Paladore Site Rules

We reserve the right to change the rules at any time. Any changes we make to the rules we will announce via the news. If you do not agree with any of the rules, please do not play the site. These rules are here to protect the staff and users, so please respect them!

Welcome to our Rules Page! Unless otherwise stated, all of the following rules apply to all areas of the site. The breaking of any rule of will result in either Fines Of Rubies, Jailing or Banning of your account. Be sure to read through all the rules so you are up to date on everything in Paladore. If you have a question, or are confused about a rule and what it means, feel free to contact User Support.

When you break a rule, you may receive one of the following punishments:

Friendly Private/Public Reminder - These are merely given out to users who have broken rules as a fair reminder to follow those rules. These may be either given out privately or publicly, depending on the situation.

Private/Public Warning - Warnings are of a more serious tone when compared to a reminder. Staff will hand these out to rule breakers if we feel our rules are being ignored, purposely crossed, or if we feel otherwise necessary depending on a users behavior or actions.

Fines - Fines are more commonly handed out with warnings or solitary if a rule breaker is in need of a way to remember our rules more clearly with total respect and understanding. Fine rates may range from 500 rubies up to 10,000+, depending on the actions made by the rule breaker. These will still be given out disregarding whether or not you have that amount on your account. If you have 0, and are fined 500 rubies, you will be in the negative of -500 rubies. Each rule has a general fine rate listed below. However, this is especially at the staffs discretion.

Jail Time - Jail is the last form of punishment before being banned. A user can be jailed for either breaking a serious rule or consistently breaking rules that they have been repeatedly fined for. When a user is jailed, they cannot post in the forums, shoutbox or user profiles. They may also receive an automatic fine of 1,000+ Rubies on top of the fine for breaking the rule. Jail Time is usually dependent on the rule(s) that is broken or otherwise at the Staff member's discretion.

 Site Suspension - This punishment is a temporary ban. A user can be banned from one day up to 30 days depending on the severity of the rule broken. This form of punishment will only be used if you have served jail time and continue to break the same rule.

Full Banned - We consider this stage to be "the final straw". When a user is banned they can no longer use his or her account. A banned account will remain banned unless otherwise stated. If your account is banned, you may not make/borrow/use another account. All accounts including the initial account associated with the user will be banned. You can be banned for consistantly breaking the rules, abusing glitches and any reason the staff deem "banworthy".
