GameTracker uses a variety of measures to ensure quality server listings. We may derank a server (remove from ranking), ban a server, or simply revert an action on the page. Any action we take is the result of a careful review of the facts.


Actions:

Derank - This disables ranking. A message appears on your server page. It will also show your rank as "NR" rank (or sometimes a very high rank) and put you at the end of the ranking.
Ban - This deletes the server from the site and prevents it from being added back.
Revert - Depends, but typically involves removing something from the server details block.


Reasons:

- More than 3 fake players or undetected bots.
- Excessive idlers padding stats.
- Abusing page management features, such as adding links to game torrents.
- Unsupported game
- Duplicate server pages
- Trade, idle, and achievement maps on TF2 & CSGO
- Use of player/rank 'boosting' services - Boosting rank services

Bans may become permanent if...

- Repeat offenses.
- Intent to hide (blend in) the bots.
- The entire IP was blocked


Some things we don't care about

Changing the location flag
Free speech - We will only remove content like spam, personal attacks, pornography, illegal content, other items at our discretion.
Personal vendettas - We do not care how much you dislike their server, their admins, their country, or anything else.
Using "your" server name
