This applies to regular players AND administrators.

Safe zone camping: Camping near Safe Zones is prohibited.
Building a base so that you can engage players entering or exiting a safe zone is considered camping and may result in your base being removedwithout compensation.
Spawn zone camping: Camping spawn zones - from any distance and especially from bases is prohibited and may result in a ban.
Similar to Safe Zone Camping this may result in your base being removedwithout compensation.
Do NOT impersonate staff.
Admin Events: Do not engage, block or interfere with an admin event if you are not part of it. If you are not part of the event you may spectate the event (but you still could get killed).
A group can have 7 players or less in it, if the admins log in and see your group is larger than this you'll be asked to reduce it.
English only in Side Chat.
Abusing admins will not be tolerated. Repeated abuse of admins will result in a penalty such as being kicked or banned.
If you genuinely think an Admin is abusing, record with video, come to the TeamSpeak and talk to Vistor/Mouldie/Terror_Nova. Do not start spamming the chat.
DoD servers are SEMI-MILITARIZED. This means that there is a high level of military-grade weapons. For a noob this will mean you will need to spend a lot of time:
Anyone causing unnecessary drama or being abusive in game will be kicked from server.
Scrounging - weapons and vehicles and selling them to increase your pop tabs and respect
Dying - recognize that there will be players who have spent a great deal of time on the servers and have a lot of pop tabs and respect and can afford to buy the high powered weapons. Remember: You may have played Exile on other servers but in starting on DoD servers you are a noob. Also remember that everyone knows where the good loot spawns so do not complain about dying.
“Spam Killing”: Repeated mass killing of players with attack helicopters (e.g., completed missions) is not permitted.
Combat Logging: Combat logging is not permitted.
This includes both if you are engaged with another player or AI.
Vehicle towing/sling loading for combat is prohibited, for example:
Do not tow a repair vehicle to keep yourself from being blown up.
Do not tow an ammo truck to keep yourself from running out of ammo.
Shooting from a sling loaded armed vehicle under a helicopter.
Do not buy ammo or fuel or repair trucks and base them in a safe zone. They will be deleted.
Do not engage missions or players at missions from on top of your base. If you want to do a mission, go do it.
Do not engage players with armed vehicles from the top of your base, you are permitted to engage from ground level (inside your perimeter walls).
No logging out in enemy base at any time.
No dropping vehicles on bases from helicopters (or kamikaze attacks).
Players must disengage from a base raid at least 5 minutes before restart and be 500m away from the base being raided. Firing at the base is not allowed. (Raiders need to keep track of time)
No raiding Admin bases.(Admins can't raid your base either)
Engaging Admin bases in PVP/Warfare is allowed.
Safe Zone Rules
Do not steal from another player or vehicle in the safe zone.
Do not destroy vehicles in the safe zone.
If someone steals your vehicle outside the safe zone, you cannot steal it back inside the safe zone.
Using the Safe Zone to retreat from combat is not allowed.
Do not destroy any trader buildings.
Do not troll or spam while in the safe zone.
If a player dies in the safezone do not loot their body.
Safe Zone Exception - all vehicles left in the safe zone automatically unlock at server restart. For the first 5 minutes after restart these vehicles are also “fair game” for being sold.
Territories and Building
Only two (2) territories is allowed per group.
The base of your flag your flag must be accessible - it cannot be under the ground or below a floor (e.g. hanger). You cannot place your flag base in such a way that the flag cannot be stolen. If you are unsure ask an Admin.
Your flag must be protected by 3 walls, 1 door and a roof (basically a room), the door must be accessible for players to grind. You may not cover your flag base with any construction item. How difficult you make it leading up to the flag room is your choice (e.g., the flag room may be inside a main building but all walls must be accessible).
The maximum building height is 25 meters. There will be no compensation if offending base parts are removed by an Admin.
No blocking roads with anything.
All distances are measured from the outside radius of the various zones (e.g,. That thin outside circle around a trader)
You must be more than the distances below.
From a spawn zone - 1000 meters
From a safe zone - 1000 meters
From an airfield - 1500 meters
From a Major Military Area - 1000 meters (Example: Any military area that is a large complex with many buildings for loot. Any area that is frequent for PVP.)
From a public cement mixer - 250 meters
The circle markers on the map are a guide as to where you cannot build. Building just outside these markers does not mean your base is legal, still check the distance you are from certain areas as you could still be too close.
You may not build in high-loot areas.
Remember: If you are in doubt about where you are building contact an administrator
Chernarus Redux: No building in or near Altar Facility, Pobeda Dam, Belota Train Station, Green Mountain, churches
Lythium: Airfields, mosques (black squares on map)
Extended Base Mod: You can only have a limit of 20 per base and all building pieces are to be placed at ground level and not floating. Ammo/refuel crates are allowed to be high in your base as long as they are not floating.
Building in Debug: Done at your own risk. Do not complain if your base disappears.
The owner reserves the right to delete base parts that have been removed from the prices list/loot tables. (e.g., a television, lawn chairs, etc.)
You may not place any storage item (e.g., safe) outside of you territory.
Exile / ArmA Bugs: There will be no compensation for items lost due to Exile / ArmA bugs nor admin teleports for your character.
Parking on wood or concrete floors is done at your own risk.
Random Spawn Vehicle: Random spawned vehicles will be deleted after restart unless you purchase a code lock for them and claim ownership.
