Staff have the jurisdiction to define what loopholing is if absolutely necerssary. Staff are not above this rule.
Minging will not be tolerated
You can not force another player to interact with an NPC/ATM.
Excessive baiting/trash talking in any type of Green-zone because you cannot be harmed in the green zone will be considered a green zone violation.[This will NOW be considered a Banable offense... and DOES not mean you can shoot the person talking shit... Call for an Admin and they will deal with it..] Obviously, this does not apply if prior RP was initiated outside the Green-zone Having a house in a Green-zone does not make your house immune to robbers. GZ do not apply if you are Robbing/breaking into houses.

RDM (Random Deathmatch): When someone kills others for no reason or without a valid RP reason or initiation.
