Survival Server Rules
- Griefing, raiding, and PvP are allowed.
- No asking for items and services from staff.
- Asking for minor help or minor assistance is permitted, but please be respectful of server staff’s time.
- Hacking is the use of any outside modifications or third-party clients to obtain abnormal benefits that players using a vanilla Minecraft client would not have. Use of any modifications is not permitted.
- X-raying is the use of a modification or resource pack that is used to find ores, bases, mob spawners, or anything you normally wouldn't be able to see. If you mine in irregular patterns (e.g. in the dark, random tunnels, etc.), staff will reserve the right to ban you for potentially using x-ray.
- Hacking is one of the greatest problems with semi-vanilla servers, and as a result, we take it seriously. If you claim to use hacks (even if you are joking or aren't actually using them), we will believe you and you could be banned for using hacks.
- Spawn killing is defined by any PvP within a radius of 800 blocks from x: 0, z: 0, with the only exception being the PvP Arena.
- Additionally, repetitively killing someone at a spawnpoint in either the Nether or The End is not permitted. The player must be given an opportunity to teleport away to spawn – if they continue to fight, then it is not spawn-killing.
- Repetitive messages consist of any similar message sent multiple times in a short period. Once you have sent a message, you do not need to resend it, regardless of whether or not you change a few characters.
- Explicit Advertising: If you log on the server to intentional advertise the server, this is not permitted in any form. Do not post any IPs in the main chat.
- Conversational Advertising: Sometimes mentioning other servers happen, but the main server chat is not the place to discuss other servers. If you want to talk about another server privately with a friend, please do so in private (spamming random players and advertising still counts as advertising).
- Causing drama consists of any actions or behavior that would be considered unruly, disruptive, or negative by other players or server staff. This includes things such as harassing other players, insulting others, name calling, etc.
- Taking advantage of any known glitches or abusive actions that staff would otherwise not condone can result in a temporary or permanent ban. If you know of a way to get around something, consult staff immediately and do not continually abuse it. We will find out.
- Any type of excessive profanity or obscenity is not appropriate for chat. Anything sexually, racially or ethnically inappropriate is not suitable for chat and will result in instant punishment. Keep in mind that while we do allow cursing, please do not abuse this privilege – if staff believes your profanity is disrupting the harmony of the server, we will reserve the right to mute you without warning.
- This also includes obscene or inappropriate skins (at a staff member's own discretion).
- Server staff have willingly volunteered their time to help manage the server, and they are here to help. Sometimes we have to make hard decisions, and we don’t always want to punish players. But when staff has to make decisions, you as the player must respect the decision, and if you have an issue with that decision, consult jflory7 privately.
- Using any alternative account to evade a ban, mute, or other punishment is prohibited and will result in the same or doubled punishment on both the original account and the alternative account.
- A majority of the server community speaks English and most people will not be able to understand foreign languages. For this reason, English is the only permitted language on the server.
- You are required to use the same username on TeamSpeak3 as your primary, in-game name on the Minecraft server. This means the exact same username (case sensitive).
- If you are logged in with two clients at once, use the default TeamSpeak3 formatting for two usernames (e.g. jflory7 and jflory71).
- Consent should be explicit from everyone in the channel if you record. That means a definite “yes” or “no”, not a “yeah” or “maybe”.
- Be aware there is no guarantee someone isn’t recording with other software. People may record and have it justified by staff if it is regarding the behavior of other players that are breaking rules.
- The topics mentioned above are meant to be guidelines, not an exclusive list of things that cannot be discussed. What is appropriate and inappropriate is at the discretion of a staff member or other players in the channel.
- If you have an issue with the discussion, content, or behavior of others in private channels, please contact the creator / founder of the channel.
If you have been punished for breaking a rule in the past and you break a different rule unrelated to the rule you broke the first time, staff reserves the right to escalate your punishment to a higher degree for a past history of breaking rules.
Whenever you are punished for anything, be it a mute or a ban, you need to read these rules and re-familiarize yourself with them to make sure that you don’t break them again. Not reading these rules is not an excuse.We reserve the right to edit these rules at any time.
