Disrespectful behaviour is not acceptable. Users are expected to conduct themselves respectfully at all times.

1.2 Discrimination

We have zero-tolerance for discrimination against any groups. Treat others how you wish to be treated yourself.

1.3 Slander

Slander will not be tolerated within the community, be prepared to back up your statements with factual evidence. If you wish to make an accusation against another user you may do so on the Ban Request section of the forums. If you wish to make an accusation regarding a member of staff please submit a complaint at support.impulse-community.com. Any attempt of backseat moderation will be seen as slanderous behaviour and instead should be reported to game moderators.

All players are expected to fully cooperate truthfully with game moderators at all times. Failure to do so may result in harsh punishment. Players are not allowed to circumvent the rules.

Not everything is listed on the rules. Use common sense, and utilize the report system (F3) to ask if you are unsure about something.
