Bear in mind that consequences for breaking the rules may vary pending on the severity of the offense.
First Offense: Warning. The Moderator will PM the offending player with a warning and suggestions on how to remedy the situation. If the Moderator's PM gets no response, the Moderator will repeat their warning on the public boards to ensure that it is seen by the offending player.
Second Offense: 1 week account ban. The player will be given the remainder of the current week to either weave their character out of play or allow the Moderator or another trusted player to play their character for the duration of the ban.
Third Offense: 1 month account ban. The player will be given the remainder of the current week, as with the second offense, to weave out or hand over their character. After this grace week, the account of the offending character will be banned for a month.
Fourth Offense: Permanent account ban. The account of the offending player will be permanently banned from the group and the character(s) woven out of the role-play by the Moderator or a designated player(s). The offending player may continue with any other accounts they have, or create a new one.
Extreme Measures: If the offense is bad enough, and all other options have been exhausted, the offending player may be IP banned from the group and their character(s) woven out of play by the Moderator or players.
