General Server Rules

1.) Do NOT expect any admin to take action without valid proof.
- It's to easy to lie on the internet whether you're trusted or not, so don't expect anything to be done without proof.
2.) Do NOT disrespect/harass/threaten/flame any players for any reason.
- Disrespecting for roleplay purposes is allowed if all players involved are aware and have no issue with it.
3.) Do NOT spam chat or microphone!
- If more than one person asks you to stop playing music or anything on HLDJ then stop.
- Voice changers are counted as spam and are not allowed at all.
4.) Do NOT be a smart ass or troll. We have a zero-tolerance policy with children.
5.) English only.
- If you joined a English server, you need to speak the language we speak.
6.) Do NOT apply other server rules to this server.
- Every single server has different rules. If you're playing here then you are to follow our rules that you agree to upon joining.
7.) Do NOT argue with an admin or player.
- Admin complaints go on the forum.
- Player complaints go in a ban report if they broke rules. If they didn't then there's no reason to complain.
8.) Do NOT advertise or mention other gaming websites/servers/communities.
9.) Do NOT tell an admin how to do their job.
- Admins will perform their job when necessary.
- If you feel the need to tell an admin how to do something then please submit an admin complaint.
10.) Do NOT impersonate an admin or any player.
- This is not allowed under any circumstance. If an admin tries to slay you, they could slay the wrong person for example.
11.) Do NOT hack/exploit.
- Hacking is clearly prohibited by all means.
- Exploiting can be recognized as doing something when it was not intended to be done that way.
- Both hacking & exploiting are permanent bans.
12.) Do NOT spray nude/pornographic/disgusting/nasty sprays or anything similar deemed as inappropriate by an admin.
13.) Do NOT evade ban or kick.
- Evasion of punishment will absolutely get you in more trouble.
14.) Do NOT mislead players with incorrect rules.
- Making up rules that are not listed on this page will get you banned.
15.) Do NOT request assistance from an admin in unnecessary situations. Only request for rule breaking.
16.) Do NOT encourage/antagonize rule breaking.
- If you're encouraging negative behaviour in our server, you will be banned.
17.) Do NOT evade the AFK kicker.
18.) DO NOT Metagame.
- Metagaming is an "out of character" action where a player's character makes use of knowledge that the player is aware of but that the character is not meant to be aware of.
- Examples: money printer sparks through a wall, gun shipment text through a wall, etc.

Is this the only place they can read the rules or can they read them ingame too? Because if this is the only place it might be hard to find them.
