Dinkleberg's Murder Rules

>RDM is not allowed
Random Deathmatch (abbreviated to "RDM") is a term used to denote when a player randomly kills other players without valid reasons. The only accepted reasons are the following:
-Crossfire - when a player accidentally hits another player whilst attempting to kill a murderer.
-End of rounds - after the scoreboard has appeared upon the end of a round.
-KOS - The player was KOSed by another player
If you kill an innocent bystander and your reason isn't listed above, you will receive a warning. The same is true for killing a murderer without knowing if they were a murderer or a bystander.
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications
Punishment 1: Slay
Punishment 2: 24-hour ban 
Punishment 3: 1 week ban

>False KOS targeting is not allowed      
False KOS is lying about who the murderer is to get someone killed. It’s not cool and it’s not allowed. 
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications
Punishment 1: Slay
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 24 hour ban

>No chat/mic spamming
Use your common sense here. Screaming, singing, whistling, humming, and otherwise making noises in your mic is not allowed. Do not play music, use soundboards, or share background noises via the mic excessively either. Do not repeatedly type or say the same thing either (spam) through text or voice chat. If your grade school teacher wouldn’t have allowed it, don’t do it here either. 
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification
Warning 2: Verbal/Chat Notification+Mute/Gag for Round
Warning 3: Verbal/Chat Notification+Mute/Gag for Map
Punishment 1: Kick
Punishment 2: 12 Hour Ban

>Do not disrespect/harass players or staff
Harassing or disrespecting other players, including staff members, is not allowed and will not be tolerated. Examples of prohibited behavior include being rude to other players based on their race, gender, age, voice, mental/physical abilities, and/or asking them to do inappropriate things. Spamming players with trade requests or private messages is considered a form of harassment, as is instigating issues. Bounties are also considered a form of harassment.
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications
Warning 2: Mute/Gag for the round
Warning 3: Mute/Gag for the map
Punishment 1: Kick
Punishment 2: Ban based on severity of situation (24hr+)
Punishment 2: Ban based on severity of situation (Week ban to permanent ban)

>Limit and/or avoid discussing sensitive topics
We don’t mind you chatting and talking with others, but, when it starts to offend people or interfere with gameplay, then there is a problem. As a player, inform staff if a conversation is bothering you. Our rules are relaxed, but we don’t want anyone to feel unwelcome or offended on our server. If it’s edgy, don’t do it. 
-Discussions involving racism, sexism, homophobia, rape references, and/or pedophilia will not be permitted. 
-Discussions involving politics, religion, suicide, or overly sexual topics should generally be limited. 
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications
Warning 2: Mute/Gag for the round
Warning 3: Mute/Gag for the map
Punishment 1: Kick
Punishment 2: Ban based on severity of situation (24hr+)
Punishment 2: Ban based on severity of situation (Week ban to permanent ban)

>Body/door/prop blocking is not allowed
Using your character's body to block doors, spamming E on doors to prevent other people from passing through them, and using props to prevent other players from attacking you is not permitted.
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification
Punishment 1: Slap
Punishment 2: Slay
Punishment 3: Kick
Punishment 4: 24 hour ban

>Ghosting is not allowed
Ghosting is when a dead player tells another living player information they aren't supposed to know. Example: Player one has died to player two. Player one has messaged player three that player two is a murderer.
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification+Mute/Gag for round
Warning 2: Final Chat Notification+Mute/Gag for map
Punishment 1: 24 hour ban
Punishment 2: One week ban

>Teaming and/or Sparing is not allowed
Teaming is when a murderer and a sheriff both decide to allow each other to live. As a murderer, you are not allowed to spare other players continuously — therefore delaying the round. This delays and defeats the object of the game. The individual able to kill will be the one punished here (detective or murderer).
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification
Punishment 1: Slay
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 12 hour ban

>No Trolling
Trolling is the act of breaking multiple rules purposefully/ blatantly doing the opposite of what is told of them. Situations involving serious trolling will be handled through reasonable staff discretion, alongside the prescribed punishments. Impersonating staff members or players without their permission is considered a form of trolling.

Warning 2: Verbal/Chat Notification+Mute/Gag for map
Punishment 1: Kick
Punishment 2: 1-3 day ban
Punishment 3: 2 week ban
Punishment 4: Permanent ban

>Listen to staff members 
Do not leave to avoid punishment, (i.e. Leaving right after a staff member mutes/gags you just to be ungagged on return). If you disagree with the rules of our server, you are welcome to go to our forums and make rule change suggestions - Forums Link. 
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification
Punishment 1: Mute/Gag/Kick (Depending on the situation.)

Punishment 1: Kick 
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 24 Hour Ban
Punishment 4: 3 Day Ban

>No advertising 
Examples of advertising include linking to other servers, Youtube channels, and other streaming platforms. Advertising hacks or illegal content will be treated differently, resulting in you receiving a permaban and an advertisement of our forums where you can appeal. 
Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification
Punishment 1: Mute/Gag for round
Punishment 2: Mute/Gag for map
Punishment 3: 1-3 day ban

>Do not hack, exploit, or otherwise avoid the game's intended limits
This includes hacking, and exploiting maps. Do not try to escape the map bounds or exploit map bugs that provide an unfair advantage to gameplay. Do not intentionally crash the server. Do not abuse console commands to exploit the way ingame items work. Do not attempt to hide or go into spots which are unreachable for normal players. Hacking/Intentionally crashing the server will result in a permanent ban.

Punishment 1: Kick

Punishment 1: Slay
