Rules
Please Note: These rules apply for in-game as well as on forums. Also, Moderators can give punishment depending on severity of rule broken, warnings are not a must and punishments can be adjusted as per severity of rule broken.


1) - Spamming: Creating meaningless messages or posts outside the spam section is not allowed. One-word replies also apply to this rule. This should be rather obvious. You know if you are contributing to the thread, or if you are purely adding content for attention or post-count.

1 Warning-->Jail-->If Continued a 1-24H Mute will be given.


2) - Excessive Swearing/Flaming: Use of cuss words will not be tolerated, we also have young members on this forum. Small amounts of flame is acceptable. Staff team may warn you to take further misgivings to the appropriate sections and any further actions will result in punishment

1 Warning-->Jail-->If Continued a 1-24H Mute will be given.


3) - Harassment: Trolling or belittling users excessively is counted as harassment and will not be tolerated. There are areas for this and the forum should be welcoming for everyone. No one should feel intimidated to post or be a part of our community

1 Warning->Jail-->If Continued a 1-24H Mute will be given.


4) - Punishment threads: Making a thread about a previous Infraction/warning/ban in any section other than appeals will lead you to get further punishment. -If you were perm banned or banned though in-game you may make ONE account to post ONE appeal thread or private message a staff member. -Any ban evading or posting elsewhere will result in a void of your appeal and further punishment. Ramifications are in place for a reason.

Don't think ban evading is acceptable. (If you feel that your infractions ban was biased, unfair or in any other way abusive, do NOT flame the staff member or complain. INSTEAD contact an admin or any higher ranking staff member)

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


5) - Staff Disrespect: Disrespecting a member of our staff team or player assistants will not be tolerated, they're here to help you. This especially applies to any flaming as a result of someone punishing/infracting you. You know what is acceptable and what is offensive.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


6) - X-Logging: Logging out whilst in a PvP match in an unsafe area is considered cheating and isn't allowed. Any logging or glitching to gain an unfair advantage will NOT be tolerated

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


7) - Real World Trading: Offering to buy/sell anything in real life for items/currency in Unorthodox isn't allowed. This also includes 07Rsgp.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


8) - Scamming: Item swapping, intentionally misleading or in any other way causing deception while trading will be not be allowed in PKM. Trades should be fair and pain-free. This includes lying or taking an unfair advantage as well. TRUST TRADES ARE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you "lend" something to someone, understand this is at your OWN risk. No refunds will be given

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


9) - Botting/Macroing: Using any type of auto clicker or Macro type software will result in your account being banned. This is obvious and should have no confusion. If you're using any 3rd party script, you are obviously breaking the rules

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


10) - Bug Abuse: Attempting to abuse a known bug/glitch on either the forum or server will result in your account being banned. This is a 0 tolerance rule. Just because it exists and it is exploitable, does NOT mean you are entitled to an unfair advantage. If you encounter a bug, report it on the forums under the Bugs section. If you see or know of players abusing, please report them with as much proof as you can in the Player Reports section

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


11) - Farming KDR/PKP: Farming is NOT allowed at all. If you are caught doing so will result in severe consequences. We do not take farming lightly. People spend their time getting their hard earned PKP/KDR up. You can't just take a shortcut.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


12) - Account Sharing: No STAFF member is permitted to share accounts with another person, whether it be friend or family member. I don't think there is any need for elaboration on this

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


13) - Discrimination: Discriminating a member based on their age, race, sexual preference, disabilities or any other relevant topics will not be tolerated. This falls under the same category as harassment and flaming. This community has a history with flaming and harassment to "female" players. Lets break that cliche mound and give each and every player a fair and unbiased chance.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


14) - Staff Impersonation: Attempting to fool a member in to thinking you're a member of staff is not allowed and creating an account with the username similar to a staff member will not be tolerated. Do not imply, announce or in any other way attempt to lie or mislead about a staff position. This should also be self explanatory.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


15) - Inappropriate Content: Posting content such as ****ography, gore or linking illegal downloads such as torrents is not tolerated under any circumstances. If you really feel the need to link or discuss such things, please take it to Skype or other contact. The last thing we would want is Unorthodox to get into trouble over a member sharing illegal or inappropriate content. Please don't put everyone at risk.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


16) - DDoSing Members: DDoSing members or threatening to do so will not be tolerated and will result in a banishment without warning. This is a very serious rule and even threatening to do so out of jest will not be tolerated.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


17) - Duping or Possession of duped items: Duplicating items or being in possession of duplicated items is a severe offense, if you're found in possession of duplicated items it's under an administrator's discretion whether to banish you or not. This is on a case by case basis and will not be taken lightly.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


18) - Ban Evasion: Using other accounts to evade a banishment given to you by a member of staff. All banishment's are to be fully served before you can be re-accepted into Unorthodox. (Does not apply to Permanent Bans). Please refer to rule #4 for clarification on appeals and punishment threads.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


19) - Grave-digging: Grave-digging or bumping old posts is not acceptable. Spam threads are the ONLY section where this rule does not apply. Anywhere else on the forum, if the thread is old and gone, leave it be.

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


20) - Inappropriate Usernames: Registering a username which is considered inappropriate, such as swearing, racial/sexist/homophobic words, etc. You will be warned once to message a staff member with an appropriate substitute You will have 24 hours to do so, and if you choose to ignore it, you will be banned.

Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


21) - IP Ban Evasion: Evading an account or IP banishment will cause both accounts to be permanently banned. You are only allowed to post an appeal, not converse with any user via PM or Shoutbox. Refer to rules #4 and #18

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.


22) - Advertising: Advertising another server or anything similar that may damage our player base is not allowed under ANY circumstances. You may not advertise on other servers either as that attracts negative attention towards Unorthodox or may attract malicious intent. This is considered a SERIOUS offense and will not be taken lightly

1 Warning-->Jail--> If Continued Specific punishments will be given.
