Official Rules
Last Updated – 11/29/2018

All users are to read and follow these rules to avoid the punishment of kick, mute or ban. If for any reason a rule needs to be added or modified, the Québec Games administration team has the right to do so. It falls onto the responsibility of our players to be aware when said changes occur, thus it is recommended to review our rules regularly in case of any updates. Thank you for choosing Québec Games, enjoy your stay!


Rules

The below infractions are offenses that we believe may ruin or affect in a negative way other players’ gameplay experience. By following a few simple rules, we can all help make Québec Games stay a great place to play on.


Blocking
Blocking pathways or doors, by using either indestructible props or your character’s body is not permitted.

▶ Why do we have this rule?
This prevents other players from entering or leaving specific areas.

Disrespect
All players have the right to be spoken to or addressed in a friendly, respectful manner.

Behaviour which is not allowed:
  •  Discrimination – negative comments about skin colour, gender, or other personal qualities

  •  Insulting other players in any way
  •  Trolling players
  •  Encouraging violence or hatred towards other players
  •  Falsifying information about other players
  •  Sharing another player’s personal information without their consent
  •  Advertising – posting links or IP addresses to other servers.
  •  Spamming – pasting the same message over and over
  •  Microphone spamming – screaming, loud background noises, playing music or repetitive sounds
  •  Talking about self-harm, or other deeply negative experiences
  •  Threatening to DDoS the server – this offense will result in a permanent ban

▶ Why do we have this rule?
We aim for every server to be a fun and safe place for players to communicate and interact with each other respectfully. Our chat environment is a good way to talk to other players, discover new friends and have fun while playing the game. 

Teaming
Cross-teaming is not permitted. This is when a Sheriff and a Murderer both allow each other to live.

▶ Why do we have this rule?
Teaming with a murderer or a sheriff considerably lower other bystanders’ chance to survive, which ruins gameplay experience.

Delaying
As the Murderer, delaying rounds by sparing other players, or simply doing nothing is not permitted.

▶ Why do we have this rule?
Dead players may be waiting for a new round to start so they can play. Even if you didn’t kill anybody as the murderer, this rule still applies regardless.

Jukebox Abuse
Our servers feature jukeboxes on all maps, which can be used to play YouTube videos or songs. However, please use appropriate songs.

Type of videos which is not allowed:
  •  Ear piercing videos (commonly referred as “ear rape”)

  •  Racist videos
  •  Hate speeches

▶ Why do we have this rule?
This rule is in place to provide a positive in-game experience for all players and provide a calm environment where inappropriate concepts and themes are not shared publicly.

Speaking another language
Speaking another language than English is not permitted and is to be avoided at most.

▶ Why do we have this rule?
We want to ensure everyone understands each other, be it in voice or text chat.

AFK Boosting
Gaining stats, points or items in an illegitimate way is not permitted. This includes, but is not limited, to the purposeful use of alternate accounts, or avoiding the AFK detector in an attempt to gain an unfair stat or point advantage.

▶ Why do we have this rule?
This rule prevents an unfair stat or point advantage over other players.

Selling Items for Money
Players have the right to play in an environment which is safe from phishing, scamming and item selling. Therefore, trading items or points for real money is strictly prohibited, unless that money is spent on the
store. If we notice that you attempted to sell your inventory items or other virtual goods for real money on the Discord server or In-Game, you will be trade banned permanently. 

▶ Why do we have this rule?
As a Garry’s Mod server, we do not have any control over trades that aren’t processed through our internal trade feature. However player safety is very important to us, so where possible we take steps to help protect our players from being tricked or subjected to scams.

Cheating
We have a zero tolerance policy against cheating and if you are found to do so, you will be permanently banned from the server.

What is considered cheating:
  •  Exploiting

  •  Bunny Hop scripts
  •  Hacks
  •  Modifications of your client that allow you to gain an unfair advantage over others

▶ Why do we have this rule?
Players have the right to play in an environment which is fair and free of cheating and exploiting.


Warning System

Each time you break one of the rules listed above, you may receive a warning for it, depending on what rule you broke. In-game, you can easily check how many warnings you currently have by typing !warnings in chat. A warning can be displayed in green or red, depending on whether that warning is active or not. Active warnings are green, while inactive warnings are red. Each warning expires (turns red) after 24 hours.


If you’ve never been banned in the past
2 Active warnings = 3 days or 4320 minutes ban
4 Warnings over 14 days = 5 days or 7200 minutes ban

If you’ve been banned in the past
This is only applicable if at least one of your ban(s) reason mentions “X Warnings in X Days”

2 Active warnings = 7 days or 10080 minutes ban
4 Warnings over 28 days = 14 days or 20160 minutes ban


A staff member’s decision is final

As staff members, we’re all required to follow the exact same rules that apply to regular players, however we also deal with moderation on the server. Having to deal with complaints about one topic over and over is ridiculous. If you’re having an issue with a staff member’s final decision, please create a ticket and a staff member of a higher ranking will handle it.
