[Official] Forum Rules V1

Recommended Posts



1. Inappropriate Language 

Many communities are composed of different backgrounds and beliefs. As such, this community is composed of different beliefs, morals, sexual orientations etc., and we take the value of equality seriously. Remember that each person will take an insult differently depending on these values.

Topics, posts, PMs etc., that are directed at a single member, or group, to either defame them of their reputation, character or to simply insult, flame them directly etc., will result in infractions or a ban from the forum.



2. Inappropriate Content:

Material that can somehow insult women and men alike will not be allowed on the forums. This includes material such as half-naked women/men and media of such inappropriate acts (pornographic videos etc.). This also includes text-based material in our threads, posts, avatars, profile page etc., and should the rule be broken - he/she will face a permanent removal from the community altogether.

Inappropriate Content that provides media of drug use, bad behavior, and other various forms of content that are deemed inappropriate (at the discretion of the staff member) will be removed and enforced. This is not a community for such things and we do not want to advertise this on the website for our younger audience regardless if they know about it. This isn't what this community is for so keep it off.

We will not tolerate inappropriate names that contain any vulgar language, hate crime, relationship to pornographic material, impersonations (mod, admin, owner etc.) or anything that would be considered inappropriate of any sort. Those who fail to comply with this rule will be requested to choose another username by a staff member (the member will have 24 hours to respond). After he or she has not responded or refused the change, their IP will be banned and the account deleted.



3. Advertising

Advertising another RSPS related community is strictly forbidden and will result in permanent removal of the advertisement along with a Permanent Ban. There will be no chance of appeal! 

Commonly known links (e.g. Rune-Server, Runelocus, and YouTube) are fine and will be commonly permitted. Links are expected to be to advertise directly to where they say they're going (e.g. advertising a YouTube link, and then it links to a whole new site; no matter if it's harmful or not).



4. Spamming

Posts that do not contribute to the topic or the quoted text in that is in some form keeping to the main post is considered spam, this rule has been broken down though, read below:

a. Posts that consist of a single word (e.g. "support") will be considered spamming on the forums and a warning or infraction will be given per the staff's discretion. The exception to this rule are the boards that do not give an increase in posts (announcements, staff updates, updates, and spam).

b. Grave digging is the act of posting in a "dead thread", which is a thread that was not posted in for over fourteen (14) days. Unless you're posting useful information towards the topic at hand, don't do it.

c. Bumping will be allowed on a topic (by the author) once every day.

d. Posting in the correct section helps us keep a nice, sleek looking forum at all times. Failure to do so causes them to look cluttered. If the player continues to post in the incorrect section after being warned, a punishment will be handed out.



5. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats

Misleading links are never allowed on the server, we expect links to open up to as what it was advertised for. Failure to comply with this rule will result in a permanent removal from the community.

Hacking in any shape or form will result in a permanent removal from the community, simply put.

Threatening members that will put their life, security, and reputation at risk will result in a permanent removal from the community.



6. Punishment Evasion

Punishments that are handed out by a staff member are one of the reasons communities maintain a balanced environment. Punishments that are evaded are not going to be taken lightly. If you feel like you deserve another chance then take it seriously and quickly make an appeal; don't make a scene.
