Updated terms of service for #Edgy1, Edgy Side Discord, and all relayed channels and Minetest servers.

This document was updated on Wednesday, August 8, 2019 at 00:16 UTC.

If you are in #Edgy1 in EdgyIRC, any channel relayed to #Edgy1, any Minetest server relayed to #Edgy1, in my Discord, or in any relayed Discord server, these rules apply to you. You are held responsible to these rules whether you read them or not. Remember, YOU, not me, are responsible for what YOU do. I claim full relief from liability under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (United States).

1. Always follow the rules of any service connected to our services that you are in. This includes relayed discord servers, IRC channels and networks, and Minetest servers connected to EdgyIRC.

2. Respect all staff. Never abuse them or talk back. If you disagree with a staff member’s actions, either approach them respectfully and considerately, or talk to me.

3. Bullying, harassment, racism, threats, hacking, libel, doxxing, or other similar behavior is NEVER allowed for ANY reason whatsoever. It is treated very seriously and is very strictly enforced. NO ONE is immune to this rule.

4. Illegal activity is not permitted, and may be reported in an appropriate manner.

5. No spamming, mass-highlighting, or ban-evading is permitted. If you have been banned from #Edgy1, the Discord server, or any related channel or Minetest server, and would like another chance, or think you were banned in error, please talk to Edgy1.

6. Staff reserve the right to ban, kick, or mute anyone for any reason, regardless whether these terms of service have been violated or not. Appeal bans to Edgy1.

7. Logging of chats in the IRC, Minetest servers, or Discord servers is allowed. If you speak in #Edgy1 or a related channel or server, you agree that anything you say may be recorded or logged with or without your knowledge. Also, if you break rules, logs may be used as grounds for a ban or even legal action.

8. Sexual talk in public chat is not permitted. Please use public chat appropriately. Sexual talk must be restricted to private messages or channels, and with consent of all involved.

9. Freedom of speech is guaranteed, provided that it violates none of the previous rules stated in this document. There are no “disallowed viewpoints”. If you feel staff has infringed on your free thought, please contact me.

10. This page may change at any time without notice. Please check periodically.

Additional rules for IRC:

1. Do not connect more clients at the same time than necessary.

2. Do not register more accounts than necessary.

3. Channel takeovers or mass-bans without authorization (if you are given +o) are NOT allowed.

4. Do not abuse bots, including network service bots such as ChanServ and NickServ, as well as channel bots such as trackr or lurk.

5. Always follow all channel-specific rules. Usually they can be found in “/topic” if they exist.

Additional rules for Minetest:

1. No griefing in any minetest server is allowed, except for TNT server. Griefing is destroying another’s builds without their permission, or unnecessarily destroying the landscape.

2. Usage of modified clients or CSM’s that give you an unfair advantage are not permitted without permission of the respective server owner. Creating lag is NEVER allowed.

3. For Empire of Legends: Please report technical issues with Empire of Legends to Agent or Bogdan if possible, as they maintain the mods of the server. Serious errors like reboot-loops or failure to connect are an exception, contact me for those.

Additional rules for Discord:

1. Please keep chat on topic for the channel you are in. For example, don’t talk about your dog in a channel about a Minetest server!

2. Changing nicknames and/or profile photos to look like another user or bot in the channel is not allowed.

3. Dating of any kind is not allowed in Discord channels. Take it to other servers or direct messaging.
