Freenode:Rules

From Werewolf Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These are the current rules for ##werewolf and other channels under the namespace. Breaking these rules may lead to a warning or being banned from the channel.

The most important rule is: use common sense. In general, ops' decisions are final – if you wish to discuss your issue in a civilized manner, you may take it to ##werewolf-ops.

Channel rules

  • Be nice to each other. No bigotry.
  • No sexual discussion or links to NSFW content.
  • Avoid excessive swearing.
  • Unauthorized bots, public logging and/or related activities are not permitted.
  • Automated messages to the channel, including but not limited to anti-idle scripts, away notifications and similar, are not allowed.
  • Refrain from manually highlighting people unless you know they won't mind.
  • Don't spam. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Spamming and/or abusing !start or other bot commands.
    • Posting text longer than 3 lines, or very long lines. Use a pastebin such as gist.github.com or dpaste.com.
    • Posting ASCII art. If you really have to, use a pastebin or link to a picture.
    • Posting garbage or other worthless messages.
    • Excessive shouting (CAPS LOCK).
    • Abusing colours.
    • Excessive nick changes.
  • Don't advertise other channels.

Gameplay rules

  • Players may not share information or be involved in gameplay-related communications after dying (including dead vengeful ghosts).
  • Do not paste gameplay-related messages that came from outside of ##werewolf (such as from a private message, safe channel, or wolf chat) during the game, except in the following circumstances:
    • Pasting messages into wolf chat is allowed.
    • Pasting the wolf list is allowed.
  • Don't make tedious hints. Hashing/encoding hints and messing with colors can be uncreative and boring. If asked to stop doing it, stop and find a more fun way of hinting.
  • Don't play with clones; only one player per actual person is allowed. Any player found to be using clones will immediately be banned from the game.
  • Don't fake gameplay messages from the bot.
  • Don't use /whois idle times.
  • Don't quit or deliberately idle out after a game has started unless you really need to leave.
  • Automatic sharing of game-related information, including but not limited to automated messages to the bot or other players, is not permitted.
  • Waiting for timeouts is discouraged.
