Date: 23-5-12Additional rules.
The following rules are approved by the high & low council and have to be followed the moment you log in onto the server or when you are in contact with any of the members OOC.Skin use for:
Hopefuls, Initiates, padawans an adepts.
No personal skins can be used without permission of the council, this is if you have a specie that isn’t available in one of our provided skin packs.
If you do get approval, you have the option to pick/make one skin and use it until you reach knight level.
Before that time no updates may be posted or used and you will have to use your choosed skin at all time unless a master or council member tells you otherwise.Password use:
Passwords may only be given by masters or council, if they are not online don’t risk any problems if you are lower ranked.
The passwords on our packs or our clan pass are meant for members only!
Passing this pass on without permission of the council will result in an immediate de-rank and you will be banned for an amount of time decided by the council.
This ban can as well be permanent.
Be sure to keep every password acquired and make sure to double check if you log in.
If you make a flaw in the login its possible the message shows up in the chat.
This can of course happen in an accident, so if this happens make sure to PM the council members on the forum, they will arrange a password change and will provide everyone with a new password.Language:
Like said before, the moment you enter the server you are entering a role play environment. The use of language during the role plays are most important.
We will not tolerate cursing and sexual chat on our server, if hear any complains about a certain person you will be summoned by the council for your deeds.
Our actions depend on the situation and what has been said.
We can follow our standard protocol: Slap, kick and ban.
The ban depends on what the council will decide what is most suited.Respect:
Its important to show respect to your elders, higher ranked and fellow members. These respect rules are for OOC and IRP. Breaking these results will result in a protocol punishment which will be decided by the Council.
Warning for those that think its ok for acting out of line, logs will and are checked regularly by the council!
Important reminders how to act: Calling a knight and up for example goes by the following: Master YukiShiro or Chancellor YukiShiro.
Same rules apply for any other council member or master. Admin protocol:
For admins its important to show a mature level towards other players. Its as well important to direct members, inform them about certain rules(if they ask or break these) and to correct other members if they act without following the right protocol.
Even members should can correct admins, just make sure to tell them in PM. If the admin keeps doing what he does(which isn’t correct), PM a council member on the forum or on the server. The council will take the correct steps to deal with this problem.
For admins its important to know that they shouldn’t abuse their powers and use them In the correct way.
Example: Before teleporting you will ghost yourself(else its possible you might kill someone and break their RP). No spawning of NPC’s, vehicles or anything else without permission by the council.
This will prevent the server from crashing or people from disconnecting if they are missing certain packs.
Punishment for admins breaking rules are HIGHER than normal members breaking them. When receiving multiple complains about an admin this can result in a temporarily ban or a de-rank to a level where the admin wont have anymore admin at all.
Admins can request permission for bans and kicks if there is a higher ranked member online or try to contact a council member on skype or xfire.
Bans have to be approved by the COUNCIL, breaking this rule can result in severe punishment.Chatting on server:
Many times the chat gets spammed by guest or random ooc by members. We like to keep our ooc chat as low as possible. For a good role play environment without ooc interference, ooc chat must be brought to either the Clan chat, PM’s or a made Clan chat for guest.
Please inform guest that its important to use PM for questions, if they have a lot of questions bring them to a clanchat.
How to do this? Open console – Type: Say_team_mod clan – Type: Clanpass ‘’make up a pass’’
This prevents from chat spam of questions etc.
If a guest has a lot of questions its even advisable to give him/her our clan website: www.freewebs.com/usa-clan2006
or even direct him/her to a master or council member.Map rules:
Its not allowed by guest or members without permission to use our holo/simulation room(npc rooms). Its not allowed to spawn any vehicles or NPC’s in other rooms. Certain rooms can be locked and should be locked at all time unless an admin is busy with this room.
If these rooms are not locked this should be reported immediately so an admin can lock these rooms.
If a guest is spawning vehicles randomly, inform him at once that this isn’t allowed. Does he/she continue, inform an admin.
Its as well not allowed to destroy anything during your stay on the server, unless this is an approved role play action by an admin.
Breaking any of these rules will result in a punishment followed by the protocol used by the council.Use of [GF] tag:
Wearing these tags means you are representing GF, this is of course if you have permission in using these tags on a diplomatic mission to a different order(server).
This permission can only be granted by the COUNCIL, without their permission its forbidden to use the GF tags on any other server than the GF main server.
Breaking these rules will be punished with a temporarily ban, decided by the council.
Non members cant use the tags on our server, this is clan pass protected.
Like noted above, this pass is strictly meant for members only!
However, it is possible non members use our tags to impersonate a GF member to cause a conflict with a certain server or to give GF a bad name.
When this happens or if you find anyone using this name and this person isn’t known by yourself, contact the council or any admin immediately.
Its also important for other server admins(owners) to inform GF personally about such a problem.
Example: GF members breaking rules on their server, trolling, spamming or laming.
Or its possible someone pretended to be a member of GF and we can find out if this gets reported.
Aside from this problem which can occur, its also possible that people might talk trash about GF and will try to cause a bad name for us in this way.
If you hear any complains about us, please note down the server IP & clan/order name, and any available information about the person that comes forward with the complain.
The GF council will try to deal and solve this problem further.
So remember, don’t use tags outside GF server without permission and note down as much information possible about a complain or a non recognized member of GF.OOC Rules:
Even OOC there are certain rules to be followed.
We like to keep an as high as possible respect level towards anyone, since we don’t see a point in talking trash or curse at a person without a valid reason.
So when you are talking to someone you know from JKA(other clan member) or player, its important to show a professional and mature level towards the person.
If trolling, spamming, teasing or anything else happens OOC or even IRP, contact a council member immediately about this problem.
We will do our best in solving this matter as soon as possible cause we don’t find this tolerated by anyone who causes these problems.
This is for outsiders or even members.
We find OOC affairs extremely important and we take this very serious, so be warned we are not scared to deal with this on a mature level and this may even result in a court order and fine if this law finds this accusing serious enough.Multiclanning policy:
From this date on we wont allow anymore multiclanning. Meaning it wont be allowed to be in another clan aside from GF.
This will prevent inactivity from the member or any absence when there is an event from the other clan planned.
Breaking this rule may result in exile from the order.
Signed, Federation council.Important note: Extra rules will and can be added any day, be sure to check in regulary for updates.Update!
During duels(spars) its important to keep a certain level of respect towards your opponent(s).
This simply means, dont attack the person if he/she is unarmed.
This can happen if you kick the person on the ground, the person dropping his/her saber or any other reason why he/she cannont attack or defend him/herself.
Make sure to keep this rule in mind, its very important and we will monitor spars(duels) regularely if this rule is being followed.
There are of course exceptions, this means if its a life threatning situation(role playing duel).
This means your character might die(you loose your char).
When this is the situation you are allowed to do anything in your power to win the duel, even attacking a unarmed person.
