Table of penalties (VALID FROM 06.11.2017)

Scale of Charges

1. General Rules

1. The Scale of Charges applies to all game elements and the website (including the Player’s profile). The punishments for game violations are always equal to the ones on the website.
2. Recidivism - if the Player gets penalized for the same violation again, the punishment is doubled, or the Player’s account will be banned permanently. Recidivism Policy applies to all points of the Scale of Charges. Third Board mute in a row for the same violation is exchanged for a 3-day ban. Punishments for further violations are always doubled. The Player who does not want to correct their behavior may have their reputation reset.
3. Penalties accumulate. The punishment will be cumulative, if it turns out that the Player violated more than one Game Rule.
4. The Support Panel’s must not be used to check other players. All reports must have evidence attached.
5. Only reports with screenshots (that meet our conditions - http://pomoc.margonem.pl/index/view,320) will be accepted.
6. Only screenshots from the Game window can be treated as an evidence. In extraordinary situations, other screens may be taken into consideration, if the Administration can verify them.
7. The Administration do not accept screens and reports older than 30 days. Cases older than 30 days are time-barred.
8. Screenshots must be attached with timestamps (in certain situations, timestamp must be visible on a screenshot). A tutorial explaining how to make a proper screenshot is available below the following link: http://pomoc.margonem.pl/index/view,320.
9. Please be advised that certain behaviors are considered crimes. For stealing an account or game items, stealing Draconites or Payment Codes, threats, publishing personal data without permission of an owner, urging to cybersex, sharing pornography, piracy, plagiarism, the Player might have legal consequences. The Service Provider is obliged to inform the Law Enforcement of any offence and disclose all required data that would help identify an offender.
10. Every punishment affects the Player’s reputation. Amount of lost reputation depends on the punishment’s duration (in case of bans it is twice bigger).
11. A complaint/report can be filled in only by the Players who have participated in the reported case, or who have been witnesses of breaking the Game Rules, or an injured party (e.g. a victim of a theft or a penalized player). Reports sent by a third party will not be accepted. It is forbidden to use other players accounts to report cases of losing access to your own.
12. A penalized player may appeal against a penalty in 30 days from getting it. In this time, the report must be registered in the Support Panel in “Bans and Appeals” section. There is no other way to appeal against a penalty.
12.1. Appeals concerning accounts without at least one 20 level character will not be accepted.
13. Punishments given by the Administration are non-negotiable.

It is a Game Master who makes a final decision about a penalty, which is based on evidence they received via the Support Panel. The Scale of Charges document is a source of information on penalties for the Player only.



2. Thefts
1. Account Theft - permanent account ban (both of the stolen account and thief’s account). If a victim of a theft retrieves their account credentials and provides the Administration with evidence that the account is theirs, the Administration may unban the account.

2. Items and Gold Theft
Game Master may ban player temporarily, or permanently in case of:
a) items/gold theft or a loan (borrowing/lending) from a stolen account, if a GM finds clear evidence of player’s guilt,
b) items/gold theft in a process of unlinking with extra charge, if a victim provides a GM with clear evidence of thief’s guilt,
c) theft during trade, or in other cases of evident fraud, if a victim provides a GM with clear evidence of thief’s guilt.

Nobody has right to demand passwords from the players. The Administration never asks the players for their passwords.

3. The Administration does not return stolen items, gold, Draconites, or refund anything. The Administration does not publish thieves’ nicknames.
4. Account ban may result in stolen items loss, and in extreme cases, removal of all legends and gold, across the punished player’s account.
5. Any form of actual extortion of gold is considered a theft, e.g. a lottery with entry fees on the chat.


A Game Master is responsible for mitigation or enhancement of a penalty.

Remember!
All transactions should be documented with screenshots. In case of points 2.b and 2.c, an attached screen must picture a whole trade agreement with its conditions.
