This page is intended for the use of R2D:A Discord Moderators+, or users who are wanting to read the rules.
This page will be used as a guide when a user on the Discord has appeared to have broken the rules. Note, however, some rules may not be included within this list. Chat Moderators+ will, based upon the incident, decide on the block time. The amount of time one is blocked depend on how severe their actions were. In the case of repeated offences by a user, for example, being banned for swearing several separate times, the ban will be longer than what is stated on the broken rule.
A ban can be revoked by a Chat Head Moderator & Above if this requirement is not met.
#mod-call and #bug-report have a different set of rules. Read the pinned messages before posting.
If a given reason does not appear here, an appeal can be proposed; but can also be listed if needed.
Green = Low Tier Offense Rating Yellow = Mid Tier Offense Rating Red = High Tier Offense Rating Black = Max Tier Offense Rating (Permanent Block)
If a user has not broken any further green/yellow rules after 1 week within their initial warning, Moderators are required to give another warning if that user breaks another rule. There are exceptions.
If you're also asking about in-appropriate things in chat, for example mentioning an inappropriate word to ask Chat-Moderators, please ask it in their DMs. Asking in general will result in punishment.
If a user has lost trusted 2 times in total, they are no longer eligable to get trusted. (Removal of trusted is counted from 04/07/2018)
If a user attacks a staff member through DMs about the punishment they received, the user receives double punishment time, or a + warn. (Does not apply in game, if you think a mod did something wrong, DM a Chat head Moderator or above.)
Quoting someone for what they said is not a warnable offence on sight. However you may be asked to delete the message (eg. saying that someone said non-english but actually using the non-english word).
Users cannot be unbanned on discord, unless the ban reason was false, or lack of proof.
Staff members will start to use the mute command when a user has reached the qualifications for a ban ONCE, AKA: warnings already given, depends on the severity. It acts as a buffer before the ban applies. As always, there are exceptions.
If you are verified, there will be a warning in the DMs stating you to change the offending item if you are online or actively talking. You have 30 minutes to correct yourself. If not/refused, you will be kicked from the R2DA Discord server. If you are unverified, you will be kicked on sight.
