Rules have been changed as per TMW Team decision. In practice, not much has changed. Some rules about social behaviour are now all categorised under the TMW Social Convention. The rule about English in public is now more relaxed and allows other languages to be spoken when you know everyone around you can understand (e.g. Guild meetings, friends playing together without anyone around, etc.).

Hello, just a bump to say that I edited rule #1 text (with no alteration on meaning).

Previous: Do not bot.
Current: Do not AFK bot.

This is not a rule change, but a clarification of meaning.
As per TMWT Decision, because previously it could be misleading.
