The Player Code of Conduct
All players are held responsible for understanding and following the rules set forth below. For additional information, see individual help files or immorts with the 'PR' flag. The following activities have rules associated with them: 1. Multiplay: See Also: HELP MULTIPLAY for details. 2. Account Management: See Also: HELP ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT for details. 3. Harassing other players is prohibited. See Also: HELP HARASSMENT. 4. Sexually explicit language, cursing, and slurs are not permitted over public channels or in public forums. See Also: HELP LANGUAGE. 5. Characters who are not pk enabled are prohibited from interfering in pkill. See Also: HELP INTERFERENCE. 6. Asking or getting immorts to reveal or change your stats is not permitted, nor is getting or asking them to load items or mobs for you or to confer any other unfair advantage. 7. If you find a bug, you must report it by using the BUG command, mudmail to an immortal or email to [email protected] Taking advantage of a bug or using it to crash the mud is not permitted. See Also: HELP CHEAT. 8. Attempted or successful use of a command announced as disabled due to bugs is not reimbursable. 9. Intentionally placing a character over rent is not permitted. 10. Experience may not be 'given' away by characters permitting others to pkill them repeatedly. 11. In-game information (such as mob or item stats, quest solutions, etc.) is not permitted over public channels or in public forums. See Also: HELP CHEAT. 12. Do not attempt to take on someone else's identity without their permission. If you are involved with a roleplay plot, you should identify yourself to others if asked. See Also: HELP HARASSMENT. 13. Making false accusations under these rules is a punishable offense. 14. Never lie to an immortal; always be fully co-operative with them. Do not assume they have all the information they need, and be as helpful as possible to them so that they can respond appropriately. If an immortal asks you to do something (such as moving a conversation on chat to a conference), you should follow their instructions. If you have a problem with what you have been asked to do or have questions about it, take it up with that immortal in private or the implementors at a later time. 15. Attempting to circumvent a ban for any reason, no matter how well intentioned the circumvention, eg: to prove that you're well behaved and don't deserve a ban, or to discuss with an immortal the reason behind your ban (this should be done by email to [email protected]), will extend the ban by 3 months per successful circumvention. All characters involved with circumventing a ban may be deleted upon sight with no reimbursement. If a ban is lifted, for any reason, the extension of the ban may also be lifted at the Implementor's discretion. 16. There are also several rules that we have cataloged under 'etiquette.' Violations may result in penalties. See Also: HELP ETIQUETTE. 17. Certain types of botting are not permitted. See Also: HELP BOT. 18. 'Spamming,' is not allowed. See Also: HELP SPAMMING. 19. If you can't be decent, you may not be welcome.
