sniping's definition is different from person to person... but basically it's an act of, intentionally or not, attacking something after someone else attacked it, which arrive at the same tick or sooner.
So if I send an attack at someone 4 ETA... then u send urs at that same person, 3 ETA, u're sniping me. Most of the time it's considered as annoying and may lead to war.

To clarify, sniping is not against any technical rule. It is simply something that other players perceive as an act of malice or aggression. If you attacked a target, and the next tick you notice someone else attacked it too and will get there before you, then according to this description you would have been "sniped". When it happens to you, chances are that you will understand why it is frowned upon.
You will not suffer any admin punishment specifically for sniping.
