Minecraft Server Global Rules


Many of the punishment lengths are purposefully vague so precedent and staff discretion can be more easily used, allowing staff members to adapt punishments as time goes by, rather than being bound by arbitrary rules created with limited knowledge of the reality they intend to dictate. Words such as “short” and “long” about punishment duration are extremely relative; for example, a “short” punishment for breaking one rule maybe a 5-minute mute, while a “short” punishment for a different rule may be a month-long temp ban.

  • The punishments follow the following general formula:
    Offense committed: punishment for first offense -> second offense -> … -> nth offense

  • If you see a “<->”, this means the punishments on either side of that symbol may be used for the same number of offenses (i.e. first offense, second offense, etc.) depending upon the severity of that offense.

1. Using modded clients - Optifine, Shaders, and other mods which improve game-play are allowed.
- Speed mods (Nuker, Fast Break, Fast Mine): warning -> 1-2 month temp ban
- Fly mods (SurvivalFly): warning/kick -> 1-2 week temp ban -> by 1-2 month temp ban
- Spawning invalid items: warning/kick -> short temp ban -> long temp ban

Discord server rules


1 Stick to the Channel theme. Try to stick to the theme of the channel. Don't spam inside Channels, and don't go out of your way to attempt to cause other aggravation.

2 No Advertisement Any types of external links are not allowed in the server, they will lead to an instant ban.

3 No Drama. Do whatever it takes not to start or encourage unnecessary drama.

4 Respect the Staff Team. If you have any questions or objections, feel free to create a ticket about it or report inappropriate behavior. Do not ping staff unless there is a matter that needs immediate attention.

5 No alt accounts. Alternate accounts are not permitted on the server. Please only join with one account or we'll ban them all.

6 No Harassment. Do not post information or pictures of other people without their permission. Any type of serious harassment (blackmailing, doxing, hate speech) will lead to a permanent ban.





Failure to abide by rules will get you Discouraged for up to a month.
Staff members can discourage users. Discouraging means our system will purposely make your account run slow. Meaning posts may take a while to post, if they post at all, reading/viewing content and clicking on links may take up to 5 minutes to load, or it can take up to 30 minutes for a page to load. Even if you have the best internet. Discouraging is meant to "Discourage" users from spamming, hacking, and other harmful stuff on our site, and if they see "System failures" and if the website is slow, they will most likely leave, and not come back. Discouraging is meant to drive spammers away from our site.
