No begging. Asking nicely once or twice is acceptable
No one likes being begged for anything, keep this to an absolute minimum. If you do beg for items you might find yourself muted or banned.
Treat others with respect.
There’s no need to say or do things to make others feel bad or upset. Trolling, generally defined as provoking a person/situation to get a response, is also not allowed.
Offensive content is not allowed.
While some minor amount of swearing is allowed, severe or frequent vulgarity, especially when directed at others, is not.
Advertising is not allowed.
Advertising other Discord servers is strictly banned. You also may not advertise websites, YouTube channels, Twitch streams, or anything else if it is not related to Tellus.
Allow moderators to do their jobs.
You may not attempt to do a moderator’s job in threatening to punish players for breaking the rules. You are not allowed to argue against any decision made by a staff member regarding enforcement of the rules in any public channel. If you do disagree, please contact that staff member privately to resolve the issue, and if you cannot, contact administration via our helpdesk.
Spamming is not allowed
Spamming is filling chat with multiple unneeded characters or messages. Don't do it.
Be mature adults
This server is meant to be drama-free. Anyone participating in word-sniping, bickering, pettiness, etc. will be kicked on the spot. Insistence on participation in drama will result in a ban.

We are not in the habit of policing chat, but some words and sentiments have no place in conversation other than to discriminate or inflame. Be respectful. Those intent on creating a toxic environment will be banned.
English only, please
Including all chat channels. While we celebrate the many cultures our server represents, our already loosely-moderated chat is impossible to manage in multiple languages.
