These rules need to be followed by all attendees. If you have any questions regarding these rules, please reach out to staff so they can explain it to you.

Rule #1a Don't break the law

Wherever the event is taking place, all laws that apply to that place apply here, including policies enforced by the hotel.

Rule #1b Don't be an asshole

If you are harassing people, messing with equipment maliciously, being overly obnoxious, or just plain rude, you will be kicked out of the event. During the night, don’t be too loud or the hotel staff might get mad. Drinking or being drunk isn’t banned, but if you are obnoxious you will be told to leave the marathon room.

Rule #1c Don't steal anything

If you steal something from another attendee, you will have to give it back/reimburse them. Depending on what’s stolen you might also be banned from future NASA events.

Rule #2 Badges must be worn visibly when in public event areas of the hotel

All attendees are required to wear their attendee badge in a visible way when you are in event areas such as the marathon or practice rooms. Your badge cannot be loaned or shared with anyone. If you left your badge in your room, you will need to go get it before you can enter event areas. If your badge is not visible, you will be asked to make it visible. If you have lost your badge, a replacement can be purchased for $5 (to pay for the badge itself). Your name must be on your badge; guests can write this in at the event. Refusal to wear your badge can result in being banned from the event.

Rule #3a Maintain hygiene

Looking like a dirtbag is fine, smelling like one is not. You will be asked to leave until your odor is acceptable.

Rule #3b Keep food/drink away from video games

Only closed-container drinks are allowed near equipment. You can bring food in marathon rooms if you keep it away from equipment, but if it’s messy or smelly (meatball marinara sub, honey garlic wings, etc) you will need to take it elsewhere.

Rule #3c Clean up after yourself

Don’t litter, don’t leave your belongings lying around the hotel, don’t make a mess. If you do make a mess, clean it up. If trash bags are full, please let a Staff member know.

Rule #4 You break it, you buy it

You have to reimburse attendees if you break/destroy any of their stuff (consoles, controllers, games, clothes, TVs, etc)

Rule #5 No streaming unless given permission by NASA staff

Please ask Staff if you'd like to stream something.

Rule #6 Obey the staff

If a hotel staff member or NASA staff member tells you to do something (leave a room, show badge, give up a TV, etc.) you need to do it.

Rule #7 On stream behavior:

Don't do anything that will get the stream banned from Twitch.

Rule #8 Runners control the room during their run

Runner's have creative control over the marathon room during their run on stream. If a runner wants you off the stream during their run, then you are not allowed on stream. If a runner wants you to stop doing something, stop doing it. Interrupting or not obeying the runner during their run can result in a ban.
