If you’re feeling uncertain on if something is allowed or not, please contact a staff member and they will be able to assist you accordingly. Rules are subject to change at any given time, so please make sure to regularly check for any changes.

The same applies to signs, books and more. Chat Disruption Punishment: First offense: Warning Second offense: 15m mute Third offense: 1h mute Spamming - Spamming is the repetition of words or phrases in a manner which floods the chat. Whilst staff members are informed to use their best judgement regarding this rule, the generic rule of thumb is three repetitions within five seconds. Character spam - Character spam is the succession of letters, numbers or symbols in an unnecessary manner. Examples of this violation include “Who can I tpa to??????????” and “Meeeeeeeeeee”. Capital letters - Users posting an extreme or unnecessary amount of capitalized letters (in a row) in their messages. Examples is “HEY HOW’S THE WEATHER TODAY” Spacing between letters - Excessive spacing between letters is highly unnecessary and causes flood within the chat.
