Important update to Genesis rules

Post by Cherek » 27 Aug 2020 01:34

Code: Select all

Hello,

Me and Mirandus have been discussing a couple of rule changes / additions
lately, and we've now decided to implement them.

Please see <help rules> to familiarize yourself with the changes. Not
knowing about a rule is not an excuse if you happen to break it, and it's
your responsibility as a player to know the rules.

These are the additions/changes:

1. From now on, players who purposely attempt to harm the game server
by spamming commands or exploiting game design flaws are not welcome
in Genesis. If you purposely try to crash the game, cause severe LAG,
or anything else harmful, you will most likely find your character(s)
deleted very quickly.

2. Exploiting obvious bugs to your own benefit will from now now on also
be a punishable violation. Previously, the rules only mentioned that you
may get any advantages removed, but we feel this is no longer enough.

Punishments will vary depending on the severity of the exploit, and range
from removal of benefits to deletion. If you are unsure if something is a
bug or not, just <mail aop> and ask, but most people who exploit a bug
tend to know what they are doing... so, stop it!

3. Genesis will always be free to play, and you should never be able to buy
benefits in the game using real-life currency. Therefore, from now on we
will not allow players to trade ANYTHING related to the game in exchange
for any form of real-life currency, goods, or favor.

Note that these rules will apply from today. We will not punish players
retroactively.

No rule about posting slander with fake chars?
Lesser guilds deserve their suffering, you feel unjustly nerfed and want to be restored to your rightful glory... huh. I guess you're Genesis Hitler then. It feels so sweet to say this.. Fuck you, Hitler.

Well, that is a very specific thing, and I don't think it's a good idea to write our rules like a legal document to cover every possible scenario. We need to try to "group" the rules into different sections, and write it in a more general way to cover as much as possible with as few words as possible. If the rules are too long people likely wont even bother reading them.

I think what you describe is already is already covered in the rules, and it could be a violation of the character separation rules and and/or harassment/griefing rules, but that has to be judged case by case I think.

Now, you and I have already discussed this in private and I thought it was settled by now? If not, you know where to find me.

Taran: Of course I accept it, but like Mim said, you can't win since I never specified _which_ xmas. That's the "before xmas" Genesis joke, and why we always say it.

And Cherek will collect.

But again Cherek, when will you collect? He can just claim it's still not settled with same reasoning.
