PostSubject: Rules & Guidelines   Sun Nov 30, 2014 8:23 pm

Rules & Guidelines

These rules are applicable to every existing member on Dreamscape Duel Academy, violating these may cause in times bans and eventually permanent bans if seen fit by an Administrator. Warning can be given by any member of staff with moderation and bans can be conducted by any member of staff when no Moderator or Admin is online.

Offenses are divided into 2 groups: Moderate and Severe. Any offense that falls into any of these categories will be considered serious and will be dealt with as soon as possible by a member of staff. If members have any complaints or wish to inform the staff of any breach of the rules/guidelines you may Private Message an Admin or a Moderator with sufficient evidence to back you up.

Having 5 warnings will result in a permanent ban (lifetime ban). Having 4 warnings will result in a times ban (usually a couple of days but can last weeks) and all of your DP being removed. Having 3 warning will result in a warning put on record by a staff member. Having 2 or 1 warnings will result in a PM from a staff member explaining your offense. However warnings can deteriorate over time if the user behaves.

Trivial offenses will result in 1 or two warning depending on the seriousness of the offense and a PM will be sent to the user but this will not be put on record. Moderate offenses will be given 3 warnings whereas severe offenses will result in 4 or 5 warnings depending on the seriousness of the offense.

Trivial Offenses:
