Fair Chat Guidelines
  1. Read the role play rules as the admins announce them in the admin chat.
  2. Do not spam the chat with similar or unnecessary messages.
  3. English only. Keep other languages to a minimum, or via external chat programs.
  4. Always try to use proper capitalization, spelling and sentence structures.
  5. Regiments are allowed to recruit once per 3rd round.
  6. Complain about decisions on the forums, not in the chat.
Fair Play Guidelines
  1. Always follow the rules for the current role play on the server.
  2. No ramboing. You should always follow a regiment unless you're an artillerist.
  3. Sappers and naval troops need to follow officers or artillerists.
  4. No surrender-killing. You should always wait for admin/officers command before killing a prisoner.
    You may only kill prisoners if they still have weapons on them.
  5. No delaying. You should be playing to win, not to run around like a fool.
  6. No BP/TNT spam. You should never waste buildpoints or spam explosives.
  7. No teamhitting. Never stab, shoot or throw grenades at friendly soldiers.
  8. No hacking, cheating or modding. Never use files that modifies the game online.
  9. No trolling. Never block artillery or take control of boats without permission.
  10. No intentional impersonation of an admin, nor unauthorized usage of their tags.
Admin Chat Guidelines
  1. No deviating from or circumventing the Player Rules for Chatting.
    Thus admins must still follow the Player Rules for Chatting.
  2. No leading regiments via the announcements unless the specific RP requires it.
  3. No recruiting for regiments via the announcements.
  4. No participating in everyday conversation with the players via the announcements.
  5. No random or irrelevant sentences via the announcements.
  6. No spamming via the announcements. ~1 message per minute.
  7. Write using proper capitalization, spelling and sentence structure.
  8. Only warnings, RP instructions and punishments should be told via the announcements.
Admin Play Guidelines
  1. No deviating from or circumventing the Player Rules for Playing.
    Thus admins must still follow the Player Rules for Playing.
  2. Admins should be in our Teamspeak or Discord while they are admining.
  3. Admins may not spawn tools such as admin weapons or admin horses.
  4. Admins may teleport stuck players if it's possible, the player will get slain if not.
  5. Post in the admin group on Steam when the server requires another admin.
  6. Admins should use their tag while on duty. eg, ServerAbbreviation_Rank_Username.
  7. Admins should announce their name change, unless temporary in the admin steam group.
Discord Guidelines
  1. Use common sense when posting. Don't spam whether it be text, images, links or videos. Keep your usernames clean and tidy.
  2. Economy/music commands belong in #commands. Remain on-topic in each channel and keep the topics relevant to our community.
  3. #affiliates may post their events in #announcements without ping. Regiments may advertise in #deleted-channel could those interested join tonight's event.
  4. We encourage people to use English unless you want to be muted. Don't DM unwanted messages to our members.
  5. Player/admin complaints, admin applications and suggestions should be made on the forums to allow for a persistent discussion.
  6. Don't post explicit content; racist remarks, people getting hurt, people exhibiting an aggressive behavior or pornography.
  7. Don't post or otherwise use someone's personal information, photos or any other content which could be considered private.
  8. Don't violate discord guidelines (https://discord.com/guidelines) or our terms of service (https://nwrp.eu/terms).
  9. Don't flame. Don't use language or imagery intended to make it unpleasant to be an active part of our community. Don't say things to deliberately hurt others.
  10. Don't raid us/others. Don't leave a bad impression here or anywhere else. Don't misrepresent our community or impersonate someone.
  11. Don't bait. Use DMs or a mediator to solve quarrel. Serious discussions should be built upon information from peer-reviewed scientific papers and trusted news sources to not feed into prejudice, have malicious intent or spread misinformation. Community discussions should contain and continuously bring constructive criticism along with new ideas and suggestions. Use the correct channels to allow for a persistent discussion and not block dynamic discussions.
If a rule isn't written down, it's most certainly not forbidden either.
Eg, acting tough in chat is not forbidden, nor is it forbidden to be named Stalin in-game.
However, it is forbidden to harass others, spam in chat or to impersonate an admin in-game.
The recruiting rule gives every regiment or clan permission to make one informative recruitment message per 3rd round, also containing a link to a steam profile, website or forum thread. This isn't done to harm or discriminate against regiments or clans, but to keep the chat open for conversations, orders and memes instead of it being filled with advertisements.

Player Consequences
Admins use common sense when determining punishment, but they also use certain guidelines.
They look at previous behavior and if there was a valid reason to bend a rule.
Breaking a rule once and regularly breaking them everyday may lead to different punishments.

Admin Consequences
Admins can make mistakes, but certain measures may be taken if it appears that they have deliberately broken the rules. Admins are the representatives of the community and should therefore be extra aware of the rules, show extra patience, restraint and respect. Common mistakes are often forgiven. Eg, if an admin accidentally permanently ban a player and immediately report it. However, if an admin has deliberately broken the rules, acts out as a threat against the existing hierarchy or if a valid complaint has been filed, then the admin can expect three possibilities; removal from the team, a warning or a demotion.
