Player conduct at Sentinels Republic


Post by Cozdragon » Tue Jul 09, 2019 4:52 pm

Player conduct in-game, in Discord, the forums, Facebook or any other platform referencing Sentinels Republic (SR).

1.1 Harassment: Harassing players or staff so they can’t play is unacceptable, this includes kill stealing and clone camping. Harassment may also involve a real or perceived power imbalance with repeated actions or across multiple platforms. Examples of power imbalance would be threatening players with a comment such as I’ll get you banned because I know x, or encouraging guild members to victimise a player or staff member. It does not refer to power imbalance between character’s skills in game. Harassment can affect players and staff and neither are tolerated. This may include but is not limited to:
Verbal or non verbal abuse – name-calling, insults or gossiping, offensive hand signs or messages
Hate speech – remarks, jokes or comments relating to race, sex, sexuality or gender. It includes comments that reinforce the marginalisation of individuals or groups, e.g. those with physical or mental health needs, or on the basis of religious or political belief.
Sexual –Sexualised name-calling, derogatory comments, sexual propositions or comments related to criminal acts. Using words such as rape in other contexts are are not tolerated.
Indirect – spreading rumours, intimidation, exclusion from social groups, manipulating or undermining others, naming yourself, an item in game, or using memes to effect one of these actions.

1.2 Language Usage: Language that is considered vulgar, or falls within section 1.1 may not be used.

1.3 Staff Impersonation: Players who impersonate staff or try to moderate others’ behaviour will face consequences. If a player’s behaviour concerns you, contact the team via the discord help channel. Staff are identifiable by their tags e.g. Helper, CSI, EC, CSR, Admin and Dev in discord and in game.(Staff accounts in game are only logged in to do a specific task.)

1.4 Spamming is not allowed. This includes sending pm's to players regarding other servers. If you spot some, or receive some...please report it.

1.5 Disruption: Any disruption in any platform is inappropriate. Examples of disruption could be, but are not limited to abusive, racial, personal attacks, griefing or taunting individuals or guilds, publically sharing private conversations that you have taken part in to cause disruption or failing to comply with a staff request or complaining repeatedly about it. These will result in your account being frozen for a short time in one or multiple platforms.

1.6 Taunting and Griefing: Taunting or smack talk between players is not acceptable. Whilst we recognize that there is a PvP element and the game is set in the Galatic Civil War we expect players to treat each other with respect. Griefing is defined as deliberately harassing or irritating other players, using aspects of the game in unintended ways. Placing bases in opposing cities by key facilities such as shuttleports, cloning centres, cantinas or med bases with buffing facilities and vendors is not acceptable.

1.7 1.7 Chat Channels:
>Role play channel – for those who prefer a more immersive SWG experience
>PvP – for those who wish to engage in pvp and pvp related content and conversation. Please note that all server notifications re GCW kills and bounty kills are posted here.
>Galaxy chat – for all other conversation / chat etc.
>Services – adverts for those offering doctor / entertainer services. Please ensure that these have a pause
>Auction – for auctioning goods in game.
Please note that the server rules continue to apply, hate speech, harassment etc will not be tolerated.

1.8 PvP: PvP guidelines have been voted for by the players. The agreement is that ‘Red is dead’ at any time. If you are attackable then you can be attacked regardless of what you are doing or which guild you are in. It is acceptable for PvP to take place between players multiple times in a day. The code of conduct continues to apply during PvP, therefore training mobs, griefing, and harassment will not be tolerated. Players may use The Pit. The ONLY exclusion is for players attending events, and for 5 minutes following the EC closing the event.

1.9 Jedi and bounty hunters play an integral part of pvp here. Bounty hunters may work together or individually, and since this is a hunt the kill stealing guidelines will NOT apply. We would ask that we ask all players who pvp and therefore may have bounties on them to be mindful not to afk on outside spaces of buildings in order to waste BH’s time. Those that choose to do so repeatedly will face sanctions for griefing in line with our policies. BH who experience this will need to submit 2 time-stamped screenshots 15 minutes apart, the first showing an attempt to contact the player, and the second showing that they are still afk and have not responded to the tell.

1.10 If you have an issue with a guild member, discuss it with your guild leader. Guild leaders can contact the Community Manager(CM) at any time. If you need immediate help, use the help discord channel and use the @ function, however, remember that we do have to work, eat and sleep. Avoid responding and take screenshots. All complaints should be sent to the CM so that they can be recorded centrally and investigated by an appropriate team member. Actions taken will be agreed by senior staff and shared with those involved; where appropriate a general announcement may also be made to the community. If you are still unhappy with the action taken you should contact the CM and Desporo. The Community Manager is: Coz in discord or in game.

Game Rules

2.3 Account Sharing: Account sharing is not permitted. If you share your account details you will continue to be held accountable for your account's actions. We regularly check account use and will take action.

2.4 Account Mass Creating/Deleting to gain starter Money or equipment is not allowed. Please note: The first 5 toons will receive 110000 credits, subsequent toons will receive 1100 credits.

2.5 Bug Abuse/Hacking: Hacking or abuse of any bugs, duping or abuse of any in-game system is not allowed. Offenders caught exploiting will have their access removed for a period of time agreed by the team. Subsequent abuse will result in higher penalties. IF you identify a bug, report it using the mantis button on the launcher. Please be as descriptive as possible when reporting. We only accept Screenshots or Video Recordings. If there is a CSI, CSR or Admin in discord you may send them a message to ask for assistance.

2.6 Use the Auction Channel for auctioning items and the Services channel for all trading, buying, selling and service announcements in game. Keep macros short and simple. For example: I am providing Ent (0%) and/or Doc (0.0k, 0hrs, 0k credits) at (City) on (planet), (waypoint). Ensure there is a minimum pause of 5 minutes = /pause 300). While we recommend that you use the Services Channel for Service Announcements, buff bots may use spatial, tells or group chat.

2.7 RMT (Real Money Trading): Trading characters, money, accounts, items or anything related to the server for real money is not allowed.

2.8 Players are not allowed to kill other characters by agreement for mutual benefit. Examples of this include: gaining credits, faction, pvp rating or in order to be removed from the terminals. It will be considered an exploit and treated as such.

Additional Forum/Discord Guidance:
3.1 Ensure that you post in the correct forum or channel. (Example: trade requests belong in trading forum).

We reserve the right to remove content that contravenes the rules.
Harassing staff about a decision made regarding another player will not be tolerated.
If you wish to discuss a decision made by staff regarding your own conduct, please do so privately, however we strongly recommend that you take some time away first to ensure that you are calm.
Initial actions may be reviewed and extended following admin team discussion.

The following consequences are examples of actions that may be taken.
• General reminders about the expectations.
• Freezing/muting in-game and/or removal of discord access for a short period of time whilst the player considers their actions and staff can consider any further action required.
• A warning by a senior member of staff, stating which rules have been broken. Repeated warnings will result in further action.
• Removal of discord access and/or game access for a period of time ranging from 24 hours to up to one month. This will be discussed and agreed by admin staff.
• Deleting of an account, banning of the IP address and removal from any and all platforms in SR’s control. This will be discussed and agreed by admin staff.
• We reserve the right to share IP addresses and account names with other server owners.

• If you are not sure of a rule, ask a staff member.
