This is a general summary of conduct on the forum to abide by the rules.
Every reply should be meaningful and on-topic in a thread. Attempt effort into your posts and positively contribute to discussions. Be respectful, even when you disagree. When you disagree, don’t just state that you disagree; explain why and make your point. Avoid making very brief responses that could be translated into a like unless you have something to add to the discussion. Do not circumvent the character limit with clutter/hidden text. When replying to multiple posts, reply to all of them within one post by mentioning the users you are responding to instead of making an individual post for each response. Always use common sense when making posts, as anything you say on this forum in public categories can be found by anyone on the Internet.
For categorizing topics on the forum, you can find each public category easily on the Categories page in the navigation bar. Each category has a pinned “About …” topic with information for use, rules, and accessibility of the category.
Please take some time to read the About topics and all other pinned topics before posting. These will provide the purpose of the categories and instruct you on how to use them.
It is important to note that being ignorant of any rules or guidelines does not excuse you for breaking them.
The moderation team uses a point-based system that determines punishment lengths and types. Depending on the severity of an infraction, you will receive point(s) along with a punishment issued based on your total points. Breaking minor rules may result in just feedback rather than immediate punishment, but repeatedly breaking them will result in official punishment.
|Total Points||Punishment Given|
|2||Suspension (1 day)|
|3||Suspension (3 days)|
|4||Suspension (1 week)|
|5||Suspension (3 weeks)|
|6||Suspension (3 months)|
Every year, all users who will have their points reset to zero, but their previous moderation history will still exist to refer to in new cases. Users who have accumulated many points may not have their punishments reset if they have broken rules recently.
In specific cases, the punishment system will be disregarded. Punishments will be skipped and immediate deletion of accounts will result when:
Bot accounts are made on the forum to spam
Multiple accounts are being made with intent to raid the forum
A suspended or silenced forum user uses an alternate account to circumvent their punishment (only alt will be removed)

If you spot an exploiter in your server in the game, get screenshots/footage of the exploiting or their stats and contact the @game_moderators with proof. Here are some things you should consider when reporting an exploiter:
- Do NOT let them know that you are going to report them. If they leave before you can get any proof, we cannot ban them.
- Make sure you have actual evidence of the person in question exploiting, like screenshots or a video. It is preferred that you upload videos to YouTube. Videos with low quality that are blurry enough for the exploiter’s username to be unreadable is not sufficient. Avoid using the Roblox recorder and use a quality recording software such as OBS.
- When you report someone, make sure you have a screenshot of their Roblox username. We cannot identify users by their in-game name. Screenshots that are blurry or pixelated which makes names unreadable aren’t usable.
In any case where you do not have proof of a player exploiting, we cannot take action.
If you see someone breaking a forum rule, flag the post for one of the given reasons. In the case that context would be helpful or if there is a different rule violation to notify staff of, you can flag for Something Else, which will automatically send a message to all forum moderators. It would be helpful to cite the broken rule(s) in the reason as well.
@Moderators are also notified of flagged posts in PMs, so if you are being repeatedly harassed privately on the forum, do the same as you would on a public forum post. Do not encourage them by responding, and silently flag the offending posts.
If you want one of your own topics to be closed, flag your own post for Something Else requesting the closure of the topic. Alternatively, you can PM any @trust_level_4 user or forum moderator to do it for you. Keep in mind that you can delete your own topics only if no one has replied to them.
