Murder Rules
#1
Dinkleberg's Murder Rules


>RDM is not allowed
Random Deathmatch (abbreviated to "RDM") is a term used to explain 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 KOS'd by another player, and its a confirmed KOS.
- Special rounds/PR rounds: The regular rules of rdm DO NOT apply to special rounds. Yes RPG says they do, but they do NOT.
If you are rdm'ing the player known as dan or Jammin it's okay ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (not really please don't rdm.)
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.
Examples of RDM: Popcorn/KFC rdm, Pushing off buildings and causing immediate death, shooting innocents, and more.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications
Punishment 1: Slay for the NEXT round.
Punishment 2: 24-hour ban
Punishment 3: 1 week ban
Punishment 4: Permanent ban


>Mass RDM is not allowed
Mass is to describe when 3+ innocent players are killed in a round by means of popcorn/kfc, pushing off buildings, shooting, etc.
Exclusions are the same as regular RDM.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications + Slay for the NEXT round.
Punishment 1: 3 day ban.
Punishment 2: 2 week ban.
Punishment 3: Permanent ban


>False KOS is not allowed
False KOS is when you say someone is the murderer, without knowing for certain. In order to call a KOS at least ONE of the following criteria MUST be met.
- You see the knife in the players hand.
- You see them murder someone with your own eyes.
- You see them sprinting, as only the murderer can sprint.
- Do NOT KOS off of skin! Players may change skin mid round! This can cause RDM.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notifications
Punishment 1: Slay NEXT round.
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 24 hour 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 in game items work. Do not attempt to hide or go into spots which are unreachable for normal players.

>Do not chat/mic spam
Use your common sense here.

Do not excessively use soundboards/voice changers, or share background noises via the mic.

If your grade school teacher wouldn’t have allowed it, don’t do it here either. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

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.
Racism is not tolerated.
Spamming players with trade requests or private messages is considered a form of harassment, as is instigating issues.

>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 game play, then there is a problem. As a player, inform staff if a conversation is bothering you. Our rules are mostly 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 and can fall into harassment punishments.
- 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: Ban based on severity of situation (24hr+)

>Ghosting/Teaming/Sparing is not allowed
Ghosting is when a dead player tells another living player information they aren't supposed to know.
Example: You die, private message the sheriff/a player who the murderer is.
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.
Example: Murderer giving other people the gun, aka friends, etc.
The individual able to kill will be the one punished here (detective or murderer).

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification + Mute/Gag for round(for verbal ghosting)
Warning 2: Verbal/Chat Notification + Slay NEXT round
Punishment 1: Kick
Punishment 2: One week ban
Punishment 3: Permanent 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 1: Verbal/Chat Notification+Mute/Gag for round

Punishment 1: Kick
Punishment 2: Ban based on severity of situation (1-3 day)

>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, leaving to avoid RDM punishment, etc). If you disagree with the rules of our server, you are welcome to go to our forums and make rule change suggestions. You may also submit a staff abuse thread (be sure to read and follow format).

>No advertising
As of 23 June 2021 a temporary zero tolerance policy is being put in place. Anyone posting a link in the Murder server (excluding links to our forums or discord) will receive a permanent ban until an investigation can be conducted. This policy is being put into action due to individuals who have knowingly posted links that not only violate our rules, but they also violate laws of the United States of America to which the servers are hosted.
A general rule of thumb for chat, is it a link to the Dinkleberg forums? No? Don't post it. The same rule of thumb can be applied to the voice chat.
Examples of advertising:
- Getting people to join another server
- NSFW links (Instant permanent ban)
- Hack links (Instant permanent ban)
- YouTube advertising
- Twitch advertising

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification + Mute/gag for round
Punishment 1: Permanent Ban


>Do not delay
Delaying is when the murderer intentionally doesn’t kill for longer than 2 minutes. No one likes waiting an entire round for nothing to happen.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification/csay message
Punishment 1: Slay
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 24 hour ban
Punishment 4: 1 week ban



>Do not gun camp
Gun camping is when a murderer sits on the gun dropped from a dead sheriff or stays too close and keeps players from picking it up.
You may not hold the gun to prevent it from being picked up.
Murderers are permitted to hide a gun if they do so quickly.
Do not throw a gun out of the map.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification/csay message
Punishment 1: Slay NEXT round
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 24 hour ban


>Do not Murder Bait
Murder baiting is lying to make it appear that you are the murderer in order to cause RDM. The person who kills the baiter will not be punished, only the baiter will.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification/csay message
Punishment 1: Slay NEXT round
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: Ban based on situation (1-3 days)


>Do not killbind to avoid dying to the special roles
This one comes and goes but players will either use kill binds or will purposefully kill themselves by other means to stop the murderer/sheriff from getting the kill. This ruins the game for players on their special role rounds and discourages people from sticking around.
Killbinding here and there for fun is okay, but doing it purposefully is NOT okay.

Warning 1: Verbal/Chat Notification/csay message
Punishment 1: Slay NEXT round
Punishment 2: Kick
Punishment 3: 24 hours


Special thanks to Nuru, Norm, Leviathan, August, Blurgh, Burb, Nicky, and Penguin for revising and writing these rules over the years.
