Not all questions can be simply and hastily answered. Feel free to contact a staff member on discord or to ask another member in #general if it's a generic, non-private question.
Why did i get banned from discord? how do i appeal?
Publicly talking about tickets, hackusations, or concerns that invoke lengthy discussions (often originally provocative, negative, or inappropriate for public chat) are not encouraged in our #general chat of our Discord. Slander isn't tolerated in our chats either, and often result in a mute or ban.
You can refer to the top of each channel for appropriate content or directions concerning our Discord text channels.
Is [build exploit] allowed on this server? Check our Rules section above, screenshots/examples will be posted and more detailed information will be announced.
As of December's wipe (12/2018), we will allow all building exploits with the exception of living/building/storing loot in foundations. This exploit will still be prohibited.
Are you open to more servers?
Yes and no. We care about the mothership, Rusteros Near-Vanilla, more than anything else; however, when we have appropriate resources (staff or patreon) we may prepare for future servers. We have more than plenty of ideas from the community members over the course of our existence, and we have many ideas backpocketted for future servers. Feedback is always being gathered; however, optimization is #1.
Am I allowed to post feedback about the server and give criticisms about management?
You're always allowed to message Stannis for any reason; keeping it polite would be to your advantage. Those who answer tickets and assist others with issues very often deal with heavy toxicity - we are open to your qualms if you keep them well-thought out and kept far away from emotion and attitude.
Specifically, if you message an admin or the server owner, there should not be an issue. We would be happy to discuss your thoughts.
But wait... I was punished for commenting about the server? Are you serious?!
You were likely slandering the community, publicly defacing the community, or purposefully going out of your way to represent us in a poor light. You're welcome to be yourself - discussing private matters or specific problems with the community or tickets are welcomed if you contact a staff member. Public chat is not the place to instigate drama or incite hatred for the community.
Who are the mods?
Mozartacus, Pjosip, and other online staff members may assist you with chat issues.
If you have issues related to moderation, staff, or punishment, feel free to contact Stannis.
How do I apply to become a staff member?
You can apply to become a staff member through your behavior: be active on Discord, help new players out, and invite others to play games with you! Hang out Rusteros and we'll consider hanging around with you.
Why would I sub on Patreon, or why should I donate?
Support gives us the freedom to make any changes necessary to the server, and of course, allows us to pay our monthly server bills (game server, website, RCON service).
Patronage demonstrates dedication to the server and fuels/propels time and maintenance into the community.
All inference toward "finding singles" or dating services are merely a joke and satire. This is not to be taken seriously, and is intended as a silly joke. Copyright © 2015-2019 The Rusteros Community - All Rights Reserved
