1. Inappropriate language or behavior is not allowed.
This includes (but is not limited to): sexually explicit language, solicitation, racism or other prejudice, threatening behavior, blackmail excessive swearing and spamming. (Honestly just use Private Messages if you really must use vulgar language, other offences still apply however.)
2. Advertising other websites is not allowed.
Any link has the potential to be misleading and cause a player to either compromise the security of their account, computer or their personal safety. For this reason, players may not post links of this nature including here & our official Discord.
3. Scamming and Luring is not allowed.
Misleading other players for your own personal gain is not in the spirit of fair play.
An 'item scam' is an attempt to obtain GP and/or items from another player by dishonest means.
A attempt at a "Lure" is against our rules even if it is not successful.
4. Real-world trading (RWT) is not allowed.
Real-world trading is the term used for activities which occur outside of the game environment which result in the real-world sale or purchase of items. This includes selling Vitality GP for OSRS gp.
5. Buying and selling accounts is not allowed.
Players may not sell their account to anyone else. Players should not accept an account that anybody else offers, as they may be stolen, and this could lead to your own account being disabled!
Account sharing is ALLOWED, however, at your own risk. Meaning if anything happens to the account (items taken off/password changed) we cannot help you with that.
6. Knowingly exploiting or sharing a bug is not allowed.
If you find a bug, then report it to us immediately and do not divulge the nature of the issue to any other players. Players won't be penalized for experiencing a bug unless they use it to their advantage or advertise the nature of the issue to other players.
This includes using animations to stall your character to visually appear outside of wilderness. If you are caught doing this you will be jailed.
7. Encouraging others to break rules is not allowed.
Encouraging or helping others to break the rules is as bad as breaking them yourself, and therefore anyone doing so will be treated as if they were the one breaking the rule.
8. "Macroing" and third-party software is not allowed.
Many third party software websites and applications contain key loggers, trojans and viruses which will put players' personal details at risk. Macroing also gives some players an unfair advantage and can detract from the experience of Vitality. We designed this game to be enjoyed by humans- not robots!
Same rules apply for Multi-Boxing on alt accounts (NOT ALLOWED.)
9. Vitality staff impersonation is not allowed.
We have this rule in place so our players can identify members of Vitality staff, thus ensuring that players can trust members of our staff for help and support with any game related problems they may have.
10. Asking for and providing contact information is not allowed.
We have this rule in place to protect player privacy and ensure a safe in game environment. Giving out personal details may affect the security of a player's account as well as a player's own personal safety. When interacting with others online, it is common sense to never divulge personal information, both for players' personal safety as well as account safety.
11. Multilogging in PvP is not allowed.
You are not allowed to PVP on multiple accounts at a time. The ONLY exception to this is having a single scout account OR a single teleblock account that you do not engage in PVP activities on.
12. Point farming/Vote ticket farming is not allowed.
This means any methods to obtain points that becomes unfair to other players. This includes the dis allowance of farming Wilderness and Loyalty points.
13. Auto chat - what is/not allowed.
The use of auto chat in the game is permitted as long as no color or styles are used. Third party programs to auto chat is not permitted. Furthermore, only one account at a time may AFK auto-type at home to advertise for a clan.
14. Ragging at Edgeville / Edgepvp / Gepvp is not allowed.
The blacklist feature is there to allow players to block out people they do not wish to fight fairly (i.e. max gear vs rune). This does not mean ragging is allowed in any means necessary. Ragging can be defined as using protection prayers on someone who is not, far-casting them, constantly spec and teleporting, Rushing high risk fighters (Red Skull) and so on. Please note that normal rushing (without overhead protection or the use of Freeze-spells) is allowed, although within Edgepvp and Gepvp there is a zero tolerance. Pjing is not allowed at Edgeville, Edgepvp, or ::FFA / ::Funpk. There is a zero tolerance policy for any kind of ragging, this means no warnings will be given prior to punishment.
15. Rules for the use of ::yell
This command is not to be abused, spammed, or used to harass, disrespect/flame other players, or disrespect the server.
Luring players over yell and using the Auto chat Feature is also forbidden.
Disconnections - If the Vitality server goes down, where ZERO players are able to login, then a player can expect a refund. However, if there is no indication of this, and the disconnect was due to your own internet you will NOT be refunded.
Bugs - Players must have proof or able to recreate any bugs linked to losing their items. If a player is eligible for a refund, they will be contacted by an Admin and the situation will be handled accordingly.
Donations - Any donations made are nonrefundable as these are not purchases in game, but instead a donation to help the server. Charging back will result in your account being permanently banned.
Hacking - You will not be refunded if you get hacked. We give plenty of options to secure your account and your accounts items, including reminders to change password, bank pins, and account pints. It is up to a player to ensure their account is secure.
Scamming - Refunds from duel arena scams will almost always never be given, especially if it was a trust trade between two players. Exceptions to this can be established with valid proof, but is still not a guarantee for a refund. In the instance of a Dice Host scam, there will always be a refund in the form of the original bet (please note that the promised winnings will NOT be paid out)
