Why do we need chat guidelines?
Chat guidelines are in place to ensure that all players have an enjoyable experience communicating with their fellow PK Players.  They’re posted here for clarity for players, moderators and PM Staff.

What are the Chat Guidelines?

What will happen if I violate these guidelines?
If you violate these guidelines, our team of moderators will issue chat suspensions.  They can start as low as 1 minute, and can go up to 1 day depending on severity and/or repeated offenses.  If you are a repeat offender, your account will be reviewed for harsher sanctions, including account suspension or termination.

What if I feel a moderator is wrong?
If you feel like you were suspended in error, the message you receive will contain a report number.  E-mail help@parallelmafia.com with this number, and it will be reviewed by our staff.
