FlipChat1 Rules

Introduction

The rules of FlipChat1 are in place to help us all enjoy an engaging, safe and above all enjoyable environment, whether this be within the game or on the website & forum. The rules below cover everything that generally results in a kick or ban from the channel, however, please respect a rank enforcing a rule that may not be covered on this page. We recommend also making use of RuneScape's ignore list if you do not wish to interact with certain players. If you witness another user presenting a serious risk to other users within the channel, you should contact us using this forum section: Rants.

Everyone using the channel has rules to follow, there are no exceptions made for anyone. If any issues should arise, we will deal with them as effectively as possible. It should be known that we have a list of users in which gets updated regularly from reports. These users are kick-on-sight (KOS) and will not be allowed to enter the channel for extended periods of time and will be removed as soon as a rank see’s them online.

If you have any questions, create a forum thread here or send a private message to a FlipChat1 kick rank in-game. Alternatively, you can contact us via Email, Facebook or Twitter.

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with these rules.
