1. Respect Everyone
You are expected to respect everyone on our servers. If you disrespect the staff, community
regulars, or any other player on the server, you will be banned. Any flaming (insulting)
of any type on the server will result in immediate action from an admin. We will not tolerate
elitism, insults for an individual's perceived lack of "skill", or the demeaning of new/F2P players.
Any player caught cheating and/or exploiting will be banned. This includes building
under or through maps and sniping through grates on dustbowl. Admins, and only
admins will decide who cheats and who does not. The proper course of action
would be to record a demo of the user in question, and then post it in the voogru
forums for admin review.
3. Auto Balance
Trying to force an auto balance is prohibited. This includes returning to the
spectator after joining a team or being auto assigned, or using the retry command
in console in hopes of forcing an auto balance.
4. Vote Kicking
The vote kick tool is only to be used legitimately. Any abuse of this tool will
result in a ban from the server.
A) Before a user can initiate a vote kick, he/she must have sufficient evidence
to prove that a possible offender has violated a rule. This user will later
be called upon for proof of the rule infraction, and if he/she is unable to
provide it, a ban will implemented for vote abuse.
B) If a vote kick fails, and it is for a valid reason, and you have proof,
post it on the forums with their steam id and the offender will be handled accordingly.
This type of behavior is not tolerated whatsoever. Anything that even implies
a racist/discriminatory/sexist remark or action will result in a permanent ban.
Do not spectate. The voogru servers have a large load of player traffic, and
spectating wastes a slot for another potential player. If you wish to spectate
to screenshot/record a demo of a possible cheater/exploiter, you may only do
so when an admin isn't online, and only for a brief period time. Only one person
may spectate at a time for the purpose of recording demos/screenshotting.
7. Admin Impersonation
Falsely claiming to be a voogru server admin and/or falsely implying one has
the ability to enforce rules on voogru servers is not permitted. Players found
violating this rule will be banned for an extended period of time.
Profanity is permitted, but to an extent. Excessive usage of profanity for no
reason will be met with administrative action. Profanity in player nicknames,
however, is not allowed at all.
9. Microphone Chat
During game play, you may not, under any circumstances, spam voice communication
with sound, music or useless chatter, regardless of the status of the game.
A ban will promptly follow people who ignore this rule.
10. Text Chat
Do not spam "say" and "say_team" channels with useless text.
This includes repeated trade requests/binds.
Advertising of websites or other servers is also prohibited.
Remember you are not the only one playing on the server. If you are not on a
melee map, and someone asks you to stop, or your team isn’t doing so well,
please adhere to their requests, or you will be dealt with accordingly.
12. In-Game Custom Sprays
Custom sprays may not contain any vulgar or pornographic images. Individuals
found with sprays of this type will be banned indefinitely.
13. Additional Notes
- By placing "voogru" anywhere in your name, the server will automatically
ban you (1 day ban).
- If you are a player that has been banned, and wish to be unbanned, you may
post an appeal in the "Banned Complaints" forum. Please read the complaints
guidelines, prior to making your post.
- If you have been banned, the "It was my brother, sister, mom, dad, grandpa,
grandma, girlfriend, boyfriend, dog, cat, mouse, bird, bot, zombie" excuse
does not work here. You are responsible for who uses your computer, and more
specifically, your STEAM ID..
-The -V- tag is the unofficial tag of the voogru community and anybody may
wear it. However, those who wear the tag may not falsely claim to be a donator
to the server or forum member if they are not one. If this occurs, that individual
will be dealt with accordingly.
