Flaming:

Flaming a member of Solak is strictly against the rules. Attacking a player and insulting them with the intent of causing harm is a mutable offence and is not taken lightly.

Spamming:

Spamming is the act of consistently typing in order to be a nuisance; whether it be spamming @@@@@, spamming your bank sale, spamming another server etc. It is also a mutable offence. You will be warned, and then punished should you continue.

Multi-logging:

You are allowed to be logged into a maximum of 3 accounts at one time. Using these accounts together to break rules, abuse a safe-spot on bosses or in any other way use these accounts to manipulate mechanics is not acceptable and will result in a jail and potential ban. 

Macroing/Botting:

The use of any 3rd party program is strictly prohibited. Ensure you're always at your computer and attentive to your client. Staff members actively test to see if you are there, so ensure you are or you are at risk of having items and/or stats removed/reset.

AFK Training:

AFK training is training while you're not at the computer, whether this is using an auto-clicker, auto retaliate or botting. None of these are allowed. Make sure you are present at the computer or risk punishment & levels reset.
 

Scamming:

Scamming is a bannable offence. Tricking someone or intentionally trying to benefit out of their mistake and/or your abuse will result in an instant ban. This can range from selling them the wrong item promising it is better than it is, to switching up rules at Duel Arena to get the one up on them. It is not allowed and treated extremely seriously.

Bug Abuse:

Abusing a bug in which you have discovered or been told of is bannable. Should you discover a bug, report it instantly on the Forums or to a Staff Member, and from then on do not use the bug for your advantage. Should you be found abusing a bug after reporting it, or abusing a bug without reporting it, you will be punished accordingly.

Harassment:

Intentionally harassing players of Solak will result in a Jail. Trying to ruin someone else's experience on the game in order to get a laugh or a rise is not acceptable. This can range from crashing someone at a boss over and over, to following people and annoying them. This also includes flame baiting to get a rise out of someone. Do not do this, people just want to have fun, don't be the reason they don't.

Staff Harassment:

Staff decisions are final - do not argue with a staff's decision. If they kick someone from the Friends chat, there's no need for "Why did you do that". If you feel it was undeserved come straight to an Admin+ about it. Any decision they make is easily traceable and will be looked at should someone come to an Admin/report the staff member. Do not bring it up in Friends chat, their PM or Public chat. It is not worth the stress, it can be solved by talking to an Admin+.

Cursing:

We're all adults (most of us). There's nothing wrong with the odd shit, fuck and cunt, but don't overdo it. These words shouldn't be so common in your vocabulary that you are using them in every sentence. It is acceptable in frustration or general discussion, however, don't use these words in a derogatory manner or too often. If you do, you run the risk of being muted. This also includes any potentially offensive display names.

Friends Chat:

The Friends chat is intended as a help channel for new players, hence new players instantly joining this chat. Do not make it anything other than that. If you want to talk openly with your friends create a Clan Chat and do so there. Nothing's wrong with a bit of General talk but if it gets in the way of people receiving help please stop. All rules should be followed in the Friends chat. Do not promote discussions about politics, hard drugs, debatable topics, racism and other RSPS'. Use of any abusive or derogatory terms and words will result in being kicked. Any other language than English within the Friends chat is unacceptable as our preferred speaking language is English. Repeated offences of not speaking the preferred language within the Friends Chat may result in a kick.

Racism:

Racism is strictly forbidden. There's not much to say here; don't be racist, racially insensitive or promote racial talk. Racism is not tolerated at all on Solak, and thus you will be muted if any is used. Repeat offenders may be permanently muted or banned.

VPN Voting:

While VPN voting may seem beneficial to the server's rankings, it actually runs the risk of ruining them. Do not VPN vote. We can be removed from voting sites which would be counter intuitive to our cause. Please limit your votes to maximum 3 per day, using your PC, Mobile internet and perhaps your siblings phone/work internet. If found to be VPN voting your rewards will be removed and your account disabled.

Real World Trading:

Donations in Solak must only be used to pay for other items, services or donations. Do not sell your Solak items or gold for real life money (paypal, bitcoin etc) or for real runescape gold/accounts. Any player found guilty of this will receive an instant IP-BAN without warning and without appeal.

 

Gambling Rules

Scamming:

Scamming of any kind will not be tolerated. The gambling system is scam proof in regards to the mechanics. However, attempting to give fake prices for items to manipulate your opponent is unacceptable and will be punished accordingly.

Pots:

Pots must be specified and agreed upon prior to gambling to avoid any confusion.

Harassment:

Do not harass other players to gamble with you if they have already made it clear that they are not interested. Repeat offenders may be muted.

Flaming:

Flaming in the Friends Chat or Yell as a result of a loss or unfortunate event will not be tolerated and will result in a mute.

Bugs:

If a bug is found, do not abuse it. Please report it to a staff member immediately. Failure to do so will result in serious consequences such as resets, bans and bank wipes.

Friends Chat:

Brief mentions of gambling are okay, but please try to keep gambling discussions in the 'Gambling' friends chat. Examples: "Fping @ fp!" or "Anyone looking to gamble?"
