General Server Rules

Post by Arrows73 »

[1. General]
  1. You are responsible for the behaviour of your own account/identity in our community. If someone else breaks the rules using your account, you will still be punished for it.
  2. We expect you to behave normal and act friendly towards other players. Players who repeatedly act against our community values will be removed from the whitelist.
  3. Any action performed against the community with ill intent will result in a permanent ban.
  4. Evading or attempting to evade a temporary ban on our services will lead to a permanent ban.
  5. Every member, if banned, can write an unban appeal. However, the decision to be unbanned remains up to the staff team.

[2. Role Play]
  1. Role-playing currently takes place in the main dimension, but will eventually have its own dimension.
  2. Be respectful towards each other when participating in role play. Don't abuse the story for your own gain, or act in a manner that contradicts the story.
  3. Role playing is meant to be a cooperative experience: everyone participates in the same story, no one is allowed to create their own separate story. However, all players are free to chose their own role and can't be forced to take a specific role by others.
  4. You cannot use role playing as an excuse to break other server rules.
  5. Please try to make use of proximity chat as much as possible when participating in role play:

    Code: Select all

    /p <message>

[3. Warning Points]
  1. We use a system of warning points to determine what players should get banned.
  2. Players can get up to 10 warning points, after which they will get banned.
  3. The amount of warning points earned is different for each offense, based on:
    - The intent of the offending player
    - The severity of the damage caused
    - The relationship of the player to the broader community
  4. Warning points are stored internally and are not viewable to players.
  5. You can ask a staffmember to know how many warning points you currently have.

[4. Building and Structures]
  1. Griefing structures is not alllowed.
  2. Do not build any offensive or stupid symbols (swastika, penis, etc.)
  3. Do not grief world-generated structures, with the exception of mineshafts and dungeons. You are alllowed to live in a village and modify it, but you can't destroy it. Nether fortresses can be modified after asking permission from the staff team.
  4. Do not lock portals in the nether. It would be appreciated if you don't lock overworld portals either.
  5. Do not build within the nearby area of another base. Use common sense and consult with each other when you are close neighbours with others.

[5. Cheating, Modding, Hacking, & Bug Exploiting]
  1. Cheating and hacking are not allowed.
  2. Exploiting vanilla bugs is allowed, unless the bug will duplicate items.
  3. Exploiting plugin bugs is not allowed, and they should be reported when discovered.
  4. The usage of any mod that gives you advantages over other players is not allowed.
  5. A list of mods/mod types that are allowed:
    - Optifine (and other client performance improvement mods)
    - Minimap mods (as long as they only show the same information as dynmap, without players)
    - Statistic HUD mods (for player + entities)

[6. Stealing]
  1. Stealing is not allowed in any situation.
  2. This also counts for entities. Killing entities in another person's base is considered stealing.
  3. Do not break someone's crops without asking permission.
  4. Do not take someone's items when they die, unless it is for safekeeping. This also counts when you killed the player.

[7. Killing]
  1. You are allowed to kill anyone who has PvP turned on. PvP can be disabled by using /pvp.
  2. Do not attack admins or moderators when they are taking care of staff duties.
  3. You cannot spam-kill a player without their consent. Give them time to disable pvp after killing them once.
  4. Spam-killing with consent is only allowed as long as it doesn't cause spam in the chat (see rule 10.2).

[8. Pranking]
  1. Pranking is only allowed if you sign up at the prank board.
  2. Sign up by putting your name and base coords on the prank board. You can't have a worldguard region if you join the prank games!
  3. You can only be pranked at the places you listed, not at any other buildings.
  4. If you prank someone, you need to leave a sign with your nickname.
  5. The prank must be harmless. Anything that is broken must be restored.
  6. You no longer own the materials used to prank someone.
  7. Don't break valuable things (diamond blocks, beacons, etc.).
  8. Don't mess with redstone.
  9. We don't want to be a buzz-kill, so if you have to break a rule to execute your prank and you know the pranked player is fine with it, it will not be punished. It is the pranker's responsibility to estimate if the pranked player will appreciate it.
  10. Traps are allowed only if the target ends up getting their items back.
  11. These rules also apply to clans. If a clan has a base and they want it to be prankable, it can be listed on the prank board.
  12. Pranking any place that isn't listed on the board is considered griefing.

[9. Shopping District]
  1. Each player may only own 1 shop at the shopping district. This means you can't use an alternate account to get a 2nd plot.
  2. You can't sell your own shop to other players.
  3. The height limit for shop plots is 70 blocks up and 30 blocks down.
  4. Do not join plots together.
  5. Your shop must not exceed 20 combined item frames and armor stands. This is to reduce fps drops around the shopping district.
  6. After getting a plot, you have 2 weeks to get it built and running. Otherwise it will be removed.
  7. Shops will be removed if the owner is inactive for 20 days.
  8. Shops will be removed if they are empty and not restocked for 20 days.
    The last 3 rules will only be strictly enforced if the shopping district is too full for new players to get a shop. Otherwise, we will be lenient in enforcing these rules.

[10. Chat]
  1. The chat is in English only. Please use /tell or other private chats for other languages.
  2. Insulting and/or spamming is not allowed on any of our platforms.
  3. Do not abuse caps lock.
  4. Do not give out personal information about other players.
  5. Do not advertise for other Minecraft severs on any of our platforms, in any way. Even casually mentioning another server by name is not appreciated, unless they are in a completely different category (e.g. Hypixel or 2b2t)
  6. These rules are always in effect, even when you might be the only player online. You never know who is watching on Discord.
  7. All the chatting rules also apply on our Discord Server.

[11. Events]
  1. When playing events, any rule that does not conflict with the goal of the event still counts.
  2. Do not tower above the highest block of the map in Skywars.
  3. The maximum offline time in UHC is 15 minutes.

[12. Inactiveness/Banned players]
  1. If you become inactive, we will not remove your stuff; with the exception your shop in the shopping district.
  2. If you become inactive, you will not be unwhitelisted.
  3. If you know in advance that you will be inactive for a longer period of time, please inform us.
  4. For temporarily banned players, the rules above holds true.
  5. For permanently banned players, your stuff will be taken from you and removed.

[13. AFK]
  1. AFKing is allowed on the server.
  2. This might change in the future, based on multiple factors:
    - Lag caused by excessive entity amounts, redstone mechanics, or other causes related to AFKing.
    - Unbalance in resource amounts between AFKing players and regular players.
    - Incompatibility of AFKing with plugin mechanics.
    Please keep this in account and do not be surprised if this rule changes in the future.

[14. Early Access]
  1. While the server is in early access, you should expect to encounter plugin bugs. These can alter your gameplay in unexpected ways. Please keep this in mind while playing.
  2. Please report any bugs you find to the staff team.
  3. If using a bug can be avoided, exploiting it is punishable.
  4. Bugs that cannot be avoided will not be punishable.
"No Sacrifice, No Victory."
