Explanations
Account Clarifications:
  1. You may NOT buy or sell an account EVER.
  2. Account-sharing is NOT allowed under any circumstances. This includes having friends/siblings/others do specific tasks for you on your account such as SWAT tests, score grinding, DM fights, transferring money/assets, etc. Players found account sharing can expect permanent account bans for all accounts involved.
  3. When an account is banned, you may not log in to the server at any time until your ban has expired. This includes joining the server under a new name or IP. Anyone on the same network as the banned player may also be restricted from playing until the ban has expired. Do NOT ban evade to talk to an admin in-game about your ban. Players who ban evade to talk to an admin in-game about their ban will still be treated as ban evaders and your ban will be increased. Instead, create a ban appeal on forums.
  4. Multi-accounting is allowed. However, constantly creating new accounts may lead to a ban for account spamming. If an administrator has warned you about creating too many accounts and you still continue to do so, you may be issued with a temporary or permanent ban.

    If you plan on creating another account, you are NOT allowed to transfer assets (such as vehicles, clothing, etc) or money to your main account without direct permission from a lead administrator.
Common courtesy:
  1. If you continuously harass a player through PM, main chat or any other source of messaging, and they or an Administrator have told you to stop, you may be punished for insulting, abusing or harassing that player.
  2. If you continuously mention a rulebreaker through main chat, you may be punished for disrupting administration as this often makes a rulebreaker stop his actions and therefore evade punishment.
  3. If you reveal the identity of an Administrator to another player, you are breaking the Common Courtesy rule. You are breaching the anonymity of Administration and thus allowing rulebreakers and cheaters to avoid breaking rules whilst the mentioned Administrator is online. This heavily impacts on the performance of Administration and our ability to catch these rulebreakers.
  4. Constantly complaining about being arrested/killed by law enforcement is NOT allowed.
  5. You cannot use an in-game name that is deemed inappropriate (e.g. any names that include any type of hacks, racism, curse words, etc). Accounts can and will be locked if the name used is deemed inappropriate by an admin, regardless of time spent on the account.
  6. Joking about breaking any of the rules may lead to a punishment as well.
  7. You may not beg admins for privileges (money, houses, any form of asset, etc).
  8. Do not ask administration privately ANYWHERE about yours or your friend’s ban appeals. All ban appeals will only be dealt with on the forums.

    General offenders may receive a slight punishment, however, continuing to break the rules despite warnings will lead to a ban.

    Eg.
    - "Is Threshold an admin?"
    - "Yes"
    This is an example of something that would not be allowed.
List of reasons where you can kill somebody or place a hit on them:
  1. There is a hit on them (kill only).
  2. They stuck you up.
  3. They attempted/successfully robbed you (businesses, houses, wallets).
  4. They attempted/successfully raped you.
  5. They successfully kidnapped you.
  6. They constantly ram you.
  7. They caused you to somehow lose money (making you fail your robbery by popping your tyres, pulling you out of your getaway vehicle etc).
  8. You may kill other hitmen in an attempt to gain the hit (if a hitman gets killed by another hitman in a chase they must not pursue revenge on that player!)
  9. You may kill LEO in a shootout, you may not kill medics or firefighters in shootouts.
  10. If the player CURRENTLY has the bonus vehicle, and as long as you are trying to sell the bonus vehicle as well. If you have the bonus vehicle, you can’t shoot unless it’s self defense e.g. you getting shot by players while driving the BV to the crane. Only if you’re shot at. If you’re getting lag pit/rammed, that’s all on you to avoid.
  11. You are allowed to kill cops as a civilian if they are chasing a friend of yours who is a warrant. The cop must be relatively close to the warrant or interacting with the warrant and is definitely chasing them, not just driving past.
List of reasons where you can NOT kill somebody, but you can place a hit on them:
  • Stalking, as in they are following and chasing you and/or blocking your path of access.
  • They are stealing your plants.
List of reasons where you can NOT kill somebody or place a hit on them:
  1. They arrested / took down / ticketed / searched / healed / cured you or committed any form of game law enforcement action on you.
  2. You got killed in Los Santos or inside the deathmatch arena.
  3. You may NOT place a hit on a player for deathmatching you whilst either of you are in jail.
  4. If they killed you for a valid reason you may not pursue an attempt to kill them in return. It is OVER.
  5. If the hit placed is cancelled because of the player surviving it, you may not kill/re-hit the player.
  6. Joining your group robbery when you don't want them to.. Instead, change your robbing team state!
  7. Timeout / crashes are NOT valid reasons for hit contracts.
  8. They are an admin on duty.
[*]Breaking a rule, such as random deathmatching. Random deathmatching includes shooting, ramming, heliblading and spraying with the water cannon. Please remember that collateral damage may happen, one bullet accidentally hitting you is not random deathmatching.

Other:
  • If someone randomly kills you without a valid reason (in this thread or maybe some other reason deemed valid by an administrator), screenshot it and make a complaint thread in the Court of Justice on forums.
  • You may not kill a player for any reason that happened over 15 minutes ago.
  • Randomly or forcefully ramming / pitting players without a reason more than once (on purpose) is considered as random deathmatching.
  • When placing a hit on someone, it must be in English. Any hit contract that is not in English, will be cancelled by an admin
  • When re-placing a hit, you must include the original hit reason. Counter-hits are not allowed.
  • If you cancel a hit, you may not place the same hit again after 5 minutes. Once a hit is cancelled for 5 minutes, it is considered completely cancelled and cannot be re-placed.
  • Collateral damage can happen. This is not NOT Random Deathmatching. Examples are car bombs and stray bullets.
NB: These rules must only apply to civilian-civilian interaction.

Revenging:
  • Revenging a player is only allowed for 15 minutes after an action has been committed on you.
  • A revenge can only be committed in the form of a hit or kill. You must choose only ONE.
  • The server now uses your last crimes to check if a player is validly attacking you. The server also uses the damage log to detect this.
  • If the server deems the kill as an unfair death. You may report that player, if not. Do not report.
Law Enforcement working with civilians:
  1. Law Enforcement should NEVER work with civilians. Working with civilians entails 'having a civilian help you chase, shoot or provoke a warrant' and 'having a civilian purposely achieve a wanted level for your own benefit'.

    Constantly accepting bribes from a player, or multiple players, is considered working with civilians.

    Accepting a bribe from a player with the intent of removing their wanted level to allow them to achieve something (finish a robbery) without interruption is considered working with civilians.

    Failure to follow these guidelines of the /bribe command is considered as Command Abuse.
  2. SWAT Members should only place roadblocks for the purpose of blocking a warrant's (wanted level 4 or above) path of escape using the roadblock as a cover... They may be placed against warrants who are on-foot or in a vehicle as a passenger or driver.

    Roadblocks are never allowed to be placed against ticketable players under any circumstances.

    Roadblocks should not be used as a means of accessing areas that are inaccessible otherwise. This includes using roadblocks as a ramp, bridge or steps.

    Roadblocks should be immediately removed after they either succeed or fail. Roadblocks that fail to be removed after a warrant is arrested or escapes, or after the placing SWAT member dies, will be removed by an Administrator and punishments may follow.

    If a roadblock is placed inside another player's car or a player is trapped inside a placed roadblock, the roadblock must be immediately removed before attempting to arrest, cuff or takedown any warrants.

    Failure to follow any of these roadblock guidelines is considered Command Abuse. These rules also, where applicable, apply to spike strips as well.
Tax Evasion:

Tax Evasion is avoiding tax in any way, e.g using multiple accounts to avoid tax payments.


Possible Punishments
  • Permanent warnings on your account.
  • Timed / Permanent mutes.
  • Jail Time depending on severity of the rulebreak.
  • X hours - 2 week ban - permanent ban depending on severity of the rulebreak (Game Ban).
  • Forum bans, especially if you disobey the common courtesy rule.
  • MONEY EXPLOITING/ABUSING using BUGS will possibly result in a money reset and possible removal of assets on the player and even disabling of the account.
  • Please note that punishments are likely to drastically increase if you are caught breaking the rules often.
