Event System Guidelines
In order to ensure that the system is used appropriately and can be enjoyed by as many people as possible, we ask that you follow the following rules and guidelines when using the system.
§1 - Event Page Information
§1.1 - Only create an event if you are hosting an event
If you do not have the intention of hosting an event within TruckersMP, then you are not permitted to make an event on the system.
§1.2 - Ensure event information is appropriate
All information boxes for your event (including but not limited to; game, date & time & description) & images (including but not limited to; event banner & route) must not contain any inappropriate content such as profanity, insults, discrimination, racism, discussing/expressing (extreme) political views, illegal or inappropriate situations. All images used must be SFW (safe for work), and be copyright free or of your own creation.
By using the Event System you agree that any part of your event (ranging from an information field to the entire event) may be removed without warning by staff should it violate any official TruckersMP Rules, or the rules listed here. One of the most important rules to follow is: §1.5 - Inappropriate use of language, communication and impersonation of any kind.
§1.3 - Links
Any links you include in your event information section must be safe and not contain any malicious content, of which includes but is not limited to; any reference to drugs or other illegal substances, pornographic or sexual content or other inappropriate matters.
In case of charity events: endorsement of a non-profit organisation or official donation link for the event by a non-profit organisation is required. As with any other inappropriate link, unofficial donation links will be removed without warning and further punishments may be given.
Examples for appropriate links are direct links on the charity’s website or campaign pages like justgiving.com or betterplace.org.
§1.4 - Individuality
You must create your own event, do not create an event with the intention to duplicate an existing event and claim the event to be yours.
§1.5 - Advertisement
You are not allowed to use the system to advertise other events outside of TruckersMP, including IRL (in real life) events that may be related to TruckersMP. The system is for events that will be hosted within TruckersMP on American Truck Simulator or Euro Truck Simulator 2.
§2 - Event Organisation
§2.1 - Having an event does not give you additional rights
All TruckersMP rules must still be followed on public servers regardless of whether you have an event page on the system for your event or not. Having an event on the system does not give you any advantages or rights in-game, or across our social media platforms including Discord direct messages.
Rule §2, and particularly §2.6 of our official TruckersMP rules are rules that must be followed at all times.
The existence of an Event System page for your event has no significance while you are conducting the event in-game on a public server.
§2.2 - Temporary event rules
You cannot create or enforce temporary rules for your event using the Event System when located on a public server; official TruckersMP rules take precedence over any rule you claim to have for your event. Temporary event rules are only enforceable on special event servers.
For information on configuring your event server, please refer to this article.
Please consult the Event Server Request section further down this article for information on when you can request an event server for your event, and subsequently request temporary event rules.
