Proper punishment times and reasons.

Only Verbal Warnings / Warnings should be given when it was an accident.
If X is done three or more times it is considered "mass X".

If Staff; I recommend using what is in parenthesis to keep ban reasons and warnings clean.

Verbal Warning < Warning/Gag/Mute < Kick/Jail/Freeze < Ban < Perm Ban

          Accident < Intentional 


Note: These guidelines should be followed for time ranges between bans. With that said, if something here is not on the list and you would like something explained then let me know. All bans and kicks should be done with common sense followed with these guidelines. A lot of different scenarios can alter how a punishment is decided, don't be afraid to ban for longer / shorter if you personally think they do or don't deserve it. Also, keep in mind /anon is not a way to hide from the rules. It's there for RP.

Falsely killing someone (RDM)
  • If on accident usually a verbal warning would be given unless it could have obviously been avoided, in which case a warning would be issued. For example, if the offender failed to read the rules.
  • If on purpose but had a false reason than up to a warning can be given, we all make mistakes.
  • If the RDM was intentional then a 1 hour - 3-day ban can be issued
    • If the player is RDMing for false reasons and is asked to stop (ex: Revolution is over but still killing CP) the ban should result in a 1 hour - 24-hour ban depending on the player's attitude
    • If the player killed the person for "Revenge RDM" because they are angry they lost then it should result in a 24 hour - 3-day ban depending on the player's attitude
    • If the player killed the person for no reason but to just kill them, a 3-day ban should be issued for "No Intention to RP"
  • Mass RDM intentional or not can default to a one week ban. (ex: Does not advert PD raid and kills 3+ players and doesn't want to apologize and man up to his mistakes)
  • Mass RDM with NITRP will default up to a one week ban (ex: Someone joins, instantly goes bounty hunter to shoot everyone on the street and LTAP when they are jailed)
Falsely Arresting/Wanting someone (RDA)
  • If on accident usually a verbal warning would be given unless it could have obviously been avoided.
  • On purpose but with false reason than a warning can be given.
  • If the RDA was intentional then the ban should result in a 6 hour - 3-day ban
    • If the cop arrested someone for being RDMed earlier, the ban should be 6 hour - 24 hours depending on the attitude of the player
    • If the cop arrested someone due to some personal grudge against the user, the ban should be 6 hour - 24 hours depending on the attitude of the player
    • If the cop arrested someone for absolutely no reason, the ban should be 24 hours at a minimum
  • Mass RDA intentional or not can lead to being banned for a week.
Disrespecting / Threatening (Harassment)
  • We highly recommend dealing with this in an RP manner. You should not take what people say seriously on the internet.
  • Harassment should not result in a ban or kick unless it's very severe. Always start with a warning and then if it gets severe, get an admin+ involved.
  • This goes for Staff Harassment too, do not get offended if someone calls you a terrible staff member or anything else. If harassment goes too far, get an admin+ involved.
  • If DDoS threat, slap them with a perma cause they dumb lol
  • A player with Constant banter to a staff member while they are trying to resolve their issue should result in a 6 hour - 3-day ban immediately
    • Ex: Player will not let staff member solve the sit they called for because the player keeps calling them any derogatory term / talking over than 6 hour - 3 day ban depending on player attitude
    • Ex: Player keeps harassing other player in a sit / issue escalates should result in a 6 hour - 3 day ban depending on player attitude
Not role-playing properly or as chosen job. (FailRP)
  • FailRP is very general, this includes things like cops not arresting criminals and letting them go.
  • This should not be punishable by staff and the players have all of the power to decide who is and isn't on the job
  • A verbal warning in rare circumstances can be given out to players who do not want to
Exploiting
  • Exploiting is using a feature in an unintended manner to give yourself an advantage.
  • If caught exploiting the punishment will vary depending on how much of an advantage the exploiter gains. This ranges from being humiliated to being perma banned.
  • Reporting an exploit gets you off the hook 99.99% of the time unless you're abusing it still. 
Fading Door Abuse (FDA)
  • If a player is caught using key binds to open and close doors to avoid RP scenarios, this is a warn to a one day ban.
  • Remember to look for keypads on both sides of a fading door!
  • You can use the keypad checker swep to show which keypad is located to which fading door and how long the interval of the fading door is!
Chat (Spamming)
  • If disrespectful a warning/gag/mute can be given.
  • Spamming offensive messages in OOC or Advert is a ban. 
  • Racism is a ban or warn.
General Prop Abuse(Prop Abuse)
  • Can be anywhere from a verbal warning to a ban.
  • This includes but is not limited to prop Blocking/Flying/Spamming.
  • Also building in a place you do not own to give your self any form of advantage is warn-able.
  • If prop spam causes lag then it can be considered " Crashing Server".
FailBasing
  • Failbasing encompasses a large variety of bases that are either banned or unfair.
  • Punishment for this rule varies massively and depends on how often a user breaks it. It usually starts with a warn/kick.
  • Bases that fall under this category include:
  • Skybases (Unless your job allows it)
  • Bases that use props to climb onto a building
  • Crouch bases that exploit head glitches
  • Having hidden keypads (They must be next to the door and in plain sight)
  • Having a base that is only accessible using weapons/tools that let you access higher parts of the map (e.g Master Sword)
  • Having a blackout base or any color that makes it almost impossible to gain a perception of direction
  • Having a base that uses a killbox or any form of inescapable trap
  • Having a base that exploits a body part glitch
Repeat Offence in short time span (Continue After Warned)
  • If continued after being told not to by staff a higher punishment will be given.
  • This mainly applies to offenders who do something multiple times in one sitting.
  • 15 warns - 1-week ban
  • 25 warns - 2-week ban
  • 35 warns - 1-month ban
  • 50 warns - Permaban
Leaving to avoid punishment(LTAP)
  • Doing this can highly extend your ban length, it is considered LTAP if you leave immediately after breaking a rule or leaving while in a sit.
  • Keep in mind someone leaving does not automatically equal LTAP, only put it if they obviously were trying to avoid being in trouble.
Attempting to lag or crash the server. (Crashing Server)
  • This will be a permanent ban about 90% of the time.
  • Even threatening it can lead to a permanent ban.
  • Causing lag in game and DDoSing fall under this.
Player Toxicity
  • Racism / Vulgar language in OOC should result in a verbal warning first then a 1 hour - 3-day ban depending on continued offenses
  • Personal attacks on other players should result in a 3-day ban - 1-week ban - 2-week ban depending on continued offenses
  • Vulgar language used constantly around other players should result in a warn - 1-day ban depending on continued offenses
Failure To Comply
  • Not listening to a staff member / continues to cause issues / not helping staff resolve their issue 1-day - 3-day ban depending on the player attitude
  • Running away from a sit / not listening 1-day ban - 3-day ban depending on the player attitude 
Drama
  • Causing/contributing to drama will be issued a verbal warning to take it out of the server. If continued, the players involved in contributing will be banned for a month
Personal Info Leaking
  • Players caught leaking any info of other players without permission will be banned for 1 week - Permanent ban
