Rules



First, you are probably asking why the hell a rules page is needed for a community named “The Gravity Bong”…
and with that, the rules are just in place to ensure a good, fun time for everyone to play. The admins here are as
laid back as the name suggests, and we understand that sometimes a bad day might happen, or you might do
something you shouldn’t. You might not even know any better. So aside from a couple things such as hacking, you’ll
typically be warned first before being kicked or banned for breaking a rule. If in the event you are not happy with a
punishment, you may make an appeal in the appropriate section of our forums.



Messaging an admin individually will not result in any change of the ruling, you must make a request on our forums.
All rules apply to all aspects of our community from our server, to our website, and our forums.







No Advertising / Spamming
Advertising other websites, communities, or servers is not appreciated while playing within our community. In addition, repeated chat and voice spamming as well as soliciting of our community members and admins will not be tolerated.

(Soliciting/Spamming)1st Time: Warning
(Spamming)2nd Time: Mute/gag/silence
(Spamming)3rd Time: Permanent ban



No Respawn Camping
Respawn camping is defined as setting up traps and/or staying around enemies spawns which objects them from even being able to leave their spawn. While we do understand sometimes a situation arises where you are in an enemy base and kill someone coming out of spawn, you just need to keep pushing toward the intel.

Hacks / Exploits / Scripts
Under no circumstances whatsoever is anyone permitted to use hacks within our community. In addition players using exploits not intended by the creators of TF2 will be first warned, then banned. Scripts will be analyzed on an individual basis and if an admin feels the script gives an unfair advantage, the player will be asked to turn it off. If in doubt ask yourself this: Is it giving me an advantage over a normal player?

Respecting the Community
This has a wide umbrella of topics falling under it. First, putting down the BONG tag or community in any way will not be permitted. This is our domain, and if you are expecting to walk in and do something like that, you don’t belong. In addition, we ask the complete support and backing of our admin staff. Arguing, impersonating, and/or disrespect towards an admin will be immediate grounds for banning.

1st Time: Warning
2nd Time: Kick
3rd Time: Temporary/Permanent ban



Inappropriate Sprays
Any sprays containing extremely vulgar images, including pornography (time and place for everything) will not be permitted. You will first be asked to change sprays, if in the event you choose not to, you will be banned.

2nd Time: Kick
3rd Time: Temporary/Permanent ban



Swearing and foul comments
Excessive swearing and/or vulgar comments will not be permitted within our community. If you're going to excessively make fun of a player then go else where. We all swear a little bit, as the server name implies “The Gravity Bong”, however, repeated swearing and vulgar attacks and comments that disrupt the fun aspect of the game will not be tolerated.

1st Time: Warning
2nd Time: Kick
3rd Time: Temporary/Permanent ban



Blocking the team objective of the game
Team Fortress 2 is a very team oriented game as compared to others, and we are a very team oriented community. If at any time you try to impair the team objective of the game, you will be warned then banned.

1st Time: Warning
2nd Time: Kick
3rd Time: Temporary/Permanent ban


"U Mad" Clause of 2011
The phrase "U Mad" is completely unacceptable on this server in any instance or form. You may not type "U Mad" or say "U Mad". You cannot use a spray containing the phrase "U Mad" or include it in any part of your name. Obvious attempts at variations of "U Mad" will be dealt with accordingly, e.g., "Pardon me, might you be rather agitated Sir?".

1st Time: Warning
2nd Time: Kick
3rd Time: Temporary/Permanent ban


Trading Rules
We understand trading is part of the game but have a few rules to reduce the amount of AFK players and the chat spam that trading produces. There are other servers dedicated to trading so you might seek them out and avoid the hassle. Then come back and show us your cool stuff.

Whenever possible, move your trade to Steam Chat and out of the game chat, make your trade quick and get back into the game. Please do not spam the chatbox with repeated trade requests. Idle trading players will be asked to leave the game to make room for others waiting to play and may be kicked at the administrator's discretion. Ignoring an admin's request to cease excessive trading can result in short term, long term, or permanent bans.

1st Time: Warning and/or kick from server
After that: Subject to the wrath of your administrator at the time.
