As of 26 October 2013. EntropiaPlanets vision The vision of EntropiaPlanets is to become a high-quality service focussing on the Entropia Universe platform, including all of its planets. The scope of the service shall not be restricted by default and include news, articles, interviews, discussions, guides, knowledgebase, tools and more, made accessible in various media forms. EntropiaPlanets desires to promote the potential of the platform and support its players and community with the desire to positively impact the game and its developers. Community driven EntropiaPlanets is community driven. This means that the site is run by members of the community, for members of the community. Everyone is encouraged to contribute in any shape or form, be it by adding information that might be helpful for others, by suggesting missing features, or by simply helping to fulfill this mission statement. Cooperative attitude EntropiaPlanets as a whole is the sum of its management, staff members, contributors, users, and even unregistered guests seeking knowledge. EntropiaPlanets does not strive to compete with MindArk, Planet Partners or other community driven projects and services. The opposite is the case: EntropiaPlanets is looking to cooperate with anyone and to share its contents and capabilities with anyone interested. Free and open EntropiaPlanets is free. It does not charge members for access to its contents. Technical restrictions aside, it does not make content inaccessible for not logged in visitors. EntropiaPlanets is "open source". The content created on EntropiaPlanets is available under a free license that allows you to copy it as a whole or in parts, alter it, create derivative works and make it accessible on any media for free or even for commercial in accordance with the few rules of the license. Further and more detailed information can be found in the license thread. Free speech EntropiaPlanets.com embraces free speech and limits censorship as much as possible while maintaining a strong 'Fan Based' subscriber base. We have created a specific section of the forum to accomodate for less positive sentiments titled "The Black Hole," and it may be used as an open forum for the more negative conversations that may need to take place. Disagreements with fellow forum-users are fine and understandable, but there is no need to get aggressive or abusive while addressing them. Please read the EntropiaPlanets Terms of Service and Rules to see what is and is not tolerated. Independency The management of EntropiaPlanets would like to make it clear that they have no affiliation with MindArk or any of the planet partners, and that EntropiaPlanets strives to remain impartial and independent. It is not funded by MindArk or the planet partners, and we will ensure it will remain that way. EntropiaPlanets policy Beyond this mission statement there is no such thing as an EntropiaPlanets policy, EntropiaPlanets agenda, EntropiaPlanets opinion or anything similar. Any statements made by its management, staff members, contributors, or users should be considered personal opinions and not that of the site itself. Closing words Thank you for joining EntropiaPlanets. We sincerely hope you can picture a role for yourself in the future we envision for this site. Although Entropia supports a Real Cash Economy, it is a game and we want to ensure that it remains fun for everyone.
