No Hacked Clients. There is absolutely zero tolerance towards those who use hacked clients &/or glitches to give yourself an advantage over other players. This also includes using certain Texture Packs, such as X-Ray Packs and the use of Macros.
You will NOT be warned if using any of those, instead, you will simply just be PERMANENTLY banned from the server.
Do not spam the chat with quick and repetitive messages. Also, using the whisper feature to spam another's chat is also considered spamming the chat. The server is set up to auto-ban anyone who is spamming the chat too much or too quickly. Thus, you need to be careful how quickly you enter messages. It is really just a respectful thing to do for other players and helps keep the spirit of the game running.
Do not advertise on our server. You are not a commercial and we do not care what other servers you feel are awesome. Take it somewhere else.
Advertising on the server is absolutely not tolerated and will lead to a PERMANENT ban WITHOUT warning.
Do not ask for any type of special privilege and/or VIP, Donator, Moderator, Operator or Administrator status. Let me put it this way, if we wanted you to become staff for the server, we will ask you. You asking us is not only annoying, but also deserving of a ban.
If you happen to get banned from the server you can appeal on the forums, under the ban appeal section.
Do NOT sign onto an alternate account thinking that we will not notice. Your alternate accounts can also be banned, and possibly your IP as well (Have fun explaining that to your family).
Disrespecting our ban appeal process can lead to you PERMANENTLY being banned.
Do not leak the personal information of others. If you happen to be told personal information about another player, respect their privacy and do not publicly post that information for all to read. Disrespecting another player in this way can eventually lead to you being banned from the server.
When a staff member requests you do something that is within reason, you need to do what you are told. This is because you are doing something that is not allowed on the server, and you are being warned about it.
Also, keeping a member of the staff from being able to preform their duties can also lead to a ban from the server.
Disrespecting a staff member can eventually lead to being banned from the server.
We have set up a type of Spawn Protection around our spawn building on the server to try and protect players who just want to visit spawn. Those players will have a Grey Name on the online players listing. If you repeatably abuse spawn protection by either attacking players with a grey name, attack players while you have a grey name, or indirectly attempt to harm players with grey names (such as lighting fires in spawn, or attempting to suffocate/drown another player in spawn protection)), you WILL be banned from the server!
Player bases on the server have a limit of up to 150 Entities in a given area and 100 Entities in a view distance. If you are unsure of how to check if you have too many entities hit F3. The 4th line in the Upper Left hand corner of the display has an E: #/#. The first number is entities in a view distance & the second number is entities in a surrounding area.
Those numbers that MUST be less than 100/150 at all times!
Simply employ common sense and do NOT exploit any loopholes in the rules. The rules ARE subject to change at any time, and, as the server evolves, will change. So, be conscious of this and check the rules periodically.
