Listed below are the official rules set by the management team here on Varrock that every player and staff member alike are expected to follow. Failure to follow these rules laid out here can result in a variety of different sanctions. 


In-Game Rules:

I. Communication and Conduct

A. The use of excessive disrespectful, inappropriate or offensive language towards another player. This can be regarding anything about him / her such as their gender, race, religion, morals, or opinions. We will allow minor cursing and bantering slide, so long as it is not excessive or offensive towards players. Here on Varrock we strive to have a community that is enjoying their stay, and thus this will not be tolerated under any means and will result in a mute under a staff members digression.

B. The state of toxicity. This can entail several behaviors but has to do with overly verb abusing, constant flaming and / or flame baiting, or spreading negativity to an extreme manner. The goal here is to have a positive community, not one constantly in a state of anguish. Throwing a rage fit in public will do nothing but get yourself muted.

C. Account names that contain inappropriate or disrespectful language or symbolism are strictly prohibited. Accounts made with these names will be forced for a name change or a ban.

D. The purpose of the Varrock Help chat is to help new or existing players with anything in regards to the game. You are welcome to stay, but avoid disputes and conflicts with fellow members. This is the first thing new players see, and thus keep any inappropriate language or bantering in another means of chat.

E. Harassment is strictly prohibited. This involves aggressive pressure or intimidation towards another player. If you are reported and caught for doing this to someone else, you will be muted immediately.

F. Spamming on Varrock is simply not allowed. This prevents us from having a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. If you are selling an item, or just simply announcing anything, limit it to three messages at most. We as players constantly read the chat, we get your point, no need to spam it. Spamming will result in a mute anywhere from one hour to permanent depending on the number of repeated offenses.

G. Luring a player to the wilderness in an attempt to kill them to steal their items is a form of deceptive behavior. This involves using scripts to convince a player to enter the wilderness whether it be in public chat or global chats. This will be taken very seriously and will result in a ban, removal of items from the lurers account, or at the very least a mute.


II. Advertising

A. The advertisement of another community that acts as a direct competitor to Varrock is strictly prohibited and will result in an instant ban. This punishment is permanent and all appeals for this will be ignored.

B. Common known links such as Youtube, Rune-Server, or anything along those lines are fine to post and permitted. If you question whether or not you are allowed to post something, contact a staff member for advice.


III. Misleading Links, Hacking or DDOS Threats

A. Misleading links are not allowed on either our forums or our discord and should not under any means be advertised on our server. A phishing link or any directories will result in instant removal from our community.

B. Hacking or DDOS Threats should never arrive on our platform. If you are threatening someone with these, expect to get permanently muted if the action is severe. If you are looking to play games of sort, this is not the place to do so. We have skilled members without the management team and will take immediate action towards these remarks.

C. If you are being threatened on these lines, contact a staff member immediately. Remember, this is most likely a bluff, they have no way of obtaining your information throughout our platform unless they send you anything in private. Do not click links if you do not trust the person sending them.


IV. Real Word Trading (RWT)

A. You are not allowed to trade any means of currency across other games in exchange for Varrock items. It is prohibited to use other means of trade for a benefit on Varrock. We strive to have a fair experience for everyone, and thus this rule implies to keep all things related to Varrock on here only. The management team on Varrock scans for this every other day to ensure no one is breaking this rule. If you think you are clever and attempt or do this action, you will be permanently removed from our platform.


V. In-Game Services

A. If you are buying a service from another player in exchange for Varrock GP, you are taking it upon your own risk. If you are scammed, just know that it is on you. Staff members will take action on the scammer if there is evidence to support the claim. It is heavily advised to buy services from very trusted members or staff members within our community to avoid this risk.


VI. Gambling & Scamming

A. Only use a staff as a mm when you are gambling. If you take on a gamble and lose the bet without a staff as mm, we will not make a refund.

B. Intentionally giving another player false information such as a value of an item in an attempt to benefit yourself. This will result in a return of the scammed items, and removal of equivalent wealth from the scammer's bank.


VII. Bug Abuse

A. If you have found a bug that will give you an advantage in our game such as safe spotting an in game boss, it is your duty to report the bug instead of abuse it. Failure to do so will result in either a temporary ban or permanent.

B. Skull tricking a player in an attempt to steal their items kept on death is considered a bug abuse and will result in the removal of that item from your bank and a ban.


VIII. Macroing

A. The use of a macro, an auto clicker, or a script that allows you to do an action effortlessly while AFK is strictly against our rules. All forums of macroing will be dealt with in a severe manner and will result in temporary to a permanent ban, as well as the removal of bank wealth/resetting of stats if deemed necessary.


IX. Staff Authority

A. If a staff member contacts you and tells you about a violation of a rule which is not on that list, you are expected to follow their word. They are highly trained and dedicate their time to moderate the server and the community within it.

B. You are expected to respect each and every staff member while setting aside any conflicts or differences for the good of the server.


X. Donations

A. If you choose to buy a product from our store, that product is strictly NON-REFUNDABLE! This means that you knowingly and acceptingly agree to purchase an item from our shop knowing there will be no such refund if requested.

XII. AFK Training

 If you happen to be caught afk training it will result in a jail of the account caught.

 

XIII. Reporting a staff member

If a staff member has made a decision that you feel is in some way incorrect or abusive, feel free to report it using the correct template in the correct section (redirects here). Do not make a thread about the staff member in question to call him, trash talk in discord or on the server, as this can cause minor chaos in the community. Higher ups will deal with your official report as soon as possible. You are also allowed to make said report in private message. Contact Mana to do this.

XVII. Multi-accounts

Two accounts per IP will be allowed, as long as you are not doing the same activity on those accounts. Players caught using 2 for the same activity will get a rightfully punishment.
Also if you are caught with more than 2 accounts online at the same time, you will get issued a warning for the first time.
However if you keep logging in again on several other accounts, there will be a bigger punishment to it.

Forum Rules

5 warning points = 3 days restricted from posting
10 warning points = Forums ban (12 days) 
15 warning points = Forums ban (Permanent)

Absolutely no harassment or intentional disrespect is allowed.

C. Make sure to post your thread in the correct section! This is to be followed at all times, it is very annoying to have to manually move threads just because you did not spend 30 seconds finding the right section. This will result in a penalty of 1 warning point per thread, which will get removed after a month of following the rule.

D. Use of misleading link is strictly prohibited. Links to well-known sites are alright such as Youtube. Otherwise misleading links are not allowed and can result in the removal of our forums.

B. Requesting reputation, likes, or support for your thread is not allowed. Incentivizing players will result in a permanent denial of your thread. If a player feels like leaving a comment on your behalf, that is their decision, do not try and force the issue.

C. Inappropriate forums usernames are not allowed. Similar to our rule in-game, we do not tolerate inappropriate names that contain vulgar language, hate, or anything along those lines. This will result in an immediate removal off our forums.

D. Evading bans by making a new account will result in a longer ban and a mac ban to prevent this action.

E. Staff impersonation will not be tolerated by any means. It will be dealt with harshly if a player is proven to have done so in a serious way. If you do not see a staff icon/user bar under the posters reply, then they are not a Varrock staff member.
