Thank You for your interest in the Gaming Gods community!
Please take a moment to review the following Terms and Rules in order to use our forums and other related services.
“Us”, “We”, “Our”, “The community” all refers to Gaming Gods as a group, as a community. We are not responsible for any mistakes you may have made with our community and/or service(s).
“Server Manager”, “Community Director”, “Founder”, “Staff Members”, “Management Team”, refers to the Gaming Gods staff team, and should not be mistaken with any other community’s staff team.
Our goal from day one of the founding of Gaming Gods was to be a non-profit gaming community where we put our community members first. To this day, that still stands. Our goal is to ensure that all of our community members are welcomed with opening arms, regardless of their background or where they’ve come from. We also strongly believe that our services, such as our Garry’s Mod and Rust servers, should never have any type of pay-wall or pay-to-win aspects that make it unfair to other players. We also strongly believe in having an administration team that is here to assist you, no matter what issues you may be having with our community.
Our team’s doors are always open, from a moderator’s standpoint up to the Community Director. You choose who you wish to speak to and bring the attention of something to our team, and we’ll assist you — no questions asked. We will never make you jump through hoops to get the answer to a question that you may have.
