Rules – General

General Rules

1. All members must abide by DarksideRP’s Terms of Service and Code of Conduct.

2. General Conduct: Be respectful of your fellow players. Insults or verbal attacks outside of role-play (RP) and other forms of harassment are strictly prohibited. Racism, homophobia, trans-phobia, sexism, hate speech, and other abusive or discriminatory language will also not be tolerated. Additionally, any activity with the intention to grief or bully a player during their time on DarksideRP can result in a permanent ban from the community.

3. Roleplay that violates the Twitch Terms of Service (ToS) or Twitch Community Guidelines and chat that violates Discord TOS is strictly prohibited.

4. Language Requirement: You must primarily speak English while on DarksideRP servers. If you cannot communicate clearly in English, you will not be able to roleplay on the server.

5. Age Requirement: DarksideRP uses ESRB ratings for our servers. You must be 16 years or older to play Ark, Atlas, and Dark and Light. You must be 18 years or older to play Conan or GTA.

6. Discord: You are required to be a member of our discord, and your name must match this format: Twitch Name (Character Name).

7. Firestarting: Speaking poorly of roleplayers and staff, purposefully antagonizing other members to elicit response, or engaging in heated arguments in public forums will not be tolerated. If you have an issue with another member, submit a report or handle it privately rather than incite additional toxicity. As a member of the community, you are representing DarksideRP even when out of character, and this sort of behavior will not be tolerated in public spaces.

          d. Suicide: Roleplay may not contain detailed descriptions of suicide or acts of self harm.
          e. Torture: Acts of torture are allowed only with the express OOC permission of all parties involved.

9. Use of glitches, exploits, or hacks will result in an instant ban from the server. If you find a glitch or in-game exploit please notify an admin.

10. Tribe/Company Discords: If you have discord created specifically for the organization for the roleplay of your group, you must have at least one admin present in the discord taht does not belong to that company and they must be given access to all channels for the sake of monitoring communications. DarksideRP Moderators do not count as admins.

11. DarksideRP Admins have ultimate discretion over what they do and do not consider a breach of the server rules. Respect all admin decisions. Additionally, if you are banned from one Darkside server, you are banned from all Darkside servers.
