Below is a list of our rules. Note that admins do not necessarily judge these rules to the letter, and that attempting to skirt the rules may still end up in a punishment. Some of these rules are left intentionally vague, others can be clearly defined. In any case, consider these a set of guidelines rather than a set-in-stone list of precise rulings. These should be up to date here, but in case they are not the official rules list can be found on our forums here
