    Server rules/Forum Rules

    Post by thek826 on Sat Nov 12, 2011 2:30 pm

    Disclaimer: We may skip to a certain punishment, depending on the severity of the offense.
    Disclaimer 2: These are just general rules. You shouldn't have to memorize them if you use common sense. Also, not every rule is on here, because we often just use common sense when it comes to issues on the server





    Server Rules:

    Minor Offenses (you will get warnings, then kicks, then mutes, then jail, then temporary bans):

    Constant use of capital letters on the server chat

    Constant use of /me where it makes no sense.

    Constant use of Curse words, to show anger or dissapointment (NOT TOWARDS OTHERS, WHEN USED TOWARDS OTHERS, IT IS A MAJOR OFFENSE)

    Spamming the chat.

    Asking for operator/staff positions.

    Flying

    Begging for item x or begging for x amount of money from staff or other players.

    Being a help vampire (ie: constantly asking for help from the staff, especially for trivial things)




    Undefined Offenses (May be treated as a minor or major offense, depending on the severity of the offense)

    Insubordination (this means not following the directions of staff members, for those of you who aren't too good with English) (btw, the staff member's order must be reasonable and not go against any rules)




    Major offenses (you will get banned.):

    Use of a major client mod such as Griefcraft. (Using block reach, .spam, speed miner, xray or any other modifications that give an unfair advantage to the user.)

    Harassing other players (using caps to "yell" at others, using curse words towards others, accusing them of griefing without any proof, etc.)

    Griefing more than 30 standard blocks

    Griefing one or more high quality blocks (Iron blocks, Emerald blocks, Gold blocks, Diamond blocks)

    Harassing others on the forum.

    Pouring lava randomly.

    Pouring lava to kill others.

    Placing spider webs everywhere (considered griefing.)

    Revenge Griefing (Griefing those who grief or annoy you.)

    Advertising other servers.

    Insulting the entire server or community.

    Insulting individual players.

    Building inappropriate structures (you know what I mean.)

    Using lwc to lock objects that aren't your's.

    Placing signs/doors/chests/furnaces everywhere to prevent others from building.

    Placing signs with hurtful messages (hate crimes)

    Using offensive racial slurs/jokes.

    Building a structure that insults or offends others (ie: Building a swastika)





    The MOST SEVERE OFFENSES (You will be banned! Your ban appeals will not be accepted! There is a chance we will call the authorities! I am fully willing to co-operate with the authorities, and I assume the rest of the staff will too)

    Threatening the physical (as in real life) life of another player, even if he or she is a griefer or other kind of rule-breaker!

    Hacking into the account of ANYONE. We can find out, as each unique IP of each player's login is stored in a data base for a long time.

    DDOSing (Denial of service) our server, through hacking our host with the use of malicous hardware and software that are illegal in the countries of our players (US, Canada, Mexico, Italy, UK, Ireland, Australia, basically any nation).

    Threatening to destroy or hack our server.

    Sending out malicious software/hardware to other players.

    Using our server as a means to blackmail others.

    Explicitly stating that you will kill someone while on our server.

    Breaking a law that is considered a felony in the United States of America while on our server.




    This is a start, please help add to the list if you are a staff member.








    Definition of griefing:
    To hamper other players' ability to build or have fun on the server.

    Griefing can be caused by (but is not limited to these reasons): the player destroying the blocks of others without permission from the owner of the blocks/a staff member, placing random blocks in cities or other areas of residents, or building where someone has already claimed land/started building, placing private chests/furnaces/signs/doors in order to prevent others from placing blocks.




    Forum Rules (The format for forum rules is in the format: Offense/Punishments)
    Spamming random crap on the forum.(such as constant emoticons, pictures, etc.)/Temporary ban from forum, topic moved to off-topic and then locked. Repeat offenses will be punished with longer temporary bans or a permanent ban

    Begging for something on the forum by spamming (begging to be unbanned in 20 different topics in 10 different forum sections, begging for items from staff in 20 different places, etc.)/Temporary ban on forum, repeat offenses will be punished with longer temporary bans or a permanent ban

    Constantly cursing out people on the forum or insulting them without reason/Minimum of 14 days of being temporarily banned, repeat offenses=permanent ban

    Sending extremely rude PMs to people/Minimum of 14 days of being temporarily banned, repeat offenses=permanent ban

    (For staff): Banning people on the forum for no reason/Demotion and ban on forum AND server

    (For staff): Locking, deleting, moving or editing other people's posts for no reason at all/Possible demotion and ban (a vote will take place amongst the staff as to whether or not you will be permanently demoted or even banned)

    Added a new severity called "undefined" if you're having trouble figuring out if a certain offense is minor or major.

    Added a much more serious severity. Please make edits. I might not own the server, but I thought those rules were pretty much common sense.

    please keep your own posts on being unbanned in the correct section, and in your own thread

    all of this off topic posts are getting annoying

    Locked. Only Moderator classes can post in locked threads now.

    Updated.

    Removed an obsolete rule that was in place from Solarox5's administration(idk what to call it). The rule was "Breaking the rules of Drag0n's server while on his server" under Major Offenses.

    A) Drag0n doesn't own a server anymore
    B) Even if he did, Mage, the new owner, has stated that what happens outside of this server does not matter here.

    A ton of people from this server were griefing drag0n's server (who was solar's friend) and solar proclaimed that if you break the rules in his server, you get banned here.

    That is stated already in the Server Ranks thread. If not, it is an unspoken rule that people can't donate for a Staff rank.

    What about threatening to DDOS a player? Or something like that, does that come under ddosing the server or threatening/attempting to hack someones acc? Because if someone is DDOS'd you can't get on the internet with the ip you have, and that doesn't just affect the player, also affects that players family (unless they live by themselves) because they nobody will access their internet.
