    I'm just asking to sort an argument with another player.

    Harpoon Gaming Rules
    "NO Using the frying pan, the melee weapon aka Panning."

    It's a rule so don't do it, besides there's a plug-in on the server that mutes the panning sounds which is why that rule is in place if i'm correct.

    Hello @Kakolisgay,

    While it does say on the ruleboard that panning is against the rules, it's an outdated rule. We have since implemented a plugin on our servers that blocks the pan sound for everyone apart from person using it.

    So to answer your question, it is not a valid rule as long as the plugin works.

    What Nimajin said is correct. The rule itself is a legacy rule. It only remains in the event the plugin breaks, there's still a foundation to avoid pan griefing.
