    The following are NOT allowed.

    1. Spamming:
      • Spamming the chat box with meaningless messages, could often disrupt others from being able to read legitimate messages on the chat box. So please refrain from spamming the chat box for no real reason.

    2. Auto typing:
      • Use of programs to auto type are allowed, as long as its an interval of 7 seconds. The spamming rule is still applied here; So please make sure your automated text(s) has meaning in it.

    3. Flaming:
      • We all want to play a game and enjoy without someone flaming us. So please do not flame other players. If someone is annoying you, then please add them to your ignore list. In case you do get flamed, then report it immediately, instead of flaming back. However, your report will be invalid if you were the one instigating the other to flame you. That would make you broke the rule #8 and will bring punishment to yourself.

    4. Advertising:
      • PlayWorld is a game for players to play. Its not a site to send in your links for profit. Use of links to advertise things outside PlayWorld, is NOT allowed.

    5. Phishing:
      • Misleading players to gain their personal information, is NOT allowed and will not be tolerated. Never visit unknown links given by players, for whatever reason they may tell you. If you find someone spreading a suspicious link, then report it immediately.

    6. Bug abuse:
      • Misuse of a bug in game will not end well for you. Sure you get the fun in abusing the bug, but just know it will get patched and at the end you get banned. Its always better to report the bugs to the team, rather then abusing it. Reporting crucial bugs will always get you rewarded for doing so and misusing a bug will just bring negative results on you; as the bug will get patched.

    7. Flaming the server:
      • Everyone has their opinions on different games. If you do not like our game, then please just kindly leave. Dedicating your hate to us is not needed. Instead of saying how bad it is, you can just send in a suggestion to change whatever you found not appealing.

    8. Encouraging others to break the rules:
      • Please refrain from encouraging other players in breaking any of the rules. We will take actions against the ones encouraging a rule break and the ones who have broken the rules.

    9. Scamming:
      • The scamming rule is not applied for lures. Its only for things such as gambling. Its really no point in scamming a player, while when you get reported and lose more then you scammed. So please refrain from scamming and have it played legitimately!

    10. Bots/Macros:
      • Use of bots/macros are allowed, as long as its not being used for PvP purpose.

    11. Threats:
      • Giving others real life threats or things such as DDoS attacks, is NOT allowed. Please do not joke around with this matter; we will take direct actions when spotted.

    12. Staff Impersonating:
      • Pretending to be a staff member will not at all be tolerated. Do not joke around in this matter.

    Below are the additional rules, specifically for the forums.

    13. Grave digging:
    • If a thread died out, then please do not bring it back up. Instead, go ahead and start a fresh one. This rule is an exception for threads in the Site/Game Improvements, Guides and the Spam board. Grave digging is considered when a thread died out for several months and you bumped it back up by posting.
    14. Pornography:
    • Our forums is for every age group. So please be respectful and do not post nudity on the forums.
    15. Off-topic:
    • Its okay to go off-topic for couple of posts; but please do not over board it. If you want to go off-topic, then make a new thread related to your topic and continue it from there. If you constantly post off-topics on different threads/categories, you will be considered as a spammer and actions will be taken against you.
    16. Post in the correct category:
    • For beginners it may take time to know which thread belongs to the correct category and that's totally fine! but please refrain from continuously posting in the wrong section. It wouldn't be that hard to narrow down which category your topic fits in.
    17. Harassment:
    • Harassing other users on the Forum is not allowed. This means offensively abusing other members of the board, causing to potentially disturbing the board users. This rule only protects those board users, that are NOT trolls/flamers themselves.
    18. Shoutbox disciplines
    • The forums shoutbox does not encourage the use of profound abusive language, spam or any sort of unwanted disrupted behaviour over the shoutbox. You will get appropriate enforcement's taken against you on the board for causing disruption to the shoutbox.
    If a rule is repeatedly broken, then the punishment will be extended and higher strict measures will be taken.
