The rules on the server are almost identical to the DB Chat Room's rules.

Swearing isn't allowed if it becomes aggressive or is intrusive against any user.


Staff

Similar to the Database, we have ranks. These ranks are assigned based on activity and contribution both on the server and on the database.

What can staff do?

  • + Voice - They can use ! commands such as !groups, and talk during moderated chat. Also can start and end tournaments.

  • % Driver - The above, and they can also mute users and un-mute users.

  • @ Moderator - The above, and they can ban users and check for alts.

  • & Leader - The above, they can permaban and get italicized names.

  • ~ Administrator - They can do anything.

With the main Admin of the server stepping down to pursue his life, it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Sciz. With innovative projects such as Scizbot who has been beloved by people in the end, as well as doing the general fixing of the server, we will utilize his ideas as we move forward. It was fun Sciz, hope to see you around in the future with a (Hopefully) larger community there. You'll always be offered your spot back when you decide to return once again. You will be missed man.

The current staff:

  • ~ PokemasterDB
  • ~ Mewderator
  • ~ NoisyMango
  • ~ Psychic x
  • & Aeternis
  • @ Flafpert
  • @ Garden of Sinners
  • @ Sir_Mudkip
  • % Kazemon
  • % Pokewatt
  • + TooJosh4U
  • + Runemark
  • + MudoTyphlosion
  • + MonoUmbreon
  • + CWegz

Reporting Users

Answer here, give screenshot. If you cannot give screenshot, add some backers and have them do it.

Any reports will be addressed by staff.

I've done that already, doesn't work
Found out what was wrong and fixed it, some updating error for chrome or something.
When will this update?
If you mean the server, when PM feels like it. If you mean the auth, it probably won't until they get enough regular activity to see problems. If you mean the thread, I can update it now with anything new, if you don't mind reminding me of said changes.

DB Server FAQ


Question 1: What's an FAQ, Sciz?
> An FAQ is somewhere where I and the rest of the moderation team will answer the most asked answers to do with the server.

Question 2: Sciz, can you restart the server?
>No, no I can't. I don't own the VPS nor do I host it. That is down to PM.

Question 3: How can I get a promotions?
>I'm going to be honest here and say that someone asking this question will be unlikely to get promoted as we are full for staff at the moment. But here you go: Staff FAQ. We also work on how active you are on both the site and server so mainly Experts (+) get promoted.

Question 4: Can I suggest commands for the server?
> Of course you can, here let your juices flow.

Question 5: Why was I banned?
> Can you not answer that yourself? If not ask one of us on our walls on the DB. Here's mine.

Question 6: Sciz y do u r sak?
> "Baby I was born this way!" ~ Lady Gaga


Mods, if you feel there's anything else that needs adding to this then please do add it. Just follow the format please to avoid confusion. Thanks!
