- Alora Administration

 


In-Game Rules

 


Omicron / Blank reserves the right to punish you as they see fit.


| Appeal | Report a Player | Report a Staff Member | Report a Bug |

1. Flaming/Flame Baiting, Harassment, and Disrespect

Within the Alora community there is a various amounts of religious, cultural backgrounds of many beliefs. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs, and failing to accept that will result in punishment. We expect members to behave, act mature, and handle all what may be stressful situations accordingly. Flame baiting is also a punishable Offence and will be dealt with depending on the situation. Flame baiting is when one player deliberately attempts to make a player angry and get them to begin flaming. Please note that "joking" does not change the fact that you are breaking the rules of Alora, and you will be dealt with however a staff member sees fit. Trolling staff members and wasting their time is also not allowed. You are expected to treat the staff of Alora with the utmost respect as they are here solely to help the server. If you are found disturbing a staff member you will be dealt with accordingly.

 



First Offence - 24 hours Mute | Second Offence - 48 hours Mute | Third Offence - 72 hours mute | Fourth Offence - Perm mute

2. Racism and Religious Intolerance

Racism isn't tolerated on Alora. It's a simple rule, so follow it. Any names containing offensive racist terms will be dealt with harshly. Anyone found being racist in-game will also be dealt with harshly with no chance at appealing the Offence. This isn't acceptable in real life and definitely isn't acceptable here.

First Offence - 24 hours Mute | Second Offence - 72 hours Day Mute | Third Offence - Permanent Mute | Fourth Offence - IP-Mute

3. Advertisement

Advertisement on the forums and server is strictly dealt with, and an automatic ip-ban from the forums and in-game will be given. You will not be able to appeal this Offence. Those who have other situations that do NOT relate to RuneScape Private Relations can private message an Administrator for permission to advertise(Youtube,Twitch,etc), otherwise ALL advertisements will be dealt with as the same.

First Offence - Permanent Ban | Second Offence - IP-Ban

4. Misleading Links, Hacking, and Threatening

Misleading links are to never be posted on Alora. If you are posting a link to a YouTube video, we expect it to lead to YouTube. Otherwise your account will face action pertaining to being banned, or permanently banned from Alora. Hacking will never be tolerated on Alora, you will be instantly banned from the game forever, and never allowed back on Alora again. We will not tolerate such actions on Alora. Threatening members with anything will be an instant-automatic ban from Alora forever. We have zero tolerance for people who participate in these activities. DDOS threats will not be tolerated and is a federal Offence in many, if not, all countries.

First Offence - IP-Ban from the server and forums

5. Encouraging Others to Break the Rules

If you ask another player to do something that is against the rules, whether that player knows it's against the rules or not, that's considered encouraging others to break the rules. It is every member's responsibility to know and understand the rules before playing. Do not abuse others by trying to get them to break the rules of Alora.

First Offence - 24 hour mute | Second Offence - 48 hour mute | Third Offence - 72 hours mute| Fourth Offence - Permanent Mute

6. Real World Trading

Purchasing/selling goods, or services (accounts, real life items, RSGP, Microsoft points, riot points, other private server items for Alora items etc.) will not be tolerated and action will be taken if it continues. We don't have the time for members to come to us and tell us that they've been scammed or hacked. We will not be held responsible of the scam, or hacking, simply because it doesn't concern us.

Invading other communities is without question a permanent ban from Alora. We do not tolerate this and want to remain peaceful throughout the RSPS community.

First Offence - Permanent ban | Second Offence - IP-Ban

8. Backseat Moderation

Backseat moderation is something that we simply do not allow because it causes drama throughout the community and questions on whether or not we are an authority figure or if the members themselves are. While we are all equal, and should listen and learn from each other - that's simply how it is, we do not do this. Those who find something that needs to be reported or something of the sort, simply report it to a staff member, do not act like one and cause drama, as this only causes trouble.

Terms of Service Agreement

By being on the forums and server (this being implied that you've already read the rules), you understand that you are responsible for your own actions. You understand that the rules stated above will be enforced at all times and the administration has the ability to alter any of the statements above, despite what the rules state above, this is the administration's discretion. We have permission to do what we want with your account as they are a property of ours and you are merely 'playing' on it. You understand that when a rule is broken, your account will be dealt with accordingly and fairly as possible through the system that we have made for the staff team and how people are dealt with.

You understand that any sort-of attack (hacking, DDOS etc.) made against Alora will be dealt with accordingly, and you will be IP'd from the forums and server once found. If need-be your IP will be sent to the authorities.

You understand that we the administration have the ability and authority to alter your account at any time should we have to or feel we must check something onto one's account and agree that requesting a refund after an administrator has made an X change is not made.

You understand that the staff team is required to provide proof, however, we will not disclose a member's name (the one that reported you) if the member requests it. Many of the reports made in the report abuse board is hidden for a reason from others, however, we will do our best to provide the proof that we need.

You understand that we are not responsible for what is posted on these forums (while we will take action after it's either reported or we see it) so therefore someone that has been infected through these forums by a third party or by someone of this community, it's not our responsibility but it will be dealt with. So this being said, we are not responsible for ANY damage made to personal property nor information being stolen. Per this section, you understand that inappropriate posts (as said above though, once it's reported or we see it - it will be dealt with) that a child MAY encounter such as pornographic material, promoting drug related topics etc., it's not our responsibility, this is solely the parent's role. All emails or PMs to us by parents will either be replied to with simple words, or ignored and deleted - make no mistake, we will take care of it once reported or seen.

When reporting a member of the community you must provide a full screen picture of the client and computer. We will no longer be accepting reports that have been cut-out, cropped etc., we expect the entire picture to be there; if it's not then we will not deal with the report. If you happen to have a reason to report a staff member it needs to be video proof, we will no longer accept pictures as proof as it is very easy to falsify proof and we do not need unnecessary drama caused by that. All punishment times can be altered depending on the severity of the rule broken.

You understand that donations made to the administration of Alora are final, and the administration is under no obligation to refund such goods from our services. You understand that actions made by the administration for the donation system and processes are final, and no exceptions are made. You understand that there are little to no refund policies made unless done by an administrator member who can handle these situations themselves. You understand that if a donation is lost through a glitch - it will be refunded, however, if a member is hacked then you understand it is less likely to be refunded to not at all at the discretion of the administrator member (who can handle these type-of situations).

You hereby agree and by agreeing to these terms and accepting to register on these forums that you know that your contract with Alora.io also coorelates to the server and any service that is owned by us. You understand that because Alora is associated with US and Netherlands that that both the Electronic Signatures in Global and International Commerce act (ESGICA) and Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council laws are in effect within this community and failure to follow these rules will result in a permanent removal from the community.
