    Yes, I seen the "Basic ruleset for Deathrun" thread, but I feel that this is more of an update thing rather than making the rules itself. And this list doesn't contain any of the rules yet discussed.

    Don't get me wrong, the current rules aren't bad, but I have a few rules I'd like to suggest.

    1. No AFKing. This is a instant kick it delays the round and ruins the fun. (Reinforcing the "delay" rule.)
    2. Do not beg/ask for points and items this will be a instant mute, and if it continues you will be banned. (Someone had been spamming this in chat the other day so I thought I'd suggest it in the rules.)
    3. Any DDoS or hack threats will be taken seriously.
    4. Do not impersonate staff on the server. (Kinda obvious but you'd be surprised how often it could happen)
    5. Please keep voice chat to English. You are free to use non English in text chat. (Considering this server is in the East.)

    Just a couple of rules that I think would help reduce problems on the server.
    I'd also like to add that I think Rule #10 should be modified to saying whether or not freeruns are allowed, "free passes" kinda sounds like a one man kinda thing to me, like giving free passes to a friend only.

    Most, if not all, of these rules go without saying and I personally don't think they need to be specifically stated anywhere.

    edit: has the rules pretty much all laid out :/

    I believe most of these rules are already enforced, and are tied in with other rules.
    Especially the whole begging for points thing, if done to an extent. Then yes, it is considered spam. Considering they just want points, and have no care for the game.

    One thing I do agree with is the freepass thing, now I didn't know that a lot of people consider freepass to be a different thing then a freerun. But apparently they're two different things, we might not need to clarify it but we could for a better understanding.

    some may be different wordings for the rules, rephrasing them rather to give a better understanding, hence the title stating "Updated"

    In no way will we ever make AFKing against the rules. However, there are ways to modify the system and prevent the people in spectate mode from being put as death, I'm just waiting on @PixeL to figure out a way for me.

    It is allowed, however in excess amounts, as my moderator said, it falls underneath the protocol for spam. This is a rule that will not change.

    Threats will always be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly.

    Even though it isn't listed here, we do have a protocol to follow in event that someone does impersonate staff on the server.
    The protocol for such goes as follows: Ask player to change their name. If they refuse to change it, it will result in a kick. If they continue causing problems, it's an 8 hour ban.

    In excessive amounts, staff do consider non-English in voice chat as mic spam and it is dealt with accordingly.

    This does cause some confusion, I will admit, but I prefer the current wording. Free passes to individuals intentionally on multiple traps is against the rules, free run implies that it only counts when the entire course is free pass after free pass if that makes sense... I don't know how else to word it. Some people say it's not a free run because they did press 1 or 2 traps to get around it, which is still death avoidance as they didn't play their role the entire round. That's just my opinion though.

    In conclusion...
    The thread could use some updating to better reflect the staff members' protocol for certain situations, I agree. It was created back when Deathrun was originally started, and we have evolved a great amount since then.
