Community Rules

At Governor of Poker 3, we want to create an enjoyable and inclusive space where all players feel comfortable and safe. We kindly ask players to follow our Community Rules to help keep GOP3 as fun and safe as possible! Players that are unable to follow our Community Rules, and produce content to harass or make other players uncomfortable, will be penalised. We define content as any speech said by a player, a player's nickname and profile picture, a team’s name and it's description.

Don't discriminate: the game is for everyone to enjoy, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, political preferences and abilities.

Use appropriate language: poker is a passionate game and emotions can run high but stay focused - we are here to have fun, let’s keep it friendly!

Do not flood, bully or harass other users: there's no need to put others down - be positive and you’ll enjoy the game even more!

Keep the chat clean: refrain from making unwelcome sexual-related references. We take any sexual harassment case very seriously and will always take action.

Safety comes first: don't share any personal data with other players.

Respect above all: respect others, their interests, their right to express opinions, and their feelings!
