These actions may result in bans, silences, or other punishments.

Examples are listed. But just because you don't see something here does not mean it is not included. Every single thing is not listed because the rules are so long that most people don't read it all and we cannot think of every possible problem.
  • Spamming. Examples:
    • Advertising other TF2 servers or Skial competitors.
    • Telling people to boycott Skial.
    • Reporting people that aren't breaking the rules.
    • Calling random votes, even on yourself.
    • Music is not allowed on voice chat.
  • Using or advertising hacks. This includes letting your "brother" or "friend" do it on your computer or internet connection. Advertising "fake" hacks is also not allowed.
  • Don't be annoying/toxic. If you are bothering people and making them leave, you will be muted.
  • Attempting to ruin the reputation of Skial or Skial staff. Examples:
    • Spreading false rumors.
    • Fake admin quotes.
    • Complaining about the rules.
    • Complaining about the admins.
    • Constantly saying the server is trash.
    • We do not want to silence all criticism, but due to malicious players doing these things solely to advertise competing servers, it is now up to admin discretion to mute or ban for these things. Suggestions should be on the forums rather than server chat.
  • Threatening to attack Skial or Skial staff.
  • Admin impersonation
  • Racism. Racial slurs or stereotypes are not allowed.
  • Any other discrimination based on gender or religion is not allowed based on admin discretion.
  • Exploiting. Examples:
    • Killing someone behind the gate before the game starts.
    • Bypassing the afk manager by using scripts so you are not kicked.
  • Scamming
  • Posting others private information without consent.
  • Avoiding punishment by changing your account, ip address, or any other means.
  • Griefing Examples:
    • Blocking sniper views
    • Teleporter traps
    • Dying on purpose in Zombie Escape after autoinfection ends.
  • Friendlying is not allowed on custom game mode servers except for idle and trade.
  • Votekicking people who kill friendlies is not allowed.
  • Connecting to the server with multiple idle accounts is not allowed.
  • Doing any of these on a throwaway account. Your main account will be punished.
Trade Server Rules
  • No music or recordings in voice chat.
  • No purposefully interrupting trade chat.
  • Asking for donations is considered Spam.
  • All Raffles and Events/Contests (trivia, costume, etc.) require Skial Green Shield Admins or anyone on this list to middleman: http://steamrep.com/list/M
    • In addition, raffles and events/contests must be a key value at minimum.
    • Giveaways (meaning events where there is no fee/requirement from users other than the host) do not require a middleman nor value to host.
  • Clear terms and agreements to any Wager, Raffle, Event or Contest must be posted in chat before it begins and all scores must also be posted in chat.
  • Interfering with a Wager/Event/Contest (such as partner taunting near a Spycrab) is considered Griefing
  • Profiles and Inventories must be public if trading.
  • No trading of any CD/Retail Game Keys/Codes
  • No item misrepresentation, such as:
    • Falsely claiming rarity (1-of-1, glitched, owned by celebrity, etc.)
    • Trading items renamed as other items
Spycrab Rules
  • Each player agrees in chat as follows:
    • "I agree to spycrab <opponent name> for <items>, first to <number> crabs <wins/loses>"
  • Both players hold out their disguise kits and taunt, keeping pace and making sure no one is ahead.
  • The loser must pay the winner the agreed amount immediately.
    • "Double or nothing" or similar is not allowed.
  • In the case of a tie, play continues until a player crab taunts once more than the other.
  • If no specific Spycrab rules are stated, first to three loses.

Deathrun Server Rules
  • Lying about freerun is allowed.
  • Intentionally suiciding or disconnecting as boss at the end of the round to annoy everyone else.

Rules also apply to admins
