    All About Payments

    In this thread we will discuss all about payments. Please be sure to read this BEFORE donating! DeathShrine accepts only PayPal payments and does not support any refund via any third party program, site, app or extension, hereby declaring refunding is possible only from in-game materials (points-consuming items or features) into Donation Points, and only limited to the administration team's approval. Transferring your real-world U.S Dollars to Donation Points can be done only through our official website under the "Donate" button on the website or within your account panel. DO NOT use ANY third-party apps, programs or individuals who claim they can do it for you! Always be sure you DO NOT send your payment to an email, our information is already filled and is billed with receipt! Donating means contributing money (U.S Dollars) to our server and expect nothing in return (hereby: donation). However, we decided it'll be appropriate to reward our donors with points (hereby: donation points) as a thank-you gesture. Donating helps us further develop the server and invest this money back into the server in terms of hiring new developers and staff members, improving our technology so our community will have better gameplay experience and invest into advertisement campaigns to attract more members. Doing so is ENTIRELY voluntary and is not being forced upon anyone. While it is highly appreciated, we must say this in advance: it is your choice to donate to DeathShrine.com! Donating provides a shorter way to get the better goods in-game, which are accessible 24/7 for free. No in-game item is bound to donate-only method, everything can be obtained even without donating. Choosing to donate to get a specific item or feature is only to get things done faster! Refunds are bound to the administration team and will be discussed in private, each case to its own. In order to ask for refunds, you must purchase an in-game item via the Donor Shop so it will be logged in our logs. Only then, and based upon prices at the time of donation, refund will be possible to take place. Items prices may change at all times without any warnings or notices in advance. We will try to prevent it as much as possible, but cannot commit to it! We highly appreciate your interest in donating. Do keep in mind, our rules still apply on your account, disregarding your donation. Be sure you follow the rules to not put your account at risk! Be sure you read it entirely!

    Staff Rules

    The following rules apply on staff members only. No member is part of this specific rule set and will never suffer from any punishment or warning in regards to this specific rule set that is dedicated only for staff members. There are no punishments for these rules as action will be taken as soon as the realm's Head Administrator allows it (or puts an Administrator in charge of such situations). The following rules are accepted automatically once the interview in-game has ended. You will NOT get your rank until you specifically link the address and add an "I agree to these terms" comment at the side of your message to let us screenshot it. Failure of following the rules might lead to several results, starting with 1 or 2 ranks demotion onto complete removal from the staff list and might even lead to server-exclusion and a blacklist. You have power, do NOT abuse it. Private & classified information: no staff member is to share private or classified information of any kind. As a staff member you might have access to unstable or private data that are currently not shared with the public, including an update pack (Alpha/Beta) notes or a member / staff member's username / additional account characters / email address / IP / transactions. Sharing any information that has not been approved by a Head Administrator, a Head Developer or a Community Manager is not allowed unless specified otherwise or shared with the very individual you're attempting to chat in order to verify identity. If you're unsure - ask. Content abuse & events: no staff member is to give away free items, quests, access, NPC-access, loot or any other content for no justified reason or without permission. A staff member is allowed to host events (if permitted by a Head Game Master or above) and give away an appropriate award (which is being listed in the forum - nothing else unless approved by a Supervisor and above) for the winner only. Participation or 2nd / 3rd place awards are optional as long as they are greatly reduced from the 1st winner's award (ask a Head Game Master for this). In terms of compensation or a refund, this will need to be done through a Supervisor and above in cooperation with a Community Manager to verify all the logs before taking action. Giving away items through mail is NEVER allowed for staff members. Completing quests or spawning NPCs for one-time-usage ("shortcut") is NOT allowed. NPCs aura, reset & morphs: no staff member is allowed to reset NPCs for no reason (unless a specific creature is bugged). This includes world bosses, mall NPCs, dummies etc. If you see an NPC with a visual effect on it please unaura all the creature and try to demorph to get it back to its default state. This means we have a potential miss-click by a VIP or just an abuser we need to search for. Appropriate English & speech, shortcuts & actions against members / staff members: please use appropriate English. Do not use shortcuts such as "u" instead of "you" or gr8 m8" and so on. Use full character names and not partial nicknames (character name is Instadev, being called Insta). Try to look as professional as possible. Do not swear at members or fellow staff members, you are to be mature and professional at all times. "He started" or "I'll finish this" are not valid EXCUSES. Never threat another member or staff member! Never take action against a member for no reason (hereby: abuse) unless a rule has been broken. You may go only according to what the rules say or as a Head Game Master or above instructs you to do at this given moment if not specified otherwise. If you're unsure - ask. You are NOT allowed to take action against a fellow staff member at all times, with or without approval! There are Administrators and a Head Administrator for that and they are online to do it themselves to ensure it all has been done cleanly and safely. Note: in the application you were asked how good your English is, keep that in mind. Commands: spawning random NPCs, objects or adding/removing teleport locations, disables and data is not allowed. Guild creation, VIP grant, morph or random summon/teleport commands on members for no justified reason and approval are not allowed! General GM rules: being visible in public is not allowed. If you wish to have a chat with someone, either whisper or summon to your own place. - You may ask for your own place from an Administrator and above once you've reached a Head Game Master rank. Until then, you may use GM Island or another staff member's location - if allowed. You are not allowed to ban, kick or mute someone for no valid justification, even a fellow staff member. "It was a joke", "he started", "to log out faster" and such excuses are not acceptable. DeathShrine's staff is about hierarchy. You do as you've been asked to do. If you believe there is discrimination involved or you think you are being fooled or played with, instantly turn to an Administrator or above. While no task is there, you are to execute your role appropriately, which means - at all times: answering tickets, server rules enforcement, providing assistance & help to the community as well as hosting events. The gap between each event to another will be determined by the Head Administrator. If you're not sure what your role is, check the roles definition thread. If you do not know how something is being done, ask. Do not attempt and fail if you can simply ask and a guide will be presented. If you're unsure what needs to be done at a specific situation - ask. When there is a new application, as a Game Master and above you are allowed to express your opinion based on personal interaction with the individual and upon the application itself. If you had any troublesome events with the individual please share so it will be taken into account. 7. Reporting: going away for more than a day will require you to announce in advance. If it was not planned, you can inform the Head Administrator on the go via any communication platform you two share in common or post in the proper section on the forum. After banning a member you must ALWAYS provide a proof right after banning the member in case an appeal will be made. Failing to do so will delay the appeal and once it reaches 24 hours the member will be unbanned disregarding the felony and it will come with a price. When encountering a bug you must instantly report directly to a developer or post in the bug tracker after verifying it does not exist there already. 8. Leaks: just like with testers, some staff members will have access to hidden content we are not yet ready to release. Providing any information of any sort is forbidden! 9. There will always be critiques. Important notes: Our command are being logged. GMs trades are being logged. GMs mailbox-related actions are being logged. All of those is to ensure maximum safety for a clean and safe community and for easy access in case we need to trace a problem or a misunderstanding. This data is NEVER being moderated or shared with the public and is displayed as it is for the permitted individuals (determined by a Head Developer). If proof is needed, this is a legitimate source of further actions. When banning a member you must first of all check previous bans list to ensure the following ban is according to the chain of execution as listed within the rules. Once the ban has laded, be sure to alert your fellow staff members where the proof is and be ready to handle a ban appeal by providing this proof. Failing to do so within 24 hours can lead to account's unban disregarding the offense, even advertising. If you're unable to respond, a higher ranked staff member can reply instead of you with or without your permission. As a Game Master and above you have the right to get paid with Staff Points. Each Staff Point will be equal to a different number of Vote Points and Donor Points and that amount is determined by the realm's Head Administrator. It is very dynamic and can change every second, as long as the Head Administrator wants it to change. Be sure to check the best conversion rate and be sure the listed ALTERNATIVE (non-GM) account is YOURS. No refunds are possible. There will be a fixed fee for each conversion so it might be smart to save up to a decent amount before converting. Higher ranks get higher amount of Staff Points, but the same conversion rate. It is your responsibility to always remain up to date with the latest news and updates and continuously seek for ways to improve your service and the server as a whole. While being a staff member you automatically agree to previous rules: player rules, tester rules and you agree that you have understood "All About Payments" thread to its fullest (to assist other members in case they do not).

    Player Rules

    DeathShrine's General Rules Once you create an account on DeathShrine you automatically agree to all of the rules below - failure to do so can lead into a character, account or IP suspensions. Duration may vary based on the severity of your felony. This post may not always cover all the required rules for clean and safe game-play, therefore if a staff member finds your recent act(s) problematic, they reserve the right to take action (if permitted to do so by the staff's agenda). Punishments may differ based on the damage caused (if not listed & agreed upon by the Administration team). Please note that this thread will constantly remain under time-to-time modifications, sometimes without any announcements. Checking it from time to time is highly recommended. Possible punishment that is being listed beneath the rule is by an ascending order, starting from 1st offense to the last offense by its specified order. - When a mute is being specified, it can be either world chat mute (which is a less severe punishment) or a normal mute (which is the standard punishment). - When we see (+number for further offenses) it means the previously mentioned punishment + the listed amount of additional punishment and every time this felony repeats it will be +2 the previous punishment. Global 1. DeathShrine is an English speaking server, therefore we ask you to keep other languages out of world chat and any other public communication methods that are intended for English only usage (such as General, Trade, LocalDefense and LookingForGroup). Punishment: warning, 5 minutes mute, 20 minutes mute + kick, 1 day account ban (+2 for further offenses). 2. Hacking is not accepted on DeathShrine. Hacking means using external programs or internal in-game mechanics or exploits to give you an unfair advantage over other members by any means. Punishment: 30 days account ban, permanent account ban (with an option for unban), account deletion (no restoration possible). 3. No flooding, spamming or advertising. Note: advertising = mentioning another server's name. Punishment: 5 minutes mute, 30 minutes mute, 2 days account ban (+3 for further offenses). Important note: advertising = permanent account + IP ban). Editing / deleting and creating a ticket multiple times in a short duration of time is not allowed and is being considered as spamming. Creating a new ticket with a similar or identical problem to a previously already-solved issue within a short time frame is being considered as spamming. 4. Respect other members/staff members and their preferences. Do not insult or annoy other members/staff members. Punishment: 10 minutes mute, 1 hour mute, 2 days account ban (+3 for further offenses). No racism, vulgar vocabulary abuse and humiliation. Discussing forbidden/classified topics and/or sharing illegal materials is not allowed. 5. No scamming - using another member's trust/gullibility/lack of knowledge for joke or any sort of one-sided advantage at the cost of another's belongings/data. Punishment: 10 days account ban, 60 days account ban (+120 for further offenses). 6. Do not impersonate another member/staff member. Punishment for members: 10 days account ban, 30 days account ban (+15 for further offenses). Punishment for staff members: 30 days account ban, 120 days account ban (+60 for further offenses). Impersonating a staff member is more severe and will inflict additional punishment(s). DeathShrine's staff members will NEVER ask for your login credentials, will NEVER ask for your private information (unless specifically specified in the rules that they are allowed to do so) and will ALWAYS have a <GM> tag (or a <Dev> tag for developers) and a GM chat (badge) enabled in the text field. 7. Please do not whisper staff members in-game unless you are permitted to do so. If you have a question please create a ticket. If you have anything to report, use the ticket system or the report page on the forum. Punishment: warning, 5 minutes mute, 15 minutes mute, 1 hour mute (+3 for further offenses). Asking questions in world chat is allowed but if you need personal attention please create a ticket and a staff member will contact to you as soon as possible. 8. Only you are allowed to use your account. Do not give your password to anyone and do not attempt to log into anyone else's account. Punishment: permanent account + IP ban. Using another member's accounts is NOT accepted. If a member is asking you to log into their account or give them the password for your account for any reason, say "no" and report immediately! Note: we will need a proof to initiate our handling over the situation, please be sure to provide evidence. This also means you are not allowed to access abandoned accounts either, even with their permission. 9. Found bugs must be reported on the forum or by creating a ticket in-game or using the forum's bug report form. Exploiting bugs and using them for own advantage is not allowed. Punishment: 2 days account ban, 5 days account ban, 10 days account ban (+3 for further offenses). Do not report bugs in world chat. If reported on the forum, please fill the "Report a Bug" form. 10. Members have the right to appeal the server's staff decisions on the forum by creating a support ticket. A proof is required along with a full and accurate description of the incident and an explanation for why the staff member's action was not fair or legal. Posting an appeal/complaint with false information or withholding important piece of information is not allowed and considered as a possible fraud attempt. Punishment: ignorance of the current appeal, 30 days account + IP ban (+30 for further offenses). 11. You have the right to claim refund on any items/stats/spell lost as a result of a bug or the server staff's fault. In order to get a refund you need to create a new support ticket and include all the details and circumstances accompanied by evidence (screenshot/video). Faking an evidence is strictly forbidden! Additionally, if your loss is a result of a bug, post a bug report (see #9). Punishment: 20 days account ban, 60 days account + IP ban (+30 for further offenses). 12. Being found with added spells or items is not allowed as we consider it as having an advantage over other members through CHEATING. Punishment: added spells/items removal + warning, account ban (permanent with an option for unban) until said otherwise by a Supervisor+ with a written statement of the member of how it has been achieved. The item / spell will get removed from the member. If the member refuses to have the item / spell removed (logging out in the process of removal) the character will get locked and only being unlocked after the item / spell will be removed. In addition if the member logs on another character immediately after trying to avoid item / spell removal he will be punished accordingly. 13. Having a character or guild with inappropriate names is not accepted on DeathShrine. Punishment: guild/character force rename, 5 days account ban (+3 for further offenses). The character found with such names will be flagged for a name change, if being found a second time with another name like that - will lead into character deletion. Guilds with such names will be disbanded immediately. 14. Respect other member's privacy. Don't give any information regarding other members' online information or personal life. Punishment: 20 days account ban, 60 days account ban (+30 for further offenses). 15. A staff member with a minimal rank of Supervisor is allowed to ask you for proof of your donations at random frequency. Refusing to do so will lead to extended investigation led by the same Supervisor or above. Punishment: account lock until said otherwise by a Supervisor+ OR valid donation proof has been given by the member. 16. Running around with heavy visual spells is forbidden. Avoiding casting visual spells on NPCs or members without their approval. Punishment: unaura + warning, character kick, 1 day account ban (+1 for further offenses). 17. Do not go into places that are not meant for public usage, such as GM Island or staff's private zones. Punishment: recall + warning, kick + 2nd warning, 1 day account ban (+1 for further offenses). Summoning members to these areas is forbidden. Anyone breaking the rules above may be banned from the server. VIPs and staff members are NOT excluded from following the rules. VIPs 1. Do not use VIP commands in order to flee out of combat (.tele, .summon, .appear). 2. No VIP is allowed to summon or appear to another member or staff member without permission to do so. 3. Don't use any commands to cause any member or staff member's client to crash or force a character to get stuck. 4. Using VIP commands to cheat in events is not accepted. 5. Teleportation to staff private zones is strictly forbidden, same for summoning other members or staff members in there. 6. Don't create guilds for anyone unless they gave you permission for it. 7. Don't use very large or very small morphs to your advantage during PvP. 8. Don't morph other members or staff members without their approval first. Morphing NPCs is NOT ALLOWED AT ALL! 9. No invisible or near-invisible morphs are allowed. Important note: VIPs will have their own streak system, each felony increases the count by 1. When reaching 3, the issue will be moved to a Supervisor+ and an appropriate punishment will be decided at the given moment. Note that the ability to remove your VIP entirely is bound to an Administrator+ and will take place whenever needed, based on these events. For appeal purposes, contact the administration team through a support ticket. Important notes: 1. DeathShrine holds a custom anticheat version that automatically bans all hackers for a specific duration of time as required by the system's modifiers. The ban duration are: 30 days, permanent (with an option for an unban) and an account deletion. Note that all ban appeals created in regards of hacking may be declined if the appeal is being posted along with a screenshot of the system's automated ban message (which is colored in different text colors and is impossible to fake directly in-game). By displaying the screenshot, ban appeal can be denied instantly. Once denied and you still think you should be unbanned, contact an Administrator by creating a support ticket. 2. All donations given to DeathShrine are being given willingly. DeathShrine's staff members will NEVER force anyone to pay to play. Once you have donated, you agree that the money will not return to you under any circumstances. Once the transaction has been completed, your account will hold an amount of Donor Points (the same value as the amount of US Dollars you have donated) and if, at any time, a refund will be needed - it will affect your Donor Points value. Nothing else. More information can be displayed here. 3. DeathShrine is NOT to be held responsible for ANY attempted action (or possibly fraud) made through the game/forum or third party programs in regards to player-to-player transactions, goods, services, sales or deals. Being caught doing so will result in an appropriate punishment for both sides, if information is found and enough proof has been collected. 4. DeathShrine is NOT to be held responsible for ANY attempted PC/information intrusion attempts (or successes) through possible viruses, trojans, keyloggers or any other unauthorized (not shared by DeathShrine's staff through the forum) third party program, executable file (or any extension for this matter) or websites. We do NOT recommend downloading files from a non-trust-worthy source nor do we recommend opening a malware-infected site that is possibly being sent by a member of the community or a staff member. If you suspect the site or file is corrupted or infected, don't go there (or don't download it) and report so we'll be able to quickly and safely remove it! Failing to do so will be at your own risk and DeathShrine's staff, community or Administration team is NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS! 5. DeathShrine has some built-in security systems that will function automatically. Please pay attention to what they notify you as some of them might have a built-in ban mechanic implemented. 6. DeathShrine reserves the right to require members to re-validate their email address from time to time in order to make sure no spam emails were used. This takes place at random occasions and it is meant to help us validate our records so it'll always be up to date. Failing to validate your account will result in account lock until the account is re-validated, disregarding progress of any character within this account. In case of any misunderstanding or failure to comply, feel free to contact us. This process cannot and will not be excluded from any account. 7. Multiboxing will notify all online staff members to keep an eye while PvPing. That does not mean we disallow multiboxing, we just would not like to have it abused in PvP. **This is for a test duration and is subject to change at any time. Staff members have their own additional rules, which can be found here. Testers have their own additional rules, which can be found here.

    Testers Rules

    Please be sure to read all the rules carefully. These rules are meant to help both sides, the community AND the applicants and future testers of DeathShrine. Please be sure you completely understand them and realize that once there's any sign of any rule being broken - your tester account will be terminated & you will no longer be able to apply for this position again. 1. Testers will NOT share ANY information about what they witness on any test realm. Doing so is called leaking, and we do not tolerate it. Leaking information is forbidden and will be treated with contract termination immediately, as well as possible additional main-account actions such as, but not limited to maximum of 30 days account ban. 2. Testers will treat each other with respect and will make sure to keep all things on test realm professional. Testers will co-operate with each other and will avoid fighting as much as possible. We do not wish to have an argument in our test group and ask you all to be mature and keep it professional. 3. Testers have a todo-list. Your job as a tester is to follow that list and make sure you report every aspect of it. Your personal opinion MATTERS! If you have anything to say - please do so! Do keep in mind that reporting bugs is A MUST. 4. Testers still create a new account when accepted and will enlist this account as a test account. When the test duration has ended, the account will be suspended until needed another time, which will, once again, require everyone to re-apply. If accepted for a 2nd time you will not need to create a new account, you will have your old one available, but all characters will be wiped out. 5. Testers help us test to build a better server and provide high quality content. No compensation is guaranteed! There might be rewards for testers, but they depend on the administration team. Please do not ask for rewards, it will not contribute to this cause in any way. 6. Testers still must follow all the rest of the rules (player, forum, staff rules) as they are still part of this community. 7. Testers will not share their accounts by any means. 8. Testers ARE NOT staff members! Do not feel like you must help anybody in need, you are a tester and you must, at all times, keep doing your work. You will work closely with staff members and developers, but that doesn't mean you do their job. You do your job. Impersonating a staff member (even with "permission" from a staff member) is not allowed and will lead to severe consequences. As a member of our community, you're still bound to all player rules! Failing to do so will lead to account suspension and even termination!
