ALWAYS WEAR THE ARMBAND
Your wristband is proof that you are a full participant in StarFest.
It allows you to use all areas of the Festival. When requested, present it to StarFest staff and security
HAVE A VISIBLE ID
Your badge tells you how you should be addressed by other Festival attendees. - Write your name or nickname on it and wear it in a visible place. The color of your badge determines your accessibility to specific areas.
TREAT OTHERS AND THEIR PASSIONS WITH RESPECT
Treat other fans and other communities of fandom with respect - as you would want them to treat you and your hobby. Do not over-preach, insult, or ridicule. StarFest is a joint event for all fantasy and pop culture fans. We make every effort to ensure that everyone regardless of their area of interest, finds something for themselves and feels comfortable. The goal of the festival is to have fun - taunting and tormenting other fans is not accepted.
AGAINST BULLYING AND HARASSMENT
We make sure that StarFest is a welcoming space for everyone. Each StarFest participant is required to treat others with respect. Physical or verbal harassment will not be tolerated. Such behavior is a violation of the event rules and regulations and will result in removal from the Festival and reporting to the appropriate services.
If you have encountered harassment in any form, insults, or bullying (physical or verbal), you should report it by phone or in person to the Information Desk as soon as possible. The Festival staff will help resolve the disturbing situation. We welcome the presence of every participant and are committed to making everyone feel safe and comfortable.
Remember, a costume is not an invitation to be rudely accosted - do not touch or photograph cosplayers (or any other person) without their permission.
Alcohol is strictly prohibited at StarFest. There is a food and beverage zone at the festival, where you can, not only, eat but also consume alcohol. This is the only zone where drinking is allowed. Drink sensibly - participants in a state of alcoholic intoxication may be expelled from the Festival.
ADDRESS EACH OTHER BY FIRST NAMES
In Polish fantasy fandom, there is an old rule of calling each other by your first name - regardless of your age or role at the Festival. Therefore, don't be surprised if a stranger addresses you in this direct form. It is not a sign of disrespect, but a sense of belonging to one group. If you are comfortable with this - we encourage you to cultivate this tradition - it's fun to feel that you are part of a larger group because of it.
