Chat rules and penalties associated with non-compliance
Welcome, warriors!

As chat moderation tools have appeared in the game last week, we would like to present to you a short list of suggestions and rules for live chat in Gloria Victis.

The Gloria Victis chat is a platform to facilitate communication between players. Respect for other users – even for those in opposite nations – is a fundamental principle. Remember that there is another human on the other side – a Saucy Azeb, a vulgar Ismir, or a Midlander who is self-conscious – we are all children of the Greatfather. :)

Note:

Please remember that we are not "judges" and we are not foolproof, so we won't be applying penalties for every single minor improper action. However, it doesn't mean you are free to insult other players as a response to what you consider an offensive message or improper behavior. If you are still going to take risk of breaking the rules, please be mature enough to take the consequences instead of pointing fingers at other people, especially when your action would be doing more harm to the community than the potential message you're replying to.

Also, please remember that every further mute will last longer and could evolve into a ban like it already happened for many other users who have been consequently doing damage to our Community.

1. The account owner is fully responsible for the messages posted to the chat by all users of his/her account.

2. Chat content that is abusive, vulgar, pornographic, homophobic, offends religious feelings, political beliefs, or propagates violence is prohibited.

3. Building tension between the nations existing in the game is not prohibited but everything should remain within common sense.

4. It is forbidden to use obscene guilds and characters names.

5. Please treat others the way you wish to be treated.

List of offenses:

– Offending other players: Things that may also be considered offensive: deliberate humiliation, comparisons to animals, mocking. Moderator also has the right to penalize the player for offending the immediate family of another chat user and abusing other user's real-life private data
– Spamming, flooding, cluttering with one-word phrases, writing sentences in capital letters or "waves", using pictograms, Windows character map, deliberate spelling mistakes, stretching chat with too long of messages
– Excessive placement of links to external sites, videos, forums
– Provocations
– Copy and pasting private/mail messages into chat
– Posting in the chat linking the script opening pages, links intended to "scare" players, YT links with vulgarisms, insulting other users and players
– Distribution of content/links containing pornography
– Distribution of photographs and/or personal data without the consent of the owner
– Encouraging the use of bugs in the game and promoting bots/exploits to popularize them among other players
– Sabotaging an enemy nation by attempting to force its players to leave or change faction (i.e. using the alternative accounts to spam chat messages in the enemy capital city)

Chat users may be muted, kicked from the server or banned (temporarily or permanently) by the administrator or moderator for abuse or breaking chat rules.

If you have problems with individual players - especially on whispers - we encourage you to use the ability to mute them on your side. Massive spamming on whispers, breaking the chat rules and other improper behaviors can be reported through the in-game reporting tool ("report player" in the ESC menu).
