Please ensure you familiarise yourself with our forum rules before posting and check back periodically for updates.  

Moderators and Staff are here to ensure that the Hutch Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

Disciplinary action will typically take one of the following forms, dependent on severity:

  • Written or system-generated warning
  • Formal Final Warning
  • Temporary Ban
  • Permanent Ban

Members, please read our forum rules before you begin posting:

  1. We will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, harassment, name & shame, or purposeless inflammatory posts. Any abuse towards our Staff or Moderators, in any form, will not be tolerated. 

  2. We will not tolerate inappropriate, sexual, vulgar, discriminatory or offensive language of any sort, this includes homophobia, transphobia, racism or any other language intended to cause offence to a specific group. Simulated, insinuated or abbreviated swearing is also not allowed. Like the games Hutch creates, this server is also family friendly, so please do not try to bypass the profanity filter that is in place. Moderators and admins have a final say in what is and isn't inappropriate.

  3. Racist language will not be tolerated and will result in an instant permanent ban. The same also applies to sexual harassment and the posting of sexually explicit content.

  4. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.

  5. Please refrain from posting 'spam'. A post will be considered as Spam if it's made with no relation to the forum Category or the game's content.

  6. Multiple or repeated posting of the same thread or topic is not allowed. "Bumping" a thread is also prohibited. 

  7. When posting in the forums you must not misrepresent yourself if you are not an official Moderator or Staff member. Do not deliberately and/or maliciously spread false information about Hutch, their Moderators or employees.

  8. Discussion or the promotion of products that allow in-game manipulation are strictly prohibited. This includes, but isn't limited to: free gold/currency sites, illegal activities, drug references, emulators, music/intellectual property piracy and any discussions on how to run any Hutch titles outside officially supported platforms.

  9. Discussing the abuse or exploitation of service platform, payment, refund, rating or similar systems is strictly prohibited.

  10. Users are permitted only one forum account. Creating multiple accounts may result in a permanent ban of all accounts.

  11. We welcome the use of any language on these forums, however replies from Staff and Moderators will be given in English.

  12. Do not advertise, promote or link to user-run contests related to Hutch without prior written consent from Hutch.

  13. Forum rules apply to private messages. We do not monitor private messages, but we do investigate all allegations of PM abuse.

  14. Always post in the correct categories and sub-categories. 

  15. If you are banned from the game temporarily, you still have a right to have a forum account. If you are permanently banned from the game, you may also be permanently banned from the forums.

  16. You are responsible for abiding by Moderator and Staff warnings and infractions against you, within a thread or made via PM. Ignoring warnings and/or infractions given to yourself or other forum members can result in further infractions or a ban of your forum account. 

  17. You may not discuss publicly any (disciplinary) actions taken by Staff, Moderators or Customer Support such as banning, closing forum threads, deleting forum posts / threads etc. Posting publicly any private messages or emails, regardless of topic, that you have received from either Staff, Moderators or Customer Support is prohibited.

  18. Should you be banned from the forum, you may not create new accounts, or have someone post on your behalf, to circumvent the ban.

  19. In the interest of privacy and safety, please do not make available any real-life information about yourself, another forum user, player or member of staff.

  20. The sharing of game content that's not yet released or been announced through official Hutch channels may result in a ban. All leaked content will be removed without warning.

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the Terms of Service (TOS) and Privacy Policy of Hutch:

Thank you for taking time to read the forum rules. We hope you enjoy posting in our forums and interacting with the Hutch community and staff.
