Forums and Discord rules!

Recommended Posts

If you use the Asteria Forums, please familiarize yourself with our Rules & Guidelines for the forums. We expect all members using our forums to abide by these rules.Keep in mind these rules can alter over time at any given moment.The Asteria Staff team reserves the right to terminate any of your account if in violation of any of the rules stated below. If you have any questions or concerns about our forum rules, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a forum staff member.

Flaming & Trolling
Flaming, also known as bashing, is the hostile interaction towards another internet user, often involving the use of profanity. Small amount of flame is acceptable. Staff members shall act accordingly when the flaming becomes excessive. Infractions may vary from a warning to post banning depends on the severity of the content.
Trolling is the deliberate act of attacks towards a content or an internet user. Trolling does not always offend another nor can it be aimed at anyone but there are cases when it is inappropriate. Mild trolling is acceptable but once again, staff members shall act accordingly if the content is considered offensive.

Advertising
We have zero tolerance towards the advertisement of other servers and websites. The violation of this rule results in a permanent ban from the forums.

Security
Exploiting or attempting to exploit loopholes, vulnerabilities, or bugs will result in the permanent removal of your accounts. Any activities with an objective of violating the confidentiality or harming of the forums users will result in an immediate termination of your accounts.


IP Ban & Ban Evasion
IP bans as reserved for the highest-level offences, including (but not limited to): DDoS, Hacking, etc. In some cases, IPbans may be handed to repeat offenders of lower-level rules. Players that have been IP banned are not welcomed back and any attempt to return to the forums under a new name / IP will result in another ban.

Misposting
Misposting is considered spamming to a degree. This can easily be avoided simply by reading the section title and reading any relevant announcements or pinned threads within that section. If you are unsure about where to post a thread, private message our forum staff or a member of our community.


Spam Posting
Spam posting is basically the act of posting useless and irrelevant things on topics. If you are going to post something that has nothing to do with the topic, then don't post. Depending on the content of the post, you may receive a verbal warning or a warning point.


Hanging Quotes
Hanging quotes is essentially quoting someone's post and just posting it. It looks trashy on the forums and it only results in spam posting. If you have nothing relevant to say toward the topic, don't post.


Faking Evidence
Any form of faking evidence will result in a permanent ban.


Inappropriate Content
We have younger players on the forums and in-game. We do not need any type of inappropriate content. Posting any inappropriate content may result in an infraction on forums. The exception to this rule is the posting of pornographic content, whereby you will be permanently banned and never welcomed back.


Thread Hijacking
Thread Hijacking primarily applies to the market section of the forums. It is the act of posting on a sale thread (that is not yours) and selling items at a cheaper price or buying items at a higher price. This is strictly forbidden and can result in a warning.


@ Player Topics
Threads directed to players are allowed as long as it remains in a positive environment. If the thread is directed to negatively effect a player, harm the security of the user, or it is intended to flame bait others, the thread will be closed and the creator of the topic may receive a warning point. If your content is directed towards a staff member or a player to clarify a rule/statement/question, we expect them to use the private messaging system instead. Criticism and comments directed towards a staff member and Asteria gaming can be posted in Overall Feedback in a constructive manner.

 
 

Gravedigging
Posting on a thread that is at least 2 weeks old (14 days) or more without a post is seen as spamming and can result in a warning point.

Flaming other users will not be tolerated and will result in a 24-48 hour ban from shoutbox - depending on the severity.
