1. Communication

1.1 Inappropriate Language and Flaming 
Topics, posts, PMs etc., that are directed at a single member, or group, to either defame them of their reputation, character or to simply insult, flame them directly etc., will also be considered harassment and disrespect. Since this is a simple rule, the first punishment will be two infractions the first time, next will be three, and the last will be a permanent ban from the forums.

1.2. Racism
Racism and Religious Intolerance found on Pre-Scape will not be tolerated at all. If you are found being Racist or religiously intolerant you will be banned. This is both illegal in the real world, and we will follow the laws. Racism and Religious Intolerance will not be tolerated and handled immediately.

 

2. Post etiquette

2.1 Spamming
Spamming a lot just to gain post count.
Posting content irrelevant to the topic.
Posts that consist of single word (e.g "nice") which is not relevant to the topic in question will be considered spamming on the forums and a warning or infraction will be given per the staff's discretion; emoticons and pictures do not count as words. Videos and pictures are the only exceptions of this in their respective sections. Jibberish such as "asuhfunweufj" is also considered spam and will lead to a bigger punishment than stated above. This is not acceptable and your posts will be removed and you will be punished accordingly

2.2 Grave digging
When you post in a "dead thread", which is a thread that was not posted in for over 14 days.

2.3 Trolling
Trolling is not accepted on these forums, it's idiotic and immature, we do not accept this behavior and the member is eligible to be infracted on the spot depending on the staff member

2.4 Posting in the correct board or section
This is to be done at all times, a little infraction that WILL expire could be handed out if excessive posting in the wrong board or section is done.

2.5 Misleading Links
Misleading links are to never be posted on the forums, if posting a link to a YouTube video; we expect it to lead to YouTube. Otherwise your account will face action pertaining to being permanently banned from the forums.

2.6 Threatening
Threatening members with ANYTHING will be an instant-automatic ban from Pre-Scape FOREVER! You will NOT do such acts and it will NOT be tolerated.

2.7 Bumping Topics 
Bumping topics that are older than 14 days old or two weeks will not be allowed. We do not want people posting under topics that have been bumped illegally. This makes the person who commented look as if they were grave digging, which is also not allowed.

 

3. Forum accounts

3.1 Reputation
Cheating the amount of likes that has been given to a user will not be tolerated, the member will have his/her's likes amount restarted or locked.

3.1.2 Self-Repping
Self-Repping will be dealt with by resetting the vouches on both accounts and suspending them for at least 24 hours depending on staff member.

3.1.3 Requesting reputation/likes
Requesting reputation/likes is not allowed. Doing this can lead to restarting or locking the member's reputation points.

3.2 Vouches
Vouches are a way to prove your trustworthiness in the game and are often looked upon by players before they gamble with someone, etc. Posting links to your vouch threads over the forums is not allowed and will result in your vouch thread getting locked. Feel free to let others know about your vouch thread but you’re not allowed to link them to it over the forums.

3.3 Inappropriate Usernames
We will not tolerate inappropriate names that contain any vulgar language, hate crime, relationship to pornographic material, impersonations (mod, admin, owner etc.) or anything that would be considered inappropriate of any sort. Any member who is caught impersonating a staff members username whether or not the staff member is a present member or inactive / resigned / demoted staff, the user will be permanently banned off the community forums. Those who fail to comply with this rule will be requested to choose another username by a developer (the member will have 24 hours to respond). After he or she has not responded or refused the change, their IP will be banned and the account deleted.

3.4 Evading Bans
All punishments handed to members is the sole reason as to why a community remains stable. Those who evade their bans, and IP-Bans to cause more problems after being punished will simply be dealt with accordingly with harsher terms. You are allowed to create another account on the forums to appeal but do not bother to cause more problems than you already have prior, simply appeal the punishment and let us deal with it from there.

3.5 Sharing Accounts

6. Misc

6.1 Outsider Links
All outsider links that are posted on the forums must be approved through a staff member. We do our best to maintain balance, and peace throughout this community. You must provide information about the link through a private message to the staff team and have it approved or declined. You will receive a warning if the link hasn't been approved. We expect all links to direct where they are supposed to be directed to.

- THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO WEBSITES SUCH AS: YouTube, Facebook, Google (Google itself, not a direct FROM Google) etc.

6.2 Backseat Moderation
Backseat moderation is something that we simply do not allow because it causes drama throughout the community and questions on whether or not we are an authority figure or if the members themselves are. While we are all equal, and should listen and learn from each other - that's simply how it is, we do not do this. Those who find something that needs to be reported or something of the sort, simply report it to a staff member, do not act like one and cause drama, this only causes an uproar. You shall receive infractions or have posting rights revoked if deemed fit by the moderating team.

6.3 Pornographic Material and Inappropriate Content
Discussion and or public display of any inappropriate images and or pornography are strictly prohibited. Inappropriate material such as half-naked women, men, or other forms of nudity or half sight of nudity will be classified as inappropriate content on the forums. This will be made for avatars, signatures, or any place that allows a user to "advertise" the content. We will not allow any form of drug related images on the forum in avatars, signatures, or any place that allows a user to "advertise" the content either. We will not tolerate these actions and will be enforced at all times, should discussion, photos, videos, avatars, signatures happen around Pre-Scape he or she will suffer the consequences.

6.4 Staff Impersonation
Staff Impersonation is not tolerated on the forums and will be dealt with harshly, member is eligible to being banned from the forums.

6.5 Invading
Invading other communities is a permanent ban from the forums, we do not tolerate this and want to remain peaceful throughout the RSPS community. Such things are cause of desperation and there's not going to be a time where the administration will stoop to that level of "stealing" other's members - it's unacceptable and will be dealt with.

6.6 Advertisement
Advertisement on the forums is strictly dealt with, and an automatic ban from the forums will be given. You will not be able to appeal this offence. Those who have other situations that do NOT relate to RuneScape Private Relations can private message an Administrator for permission to advertise, otherwise ALL advertisements will be dealt with as the same.

6.7 Purchasing, Selling, or Trading
Purchasing, selling, trading goods, or services (accounts, real life items, RSGP, Microsoft points, riot points, other private server items for Pre-Scape items etc.) will not be tolerated and action will be taken if it continues, we do not have the time for members to come to us and tell us that they've been scammed or hacked. We do want people coming at us as I said before, if we do not catch X member and end up being scammed. We will not be held responsible of the scam, or hacking.

- Purchasing or Selling of any Pre-Scape account will not be allowed on the forums. The ban will be permanent the first time with no chance of appeal, the second will be an IP-Ban.

- Purchasing or Selling of donator status on an existing account is not allowed on the forums. Advertising that you're going to do so will result in a ban. Please note that we are allowing members to donate for one another and a member can be pair for doing-so (purchasing status for a member and then being paid 300m as an example).

6.8 purchasing/selling GFX

You're not allowed to buy nor sell GFX work e.g signatures for any currency other than Pre-Scape GP

6.9 Polls
Manipulating poll votes in any way (such as paying people to vote for certain choices) is completely against the rules. Anyone caught doing so may face a ban.

 

Shoutbox

1. Only use English in the shoutbox. 

2. Flaming is not going to be tolerated in the shoutbox. It will result in either a temporary or permanent ban depending on the severity of the action(s) the individuals have committed.

3. Flame-baiting is not going to be tolerated in the shoutbox. Flame-baiting is the action of trying to provoke someone through any means to just get them ticked off which usually results in flame. If anyone is seen provoking another person, they will be dealt with accordingly.

4. Any talk about religion and or politics must be done within moderation and towards the rules. We understand that some people are really sensitive to certain topics therefore it is advised to just keep it civil when bringing about any sensitive topics. 

5. Pornographic material is not going to be tolerated in the shoutbox due the access of the shoutbox to certain age groups.

6. Do not ask about any appeals on the shoutbox. You are to undergo normal procedure and await a response from an administrator after making the appeal

7. Server bashing is not going to be tolerated on the shoutbox. If you have any suggestions or something you would like to change, take the appropriate action and make a thread in the suggestions section

These rules are subject to change at any time deemed fit.

 

Agreement

By being on the forums (this being implied that you've already read the rules), you understand that you are responsible for your own actions. You understand that the rules stated above will be enforced at all times and the administration has the ability to further the punishment despite what it states above, this is the administration's discretion. We have permission to do what we want with your account as they are a property of ours and you are merely 'playing' on it. You understand that when a rule is broken, your account will be dealt with accordingly and fairly as possible through the system that we have made for the staff team and how people are dealt with.

You understand that any sort-of attack (hacking, DDOS etc.) made against Pre-Scape will be dealt with accordingly, and you will be IP'd from the forums and server once found. If need-be your IP will be sent to the authorities.

You understand that we the administration have the ability and authority to alter your account at any time should we have to or feel we must check something onto one's account and agree that requesting a refund after an administrator has made an X change is not made.

You understand that the staff team is required to provide proof, however, we will not disclose a member's name (the one that reported you) if the member requests it. Many of the reports made in the report abuse board is hidden for a reason from others, however, we will do our best to provide the proof that we need.

You understand that we are not responsible for what is posted on these forums (while we will take action after it's either reported or we see it) so therefore someone that has been infected through these forums by a third party or by someone of this community, it's not our responsibility but it will be dealt with. So this being said, we are not responsible for ANY damage made to personal property nor information being stolen. Per this section, you understand that inappropriate posts (as said above though, once it's reported or we see it - it will be dealt with) that a child MAY encounter such as pornographic material, promoting drug related topics etc., it's not our responsibility, this is solely the parent's role. All emails or PMs to us by parents will either be replied to with simple words, or ignored and deleted - make no mistake, we will take care of it once reported or seen.

When reporting a member of the community you must provide a full screen picture of the client and computer. We will no longer be accepting reports that have been cut-out, cropped etc., we expect the entire picture to be there; if it's not then we will not deal with the report. If you happen to have a reason to report a staff member it needs to be video proof, we will no longer accept pictures as proof as it is very easy to falsify proof and we do not need unnecessary drama caused by that.

Regards,

Pre-Scape Staff Team
