Depending on the seriousness of the offense you may be MAC banned before you reach offense number 3.

5. Punishment Evasion
Punishments that are assigned to members are given to further better the MaplScape community. We strive to maintain a stable and fair environment. With that being said, those who evade will not be dealt with lightly; if a member feels as if they were wrongly punished, they can go about it the right way by appealing and constructively stating their case. If one evades, it will result in a ban or an IP-Ban, depending on the magnitude of the situation.

Failure to comply will result in the seller being permanently banned, followed with an IP-Ban the second time around. As for the buyer, a 72-hour ban with a complete bank wipe will be arranged, granted it was the first offense. Any offence here-after will result in a permanent ban.
MapleScape Disclaimer: If caught/reported attempting to Real-world trade can be punished by staff. Punishments of attempts may be taken more lightly if the staff member so chooses, but usually they will be the same punishments as actually committing the offence

12. Player versus Player (PvP)
MapleScape is not held responsible for members who have lost, disconnected etc., while in the wilderness. The wilderness, or 'No man's land', if you will, for the most part, has no restrictions; hence why it can be referred to as 'No man's land'. However, we do have a few rules:

a. PvP-Farming will be an automatic Permanent ban with no chance of appeal on all accounts involved, followed up by an IP-Ban.

b. Luring is allowed for the most part. The few exceptions to this rule are members cannot attempt to lure via world yell or servers clan chats such as MapleScape and Help. Attempting to lure staff by asking for help whilst in the wilderness or anything else that involves blatant deception will result in a ban. 
c. Ragging is prohibited in Edge, MapleScape's definition of a ragger is one who consistently goes out of their way to disrupt someone's experience in the wilderness by attacking them repeatedly. All ragging reports must be reported with sufficient video proof. First offenders will be jailed, followed by a 24-hour ban, with an ending result of a permanent ban.
13. Yell System
a. Flaming, flame-baiting, and trolling via world yell will not be tolerated. On top of the standardized punishment (see rule 1), the wrongdoer's right to world yell will be revoked temporarily or indefinitely, depending on the severity of the text.
b. Luring members over world yell is prohibited and can result in the revoking of access to world yell temporarily or indefinitely, depending on the severity of the text.
