    THE RULES OF SANDBOX
    ***Are subject to change
    ***Repeats of offenses may result in more severe punishments!!!
    ***If you have an !warn active for 2 rules and get banned you will be banned for both and their lengths will stack!

    ***For Username violations you will be punished as such: asked to change username, kick if the name is not changed after 1 round (5 min), !warn, ban 6-16 hours
    ***All rules not counting the advertisement rule affect text hats!
    ***Make sure to read our Player Agreement for information on our Harassment Policy
    ***Rules are a bit more lax however they will be punished as noted here but a few more warnings will be given
    ***Unlike other servers Sandbox IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE MONITORED BY STAFF this means if there is an issue please use !report, that being said misuses of the command will be more severe


    General Rules:
    1. Do not harass other players in an intended/mean/disrespectful manner.
    If you are being mean to a person and they tell you to stop or they ask staff to tell you to stop, then just stop. Being mean in a jokingly way is okay as long as the person understands it's a joke.

    This includes sensitive topics like, but not limited to, rape and suicide. Usernames that target specific players in a disrespectful way are not allowed though.

    Harassment is a zero tolerance rule as defined in our Player Agreement as such it will be strict.

    Please note: Use of in server private messages can still be seen by management and staff, and harassment via PM is equally unacceptable.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warning, gag/mute 10-15m, !kick, !warn + !kick, 6 hour ban.
    Punishments (Harassment): 1 Verbal/Text warning, !kick, !warn + !kick, ban 24+ hours

    2. Do not mic/chat spam.
    Things such making noises, singing, or other things that annoy a majority of the team, count as mic spam. Text spam is repeated use of the same general phrase.

    Chat messages, binds, or other chatbox based things being used repeatedly in a short time frame are effected by this rule.


    Please note: This includes stating a certain phrase players are annoyed by and misusing admin chat as a non-staff. Be courteous to others, and please don't use all-caps all the time, it's considered "yelling".

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, gag/mute 10-15m, !kick, !warn, permanent gag/mute.

    3. No cheating/hacking/exploiting.
    In most cases our anti-cheat system will pick it up and automatically kick the offender. However, if the user continues to connect and be kicked by the anti-cheat, they will be punished accordingly.

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


    Punishments:
    Exploiting (General): Verbal/text warnings, !slay, !kick, !warn, 12 hour ban.

    Hacking/Cheating: If confirmed hacking/cheating, permanent ban.

    4. Do not advertise other gmod servers/other communities.
    This would be posting things like chat messages or using voice chat to encourage other players to join another server in Gmod or another server group/community whether it's of similar gamemodes or not.

    Please Note:

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

    However, Text Hats are no-longer allowed.


    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, gag/mute 10-15m, !kick, !warn, 12 hour ban.

    5. No racism/sexism.
    Do not put down anyone for being a certain race, ethnicity, and/or gender. Refrain from using "those words", slurs, and any stereotypical phrase that would be considered racist or sexist. Only you can safely check your privilege.

    Please Note: This includes being in one's username!


    Punishments: Verbal/text warning, gag/mute 10-15m, !kick, !warn, 16 hour ban.

    6. Do not post inappropriate sprays.
    Things such as pornographic content, text sprays that violate other rules or other things that may offend players are considered "inappropriate".

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, !kick, !warn, 16 hour ban.

    7. Do not impersonate other players.
    This rule regards intentionally changing your name to appear as someone you’re not as a means to annoy and/or appear as said “person”.

    Please note: If the other person doesn't care, this rule does not come into effect. Also, if a name is common on the server and 2 players have it then it is not breaking this rule.

    Punishments:

    Non-staff to non-staff: Verbal/text warnings, !kick, !warn, 24 hour ban.
    Non-staff to staff: Verbal/text warnings, !kick, !warn, 36 hour ban.
    Staff to non-staff: Verbal/text warning + strike, !warn with demotion, 24-36 hour ban
    Staff to staff: Verbal/text warning + strike, !warn with demotion, 36-48 hour ban and fired

    8. Do not evade bans/dodge punishments.

    Evading/dodging includes: Disconnecting then reconnecting while muted/gaged, using paid rank (or even hired rank) powers to ungag or other ways of avoiding things.

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

    9. Stay out of an admin's business.
    If staff are dealing with a situation, and did not directly ask for your input, please stay out of it. If staff need your help and/or input in a situation, they will ask you.

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

    10. Please use English, unless it's a basic phrase.
    Smaller phrases such as greetings are allowed. On larger phrases, if a staff asks you to translate, then please do so.

    Use of other languages to bypass other rules will result in more severe punishments!

    11. Don’t dispute punishments on the server.
    If you feel like a punishment was unfair, fill out an appeal/report it to management, on-server disputes will not be tolerated.

    Punishments for attempted on-server disputes: Verbal/text warnings, gag/mute 10-15m, !kick, !warn, 6-hour ban.

    12. Do not abuse the !request command
    Self-explantory rule, !request is designed for reports, not whatever nasty opinion you have of a staff member or player.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warning, !kick, + !warn, 24-hour ban.



    13. Do not encourage rule breaking

    Encouraging others to break the rules is just as bad as breaking them yourself. If they end up breaking the rule (or you say in general and someone does) you will be punished along with them. Even if they don’t, you will still be punished accordingly.

    Punishments: Verbal/Text warning, mute/gag 15-30 minutes, !kick, !warn, permanent mute + gag

    14. Do not Grief

    Griefing has many definitions that are already covered by other rules. This rule is for breaking multiple rules within a set time frame of 30 min. If you surpass the verbal/text warning on up to 3 or more rules then you are then considered to be "Griefing" and this rule comes into effect.

    Please Note: This includes excessive team-swapping for all servers that the rule applies to.


    Another note: Breaking multiple chat rules and being muted for one will count as being muted for all and if it's more than 3 this rule will trigger.

    IMPORTANT: Breaking ANY of the rules after a grief !warn is issued OR surpassing a verbal/text warn on a different rule automatically applies the first ban of this rule

    Punishments: !warn (All three offenses filed as "Griefing"), 24-48 hour ban, 3-7 day ban, permanent ban

    Server Specific Rules:

    Like with the user sprays do not use the spray paint item to write or draw anything that would be breaking any rules or use it to draw sexual imagery (I.e drawing genitals with it)

    If you use it to deface another users work it will go into a greifing punishment if it's severe enough.


    5. Obey, follow and respect event rules
    At times things such as playing a Deathrun map will occur. This is an event and rules will be found within the respective post under Sandbox>General.

    While you will not be required to play the event you cannot for any reason purposely interfere with the the event.
