For the most part, everyone is free to enjoy Skyrates in any way they wish. However, there are a few things that we, as a community of players, have agreed (voluntarily) to be bound by. Committing the "sins" described below, could get you tossed out a cargo bay door without a parachute. Comments or questions on these Seven Deadly Sins of Skyrates should be directed to the Discussion page.
- You shalt not use a second skyrate, known as an Alt, short for "Alternate character", which you control to gain influence for your faction, nor to decrease the influence of a faction you are competing against.
- You shalt not attempt to impersonate another skyrate on the radio or in the forum.
- You shalt not use inappropriate language or have inappropriate conversations on the radio or in the forum. (As a rule-of-thumb, limit your comments to a 'G-rating'.)
- You shalt not use a second skyrate you control to spy on another faction's forum or radio conversation.
- You shalt not intentionally take advantage of a bug in the game to create or gain an advantage in the game.
- You shalt not harass another skyrate.
- You shalt not disrespect the Devs or their efforts in providing this free game for our enjoyment.
