    Rules and Regulations

    In-Game Rules

    Please find below a list of the rules and regulations that are in place at ReaperScape, please also read the notes section at the bottom of the post as they will constantly be updated.

    1. Flaming, Disrespect, Harassment, and Inappropriate Content

    ReaperScape welcomes all types of members to join our community. Therefore, members will be respectful to one another no matter who they are or what they believe in. Antagonizing members outside of playful banter will not be tolerated. If you have seen someone breaking this rule or you feel like someone is antagonizing you, please report them on the forums to a staff member showing adequate proof of the crime.

    Examples:

    a. The use of inappropriate, slanderous and/or disrespectful language towards another’s race, belief system, ethics, or sexual orientation is not tolerated whatsoever. To avoid minor antagonizing, we ask you to use the ignore system InGame.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = Jailing and/or any mute lasting up to 24 hours.

    Second Offense = 48-hour mute.

    Third Offense = Permanent mute.

    2. Advertising

    We operate a zero tolerance policy on advertising, if seen fit by the member of staff, the player breaking this rule will be instantly banned, permanently.

    Examples:

    a. Widespread, ordinary links (YouTube, RuneLocus, Rune-Server, etc.) are acceptable and will usually be allowed unless someone decides to take advantage of this privilege.

    b. Discussing other active servers InGame or on the forums is absolutely not allowed. Anyone caught advertising another active RSPS will be immediately muted and/or banned. If you believe your situation allows an exception, please ask an administrator first or else you will face the same punishment as the common advertiser.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = Jailing and/or a mute of 24 hours or more, depending on the severity.

    Second Offense = Permanent IP-ban.

    3. Spamming

    Everyone plays this server to have a good time and no one has a good time when someone is spamming. Even if the spam is to be taken as a joke, a player has the right to report you and you can be punished for this.

    Examples:

    a. If a member happens to be a donator, flooding yell with your messages is not allowed.

    b. An auto-typer is allowed in the public chat, but it has to be set to 15 second intervals between each message.

    c. Flooding the chatbox with messages even if they are in 15 seconds or longer intervals. If no one else is chatting to break up your text, players might report you for spamming and there is a chance you will be punished for it.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = Jailing and/or any mute lasting up to 24 hours.

    Second Offense = 48-hour mute.

    Third Offense = Permanent mute.

    4. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats

    Misleading links are not allowed. Although your excuse may be that you were trying to prank your friends, people have the right to be lead to the page that was rightfully advertised by your link and you can be punished for your “prank”. Almost anytime this rule is broken, it will result in your account being permanently banned from ReaperScape.

    5. Punishment Evasion

    Punishments are given for a reason. If you feel that you were unfairly punished, we urge you to appeal your punishment on the forums. Do not create/log-on to another account in order to continue talking or to beg for your account to be unmuted/banned.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = 24-hour ban.

    Second Offense = One Week IP-ban.

    Third Offense = Permanent IP-ban.

    6. Real World Trading

    The only time any kind of real world trading is allowed is if it is approved on this thread: Donation Options Thread Even if the trade does not happen, any attempt at real world trading will be follow the same punishments. If items are found that have been acquired via real world trading, they will be wiped from the account.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = 24- hour ban.

    Second Offense = Permanent IP-ban.

    7. Account Sharing

    Account sharing is allowed on ReaperScape, but do it at your own risk. If your account is stolen, hacked, or wiped, it is not a staff member’s fault and the staff team will do nothing to help you. We highly recommend for you to keep your password safe and not share it with anyone.

    8. Third Party Software

    Due to an increased amount of abuse of third party software’s, please note that none are allowed.

    This includes the use of auto-clicking and ghost mousing, and any other types of software that will give players an unfair advantage over others.

    No warnings will now be given, any profits made from using the third party software will be taken from the player and removed from the game.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = 24-hour ban.

    Second Offense = One week ban.

    Third Offense = Permanent ban.

    9. Multi-Logging

    Multi-Logging is when one person logs into multiple accounts at one time. This is permitted, however both accounts must abide with our other rules and regulations including, but not limited to:

    Section 8, Third Party Software- When Multi- Logging, the user will abide by our Third Party Software rules as neither account is permitted of using such software whether it is an auto clicker or ghost mouse. Violators of this rule will be subject to the disciplinary action stated in Section 8.
    Section 11, Bug Abuse- The user will shall not be abusing bugs or glitches to gain any form of advantage over other users. Violators of this rule will be subject to the disciplinary action stated in Section 11.
    Section 15, VPN Usage: As our client limits only 2 connections per IP address, this will be the maximum accounts in which a user can have operating at one point in time. Multi- Logging will not be tolerated if a VPN is used to gain additional operational accounts. Violators of this rule will be subject to the disciplinary action stated in Section 15.
    Section 18, AFKing: The user will abide with the rules for AFKing as stated in section 18. The user is not permitted take advantage of purely AFK activities which provide a benefit to the account when operating multiple accounts. Violators of this rule will be subject to the disciplinary action stated in Section 18.
    Should the violation not fit under the aforementioned sections, staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = 24-hour ban on both accounts.

    Second Offense = One week ban on both accounts.

    Third Offense = Permanent ban on both accounts.

    10. Encouraging Others to Break Rules

    Although you yourself may not be breaking the rule, encouraging other people to break a rule can result in a punishment for you as well.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = A warning or any mute/jailing lasting up to 24 hours.

    Second Offense = One week mute.

    Third Offense = Permanent mute and/or ban.

    11. Bug Abuse

    Any bugs or glitches found within ReaperScape should be immediately reported to a staff member either on the forums or through the report button InGame. Our server is and will always be working toward perfection, but there will be bugs/glitches.

    If a player is found abusing these bugs/glitches, then they will be punished.
    Safe-spotting monsters/bosses that are not meant to be safe-spotted counts as a bug and you will be punished the same as if you were abusing any other bug.

    In short, if you are found safe-spotting a boss, or fighting it in any way that you are unable to do it on rs that provides you with an advantage you shouldn’t have, the following will be carried out.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = At least a 24-hour ban and/or Jailing, depending on the severity.

    Second Offense = One week ban.

    Third Offense = Permanent ban.

    12. Refunds (Scams, Disconnects, etc.)

    Examples:

    a. If you lost items due to a disconnection, make a thread about it showing adequate proof of your losses. Most of the time, disconnections will not be refunded.

    b. Donations will not be refunded at any time.

    c. If the server has been reset or rolled back, then a player can request for their items back by showing adequate proof of their losses on the forums.

    d. Scammed members will only be refunded if the following evidence is provided:

    – Video Evidence of the scam.

    – The person who scammed you admits to the scam.

    Note – Photo reports will NOT be accepted as proof of a scam.

    e. Hacking refunds will only be given if adequate proof of the hack is provided on a thread on the forums.

    f. Glitch refunds will only be refunded if adequate proof of the glitch causing you to lose your items is provided on a thread on the forums. You also have to prove that you owned the items before the time of the glitch. False reports will result in a deny of a refund and a punishment.

    g. If a player charges back a donation made to ReaperScape, the player will be banned.

    13. Player versus Player (PvP)

    Examples:

    a. PvP Point Farming will result in an automatic ban. A second offense will be a permanent ban.

    b. Luring is allowed as long as it is not done over yell. Luring a staff member by asking them for help will result in an instant 24-hour ban and any items stolen will be retrieved and returned.

    14. Invading Other Communities

    Invading other community will result in a permanent ban from ReaperScape. We understand how difficult the process of creating and growing an RSPS is and we respect every server out there. Therefore, we do not approve of any kind of advertising on any server. If we receive word from another server of one of our players advertising, we will find that player and ban them.

    15. VPN Voting

    VPN voting is when someone changes their IP Address in order to continuously vote on the voting pages in order to obtain the voting rewards. This is not allowed for two reasons: one, it can result in our server being banned from voting page and two, it gives the player an unfair advantage of voting rewards which will saturate the market with voting items.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = Warning.

    Second Offense = 24-hour ban.

    Third Offense = Permanent ban.

    16. Staff Impersonation

    Impersonating a staff member to take advantage of another player will result in a permanent ban. If you see anyone impersonating a staff member, report them immediately.

    17. DDoS Threats or DDoS’ing

    DDoS’ing extremely simplified is when a player disconnects you from your internet. If someone is threatening to DDoS you, report them immediately. If you are being DDoS’ed, create a report thread with proof of the DDoS’ing. If caught DDoS’ing, you will be permanently IP-banned from our server.

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = 24-hour mute.

    Second Offense = 48-hour ban.

    Third Offense = Permanent ban.

    18. AFK Rules

    Being AFK in ReaperScape is allowed if you are not carrying out an activity. If you are carrying out an activity, for example; training, alching, attacking NPCs or anything else, the following will be implemented

    Staff members will determine if the situation is punishable and will abide by these punishments:

    First Offense = 12-24 Hour Jail

    Second Offense = 24 Hour Ban

    Third Offense = One week-Pemanent Ban

    Forum Rules

    Forum punishments go by a warning system. Warnings can be given by staff members for members breaking any of the rules. Staff members will give warnings points based off of the severity of each situation.

    5 Warning Points = Restrict from Posting for 24 hours.

    10 Warning Points = Restrict from Posting for 72 hours and ban for 24 hours.

    15 Warnings Points = Restrict from Posting indefinitely and ban for 72 hours.

    20 Warning Points = Indefinite ban.

    1. Inappropriate Language and Content

    Any content posted onto the forums that is deemed inappropriate can result in warning points added to your account or temporary bans depending on the severity. Keep the forums clean.

    Examples:

    a. Flaming, obsessive cursing, threats, harassing, or obnoxious trolling.

    b. Pornographic material.

    c. Content promoting rule and/or law breaking.

    2. Advertising

    Advertising on the Forum without the appropriate permissions of staff members will result in you being removed from the forum.

    Examples:

    a. Widespread, ordinary links (YouTube, RuneLocus, Rune-Server, etc.) are acceptable and will usually be allowed unless someone decides to take advantage of this privilege.

    b. Discussing other active servers InGame or on the forums is absolutely not allowed. Anyone caught advertising another active RSPS will be immediately restrained from posting or banned. If you believe your situation allows an exception, please ask an administrator first or else you will face the same punishment as the common advertiser.

    3. Spamming

    Examples:

    a. Posts that consist of one word are considered spam and will be deleted off of the thread and the poster will receive a warning point. This rule does not apply in the Off-Topic section.

    b. Please take a second to consider where you are posting a thread before you do. Posting a thread in the wrong section will not earn you any warning points, but your thread will probably be moved.

    c. Grave digging is when someone posts on an inactive thread. There can be exceptions to this if the player is posting useful information, but for the most part, do not post on any thread that is over a month old.

    4. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threats

    Misleading links are not allowed. Although your excuse may be that you were trying to prank your friends, people have the right to be lead to the page that was rightfully advertised by your link and you can be punished for your “prank”. Almost anytime this rule is broken, it will result in your account being permanently banned from FuryPS. Hacking an account will result in a permanent IP-ban. Threatening another player will result in warning points or an automatic ban depending on the severity.

    5. Backseat Moderation

    Backseat moderation is when a regular player acts like a moderator and tries to handle situations a staff member is needed for. This often just causes even more problems and can even result in warning points being given to the backseat moderator who is probably just trying to help. If you feel like you have the answer to a situation, report the thread/post and a staff member will read your description.

    6. Encouraging Others to Break Rules

    Although you yourself may not be breaking the rule, encouraging other people to break a rule can result in a punishment for you as well. Most of the time, this is when veteran players will try and take advantage of newer players and this just leads to a toxic community. Treat your fellow players with respect.

    7. Influencing Polls

    Asking people to vote for a certain option on a poll is strictly prohibited; this will result in your vote not counting and you will receive warning points.

    8. Reputation Boosting

    The reputation system is meant for players showing other players how much they appreciate their content. If a player bribes, threatens, or even just asks players to boost their reputation count, they will be punished by having their reputation count reset as well as receive warning points.

    9. Discord

    The Discord is implemented for the use of general purposes without having to post on the forums. Although it is a great convenience, it is a privilege and can be taken away if abused.

    Examples:

    a. Flaming another member on Discord will result in a 24-hour mute from Discord and warning points added to your account.

    b. Flooding/Spamming the Discord will also result in a 24-hour mute from Discord and warning points added to your account.

    c. Staff Impersonation will result in a ban from the forums.

    d. Advertising will result in a permanent ban from the forums.

    The above rules apply to the discord server too, similar consequences will be applied there if anyone is found to be abusing it.

    NOTE

    If any player is found to be breaking any of the rules listed in this thread, the staff members of ReaperScape do have the power escalate any of the punishments if seen fit.

    It is at the discretion of the staff to punish where seen fit.

    If anyone requires any clarity on the rules of ReaperScape, feel free to contact any of the staff members, the list can be found HERE

    Remember to keep an eye on the rules thread, things in here are subject to change, but you will be notified about it in game. and via discord.
