The following is a list of rules for the Prison server and punishments for breaking them. Many of the punishment lengths are purposefully vague so precedent and staff discretion can be more easily used, allowing staff members to adapt punishments as time goes by, rather than being bound by arbitrary rules created with limited knowledge of the reality they intend to dictate. Words such as “short” and “long” in relation to punishment duration are extremely relative; for example, a “short” punishment for breaking one rule may be a 5 minute mute, while a “short” punishment for a different rule may be a month-long tempban. The punishments follow the following formula: Offense committed: punishment for first offense -> second offense -> … -> nth offense If you see a “<->”, this means the punishments on either side of that symbol may be used for the same number offense (i.e. first offense, second offense, etc.) depending on the severity of that offense. 1. Including inappropriate words/phrases in Faction names. - Deletion of your Faction without warning or compensation. 2. Claiming your own bounty/using alt accounts to claim your own bounty. - Removal of bounty money from your balance <-> short tempban 3. Carrying Contraband items in the Prison building. - Removal of the item from your inventory <-> short jail time <-> hit with a Guard's Baton. 4. Spamming the same Auction items multiple times/too high, abusive, or obviously-a-scam bid increment prices. - Warning -> kick -> short tempban -> removal of permission to issue command “/auction start” and its variants 5. Griefing, raiding, stealing, and scamming are allowed at any time. 6. PvP is allowed anywhere on the server, where it is enabled. *All rules are subject to change at any time.* NOTE 1: Staff are the law of the server. If they tell you something is against the rules, stating "that wasn't listed in the rules" or similar is not a valid reason to justify your actions. NOTE 2: Shadow Kingdom staff members are not responsible for any players unaware of changes to this list of server rules, and therefore using that as your alibi to disprove a valid punishment is not permitted. Players and staff members are expected to check the official rules regularly for changes.
