Report a Player | Report a Staff Member | Report a Bug | Appeals

All punishments are final, until appealed

You are allowed to play another account while you wait out your punishment on your main account. If you continue similar behavior on your alternate account, this is what we call Punishment Evasion. Your ban from your main account will follow on your alternate account and increase on both accounts to the next offense tier available.

 1. Player Harassment and Inappropriate Language/Content

We have zero tolerance for the act of harassment towards another player as well as the use of disrespectful language in regards to one's personal beliefs/religion, race, sexual preference, etc. 

Discussion of inappropriate content via any chat avenue, per discretion of staff, will not be tolerated. 

First Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: 72H Mute | 3rd Offense: 1W Mute | 4th Offense: Perm. Mute

 

2. Advertising/Active Server Discussion

Advertisement of RSPS related content, rather it be a video or direct request to join another server, will NOT be tolerated. Discussing other active servers is strictly forbidden. Basic discussion/promotion of another server would be Minor, as advertising and requesting players to leave and play another server is Major.  

  • Members wanting to advertise another link/service outside of RSPS related material can send the link with additional information to an administrator and await approval.
  • Advertising Content creators must be in a 30 minute interval for advertising over yell, Clan chat, or using an auto typer.
  • Advertising a Clan, or CC must be in a 30 minute interval for advertising over yell, Clan chat, or using an auto typer. 

Minor 1st Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: Perm Mute

 Major Offense: Perm. Ban

 

3. Spamming

Any form of spam will not be tolerated. Please use the in-game auto chat feature if you wish to auto chat. This allows for other players to toggle the auto chat if they do not wish to see it. Depending on the severity, you may/may not be warned before the punishment.

1st Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: 72H Mute | 3rd Offense: 1W Mute | 4th Offense: Perm. Mute

 

4. Threats

Any type of threats endangering one's life, security, or reputation will NOT be tolerated. We want all of our players to feel welcome and safe here, do not go against that integrity.

Minor Offense: Perm. Ban | Major Offense: IP Ban

 

5. Encouraging Others to Break Rules

No member of our community shall ever be encouraging others to break rules. Regardless if the other party is aware of said rule, action will be taken for those who do so. Punishment CAN be escalated to 3rd Offense/Perm. Ban depending on the rule at hand.

1st Offense: 48H Mute | 2nd Offense: 1W Mute | 3rd Offense: Perm. Mute

 

6. Rules within the Zenyte/Help CC

The Zenyte/Help CC is designed to provide help to any player for various things. As we do not mind general discussion, we do ask that you keep it civil and within these few guidelines.

  • Trolling and excessive banter will NOT be tolerated. 
  • Do not advertise other CC’s in the Zenyte/Help CC.
  • No ranting about punishments or accusing others of rule breaking, we have forums to report players/appeal if needed.
  • Please do not give misleading/false information when help is requested.
  • Please keep buying, selling, and general talk out of the help CC if there is an influx in help related questions. (This allows us to monitor the CC more efficiently and ensure no questions go without an answer)
  • Aqp's will result in an automatic kick
    Drug/sex/politics/violence  talk will be warned and further kicked 

1st Offense: Kick from CC | 2nd Offense: Ban from CC 

 

7. Backseat Moderation

Backseat moderation always proves to cause issues. While we appreciate the help with informing others of rules, staff members are given their role(s) for a reason. They are equipped with the experience we see fit to diffuse situations and handle the community accordingly. If a player continuously attempts to insert themselves in the middle of any Moderation duties, they will be punished. If you ever feel a staff member is not performing correctly, you are always welcome to Report a Staff Member.

1st Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: 48H Mute | 3rd Offense: 72H Mute | 4th Offense: Perm. Mute

8. Clan Etiquette 

Clans are a great way to play with friends, and make new relationships, but it's important to note that invading clans, or bashing them will not be tolerated. The list below is a few examples of things that you may be punished for if seen/reported.

  • Joining another Clan/CC for intent of advertising your/someones Clan.
  • Taking Clan issues out of the CC, and bringing them into Public Chat, yell, Zenyte CC, etc.
  • Any type of Clan on Clan public drama is not tolerated.
  • Advertising a Clan, or CC must be in a 30 minute interval for advertising over yell, Clan chat, or using an auto typer. 
  • Joining any type of CC via an alternative account with the sole agenda of becoming a disruption or annoyance will no longer be tolerated. Any accounts that are caught doing so will be punished accordingly on both ends, thus meaning alternative accounts that relate to a main account will now be qualified to receive a punishment.

1st Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: 48H Mute | 3rd Offense: 72H Mute | 4th Offense: Perm. Mute

1. Third Party Software

Any software that is used to allow the member to have an unfair advantage in any way will result in punishment. We want to create a fair environment where all players have an equal chance of all of our features. Software includes automation tools, macros, bots, and auto-clickers. This includes the development of scripts for said bots.

  • Macro Farms (3+ accounts macroing at same time) will result in an automatic IP Ban for all accounts involved. 
  • We reserve the right to reset your stats if we deem it appropriate.
  • Anyone found creating/using/distributing macros will be IP banned. 

1st Offense: 72H Ban [Skill Reset To Level 1] | 2nd Offense: Perm. Ban  | 3rd Offense: IP Ban

 

2. Real World Trading/Account Selling

The act of trading Zenyte currency, items, services, etc for outside currency is NOT allowed. This includes but is not limited to; RSGP, fiat currencies, IRL goods/services, online currencies, etc. Both parties will be punished if found to be doing so. 

  • The act of trading/selling, or the attempt of trading/selling, any account for other goods will not be allowed on the server or forums, a ban will be issued for the account being traded off.
  • As per Old School Runescape, Zenyte has decided to follow route & enforce the rule of Infernal cape services. Inferno was dubbed the greatest solo PVM challenge to date upon release, therefore we believe it provides an unfair advantage to others if such services are considered as appropriate. Moving forward, any acts or attempts to having a user complete the Inferno caves on your own personal account, will result in an permanent ban for both parties involved and an instant removal of the Infernal cape. On that note, we respect the boundaries of account sharing and will not be punishing accounts who have achieved Infernal capes that are shared between two individuals. In cases of account sharing, both users have generally put in time and effort into the account and it's not fair to restrict those accounts from a major piece of in-game content. We have tools to investigate accounts who have completed the Inferno, and will punish accordingly if we suspect that the account in question was in fact not being shared.

1st Offense: Perm. Ban | 2nd Offense: IP Ban

 

3. Bug Abuse

Players must not use or attempt to use any bugs or glitches which they may find in our game/website.  Any exploits a player finds is requested to be immediately reported to us through the report a bug page or via Discord.  

1st Offense: 1W Ban + Account Wipe | 2nd Offense: Perm. Ban | 3rd Offense: IP Ban

 

4. Hacking

The act of obtaining and/or using another member’s account information for any reason is strictly forbidden. This includes but is not limited to; obtaining passwords from old DB’s, Brute Forcing, Social Engineering information, RATing, etc. If you are found to be guilty of such acts, you will be removed from our community IMMEDIATELY.

1st Offense: Account & IP Ban

 

5. False Reports

False reports are not tolerated, this includes using the CC/Yell, as well as in-game to spread drama that may or may not be true.
I.E User1 is scamming! Don't trade him if you don't want to lose money!

These reports should be sent to a Server Support or higher.

1st Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: 48H Mute 3rd Offense: Perm. Mute 

 

6. Scamming

Changing items/amounts of GP in trades or changing duel arena rules is NOT punishable, there are second trade/duel interfaces to avoid scams like this from taking place. Scamming item loans, trust trades, gambles, or any other scam that can be proven WILL be punished.

  • Video evidence MUST be provided, screenshots will not suffice.
  • Please keep in mind dice bags are untradable, so you will be jeopardizing your account along with your ability to host if you scam while gambling.
  • We do not offer refunds for items/gp that was lost due to a scam

1st Offense: Perm. Ban  | 2nd Offense: IP Ban

 

7. DoXing/Information Leak

1st Offense: Perm. Ban | 2nd Offense: IP Ban

 

9. Player vs. Player Guidelines

We are NOT held responsible for members who have lost, disconnected, etc.  while being located within the wilderness. Entering the wilderness is at people's own risk, however, we have a few rules to keep things fair:

  • Luring is a big part of Runescape/RSPS in itself, and as most places, it is not punishable. You will however be punished if you lure over yell/help CC or attempt to lure a staff member by requesting help or asking for assistance in any manner. 

1st Offense: 24H Mute | 2nd Offense: 72H Mute | 3rd Offense: Perm. Mute
 

Ragging, or "1-iteming" is a PVP tactic that is used even in OSRS. However, the consistency of a player 1-iteming with the intent to be an annoyance to another player is against the rules.

  • Attacking a player in the wilderness whilst risking little to nothing and having no intent of actually killing the target is considered as ragging. As the intent cannot directly be measured, it is up to the staff members to decide whether or not a specific scenario falls under ragging or not. The rule is fairly obvious when it comes to intent, if you're in NH gear, or actually risking something upon death, you're perfectly allowed to repetitively kill a specific player. If you're wielding a crystal bow, the odds of you killing your target are rather low and you'd be classified as a ragger.
  • Attacking NPCs around the game with the intent of only blocking someone else from completing their assignment, while having no benefit of your own in doing so. This basically means attacking the NPCs that a player is thieving with the intent of stopping them from thieving, whilst giving you no gain whatsoever. This does not mean that attacking a monster where you're actually trying to get the loot is against the rules - it is not. The intent in this rule is subjective as well, and decided by the staff members.

This is counted as harassment. Video evidence MUST be provided to the Staff Team when making a report.


First Offense: 24H Ban | 2nd Offense: 72H Ban | 3rd Offense: Perm Ban
 

10. Invading Other Communities

Invading other communities is without question a permanent ban from the forums and server, we do not tolerate this and want to remain peaceful throughout the RSPS community. Such things are a sign of desperation and there's not going to be a time where the Zenyte team will stoop to that level of "stealing" other members. it's unacceptable and will be dealt with harshly.

1st Offense: IP Ban

 

9f5c207ea8.png

 

As we still expect you to abide by Server Rules on the Discord and forums, we have but a few additional Discord/Forum guidelines.

 

1. System Security, Penetration Testing, and Exploiting

Attempting to exploit and penetrate the security measures of Zenyte's software, hardware, or any other devices used by our users or operations of the overall system will be punished.

  • Zenyte security is handled by Noele, Zenyte Management takes the website and our player's security extremely seriously. Therefore, any attempt to breach Zenyte or the players of Zenyte's security will not be taken lightly. If any exploits are found, please submit them to Noele.

Additional information:

As of lately, Zenyte's staff-team continues to retain an preposterous amount of in-game reports regarding public & non-public CC drama. Recently players of Zenyte have taken it upon themselves to register and create what staff members like to consider as "throw away" accounts (AKA alternative accounts) in hopes of starting unnecessary drama in the eyes of the public. Moving forward we hope with the implementation of the following rule; To squash any potential drama or furthermore to protect the goodwill and integrity of Zenyte's clans/clan chats.
