You must be respectful to all users, regardless of your liking towards them or your opinion of their gameplay. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Do not call people out in a slanderous manner in community chats if you have an issue with them. Please handle your business like an adult and use #reporting-players or send a DM to a @Moderator.
No inappropriate language
The use of any derogatory language towards any users is prohibited. Do not use profanity or harsh language to berate or insult another player. Repeatedly doing either of these actions may result in disciplinary action.
No offensive names and profile pictures
You will be asked to change your name or picture if the staff deems them inappropriate.
Don't spam roles while looking for a game
Please be mindful of your tagging and do not use them excessively - nobody likes to get 20 notifications in 5 minutes. Deleting a tag and reusing it is not a sneaky way of getting around this. Be patient and wait at least 5-10 minutes before pinging everyone again.
Do not send a lot of small messages right after each other. Do not disrupt chat by spamming.
No pornographic/adult/other NSFW material
This is a community server and not meant to share this kind of material. Doing so will result in disciplinary action.
Use the appropriate channel in the correct way
Use the appropriate channel in the correct way and if you do not know, feel free to ask in #join-log ! You are allowed to use an empty voice channel for anything Catan related even if it does not match the description. The Hang out voice channel and #off-topic-chat are great places to go to bond with the community in a non-catan manner.
Direct & indirect threats
Threats to other users of DDoS, death, DoX, abuse and other malicious threats are absolutely prohibited and not allowed to occur. Doing so will result in an immediate ban.
Joining a voice channel
You may join a voice channel with people in it. However, please ask nicely if it is ok. They might be playing a game and do not wish to be disturbed. If you are asked to leave a voice channel do so promptly. If you have someone that you have asked to leave and they do not or if you do not want to confront them please DM @CC Team.
Bot-trading is neither ok in tournaments nor in Match Finder games. Please remind people of this if someone disconnects in your game or bot-trades without realising. If you think someone has done this intentionally with malice please use #reporting-players so that our @Moderator team can deal with it.
Kingmaking is not only a big no-no in tournaments but also in “Match Finder” games. In the case of someone throwing the game in favor for any of the other participants to win please notify any @Host during the tournament or use #reporting-players for match finder games. This is for serious offences such as trading 5 resources for 1 to a player or any other kingmaking trade. In a tournament game this might result in the 2 parties being set to 0 for that game and another will get the win and in Match Finder games, the game will be voided. If you think someone has done this intentionally and with malice please use #reporting-players so that our Moderation Team can deal with it.
No one is allowed to use bots or AI methods for any kind of cheating (ex: Cards Tracking...)
Community streamers & voice chat
Are you a streamer and are streaming community games? We would love to support you! We have set a special role and a special channel for streamers, where you can post all your catan related content. So, if you are streaming, or are planning to stream, community games (tournaments or matchmaking) on a regular basis contact any member of the CC Team, so we can either give you the role or advertise your stream!
Please note that your streams must follow the 📝server-rules!
Streamers must alert all players that they are streaming. If players wish to not have their voice recorded on stream then they can opt out of talking but the streamer may still use VC in their stream. Streamers may also create games and can enforce a rule, "If you join you agree to your voice being streamed" as long as they add this to their advertisement of the game.
If a player doesn't want to have their voice recorded then the community comes first and the streamer shall not stream VC but may continue to use it off stream. They may still record the game play.
The Moderation Team
The Moderation Team will give out warnings and disciplinary actions per their discretion. The team takes note of all reported cases and behaviour to see if any patterns emerge. Therefore, any such pattern that separately, in itself, does not break any rules may result in actions after many repeated offences. If you feel mistreated please utilize the #reporting-players to get in touch with the Moderation Team.
