Server Rules

This is an abridged version of our rules. Please see the Discord channel for our full list. We do not have many:

Age Restrictions

  • Our server is 18 and up, and our age range varies from 18 to 58, but we would love to welcome older members! Since our server is 18+, you should expect to see language that is mostly PG-13 with a little R mixed in. We do not police language outside of when it is inappropriate for peers.

Be Respectful

  • Above all, Upstate Geeks is an accepting community. We appreciate all our members and welcome geeks of all walks of life. We accept all gender and sexual identities and invite all members to cultivate new and old friendships.

Sharing and showing

  • We love seeing your geeky sites, blogs, creations, and ideas. Share your photos, selfies, and anything else you like (as long as it‘s appropriate).

Trusted Members

  • On our server, members with mint green names have been on the server the longest and can assist you with most questions about our meetups and the server itself. These members have often posted introductions, selected roles (a fast way to determine interests), engaged often, and attended meetups. Trusted members have access to channels hidden from standard members in order to maintain a level of trust on the server. We would like to get to know everyone, so this role is not closed to anyone.

Mod TeamĀ 

  • Our mod team consists of 2 admin, 5 moderators, and 2 part-time mods. The moderator team will gladly assist newcomers to the best we can and is enthusiastic about meeting you! Please say hello!
