These are a set of guidelines to help people familiarise themselves with Facepunch. They’re not an exhaustive list, but if you follow these guidelines you can’t go far wrong.
Rust Rules and Guidelines
Do not post about hackers - If you are reporting a cheater/hacker, do so using the F7 menu in-game, read this post for more details. You will be banned for a period of time if you complain about hackers here. We do not care about the sob story that you may have - WE CAN DO NOTHING.
Do not post ban appeals - You will be permanently banned from the forums. You will not have a chance to appeal. All ban appeals must go through EAC, read this post for more details. We do not care about the sob story that you may have - WE CAN DO NOTHING.
Do not post server advertisements - This is not the place to advertise a Rust Server, nor is it the place to purposely advertise anything. If you would like to promote your Rust Server then a good place to do it is in the Rust Community Discord (Please read the rules there before posting)
Do not look for teammates here - The forums are not a place to look for a group. If you are looking for teammates to play with in-game then please go to our Discord or RC Discord (Once again, the correct channels)
Respect each other - Flaming and name calling will not be tolerated. Hate speech of any kind will result in you being permanently banned.
Be mindful of others - Think about how your post will impact other users. Don’t try to wind people up on purpose.
Be constructive - If you’re critiquing something, be detailed. Expand so it is helpful.
No hostility - Don’t post in anger. If something riles you up, take a few moments to compose your thoughts before replying.
Sobriety - Posting whilst under the influence is not a good idea.
Thread Necromancy - Please don’t bump really old threads. Make a new one. Don’t post in an old thread to say that it was bumped. That’s silly.
Use the Report feature - If you see something amiss, use the report feature. Ignore the text that is already on there; that can’t be changed right now. You won’t be punished for making reports.
Warez - Don’t post links to stuff. You can discuss pirated content.
“Call Outs” - These are posts that call on a user to explain something even though they’re not involved in a thread. Please don’t make these unless your post actually contributes to the thread.
Ratings - They’re a quick way to show sentiment towards a post. Please don’t angrily post about receiving “Dumb” ratings, it makes you look stupid.
Use English - This is an English speaking forum, you should always speak in English unless directed otherwise (for example, the Swedish chat thread).
Lurk - If you’re not entirely sure what to say, don’t say anything at all! It’s recommended that you lurk for a few days before posting.
Bans are a warning - No need to get all bent out of shape if you get banned. We use these to warn you that what you’re doing is wrong. If you chat with the Moderator who banned you on Discord, they may unban you if you show understanding and remorse.
Key things to remember
Moderators Are Never Wrong™ - We are beyond criticism and are the best. Moderators have green usernames; you should do as they say.
These forums belong to Garry - They’re a privilege, not a right.
