ClassicMS User Code of Conduct

Communication Guidelines

When you communicate on services served by or related to ClassicMS, you are held accountable for how you express yourself. While we respect your freedom to express yourself, there are certain boundaries that must be maintained. We have a zero-toleration policy for speech that could be offensive or vulgar to others. We strictly prohibit discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, veteran status, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy status, sex, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, mental or physical disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, or any other characteristics protected under applicable federal, state, or local law.

Cheating Guidelines

You are solely responsible for your account and the actions that take place on your account. Cheating of any form will result in immediate action up to and including account suspension, termination, and/or deletion. Using third-party programs to alter the gameplay or game files/resources to gain an unfair advantage is also considered cheating. Exploitation of others, scamming, or engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is also considered cheating and will not be tolerated.

Behavioral Guidelines

Behavior that intentionally detracts from other user's experience (i.e. griefing, kill-stealing, throwing) or intentionally provoking other users (i.e. "trolling", instigating, exasperating) is not acceptable. We expect our users to treat each other with respect and to promote and uphold a positive community. Inappropriate behavior will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and will be left to ClassicMS's decision, violation of these guidelines will result in account restrictions.

Additional Guidelines
  • While we encourage users to report inappropriate behavior, false reporting with the intent of sabotaging other users will result in account restrictions and/or penalties.
  • If you are unsure if a particular action violates our rules or code-of-conduct, please reevaluate your action before taking it. It is better to err on the side of caution than face the repercussions for a wrongful action.
  • We reserve the right to restrict users and accounts as much as possible to maintain a positive community and experience for our users.
