Being offensive to anyone on our servers is not tolerated.
Flooding text or voice channels is not allowed. Spamming voice chat includes but is not limited to constantly using the mic, playing music or obnoxious sounds.
You can only speak English in voice chat, however, you are free to speak whatever language you like in chat.
Due to younger children/teenagers having higher pitched voices, which microphones may change for the worse, we ask that only mature voices are to be used. Exceptions are made on Jailbreak if the user is playing as Warden.
This includes sprays, conscientious objector and steam avatars which show inappropriate content. Please refer to common sense to decide whether to use an image or not.
Using third party applications to give you a bonus over other users is pathetic and if you require these applications to assist you then, we suggest you play a simpler game such as Farming Simulator, rather than a game which will require you to actually learn, and have skill.
Exploting glitches in the game to get an advantage over other players is not allowed. If you find a glitch in the game, report it to Valve. If you find a glitch in a map or custom gamemode, report it to the creator of said content and also to us if possible. By reporting it to us we can make a temporary fix.
Advertising hacks/cheats is something we do not allow.
Undercover admins are there to punish people that think they can get away with breaking rules, do NOT expose them.
Only use calladmin when necessary, we respond to as many as we can but thanks to false calls and spam we will get to actual calls later.
Do not give any information about traps to allow people to get past them with ease, except if it is a freerun.
Some maps Do not have Anti-AFK methods, so Do not exploit this and actively participate in the game.
The Death is not allowed to activate any traps to kill runners when they have given a freerun.
Use !drtoggle if you don't want to be picked as death
Camping is against the rules, it doesn't matter which team you are on.
Do not delay the rounds, this stops people from enjoying the game and ruins the experience for other people.
Being friendly removes the point of the game, and could ruin the fun for everyone else.
Give everyone a chance to actually play the game. If the rocket targets you, then you deal with it.
Do not suicide when you hear/see that the rocket is coming to you. This is considered griefing, as the person that the rocket will go to next will have a VERY hard time dealing with the switch.
Delaying the round spoils the game, please do not do it.
Do not stop the enemies from being able to leave the spawn room.
A scammer is anyone that uses deception, thievery, lies, or anything that is underhanded to take advantage of or steal from another trader. See below for more comprehensive list of what qualifies for SCAMMER status: (snip; non-comprehensive list folows)
Charge-back or Reversal (buy an item from the store, trade it away, chargeback purchase)
Quick-switching items (offer to trade one item, trade a visually identical/similar but much less valuable item instead)
Receiving the item and not paying (offer to trade for cash, get item, don't pay/pay and get refund from PayPal/etc.)
Spycrabbing and then not paying (gamble an item away, lose and keep the item)
When you shark somebody, you find a new, guillible TF2 player who has earbuds (or an unusual, or another very valuable item) and tell them that you'd like to have it; you'll even give some weapons for it. The sharker banks on the new player being wanting for that annoying bow and arrow thing enough to part with a bunch of pixels in exchange for it. The player doesn't know better and agrees to the exchange, but the sharker didn't actually lie so it is not scamming. The trading "scene" places the blame then on the gullible player for being, well, gullible and agreeing to a bad trade. Obviously he should've known about steamrep.com and backpack.tf and tf2outpost.com and why the hell buds are worth that much money anyway.
If you are gambling an item worth 1 key or higher, you must use a verified middleman.
Staff members do not take responsibility if you do not use a trusted middleman.
If you want to host one of these events and earn a profit from it, do not do it on our servers.
If you want items for free, go and enter a giveaway, asking for this irritates people who have worked hard to make a profit.
If you want to tell people what you are selling, tell the whole server by using the chat.
Wait until your previous bind disappears, then you can use it again.
Nobody likes spam, so please Do not do it.
If you want to be rude, do it else where. We Do not want it here.
It is fairly easy to figure out, if you require help, go to "Request Help". If you are posting memes, go to "Memes". If you are struggling, maybe ask instead of breaking the rules.
