General Community Rules
DarksideRP is committed to providing a safe environment for players to explore their creativity through online gaming and roleplay. Members are expected to be respectful of each other at all times. Hate speech, and other abusive or discriminatory language will not be tolerated. Treat everyone with respect, and do your part to keep DarksideRP positive and fun.
We do not tolerate bullying, discrimination or harassment of any kind within our community. Players are expected to never communicate or behave in any way that is predatory, threatening, intimidating, lewd, demeaning, derogatory, or any other way meant to cause discomfort or disrupt another member’s experience. Insults and verbal attacks outside of “in-character roleplay” is strictly prohibited.
Griefing or “trolling” is any activity that is solely designed to target and deliberately interfere with, restrict, or ruin, the gaming experience of another player. Griefing typically goes hand in hand with incidents of harassment or bullying and it’s a very broad term that can cover many scenarios.
Cheating, hacking, the use of third-party programs or scripts, exploiting game bugs, and engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is prohibited while on any DarksideRP servers. If you are suspected of hacking or exploiting the game, your access may be temporarily revoked during the investigation. If you find a glitch or in-game exploit please submit a ticket.
We have a zero tolerance policy for hate speech and discrimination. Hate speech is defined as prejudice, hateful content, slurs, or statements that promote discrimination, hatred, violence or intolerance toward others due to factors such as:
- Race, Ethnicity or Color
- Nation or National Origin
- Gender Identity
- Sexual Orientation
- Religious Beliefs
- Physical or Mental Disabilities
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.
6. Content Restrictions
All content shared within DarksideRP services must abide by Twitch Terms of Service and Twitch Community Guidelines.
While DarksideRP welcomes players from all countries, we are a North American server, and public communications must be in North American English. Remember, English does not need to be your main language, but you must be fluent enough to understand others and be understood in fast paced interactions that occur, both, in written format and VOIP communication. If your fluency is too low, your server access may be removed.
All public communications must be in North American English.

- Darkside Server events may be posted to the event calendar.

Spamming is not permitted. This includes excessively communicating nonsense, the same phrase, or similar phrases in a short amount of time as well as creating threads for the sole purpose of causing agitation or disruption within the forums. In addition to this, please refrain from bumping threads or creating non-constructive posts which contain no thoughtful meaning (i.e -1 or +1 without further information or context).

6. Rule Intent & Admin Discretion
The rules are not exhaustive but represent a clear image of our standards and expectations for the Darkside community. Players are expected to understand the “spirit” of the rule at all times and not abuse syntax, ambiguity or apply false interpretation in order to get around this intent. Learn more about ruleplaying here.
Administration has ultimate discretion over what they consider a breach of the server rules, unacceptable action, or general behavior that creates a negative playing experience, and/or is detrimental to the roleplaying environment we aim to create on Darkside.
Never directly message DarksideRP Staff (Owners, Devs, Admins, or Moderators) with issues or questions unless there is an active server emergency taking place. Staff are under no obligation to respond to any direct or private message related to DarksideRP. If you have a question, concern or need assistance, please submit a ticket and a staff member will contact you privately if needed.
