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will automatically ban the associated Steam and Paypal account from our services to protect GGS.SX until the claim is withdrawn by the offending account holder.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.
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.

This clause does not have exceptions. Its purpose is to protect our server from potential conflicts of interest and hinderance.
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.

Exiled status can either be automatically applied via the Paypal IPN for lodging a dispute or chargeback on a transaction or 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 exiled status has been applied by mistake, unjustly or just regretful for being exiled, appeals can be made and should be directed here
