Server rules are subject to change without prior notice, checking once in a while is advised.
Offenses and their punishments set above are a default template, if seen appropriate by server staff, punishments and their duration may be changed or added as seen fit.
Although we have tried to cover most of the rules and their punishments above, common sense still seems to lack. Server owners reserve the right to mute, ban or kick (Vice versa applies) for any reason.
