The Smithtainment Gaming Network consists of a number of game servers. While each server has its own rules and staff members, the entire network also has its own independent rules.
You are expected to read and understand these rules. Ignorance of the rules is not an acceptable excuse.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU NEED TO USE COMMON SENSE WHILE PLAYING ON OUR SERVER (unless you’re fooling around then tell the Administrators/Moderators). If there are very few people online we don’t care if you mess around as long as the people online agree.
—-DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING—-
- NO usage of racial slurs in a hateful or otherwise disrespectful way. Softer variants of a slur are given a verbal warning. If this continues, a permanent ban will be issued.
- Do NOT impersonate staff or players. This includes having a [STAFF] tag, [ADMIN] tag, etc.
- Do NOT disrespect players or staff. Doing this can result in a ban without warning.
- Do NOT chat spam or mic spam.
- EXAMPLES: Having music playing through your mic, Singing into your mic, Being obnoxious in chat or voice, Shouting at your mic, Having your mic volume too high, Sending repetitive messages with the intent to be annoying.
- Do NOT deny players access to other parts of the map. EXAMPLES: Door Blocking (placing objects in front of a door), Door Locking (spamming “e” to prevent a door from opening), or Prop Blocking (placing objects in a corridor with malicious intent).
- Do NOT ghost. This includes giving a living player information that they wouldn’t already know. This includes using third-party chat software or an in-game method to share information.
- Do NOT self-advertise in a malicious way. This includes attempting to drive players away from our community by advertising another server or network.
- Does NOT include steam names (unless it is an IP address or an explicit invitation to join that server/network).
- YouTube and Twitch are FINE as long as you aren’t spamming via voice/text OR if it’s not directly advertising another gaming network/discord. If you wish to advertise your YouTube or Twitch we have a discord in which you can do so.
- Users MUST join with 3 consecutive English characters or 3 consecutive characters that can be interpreted in English (If a user has less than 3 characters then they must have a MAJORITY of acceptable characters).
- Do NOT exploit the map to get to areas that would be otherwise unreachable.
- Do NOT intentionally disrupt or hinder gameplay.
- Do NOT use third-party programs to cheat, hack, or abuse the mechanics of the game.
- This is an English-speaking network. You MUST speak and use English exclusively on our platforms.
- Do NOT abuse any commands that come with a rank you have earned/purchased.
- Do NOT harass players or staff.
- Sprays CANNOT contain pornography of any kind, racial slurs, or otherwise distasteful content.
- Do NOT intentionally leave the server to avoid punishment.
- Do NOT post any links in the chat. The reasoning behind this is that people can send out malicious links such as viruses/malware, porn, etc.
- All live streams must have a 5-minute delay to prevent ghosting IF you are streaming on our TTT or Prop Hunt servers. You do not need a delay on our current other ones, however.
The following actions may be taken in this order [unless violating a more serious offense]:
- Players will receive warnings
- Players will be kicked from the server
- Players will be banned for up to a week
- Players will be banned permanently
- Bypassing a server ban can result in an IP ban
All rules are subject to change in the future, and more can be added in the future.
ANY DECISIONS MADE BY A MODERATOR/ADMINISTRATOR ARE FINAL!
