NAK Server Rules

Server Rules
Last updated August 23, 2017.
NOTE: All rules have definitions to help reduce arguments. The level of punishment is at the discretion of the Admin, and will be based on the severity of the action. If you break multiple rules your punishment may run consecutively.  Punishment enforced on the Arma servers may carry over to all NAK servers, including TeamSpeak. Continued violation of any rules may be met with a permanent ban. If you feel a rule has an unfair/unclear/incorrect definition, pleased contact Vile Ace.

 

***IMPORTANT***
If you feel you were wrongly warned/kicked/banned, do not argue in game. Arguing with an admin in game WILL result in a 24 hour ban. If you or a friend wishes to dispute an action taken by an admin you have 2 options. In our forums you will find links to “User-Admin Abuse Reports” as well as a “Ban Appeals” section. If you need help or do not understand how to use these, please join TeamSpeak and an admin will help you.

We are a mature gaming community and the content of our games and our social interactions may not be suitable for younger age groups. For that reason we have a minimum age requirement for members of our community, which is 16. As we have no way of confirming an individual’s age, if an Admin believes that you are underage you may be asked to leave the server. Beyond this it is a parents responsibility to police their children. If for whatever reason they slip into our community unnoticed, we hold no responsibility for their safety or well-being.

Please watch your language. This is a public server. We understand that we play an age restricted game, but we choose not to hear this type of language in our community. If you tend to curse, mute yourself, and refrain from typing in-game chat.

This page does not cover all the rules; only the basic ones. If an Admin finds any inappropriate behavior he will moderate it accordingly.
