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 Player Report using Application Forms. The punishments for each offense count are listed below with each rule. Exceptions may be made for special circumstances. If you feel you were punished for an invalid reason, we must ask you to refrain from making a commotion and instead submit an appeal, quash or reprieve in the correct form. All rules are subject to change at any time, should the need for it arise. A User's offence count for: Spamming, Capital Letters, Staff Impersonation, User Impersonation, Hackusations, Harassment, Swearing, Inappropriate Chat, Non-English, and Player Discrimination reset after three months. This is conducted on a rolling period. However, punishments already applied, unlike the punishments on the Forums, will not be automatically removed. You will be required to send the proper appeal, quash or reprieve for such action to occur. Minor offences are usually slip-ups, or perhaps something done in the heat of the moment. While these offences cannot be tolerated, they can usually be forgiven. If offenders refuse to heed the warning and continue with their misdeeds, staff should proceed with the punishments listed below. Exceptions can be made for players who have been around some time and are clearly aware that they're breaking the rules. | Player Disrespect – Hackusations [ 15 Minute Mute | 1 Hour Mute | 1 Day Mute | 1 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 30 Day Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban ] Player Disrespect - Hacusations is when you continuously claim a person hacked.
