Rules and Regulations

 

In-Game Rules

 

1. Flaming, Disrespect, Harassment, and Inappropriate Content

FuryPS welcomes all types of members to join our community. Therefore, members will be respectful to one another no matter who they are or what they believe in. Antagonizing members outside of playful banter will not be tolerated. If you have seen someone breaking this rule or you feel like someone is antagonizing you, please report them on the forums to a staff member showing adequate proof of the crime.

Examples:

a. The use of inappropriate, slanderous and/or disrespectful language towards another’s race, belief system, ethics, or sexual orientation is not tolerated whatsoever. To avoid minor antagonizing, we ask you to use the ignore system InGame.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = A warning or any mute lasting up to 24 hours.

Second Offense = 48-hour mute.

Third Offense = Permanent mute.

 

2. Advertising

Examples:

a. Widespread, ordinary links (YouTube, RuneLocus, Rune-Server, etc.) are acceptable and will usually be allowed unless someone decides to take advantage of this privilege.

b. Discussing other active servers InGame or on the forums is absolutely not allowed. Anyone caught advertising another active RSPS will be immediately muted and/or banned. If you believe your situation allows an exception, please ask an administrator first or else you will face the same punishment as the common advertiser.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = Any mute of 24 hours or more, depending on the severity. 

Second Offense = Permanent IP-ban.

 

3. Spamming

Everyone plays this server to have a good time and no one has a good time when someone is spamming. Even if the spam is to be taken as a joke, a player has the right to report you and you can be punished for this.

Examples:

a. If a member happens to be a donator, flooding ::yell with your messages is not allowed. Be wary of this when you are one of the only members using the ::yell feature because you may be sending messages in longer than 15 second intervals, but there is no other text to break it up.

b. An auto-typer is allowed in the public chat, but it has to be set to 15 second intervals between each message.

c. Flooding the chatbox with messages even if they are in 15 seconds or longer intervals. If no one else is chatting to break up your text, players might report you for spamming and there is a chance you will be punished for it.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = A warning or any mute lasting up to 24 hours.

Second Offense = 48-hour mute.

Third Offense = Permanent mute.

 

4. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats

Misleading links are not allowed. Although your excuse may be that you were trying to prank your friends, people have the right to be lead to the page that was rightfully advertised by your link and you can be punished for your “prank”. Almost anytime this rule is broken, it will result in your account being permanently banned from FuryPS.

 

5. Punishment Evasion

Punishments are given for a reason. If you feel that you were unfairly punished, we urge you to appeal your punishment on the forums. Do not create/log-on to another account in order to continue talking or to beg for your account to be unmuted/banned.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = 24-hour ban.

Second Offense = One Week IP-ban.

Third Offense = Permanent IP-ban.

 

6. Real World Trading

The only time any kind of real world trading is allowed is if it is approved on this thread: Donation Options Thread Even if the trade does not happen, any attempt at real world trading will be follow the same punishments. If items are found that have been acquired via real world trading, they will be wiped from the account.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = 24- hour ban.

Second Offense = Permanent IP-ban.

 

7. Account Sharing

Account sharing is allowed on FuryPS, but do it at your own risk. If your account is stolen, hacked, or wiped, it is not a staff member’s fault and the staff team will do nothing to help you. We highly recommend for you to keep your password safe and not share it with anyone.

 

8. Third Party Software

Third party softwares allow for players to receive unfair advantages and are therefore not allowed. The only exceptions to this is are auto-typers (View Rule 3, Section B for details) and auto-clickers which can be punished if used in a way that violates our set rules. 

Auto-clicking is allowed if you are not away from your keyboard.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = A warning or a 24-hour ban.

Second Offense = One week ban.

Third Offense = Permanent ban.

 

9. Multi-Logging

Multi-Logging is when one person logs into multiple accounts at one time. This is allowed, but if it this privilege is abused where people are multi-logging in order to gain an unfair advantage, then both accounts will be punished.

Examples:

a. Multi-Logging to increase the speed of skilling.

b. Multi-Logging to increase the speed of bossing.

c. Multi-Logging to gain an unfair advantage in PvP situations.

d. Multi-Logging to skill on one account and do bossing, PvP, or any kind of skilling on another account.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = 24-hour ban on both accounts.

Second Offense = One week ban on both accounts.

Third Offense = Permanent ban on both accounts.

 

10. Encouraging Others to Break Rules

Although you yourself may not be breaking the rule, encouraging other people to break a rule can result in a punishment for you as well.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = A warning or any mute lasting up to 24 hours.

Second Offense = One week mute.

Third Offense = Permanent mute and/or ban.

 

11. Bug Abuse

Any bugs or glitches found within FuryPS should be immediately reported to a staff member either on the forums or through a PM InGame. Our server is and will always be working toward perfection, but there will be bugs/glitches.  If a player is found abusing these bugs/glitches, then they will be punished. Safe-spotting monsters/bosses that are not meant to be safe-spotted counts as a bug and you will be punished the same as if you were abusing any other bug. 

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = At least a 24-hour ban, depending on the severity.

Second Offense = One week ban.

Third Offense = Permanent ban.

 

12. Refunds (Scams, Disconnects, etc.)

Examples:

a. If you lost items due to a disconnection, make a thread about it showing adequate proof of your losses. Most of the time, disconnections will not be refunded.

b. Donations will not be refunded at any time.

c. If the server has been reset or rolled back, then a player can request for their items back by showing adequate proof of their losses on the forums.

d. Scammed members will only be refunded if the following evidence is provided:

            - Video Evidence of the scam.

            - The person who scammed you admits to the scam.

Note – Photo reports will NOT be accepted as proof of a scam.

e. Hacking refunds will only be given if adequate proof of the hack is provided on a thread on the forums.

f. Glitch refunds will only be refunded if adequate proof of the glitch causing you to lose your items is provided on a thread on the forums. You also have to prove that you owned the items before the time of the glitch. False reports will result in a deny of a refund and a punishment.

 

13. Player versus Player (PvP)

Examples:

a. PvP Point Farming will result in an automatic ban. A second offense will be a permanent ban.

b. Luring is allowed as long as it is not done over ::yell or through the “Help” Clan Chat. Luring a staff member by asking them for help will result in an instant 24-hour ban and any items stolen will be retrieved and returned.

 

14. Invading Other Communities

Invading other community will result in a permanent ban from FuryPS. We understand how difficult the process of creating and growing an RSPS is and we respect every server out there. Therefore, we do not approve of any kind of advertising on any server. If we receive word from another server of one of our players advertising, we will find that player and ban them.

 

15. VPN Voting

VPN voting is when someone changes their IP Address in order to continuously vote on the voting pages in order to obtain the voting rewards. This is not allowed for two reasons: one, it can result in our server being banned from voting page and two, it gives the player an unfair advantage of voting rewards which will saturate the market with voting items.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = Warning.

Second Offense = 24-hour ban.

Third Offense = Permanent ban.

 

16. Staff Impersonation

Impersonating a staff member to take advantage of another player will result in a permanent ban. If you see anyone impersonating a staff member, report them immediately.

 

17. DDoS Threats or DDoS’ing

DDoS’ing extremely simplified is when a player disconnects you from your internet. If someone is threatening to DDoS you, report them immediately. If you are being DDoS’ed, create a report thread with proof of the DDoS’ing. If caught DDoS’ing, you will be permanently IP-banned from our server.

Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

First Offense = 24-hour mute.

Second Offense = 48-hour ban.

Third Offense = Permanent ban.

 

Forum Rules

 

Forum punishments go by a warning system. Warnings can be given by staff members for members breaking any of the rules. Staff members will give warnings points based off of the severity of each situation.  

5 Warning Points = Restrict from Posting for 24 hours.

10 Warning Points = Restrict from Posting for 72 hours and ban for 24 hours.

15 Warnings Points = Restrict from Posting indefinitely and ban for 72 hours.

20 Warning Points = Indefinite ban.  

 

1. Inappropriate Language and Content

Any content posted onto the forums that is deemed inappropriate can result in warning points added to your account or temporary bans depending on the severity. Keep the forums clean.

Examples:

a. Flaming, obsessive cursing, threats, harassing, or obnoxious trolling.

b. Pornographic material.

c. Content promoting rule and/or law breaking.

 

2. Advertising

Examples:

a. Widespread, ordinary links (YouTube, RuneLocus, Rune-Server, etc.) are acceptable and will usually be allowed unless someone decides to take advantage of this privilege.

b. Discussing other active servers InGame or on the forums is absolutely not allowed. Anyone caught advertising another active RSPS will be immediately restrained from posting or banned. If you believe your situation allows an exception, please ask an administrator first or else you will face the same punishment as the common advertiser.

 

3. Spamming

Examples:

a. Posts that consist of one word are considered spam and will be deleted off of the thread and the poster will receive a warning point. This rule does not apply in the Off-Topic section.

b. Please take a second to consider where you are posting a thread before you do. Posting a thread in the wrong section will not earn you any warning points, but your thread will probably be moved.

c. Grave digging is when someone posts on an inactive thread. There can be exceptions to this if the player is posting useful information, but for the most part, do not post on any thread that is over a month old.

 

4. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats

Misleading links are not allowed. Although your excuse may be that you were trying to prank your friends, people have the right to be lead to the page that was rightfully advertised by your link and you can be punished for your “prank”. Almost anytime this rule is broken, it will result in your account being permanently banned from FuryPS. Hacking an account will result in a permanent IP-ban. Threatening another player will result in warning points or an automatic ban depending on the severity.

 

5. Backseat Moderation

Backseat moderation is when a regular player acts like a moderator and tries to handle situations a staff member is needed for. This often just causes even more problems and can even result in warning points being given to the backseat moderator who is probably just trying to help. If you feel like you have the answer to a situation, report the thread/post and a staff member will read your description.

 

6. Encouraging Others to Break Rules

Although you yourself may not be breaking the rule, encouraging other people to break a rule can result in a punishment for you as well. Most of the time, this is when veteran players will try and take advantage of newer players and this just leads to a toxic community. Treat your fellow players with respect.

 

7. Influencing Polls

Asking people to vote for a certain option on a poll is strictly prohibited; this will result in your vote not counting and you will receive warning points.

 

8. Reputation Boosting

The reputation system is meant for players showing other players how much they appreciate their content. If a player bribes, threatens, or even just asks players to boost their reputation count, they will be punished by having their reputation count reset as well as receive warning points.

 

9. Chatbox

The chatbox is implemented for the use of general purposes without having to post on the forums. Although it is a great convenience, it is a privilege and can be taken away if abused.

Examples:

a. Flaming another member in the chatbox will result in a 24-hour mute from the chatbox and warning points added to your account.

b. Flooding/Spamming the chatbox will also result in a 24-hour mute from the chatbox and warning points added to your account.

c. Staff Impersonation will result in a ban from the forums.

d. Advertising will result in a permanent ban from the forums.
