C. Rules of the Code of Conduct
I. Courtesy RulesI.1. Harassment of a player or of a member of a Ryzom Team (Major/Minor Offence: depending on the degree, the Support Team will decide on each case)
Provocation and harassment, whether verbal or through gameplay actions, are prohibited in-game as well as on Ryzom's chat channels: insults, threats of all kinds (under cover of roleplay or not), provocation via emotes or other, but also the chain kill of a character, its campfires or its mektoubs (except during outpost battles), repeated or regular pullovers of mobs on the same character... This list is not exhaustive.
The Support team reserves the right to prepare a file if it deems a case to be proven harassment, as well as to take the decisions that are necessary based on the seriousness of the facts.
I.2. Slander or rumour about a Ryzom Team member or Winch Gate (Major/Minor offence: depending on the degree, the Support Team will decide on each case)
Spreading rumours, false accusations or lies against a member of the Ryzom Team or against Winch Gate, in order to harm them or their reputation or honour, is strictly prohibited.
The Support team reserves the right to make appropriate decisions based on the seriousness of the facts.
I.3. Insults, rudeness, disrespect towards a player or a Ryzom Team member (Minor Offence)
It is strictly prohibited to insult, be rude to, or show lack of respect towards other players, either directly or indirectly, under cover of roleplay or not, and/or in a language that they may or may not understand. Support team has the right to define the seriousness of the exchanged insults and to punish them at its own discretion.
I.4. Disobedience of Support member's instructions (Minor Offence)
When a member of Support contacts you, you must respond as quickly as possible and follow his or her instructions carefully, otherwise you will incur a penalty.
I.5. Disturbance of an in-game event (Minor Offence)
As respect towards the players participating in an event and towards the Event Team that prepared it, players not concerned with this event are asked not to come and disturb the event by using words or actions that are inappropriate or irrelevant. Any abuse may be punished.
If you would like to interact with a scheduled event, please contact the Event Team (firstname.lastname@example.org), which will judge the admissibility of your request.
I.6. Account sharing (No Offence)
Sharing a player account is strongly discouraged.
The support team totally disengages itself from any problem resulting from such sharing; logging into the account without the owner's agreement, theft of items belonging to a character on the account or to his guild (whether sold, exchanged or destroyed), change of faction, nation or renown of a character on the account, appropriation of the account by another player, etc.
In case of account sharing, the account owner remains responsible for the words and actions of his characters and therefore incurs a sentence in case of violation of the Code of Conduct.
I.7. Bad behaviour on a chat channel of the game (Game server, IRC, forums and Rocket chat included) (Minor Offence)
Universe channels are primarily channels of mutual help (questions-answers about the game, request for help, rez ...). They are also open to any discussion of interest to most of the community. If not, please use the /tell or a private channel. Flooding is therefore moderated there and trolling, spamming (action of repeating or publishing several messages in a row within a few minutes) and flaming are prohibited.
