Community Rules and Guidelines

The Planetary Annihilation community is a friendly place filled with friendly people.

We’re all just here to play the game and have fun, right?

To ensure it all remains just fun and games we’ve got a list of unacceptable content below which we reserve the right to annihilate should its presence be detected within our galactic community.

tl;dr (what to avoid)

  • Bigotry
  • Vulgar language
  • Pornography
  • Distribution of personal information
  • Harassment
  • Defamation
  • Religion and politics outside of clearly identified off-topic areas
  • Illegal activities
  • Spamming
  • Trolling
  • Advertising
  • Discussing disciplinary actions
  • Circumventing a ban
  • Impersonating a Planetary Annihilation Inc employee or community moderator
  • Using, creating or posting unauthorised, nefarious or unethical software

In summary, don’t be a jerk, be respectful to everyone and do not test the limits of what will be tolerated.

Full Rules

  1. Moderators reserve the right to remove, edit content, or act against behaviour they believe is inappropriate and against the spirit of our community.
  2. Your name, status, game names, chat messages, screenshots, artwork, videos, guides, maps, mods and any other content you create are subject to these rules.
  3. Violations of the rules can result in you being subject to a warning, deletion of content, mute, temporary ban, permanent ban, or even the loss of your account. Without warning. All violations are considered on a case-by-case basis and in light of previous offences.

Let’s be honest, you already know all the stuff below is wrong. Why not just be awesome? Fire up a lobby, play some games, have fun! We’re all mature individuals capable of mutual respect, right?

But just in case, the following content is prohibited:

Bigotry

  • Race (racism)
  • Nationality / Ethnicity (xenophobia)
  • Religion (islamophobia, antisemitism, etc.)
  • Gender (sexism, transphobia, etc.)
  • Age (ageism)
  • Sexual orientation (homophobia, etc.)
  • Disabilities (ableism)
  • And all the rest
  • Basically every “cool” insult you learned on the Internet

Vulgar language

  • Swears
  • Innuendo
  • All the “cool” insults you learned offline

Pornography

  • Hard
  • Soft
  • Tentacles
  • You know when you’re posting it, so don’t

Personal Information

Illegal drugs or activities

  • No, it doesn’t matter that it’s legal in your state

Spamming

  • Join my lobby
  • Join my lobby
  • Join my lobby
  • Posting something once is enough

Updating the count of how many players are needed in a lobby is acceptable.

Trolling

  • Doesn’t matter if it’s your friend
  • Doesn’t matter if it’s a “joke”
  • If it looks like crappy behaviour, sounds like crappy behaviour and smells like crappy behaviour then we’re going to nuke it from orbit. You might get caught in the blast.

Advertising

  • No referral links
  • No codes
  • If it’s not something that’s taking someone to a resource related to PA then it has no business here

Discussing disciplinary actions

  • Why was I banned?
  • Why was I muted?
  • Why was my text deleted?
  • Why have I been muted again?
  • Because you broke the rules. Don’t break them, learn from them instead.
  • This includes asking about action taken against others

Circumventing a ban

  • Logging into a secondary account to bypass a ban is a great way to lose your account
  • Posting information on behalf of a banned individual

Impersonating a Planetary Annihilation Inc employee, community moderator or any other person

  • Employees and moderators are clearly identified so you won’t get far with that one

Using, creating or posting unauthorised, nefarious or unethical software

  • Cheats, hacks, viruses, trojans, spyware, adware or any other type of malicious software
  • Posting unreleased content / hacking data files
