Article 1: Staff

Section 1: Forum Staff

Subsection 1: Owners

Owners job is to keep the forums updated with announcements of what's going on in the in-game aspect of runescape,. They have the ability to change anything they want on the forums through the Administrative Panel, including buttons, backgrounds and players ranks. They have full control of the forums and the runescape clanchat.

Subsection 2: Forum Development

A position created by me; main aim is to update the forums and keep up to date with certain bugs and glitches which could be found in the forums and fix it through the administrative panel. The Forum Developer has full access to moderate all the threads on the forums and is able to promote/demote people if necessary. This player is able to create and edit ranks, and have full access to the forum additions. This player needs to be consulted before any big forum additions/editing is made. This player will have ability to be moderator in the chatbox also, this will allow the staff to moderate the chatbox with commands which are set out in the staff discussion section.

Subsection 3: Head Administrator/CoS

This position is simply for recommended promotions/demotions on the forums from most likely the Forum Development members. This player has full access to the Administrative Panel to make minor changes to certain aspects of the forums, and has full responsibility for the promotions and demotions key on the forum side. This player will have full responsibility in also overlooking the staff, and helping all the staff if needed. Staff reports are sent to this player on the forums. These players will have ability to be moderator in the chatbox also, this will allow the staff to moderate the chatbox with commands which are set out in the staff discussion section.

Subsection 4: Administrators

This player has full ability to moderate all the threads on the forums, and overlooks the Server Supports and the Forum Moderators. These players will have full access to the Administrative Panel to make simple changes to the forum (this could change in the future). Their main job is to overlook the moderators and server support, and to aid them if they need help at any time. This player can lock, move, merge etc on all threads on the forums. Administrators will have ability to be moderator in the chatbox also, this will allow the staff to moderate the chatbox with commands which are set out in the staff discussion section.

Subsection 5: Moderators

This player has full ability to moderate all the threads on the forums, and their main job is to infract players. They can lock, move, merge etc every post on the forums, and they look after the server supports on the forums themselves. Their main job is to moderate the entire forums, and sent reports to administrators+ once a player has hit three infractions on the forums. Every staff from here will have ability to be moderator in the chatbox also, this will allow the staff to moderate the chatbox with commands which are set out in the staff discussion section.

Subsection 6: Server Support

This player has limited access to moderate threads, and can moderate threads in the General Discussion, Server Discussion, Tech Support, Suggestions, Goals and Achievements and the off-topic sections. This players main objective is to moderate these threads and infract, move and lock threads if necessary, they must sent a report to administrators+ when a player has hit three infractions. These players will have ability to be moderator in the chatbox also, this will allow the staff to moderate the chatbox with commands which are set out in the staff discussion section.



Section 3: Staff behavior

Behave in a polite way. All staff must comply with the rules as well! If not, regular players have the right
to report you (if they have proof of this) without getting punished.


Section 4: Procedures

Subsection 2: Forum Procedures

The procedure for dealing with a rule violation on the forums is as follows:
1. Verbal Warning.
2. Second Verbal warning and an infraction if necessary (depending on the seriousness of the offence).
3. First or Second Infraction, depending on situation after Step 2.

From here, infractions will be given until three infractions are given, then in the situation reports, post the reasoning behind each infraction, and wait until an administrator of the forums can ban the player for a specified amount of time.


Section 5: Staff Abuse

Any staff that abuses their power in a method that is harmful to normal players/other staff shall be dealt with in the following manner:
1. Verbal Warning and Reprimand
2. Another Verbal Warning.
3. Suspension of Powers (not often used).
4. Demotion
5. ::ban



Article 4: General Rules and Info


Section 1: Ingame Chat and Forum

The rules for the Ingame Chat and Forum are as follows:

1. Keep Spamming to a minimum and don't post ENTIRELY off-topic. If anybody spams multiple times, then a warning should be given.
Spam on the forums is making posts containing only some small word(s) or posting completely off-topic.
This is either to gain post count or to troll. Some examples:
- People posting "bump" to bump own threads.
- Completely posting off-topic.
- Posting nonsense such as "auipfbapifbrfapb-lol".
Spamming is only allowed in the Off-Topic section of the forum, nowhere else!

2. Do not advertise the buy or sale of any real world good.
This includes everything related to real life money.

3. Do not advertise for buy or sale Runescape Accounts/Runescape items/Runescape cash.

4. Respect the Staff

5. Do not ask for real world information from any player you do not know in the real world.

6. Please keep arguing (flaming) to a minimum, this also includes trolling.

7. 3zealsftw does not tolerate spamming of advertisements anywhere within 3zf-community.
You cannot advertise the following:
* A fellow website, or another community.
* A Youtube channel.
* Servers, or any other game.
* Fansites (Unless it's 3ZF approved, Also must be affiliated.)
If caught spamming or advertising the above, without a warrant, a moderator will ban you, or ask you questions
and either ipmute or punish you in any other way. Depends on the situation.

8. Signatures should not take up more than 1 screen. Don't overflow our forum with useless pictures!

9. Putting chats, such as xat chats, in your signature is not allowed either. The loading of these chats
causes players visiting the threads you've posted in to lag. This is also a form of advertising since xat isn't affliated with us.

10. Nude pictures or any other explicit material as avatar/profile picture/signature isn't tolerated either.
Posting them is obviously against the rules as well. For party Pete's sake, we have children playing this game.

11. Impersonating a staff member will resolve in an instant ban/ipban.


12. Threatening to shut down the forum resolves into an immediate ipban.

13. Please keep swearing to a minimum, no excessive swearing allowed otherwise action will be taken. Also please don't direct swearing towards people. We don't mind swearing, we just don't want to look at it all the time.


Section 2: Common Courtesy

Please behave in a civil manner. Do not make fun of people if they have trouble with English or the game in general.


Article 3:

Section 2: Identity

In 3zealsftw, we should not reveal our identity.
For there are undetected pedophiles that use your identity, or image as a lead.
Do not ever post the following into your signatures or anywhere else on the forums.

* Facebook, Myspace, E.t.c.
* A picture of your address/house.
* Your address (Even if they're in a different country, which isn't always true)

We will never ask for your full name, or family member's as well.
If asked these kind of 'privacy' questions, please inform us right away! (For your own safety)

Section 3: Account security

Your Website Account is safe with us.
Our trusted Developers will never access your account
unless necessary & requested.


Please, do not break any of these rules, else we'll have to make punishments.
