Rules & Guidelines

Last Updated on December 8, 2017

These policies are applicable to any user in all official community platforms, without exceptions to staff and donators.
Repeat offenders will always face harsher punishments, regardless of the violation, up to the highest punishment of a permanent ban.

  1. We are mainly a mature-adult community.
    1. For our younger community members, be aware that you will likely run into adult content and discussions in our game servers, Discord server, and Steam group.
    2. As mature members of the community, we can tolerate a reasonable level of adult content and profanity solely for its comical value that everyone can agree on.
    3. We do not tolerate any form of disrespect and harassment towards anyone around our community. Doing so will result in appropriate disciplinary action.

  2. We do not tolerate any form of fraudulent activity.
    1. Do not use any form of deception, thievery, lies, or anything that is underhanded to take advantage of or steal from another user.
    2. Doing so will result in a permanent ban. Scammers on SteamRep will be barred from connecting to our game servers.

  3. Do not abuse our abuse reporting tools.
    1. Help us as much as we want to help you. Be honest and patient in your report as an available moderator comes to access and resolve the situation.
    2. Please only use !calladmin on players who have directly violated this code of conduct. Repetitive abuses of the system will result in a temporary ban.

  4. Do not spam in any voice chat, text chat, or forum.
    1. We do not want any content that is hateful, intrusive, obscene, offensive, off-topic, and racist. Repeat offenders will have their communication privileges revoked.
    2. Music spamming in game is tolerated until anyone asks for the music to stop for any reason. Failure to comply, when asked, will result in similar punishments.
    3. Promoting abuse of cheating software and/or exploits will result in a permanent ban, regardless of whether if the cheats/exploits were ever abused.

  5. Spawn camping and related camping is somewhat tolerated within reason.
    1. If the opposing team asks you to back off, please do so. An exception to this is if the enemy is consistently engaging from a distance at spawn.
    2. Give the enemy a fair fight on the vast space of the map provided. Those who fail to comply, when asked, will be kicked from the server.

  6. We do not tolerate abuse of any exploits or cheating software.
    1. Exploit abusers who fail to comply, when warned, will be temporarily banned. Abused features may also be removed, ruining the gaming experience for all.
    2. To an extent, cheaters are automatically detected by the server and banned. If you're a shitty enough player to use cheats, expect the banhammer to swing hard.

  7. Do not attempt or threaten to bypass our filters or do damage to our servers.
    1. Doing so will result in a permanent ban, regardless of any punishment (if any) that the violator was initially invoked with.
  • How can I report a player in game for being abusive or using cheats?
    • Use the !calladmin command in game and follow the instructions in the dialog box.
  • How can I offer suggestions or ask other questions to staff?
  • How can I gain access to the server features and commands?
    • Simply join our Steam group, also accessible by typing !group, and then wait a minute for the [Member] tag to which you'll have access to the features in the !menu, free!
  • Advertisements! How can I disable these annyoing advertisements?
    • Just like getting access to server features, just become a member of our Steam group and the advertisements will go away after a minute.
  • I'm friendly! People won't stop killing me even though I'm a friendly!
    • Note that you must be a member of our Steam group to use commands. To toggle friendly mode, type the !friendly command in your spawn room.
  • What happened to the European servers? Are they gone for good?
    • Those servers were taken down as the owner has been diverting more of his paycheck to raise his newborn children. (Congrats!) When he gets more stable funding or support from the community, he'll certainly bring back those servers.
  • I reported someone already. Why has no one come respond?
    • If none of the staff members are available, you should collect some evidence (such as screenshots or demos) of the abuse so we can use it to punish them later.
  • How can I appeal against my punishment?
    • Go to our Appellate Forum and follow the instructions in the pinned topic.
  • How can I apply to become a moderator?
  • How can I become an administrator?
    • Only active and experienced moderators can be promoted to administrator.

These policies are applicable to all moderators in all official community platforms, especially Trial Moderators.
If you witness a belligerent staff member in violation of this code, please report them directly to the administrators/owner.

  1. ALWAYS provide honest assistance to anyone in any way that you can. You do not have to go completely out of your way, but at least offer some simple tips like gameplay tactics, safe trading practices, server commands, etc.
  2. ALWAYS be polite and courteous to everyone that you may encounter. If people are making inflammatory remarks about you or anyone else, simply mute and/or gag them and let the conversation die.
  3. ALWAYS be proactive in detecting, stopping, and preventing violations of the community rules. Over time, you will learn to find cheaters silently killing everyone or someone spamming the entire Bee Movie script in chat.
  4. ALWAYS collect credible evidence to supplement punishments. This can be done by taking multiple screenshots or by recording a demo in game. Evidence is used to prove that the accused has committed a disruptive act and disproves any disputes.
  5. ALWAYS promote our community in any way that you ethically can. This can be simple acts like inviting your friends to join you in game, inviting them to join our Steam group, taking screenshots or videos of your gameplay in our servers, etc.
  6. ALWAYS report any problems, exploits, and/or feedback to your peers and admins. It is equally important that any problem or exploit that can be abused should be downplayed and suppressed to prevent any further abuse of such exploits.
  7. NEVER have an open argument with anyone about our policies because doing so will poorly represent you and your community. If anyone has a problem with the rules or a punishment, link them to the appellate forum and let them discuss it there.
  8. NEVER abuse your moderator privileges, even as a joke. Your moderator commands should never give you or anyone an unfair advantage in game and should never be used in retaliation by a personal vendetta. You will be demoted and banned.
  9. NEVER invoke punishments that are solely based on rumors and heresy. When people report abuse by simply saying that they are cheating or harassing, always access the situation and look for factual evidence before invoking warnings or punishments.
  10. NEVER use your moderator powers with favoritism and impartiality. Always treat everyone fairly and equally from providing assistance to invoking punishments. This may be difficult, but it is important. See A Theory of Justice by John Rawls for a good read.
  11. NEVER expose content and discussions that are only shared in private discussion forums and channels. In our staff discussions and #staffroom, we discuss many community-related matters that are not appropriate to be known by anyone else in public.
  12. NEVER publicly criticize your peers about moderating. Don't let your peers down. If you have any constructive criticism with regards to the role of a staff member, save it for private messaging or staff discussions.
