Each type of offense contains examples of them in italics. If you commit an offense, the appropriate punishment will be issued and your strike count may increase. After a certain amount of strikes have been added to your profile, you will be permanently banned. It is in your best interest to behave and follow the rules.
• Strikes are cumulative. New punishments are based solely on your strikes count, disregarding the categories of previous offenses.
• If multiple offenses occur over two or more categories in a single event, ban days will stack and a single strike will be added.
• You are responsible for all DN activity performed on your account and/or network, even if other individuals break the rules using them.
• The use of Proxy Servers, Public Hotspots is not recommended, as it could result in an automatic ban of your account. Unban of these accounts is completely up to the discretion of our Head Administration. Use at your own risk!
