Refunds Policy - Donations
All transactions sent to GGS.SX via our donation page are as implied 'donations'. Donations are NON-REFUNDABLE. Transactions cannot be altered, transferred or substituted after the final transaction.
By attempting to reverse or dispute a transaction made, GGS.SX will automatically ban the associated Steam and Paypal account from our services to protect GGS.SX until the claim is withdrawn by the offending account holder. If such cases are lodged and are closed by Paypal not as the result of the offending account holder reversing the dispute, GGS.SX reserves the right to refuse service to the offending account for maliciously attempting to defraud GGS.SX and hinder our sites normal operations. By submitting a payment to this site, you agree to these terms.
For more information, please read the Paypal User Agreement
Donation Tiers & Honor Policy
All tiers on our donation page
are as listed and are permanent. They are not a subscription but a single one off donation which is recorded forever (as long as GGS.SX is operating). If a user wishes to make multiple transactions, all previous transactions will stack to unlock higher donor tiers.
This policy has been continuous since 2013 under our previous community Resentment Industries
and we choose to honor all transactions ever received rather than to charge an arbitrary monthly fee to receive donor incentives. Unlike many other communities, GGS.SX does not offer cash packages, sell staff ranks, create custom jobs, incentivise microtransactions or offer other game breaking advantages to donors which we recognise our competitors will do shamelessly. We do this because we value our donors for making our servers possible and wish to not gouge the wallets of players dishonestly.
We respect the right to change, adapt, or remove perks offered on our donor page at any time.
What are donations used for?
All donations received are used to fund the continued development of our site, gameservers, pay our developers and pay our server hosting costs / various operational costs in which donors sponsor.
What is not ok to say on the forum?
Anything is acceptable to be posted to the forum provided that it is not:
Unreasonable harassment against a user,
graphic content that would not be suitable for minors,
promote or endorse suicide,
sharing the personal circumstance / private information of unconsenting individuals,
releasing / sharing copyrighted works without author permission, or
promote the use or sale of malicious hacking tools.
Anything else is totally fine unless the published content is violating Australian law.
What is not ok to say in the shoutbox?
Normally the shoutbox is uncensored however anything which is unacceptable to say on the forum cannot be said in the shoutbox and will either be removed or edited to say either the opposite or something silly at the discretion of staff.
As this site and associated services are hosted for free and is maintained by volunteers, lambasting about GGS.SX on this site and services is forbidden.
It's not that constructive criticism isn't welcome, it's that saying something without justification isn't worth our time. If you don't like GGS.SX, please play somewhere else.
Attention Seeking / Drama Policy
Content for the purpose of creating drama and seeking sympathy / attention will be altered and or destroyed (if possible) at the discretion of staff. Offenders who wish do this though grand exit will be shown the door not to return. We don't want drama on our services and in creating it, offenders will be exiled.
Conflicts of Interest
Users who are staff members or own Garry’s Mod servers are ineligible to be staff on GGS.SX.
This clause does not have exceptions. Its purpose is to protect our server.
When a user is marked as exiled on this site, it's because the steam user associated with the account has attempted or have conducted malicious activity against this community. Malicious being frauding, scamming, spamming, botting, cheating, harassing, sabotaging, terrorising and evading exiled status with alt accounts. Exiled status is either automatically applied via the Paypal IPN for lodging a dispute or chargeback on a transaction or is manually assigned at the discretion of GGS staff. Exiled status may also be applied to users upon request from our various partners. Users who are exiled may also be refused service by our various partners at their own discretion.
Exiled status cannot be applied for breaking ingame rules for RP related incidences
such as combat logging, RDM or Metagaming.
If you believe that it has been applied by mistake, unjustly or are regretful for being exiled, appeals can be made and should be directed here
If you are banned for breaking ingame server rules, bans are NEVER permanent. All appeals should be directed here
