Chat Rules

Chat Rules of DarkSwords

 

The following list of rules has been worked out by the Administrator and the moderators of the game DarkSwords. These rules are obligatory to be followed by all participants of the game. By entering the game you automatically agree to follow these rules.

If you act against these rules you are considered a violator and will be punished. This applies to any sentence said by your character in game. Punishment can be anything from some time of not being able to chat up to an IP ban for severe violations. All violations are subject to be punished by either the moderators, their helpers or the Administrator.

 

The first and most important rule of DarkSwords is:

Moderators and the representatives of DS Administration have absolute power and their actions are not to be discussed in any kind of in-game chat. If you violate this rule you will receive a minimum punishment of 15 minutes your chat being disabled.

If you feel punished unfairly you may voice your dissatisfaction in the Complaint section of www.darkswords.eu/forum in a manner that follows the forum rules.

 

(Please note that the following list displays the minimum punishment for each violation. Repeated violations will lead to harder punishment. The Administration also reserves the right to ban a character or an IP in case of multiple violations.)

 

The following is forbidden in Public Chat:

 

Flood: You are not allowed to post similar messages more than once every 60 seconds. The minimum punishment (referred to as MP in the rest of the text) is 5 minutes of your chat being disabled (referred to as Silence in the rest of the text).

 

Symbol Flood: You are not allowed to Flood Symbols. The following is considered Symbol Flood

Using more than three symbols of a kind is considered symbol flood. For example when you write: „Help me please!!!!“, that sentence would be considered symbol flood.

Also if the symbol reappears over and over in a line, its considered Symbol Flood. Example: „Help! He is killing me! Help me! Im going to die! No!“

Also things like (*.*) are considered symbol flood. It may not be the same symbols, but a combination of symbols that is senseless and doesn't have to be written.

There is an exception to the rule though. When group of three dots are used repeatedly in one line this is not symbol flood. For example „Hmm...I don't know...might be tricky!“ This is not considered symbol flood.
MP: 5 minutes Silence.

 

Smiley Flood: You are not allowed to Flood Smileys. The following is considered Smiley Flood.

Posting of more than three smileys in a line or more than three smileys in several lines in less than 60 seconds is considered smiley flood. Also the number tags like * 001 * and symbols like :P and so on are considered smileys.
MP: 5 minutes Silence.

 

Capital Letters (Caps): You are not allowed to excessively use capital letters. The following explains what is allowed or not with Caps.

The use of more that one word in capital letters is forbidden.

Also as some players in the past have tried to be funny and get around that rule by taking ridiculous long names and capsing them out in public, doing so is considered capsing too. Whether those places or things have such a long name it is only appropriate to caps the first letter then, as it would be appropriate to do so if you write an essay or similar.
Capsing the first letter of every word in a sentence is ok, while capsing several letters in more than one word (example: „HoLy MoLy, ThIs RoCkS!“) is again considered capsing.

MP: 5 minute Silence.

 

Rudeness, Insults, Foul Language: Your are not allowed to use rudeness or foul language. Furthermore you will be punished for insulting others. The MP for that is 5 minute silence.

External Media links (e.g. www.youtube.com) MP: 1 hour Silence. External Game Links (e.g. www.notdarkswords.eu) MP: 24 hours Silence. External links with sexual or other harmful content MP: 24 hours Silence.

Further information on rules and sales

 

If you suspect somebody of religious cheating please take a screenshot and send it to a moderator. Upon receiving those screenshots the Administrator will investigate each case individually and punish the violators. The minimum punishment for such violations is a 24 hour mute and lvl 5 Katorga. Furthermore twice a year the Holy Inquisition will take place and violators against the rules of religious warfare will be punished with loss of religion and the loss of 15% HP for a month.

 

If a player is called using bots, macros or other means to be able to hunt while actually being away from keyboard that character will be send to Jail. The sentence will be negotiated in each case individually.

 

Flooding with trade requests or protection will not be tolerated and will lead to a visit in Jail.

 

Trading Platinum for gold is not forbidden, however it is a risky business. The purchase of Platinum for gold is not official and thus not supported by the Administration. All deals are made at your own risk. To prevent getting scammed we advise you not to click the Apply button in trade window until both parties inserted the amount of goods negotiated.

To purchase Plat we highly recommend you to use official Dealers or Traders. Dealers and Traders can be recognized by the Moneybag/Coin Symbols next to their names in the Player List.

 

 

 

Please, read and follow the rules and take the advice we are giving you. It makes gameplay enjoyable for everybody. Enjoy playing DarkSwords and have a nice day!
