Chat Rules: Following these rules in chat is crucial to keeping our server family-friendly and fun for everyone. They must be followed at all times and are punishable if broken.
No swearing; this includes ‘light’ swears

Do not discriminate against anyone
Do not claim false staffhood
No drama or complaining
General Rules: These rules must be followed and are punishable if broken.
You must not impersonate any staff member; this means stealing a custom skin or mocking a username

Roleplay is encouraged, but make sure it is clear you are RP'ing.
You are not allowed to cast offensive spells on other players in the forest or the Wilderness without mutual consent. There are dueling arenas and the Room of Training for that!
The Room of Training is the only area on the server where you can cast offensive spells on people without their permission
No whining, complaining, or bad mouthing the server. We are in beta and strive every day to make the server better
No begging or asking for classes please. We have a schedule that will show what times and which days our professors will hold classes

No gambling of any kind.
When Head Staff make a decision, is it to be respected and followed. No arguing.
When in class, remain respectful and follow all general rules.

Heads of Staff are also Teamspeak/Discord admins and can be gone to with any Teamspeak/Discord issues

You are expected to take responsibility for all actions that occur on your account. You will not be dismissed from a rule because ‘your brother’ logged on your account. You are expected to follow our rules at all times. Rules can be added or amended at any time as the server evolves. Saying you didn’t know about a rule is not a valid excuse due to all of the ways you can review the rules. It is your responsibility to know the rules. Head Staff will do whatever they feel is right to protect the security, safety, and organization of this server.
Thank you for reading the rules! Enjoy your time on Potterworld!
