Luring is not punishable on Elysian however, the only exception to this rule is luring in the support clan chat.
Advertising marketing, gambling, and other clan chats/servers will be strictly forbbiden in support clan chat.
We are here to help in any way possible but, we are not here for the ranting in the support clan chat about being punished or a player scammed you or a glitched happened. Use our resources for that linked at the top of this thread.
By being on the forums and server (this being implied that you've already read the rules), you understand that you are responsible for your own actions. You understand that the rules stated above will be enforced at all times and the administration has the ability to further the punishment despite what it states above, this is the administration's discretion. We have permission to do what we want with your account as they are a property of ours and you are merely 'playing' on it. You understand that when a rule is broken, your account will be dealt with accordingly and fairly as possible through the system that we have made for the staff team and how people are dealt with.
You understand that we the administration have the ability and authority to alter your account at any time should we have to or feel we must check something onto one's account and agree that requesting a refund after an administrator has made an X change is not made.
You understand that the staff team is required to provide proof, however, we will not disclose a member's name (the one that reported you) if the member requests it. Many of the reports made in the report abuse board are hidden for a reason from others, however, we will do our best to provide the proof that we need.
You understand that we are not responsible for what is posted on these forums (while we will take action after it's either reported or we see it) so therefore someone that has been infected through these forums by a third party or by someone of this community, it's not our responsibility but it will be dealt with. So this being said, we are not responsible for ANY damage made to personal property or information being stolen. Per this section, you understand that inappropriate posts (as said above though, once it's reported or we see it - it will be dealt with) that a child MAY encounter such as pornographic material, promoting drug-related topics etc., it's not our responsibility, this is solely the parent's role. All emails or PMs to us by parents will either be replied to with simple words, or ignored and deleted - make no mistake, we will take care of it once reported or seen.
When reporting a member of the community you must provide a full-screen picture of the client and computer. We will not be accepting reports that have been cut-out, cropped etc., we expect the entire picture to be there; if it's not then we will not deal with the report. If you happen to have a reason to report a staff member it needs to be video proof, we will not accept pictures as proof as it is very easy to falsify proof and we do not need unnecessary drama caused by that. All punishment times can be altered depending on the severity of the rule broken.
