Legal Guidelines

Welcome to Space Epic Untitled Creator's Community, a Kuma, LLC (“Us” or “Our” or “We”) Wikidot Website

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) are a legal contract between you (“You” or “Your”) and Us (collectively, “Everyone”) and govern Your use of all the text, data, information, software, graphics, photographs and more (all of which We refer to as “Materials”) of Our Wikidot website (“Website”).

READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE BROWSING THIS WEBSITE. USING THIS WEBSITE INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE BOTH READ AND ACCEPT THESE TERMS. YOU CANNOT USE THIS WEBSITE IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS.

1. INTRODUCTION.

We, the owners of the Website, have created this site for fans to join with Us in creating the next episode of Kuma's episodic game series and sci-fi epic tale “Space Epic Untitled.” Thanks for Your help! This is an experiment — We're taking the crowdsourcing approach that has made the Internet great, and applying it to mass entertainment.

We're excited to see what comes out.

Since You're participating in this Website, because You want to play in our world, You understand that by participating in this Website, You are contributing to our commercial products. We plan on using Materials here and releasing new episodes based on what Everyone creates together, and We obviously need the rights to develop our content based on Your participation. But We don't make any promises about the content You post making it into any of our products. Or even that there will be future products.

You also understand that anything You post is not confidential and other people may see it. We (and potentially other fans of the site) may edit or change or even remove Your content temporarily or permanently. We might do that because the things You post are objectionable, wrong, not in keeping with our story, in or are formatted in some way that bugs everybody, or some other reason. We may not tell You the reason. We're shaping a universe, and We reserve the right to edit everything posted to this Website as We see fit.

2. CHANGES.

We may choose to modify, suspend or discontinue this Website at any time and without notifying You. We may also change, update, add or remove provisions (collectively, “modifications”) of these Terms from time to time. Because Everyone benefits from clarity, we promise to inform You of any modifications to these Terms by posting them on the Website.

Please use the wikidot "watch" feature for this Terms page (which feature, at the time of this writing is "on" by default for new members) to receive notification in your Wikidot profile message inbox; you can choose to have this and other notifications forwarded to your email by changing your Wikidot profile settings. To be sure You are properly notified, please keep your Wikidot profile up to date with your current email or check you Wikidot message center frequently.

If You object to any such modifications, Your sole recourse shall be to cease using this Website. Continued use of this Website following notice of any such modifications indicates that You acknowledge and agree to be bound by the modifications.
