Image Server Rules of Pure Roleplay [font=Arial]Warning: Failure to abide by these rules could lead to your account(s) being banned. The Management Team reserve the right to change or alter these rules at any time with or without notice. It is your responsibility upon joining the server to revise and learn these rules. Staff members have their own set of private guidelines to ensure the punishment process is adhered to properly. If the punishment says "180 minutes in admin jail maximum" for Metagaming, but an administrator feels the situation was not severe enough to warrant this, then they may give you any time less than 180 minutes. It is up to the staff member punishing you. The only time a member of staff will break the maximum punishment length is if the Management team give the staff member permission, or if the member of staff is on the Management team.[/font]
Rule 1 - Hacking Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Hacking is not allowed on our server or our forums. Hacking can be defined as using any type of program to obtain an unfair advantage on our SA:MP server. In addition to this, if you are using any mods such as CLEO or third-party software, you should consult an Administrator regarding what is and what isn't allowed to be used.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: Permanent Ban.[/font]
Rule 2 - Metagaming Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Metagaming is taking information you have obtained OOC (Out of Character) and using it in an IC (In Character) manner, whether this be a name or where-abouts of a suspect if you are a member of in game law enforcement, metagaming is not tolerated. If you have any doubt regarding an action that could be considered as metagaming, do not hesitate to contact an Administrator beforehand to check that what you are doing is allowed.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 120 minutes in admin jail maximum.[/font]
Rule 3 - Powergaming Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Powergaming is the act of forcing an action upon somebody without letting them roleplay. Their character is their character and your character is your character. Regardless of how much you wish and hope that the person you're fighting (for example) accepts that punch to the jaw, you must let them play as their own character; it is up to them to decide the outcome of the action you have done on their character.  Another act of powergaming would be RPing using weapons, taking pictures, doing drugs etc. without actually doing them in the script.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 120 minutes in admin jail maximum.[/font]
Rule 4 - Deathmatching/DM Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Deathmatching is the act of randomly killing or attacking another player without proper reason. You are not allowed to attack another character/player without a justifiable and understandable reason for doing so; starting a fist fight over who took whose drink (for example) is not a good enough reason to start shooting someone.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 120 minutes in admin jail maximum - 30 day ban maximum.[/font]
Rule 5 - Carjacking Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Carjacking is the act of randomly stealing a car that is occupied by a player or player(s). For example, if somebody is parked up on the street, you are not allowed to run up to them and throw them out of their car by pressing ENTER or F. You must roleplay the carjack properly and fully without any acts of powergaming in between.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 60 minutes in admin jail maximum.[/font]
Rule 6 - Ban Evading Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Ban Evading is an act that occurs when a player has been banned and they attempt to connect to the game server with a different IP address or computer. Ban Evaders usually know full well that they are ban evading and will always be caught. If you are banned, you are allowed to appeal your ban: do not attempt to connect with another IP address or name. You may also be punished if you are aware that a person is ban evading; if you are, you must report it immediately.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: Permanent Ban.[/font]
Rule 7 - Lying to an Administrator Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Lying is one thing, but when you lie to a member of staff here at P-RP, we consider this as an act of staff disrespect. The Management Team do not tolerate people who are abusive or lie to staff members: they are here to help, treat them with respect.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 7 day ban maximum. [/font]
Rule 8 - Staff Disrespect Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]This ties in with Rule 7. Staff members here at P-RP are here to help you, please be patient at all times with staff members (and players in general) swearing at them and acting abusive will just make Administrators angry rather than feeling compassion to help you. Staff members are people to, so treat them like people.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 7 day ban maximum.[/font]
Rule 9 - Revenge Killing/RK Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]If your character is killed for any reason, you may not kill the same person who killed you unless you were revived in an IC manner and taken out of death mode.

[font=Arial]Punishment: 120 minutes in admin jail maximum.[/font]
Rule 10 - Scamming out of character Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Tricking/lying to or scamming another player out of character is not tolerated in any circumstance. All scams and lies must be kept in character at all times.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 3 day ban maximum.[/font]
Rule 11 - Out of Character insults Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]All insults and acts that can be considered as derogatory must be kept in character at all times. Do not swear at players on the forums, in personal message or any form of communication related to P-RP. Other insults such as racism, sexism and clearly offending people based on their background/religion will not be tolerated in the slightest manner. Treat all players and staff with respect just as you would like to be treated.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 14 day ban maximum. [/font]
Rule 12 - Robbing Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Robbing can be performed in game. However, you must never rob a player who is level 1 and the maximum amount you can rob must never exceed $50,000 from a player and you must never kill/PK/CK a player after you have robbed them.

Rule 13 - Scamming Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]You must keep all scamming in game. You may not scam anyone under level 3 (level 3 and under) and you can not scam any more than $80,000. Like robbing, you can not kill/PK/CK a player after you have scammed them. If your scam involves more than the maximum scamming amount and the person you are scamming gives you more, you must hand the remainder of the money back to them so that the total scam does not exceed any more than $80,000.[/font]

Only an Administrator may pause/stop a roleplay situation.

Rule 25 - Sexual Behavior Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Any sexual harassment or exploitation will not be tolerated on P-RP, period.

[font=Arial]Punishment: 6 months - permanent ban maximum.[/font]
Rule 26 - Slanderous Behavior Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]An example of slander would be Player A saying to Player B, "Player C is a retard. Did you know he crashed his car into a playground and nearly went to prison in real life?" - this is unacceptable on any level. Players come to the community to unwind, relax and play the game. We do not expect you to bring any instance or situations of their real life into the game unless it is detrimental or harmful to the game or other members of the community. Slanderous behavior includes bringing peoples real lives into the community, this will be dealt with swiftly and harshly to protect players and also ensure a fun, safe gaming environment as best we can.[/font]
[font=Arial]Punishment: 6 months - permanent ban maximum.[/font]
Rule 27 - Player/Character Killing Wrote: wrote: [font=Arial]Under normal circumstances, you can not force a character or player kill on another player. (For example, you can not use a /me to shoot somebody in the head and instantly kill them). The script death time varies based off of where you shot the player and with what weapon. If a player does die, it is to be treated as a "Player Kill". The player is to forget all interactions of the events leading up to their death. You must wait at least 30 minutes before returning to the scene of your death. General+ Administrators can force a Character Kill if they feel that it is necessary, that being from a deportation, or a serious crime, such as death from terrorism. 
Factions MAY force character kill (Faction Kill) on the following conditions:They are an illegal faction, where CK is necessary, their intention is clearly listed on their main faction thread, and they have permission from a General+ Administrator. The faction agrees to pay the price of the namechange.[/font]

[font=Arial]Punishment: 240 Minutes Admin Jail - 7 day ban.[/font]
