Game Rules

If you are unsure if something is not allowed, don't hesitate to ask a mod/admin either in-game or on discord.
1.1 User scripts can be allowed when they solely make visual changes, and are subject to the Scripts and Extensions rules.
Idlescape is not affiliated with any userscript or extension, and use of 3rd party scripts is at your own risk
1.2 Only one account per player is allowed
You can have as many characters as a single account allows (one regular character, one ironman, one challenge ironman. Challenge Ironman are only approved by admins and can't be created by players)
1.2.1 Having multiple accounts is not allowed - Alts are not allowed.
1.2.2 Players must not share, transfer or lend their account to anyone else.
1.2.3 No boosting. Do not give excessive gifts to another player, giving them an unfair advantage over others. Small gifts between friends or to help new players are fine.
This also includes gifting free dungeon runs.
1.2.4 Don't impersonate others
1.3 Trading any items, services or other things from outside of Idlescape for items, services or other things inside of Idlescape is against the rules
Breaking this rule will result in a tradeban for both players and any gained advantage to be taken away
1.4 Spamming multiple listings of the same item on market.
For example: putting several items at or around the same price in low quantities, would be considered spamming
1.5 Only use the @mods tag for emergencies such as spamming, racism, things being broken etc. Unnecessary use will result in a mute. Use the feedback button or create a discord ticket if you need to get in touch with mods.
1.6 Dungeon key refunds will only be permitted if a player disconnects (due to a server disconnect or unstable internet) and leaves the party, causing the party to fail the dungeon.
Completion of a dungeon despite a disconnect will not result in a key refund. Intentionally forcing a disconnect to obtain a key refund is not allowed. Abuse of the key refund system will be punished.
Disconnecting while solo'ing a dungeon does not cause you to fail the dungeon. Upon page refresh you should still be in the dungeon. If you aren't, you were defeated.

2.5.1 No trade chat in general and vice-versa
2.5.2 Speak English
Occasional use of other languages may be allowed, but keep it minimal
2.5.3 External links need to be as short as possible, have a clear purpose, and need to be direct links.
Links that are beneficial to a player are not allowed, this includes referral-links, promotional links, and advertisement links
2.6 Any risk to the general peace and/or degrading to the quality of chat or experience playing the game for other players is not allowed
2.7 All chat rules also apply to player names, item names, and chatroom names.
Names that do not follow this rule are subject to be "flowered". Having a name that previously did not get flowered is no guarantee for the future

User made chat channels are exempt from rule 2.1: "Spamming is not allowed" and rule 2.5: "Use chat in the way they where meant to be used." Other rules do apply to user made chat channels, and the chat channel owner has the responsibility to ensure the rules are followed.

Scripts and Extensions

Idlescape is not affiliated with any userscript or extension, and use of 3rd party scripts is at your own risk
Scripts and extensions are allowed to a certain extent, with the exception of any form of automation of game mechanics, unless they are built into the game.
3.1 The only permitted way to communicate with the server and send requests is through the game's own UI.
3.1.1 Any form of usage, distribution, or development of extensions that communicate with the game server is strictly prohibited and will result in a ban.
3.1.2 Having a relisting button in the marketplace is not allowed. This action directly communicates with the server by sending an unlist request followed by a market listing post request.
3.1.3 Fetching prices of market items is not allowed, as it involves sending requests to the server to fetch prices for individual items.
3.1.4 Other methods to communicate with the server directly are not allowed.
3.2 Any form of automation or botting is not allowed.
3.2.1 Creation, distribution or conversation on bots or automation devices are not allowed.
3.2.3 User scripts are under no circumstances allowed to make calls to the server.
3.2.3 The only allowed way to create actions in the game is through the built-in buttons and inputs

Examples of allowed modifications include having additional metrics (e.g., exp/hm) in resource nodes, UI changes, and new UI elements. These are acceptable as long as they do not send requests to the server or display active buffs from equipment in the UI.

You are recommended to inform a mod/admin when you want clarification on the rules surrounding an extension.

These guidelines are non exhaustive, moderators and administrators will moderate at their discretion.

If you think an error was made by a moderator or administrator, feel free to use the "Send Feedback" to get it reviewed.

If you feel the rules are wrong, unfair, or incomplete, feel free to use the "Send Feedback" to get it reviewed.
