For the past couple weeks, we have been reworking our ruleset to adapt to the community as best as possible. As the community has grown & evolved, it became clear that the most basic rules needed to change as well. From the inception of our community, the rules have been incredibly basic, and lately sometimes seen as a bit too vague or malleable, so changes have been made to combat negative/disruptive behavior. Much of what you will see has already been globally enforced, however the language is much clearer. Notably, Rule #1 has been separated into two rules (new Rule #7 regarding discrimination), and a new Rule #6 regarding advertising has been added.
The updated rules also includes an additional ruleset for timer-based modes (Surf, Bhop, KZ). Whilst they are definitely not perfect (and probably never will be due to the nature of timer modes), this should clear up any confusion.
