Player Abuse / Harassment

Post#1 » Fri Jul 17, 2015 8:28 pm

Hey Guys & Gals,
Just letting you know, i just manage the server, i don’t get involved in the politics in-game, with that said....

If other players are verbally abusing others through in-game chat which have nothing to do with the game, that’s called harassment and as its not good for the community and server i will deal with it.

Consider this a warning, the only one you get ... if i get reports of harassment people will be banned,

Also please don’t report players because they said something bad .. this is just a game and ignore what they say and they will go away, Only report players who are constantly attacking you through chat.
If players are talking about others which aren’t on the server .... this is fine, but keep it on the server and don’t go repeating what they say.. it helps no one and causes more tension... remember they're just WORDS.

Definition of Harassment: To continually message a player in chat or on the forums negative or messages implied to be negative to anger the player.

Definition of Continually: While seeing the player online (or offline) only you engage in a conversation (in game or in the forums) with its sole purpose to anger the player.

Caveats: If the "Harasser"also discussed in game mechanics, tips or strategy with the person being harassed, this negates the harassment unless it makes up the majority of conversations.

Banter: depending on context, will be subject to admins' discretion on whether it is harassment.
