Official Newbie Helper and Moderator Rules & Regulations here.
Note: this is an unfinished list, more can be added to or changed at any time.


NEWBIE CHANNEL RULES:
1. Obviously no spamming or insulting, obscene talk/language.
2. The purpose of Newbie Help channel is just that, newbie help. It does not matter if a newbie is asking a question or not at that time, it is still ONLY newbie help. It is up to the moderator(s) in the channel to keep it that way.
3. Answering questions and helping newbies comes first and foremost! If someone asks a question, then answer that question before you talk about anything else. And if you do not know the answer then say you don't know instead of not saying anything or continueing to chat(they might think you're ignoring them)!

MARKET CHANNEL RULES:
1. Obviously no spamming or insulting, obscene talk/language.
2. The purpose of market channel is to buy and sell and get information about buying and selling (ie. price checks). When the conversation goes off course, the resulting consequences are at the discretion of the moderator(s) in the channel.

BROADCASTING RULES:
1. All big events that have never been done before have to be cleared with me first. So send me a PM, telling me what day/time you will do it, and if I approve it then you can go ahead and do the event.
2. Smaller events, such as manhunt's do not have to be approved by me, HOWEVER, I would like to limit them to 3 per hour. A good question is how do you know if there was 3 already. Well, you really don't have any way of knowing for sure, but you can ask other NH's if there have been any. And if no one knows, then it is ok to do the event.
3. Events like Trivia Contests should be done on a specific channel(or area in the game), and should NOT be BC'd messages except for the beginning and conclusion of the event, or any other important message concerning it. But the questions and such should NOT be bc'd.

DENOOBIFYING RULES:
1. Only denoob someone if they have "offtopic'd" more than one time, no statute of limitations.
2. Things such as (but not limited to) modbashing, gamebashing, or giving out private dev info does not even require a warning, you can just denoob them as soon as you see them doing it.
3. Things such as (but not limited to) spamming, argumentative/disruptive behavior, ingame secrets, or obscene language can result in a denoob if warnings and/or punishments do not stop the behavior, or result in worse behavior.
4. Denoobings should be discussed with other online mods first to get a consensus if at all possible.

WARNINGS
1. Overall, we should #rule or #or (overrule leaves a log, rule does not) first, also a pm or mpm is considered a warning as well.
2. In a channel, when multiple people are needing a warning, a public channel warning to the channel in general IS considered an official warning.
3. Things such as (but not limited to) modbashing, gamebashing, or private dev info, do not even require a warning, you can just mute/denoob/kick/boot them as soon as you see them do it.
4. Things such as (but not limited to) spamming, argumentative/disruptive behavior, ingame secrets, or obscene language for first-time offenders should get a warning first. If they don't listen and do it again, they do NOT need more warnings.
5. Repeat troublemakers: These people do NOT need a warning, there is a HUGE difference between the random offense or unintended offense (which will get a warning unless drastic as mentioned above) and the repeat troublemaker. Repeat offenders with a pattern of (intentional ?) rule breaking will be punished accordingly and without warning upon commission.

PKING RULES:
1. If someone specifically ASKS to be made Player-Killable, then you may make him PKable, but they must give you a reason and it must be a valid reason. If you see them abusing something because they are pkable, then unpk them immediately.
2. If you want to make someone PKable for a contest, that is fine too but ONLY if he/she agrees to it!
3. If someone has broken a rule on purpose and has flammed/spammed you and others in public, then you may make this person PKable. However you MUST also post on the abuse forum the reason you made this person pkable along with the chat log of their offenses.
