Postby Phaiz » March 1st, 2014, 4:22 pm

Server and forum rules apply to everyone including admins.

-=General Server and Forum Rules=-

1. Spam - Any form of spam will not be tolerated. Mic spam, chat spam, bind spam.

2. Respect - Show respect to other players as well as staff members. As well as no arguing with staff, what we say is final

3. Racism/Sexism/Religion etc - No racism will be tolerated even if it is not meant to be used as racism, including slang, and sprays. Derogatory language meant to insult a persons sexuality (such as "faggot") will not be tolerated. Any sexism will not be tolerated as well. Discussions involving religion are acceptable as long as it is not harmful.

4. Hacks/Glitches/Exploits - Any use of hacks will result in a permanent ban from our servers. Glitches/Exploit are not allowed and will result in a ban.

5. Gate Exploits - Any form of harming people through the gates before the start of the round is not allowed. Any glitches used to block/trap people in spawn is not allowed. (Edit as of 2/13/16 - Bigdog - remove once patched.)
Examples - jarate, fire and mad milk

6. Friendly Players -Being a friendly player or goofing off before and after a round is acceptable. During the round it will be tolerated briefly.
Examples - sandvich heavy and friendly parties

7. Trolls - Troll engineers as well as other troll classes will not be tolerated. We want you to have fun, but you still need to help your team. (This will be handled at the staffs discretion)

8. Backcapping - Waiting on the last capture point in order to cap as soon as the first point is taken is not allowed. Backcapping is allowed on all Class Wars servers.

9. Staff Impersonation - Any attempt at impersonating a staff member is not allowed.
Example - having an Admin tag in your name

10. Sprays - Any spray that contains illegal content, racist content, "descriptive" porn*, harmful religious content or is intended to damage Skiver will not be allowed.**

11. Voteabuse - Votebanning, kicking or silencing a player who is not breaking any rules may result in you being silenced

12. Reporter Abuse - Abusing the player reporting system can result in you being silenced

13. Threats - Any threats made towards individuals or our servers will be met with an instant and permanent ban. This includes "real-life threats" such as threatening to find out where someone lives in order to hurt them. This also includes any threats directed towards any of our servers (game servers and/or web servers) such as threatening to DDoS or DoS one or more of our servers. Other uses of this rule will be enforced when required.

-=TF2 Class Warfare Server Rules=-

All regular server rules apply as well as:

1. Spawn Camping - (This is specific to Red Engineers) Building sentries directly outside of the spawn rooms, setup area gates, in the trench (Dustbowl stage 2) as well as building sentries inside of the Blu setup area (Dustbowl stage 3) is not allowed. Building anywhere else is allowed. Offenders will have their buildings destroyed if warnings are ignored, followed by further action if needed.

2. Classwars Specific Exploits/Bugs -

------------------

Note: Rules can change at anytime and it is your responsibility to be aware of any changes to the above rules.
If any rule is unclear to you or if you simply have a question, please ask any staff member.


*"Descriptive" is defined as genitalia (male or female). Anything above the waist is still allowed.

**Nude sprays not considered as "descriptive", or any sprays not covered in the Server Rules, are not against any rules at this time provided the content is not illegal in any US state where our servers are hosted. "Team Fortress 2" is rated Mature . If you are a parent or guardian of any minor who willingly visits our websites or servers, you are responsible for any content they may come into contact with and thus "Skiver" or its' administration will not be held liable or be required to take corrective action under any circumstance. Should there be any situation unfold not covered under this post, please contact the administrator.

No one, myself included, is a fan of numerous rules when it comes to gaming however in order to remain as legitimate and transparent as possible we must have these in place


Revised 2-3-16 - Doge: Gate exploit added.

Rule #8 has been updated

Back capping is now allowed on both Class Wars servers, however it is still not allowed on regular servers.
