=Mental Mentors Group Charter Version 1.2a=
+

Mental Mentors is not an open enrollment group, new members are required to be Second Life Active Mentors** or retired Mentors in good standing ONLY and new members are invited by the group managers or officers.
+
 
+
The following Group Charter has been written, and will work in conjunction with the '''TOS, Community Standards and Mentor TAO.'''
+
 
+
As responsible Mentors it is only fair  that  we treat each other as well as our fellow SL residents with the respect we all deserve regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, creed, gender, or sexual orientation.
+
+
'''Matters involving political, religious or nation of origin bashing; constitute non Tao behavior. These actions are also in violation of the Community standards of Second Life.'''
+
 
+
'''Any person, who openly slanders, harassess or victimises any group member, through either a group notice, or group chat, will receive a formal written warning from management.'''
+
 
+
If the behaviour persists, the offending party will be ejected from the group, with no form of redress.
+
 
+
*Group Notices. Can only be sent out by Officers, Admin, Press Officers and Management of MM.
+
 
+
''Group Notices are intended to be an information source, they are not orders, they are suggestions. As with any sugggestion, it is up to the individual to determine if they wish to adopt the suggestion.''
+
 
+
'''Notices that contain kits, are to be sent out through the weekly drop box.'''
+
 
+
'''If you wish to have an event notice sent to MM, please give officers at least one weeks notice. You pre-plan, so one week notice is not a big ask.'''
+
 
+
Officers that send out inappropriate notecards will be asked to provide an explanation.
+
 
+
'''Examples:'''
+
 
+
''Fund raisers for individual persons, not charities.''<br>
