If you break rule 3, you MAY receive a single warning, but will probably be banned on the
spot, especially if the offense involves botting, aimhacking, or any other major form of
cheating. You will also be reported to the game's GMs, likely getting you banned from the
game too. This is a legit alliance - if you plan to cheat, you aren't welcome here.
If you break rule 2, you'll likely get a single warning. We have to be harsh on that
because US laws are harsh on that. If something is borderline, please ask before you
post it. If you break rule 2 with anything depicting kids, expect a knock on your door
from the police.
We're far, far less strict on rule 1. Moderators generally follow these guidelines:
Minor, occasional issues like spam or double posts - Delete or move the offending post,
possibly PM the user
Several minor issues in a short period of time, or something more personal like a flame
or troll post - your warning bar increases 10-20%
A mountain of spam, or a series of flames/trolls/general asshatry - your warning bar
increases at least 50%
You do enough to get your warning bar filled - temp ban, generally 2 days the first
time, and an additional day each time after that.
At least 3 temp bans, or especially nasty methods of earning a ban - a private moderator
discussion is held and we decide if you're permanently banned.
Your warning bar has 1% removed per day, so the occasional mistake will not do much.
Please note that these are guidelines - something ridiculously bad can get you
instabanned (for instance: posting your ex's credit card numbers and bank logins), and
being one of those jackasses who constantly stays JUST under 100% warning, is a complete
ass to people, and adds nothing to the community is going to get you a final warning, and
then a ban.
