    Any player found using something that modifies the game and gives you an unfair advantage is against the rules and will result in a ban on the server without any warning given.

    Purchasing an Unban
    Players who have been banned temporarily or permanently from the server, and are not Network Banned, may purchase an unban from our store. This unban package may only be purchased once a year and can be purchased for any ban reason. Players who purchase this unban will have their punishment ladder for what they were banned for reset. For example, if you were banned for "Offensive Language [4th Offence]", you will start back at the 1st offence when you purchase an unban. This only applies to the type of offence and violation you were previously banned for and when you purchase the unban, and does not affect any other violation ladder.

    Keep in mind that when you purchase an unban, you're not exempt from being banned again. Be sure to read through the rules again so you do not risk your account being removed from the server.
    Your permission to buy an unban may be revoked at any time by an admin, depending on the severity of your punishment.
