These are guidelines staff members should follow if disciplinary actions must be taken in presence of broken rules or someone the staff deemes a threat.
- Two warnings must always be given, unless it is a hack, which requires one warning. Warnings can only be passed if the threat is fatal to the server.
- If the warnings did not work, kick the player. If the issue is related to the chat temp-mute the player instead of kicking them. If they found their way around the mute then they can be kicked.
- For initial temp-muting ensure the player is not muted for over a day. If the player continues to be a problem on the server the muting time can be extended, but after it is extending it should be discussed with other staff members to determine if it needs any changes. If you believe a player needs permanent muting, discuss this with other staff.
- If kicking the player did not help, warn them that if they continue they will have to be temporary banned. Issues related to chat can not cause a player to be banned.
- Temporary banning should be discussed with other online staff members to decide the time. If this is not possible or the threat is too big to be risked, you may temp-ban; however, make sure that this is the appropriate response and ensure the initial temp-ban is not over a day. If you are a moderator or admin and could not receive input from online staff, you may temp-ban the player for the time you found appropriate, but make sure to report it to the other staff to determine if there need to be changes.
- If a player seems to be hacking and kicking them did not work, follow the temp-ban rules. Then discuss with higher staff if a permanent ban is needed.
- If a banned player comes on with an alternate account (you can check with /seen) do not harass them unless they continue to cause a problem. If this is the case ip ban them or contact a staff member that can.
