    • This is an official thread. It was posted on behalf of the TalentCraft Management Team.
    TalentCraft strives to be an enjoyable and safe environment for all those in our community. To achieve this, we have formulated specific rules and corresponding punishments that are enforced by our staff team. If you see an individual neglecting any of the following and there are no staff members present, then please submit a user report.

    Staff are recommended to issue a verbal warning for newer players who may not know the rules, and for lighter punishments. All rules are subject to change from the Management Team at any time, should the need for it arise.

    The warning points acquired from offenses not labeled as a Permanent Ban, expire after three months. In the event you are "Permanently Banned" for such offense, after points expire causing for your threshold to drop below ten points, you will be unbanned.

    In the event you believe you were punished unfairly, please do not cause a commotion. Please submit an appeal, quash or reprieve in the proper form, and it will be answered.

    The following thresholds are in place for the warning system:
    3 Points: 1 Day Ban
    4 Points: 2 Day Ban
    5 Points: 3 Day Ban
    6 Points: 7 Day Ban
    7 Points: 14 Day Ban
    8 Points: 30 Day Ban
    9 Points: 60 Day Ban
    10 Points: Permanent Ban
