Account Rules

Post by LS-RP » Wed Apr 29, 2015 4:10 pm

1. Common Sense
  • You are not allowed to have a friend, family member or someone else answer the questions for you in the application process. Trying to hide your true identity when using any of our services (either with the help of proxies, VPN or other methods/programs) is strictly forbidden. Do not ask staff members to review your application, be patient. You are not allowed to make offensive posts on the UCP guestbooks of other users. You are not allowed to log into two accounts at once.
    Punishments: Warning or temporary ban depending on severity.
2. Account Security
  • You are NOT allowed to share or give out registered accounts to other people. This is a very serious offense which may get you banned permanently. Sharing of character applications or stories falls under this rule as well — they must be original and made without the help of anyone.

    Your IP, account and computer are your responsibility. Nobody else should be using your network, account or computer apart from you, so keep your passwords secure. If you think someone may know your account details, change them immediately. You will get no sympathy if a sibling or a friend of yours gains access to your account through your own carelessness and then gets you banned. Examples of what you should not do:
    • Giving your accounts away to your friends because they don't want to waste time registering.
    • You leave your password on display and your sibling logs into your account and gets banned.
    It is not allowed to import another player's character into your UCP account for any reason (including transferring namechanges and such). Doing so will result in your IP addresses crossing and you may be banned if that player gets banned in the future. If you'd like to gift another player a namechange/numberchange or a donation, then please donate $2 (or $5, $10, $15) to them directly via PayPal. Alternatively, you can donate via DaoPay and give that player your PIN number so that they can activate the donation.
    Punishments: Temporary or permanent ban depending on severity.
3. Ban Evading
  • You are not allowed to create or use other accounts whilst having an active ban on any of your characters. Doing so will only lower the chances of the original ban being lifted and will obviously lead to your new/alternative account being banned as well.
    Punishments: Temporary or permanent ban depending on severity.
    This rule applies to all services provided by LS-RP — game server, forum, IRC, Teamspeak, etc.
4. Marketing of LS-RP Features & Goods
  • You are not allowed to sell/buy or advertise the selling/buying of any in-game money, vehicles, properties, memberships or accounts to gain real life money. You are also not allowed to sell/buy Out Of Character items for/with In Character money/goods. In other words, no mixing of any IC/OOC goods and services. Examples:
    • Paying someone in-game cash in exchange for a skin mod.
    • Advertising on external websites that you are selling $1,000,000 LS-RP money for $1 real life money.
    • Buying donation memberships and selling them to other players for in-game cash.
    • Writing applications or creating accounts for players who are willing to pay you money.
    Punishments: Permanent ban for everyone involved — merchants and clients.
5. Illegal Names
  • You are not allowed to have celebrity names (i.e. easily recognizable in society) on your characters. The same goes for unrealistic names, gag names (e.g. Mike_Hunt, Ben_Dover, Al_Coholic, etc) and fun names that do exist in real life, but can still be considered trollish, like Gaylord.
    Punishments: Permanent admin-jail until you change your name — you will need to purchase a namechange.
    You are not allowed to use character names that have already been Character Killed (CK).
6. Transfer Requests
  • If you would like to transfer any of your existing money or properties from one of your characters to another, you must first acquire admin permission. This can be requested using the in-game command /re. When requesting permission, you must state a sufficient IC and OOC reason for requesting the transfer.

    1. Vehicles, weapons and drugs are not transferable - transfers are limited to money or properties.
    2. You are not allowed to transfer 100% of your assets (money and properties) from one character to another - a name-change should be purchased if you wish to transfer all of your wealth to a new name.

    Additionally, for security purposes, any large sum of money or property transactions between players require the approval of an online game administrator, e.g. a few million. If in doubt: just ask the admins.
    Punishments: Anything transferred without permission will be taken away from you and not be refunded.
7. Double Faction Permissions
  • Only one of your characters can be /invited into an official faction, unless you have been granted Double Faction permission. This rule does not apply to unofficial factions. More information can be found here.
    Punishments: If the faction leader has been lied to, or the truth has been twisted to allow you into the faction without permission, you will be kicked from it until permitted by both sides.
