-What shouldn’t you say?-
There are some things in chat we rather you do not say, to keep it a clean environment for others to hang out in.

    • Swearing at other players or staff is also not allowed.

-Don't spam!-
We like our chats clean! This means no character spam, word spam, or any other forms of spam are allowed.
 
  • Character spam would be: “hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii”
    • instead, “hiii” would be better
  • Word spam would be “Hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello”
    • instead, “hello hello” would be better.
  • Making a sentence in several messages, for example,
    • This
      is
      not
      ok.
  • Sending song lyrics, or copying and pasting large amounts of text is not ok.
  • Quickly sent messages
  • continuously using rainbow text
  • continuously using alternating uppercase/lower case text
-Forbidden Topics-
These specific topics are prohibited from chat. These topics are banned because they can cause controversial conversations that some people would rather not want to discuss or be involved in. People start these topics civilly in chat but it gets out hand. We understand that people have their own opinions, but we prefer that people talk about it in DM.
 
  • The following are banned topics, however other discussions can be stopped by staff if they believe it is not appropriate,
    • Religion
    • Politics
    • Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Holocaust, genocide
    • Sex, sexual innuendo
    • Depression, Suicide.  - We are here to listen, but please try to find someone you can talk to in private. We want to keep it out of public chat as it is very often a trigger for other people who have suffered from the same or similar events, and they would rather not have to go back through it.
 -Don't start things-
Be kind to others, if you have problems with another player, do not instigate a fight in public chat. Try to message them privately and deal with it there, or if it continues to be a problem, contact a staff member. 
  • Examples of this are:
    • Don’t bring up the personal business of others
    • Causing drama or bringing up a topic that causes a disruption in chat
    • Poking and prodding at someone so they have a negative mood/negative reply
-Don’t troll, or intentionally get in trouble-
  • If you join and immediately spam/say inappropriate things, it will most likely lead to a perm ban, and depending on the circumstances may lead to punishment for the main account if it is an alt.
  • If you constantly cause issues that cause little punishments or very close to a little punishment, the staff has full authority to deem a punishment, based on past history. (ie. you constantly annoy staff with little “jokes” that could be inappropriate, if behavior like that continues, it could lead to a bigger punishment).
-Advertising-
Poaching other players or staff is not allowed .
No advertising other server ips or their names, anywhere on the servers platforms. Aka, forums, discord, or the server itself.


-Language-
We would appreciate if all general chats were kept to English only. The majority of players and staff speak English, this also keeps chats easy to read and moderate. If you wish to speak a language other than English, we would suggest to privately message the player/players you wish to speak with.



Any threats made to a player, staff, or the server will be taken serious and will be dealt accordingly

Each player needs to give consent before engaging in a PVP battle. If you kill a player, you must give them back their items, either by leaving it in a chest in the location of death, or telepoting them back to their death location. Tp killing is not allowed, aka, teleporting players on a high up pillar, or making a drop death, or anything alike, that causes death upon teleport.

-Wilderness-

Please try to keep the wild clean, other players are also trying to find a place for their base, and would like a clean environment i.e. no 1 block wide dirt towers, try not to leave any floating trees, don’t leave random blocks on the ground, etc. When looking for your base, stay 150 blocks away from other player’s homes. They might want to expand and they were there first. If you do build 150 blocks away and they do expand, you don’t need to move away again.

 

Rules are subject to change.
