6. RP in small amounts is fine, but keep it short and keep it clean.

Team Fortress 2
Spawn camping is not against the rules on all general servers due to spawn protection / multiple exits. If you think a map has too short or long a spawn protection time, let us know!
When using the report robot, the !report command, you message every online Admin. If you plan to report someone, make sure the reason is LEGIT. Crying wolf over and over will get really annoying and we will remove you for doing so.If it's a harmless accident, it's all good. We get people who do it on their friends for stupid reasons.
Porn sprays are fine, and most fetishes as well. If you don't like a spray then don't look at it.
Fetish sprays that can be seen as "disgusting" are asked to be removed, this cover things like scat.
Illegal sprays include anything illegal as dictated by the U.S. law, this is CP, Beastiality, Guro and Irl Rape.
Irl sprays are okay, but irl porn is not for legal reasons
Spraying over someone else's spray isn't against the rules. It can be seen as a dick move, but we're not going to ban anyone for it.
If you play a clip or a song, make sure it's in good quality. If the sound is too high, it'll become scratchy and is really annoying to hear. There are plenty of guides on how to do this properly.
Please switch up your material. It's generally annoying to hear the same thing over and over and over several times per match.
Be respectful of others, if you can tell everyone is playing a serious game and they're all talking with each other, that isn't the best time to play music.
Don't play over each other. I'm sure that one is really a given.
In addition, trying to predict a team's victory / failure based on the team comp is considered bad sportsmanship and we may kick for it.
Leaving the server to clear your dominations / try and switch teams with unbalance is also against the rules.
Calling out a player for their choice of weaponry is against the rules, we do not change stats or ban weapons, visit a server that does if you have a problem with a particular item.
"Friendly" players aren't allowed if you're throwing your team down a player by doing so.
Don't get discouraged if you're not doing well, and don't get upset if people offer to help. The goal is to have fun, and you can still improve while doing so.
Don't build in areas you know are owned by other people without asking for permission.
Don't steal items from players without asking, we will find you, and you will be banned.
General griefing things like setting fire to places, exploding houses, whatnot. You will be banned.
Have fun! If you were blown up by a creeper or something and you're a little on edge. No need to sweat it; just take some time to relax.
