Hello everyone, this topic has now had a fairly major update. I suggest you read through the rules once again for some of the changes. I will highlight them below in a copy if you wish to know what has changed. Some rules have been added, some rules have been removed, and one rule (#4 in the update) is a combination of 3 different rules from the old rules list.
Rules in English only have changed and French Discord rules have been added. other languages will need to be updated. Help translate these rules by contacting MaTT
. Credit will be given to you in the rules post itself!
Some rules have been added, some rules have been deleted,
For those of you who wish to edit the rules topic themselves to update other languages, please note that not only had some wording changed, but the formatting has changed as well. Some text is bigger, new image icons have been added, and of course the layout of the whole Game Server rules section has been changed to reflect game rules and not individual game mode rules. Rules for Garry's Mod and Counter Strike - Global Offensive are being discussed by the Leading-Team and will be added soon. A separate post will be made announcing this.
The following is the highlighted changes. Green highlights
indicate parts that have been added and red highlights
indicate parts that have been removed. Removed rules are added to the end of each category and sub-category, highlighted red and their rule numbers have been removed.
General All-Round RulesRules that affect all visitors and members1. Follow your country's laws and regulations. EVERYONE MUST follow this rule, if you do not, you WILL be banned and a report may be sent to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If the offence in question is very serious then your country authorities may be contacted. This includes racism, homophobia, illegal links, age restrictions, online grooming, death threats etc.2. Religious, political and sexual talk and names are not allowed. Religious and Political talk is what starts large arguments and in the past and even wars between countries, therefore it is strictly forbidden. Many people in ET are under the age for sexual talk in the clan and so this is not allowed.3. Cheating or hacking in ANY way is not allowed. This rule is quite strait forward, never EVER cheat or hack in our game servers or hack into the forum, this is strictly forbidden and will result in a permanent BAN from all servers and (if you are registered/a member) our forum without question!4. Abuse and Insults are not welcome. Be nice, polite and friendly at all times.
Abusive comments, names and behavior (aside from general member banter) as well as any swears or insults directed at anyone is not welcome and will bring consequences. Swearing is allowed but as long as it isn't directed at insulting other players or people and isn't racist or offensive in any way. Please always be nice, polite and friendly on servers and in forum, no matter what! It promotes a good atmosphere in our servers and forum so everyone can enjoy our clan.5. Advertising/displaying links or IPs is not allowed. Posting links to websites, posting IPs and names of other servers is not allowed and will get you banned even if people ask you for IPs and links. Exceptions are links to websites, or even other clan websites that will ONLY HELP you/other people with something such as fixing a computer problem. Links to SAFE and LEGAL downloads are allowed as well as links to trusted sites such as Google, Youtube, Yahoo, Gametracker, Xfire, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are allowed.6. Advertising in other clan servers is not allowed. Similar to the above rule "Advertising/displaying links or IPs is not allowed" except in other clan servers. Advertising our clan in other clan's servers are not allowed. If you do, this does not gain us more visitors but instead hurts our reputation among other clans and players and gives our clan a bad image as a whole. What happens then is players want to stay away from our clan.7. Multi-clanning is not allowed for level 300+ (Senior Member). Multi-clanning is when you are in 2 clans at once, this is forbidden for anyone who is level 300 (Senior Member) and above to do. Anyone who is level 300 (Senior Member) and above may find your self demoted to 200 (Junior Member) if you are found to be in another clan and may even be banned permanently if it has been kept secret from us. The only exception to this rule is if the second clan is in a game separate to where we host our servers. Keep in mind however that if you are inactive as a level 300+ to spend more time in your second clan then you will still be demoted due to this inactivity.8. Stealing nicknames is not allowed. Having the same nickname than someone else on servers can create problems, the name-stealer can abuse and the player having his name stolen may feel insulted. Other people may also get confused as to who is who.*. Unneccessary/Brutal stereotyping is not allowed.
Stereotyping can be seriously offensive, not only to one person, but whole nations if used brutally. For example, "All Germans are Nazis" - THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!.
*. Swearing is allowed with exceptions.
Although it is not a good thing to do, swearing is allowed but as long as it isn't directed at insulting other players or people and isn't racist or offensive in any way.
*. Be nice, polite and friendly at all times.
Please always be nice, polite and friendly on servers and in forum, not matter what! It promotes a good atmosphere in our servers and forum which is a good thing. This is a very simple rule to follow and it shows what kind of person you are/can be.
Game Server RulesRules that affect all visitors and members in-game. All general rules apply here without exception. Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory1. Wall-Jumping is not allowed. - Frag/Objective Wall-Jumping (can also be known as rushing) is when players either side (defending or attacking) jumps over or skips a secondary dynamitable or constructable objective (e.g. wall or fence/water pump) to get to the main objective to either dynamite, defuse, or steal the objective. Wall-Jumping to just kill other players will NOT be accepted as an excuse. However, using a Covert Ops class to get through Axis-only doors is allowed as well as using it to let team mates through.2. Annoying your team mates is not allowed. - Frag/Objective Annoying team mates means standing in front of them intentionally, throwing grenades or satchels to launch them in the air intentionally, throwing smoke grenades in front of snipers or defenders intentionally and pushing team mates. Pushing is only allowed when somebody is blocking somewhere like main entrances or doors or if he keeps blocking you.3. Entering pornographical rooms is not allowed. - TrickJump On some trickjump maps there are porn rooms, these are not allowed as some players may be under-aged. We cannot know everyone who is over 18 or if you just say you are 18 to enter, therefore there are no exceptions to this rule. This rule applies for our TJmod server as well as our Jaymod Trickjump server.4. Excessive use of the 'no clip' command is not allowed. - TrickJump
All members are free to use the !noclip command to move through the map. However, excessive, unnecessary use of and/or spamming the command is not allowed. The trickjump server is for trickjumping, not flying around with commands.*. !Throw, !Launch and !Revive aren't allowed in objective maps.
Using the commands !Throw and !Launch if you are level 40 and !Throw, !Launch and !Revive if you are level 100+ is not allowed in certain maps where you need to complete an objective to win. The server should tell you which maps you may use these commands in.
*. !Throwing and !Launching others is not allowed.
No one is allowed to use the commands !Throw, !Launch on others, unless they or you ask and you have a high admin's permission. You may !revive others though.
*. Nading and panzering others is not allowed.
Nading is throwing grenades at people and when they explode they fly or move, this is not allowed as well as firing a panzerfaust at people (unless you want to have fun AND you have their permission but if they ask to stop then stop!). Garry's ModComing Soon Counter Strike - Global OffensiveComing Soon Discord1. Pornographic, graphical, political and religious talk, images and videos are not allowed.
A self-explanatory extension of the general rule #2 which is extended to cover Discord chats. Sexual, political and religious talk as well as pornographic, graphical etc. images and videos are not allowed to be shared in any of the clan's Discord text or voice channels. As said in rule #2, this is strictly forbidden.
2. Excessive spam in text channels is not allowed.
Spamming is repeating same words or just typing randomly. Spamming text, emoticons, images, links, videos and Discord/Bot commands in any of the available text chats is not allowed. If you wish to spam, then please use the available #spam text chat.
3. When using a music bot or microphone, playing loud songs/sound clips are not allowed.
Playing loud songs and sound clips (sometimes referred to as 'ear rape') using a music bot in a voice channel, or by using microphone with a soundboard is not allowed as it can be uncomfortable or damaging to people's hearing.
4. Use of the #adminsos channel is restricted to calls for help only.
The #adminsos channel exists for the specific purpose of giving members the ability to call for a higher level moderator, admin or Leading-Team member if they need assistance with players in the server or other related issues that require higher level members. Please do not use this channel for general talk.
Forum RulesRules that affect all visitors and members in the forum. All general rules apply here without exception.1. Double, triple or multi posting is not allowed. Posting 2 or more times after a post you very recently posted is considered double, triple or multi posting, an exception is when you miss out something in your last post and you wanted to add something but you can't edit your last post as it has been more than 6 minutes.2. Posting in the wrong forum/section is not allowed. Posting a topic or post in the wrong forum/section isn't allowed. Example: posting a request to join topic in the "Banned?" sub-forum when it should be in the "Join ETernal Clan" sub-forum. However, we do accept that mistakes can be made, and we usually move topics to their correct sub-forums.3. Accusing anyone without proof is not allowed. When you accuse someone of breaking our rules, then proof/evidence is needed to confirm the accusation. Proof can come in the form of a screenshot or a video recording (aka demo in Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory). If no proof/evidence is provided, then it can be difficult to make a case out of your accusations and your accusations may be dismissed. You cannot always except Admins and the Leading-Team to search through server and chat logs.4. Spamming is not allowed. Spamming is repeating same words or just typing randomly, don't do it! If you want to do it use our spam sub-forum. Topics which are not posted in after 60 days (~2 months) in the spam sub-forum will automatically be deleted permanently. As of 25/05/2014 posts in the spam sub-forum no longer count towards your profile post count.
Please make sure these rules are adhered to at all times! If you have any questions or concerns, please either post in this topic or contact a member of the Leading-Team. Thank you.
