If you know a player is breaking the forum rules you may report the content with the report function, or you can submit a thread in this section here.

    Alternate accounts

    No user must create another account on the forums unless it is for the purpose of appealing your punishment as stated above. No player can have an "extra" or "back up" account.

    Ban alternate account, main account: Verbal warning > Week ban

    Common sense
    Finally, please make sure that you use common sense at all times whilst enjoying our platforms. If you see something that doesn't look right, please let your staff team know.
