5. Extra Explanation

1.f

$: Insiding - The following actions count as insiding: Destroying any tribe property without permission of all members. Killing any tribe property without other members' permission. Destroying stuff from the inside when you got kicked. Taking stuff with you when you get kicked. Owners are NOT allowed to inside either, however they may kick anyone they would like to. The Owner does not have full ownership of all tribe belongings if the tribe has more than 4 members. If 75% of a tribe with more than 4 members have agreed on kicking someone or switching the owner, it must be done. If the tribe owner has not logged on for 2 or more days, any tribe can choose a new owner if more than half of the members agree to it.
If a member got kicked from the tribe, he has the right to receive his personal tames.

3.a

°: Do not team with any tribes: You ARE allowed to do boss fights and trade with other tribes. However, the following actions count as teaming: Attacking a base with 2 different tribes, defending a base with 2 different tribes, Doing OSD’s with 2 different tribes. You are also NOT allowed to arrange raids, so no cluster attacks by multiple tribes on the same tribe. Pvp is also tribe related and you must attack every other tribe else than your own. You are also not allowed to be in 2 different tribes at the same time.

The following actions count as third partying: Sniping tames or players, soaking the fob, blowing any structures of the fobbed tribe or the fobbers.

3.b

§: Do Not Mesh Bite: Trying to bite through walls or ceiling is NOT allowed. So keep an eye open for aggressive dinos because they will mesh bite. The attempt of meshbiting will also be punished. So pay attention to where you bite or hit with your tame. Hitting structures through the mesh with a mek or any other creature is also forbidden. Tek sword punching and tek gauntlets may also not destroy structures through thin walls.

4.b

~: Commitment during raids: If there is a tribe fobbing/being fobbed, you may only be a third party when you clear the enemy’s fob. After clearance of the fob you MUST attack the originally fobbed base. As soon as the tribe that is raiding calls out that it is a party fob, you must not destroy the fob and you are free to pvp. The tribe that is fobbing has ALL rights to attack you, and you may not fight back when you do not counter fob. 

4.c

£: Difference Tunneling and Fortniting: There is a clear difference between Fortniting and tunneling. Fortniting IS allowed, and Tunneling is NOT allowed. A Fortnite is a structure that you build to gain foundation control and reach higher areas. The fortnite may not be fully emerged (closed) and turrets must be able to shoot/hit all players on the fortnite. Tunneling is a structure that you build to LOS (Line Of Sight) turrets and that is NOT allowed. Blocking turrets from shooting with ANY type of structure is forbidden (except for rafts and platform saddles).

4.d

§: forcefield abuse: for example changing the size of the forcefield rapidly to allow / prevent turrets from shooting or to stuck players / dinos

4.f

%: Inactive fob: a fob is inactive as soon as there is no action happening against the tribe being fobbed for around 3 hours. Sniping does not count. If you leave the raid you have to destroy your fob.
