    These are the official list of the rules for all PF platforms. 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.
    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. Example is " i e n j o y a n n o y i n g e v e r y o n e i p o s s i b l y c a n"
    Staff are to use their best judgement for any of these offenses.


    Mentioning Server Names
    Punishment:
    First offense: Warning
    Second offense: 15m mute
    Third offense: 1h mute
    Mentioning server names is not as serve as advertising, although it still isn't allowed. The only server that you are allowed to mention is very big, well known servers and you're only allowed to mention these servers via private chat. Also, the phrase "Do you want to go play [mini-game]" is not allowed as it indirectly advertises for players to go play on other servers.

    Punishment:
    First offense: 1h Mute
    Second offense: 3h Mute
    Third offense: 1d Ban
    This rule includes offences related to bullying, discrimination, and harassment. There is a strict zero-tolerance for any forms of the above and those caught in violation will be handled accordingly. Staff members are trained to settle all player disrespect cases in a fair matter; however, if you feel the situation was misinterpreted then we invite you to explain this in your appeal here. Please note that these punishment lengths are guidelines but are often modified by staff members based on the level of disrespect.
