If someone is causing problems, or you believe that you are being subjected to abuse or harassment by another individual on either on the website on the chat then this is how the issues WILL be sorted.
Step 1: Whoever believes that they are being subjected to abuse needs to contact one of the admins.
Step 2: The admin will need to collect evidence of this abuse, including but not limited to; screen shots from group chats, screen shots from personal chats with abuser, and public messages on the website or other public areas.
Step 3: The admin will then collate the information and provide an overview to the Alpha pack, this is a group with all the admins in.
Step 4: The Alpha's will review all evidence and decide upon the seriousness of the accusation, and will then vote upon the action that should be taken.
Step 5: The users are both told, privately, the decision that was decided on.
