Code of Conduct

General Note

If you need to locate an Impossible Realities Staff member for any reason either look for the staff badge or ask at the information desk and the volunteer there can locate one of us quickly.

General Misbehaviour

Impossible Realities believes that attendees should experience a convention free of harassment. This applies to all attendees, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, physical appearance, disability, body size or other identifying factor. Harassment, whether from attendees, staff, volunteers, exhibitors, guests or any others associated with convention will not be tolerated.

What do we consider harassment?

  • Deliberate intimidation (gaming trash talk that threatens or disparages another)
  • Stalking
  • Body or gender policing
  • Verbal comments, writing or imagery that demonstrates harmful or oppressive intent towards a specific group or individual.
  • Unwelcome photography or recording (ask permission first)
  • Inappropriate or unwelcome physical contact
  • Inappropriate or unwelcome sexual attention
  • Persistent disruption of talks or events.
  • Responding to harassment

Impossible Realities participants who experience or witness harassment are asked to report it to a non-involved staff member immediately.

Attendees who are asked to stop any behaviour identified as harassment are expected to comply immediately with the request to stop the behaviour. Those who refuse to comply or commit repeat offenses are subject to ejection from the convention without refund.

All attendees, staff, volunteers, guests, vendors and exhibitors and any other persons associated with the convention agree to uphold this policy.

Respect to others

Gaming and cosplay are inclusive hobbies and Impossible Realities is open to all who uphold a culture of respect towards their fellow guests. We ask everyone to be mutually accountable to maintain a healthy and enjoyable convention for all.
