Important
***Rules are subject to change at any time.

***Staff will determine the punishment based on the rule(s) broken!
***Repeats of offenses may result in more severe punishments!!!
***If you have an !warn active for 2 rules and get banned you will be banned for both and their lengths will stack!
***For Username violations you will be punished as such: asked to change username, kick if the name is not changed after 1 round (5 min), !warn, ban 6-16 hours
***All rules not counting the advertisement rule affect text hats!


General Rules:

1. No cheating/hacking/exploiting.
In most cases our anti-cheat system will pick it up and automatically kick the offender. However, if the user continues to connect and be kicked by the anti-cheat they will be punished accordingly.

Exploiting is abusing things overlooked by map developers or other systems, such as, glitches, clipping, EXP/Perk exploits, illegal spots, ect.

Hacking/Cheating: If confirmed hacking/cheating, permanent ban.


2. Please use English, unless it's a basic phrase.
Smaller phrases such as greetings are allowed. On larger phrases, if a staff asks you to translate, then please do so.

Use of other languages to bypass other rules will result more-severe punishments!


3. Do not harass other players in an intended/mean/disrespectful manner.
If you are being mean to a person and they tell you to stop or they ask staff to tell you to stop, then just stop. Being mean in a jokingly way is okay as long as the person understands it's a joke.

This includes sensitive topics like, but not limited to, rape and suicide. Usernames that target specific players in a disrespectful way are not allowed though.

Please note: Use of in server private messages can still be seen by server staff, and harassment via PM is equally unacceptable.


4. Do not mic/chat spam.
Things such making noises, singing, or other things that annoy a majority of the team, count as mic spam. Text spam is repeated use of the same general phrase.

Chat messages, binds, or other chatbox based things being used repeatedly in a short time frame are effected by this rule.

Please note: This includes stating a certain phrase players are annoyed by and misusing admin chat as a non-staff. Be courteous to others, and please don't use all-caps all the time, it's considered "yelling".


5. Do not advertise other gmod servers/other communities.
This would be posting things like chat messages or using voice chat to encourage other players to join another server in Gmod or another server group/community whether it's of similar gamemodes or not.

Please Note:

Clan tags are allowed. Examples: “[RG] Rucksack”, “[CG] Averion”, similar, and etc.

However, Text Hats are no-longer allowed.


6. No racism/sexism.
Do not put down anyone for being a certain race, ethnicity, and/or gender. Refrain from using "those words", slurs, and any stereotypical phrase that would be considered racist or sexist. Only you can safely check your privilege.

Please Note: This includes being in one's username!


7. Do not post inappropriate sprays.
Things such as pornographic content, text sprays that violate other rules or other things that may offend players are considered "inappropriate".


8. Do not impersonate other players.
This rule regards intentionally changing your name to appear as someone you’re not as a means to annoy and/or appear as said “person”.

Please note: If the other person doesn't care, this rule does not come into effect. Also, if a name is common on the server and 2 players have it then it is not breaking this rule.


9. Do not evade bans/dodge punishments.
Evading/dodging includes: Disconnecting then reconnecting while muted/gaged, using paid rank (or even hired rank) powers to ungag or other ways of avoiding things.


10. Stay out of an admin's business.
If staff are dealing with a situation, and did not directly ask for your input, please stay out of it. If staff need your help and/or input in a situation, they will ask you.


11. Don’t dispute punishments on the server.
If you feel like a punishment was unfair, fill out an appeal/report it to management, on-server disputes will not be tolerated.


12. Do not abuse the !request command
Self-explantory rule, !request is designed for reports, not whatever nasty opinion you have of a staff member or player.


13. Do not ghost
Ghosting is defined as actively giving away a players location or what a prop is, as a dead hunter or dead prop in a way that other hunters can hear it. A dead prop using the server wide text chat or a dead hunter just using any form of communication. This includes third party items like Skype or Discord.

False-ghosting is O.K. to an extent, however, using “false-ghosting” to cover real ghosting will result in a more-severe punishment!

Please note: Excessive false-ghosting isn't acceptable, and may result in a temporary mute.

If you give yourself away, it’s not ghosting, and that’s your own fault.


14. Do not excessively delay rounds
Delaying is any action that prolongs the round for no reason. Such as shooting words, designs, or other things into walls, running around doing nothing, standing around/idling (see AFK rule), or other acts that are deemed to be "unproductive" by the gamemode rules.

Please note: Props hiding or remaining in one area will not violate this rule even if they are the last one alive. Along with this, the allowed period of "delay" is 30 seconds.


15. Do not encourage rule breaking
Encouraging others to break the rules is just as bad as breaking them yourself. If they end up breaking the rule (or you say in general and someone does) you will be punished along with them. Even if they don’t, you will still be punished accordingly.
