This is a no tolerance rule and will be dealt with seriously. You may not use any racial, religious, homophobic, anti-semitic, or any otherwise discriminatory slur or hateful speech. You may mess and play around with other players/friends as long as everyone is having fun, however, the rules above still apply, regardless of whether you are joking or not. 

Messing around with friends is allowed as long as no one outside of your friendship circle is affected. If a staff member finds whatever you are doing to be disruptive, they can force you to stop. Everyone inside your circle must also be ok with it.

Rules seen above are subject to change at any time if need be!
