3A. Do not hijack other player's characters (both PC and NPC). This is a strikable offence dependant on circumstances.
3B. All disputes will be mediated by the Sim Manager and a Designated Deputy, except in instances where the Sim Manager is involved, in which case a Secondary Deputy will take the place of the party involved. This group will henceforth be known as the admin team.
3C. In the event both the Sim Manager and Deputy are involved in a dispute, external mediation may be sought from OF Task Force Command Staff.
3D. Any players found to be abusive to other players can and will be subject to disciplinary action including but not limited to strikes and/or removal from the sim.

Section 4: Activity
4. Inactivity without communication for 7 days will result in a strike.
4A. Inactivity for 21 days will result in removal from the sim unless on LOA.
4B. Inactivity is defined here as not tagging or posting. Simply logging in is not activity.
4C. Minimum tagging limits are in effect. As of the most recent rule review (27/03/2023), this is set at one every four days. Preferred tagging time is 48 Hours.
4D. Regarding all above rules in section 3, they may be countermanded provided a member of the admin team, preferably the Sim Manager, is made aware that tags will not be reached in the above time frames.
4E. All above rules in section 4 do not apply in the instance of a player being on LOA or ELOA.
4F. In the event a player is inactive for a prolonged period, they may be placed onto LOA for a predetermined amount of time by the admin team. This timeframe is subject to negotiation.
Section 5: Quality Control
5. All posts must be properly checked for spelling and grammar. Failure to do so will result in the post being bounced back to saved status for revision.
5A. Repeated attempts to post the same item without proper checks, in accordance with rule 5, will result in the item's deletion.
5B. Multiple infractions of rules 5 or 5A may, subject to the admin team's discretion, result in strikes or other disciplinary measures.
Section 6: Post Counts
6. Minimum word count of 500 words per Single Post applies.
6A. In the case of Joint Posts, the minimum word count will be 500 words multiplied by the number of players in the post. For example, if four players are in a post, that is 500 words times 4 players, meaning the minimum word count for the post will be 2000 words.
6B. In regards to rule 6A, the total word count takes precedent over the word count per player. This is what will be checked.
6C. Posts will be spot checked for compliance with the rules by members of the admin team.
