For these and other violations, the Administration reserves the right to punish the Player (user) immediately and without prior notification, by denying access, in part or in whole, to the game and any or all of its services.
If you see someone violating the rules, you can inform any of the online Moderators via Private Message (you can see who is online at the bottom of the forum main page, including the moderator list in the present thread). Make sure that your PM includes a clear description of the violation and a screenshot from the chatroom proving the violation.
The Administration operates the game at its own discretion; however, it defers to the community’s opinion.
The Player (user) uses the game and its services at their own risk, according to the ‘as is’ principle. In no event will the Administration be liable for any direct or indirect damage the Player may sustain from receiving or failing to receive game services.
The forum and chat are for people of the age of 16 and older. When the User passes to a forum or in a chat, he confirms that he is 16 and older.
These rules may be modified by the administration without prior notification. The user is obliged to check the rules for modifications no less than once every seven days (that is, on a weekly basis). If the user continues to use any of the game’s services without checking with the rules, it will be assumed that he/she has familiarized himself/herself with the revised version of the rules and has agreed to abide by them.
Administration chooses moderators among the players.
Moderator is the official who maintains the order and controls the game.
Moderator is authorized to make a warning to the player and to restrict player’s communication abilities for the period corresponding to the violation and taking into account player’s previous violations.
Moderator has to be honest and dispassionate in his decisions. Excessive use of moderator abilities is strictly forbidden. Every action of the moderator is being logged. If somebody of moderators will not justify the confidence he (she) will be retired from responsibility without warnings and discussions by Administration’s inner decision.
Public discussions about moderators’ actions are prohibited. If you think that you’ve got your ban without any cause you should send the pretension to firstname.lastname@example.org
. In the message you should clearly and in details describe your claim. Also it is necessary to attach chat screenshot to the letter. Attention! This letter will not be discussed too and your ban won’t be canceled but we will run an administrative review of moderator’ actions.
To become a moderator you should file an application in the written form through the private message to the Administration. It is necessary to specify your age, nickname in the game, your registration date in the project, the amount of time you daily spend in the game and experience of moderating other projects (please name these projects). Also you should explain why you want to moderate our game and point out any other important details which in your opinion will help you get the position of moderator.
