You may not advertise on other servers either as that attracts negative attention towards ferox-os & it may attract malicious intent.

Your reports can remain anonymous, simply privately contact a staff member about the issue and let them know you wish for the report to be anonymous.
21: Staff Disrespect
Disrespecting a member of our staff team will not be tolerated, they’re here to help you.
Making accusations (without proof/basis) of a staff member abusing their powers falls in this category. If they’re abusive, please create a formal and respectful topic about it on the forums, or PM one to an administrator
This especially applies to any flaming as a result of someone punishing/infracting you.
If you don’t agree with a staff member’s decision, RESPECTFULLY report it on the forums so it can be reviewed by the owners and administrators. Signs of blatant disrespect/slandering within these posts will drastically decrease it’s validity, and in some cases breaks this rule on its own.
If you are warned by a staff member for any false accusations over yell chat / in-game, you are obligated to discontinue immediately! Refusal to do so will always result in punishments.
22. False Reports
Intentionally creating false reports against a player or a staff member is a serious offense.
There is a fine line between being a concerned player wanted to report an offense and just trying to get someone in trouble.
These are not only a waste of time for our staff members, but also a major inconvenience to the victim(s). If a staff member is able to verify the person in question is 100% innocent, you’re obligated to comply and drop the accusation. Failure to do so will always result in punishments.

No matter your staff rank or donator status, you WILL be punished if you break the following rules. We sometimes offer leniency, especially for mutable offenses, but there are also non-exceptional offenses such as scamming that will result in punishment without warning. We have zero tolerance for that kind of behavior.
People who have broken rules multiple times (even on separate accounts) face the risk of a full ban from the server. You will be blocked from playing or creating any other accounts.
It should also be noted that exceptions to this rule list will more than likely occur once in a while.
Item lending is at the owner’s risk. Staff will punish those who scam in these cases, but the items may not be able to be recovered. We do not recommend lending items or doing trust trades!
Account sharing is at the owner’s risk, staff may not be able to refund the item(s) or recover the account if lost. The account owner, of a shared account, will also be held accountable for any rules broken under that account name regardless of who was on the account at the time.
