Updated as of 08/02/2020
Participation in our Discord server constitutes agreement to the following guidelines, which apply to posts, private messaging, and any other content on this server and participation in general.
The live nature of discussions in this community makes it difficult for staff to catch every violation of these rules. If you believe that someone has violated our User Guidelines, please make use of Discord's private messaging system by messaging one of the staff members to bring the possible violation to the attention of staff. During your report, you should mention what violation you believe has been made or provide further information for staff to review. Please do not respond to a violation personally, as you may aggravate the situation and possibly violate our guidelines yourself. Please do not discuss punishments issued on others.
We will not tolerate public discussions of punishments issued on others or yourself. If you want to dispute a punishment, you will need to consult it privately with the Community Team or Community Manager.
Bans on Discord are customarily carried over to the community forums, depending on the severity of the infraction. If it has not, be on your best. It typically indicates a more lenient punishment.
Please do not spam-@ staff members just for the purpose of doing so. We're all extremely occupied with developing the game, so keep it to a minimum.
The Administrators and Moderators reserve the rights to delete, mute, kick, ban and edit posts for anyone who violates or fails to observe any of the rules below. Any continuous violation of these rules will result in a permanent ban of their account. The Administrators and Moderators will apply appropriate measures depending on the effect of the rules that have been violated. For the benefit of all members, there is a zero-tolerance on spamming, which will result in an immediate ban of the member and his/her account.
