Thank you for playing JellyRO! Online game communities are at their best when everyone is respectful and fair. Therefore, we ask that all members conduct themselves accordingly when using the JellyRO game client, JellyRO forums, JellyRO TeamSpeak server, and official JellyRO social media pages. Our aim is to provide a friendly and fun environment for everyone.

The guidelines and rules listed here broadly define what behavior is expected as a member of this community and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the staff shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Member access to the services provided at JellyRO is a privilege and not a right.

We reserve the right to:

  • Suspend your access to these services at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines.
  • Evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category. Severity of punishment may depend on the offender's history of transgressions.
  • Change or modify these guidelines at our discretion and without notice.

Concerns or questions on clarification may be communicated in game, via forums or through support ticket. When in doubt, don’t do it!

Repeated severe violations of the rules may result in being IP banned from one or more JellyRO services. In some cases this means a player is not allowed back on one or more JellyRO services. Any account used that belongs to another player will be suspended until the rightful owner claims it and changes the password.

This policy is not language-restrictive. Language that falls under this policy will always be subject to the repercussions listed, whether it is inappropriate in English or any other language.

The bottom line is that we want JellyRO to be a fun, safe, and stress free environment for all players. When interacting with other JellyRO players, you will encounter those who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be personally offensive, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. We’ve done everything we can to make this a great community – now it’s up to you!
