PostSubject: Solace Rules   Sun Dec 27, 2015 5:38 pm

1. Flaming, Disrespect, and Inappropriate Content

Solace is composed of various amounts of backgrounds to their religion, race, morals etc., we will not tolerate the disrespect, flame, and disrespect of ANY religion, race, morals and so forth. Excessive flame is dealt with accordingly (also realize that from person to person that he/she will take the insult differently than someone else would). The punishment for such acts can vary from a warning to a ban on the server.

a. The use of any flaming, disrespect, etc., towards any person, religion, race, morals in-game is against our rules. We have a language filter system but some players may be willing to turn it off which doesn't allow players to break this rule either in public chat, clan chat, and the yell system.

b. The purpose of the Solace's "Help chat" clan chat is to help new or returning players with things they may need while they play. This means that the topic of discussion within the chat should be kept appropriate at all times. It is not expected that players stay strictly on the topic of Solace, as they can deviate in general discussion, but any inappropriate discussion or language used in this chat will be punished harsher here. It is recommended that if players would like to discuss other things then please do so in PM's or in another clan chat, and at their own discretion.

c. While a staff member is responding to a ::help request, it is expected that players respect the staff members obligations and allow them to perform their duties. Disturbing, disrupting or interfering with their obligations will result in immediate punishment, and this applies to all locations. This means that if a staff member is responding to a help request in the wilderness, for example, they are granted amnesty and NOT allowed to be attacked whatsoever. This includes and is not limited to until they're out of the wilderness, NOT to be teleblocked and so on.

d. This server is meant for a friendly, safe, and clean environment. We do not want to have content on the server such as advertising such things, discussing such things that would be deemed inappropriate. This being said, members who have said something (whether it be on the chatbox, clan-chat, or over yell), members who have inappropriate usernames etc., will be dealt with. At the discretion of the staff member, he/she has the authority to punish a member on such matters immediately without warning only under extreme circumstances. As for members with deemed inappropriate usernames will be warned and then banned from playing on that account if he/she decides to not change the username.

e. Material that can somehow insult women, and males alike is not allowed. This includes material such as half-naked women, men and media of such inappropriate acts (pornographic videos itself). Any reference to pornographic websites or any content that can be considered inappropriate is not allowed in-game and will be dealt with accordingly.


2. Advertising

The advertisement of another community that acts as a direct competitor to Solace (RSPS') is strictly disallowed and not tolerated whatsoever. The punishment is a permanent ban from the forums and server with NO chance of appeal, and ever returning to Solace.

a. Common known links (e.g. MoparScape, Rune-Server, and YouTube) is fine and will be commonly permitted. Please note that the link on the website advertised must NOT lead to another community (to bypass the advertisement rule and in hopes that we don't catch it).

b. Discussing other active servers both ingame and on the forums is strictly prohibited, this is just a clarification from the main rule.


3. Spamming

Spamming on the server will not be permitted, acts of such feats will be acted upon accordingly by the staff members of Solace. We should all be acting as mature as we can while on Solace and respect others wishes as well, those who continue to do such feats will be removed from Solace if needed.

a. Yell command should NOT be abused in ANY fashion. A member's rights to use the command can very well be revoked for a certain amount of time to permanent. If anything, take a few seconds to minutes before sending another message of Yell. It is not a right.

b. Auto-Typers are allowed but are not to be abused, the timer MUST be set to at least fifteen (15) seconds between each message. You always need to be present, If a staff member asks you to stop due to spam, you must comply. There are circumstances where an auto-typer may be inappropriate, that is for a staff member to decide.

c. Spamming can be from text, trading, casting spells, or anything else that can flood a chatbox, it does not have to be visible by everyone. And if a member finds it disruptive enough then he/she has the right to report you. You will be dealt with accordingly based on what you have done but let ie be known that you will be punished. There's no reason to do such a thing and disrupt a member's gameplay.

d. Advertising your clan chat or livestream is only permitted every 10 minutes, you will be warned once.


4. Misleading Links, Hacking, DDOS Threats

Misleading links are never allowed on the forums or advertised on the server. If the common link that is allowed does not lead to where it the member states it leads to can result in a permanent removal from the community. If a member is linking someone to Google, we expect it to open-up to Google.

Hacking on the server and forum is never and will never be condoned on this community. You will be permanently removed from the community without further hesitation. We take the privacy of others serious here, do not test us on this.

Threatening a member with anything that may danger their reputation, life, security or personal information will result in an immediate termination of all accounts and removal from the community. This includes situations like DDOS threats, it's completely unacceptable.

5. Punishment Evasion

Punishment handed out towards members are the sole reason as to why a community remains stable, we expect our punishments handed out to be taken serious (especially if you feel like you deserve a second chance to being apart of this community - again). Should you evade a punishment then expect to be punished further and harsher after the during/after the initial punishment. There is no reason to cause a scene with a punishment so you will be dealt with.

6. Macroing/Third-Party Software

Macroing is the use of third party software that allows a member to obtain levels, money and so forth a lot easier than others that are working on it fairly. We do not tolerate this and can result in a medium punishment to a severe one. Such things include auto-clickers, auto-walkers, cheat clients etc.



7. Real World Trading (RWT)

Purchasing, selling, trading goods, or services (accounts, real life items, RSGP, Microsoft points, riot points, other private server items for Solace items etc.) is strictly forbidden. The act of such things is the result of being warned to immediately being removed from the community permanently at the discretion of the staff team. And as a side note, members are not allowed to sell or giveaway their account for anything; no matter the case.


8. Encouraging Others to Break Rules

If a player asks another player to do something that is against the rules, whether that player knows it's against the rules or not, that's considered encouraging others to break the rules. It is every member's responsibility to know and understand the rules before playing.


9. Bug Abuse

The abuse of a bug, glitch, or exploit is strictly prohibited in this community. Members who are caught in doing-so will be permanently removed from the community at the discretion of the administration team. We want to make sure that Solace is a safe, trouble-free environment to enjoy, and have fun - abusing such things does that do that for us. We request that all members who find these are to report them in the bug report board.

a. Finding loopholes, in regards to the rules, in which the main objective is to benefit yourself, is strictly prohibited. If you do find a loophole, you must report it immediately to a staff member through a PM. If you are caught abusing a loophole, much like a bug, you will be banned/IP banned based on the severity.

b. The process of obtaining items from other iron men through kill trading is disallowed. The purpose of the iron man game-mode is to prevent player trading. There are no excuses for breaking this rule, as Solace offers the ability to change your game mode (if you dislike the iron man disadvantage of being unable to trade).

c. Weapons game; with the change of how much gold you receive per round of this minigame, and although multi logging is allowed, you are no longer allowed to take more than one account to weapons game in order to start it to prevent any gold farming by individuals. This will generally only result in a warning as it is a new rule, but if repeated will result in an account ban.


10. Scamming

Scamming members for real life money, Solace GP (gold coins) and other forms of scams is not tolerated on Solace (luring, any form of doubling money, ...). All members are at the risk of a medium punishment (e.g. temporary jail or ban) to a severe punishment (e.g. permanent removal from the community) at the discretion of the staff member and/or administration team. All members should respect each other, and not scam - it's immature and not worth the time, simply do not do it and we will not hand out the punishment.

a. We do not refund items for scam attempts that involve players giving items to other players in return for 'doubled' or any form of increased profit made by giving your items to other players. We as a staff team do not allow doubling money but cannot stop members from doing-so, it is your responsibility to report the member attempting to do it and not trust them in the first place.

b. If a player attempts to retract donations they have made to the server, they will be permanently banned. When you donate to the server, you are making a donation; NOT a purchase. These donations are what help keep the server online; retracting them can severely harm the stability of the server, which is equal to a DDoS threat. If you feel unsatisfied with a recent donation you've made, you can post a topic in the support board.

11. Account Sharing

Any form of account sharing is against our server rules. It is a player's responsibility to keep their account secure and be the sole owner of the account. If players are found attempting to share accounts in any form, the account that was 'shared' will be banned and all items on that account that may have be exchanged from players sharing the account will not be refunded.

12. Player-Versus-Monster (PVM)

a. Safespotting; although this sub-rule will usually not result in an IP-ban, unless abused after several warnings and an initial ban, it is strictly not allowed if the monster drops something of significant value. This mainly refers to bosses, but does not exclude other monsters. An example of a non-boss monster, in which safespotting is not allowed, is ice strykewyrms. These are not bosses, but they drop korasi's sword and staff of light.

b. Multi-logging is disallowed during PVM activities. The simple factor of being able to multi-log (as an example) during a boss is unacceptable and unfair. This includes all NPC's around Solace, no matter the case; you will be punished. You will be warned and at the discretion of staff team, you will be warned and/or temporary banned to permanently being banned from the server.

13. Player-Versus-Player (PVP)(PVM)

The general rule of thumb for PVP is that there are not a big amount of rules for PVP because we do not want to have to govern members that do so. The wild is where most members are able to get-away from rules and have most of their fun, however, we have few and very specific rules that we ask all members to follow. The biggest one is to respect all members as equals and be courteous as one would expected to be.

a. Farming PK points is strictly prohibited, and it involves using a friend or ally to kill solely for the points. The most common method of PK point farming is allowing yourself to die without putting up a fight with a risk of 76k or above, resulting in the attacker gaining easy points. This rule applies to anyone who is involved. If caught, the punishment is up-to a point toggle (disallowing ever accumulating points), and if found on another account doing-so a temporary to permanent ban.

b. Luring another member is not what we want from members. It's not courteous and honorable, and we ask the simple request from members to not do it. Should a member fail to understand this and do-so, he/she will face up-to (and at the discretion of the staff member) a temporary mute, temporary ban, or permanent removal from the server.

c. Multi-logging for an unfair advantage in the wild is completely against the rules. This can include but not limited to using one character to tele-block and the other to mage, range, melee etc., this is not necessary and will be punished. You will be warned and then be given a temporary to permanent ban at the discretion of the staff team.


**********************************************************************************************************


1. Inappropriate Language

Solace is composed of various amounts of backgrounds to their religion, race, morals etc., we will not tolerate the disrespect, flame, and disrespect of ANY religion, race, morals and so forth. Excessive flame is dealt with accordingly (also realize that from person to person that he/she will take the insult differently than someone else would). The punishment for such acts can vary from a warning to a ban on the forums/server.

a. 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 also be considered harassment and disrespect.

b. The use of any form of flaming, disrespect, swearing etc., towards any person, religion, race, morals in-game is against our rules. We have a language filter system but some players may be willing to turn it off which doesn't allow players to break this rule either in public chat or in clan chats, yell etc.


2. Advertising


The advertisement of another community that acts as a direct competitor to Solace (RSPS') is strictly disallowed and not tolerated whatsoever. The punishment is a permanent ban from the forums and server with NO chance of appeal, and ever returning to Solace.

a. Common known links (e.g. MoparScape, Rune-Server, and YouTube) is fine and will be commonly permitted. Please note that the link on the website advertised must NOT lead to another community (to bypass the advertisement rule and in hopes that we don't catch it).

b. Discussing other active servers both ingame and on the forums is strictly prohibited, this is just a clarification from the main rule.



3. Inappropriate Content

Material that can somehow insult women, and males alike is not allowed on the forums. This includes material such as half-naked women, men and media of such inappropriate acts (pornographic videos itself). 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 is 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 over the website for our younger audience regardless if they know about it. This isn't what this community is for so keep it off.

a. 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.


4. Spamming


Posts that do not contribute to the thread is considered spam and will be dealt with as the discretion of the staff member, however, this rule has been broken down into sub-rules:

a. Multi-posting is the act of making multiple consecutive posts in one thread when the posts could have all been included with the first one. Multi-posting can be avoided by using the multiquote and edit features. The staff team would prefer that members use the bump feature that has been installed on the forum in cases when it can be used.

b. Grave digging is considered spam and is the act of posting on threads in which the last post is at least 14 days old (two weeks). The ONLY reason a member should be posting on a dead thread is if he/she is adding something worthwhile to the thread itself. This rule does not apply to topics that are pinned as they are already at the top of the board.

c. Trolling is not tolerated on the forums is not necessary and messy to deal with. Just don't do it, you will be punished and that'll be the end of it.

d. Posting in the correct section and board is required at all times. If a member should not know where something goes, please contact a member of the community or someone apart of the staff team.

e. Thread Hijacking primarily applies to the market board of the forums. It is the act of posting on a sale thread (that is not yours) and selling items at a cheaper price or buying items at a higher price. This can result in a warning to not being able to post in the board at all.

f. Posts that do not contribute to the OP (original post) or general topic is considered spam.

g. Posting one-word responses towards a thread whether it counts against your overall post count is disallowed on the forums (excluding the spam board). It causes unnecessary clutter on the forums where we have to go over and clean. There's no reason for it and would much rather prefer members to thoroughly add onto their post(s).


5. Misleading Links, Hacking, Threats

Misleading links are never allowed on the forums, or advertised on the server. If the common link that is allowed does not lead to where it the member states it leads to can result in a permanent removal from the community. If a member is linking someone to Google, we expect it to open-up to Google.

Hacking on the server and forums is NEVER allowed nor tolerated on the community. You will be permanently removed from the community without further hesitation.

Threatening a member with anything that may danger their reputation, life, security of personal information etc., will result in an immediate termination of all accounts and removal from the community. This includes situations like DDOS threats, it's completely unacceptable.

6. Punishment Evasion


Punishment handed out towards members are the sole reason as to why a community remains stable, we expect our punishments handed out to be taken serious (especially if you feel like you deserve a second chance to being apart of this community - again). Should you evade a punishment then expect to be punished further and harsher after the during/after the initial punishment. There is no reason to cause a scene with a punishment so you will be dealt with.

7. Real World Trading (RWT)


Purchasing, selling, trading goods, or services (accounts, real life items, RSGP, Microsoft points, riot points, other private server items for Solace items etc.) is strictly forbidden. The act of such things is the result of being warned to immediately being removed from the community permanently at the discretion of the staff team. And as a side note, members are not allowed to sell or giveaway their account for anything; no matter the case.


8. Encouraging Others to Break Rules



If a player asks another player to do something that is against the rules, whether that player knows it's against the rules or not, that's considered encouraging others to break the rules. It is every member's responsibility to know and understand the rules before playing.


9. Reputation System


The reputation system is meant for contributing content that is posted around the community, this system should not be abused by either giving yourself reputation with making another account, requesting reputation directly and indirectly and so on. Those who break this rule is subject to a reputation reset, lock, and even an infraction. If caught multiple time it will result in a temporary/permanent ban!



10. Shoutbox


The shoutbox is a right, it's something that can be taken away from anyone very easily than assumed. Be sure to be mature, act as intellectual, reserved as possible otherwise face the consequences and have your rights revoked from the shoutbox.

a. Flaming others in the shoutbox follows rule one (1) word-for-word, however, do note that the punishments here can be harsher because of the fact that most new members, new visitors etc., look here for the general attitude, doings etc., of a community.

b. Staff impersonation is disallowed and strictly forbidden. You will be removed from the shoutbox and forum all together. At the discretion of the staff, you may be typically removed from the server as well.

c. Advertisement in the shoutbox follows rule two (2) completely and we have a zero tolerance policy for such things. You will be completely removed from the community both server and forum alike.

d. Flooding the shoutbox to be disruptive, disrespectful etc., is unacceptable. Your rights to the shoutbox will be removed temporarily or removed completely all together.
