Inappropriate language or behaviour is a Rule of RuneScape that fits under both the Respect and Security categories.[1] You must not use any language that could be considered offensive, racist, obscene or otherwise inappropriate. This includes swearing. You should not create an account with an offensive or inappropriate username.[2]

If you are called a 'noob', you should just ignore it.[3]

More information can be found in the RuneScape Game Guide.

What is NOT allowed

Note that breaking this rule is not limited to the following.[4]

  • Discussion of recreational drugs
  • Sexually explicit language
  • Solicitation
  • Racism or other prejudice
  • Threatening
  • Blackmail
  • Swearing
  • Offensive username[2]
  • Asking for a boyfriend or girlfriend in the games[5]
  • Mis-spelling an offensive word to disguise it[6]
  • Spamming / Flooding the Chat window[7]

What IS allowed

  • Calling someone a "noob"[3]
  • Making threats to one's character, not in real life (i.e. PvP)[9]
  • Flooding the chat window, but only if there is not a chance it could impair others' gameplay[9]

Why this rule exists

We have this rule to maintain a pleasant environment in our games. For many people it's not much fun playing if there is someone else being rude or offensive, so please consider others when chatting. Also please remember that not everyone playing is the same age or from the same background, so they may be more offended or upset than you expect.
