Please take time to read the information on this page to ensure you have the best experience on our community servers. We must have strict rules, this allows us to maintain a high standard of professionalism on our servers.
We are a very friendly community, as we consider ourselves to be an adult community we expect all members to respect other members and the staff team. If you are unsure about a rule, speak to a administrator to prevent getting in trouble. Please be aware these are the official rules, if you are told different please disregard it unless you’ve been told by a member of the staff team otherwise.
