PostSubject: Rules of Showtime-RO   Fri May 28, 2010 3:19 pm

Remember that these rules are not meant to realise a dictator like play environment, but to have a good, nice and fun play environment. Do realise that breaking any of these rules will lead to the punishment. The Punishment is done by the discretion of the GMs (Game Masters) or Polices. These rules apply to ShowtimeRO only.

The rules have been divided into the following sections:
1. General Behaviour
2. Relationship With Others
3. War of Emperium
4. Player vs Player
5. Server Regulations

1. General Behaviour
A. Do not beg for items, zeny or anything else.
Description: You start dealing/asking for items/zeny/stuff to somebody.
Punishment: 20 minutes mute, 2 hours jail
B. Advertising for other servers is strictly forbidden (including IPs or websites).
Description: Using the Broadcast, or making a chatroom, or spamming chats to advertise another server.
C. Do not abuse the BC (Broadcasting).
Description: Using the Broadcaster NPC's function to broadcast stuff that has nothing to do with trading, recruiting or looking for someone. However congratulating someone, on his/her birthday is allowed.
E. Avoid creating unreasonable names: avoid using symbols or inappropriate names.
Description: Offensive name. .
F. As a result from rule number 1.E, no name changes will be granted.
G. No gender changes will be granted.
H. No LOST/SCAMMED/HACKED items will be given back!
Description: Such cases often happen due to players being carefree and giving out their passwords or not paying attention to trades/vends. We will never interfere in such cases since it can lead to exploits. Nevertheless, it is possible to report a scammer or hacker with proofs (screenshots in most cases) and if justified he/she will get an account ban (time depending on the case but most certainly permanent for hackers).
I. We cannot replace everyone's lost items because of a server crash/rollback or restart.
Description: In case of an update, an announce is usually made beforehand giving you enough time to logout first. Many people tried to abuse the system by asking back items they didn't have. We therefore won't be giving back anything you claim. We apologize if you made an honest request.
J. Do not obstruct any NPCs. Doing so denies other players' use of the NPC.
Description: Putting your chatroom/shop in a 2-tiles range of an NPC.
K. No offensive representations are allowed! There are youths playing on the server! Offensive representations include, but are not limited to: Guild Emblems, Names, Party Names, Guild Names, Chatroom Names, Vend Names.
Description: Offensive, Guild Emblems, Party Names. Guild Names.
L. Abusing hotkeys to warp away from a battle is not allowed. If you're in a battle, fight until death. Don't try and just go and hit someone and then press the hotkey to warp away when you do some damage or running away from a battle when you know you can't kill someone.
Description: Warping away after hitting or using a skill.
2. Relationhips with others
A. Always be respectful to GMs. Insults or verbal harassement towards a GM won't be tolerated. Do not disrespect a GM by accusing him/her of cheating with his/her legit or abusing his/her powers. If you have a good reason to report a GM, just do it here without spreading useless rumours. That won't be tolerated.
