Forum Rules Ranting; All negative threads and threads consisting of but not restricted to ranting/complaining are bound to the feedback section. Please post in the appropriate section. Threads directed towards other players; Posting threads directed at or about other players is strictly forbidden. This includes but is not restricted to threads to discuss a certain user/their behavior, threads targeting/insulting/slandering other users and any kind of derogatory threads. Please use Private Messages if you wish to give somebody a message. Trolls; A "troll" is someone who intentionally and persistently posts inflammatory messages about sensitive topics to bait users into responding or provoke a confrontation. The staff’s time is too valuable to be spent on trolls. If you’ve come here to troll and waste our time, then you will be disposed of. The staff has more important things to deal with and cannot be bothered to waste their time with you. This server and forum is to entertain and educate, not be a playground to kids. Inappropriate Content; I hope I do not need to put this on here but I will anyway, posting any sort of violent, pornographic, or offensive content is not permitted. Spamming; All unnecessary and irrelevant posts and topics is considered spamming, plain and simple. The rule is broken down into four parts. 1) Singles: Creating topics/posts ANYWHERE with a single word, emoticon, or a strand of random numbers is considered spamming. 2) Grave-digging: When someone brings a “dead thread back to life” by posting on a very old thread. If this thread is more than 1 month (31 days), and a common thread (simple suggestions, feedback, rants, etc.) and someone decides to post on it, then it is grave-digging. 3) Bumping: Considered spamming in every section except “private” sections like Bug Reporting. It is simple, if your thread is good and should stay then other people will post relevant information and feedback on it. 4) Double posting on threads or making the same post in different boards is strictly prohibited and considered spam. Personal Information; Another rule I hope I don’t have to put out there but will anyway, posting anyone’s personal information without their permission is completely against the rules. Personal information is personal. This includes addresses (Home/Work/School/E-mail), phone numbers, pictures, videos, etc. Punishments are as follows; You will get warned twice before any further action is taken, remember these warnings are forever marked on your account and can always be seen by staff members. They do not vanish. After that we will restrict your account to being moderated, meaning when you post a thread it will not be made public unless a staff member has viewed it first verifying it is in compliance with the rules, the length of this punishment is to be determined by the staff member issuing the punishment. Following that you will be restricted from posting content period for a lengthy amount of time, again depends on the staff member issuing the punishment/severity of said situation. Then if you somehow manage to make your way to the last punishment or leak personal information, you will be banned from using this site. If your blatant disregard for these rules is bad enough it can result in an instant ban. Follow the rules as they have been stated above, these rules have been put in place to keep things running in a smooth and orderly fashion.
Here at Scape-War, staff are the face of the server; they represent what every player should strive to be. Staff members must always abide by certain rules. Act like a staff member Staff members are held to higher expectations than normal players, as they are the ones who represent the server; they must act professional at all times and not let anyone 'get under their skin'. Recall that the ignore list exists for a reason. Punishment is a last resort Staff members are given special privileges that regular players lack. Remember that these are privileges, and can be taken away at any time. If a staff member acts inappropriately towards anyone else or abuses their power, they will be reprimanded by staff with a higher rank. Be helpful Your primary job as an Scape-War staff member is to help our (new) players with any questions/problems related to the server. Do not ignore any player who asks for help, even if you dislike them. Regarding the Support rank The Support rank exists mainly to help (new) players with any questions/problems related to the server. They are currently allowed to mute other players, however this should only be used in the event of someone spamming/advertising on Scape-War. However, an exception can be made if two players are arguing in public/clan chat and they have been warned at least twice (first warning, final warning, mute). Regarding activity All staff members are required to be active within both the game and forums. If you are going to be offline longer than 4 days you will have to post and inactivity thread in the staff discussion section of the forums. Punishment logs Punishment logs must be filled in once a punishment has been carried out. This is the only way other members of the staff team can track who is supposed to be punished and why. If punishment logs aren’t filled in and it is found someone has been punished actions will be taken against the staff member. Afking I would also ask that all staff members log out when they are not playing the game as if you aren’t afk and someone is pming you without a reply it may relay the wrong message. Communication It is important that staff members are easy to contact. I would ask that you each check your forum mail box at least once per day. It would also be highly beneficial to have a microphone for staff meetings etc.
THE RULES 1. No offensive language You may not insult a person or a group of people, whether this be in-game, on the forums or outside Scape-War. This applies to both public and private conversations. 2. No scamming or luring You may not deceive a person in order to steal their items or abuse their trust through lies or false promises. If a person is found to scam an item from another person, they will get banned. Scams are always discovered through our extensive logging system, so don't even try. Luring is the act of making other people enter the wilderness, with the other party not being aware that they are at risk of losing their items when doing so. This is not allowed. Regarding the duel arena, a player who actively scams another player in the duel arena will be sanctioned, provided there is valid evidence. Make sure you are aware of the staking criteria and are comfortable staking your wealth. Exceptions where this will be voided are "Giveback" situations. This is where one party has either disconnected or has been affected by latency issues. This will also require valid evidence since this is something a player should be aware of before staking. If a player force logs themselves in order to try and use the "Giveback" notion, their account will be banned for scamming. 3. No hacking Nobody is allowed to access accounts without the authorization of the account holder, except administrators or staff members who have been authorized to do so by an administrator. Just like scamming, hacking an account is always discovered through our logs so it's pointless to try. Players who hacked an account will get banned. 4. No bug abuse It is forbidden to make use of a bug or glitch within the game to get free items or gain an advantage over other players. Any bugs must be reported to the staff team, you may even receive a reward for reporting it if it's an important bug. Same as scamming and hacking, because of our logs there is no point in trying to abuse a bug. Players will get a warning if they abuse a bug. If they fail to cooperate, they may recieve a ban. 5. No spam or disruptive content Pointless messages are not allowed on the forums or the yell channel. However, messages that most others find funny and aren't disrespectful are allowed. Disrupting one of the public chats or yell by quickly and repeatedly typing a message is also not allowed. Posting vulgar, offensive or sexual pictures on the forums counts as 'disruptive content' and may result in severe punishment. Double posting on the forums may be considered spam unless you had a good reason to bump up a thread. You're not allowed to yell about fake giveaways that would entice players to spam Private Message players or staff in-game. 6. No advertisement It is forbidden to advertise a website, product or RuneScape Private Server, both in-game and on the forums, unless you have received authorization from an administrator to do so. The administrator must have publicly posted his approval on the forums in order to prove you have been authorized to advertise. It is however allowed to publicly talk about common websites (youtube, twitter, reddit, twitch.tv, facebook, etc.) without prior approval, as long as it doesn't violate any other rules. 7. No botting Players caught using a bot, autoclicker or macro tool will be banned on sight. Using a modified client will also get you flagged as a bot. Gaining XP or items while being AFK falls under the same punishment. When your account is performing a task, you must always be present to respond to random events or when a staff member reaches out to you. 8. No real world trading It is forbidden to trade Scape-War items or accounts outside the game. It is also forbidden to trade other items or accounts from other sites on Scape-War. It is, however, allowed to trade in-game items for services you provide to others on the forums. 9. No negative and harmful behaviour It is not allowed to continually post, chat, or yell negative and non-constructive criticism, spread hatred, harass, or continually argue with others. We understand everyone has a bad day from time to time, but players who continually display negative behaviour may receive a punishment or even be permanently removed from the community. 10. No player or staff impersonation You may not pretend to be another real person or pretend to be related to another person if this is not true. 11. Obey staff members When a staff member tells you to do something, or to stop doing something, you must abide. If you believe you are being wrongfully treated by a staff member, then report this on the forums in the report a staff member section. However, if it turns out that the staff member was in their right, an additional punishment may be issued. 12. Giving away mass wealth Giving away mass wealth in instances such as "drop parties" and trading will not be acceptable. This is because this causes a large economy shift which will ultimately change prices. Mass giveaways are normally considered anything above 500 million GP or ITEMS. If you are enticed to do a mass giveaway, please notify a member of staff so they are able to assess the situation. 13. Using Alternate accounts (Alts): The following circumstances are where alternate accounts can't be used. If a player is using multiple accounts to attack the same boss monster then that will be counted as an offense. If a player is using multiple accounts in the Wilderness for whatever reason, the player will get both accounts banned depending on the severity of the infraction. Players are allowed to use multiple accounts during mini-games and skilling. 14. Account sharing: It is ilegal to share accounts with ANYONE this includes if you have the account holders permission to use the account. The reason this is being implimented is to avoid foul play within the wilderness or problems inlcuding transfering items that aren’t wanted to be given away and training stats that don’t want to be trained. It is also difficult for us to track account usage for security when more than one person has access to the account. We have full access to login logs so will be able to track this very easily, don't think you'll get away with it. Punishments: Breaking a rule may result in either a warning or a punishment. Punishments vary according to the nature of the offense. Repeat offenders will receive more severe punishments than people who haven't committed offenses before. Worst punishment: (IP-ban and permanent removal from the community) DDoS attacks Serious death threats Mass hacking Mass scamming Mass botting Attempting to shut down Scape-War Advertisement Continual negative and harmful attitude Repeatedly committing offenses listed below Severe punishment: (IP-mute, account ban or severe jail) Hacking Scamming Racism Posting disruptive content Threatening to DDoS Real world trading Gambling Botting Bug abuse Impersonation Refusing to cooperate with staff Negative and harmful attitude Repeatedly committing offenses listed below Mild punishment: (Mute or minor jail) Offensive language (flaming, baiting, insulting, hatred, â€¦) Trolling Repeatedly committing offences listed below Minor punishment: (Temporary mute) Spam Luring Negative attitude Vulgar language Best regards, - Steven
