any Aclevo Staff of the incident.

  15. Anyone who creates external invite links without permission from the President and Vice President must follow the duties of Rule 8 on Staff Rules and impeach the person in power..

Conclusion

The People of the Treehouse Communities have all found that this document, and all of its rules and regulations are founded on a cause to help the community grow.  The growth of this community can inspire other communities to adopt similar systems to this community prototype model, as we have with inspiration from the Nkrs200 HQ Community Guidelines.
