The rules for the Ingame Chat and Forum are as follows:
1. Keep Spamming to a minimum and don't post ENTIRELY off-topic. If anybody spams multiple times, then a warning will be given.
Spam on the forums is making posts containing one or only a few word, or posting completely off-topic.
This is either to gain post count or to troll. Some examples:
- People posting "bump." in less than 24 hour intervals.
- Completely posting off-topic.
- Posting nonsense such as "dawemxnzbbfsdkjfhls;dhssdfk".

2. Do not advertise any real world trading. Th only rwt authorized is via the donor shop.

You cannot advertise the following:
* A fellow website, or another community.
* A Youtube channel(Unless its for the server).
* Servers, Runescape, or any other game.
* Fansites (Must be approved.)
If caught spamming or advertising the above, you will be deferred to an administrator or moderator, it depends on the situation. On the forum this will lead to an ipban

8. Signatures should not be obnoxiously large. That's just annoying.

9. Nude pictures or any other explicit material as avatar/profile picture/signature isn't tolerated either. Posting them is obviously against the rules as well. For Pete's sake, we have children playing this game.

Also, you will need to wait until a staff member replies.
Patience is the key.

To recover one's account involves Character files. If you're having trouble recovering your account try the following.

1. Approach an owner, and ask him how he can assist you in this type of situation. once responded, follow directions and be patient!
