Minecraft Rules

 

Discord Server:
https://discord.com/invite/VD4KWJw

 

Disclaimer: Rules are according to Administrator and Moderator discression. If a violation presents itself as being more severe than intially demonstrated, punishment lengths will be extended. Bans and mutes may be extended as additional evidence is presented.  Rules stated below are guidelines for enforcement of the intended play on Factions. As such, Administrators and Moderators may take action against anyone who violates the intended mechanics and game play of the server.

The below is a list of rules and guidelines that can be changed without notice, although they are kept up-to-date as much as possible. Any attempt to circumvent or find loopholes in the rules will be dealt with with the same punishment as breaking the rule. Furthermore, deliberate use of loopholes around a rule will result in a more severe punishment. Not knowing prior to the event that the aforementioned rule was in place is not an excuse. All players are expected to know the rules and to abide by them. If a player is unsure if their actions count as a loophole, they should message an admin to clarify before taking ANY action that would be included as part of the loophole.


Find below the rules. Please note these rules can change at any moment. We have gathered common rule sets used by our initial player base. And combined them here. Should any of these not make sense, or you do not agree with them. Please let a minecraft admin know.

Other Server Rules
 - Please keep hacking accusations and "how did you get in?" things to private message. If you feel someone is cheating, please contact an admin on discord. Do not continue to accuse and drag out your problems and personal hacking accusations in chat. The admins are always willing to hear you out, and we prefer to handle these things between the two parties involved.
 - Lava and water griefing are prohibited as it lags the server (and makes the admins have to clean it up). We track lava usage in the database and will kick/ban.

 

Things to Note

The administration team will not make changes to any Factions. We will not add/remove you as officer or add/remove you as administrator, nor will we kick inactive members. We do reserve the right to change any faction name if it is deemed inappropriate or otherwise.
 - If a member of a faction builds an event on the creative server, no member from that faction can use the event in the first week nor claim any "end game" prize.
 - Administrative issues need to be handled in moderator mail, private messages, or on discord.
 - Show respect to other users. As a factions server, we understand that you might be upset. Betrayals happen, and emotions go wild. We are a community and ultimately everyone is here to have fun, so please keep that in mind. Do not threaten other players jokingly or not. Consistent harassment of users can result in a ban.
 - Do not break the Mojang Studios Terms of Service or engage in illegal actions.
 - Above all have fun.

General Player Rules

  • No Hacking. In any way, shape or form. 
  • Do not harass players or attempt to bully them off the server.
    A player saying something mean every now and then is not harassment, you as a player can use the /ignore add <username> feature to not have to listen to it. If the player continues to work around this ignore to bully you, then it becomes harassment. PVP callouts in PVP chat are not harassment.

  • Do not misuse channels beyond their intended function.
    An occasional “funny comment” or “quip” in for example Trade chat is fine, but you are not to derail channels for a purpose they are not intended. Do not spill or create drama in public chats, or engage in excessive arguments that could be done in private message.

  • Do not “Doxx” players, or reveal private information on the server.
    Doxxing players is the intentional revelation of their real-life name, home address, or information that could reasonably lead to their real-life identity being revealed. Revealing information that is already known in the community, or easily google-able is not Doxxing.

  • Do not scam other players (On the server or in-Game).
    This includes regals sales. If true currency is involved, it is strongly recommended that the PayPal Invoice system be used. Contact staff for further information.

  • Do not use an offensive skin, username or nickname.
    If it does not meet our community standards, we will ask you to change it. Otherwise you may find yourself Jailed or Banned.

  • Do not break the Mojang Studios Terms of Service or engage in illegal actions.
    This includes, but is not limited to, the use of Alt Generators or selling Minecraft Accounts.

  • Do not use our plugins or other Minecraft mechanics in explotative ways. 
    This includes, but is not limited to, abusing glitches or bugs in Quests, Plugins, etc, or using these mechanics to spam.

  • We do not force you to respect our staff, but we ask that you are patient and cordial with our Staff.
    If a Staff member mistreats you, contact RidditZ directly on Discord. Do not impersonate staff.

 

General Roleplay Rules

  • Do not steal, copy, modify or re-use skins (or other content) belonging to other players without their consent. 
    Also, do not use skins or builds that are clearly meant to evoke an erotic or racist sentiment.

  • Respect the space and place of other roleplayers without forcing yourself into it. 
    Ask before forcing yourself into a scene, and do not engage in OOC actions on the sidelines that make concentrating on the roleplay harder.

  • Do not engage in inappropriate roleplay in public or with minors. 
    Do not engage in excessively disgusting roleplay, excessively vulgar roleplay, meta-roleplay, god-roleplay, or any other such mechanics of fail-roleplay. Stick to our lore when roleplaying.
