General Rules

I. General offenses
  1. Advertising other communities is not allowed.
    • Any other links are up to staff interpretation.
  2. Don't use any sorts of exploits (name hacks, aimbot, spinbot etc.).
    • This includes exploiting maps and/or server plug-ins.
  3. No NSFW sprays or Objectors (e.g. pornographic, offensive, etc.)
    • NSFW (“Not safe for work”) - Images, videos, or some other form of Internet post that wouldn't be appropriate for workplace viewing.
    • Sharing pornographic content in chat is neither allowed.
  4. Do not spawn trap or spawn camp
    • Staff have final say on what is spawncamp/trapping. Refer to here for most of them, though.
  5. Do not abuse the report or voteban system.
  6. Teleporting enemies into spawn is not allowed.
  7. Point farming is not allowed.
    • Doing this may result in your stats getting erased.
II. Communication offenses
  1. Respect your fellow members and the community's staff.
    • Insulting one and another will not be tolerated.
  2. No hate speech of any format.
    • This includes any use of slurs or variants on slurs.
  3. Do not excessively swear or scream profanities.
  4. No matter where you're from, it'd be appreciated if you could stick to English only so that most people (especially staff members) can understand you.
  5. Do not mic or chat-spam under any circumstances.
    • However, staff may allow music-playing at their discretion. Never play music if the audio quality is low and/or various players are against it.
  6. Don't provide any misinformation about our community.
  7. Do not threaten to damage/hack our servers.
  8. Do not argue with staff.
    • If you have a complaint then post it on the forums, contact the staff member, or contact the proper sources privately.
    • Do not start pointless arguments with staff.
    • This also goes for regular players too; do not start pointless arguments.
  9. Do not lie to staff.
  10. Revealing staff are online is an offense.
    • (Unless they have already made themselves known.)
III. Other rulings
  1. Staff have final say in the interpretation of any rule
    • Staff reserve the right to add or amend rules at any time to close loopholes or to keep the server a friendly and fair place.
  2. You may not encourage players to break the rules.
    • Offering credit rewards for rule-breaking will result in an instant ban.
  3. We discourage idling on combat-focused servers (with an autobalance system, e.g. Orange & 2Fort) for an extended period of time.
    • Go to Spectator if you need to AFK.
  4. On Achievement Engineer (achievement_engineer), map exploiting is allowed due to the map’s unbalanced design (e.g. Opening doors from the outside).
    • This does not include Teleporters leading into spawn or any other form of exploit like aimbot.

General Rules Changelog - 24/12/2019
  • Minor fixes with grammar and added bulleting.
  • Seperated the rules into three categories: General offenses, Communication offenses, and Other rulings.
General offenses:
  • Added "This includes exploiting maps and/or server plug-ins." to the rule against exploits.
  • "No pornographic or offensive sprays." -> "No NSFW sprays or Objectors (e.g. pornographic, offensive, etc.) / NSFW (“Not safe for work”) - Images, videos, or some other form of Internet post that wouldn't be appropriate for workplace viewing. / Sharing pornographic content in chat is neither allowed."
    • This means that egregious, sexual content in chat will not be allowed.
  • Linked the full Spawncamp Rules to the spawn camp rule.
Communication offenses:
  • Added "This includes any use of slurs or variants on slurs." to the rule against hate speech.
    • We will no longer tolerate any use of homophobic slurs (e.g. the f-slur).
  • Combined the mic and chat-spam rule and added a ruling on playing music to them.
    • "However, staff may allow music-playing at their discretion. Never play music if the audio quality is low and/or various players are against it."
  • Combined the rules against arguing with staff.
  • Added the link to the Staff List under the rule against arguing with staff so players know who they may file complaints to.
  • Moved the rule against arguing with other players to be under this.
Other rulings:
  • Added a rule against encouraging players to break rules.
    • "You may not encourage players to break the rules. / Offering credit rewards for rule-breaking will result in an instant ban."
  • Added a rule clarifying that exploiting is allowed on achievement_engineer.
