When interacting with DRB, it is important to observe all rules and guidelines at all times. These have been established to ensure a positive and safe experience for all community members.
Please be advised that rules, guidelines, disciplinary actions, and laws may be subject to change at the discretion of the staff team.

We recommend keeping notifications on for the #📌| notice-board to receive official announcements from staff.

Pings are typically limited to a maximum of one per week to minimize user disruption.

Please note that server logs are continuously monitored for rule violations and abuse. However, we strongly encourage the community to actively participate in keeping everyone safe by familiarizing themselves with the rules and promptly reporting any rule violations or instances of abuse.

Personal Accountability.
