Welcome to our server! We hope you enjoy your time here with us This guide is for new players to get familiar with how we do things here. The more you know, the less chance of problems or frustration arising!
It is each player's responsibility to read and understand our rules. Failure to do so will result in the staff taking disciplinary actions against you. The rules are simple:
No Griefing, No Stealing, No Raiding There's quite a few ways that people grief others. No Altering of other player's builds is allowed without that player giving you permission. Follow all instructions left on signs in that person's area. If you accidentally damage something, report it to staff immediately. This includes item frames!!!Failure to report accidental damage will be treated as if it was intentional, which can get you banned.
No Blackmailing, No Scamming, No Unfair Play Do not attempt to scam or blackmail our members. If you feel that you are being a victim of blackmailing or scamming, report it to a staff member immediately. Attempt to capture the information through screen shots so we have proof the person was attempting this type of harassment.
No Hacking/Cheating Hacking and block/item duplication or any other exploitation of glitches and bugs is strictly prohibited. No sand or gravel generators are allowed, or dragon egg machines. Infinite villager breeding facilities are also not approved since these cause excessive server side lag! Cobblestone and Stone generators are fine to build and use.
Any client side modification that gives you an unfair advantage over other players is considered cheating. These include but are not limited to speed, xray, sneak, step, and other hacks.
Keep Chat Clean No chat spamming, CAPS TALKING, profanity (including abbreviated forms), drama or sensitive discussions (religion and politics spring to mind immediately). Keep general chat family friendly. We do have small children that play here.
If someone (anyone) asks you to stop talking about something, it's best to just take it to private chat channels or private message.
No Begging or Whining Seems straight forward enough but here's the break down. Don't ask for free stuff. Don't ask for spawned stuff. Don't ask for hand outs. Don't ask for others to buy you stuff. Be self sufficient. This is a survival server. Go survive!
No Discrimination/Sexual Harassment/Threats We don't care what race, gender, or sexual orientation you are, and nobody else should either. Treating others badly for no other reason than that they are different from you is not acceptable here. Along with that, we will not allow sexual harassment to take place here or threats of bodily harm to someone.
No advertising other sites We pay the bill for this server to provide a nice environment for our members to come together to enjoy the game, NOT for someone to advertise another server to steal our player base. No linking of other servers IP address, names or websites will be tolerated. Do not mention or discuss other servers in chat, on the website or in ventrilo.
No Impersonating Staff Do not portray yourself as any member of our staff under any circumstances - ever.
Do not ask for staff positions or Operator We pick our staff based on activity, helpfulness, and willingness to put others before themselves. If you're interested in becoming a moderator here, you'll have to put the time in and show us you have what it takes to be part of the staff. DO NOT ASK for staff positions. If you feel you have what it takes to be a moderator, please apply on the forums for a staff position.
No arguing with the Staff/Respect the staff If you see a moderator doing something that you feel is out of line, providing incorrect information on rules, etc, please contact one of the Staff Admins to discuss the problem. Do NOT argue with the moderator in public. The moderators are there to do a job and oftentimes they are provided very specific information on how the Owners/Admins wants things done. If the moderator was out of line, an admin, not you, will provide that feedback to the mod. This keeps drama to a minimum and allows the moderators to do their jobs the way they were told to.
Follow All Posted Rules Many parts of the server are public areas. These areas will frequently have special rules in place for that specific area. Please read and obey ALL signs in public areas. Common rules you'll see is no /top, /jump, /fly, /mc allowed. You may also see signs advising you not to teleport players to you. These rules are in place to make the game fun and fair for everyone from the lowest rank to the highest regardless of what special perks someone may have paid for through donating.
No Spam Fishing to summon the Kraken Self explanatory. Don't spam fish. Don't spam fish to intentionally spawn the Kraken.
No Killing/Harming in Non-PvP areas Do not harm or kill people that are in in non-pvp areas. This is a form of griefing and will not be tolerated.
No Staff Teleports Do not ask for staff to teleport you to a friend or location. If you'd like the ability to teleport to other locations, check out our donation page to find a rank that best fits your gaming needs.
Don't give out your personal information!!! In a nutshell, we want you guys to remain safe and secure while on our server. Do not give out any of your personal information (name, age, location, phone number, Facebook pages, Skype, email address, etc) in general chat. Please, please, please be super careful before even giving any information to someone privately. You never know who you may be talking to. If you feel like someone is trying to get your information, report it to ANY staff member immediately if you feel uncomfortable!
No Inappropriate Skins Do not use skins that may offend someone else. If a staff member asks you to change what you're using, please just make the change.
Use Our Voice Chat Please do not ask our players to join voice chats that are not sponsored by our server. This includes other Ventrilo servers, Mumble and Team Speak. We ask this so that our players can stay in the moderated, safe environment we provide where they can report inappropriate behavior to our staff or seek assistance if someone is making them feel uncomfortable.
English In General Chat Please only use English in our general chat channel. This enables both the staff and the other players on the server to understand each other and not cause misunderstandings. However, you may use any language in party chat with people you are playing with.
Your Account, Your Responsibility We log every block/action that is taken on the server by our players. Please be aware that if we have a report of griefing, harassment or other rule breaking, that we will punish the account, regardless of if it was you or someone else on the account when the problem happened. We strongly encourage you NOT to share your account information with other people since their actions may end up with your account banned on our server.
