TruckersMP Discord

1. General rules

  • 1.01. Rules listed on https://truckersmp.com/rules apply to this Discord as well.
  • 1.02. The Discord rules take precedence should there be overlap
  • 1.03. You must have a valid TruckersMP account linked to your Discord profile/ID in order to get access to the general chat. If you do not have one linked, you will only be able to chat in the guest chat until you have linked your TruckersMP account.

2. Channel Use

  • 2.01. Text Channels should only be used for their named purpose, for example, advertising of VTCs is only permitted in the #vtc-advertisement text channel, these are limited to once a week.
  • 2.02. Voice Channels should only be used for their named purpose.
  • 2.03. Spamming and flooding, uselessly and over tagging users and channel hopping are not permitted, this applies to bots as well. If you hit a rate limit, you have gone too far long ago (> 2 messages from a specified bot within an hour, repeating the same command someone else just ran, etc.).
  • 2.04. Arguing in public is not ok and should be taken to direct messages. Discussions are welcome but must follow all of our rules.
  • 2.05. Posting of personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.) of other users or yourself, is not allowed regardless of the circumstances.
  • 2.06. English is the only language to be used outside of language-specific text channels.
  • 2.07. Spamming reactions on messages is not permissible.
  • 2.08. The channel #discord-suggestions is only for suggestions directly affecting Discord, all other suggestions go on the forums. Please keep in mind the default format for a suggestion, it is mandatory to follow it, otherwise it will be ignored. If you suggest an emoji, provide a high-quality image for its use. Chatter will be deleted and continued ignorance of this rule will result in a warning and/or kick/ban.
  • 2.09. For bot commands, please use either the #bot-commands or the #music-bot-commands. No other channels are meant for using the bots.
  • 2.10. The use of Ascii art or anything similar is not permitted with the exception of /shrug and /tableflip commands. This is considered to be spam and can be annoying.
