    3.1 Account, Characters and Item Naming in SWGEmu should reflect the genre of the game. The naming policy encompasses first and last names. The following types of names are inappropriate:
    • 3.1.1 Vile, profane, rude, or racist names including common swear words, anatomical references, racial slurs, and homonyms of these words.
    • 3.1.2 Combinations of words that produce an offensive result (e.g., Hugeaz, Tug Mcgroin, KneeGrow).
    • 3.1.3 Any and all drug references.
    • 3.1.4 Proper names from the Star Wars universe, including the first or last name of any significant NPC or Creature in Star Wars Galaxies or the Star Wars universe (e.g. Skywalker, Greedo, Vader, Exar Kun, Xizor, Fett, Revan, Acklay, Krayt, Gorax, Fire (for Fire Spider)
    • 3.1.5 Any modern public, historical or religious personage references. (e.g God, Jesus, Allah, Satan, Adolf Hitler, Stalin, Biden, Trump)
    • 3.1.6 Names chosen with the intent, or possessed of the effect of harming the reputation of, or used to impersonate an SWGEmu staff member.
    • 3.1.7 Names chosen with the intent to disrupt gameplay for others
    3.2 For all of the above, misspellings and alternative spellings of the word or words are also unacceptable. Guild Tags that violate the above rules will be disbanded and the guild leader will be subject to disciplinary action. Characters with any of the above types of name violations can be deleted. There will be no reimbursements made for any items, structures, credits, skills, or any other game related issue directly related to the character name being changed for the above violations. Items or objects with these words will be deleted without reimbursement.

    3.3 Combinations of items or structures that violate the above rules will also be deleted without reimbursement for the item, structure, credit investment or contents. Any other name deemed inappropriate that may not fall under the above categories will be deleted at the decision of SWGEmu Staff, who have the final say on all name changes. Repeated violations can also result in an account ban.
    (This means we will no longer be renaming structure or content. If it violates the TOS it will be deleted)


    Note: Violating any of the below rules will result in disciplinary action being taken against the character that may include official warnings, @muteplayer, @kill, @kick, and @ban. Multiple infractions by a character or several characters associated with an account will result in the @ban on that account. If more than one account resides in the household they will all be banned.

    4.1. You may not harass or threaten other players (sexually, racially, or otherwise). Final determination of player infraction and severity will be made by a CSR. This includes but is not limited to: Hate Mongering, Sexual Abuse. Harassment, Training, Phishing and Spamming.
    • 4.1.1 Harassment is defined as any unwanted or unwelcome behavior beyond the limits of good taste, civility and appropriate game context. Please report any harassment (with relevant supporting evidence) to SWGEmu Support Staff. Staff will make a determination of any possible infractions that result from their investigation.
    • 4.1.2 Training is defined as pulling/leading a hostile NPC or creature along behind you to attempt to get it to attack another player who does not desire that engagement.
    • 4.1.3 Phishing is defined as deliberately and persistently wandering into the "visibility radiusĒ of a Jedi to force them onto BH terminals. That said, the galaxyís currently a dangerous place for a Jedi and they canít expect to be in one location for long without attracting attention.
    • 4.1.4 Spamming is defined as excessive and inappropriate use of spatial communications (i.e. emote spamming, excessive hawking or tip spamming). Rule of thumb, once every 3 minutes (/pause 180) is plenty for hawking (selling) an item or advertising for buffs. Buff instructions from entertainers can be given in group chat to keep from cluttering up spatial. As there is no Auto-AFK timeout on the server, emotes (/smile, /clap, etc) in your macros serve no purpose other than to clutter up spatial, and should not be used. Note: excessive numbers of hawkers in an area may be removed from the server by a CSR.
    • 4.1.5 Scamming is defined as a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit. It is also defined as to cheat or defraud with a scam. Proof from the involved account must be submitted to SWGEmu Staff in a ticket and an investigation will be done to determine if it is indeed scamming. (E.g. purposefully mislabeled bags)
    • 4.1.6 Player made channels will be player moderated. Violations of TOS in these channels can be submitted to SWGEmu Staff to see if it warrants disciplinary action
    • 4.1.7 Hate Mongering is defined as the act or practice of stirring up hatred or enmity in others. This includes the calling of names (e.g, Retard, autistic, ***, *****, etc) in a harmful manner. Also, starting a conversation you know will make someone react in a manner that is against TOS. Please report this (with relevant supporting evidence) to SWGEmu Support Staff. Staff will make a determination of any possible infractions that result from their investigation.
    4.2. You may not use any sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive language, in any language. The presence of any form of preventative filter or other game features is not license or permission, tacit or otherwise, to use such language in any form. The account is subject to and can lead up to a ban.

    4.3. You may not impersonate any SWGEmu Staff Member or associated Server Admins, past or present. This includes any form of parody, jest, or attempt to deflect other players for fear of action being taken against their account. This includes:
    • 4.3.1 Attempting to Defraud a Staff Member - Petitioning with false information with the intention of receiving benefits as a result. This includes reporting bug deaths, item loss, or fraudulently accusing other players of wrongdoing.
    • 4.3.2 Impersonating a CSR or falsely representing yourself to another player as SWGEmu Staff.
    • 4.3.3 Arguing with CSR personnel in tells after they have resolved an issue according to the rules. If you have an issue with how a CSR has handled your case, you may put in a ticket requesting a review.
    • 4.3.4 CS Personnel Abuse - sending excessive unsolicited tells to a CSR, Admin or Dev, excessively using say or other channels to communicate to a CSR, making physical threats, using abusive language against a CSR

    • 4.3.7 You may not use CSR, GM, QA, EC or DEV as any part of your name or bio, even if you had the positions on live. These designations are reserved for current staff members.
    Please note that this list is not all inclusive and a CSR/Admin may determine that other actions are considered abuse. This will be done on a case by case review.

    4.4. You may not violate any local, state, national or international law or regulation, while accessing or utilizing any SWGemu server. Violation of any said laws will result in the immediate termination of your account.

    4.5. You may not modify any part of the Star Wars Galaxies client. This includes but is not limited to:
    • 4.5.1 Any hardware or third party software that allows unattended game play, alters movement speed of your character, or anything other action which we determine as an unfair advantage to your character.
    • 4.5.2 Client mods that negate or alter the need for interaction with any profession, increase or change the stats of any item, increase inventory or interface with third party programs so that AFK play is enabled.
    • 4.5.3 Client mods produced by the SWGEmu Client Developer and Modification Team and officially approved by the Development Team and TC Server Admins are the exception to this rule.
