MoronYard Server Rules

The majority of the rules listed on this thread are common sense. If you have any questions about the rules then please reply, or talk to a Moderator, we are always willing to help. Anyone who is caught breaking the rules will be punished. If you are found intentionally avoiding the rules, or are caught breaking an offence such as Ban Evasion, you will given a much more severe punishment.

General Rules

1 - Keep ALL offensive language to a minimum.
Some types of banter are allowed, but please stop if you can see you are offending someone, or if you are simply asked not to continue. The punishment for this would depend on the amount of bad language you use, and the staff member who is dealing with it at the time.

2 - Cheating
If you are found to be using any type of hack, or gaining any type of unfair advantage (such as exploiting a server glitch) then you will be banned. The ban will depend on the severity of the glitch, and how you handle it. All glitches should be reported in private to a server admin.

3 - No Spamming
This rule covers many different things. For example, you shouldn't spam anything and this can include written chat, emotes or random noises on your mic. Playing music through the microphone is counted as mic spam,  as are animal sounds, screaming through the mic, using a voice changer, or anything else which might cause distress to other users.

4 - Player Behaviour
All players on the server are to be treated the same way. This doesn't matter if they are a known speed hacker, or an administrator. You are required to be nice to them. If someone on one of the servers is disrespectful then please, report it to a Moderator.

5 - Chat
Cross Server Chat is something known as CSC which allows you to communicate with people on the other MoronYard servers. Very recently, we have been having some problems with people breaking rules which are connected to CSC. It is against the rules to post "item codes" on CSC, and it is also against the rules to send messages which are solely using capitals. This rule also applies to ordinary chat.

6 - Ban Evasion
As I mentioned earlier, ban evasion is a very serious offence. This is the act of avoiding a ban. It is usually done by getting banned on one account, and then joining the servers on a new steam account. If you are found to be doing this, you will be permanently banned.

7 - Trading Item Rules
All items on the servers are property of MoronYard, you are only allowed to trade MoronYard items for other MoronYard items. This means you can't trade items for real money, steam games, etc. If you are found to be doing this then you will be banned.

8 - Item Scamming
Item scamming is against the rules on MoronYard, however reports must be handled via the forum in order to keep track of evidence. This is the definition of a 'scam': "A fraudulent business scheme". To prevent misreporting, I want to emphasize that UNDER-PAYING or OVER CHARGING for an item is NOT scamming.

If you intentionally mislead another player in an attempt to get an item cheap, or sell it for a high price by actually advising them that a chipped gem is worth 1m for example, then your actions WOULD be considered scamming. A transaction doesn't need to be completed for a scam report (however it does improve the validity), an evidence of someone ATTEMPTING to scam is enough for a successful report thread.

We have a lot of active and respectable players who are fully aware of the prices. If you are new, ask in the chat for advice - don't just take the word of one eager seller/buyer. If in doubt you can always ask on the forum or click here for the official price guide built by the community.

9 - Name Tags
When renaming items, refrain from using derogatory or offensive words and don't use name tags to offend other players. The staff reserves the right to delete rule-breaking items on sight. Please use common sense when applying name tags.

10 - Token Farming / AFK Avoiding
Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to bypass the AFK system on any server. If you are caught using a script or console command to avoid being detected as AFK when you are indeed AFK then you will be token banned.

Smash Rules

1 - Farming
It is against the rules to farm money, or kills. This would be allowing someone to kill you repetedly on purpose in order to get a lot of money, and a lot kills. Please, play the game properly.

2 - Spawning on the floor
There is a source engine bug which can cause you to spawn on the floor, if this takes place then please use the 'kill' command in console.

3 - Exploiting
If you use Repulsion Mines, or a Force Staff to reach places which can't be hit by blocks (such as the side, or the top of various maps) then you will be liable for a 48 hour ban.

Slope Rules

1 - Delaying the round
It is against the rules to stall rounds, and camp while playing Slope. We do have measures in place to discourage this type of behaviour, but if you are caught intentionally stalling the round then you may be punished. If you are going up the slope, and then a gift spawns please do not go down the slope to get it, unless you plan on suiciding right away to speed up the round. If you do go decide to get the gift and don'tr suicide, a staff member may slay you.

BTTT Rules

1 - Don't AFK
Please don't afk, or bypass the anti AFK systems which are in place. Not only does this risk you getting in trouble but it also causes the hindrance for the team who are trying to play the game.

2 - No Griefing
As this is a fully co-operative gamemode you are on all the same team, don't make life harder for eachother!

Puzzle Rules

1 - Common Sense
A lot of the puzzles on this gamemode will require you to use team work, and be able to work with other people. If something seems wrong, don't do it. The people you're playing with should be able to help you with a lot of things.

2 - No Griefing
As this is a fully co-operative gamemode you are on all the same team, don't make life harder for eachother!
