Code of Conduct

All attendees of Furality Online Xperience and/or any other events run by Furality, Inc. are required to abide by this Code of Conduct. This policy was last updated on March 13, 2024.

You should know

Furality Online Xperience, “Furality”, is an online convention taking place within the VRChat virtual reality platform.

All attendees are expected to abide by the Furality Online Xperience Code of Conduct as well as the VRChat Terms of Use and Community Guidelines. This Code of Conduct serves as part of our Terms of Service.

Violation of this code of conduct, or any behavior that causes interference with convention operations or discomfort to attendees of Furality Online Xperience may result in the revocation of registration without any refund or other recourse at the sole discretion of Furality staff members.

Registration for Furality Online Xperience and/or any other events run by Furality, Inc. does not guarantee admittance to any specific world instance or event. Furality can have multiple thousands of attendees at each event, contained within hundreds of active VRChat instances that range in capacity from 15 to 80 players. Due to this, every instance will be considered first come, first served for registered attendees. There is no guarantee or reasonable expectation that an attendee will be able to join any single specific event instance at any time. However, our systems continually generate empty instances to allow attendees to participate in each event/meetup in dedicated instances where you will find other attendees interested in the same event/meetup.

Panels, performances, and DJ sets are simulcast to all related event instances. The “host“ instance where a panelist, performer, or DJ is located is inaccessible to attendees.

Allowed content and behavior

VRChat is a publicly accessible service and Furality is unable to fully control admission to convention instances or control behavior occurring on the VRChat platform. Furality cannot and will not be held liable for any activity or consequence of activity occurring during the convention. All attendees enter at their own risk.

Please use common sense: Explicit, lewd, or sexual behavior or discussion is not permitted in convention instances. This includes the use of sexually suggestive or explicit avatars, such as avatars with visible genitalia, clothing that features genital definition or reveals genitalia, or genital bulges that make use of physics or movement animations.

Assets and content uploaded to VRChat are not secure and may be downloaded or utilized by other players. We recommend you do not use avatars that are for private and/or licensed use only. Furality is not liable for any misuse or compromising of assets uploaded to the VRChat platform or utilized during the convention.

The use of “meme“ avatars or avatars with distracting or disruptive sounds, lights, particles, or shaders are strictly prohibited in any convention instances.

Sharing of VRChat accounts, F.O.X. Portal information, or otherwise assisting with enabling the attendance of unregistered users is prohibited.

The determination of what behavior, content, avatars, and/or other assets, or actions may or may not fall into any prohibited category is at the sole discretion of Furality staff.

Streaming and recording

By attending Furality Online Xperience and its events, you give consent that your in-game likeness and behavior, including voice, avatar, and username, may be broadcast (streamed) or recorded by Furality and its attendees. Please keep this in mind throughout the convention and refrain from excessive use of swearing or vulgar language.

Registered attendees may record and/or livestream from convention instances for non-commercial purposes. If you would like to record and/or livestream for commercial purposes, please see our Commercial Media Policy below.

Interviews of attendees or staff will be considered a commercial purpose regardless of use case and must follow our Commercial Media Policy.

Please note that audio within convention instances may contain copyrighted material and that this policy does not grant you the right to use said copyrighted materials. You are responsible for your own compliance with applicable copyright law(s).

You are not permitted to repost or stream exact copies of Furality livestreams or broadcasts. You must capture the content with your own in-game view. For example: you *may* point your camera at a stage that includes an in-world streaming video player; you may not position your camera so that the only thing visible is the video player without any surrounding world/environment that would distinguish it as its own recording.

You are advised and given notice that Furality Online Xperience permits attendees and itself to take photographs and make recordings at Furality events, post them on social media, and use them for many lawful purposes. By attending a Furality event, you agree to be photographed or recorded during the event (in still photographs, audio recordings, video recordings and any other media, now known or hereafter discovered, hereafter “Recordings“), by attendees, vendors, and others without compensation.

Additionally, by attending a Furality event, you grant to Furality the rights, but not the obligation, to create photographs, video, digital, audio, or other recordings, including the Live Simulcast & Broadcast (“Furality Recordings“) of you and grant Furality the right to reproduce, display, distribute, perform, digitize, transmit, broadcast and otherwise use the Furality Recordings in any and all media and manners now known or hereafter discovered throughout the world in perpetuity, in whole or in part, modified or altered, either by themselves, or in combination with other photographs, recordings or materials, without payment of royalties, license fees, or any other compensation. Furality will hold the copyright to the Furality Recordings. To the extent you have any rights in the Furality Recordings, you hereby assign all your rights, titles, and interests in and to the Furality Recordings to Furality.

Minors must follow the rules set in the VRChat Terms of Use and be monitored by their parent or guardian at all times while interacting in VRChat. Minors must also have their parent or guardian register for the convention on their behalf. Those under the age of 18 can not participate as a panelist, performer, DJ, or volunteer at Furality Online Xperience.

Technical Issues

Furality is not responsible for technical difficulties or issues resulting from internet connectivity problems, computer performance, streaming video issues, platform (VRChat) outages, or any other issues outside of our control.

Please ensure your computer and/or VR setup meets the system requirements to run VRChat before registering for the event. We recommend trying out VRChat in a populated instance in the weeks before the Furality event begins to assess your device’s performance. Due to the popularity of Furality events, there may be significant strain on your system’s performance in some instances. Registration will not be refunded if you find you are unable to participate in crowded instances of the event due to poor device performance.

If you have any questions about device compatibility or how to test your device before the convention begins, please contact us on our Discord server using the #furality-help channel.
