    ***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!

    ***All rules apply to text hats as well!

    Community Rules:

    1. Do not harass other players in an intended manner. (Harassment Rule)

    Don't be a jerk/nuisance, harassment of other players isn't cool, and it's not something we tolerate. If you are asked by the user to stop bullying/annoying them or similar (or asked by staff to stop harassing a user or simiilar), then just stop.

    Stating a certain phrase players are annoyed by also falls under this rule, and so does being just plain disrespectful of everyone.

    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 10-15m, !kick, !warn + !kick, 6 hour ban.

    2. Do not abuse the mic/chat systems. (Mic Spam/Chat Spam Rule)
    Things such making noises, singing, or other things that annoy a majority of the team (or the server), count as "mic spam".

    Text spam is repeated use of the same general phrase.

    Be courteous to others, and please don't use all-caps all the time.

    *Chat messages, binds, or other chatbox based things being used repeatedly in a short time frame are effected by this rule - alongside - misusing admin chat as a non-staff.

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

    3. 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

    4. Do not advertise other GMod servers/other communities. (Advertising Rule)
    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.

    *"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 10-15m, !kick, !warn, 12 hour ban

    5. No racism/sexism. (Racism/Sexism Rule)
    Do not bully, annoy, or disrespect anyone for being a certain race, ethnicity, and/or gender. We are not asking you to be politically correct, but we are asking you to be a decent person.

    Use of racial slurs (this includes the "n-word" and any variants) isn't cool. We have a near-zero tolerance policy for violations of this rule.
    *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. (Custom Decals Rule)
    Things such as pornographic content, text sprays that violate other rules or other things that are meant to offend players/may offend players are considered "inappropriate".

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

    7. Do not impersonate other players. (Impersonation Rule)
    This rule regards intentionally changing your name to appear as someone you’re not for some ulterior motive.

    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.

    If just impersonating the person: Verbal/text warnings, !kick, !warn, 24 hour ban
    Impersonating a staff member and threatening others as said staff: Verbal/textual warning, !warn, 36 hour ban

    8. Do not evade bans/dodge punishments. (You do the Crime, You do the Time.)

    Evading/dodging includes: Disconnecting then reconnecting while muted/gagged, using paid rank (or even hired rank) privileges 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 Admin Situations. ("Admin Situations" Rule)
    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. (The English Only Advisory)
    Smaller phrases such as greetings are completely allowed, bigger phrases are a "gray area". Our staff are not all multilingual (meaning, they don't all know multiple languages), so please avoid using other languages extensively. (It just makes things less-complicated.)

    *Using another language to bypass other rules will result in a more severe punishment. You have been warned!

    Punishments: Only if violating another rule, add 8 hours to any bans issued. [So if bypassing using another language, they get one warning, then they receive an 8 hour ban.]

    11. Don’t dispute punishments on the server. (Disputing On-Server Rule)
    If you feel like a punishment was unfair, fill out a ban appeal or report it to management (via Discord PM), on-server disputes will not end well.

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

    12. Do not excessively delay rounds. (Delay Rule)
    Delaying is any action that prolongs the round for no reason. Such as shooting words, designs, or other things into walls, running around doing nothing, standing around/idling (see AFK rule), or other acts that are deemed to be "unproductive" by the gamemode rules.

    Please note: This only affects Terrorists/Traitors as Innocents are allowed to hide.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings during round, !slaynr at end of round for one round, !slaynr 2, !warn, ban 12 hours

    Server Specific Rules:

    - This section is "Marked for cleanup", and may be revised in the near future! -

    1. Do not RDM or Attempt RDM.
    RDM, or Random Death Match, is killing an Innocent or the Traitor if there is no proof of them being the traitor (i.e. randomly shooting players). Make sure they have performed a KOS action before shooting them. This rule does not apply to the traitors unless it's a team kill.
    Punishments: !slaynr 2, !slaynr 3 (if in same round as previous offense !slaynr 4), !warn, ban 12 hours
    *This rule does not apply if there are only 2 players playing.
    *Crossfire and genuine accidents can be omitted if the victim and staff online are okay with it.
    *Multiple attempted RDMs in a round may result in being slain
    *If a thrown grenade causes a player to fall to their death it counts as RDM NOT KOS
    *This includes teamkilling for traitors.

    2. Do not Mass RDM
    Mass RDM is performing 3 or more RDMS in one round. The goal of this rule is to prevent people from just going all trigger happy and to punish those who do more severely. This does not count attempted RDM. The RDM must result in the death of any nonKOS character.
    Punishments 3-5 RDM: !kick, !kick+!warn, Ban 12-24 hours
    Punishments 5+ RDM: !kick+!warn, Ban 24-36 hours, Ban 3-7 days

    *Multiple occurrences or more severe cases may result in earlier bans if staff feel as if the actions warrant it.

    *If the detective(s) start to RDM they CAN be killed by innocents for it being Detective DOES NOT GRANT YOU AN EXCEPTION.

    3. Do not bait.
    Don't say you are the Traitor or that someone else is with the intent of getting someone to RDM. Staff have logs that can tell if you were lying or not if it comes to that.
    Punishments (Misinforming): Verbal/text warnings, gag/mute, kick, !warn, ban 12 hours

    4. Do not ghost (Ghosting Rule)
    Ghosting is defined as giving away information such as who the T is while dead or where a player is while dead. This includes third party items like Skype or Discord.

    Note: Staff have the ability to force your mic on if they feel like you might be ghosting using a third party software. However should a staff abuse this ability they will be disciplined.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warning, gag/mute until next map, !kick, !warn, permanent gag/mute + 8-hour ban
    *use of 3rd party software will cause a jump to !kick for you and associated parties.

    5. Do not team.
    Traitors and Innocents are different. As a Traitor, don't purposely allow a player to live.
    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, !slaynr 2 both/all parties, !warn, ban 16 hours
    *This includes the Traitor not killing certain players on purpose for their gain or vice-versa.
    *Like with ghosting feeding information to the other side will be treated as a teaming violation as well counting towards a griefing punishment.

    6.Do not prop/body block. (Blockage Rule - Murder)
    Prop blocking: Putting a prop in front of a door or entrance with the intent of preventing people from entering.

    **While props can be destroyed, this is still not allowed.

    Body Blocking: This is standing in front of a door or entrance with the intent of preventing people from entering or exiting.

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

    7. Do not claim rooms.
    Both as Innocent and Traitor you are not allowed to claim rooms. This would include saying things along the lines of “Anyone who comes in (X area) will be killed.”
    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings during round, !slay, !slaynr at end of round for one round, !slaynr 2, !warn, ban 12 hours

    8. Do not misuse the RDM report.
    Self-explanatory, do not falsely report RDM using the RDM report. Only use it if you truly believe it was RDM. This also includes inappropriate RDM report comments (i.e using !report and having an insult or other sort of comment that would be abusive, spam or of similar nature)
    Punishments: Verbal/text warning, !kick, !warn, ban 16 hours

    9. Do not throw incendiary grenades or discombobulators before the round begins.
    The round officially begins when the innocent, detective, and traitors are decided. Before then, during the prep period, you may not throw incendiary grenades or discombobulators.
    Punishments: Verbal/Texual Warning, !slay, !slaynr up to 3 rounds, !kick, !warn+!kick, ban 8 hours
    NOTE: Sometimes this won't be possible as a CM+ has changed the setting temporarily.
    NOTE 2: This is a
    temporary rule until the setting is officially changed.
    NOTE 3: For the 3rd punishment, the amount of rounds in slaynr is dependent on the following:
    Pushes a player or does nothing - 1 round
    Damages players (threw pre round ends but explodes after) - 2 rounds
    Kills a player - 3 rounds

    Kill on Sight:
    Actions that warrant KOS
    Another player shoots you.
    You see them shoot someone else and the other person isn't a Traitor. Or KOS active.
    They possess a Traitor weapon without having killed one when not the detective.
    Shooting the detective.
    Throwing a grenade or fire grenade towards or at other players
    Entering the Traitor room.
    Killing other players with map-props.
    alt-fire/pushing players with a crow bar towards a map hazard
    Destroying the tester
    Marked by the DNA Scanner for a player who was not KOS**


    Actions that DO NOT warrant KOS

    Following a player.
    Randomly shooting unless directly at another player.
    Not wanting to be tested/refusal to be tested.
    Player claims to be Traitor
    Throwing a smoke grenade at players
    alt-fire/pushing players with a crow bar NOT towards a map hazard
    Using team chat as innocents to single out the traitor

    "Special Cases" Community Rules:

    13. Do not beg for points. (Begging Rule) [Added due to issues]
    All points can be earned by just playing the game and meeting objectives. Asking once or twice is not begging, however, if you are told to stop, then stop.

    Please note, skill points are not “handed out”, they are earned. Do not beg for them.

    Punishments: Verbal/text warnings, !gag/!mute for 3 rounds, !kick, !warn, permanent gag/mute

    14. Do not abuse the !request command (Request Abuse Rule) [Added due to issues]
    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.

    15. Do not encourage rule breaking (The "Encouraging Trouble" Rule) [Added due to issues]
    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 for the attempt.

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

    16. Do not Grief (Only for Multiple Consecutive Offenses) [Added due to issues]
    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.

    **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

    17. Do not tell anyone to leave the server [Added due to issues]
    This is a public server, not your personal playground. Everyone has the right to be on the server and have fun. Do not tell anyone to leave the server for any reason.

    *If a player is just causing trouble, use !request to report it, or file a report to a staff member/manager.

    **If you are RDMing to try to force others off the server, you will only get a warning followed by a combined ban for RDM and this rule. There is no 2nd chance.

    Punishments -
    If caught while you are online: verbal/textual warning, !warn + kick, ban 72 hours
    If caught after you left:
    ban 72 hours

    V This section is "Marked for cleanup", and may be revised in the near future! V

    As an Innocent, it is your job to survive the round without being killed or by killing the Traitor.

    As the Traitor, it is your job to kill everyone without being revealed as the Traitor.

    The position swapper looks like a pistol and from a distance it may not be distinguishable from other pistols therefore if you are not sure DO NOT CALL KOS. If an RDM report is filed and it is discovered you are at a range where staff feel like there is no way you could tell the difference it will be counted as RDM.

    If an action is not listed here under KOS or not KOS you are to assume it is not KOS until management and TTT staff decide if it is or is not a KOS action.

    As the Detective, you cannot kill solely based on suspicion. Detectives must follow the same rules regarding KOS as the other innocents.

    **If a Detective calls a false or fake KOS on someone for "DNA Evidence" and they are killed by another player the Detective will face the RDM punishment NOT the player who killed them unless victim, staff and the Detective all agree it was a genuine mistake or accident.

    ***The Detective is not excused from RDM and you can call KOS on a Detective if they do any KOS action.

    Actual Notes:

    ***By playing on this server, you agree to our Player Agreement
    ***If you think you or another player were banned incorrectly, go here
    ***For a list of current staff, go here
    ***For a list of known exploits/illegal spots, go here
