Terms & Conditions

 

Being part of our community suggests that you automatically accept the rules & guidelines of the network. Attempting to break these rules can give you a suspension.

 

We have a new punishment system. It is a ladder system in the order:

Warn – Kick – Mute – Temp Ban – Ban – IP Ban

 The staff member will move up the ladder for each time you commit an offence. They may, however, decide to change this slightly for a punishment which fits your case best.

The punishment is at their discretion and should not be questioned.

Create an appeal if you feel you have been treated incorrectly.
