General Rules

Be respectful to other players

Don’t use extremely derogatory terms or epithets. Don’t insult or personally attack others in excess. If someone asks you to stop, then stop.

Don’t use excessive or extremely offensive profanity

Cursing is allowed in moderation, but don’t go overboard or get shockingly offensive with it. Staff will warn you if you’re crossing the line.

Practice good chat etiquette

Don’t use caps, don’t spam, don’t discuss controversial, sensitive or offensive topics (e.g. sex, sexual identity or preferences, race, politics, religion, drugs, etc.), no advertising, no links, no trolling. Please only use the minecraft font and English in global chat.

No hate speech in any form

Never engage in hate speech of any kind. This means chat, private message, in your builds, in books, your skin, signs, etc.

Any form of cheating will not be tolerated

This means anything that gives you an unfair advantage over players who are playing the game the way the game was intended to be played. This includes but is not limited to: non-approved clients (hacked clients, minimaps), abusing in-game glitchs (duping, 0-tick farms, x-ray, breaking bedrock) and xray texture packs.

You are responsible for your account and IP

You are responsible for anything that your account or IP does on this server. If you let someone borrow your account and they break the rules, your account can still be banned.

Accounts from public sites/lists will be banned

Accounts found on public sites/lists like MCLeaks are deemed to be stolen or compromised in some way. If you login with one, both the account and IP will be banned.

Don’t have too many entities loaded around you

Press F3 and look for E: #/#. The second number should be lower than 100. If not, try killing animals/mobs, picking up dropped items, removing paintings, item frames, armor stands, etc.

No inappropriate Names/Skins

This includes your name, item name, name tags, nude skins, body part skins, subjective skins, etc. If asked by staff to change something you have/use because of this, please do so!

No lava buckets near spawn

Lava buckets will automatically be taken away near spawn, you have been warned.

No overworld gold farms

Overworld gold farms are a server owners worst nightmare, they cause crashes, chunk corruption and lag. Please don't make them.

Glitching in or out of PVP arena is not allowed

This includes using ender pearls or chorus fruit to excape or enter combat.

TPA Killing/Trapping is allowed

It's up to you whether or not you make or accept teleport requests. Use the TPA system at your own risk, make sure you trust the players you are teleporting to. If killed and/or your base gets destroyed, its your fault.

Spawn Border Shenanigans

Spawn should be a safe place for players, its expected they are able to idle without fear of being killed. Players are not to use glitches or other methods (ex. fishing rods) to push/pull/kill players in the core of spawn (< 100 blocks) That being said, any PVP just inside/outside/near spawn protection borders is free game.

No Scamming In the Trading Post

The trading post is meant to be a safe place for players to trade items without fear of getting scammed. Until the trading post is complete in the new map, spawn will be covered by the no scamming rule.

Using a banned name will get you banned

If you changed your account name to a banned name, your account will automatically be banned.

Using a VPN will get you banned

Due to the majority of bots that use VPN's, we have decided to ban all VPN's from our server. It is possible for false positives, if you have been banned for VPN you can appeal on the forums and we will unban you as quick as possible.

Please listen to staff members

In order to keep the server safe, staff reserve the right to add, modify and patch rules.


Contribution Terms And Conditions

By contributing you accept the following terms and conditions and agree to abide by the rules of the server, which may be changed or updated from time to time. If you do not completely agree, do not contribute.
 
No refunds or charge backs for any reason.
 
You are contributing your money permanently, without stipulation and with no expectation of receiving any tangible goods or services in exchange for your contribution, and are in fact guaranteed nothing and pledge to never ask for your money back for any reason.
 
While the server owner does award certain trivial in-game perks to show appreciation to donors, acceptance of your contribution does not obligate the owner to provide continued access to said perks. The server owner and administrators reserve the right to at any time alter or revoke any and all perks you receive without a refund.
 
While your contribution is given for the intended purpose of helping fund continued operation of the server, it in no way guarantees you continued access to the server. You are solely responsible for the behaviour of your account in-game and accept full responsibility for any misconduct. The server owner and administrators reserve the right to at any time for any reason deny you access to the server and its associated website, discord and TeamSpeak by means of banishment without a refund.
 
The server owner is not responsible for your satisfaction with your gaming experience, or the conduct of other players, and may alter or terminate the gaming experience at any time. While you may voluntarily stop playing on the server at any time for any reason, you agree that you are in no way entitled to a refund of your contributions regardless of the circumstances.
 
Each contribution is considered separately and distinctly. That is, if you contribute multiple times, you will receive the perks associated with each contribution individually, not the perks associated with your total accumulated contribution.
 
VIP status is tied to the in-game name in use at the time of the contribution. Players who change their name will lose their VIP rank and will need to contribute again under the new in-game name in order to regain their VIP rank.
 
By contributing you are asserting that you have parental permission, if applicable, and are authorized to use the debit/credit card and/or PayPal account to contribute. Contributions are not tax deductible.


Subscription Terms And Conditions

VIP+/MVP is a rank given to those who are not staff and in one way or another consistently help us keep the server running. There are two ways to obtain the rank. The first is by appointment. Certain long-time friends of the server who are trusted by the staff may be promoted to VIP+/MVP and given certain staff-like abilities. The second way to obtain the rank is by contributing on a monthly basis.

All players with the VIP+/MVP rank receive the ability to apply particle effects to their avatar. Other benefits may be added at any time. All VIP+/MVP benefits are subject to staff discretion and may be limited, altered, or removed at any time. Any player who abuses their benefits or does not follow all rules is subject to demotion and loss of benefits.

Those who are appointed to the rank of VIP+/MVP will also receive staff-like capabilities, such as kick/ban. This does not mean that these players are staff. VIP+/MVP should not interact with other players as though they are staff. The role is meant to be a more passive position; a way for trusted individuals to help the server, for instance, by banning spammers when no staff is online.

Those who contribute $25 monthly also receive the rank of VIP+/MVP. Players receive one month of VIP+/MVP benefits for each month of VIP+/MVP purchased. In other words, contributing more doesn’t give you more benefits; it just gives you the same benefits for longer. For example, a player who contributed $75 by purchasing the VIP+/MVP product will receive 3 months of benefits.

As with all contributions, they are permanent and non-refundable. If you do contribute for future months of VIP+/MVP benefits but decide to stop playing, don’t think the benefits are worth it, or have benefits revoked for not following the rules, you will not receive a refund.
