XBOX RULES
0. Common Sense.
Common sense will thrive where rules will fail to keep order. The administration team reserves the right to apply judgment to scenarios when they see fit.
The rules for BCRPC aren't written by legal experts, so from time to time loopholes and inaccuracies in our rules may arise. The admin team reserve the right to suspend or remove people from the group if we believe that they are not BCRPC material. This will only happen in situations where players are deliberately causing mischief in the group but are not actually breaking any rules. The admin team expects all members to use common sense in these scenarios; if you think that something won't be allowed or will get you in trouble it's probably best you don't do it.

1.  No Metagaming.
Metagaming is very unfair toward other players and can potentially ruin roleplay, therefore the offenses are treated very seriously by our admins.
Metagaming is defined as using Out of Character (OOC) information In Character (IC). Using an OOC medium such as text chat, Discord messages, etc to contact someone and distribute IC information violates this rule. 

          - No Name Tags - Name Tags can help a player metagame. To help solve metagaming we require you to go into your GTA 5 settings and turn off your Name Tags 

2. No RDM/VDM.
RDM-Random Death Match
VDM-Vehicle Death Match
You may not attack or kill players without a legitimate roleplay reason.
You must also initiate with someone before taking any action.
Other offenses related to deathmatching that are strictly prohibited include, but are not limited to:
Revenge Killing - Killing, injuring or engaging with a player who has previously killed you. After your character gets killed - they no longer remember anything about their death, and you're not allowed to use your OOC knowledge about death in any way ICly.
Returning to the scene of your death for any reason (e.g, retrieving your vehicle) is not allowed and you should wait until the situation has come to an end before returning to the area. This includes doing these things with an alternative character.
Car ramming - Using a vehicle to ram another player (on foot or in a vehicle) without a proper reason or any roleplay.
Terrorist Roleplay - Roleplay acts like suicide-bombing, kamikaze attacks and etc are strictly prohibited unless you have permission from an administrator.
Bomb Roleplay - If someone wishes to RP a bomb, they need admin permission for it. In order to obtain admin permission, you must provide screenshots of in-depth roleplay of making the bomb and the /time should be included.

3. Must remain In Character, unless specified otherwise by an Administrator.
This includes, but is not limited to:
Abusing game chat to OOCly to troll another player
Skipping/voiding roleplay situations without administrative permission.
Complaining via OOC chats (Discord, etc.) about the way the roleplay scenario turned out.
You may only ask for the reason for arrests ICly and may not turn the situation from IC to OOC by questioning the police in the party chat. Arrests are an IC matter and should be dealt with ICly, including false arrests. You are free to bring the case to the admin team afterward.
If you think the other player broke the rules or you're in disagreement with them - you are entitled to call in an administrator for help. However, you are not allowed to pause the roleplay until the admin arrives unless the other player agrees to pause it. If they don't agree - you have to continue roleplaying and submit a complaint after the roleplay is over.

4. Spamming.
General rules about Spamming you need to know.
You may not spam any IC chats.
The reasoning behind this rule should be quite clear. Other players intend to roleplay around you and the spamming of a chat will make it more difficult for them to do so. As such, action will be taken against spammers.
Spam-robbing and spam-scamming are not allowed.
You are allowed to scam and rob players, although scamming/robbing should not be treated as a side job. (Participating in more than 3 robberies in less than 24 hours.)
You are also not allowed to target one person for a 'crime' over and over again without valid evidence.

5. OOC chats.
General rules about the OOC Chats you need to know.
OOC is an English-only chat. Use private messages to speak in other languages.
This may seem like a strange rule, however, this is the language that administrators can police properly. The use of other languages makes the administration staff assume that you are speaking about rule-breaking and as such will take action against you. You might be denied access to the server if your English abilities are not capable enough.
No flaming or insulting in OOC chats.
This includes directly or indirectly insulting a player, name-calling of any degree, the use of racial slurs and sectarian comments or any other form of discrimination. We aim to keep the server a friendly place and you should adjust your attitude to that.

6. Administrative decisions are final.
Decisions made by anyone that holds the title of admin are to be followed, failure to do so can lead to various consequences. Consequences will be determined by the Admin of Discipline or the Owner respectively.
If you feel that the decision that was made by any admin was unfair or unjust you can appeal the ruling to the owner for reexamination. The person appealing the decision will be tasked to present his or her case to the owner, and the Admin that made the decision will also be available to present his or her case if they want to. Once the two have presented their case to the owner. The owner will have the ability to deem the decision fair or unfair. If it is deemed fair, the decision that was made will still stand, and will continue to be followed. If it is deemed unfair, the decision will be repealed and is then not expected to be followed.

7. Money farming is prohibited in BCRPC.
Creating jobs for the sole reason of gaining money is not something that would be possible in real life and as such we have deemed it to be unacceptable.
This would include the use of Interactions with Ai for the sole purpose of earning. E.g Selling stuff to them.

8. No advertising other servers or creating services for BCRPC without proper permission.
BCRPC does not approve of services that were made for, but not by itself. The reliability of such services may not be sufficient and may harm the reputation of our community. You may not create things like a Teamspeak server etc unless you have at least a Lead Admins approval.

9. No committing crimes in places that are generally guarded.
Places like government headquarters, banks, and other public buildings are usually either guarded or have a live CCTV system with an operator, therefore the police would be immediately notified about any crimes that happen within them. Since there is no way to make an automatic notification, we need you to make sure that proper authorities are notified if you commit a crime in one of the locations listed below you have to request an administrator to alert the authorities about the crime. If there are no administrators online try contacting an officer directly via message and ask them to announce it via discord or statewide radio.
Purposefully raiding government headquarters (for example to break a friend out of jail, or to kidnap a police officer) requires permission from an administrator.
Places that fall under this rule:
Police Departments (Sandy Shores, Paleto Bay, NOOSE HQ)
Fire Departments (Sandy Shores, Paleto Bay)
Humane Labs
Fort Zancudo
Banks (all banks within Blaine County & Los Santos)
Stores (High-end Clothing stores, Ammunition stores, Theaters )

10. You may not force any player into roleplay with sexual harassment unless both parties agree on OOC'ly.
Due to the fact that many players find roleplaying sexual activities disturbing and/or disgusting, you have to ask the person you wish to roleplay with if they wish to participate. Pedophilia and Incest behavior, however, is not allowed at all.

11. You may not advertise/barter for illicit merchandise in public chats.
Using public advertisements in order to obtain or sell illegal merchandise has been deemed Non-RP. Considering the fact that the advertisements are RPed processed by a person, it would be rather obvious what someone's true intentions are when creating such an advert.

12. You may not roleplay your character being younger than 16 under any circumstances.
The youngest age allowed to RP is 16.

13. In-game objects may not be sold for Real-life cash.
Selling in-game properties/money/vehicles for real-life cash, or buying properties/money/vehicles with it is not allowed.
Selling donor vehicles (aka transferring them to someone's account in exchange for money) is not allowed, be it for forum points or real-life cash.

14. You may not base your character on a famous person.
This includes actors, movie characters, politicians, artists, athletes and so on.
We understand that people tend to have the same names in real life but it has been decided to not be allowed on the group for various reasons.

15. Using OOC methods to escape roleplay is strictly forbidden.
Escaping roleplay after it has been started is strictly forbidden, it ruins the roleplay for all parties involved. You are not allowed to leave a roleplay without permission from an administrator or the other parties involved.
The time frame that allows you to leave a roleplay is 5 minutes. If you are being chased by the police you may not leave the server or go AFK until the 5-minute timer is up as such it will be classified as "escaping" roleplay.
If you legitimately crash/disconnect during a roleplay situation you will usually be given around 10 minutes to come back online. If you don't come back in time you will receive a normal punishment for leaving to avoid roleplay - if you find yourself in such a situation you can try to get ahold of the banning admin (via Xbox Live or forum PMs) and explain the situation to them. If you're found to be saying the truth - your ban will be removed.

16. Respecting others.
We aim to keep the community a nice place and in order for us to do so, some basic rules need to be put into place.
These include, but are not limited to:
Disrespecting members of the community.
Disrespecting administrators.
Communicating with others with the sole intention of insulting them/upsetting them.
Participating in an argument with the sole intention of insulting those involved.
Provoking other community members/administrators.

17. No OOC lying.
Out of character lying is strictly forbidden. You may not under any circumstances OOCly lie about anything to anyone.

18. Evading any Discipline Actions, or knowingly engaging with an evading player is forbidden.
Players that are banned from the group should remain banned until such a time that they successfully appeal. Using methods to attempt to play on the server while banned is strictly forbidden. Any players suspecting that another player may be ban evading should report it to a member of the administration team.
You might also be punished if you're found to be assisting someone in breaking the rules. This could be anything from sharing a bug with them to sharing your account.

19. Replenishing health and/or armor during combat.
Any and all methods of increasing your current health/armor whilst in a shootout/brawl or other similar combat scenarios that may lead to severe injuries caused by physical conflict is strictly prohibited. This includes using drugs/consumables to increase health/armor, such as bull sharks, drinks, and food items.
Note: 'healing' wounds, such as wrapping them with bandages, etc, does not allow you to replenish any health. As said wounds still exist and reduce your functionality. This rule applies to all community members. No factions are exempt from this rule.

20. You are not allowed to purposefully disturb an IC event without administrative permission.
IC events are organized with the intention to entertain the players who participate in them. Any acts that might lead to the event being ended prematurely / being disturbed to the point that players' enjoyment of said event may be disrupted/cause the players to leave are not allowed unless specific permission from an administrator is given. This includes, but is not limited to: shootouts, police raids, bomb threats.
Disturbing an IC event without administrative permission will result in a temporary or permanent ban, depending on the severity.

21. Businesses and groups require written approval from an admin.
Businesses and groups are given additional perks and authority in roleplay sessions. Written approval is required from an Admin detailing what exactly they can and can't do before they are allowed to proceed in roleplay.
Proceeding with a business or faction without administrative permission will result in a temporary or permanent ban, depending on the severity.

22. Provoking public services and criminals is strictly prohibited (Baiting).
Provoking public services and criminals to get a response (E.G. Pursuits) is strictly prohibited. Provoking is highly unrealistic and very annoying for the parties involved.

23.Realism.
Anytime that you are in roleplay you are always to be realistic in everything that you do.

28. Valuing Life.
To value your life you must think of it as your character could die at the next moments' notice based on what you do. This could include: reaching/pulling a gun on someone who already has one aimed at you. Attempting to run away when someone has you held at gunpoint. Doing things that could possibly end your life. People who do not value their life are liable for a suspension/ban depending on severity.

29. Session Swapping.
In the event that a second session should be created those who are to join that session should not immediately leave for the first session that Is filled as it decreases the value of role-playing and detracts from the ability to role-play from those who are in session 2.

30. Chain of Command.
To keep BCRPC running smoothly and not overwhelm the staff it is imperative that you go to the proper staff members within BCRPC, for example. Department heads & admins based on what you need to talk about/ tell them. Don't just run to Cheetah.

31. Instigating.
At no point should there be Instigating occurring within BCRPC; chats, pm, during Roleplay. This is; arguing, fighting, yelling, calling names. If there is a problem you are to take it to an administrator.
