Post Game Rules
We are learning folks, so sometimes we modify rules as we encounter new, different or strange situations.

Primarily: We are an ADULT Community-that is how we were formed, that is how we play. You will hear and see types all sorts of bad things-the worst swears you've ever heard-no doubt. Almost all language excepting racist/religious remarks are allowed hear in Chat/text /TeamSpeak and recorded playable "Zounds". Use of these words between friends or in easy going trash talk is permitted and expected. Use of these words because you're an immature asshat-is not. The important thing to remember is that
WE WILL NOT CENSOR OURSELVES FOR YOUR CHILDREN!!!

Non-Modifiable Rules:
1. Maturity. This is an Adult Game Server. Immaturity, soap operas, whining and pissing off the community is a bannable offense.
2. No Personal Attacks
3. No Graphically Sexual References (Hey "YourNameHere" I'm gonna slide my #%$@#@# deep into your $%#$#$!!!)
4. No Advertising - If somewhere else is better-please be there-and not here.
5. No Team Killling
6. No Setting up Telefrags (pushing someone in a teleporter so the next thru kills them)
7. No Spamming Communications We don't want to hear your music or see rows and rows of crap on our screens.
8. No Insulting the Server or the Community. Not everyone loves everything-that's why we vote. But if you come on and constantly bad-mouth the server, we're gonna Ban you so you have a chance to find a better one.
9. No Cheating/Hacking 9.a. Added 9/15/2011 - Connecting to our server with a known hack...even accidentally will get you a minimum 3 month Ban. Be it Admin, Donor, Best Friend, Mom or noob. No questions asked-3 Months No HoC. If it happens again - Perma-Ban.
10. TeamSwitching must be kept to a MINIMUM. Switching, can cause the autobalancer to kill the last contender in a match.
11. Spectator Slots are for players to pee, get a drink etc...after 10 minutes we will boot you. If you continue to hog those slots we will ban you. Sorry folks but it sucks when you are playing to not be able to spec because someone's just sitting in there.
12. Racist/Religious Remarks We don't like them and will ban you for them.
13. No Curse Player Names The one thing we can't "hide from kids" is the user name. Keep them PG or less. Thank You.
14. No Lurking Please in Team Speak. TeamSpeak members must be active and have functional microphones.
15. Zound Spamming We know the Zounds are Great.But playing the same Zound over and over again is annoying. If you do it to the limit everytime the map changes...it's childish. see Rule #1 We can & will remove your ability to play zounds.

Rules for Minors and Family Players:
1. We cannot keep minors off the server, so we recommend players under the age of 16 disable ingame voice chat and disable zounds. Full Instructions: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1263&p=15212#p15212
2. Players under 16 are not allowed in Public Teamspeak, but we do have a passworded (available on request) Teamspeak channel for Families.
3. Players under the age of 16 (even the children of Founders) are not allowed ANY Donor's rights.
4. We cannot keep players under the age of 16 out of the Forums...but we've warned you about not censoring ourselves.

Votables (Modifiable Quarterly by the Current Donors:)
Almost all Server Settings, Mutators, Maps and Weapon Load Outs.

Non-Votables(Modifiable by Founders Only:)

1. How the "Group" is Run. Period. We honestly believe in Democracy-and promote it, but even Democracy has leaders.
2. Election to Admin/Senior Members
3. Major Server Settings (server size, anticheats, mods, Zounds, server stability & security.)
4. Any other setting - even the voted ones; if the Founders feel it is hurting the attendance and happiness of our players. Or if we see the server veering off course of the direction we originally wanted to go in.

Cheaters (Douchebags):
1. AntiTCC finding a known hack or radar gets perma-banned. Period.
2. Disconnects on screenshots - After 3 - Ban. The perp can however email Admin from outside the forums and discuss the case.
3. Tripping off security by typing known hacks (even if your not hacking) will get you banned.

Banning:
New: Due to the influx of new players as other servers shut down. The Community is getting too big for us to know everyone. So we've taken to "Ban Now, Talk Later" approach. That means simply put-we don't want to be Cops. When we get on to play-we wish to PLAY. If someone is breaking the rules, we'll ban them, and they can post their side in the forums or in an email to admin. And the admin will deal with it when they next hit the forums.

Banning happens when you don't follow the Forum Rules, the Game Rules, or if the Founders just don't like you or think you are right for the group. (Yes we have that right.)

QuickKick/QuickBan - During gaming sessions, if you're acting like an asshat, you may get kicked or even banned without warning. This is an ATTENTION GETTER. The Admin who does the ban will write a report under "Asshole Players" before going to bed that night.

(First Major Offense)
You will be banned for 1 quarter. Possibly longer or permanent depending on the The Founders. (You have to be a pretty big ass hat to get perma banned on the first ban out).

(2nd Major Offense)
End up in here for any other offense or a repeat of the same offense...don't bother-play elsewhere.

Banning Donors: - Donating to the server does not mean you can break any rules. If you donated ANYTHING to the group (be it artwork, time, labor, money or anything else), and then you get banned for breaking any game/forum/voice or other rule of House of Carpe...your donations is forfeit to the group, no returns or reimbursements. Any artwork or media created for the group by a member who is later banned can still be used by House of Carpe for as long as they like.

noooo, Bacteria was not zound spamming. However, ZG was.
