YANG Terms and Conditions

 
     
 

By downloading YANG and connecting to any of the YANG servers, you must agree to accept the YANG network terms without question arranged by the YANG management staff. These rules have been established to provide an enjoyable game playing environment for everyone. The YANG staff reserves the right to revise these rules without notice. YANG staff will take whatever steps necessary to enforce these rules. Breaking such rules risks getting banned depending on the severity of the offence.

YANG staff attempts to regulate content which the staff deems inappropriate. The appropriateness of any content is the sole judgment of the YANG staff.

The YANG staff will make every reasonable attempt to moderate public game rooms, and game servers. However, the YANG staff are not able to monitor everything. To that end, the YANG staff cannot be held responsible for the content which users are exposed to.

 

The following activities are strictly forbidden from being discussed or portrayed using any of the YANG resources.

Abuse toward other players:
No player may harass, threaten or intimidate another player. This includes, but is not limited to racial, sexual or ethnic slurs directed at any player.
 
     
Abuse toward other Server:  
  Any attempt to disrupt, "crash", or in any way interfere with the performance, usability or availability of any YANG server. Flooding, spamming or any other behavior which can adversely affect the performance of the server is not permitted. Any methods such as excessive network traffic or CPU load is strictly forbidden.  
     
Inappropriate use of YANG rooms:  
  Rooms may not bear any offensive name, map name, MOTD, email address or URL which may in any way offend any YANG player. Racially, sexually or ethnically offensive room names are strictly forbidden.

This includes any modification to any game file, any map file or any other method of altering the behavior of the game other than those available to other players on the same host. This does not include any weapon, feature or style of game play that is available to all players in the game.  
     
Impersonating YANG staff members:  
  No one may claim to be a YANG staff member, or in any way mislead other players into thinking that they in any way represent the YANG project or its staff members. This includes either mimicking the name of any staff member whose name appears on the YANG website. Player names which are designed with the intention of misrepresenting themselves as YANG staff members are forbidden. YANG staff members do not identify themselves as such when they play YANG. Any player claiming to be involved with the YANG project might possibly be an imposter. For this reason, NEVER give any personal information to anyone.  
     
YANG Servers:  
  The YANG Master server is the exclusive property of the YANG staff. Any server, client or launcher that connects to it must abide by the rules, principals and expectations of the YANG staff. The YANG servers which connect to the Master are owned and operated by the individuals who have installed the YANG software. Other than the preceding rules, the YANG staff will not dictate the way in which each of these independent servers are used, but the staff reserves the right to block any server from the master list for any violation.

Other topics which, in the opinon of the YANG staff, are likely to cause arguments or other disruptive behavior are also prohibted.  
     
Spoofing Server Names:  
  The use of any server name for the purpose of spoofing a server which is known to belong to someone else is forbidden.  
     
Challenging any Admin:

Supporting Disruption:  
  Providing any form of assistance, information or support to any person who in any way intends to disrupt any YANG service is strictly forbidden. Failure to report obvious indications of system disruption will be considered providing support for that purpose.
