    ***Are subject to change
    ***Repeats of offenses may result in more severe punishments!!!
    ***All times are the maximum amount of time you may be punished for first offenses.
    ***Bans will not be issued for first time offenders aside from cheating.

    ***Our staff take a "hands off" approach to allow for players to enjoy themselves so unless you are cheating, breaking rules intentionally or players are complaining staff are not required to get involved.
    Community Rules:

    1. Do not disrupt the gaming environment

    1a. Don't be a jerk/nuisance, if players are complaining about your behavior be it in chat, in the mic or whatever just stop. If you fail to do so staff can and will take action against you. That being said, if said action is part of how the game actually goes this rule will not apply.

    1b. This also means we ask that all users respect one another. Do not go off arguing, insulting and so on to another user or users. If you have any nasty comments keep them to yourself, all it will do is cause a scene where you are likely to be banned.

    1c. Racism, Sexism, and so on directly pointed at another user is not acceptable cases like this will be handled with severe consequences.

    We do understand jokes, however, all people involved need to be "in on it". It's not a joke to us if we don't know it's a joke, so make sure the staff know!

    *Using offensive usernames to harass a player also falls under this rule.
    **Harassment via use of on-server private messages is equally unacceptable.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warning, gag/mute 15m, !kick, !warn + !kick, 6 hour ban.

    2. No cheating/exploiting. (General Cheating/Exploiting Rule)
    In most cases our anti-cheat system will pick up cheats and automatically kick the offender. However, if the offender bypasses the anti-cheat, they will be handled severely.

    Exploiting is abusing things overlooked by map developers or other systems, such as glitches, map clipping, EXP/Perk exploits, illegal spots, etc.

    Exploiting (General): Verbal/text warnings, !slay, !kick, !warn, 12 hour ban. Hacking/Cheating: Confirmed hacking/cheating will result in a permanent ban

    3. Do not advertise other GMod servers/other communities. (Advertising Rule)
    We ask that other players do not advertise communities on our server. That being said discussing others is okay. Do not actively encourage others to join another server though.

    *"Clan tags" are allowed. Examples: “[RG] Rucksack”, “[CG] Averion”, similar, and etc.

    ** ONLY FOR OFFICIALLY-ALLIED COMMUNITIES LISTED BELOW! For "Allied Communities", please be mindful of our traffic. We need players too!

    Allied Communities: None

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, gag/mute 15m, !kick, !warn, 12 hour ban

    4. Do not evade bans/dodge punishments.
    If you are gagged/muted do not reconnect to remove the gag or mute.If you are a donator with certain permissions do not use them to undo punishments given to you or other players. If you feel as if or if someone is abusing their powers as staff or as a donor with permissions we encourage you to contact management. You will not get in trouble for reporting what you suspect as abuse.

    Punishments: If about to be punished 6 hour ban, if about to be banned add 6 hours to the ban

    5. Do not backseat moderate
    If you are not staff do not get involved if staff are dealing with something unless asked, if you are not staff do not try to tell others they are breaking rules. Do not attempt to impersonate a member of our staff. Finally we ask that you don't dispute punishments in public on the server if you wish to do so we ask that you do so in private with the admins.

    Remember all of our admins have rank tags next to their names as well being listed in our forums. If someone is not on said list you do not have to listen to them!

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, gag/mute 30m, !kick, !warn, 6-hour ban

    6. Do not idle
    Don't just sit in a spectating team, or stand in one area (unless you are hiding when appropriate). If you are spectating please try and tell staff you are still there.
    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings during round, !slaynr at end of round for one round, !slaynr 2, !warn, ban 12 hours

    7. Do not tell others to leave the server
    Rage Gaming Murder is a public server that anyone can join. Do not make others feel unwelcomed just because you want to play with your friends or for any other reason.


    If the player isn't vulgar: verbal/textual warning, kick, !warn, ban 24 hours
    If the player is vulgar: verbal/textual warning, !warn/kick, ban 48 hours

    Non-vulgar group: Everyone in on it gets a warning, members of the group that continue are kicked, then !warn, then ban 48 hours
    Vulgar Group: Everyone in on it gets a warning, members of the group that continue get a !warn/kick, then ban 72 hours

    Note: If a player does continue, but they weren't vulgar before and are now vulgar about it, they will be punished according to the vulgar punishments. The same applies for members of a group doing it.

    Server Specific Rules (Revisions WIP):

    1.Do not RDM.
    RDM or Random Death Match is killing an innocent bystander or the murderer if there is no proof of them being the murderer. This could include using props or baiting someone with a gun to kill someone. Additionally do not suicide or use a kill bind to evade being a certain role.
    Punishments: verbal/textual warning, !slay, !slay + !slay at the beginning of next round, !kick, !warn, ban 12 hours
    *This rule does not apply during RPG madness, if there are only 2 players playing, or if the round is over.

    2.Do not team.
    The murderer and bystanders are different. The murderer should not allow a bystander to live without good reason such as allowing them to get a gun or strategically picking players. This would also include ghosting.
    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, !slaynr 2 both/all parties, !warn, ban 16 hours

    3.Do not block. (Blockage Rule - Murder)
    Do not make it so players cannot enter a room or area for any reason. Do not camp on the gun as the murderer to keep other players from grabbing it.

    **While the murderer can destroy most props, it is still prop blocking and the murderer might not actually be able to destroy the blockage. This also - obviously - prevents others from entering the room who don't have a weapon.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, !slay, slay + !slaynr 1, !warn, ban 12 hours


    *If a player is just causing trouble, use !request to report it, or file a report to a staff member/manager. If staff are online start a message with "@" to send a message to the staff chat channel. All players can send messages to it however only staff can read it. you may also use "!p [user]" to send a direct message in game to a player.
