1. The following activities and behaviors are not tolerated and will result in punishment:

a. Speaking languages other than English

In an effort to keep server quality high and confusion low, we ask that you do not use any other language while participating in our server.

b. Harassing or personally attacking other users

Discriminating against or verbally abusing and insulting others, as well as encouraging others to do the same. This is not limited to words or images; “ghost” mentions as well as using the bot to bypass a user’s block are not tolerated.

c. Spamming in any channel

This is pretty self-explanatory. This is not the place for spam, and if you would like to do so, do it in your own server.

d. Threats or wishing harm upon any groups of people, jokingly or not

It does not matter what the group is, this server is meant to be welcoming and civil to everyone, even people you do not like. Disliking someone or something is perfectly fine, but sharing hateful comments is not.

e. Intentionally or maliciously talking in the incorrect channel

Conversations may ebb and flow into drifting off-topic, but if someone is trying to hold an on-topic conversation, you may be asked to move to another channel.

f. Impersonating other members of the community

This includes both “celebrity” and non-celebrity members. You are allowed to set your nickname and avatar the same as another user with their permission, so long as your usernames are different. Moderators reserve the right to ask all parties involved if consent was given.

g. Advertising, promoting, or advocating hacking, scripting, doxxing, or raiding

This is not exclusively limited to TF2, and punishment may be dealt without any prior warning.

h. Using an “alt account”

Having multiple accounts on the server at the same time is not allowed. If you lose access to your original account or some other exceptional circumstance occurs, contact the modteam and we will be happy to try to work something out. If you are found to have multiple accounts, we will remove all but one at our discretion. Repeated offenses will result in harsher punishments. Evading punishments with another account will result in a ban for all accounts involved.

i. Disobeying a moderator’s request

If you are asked to do something, you should do it. If the request seems unreasonable or you feel a moderator is abusing their powers, please contact the owner or send a modmail to us, either personally or anonymously. To do so, DM the Administrator (Make sure your dms are enabled for this server) !!mm “TF2 Community” [Message] or !!mm anonymous “TF2 Community” anonymous [Message].

j. Witch-hunts or “calls to action” of any kind

This includes both “celebrity” and non-celebrity members. You are allowed to set your nickname and avatar the same as another user with their permission, so long as your usernames are different. Moderators reserve the right to ask all parties involved if consent was given.

k. Modifying your username, nickname, or status in such a way that it violates a rule or breaks any of the conditions below. You may have nicknaming privileges revoked or other punishments added for repeat offenses:

i. Your profile is purposely “hoisted” or at the top of the member list.
ii. Your name is not able to be easily typed. If you wish to keep your untypeable username, set your nickname to something typeable, or vice versa. “Typeable” letters include any English alphanumeric characters.
iii. Your name breaks any of the other server rules.

2. The following content is not tolerated and will be removed at a moderator’s discretion, as well as a punishment being given where applicable:

a. Sexually explicit images or videos

This is not limited exclusively to full on nudity. Scantily-clad characters, ambiguous or unambiguous sexual body fluids and fetish materials are not tolerated. Intentionally cropped and/or edited explicit content is also not tolerated. This also applies to avatars. Any sort of text based discussions that veer to the NSFW territory such as: erotic roleplay, fetish / porn discussion, erotic fanfiction, sexually crude humor, etc. also apply.

b. Huge walls of text, ASCII art, or empty space

This includes copypastas or other types of purposely large amounts of text.

c. Political discussions or debates

Politics are a very difficult topic to moderate (and discuss) due to its potentially sensitive nature for some. Our goal as a server is to be a host to friendly and civil conversations, however political topics can be a host to unwelcome attitudes, namecalling, and open glorification of terrible people and beliefs. Such conversations include (but are not limited to): Current events, ideological and religious discussion, and discussion about your local politics. This is a server based around TF2, not around political hot takes.

d. Trolling, baiting, or shitposting, both in the text and voice channels

Do not make low-effort or spammy comments, or attempt to get reactions out of others on purpose. If you don’t have something productive to add to the conversation or just don’t like it, don’t participate. Content which is very loud (earrape) or contains large amounts of flashing lights or colors must be spoilered and forewarned. Neither mic spam nor join/leave spam is tolerated in the voice channels.

e. Discord server advertisements

This includes unsolicited invites in DMs, user status or asking others to join your server. If someone contacts you directly asking for an invite to another server, you may send them the link in DMs; this is the only type of “advertisement” allowed.

f. Begging or scam posts in any channel

This includes both “celebrity” and non-celebrity members. You are allowed to set your nickname and avatar the same as another user with their permission, so long as your usernames are different. Moderators reserve the right to ask all parties involved if consent was given.

g. Links to sketchy or illegal content

This includes IP grabbers as well as scamming or phishing links.

h. Unmarked spoilers for recent releases (movies, games, etc.)

Members should be allowed to enjoy spoiler-free discussion of them. Please make sure to add a message next to the spoiler to let others know what the spoiler is for.

3. As per the Discord Terms of Service, Guidelines, and Partnership Code of Conduct, the following rules also apply:

a. Client modifications such as BetterDiscord and “self bots” are not allowed

We can only moderate what we can see, and will only take action against those who post things that would incriminate them.

b. Be respectful towards everyone

In order to make everyone feel comfortable, the moderation team will disallow and remove any messages that contain offensive language. Excessive use will result in a warning or a harsher punishment depending on the severity.

4. For transparency, here is a quick rundown on our punishment system:

Warning # Punishment Duration
1 Mute 4 hours
2 Mute 1 day
3 Ban 1 week
4 Ban Permanent

Extra Information

  • It’s strongly advised that you allow DMs from Administrator and Miss Pauling (our moderation bots) so that they can provide information regarding your punishments. Not doing so may make appealing difficult or even impossible.
  • If you are unbanned, your next warning will automatically result in a permanent and irrevocable ban.
  • Honesty is your best option towards getting a punishment revoked. If you find yourself on the receiving end of a warning, mute, or any other type of punishment, talk to one of the moderators and tell them the truth. We are not stupid and we communicate regularly with each other; you are more likely to have your punishment revoked if you tell us what happened and why you should have your punishment revoked.
