Offence

Description

Examples

Spam

Spam is only when a players intent is to cause a disruption in the chat.

Only punish the player for excessive instances

Normal Spam:

Repeating the same message & sending  elongated words or random characters

Chat Flooding:

Filling the entire character limit for chat in game to cause the chat to be filled with the players message.

Note: 1 Letter capital words are not spam.

Staff Guidelines:

Do not aggressively try to enforce the rules in a “tryhard” fashion

”COME TO MY SHOP

Come to MY SHOP!!!!

Commeeee to my shop nowww!!!!!!”

This is an example of something to mute for regarding spam. Due to it being repetitive and 3 seperate messages containing the same message.

”IUnu i1278jiBJKLB@KbiuybjkJ#GHuibhbbYIUiub@”

This is definitely intended to be spam and cause a disruption in chat by flooding it.

”I AM SO BORED RIGHT NOW UGGGGHHH SOMEONE COME TO THIS MINE AND MINE WITH ME IM LONELY COME TO A MINE RIGHT NOW”

This is caps spam and flooding the chat. Intentionally trying to  cause a disturbance and focus attention on their message in a inappropriate way.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Spam

“Stop being so rude

Why are you even bothering them

Stop talking about it”

Even though its 3 seperate lines it does not constitute spam because the player is engaging into a conversation.

“Ggggggggg get reekkkkttttttttt scruubbbbb”

This may be minor flood but it is not mutable due to the context in a conversation the player might be having on the server.

Private Message Spam

Message spam is when a player is spamming another user on the server to cause a disturbance with the other player.

Party chat spam:

Spamming the same message within the party chat and causing the other players in that party to get annoyed.

Message spam:

Repeating the same message to one player causing the player to get bothered and spam the staffs socialspy to get covered in pm’s

Note: If the conversation does not look like its bothering the user than its not spam

”Hey

Hey

Hey

Hey

Hey

Hey

Hey

hey”

This is an example of message spam due to the constant repetition

“Dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd”

This is flooding the chat and causing a disturbance within the staffs visibility through socialspy and if it’s too much it warrants a warning.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Message Spam

“Hey you need to come here!

Hey you need to come here!

Hey you need to come here!”

This is an example of them trying to get the attention of the other member in the party or message

“QUICKLY COME RIGHT NOW OUR BASE IS UNDER ATTACK DROP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND COME TO THE BASE NOWWWWWWW!”

This may consist of caps but it still is attempting to get the attention of the player within the group.

Bypassing a Chat filter

Priority 1 Words

Attempting to put a word blocked by our internal filters

Caps Bypassing:

Spacing out capital letters and intentionally trying to bypass a filter that limits the usage of capital letters.

Inappropriate Language:

Using language on the server that is in the word blacklist and intentionally trying to send words blocked by it.

Note: The chat filter primarily covers racial slurs but any words bypassed by it would be notable by incorporation of “.,;’” within a word

”You are such a little bi..tch”

This is bypassing the chat filter by trying to type bitch but including the “..” within the word to bypass the filter.

“W.. H.. Y.. D.. O.. I.. K.. E.. E.. P.. G.. E.. T.. T.. I.. N.. G.. S.. O.. M.. U.. C.. H.. H.. A.. T.. E..”

This is an example of someone attempting to bypass the caps filter by incorporating “..” at the end of each letter.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Bypassing the filter

“What the frick is up my dudes”

This is not bypassing the filter as its using a word that might be considered a meme or reference to something else.

“WHAT even IS this THING”

This may consist of caps but is emphasizing each word to focus on the point of the message.

Hackusation

Accusing another player of hacking

Accusations of hacking:

Claiming that another player is hacking in public chat

Note: Public chat hackusations require a warning but do not need further investigation unless a player private messages you to investigate further.

In most cases a player will disable hacks if they are alerted

“WOW! Player is hacking!!!! Staff tp to me right now and ban player!!!”

This is stating in public chat the exact players name and alerting both the player and the staff team to it which will allow the player time to disable hacks

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Hackusation

“Lol nice hacks”

This may be alerting the player to hacks but they are unaware of who that player is calling out. This gives staff time to handle the situation

“Player > staff member | Hey I think player is hacking can you tp”

This is the best course of action for the player to handle a hacker.

General Rudeness

Light harassment or players intentionally trying to initiate problems with another user

Inciting an argument:

Attempting to cause drama or problems within the conversation on the server.

Disagreeing with a player just to do it:

Not attempting to have a discussion just to create havoc.

Threats on attempting to get a friend unbanned/unmuted:

Not taking the appropriate course of action to appeal a ban and trying to incite an argument.

Note: Make sure to communicate with the player and send them the appropriate links if the situation warrants it.

“Jesus player you suck so much why dont you just go play roblox you piece of crap”

This message is directed towards another player with the intent to make them feel bad for playing a game.

“Why are all the staff on this stupid server so abusive... god this server is trash”

This message is to intend that the staff on the server have no idea what they are doing and saying they abuse their powers is creating a false reality.

“I swear to god if you dont unban my friend im going to get you demoted you abusive staff member. He wont appeal unmute him NOW or else”

Threatening the staff team with this is intended to push you to do something about a punishment they think was wrongfully done. Message them the appropriate links and warn them about their behaviour

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT General Rudeness

“Ur bad kid / ggez / get rekt lol”

This is intended to be a joke and its only lightly playing at the other player. This is not general rudeness

“Hey staff, I think my friend got wrongfully banned, can he get unbanned?”

This is the best course of action for the player to handle a unban appeal for their friend by directly trying to communicate with the staff team and begin the right course of action.

Chat Trolling

Attempting to get other players to do some action that may impede their gameplay

Inciting an argument:

Attempting to cause drama or problems within the conversation on the server.

Disagreeing with a player just to do it:

Not attempting to have a discussion just to create havoc.

“Press Alt+F4 to get free items!!!!!!”

This is a key combination that may cause the player to close out of their game.

“OMG you can do /ci for COOL ITEMS!!!!!!”

/ci is a shortcut command for /clearitems which empties the players inventory. This will cause the player to loose their items and hinder their gameplay

“Constantly spamming /helpop with irrelevant messages”

Helpop is only used for reporting issues to staff directly. Abusing that command causes the chat to be flooded and may hinder your experience as staff. This is unacceptable

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Chat trolling

“Come to my plot for free stuff!”

This is advertising a plot that may have a in game scam which is allowed

“Realms was the best meme of 2013”

This is intended to be a joke and the player isnt trying to troll or create problems within the server

Rioting

Banding a group of players together and attempting to have a central goal to cause problems within the server

Rioting behind a banned player:

A goal to get one player unbanned without taking the right course of action

Rioting to demote a staff member:

Not sending a report about any behaviour they see as wrong

“UNBAN_Player”

Either setting names or spamming chat with a single message

“Demote Staff member!”

A group with names or messages that contain the same central goal.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Rioting

“What did player do to get this punishment?”

Asking a question about why is not rioting its just asking why. Send them the appeal with this kind of question

“I think Staff member needs to be demoted”

This may be an opinion but if its a single instance its not rioting.

Light advertisement

This section is only describing advertisements that do not include a IP

Asking players here to join a server:

If the player is asking others here to join the other server that’s a violation since they are our competitor

Messaging a player to join a server:

This is a method used to recruit players to another server

Advertising Youtube / Twitch Links:

Attempting to advertise non approved channels in chat to attract viewers

“Anyone want to play Hypixel with me?”

This is mentioning another servers name and attempting to direct the players to a seperate network

“/msg player hey you should play my server”

Messages sent to another player trying to direct them to play on another server without including an ip would be considered in this section.

“Hey you should all follow me on twitch! My name is player1234! Go follow me!”

Attempting to advertise a youtube / twitch link in game or in a message without having verified rank

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Light advertising

“What do you think of popular servers name game?”

This is fine, its not asking to join its trying to spark a conversation around a popular server other players might know about and talk about it around a central topic

“/msg player I think this server should add bedwars like hypixel”

This player would be relating the content from another server and recommending it to added here. This is just a conversation

“Verified User: Hey! Im streaming on OG prison right now! Come and join the chat!”

This is fine because its a stream by a verified user on the server.

Inappropriate Behaviour

Anything relating to lighty sexual context in a conversation or intent to harm yourself

Sexual content in chat:

Implying actions to another user or the inclusion of lewd ASCII art to represent sexual depictions

Sucicial messages / Self harm:

In chat saying they will commit suicide or harm themself due to some action.

Attention Whoring:

Trying to attract sympathy by using a disability, mental illness or personal dilema to get something within the game.

“8===============D ~~~~~~~”

“Anyone want to be my daddy~~”

“I want to come inside of you”

These messages imply the use of sexual terminology and is inappropriate to the servers audience

“If i dont get 100000 i will kill myself”

“Im thinking of killing myself tomorrow”

These messages are to display intent of self harm. Its not the appropriate place to discuss this on the server.

BUT Be very lenient with the punishment for this.

Send the player a private message and try and talk to them about why they feel this way and if they are suicidal ask them to seek help

Send them this hotline: 1-800-8255

If the player is serious about this try to get in contact with one of the admins.

“I have autism can i get 100 pixls pls”

“My dad just died can i please have some money”

“Im really sad right now because my dog just died can i get a donor rank”

This is using something within their life to try and get sympathy out of the players on the server.

“Bush did 9/11 / Cancer is epic”

These message is using tragic events as an edgy joke and is inappropriate.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT inappropriate

“Oh yeah daddy”

This player would be using a message like this that might have some loose sexual connotation but its not directly towards another player and can be seen as a joke

“Im really sad right now i dont know what to do with my life”

This is them talking about their emotional distress. This can warrant a message to see if they are alright.  

Website Links

Linking websites that are not acceptable on the server

Acceptable Links:

Minecraft.com

Clubobsidian.com

Mojang.com

Store.clubobsidian.com

The teamspeak IP

Discord join address

And any of the voting sites

Unacceptable links:

Links trying to attract traffic that are not associated with the club obsidian server or mojang

“Hey you should check out my cool website minecraftdude.com”

This is trying to attract players to their website which is not a acceptable link on the server

“Go to facebook.com and add me”

This is not an acceptable link and could get a player to have access to another players personal information.

Below this point will be examples of what are acceptable links

“You should join the discord! discord.gg/An7crQ”

This is a player trying to get another player on our discord, this is acceptable to get them to join

“If you want to buy ranks buy them at store.clubobsidian.com”

Directing the players to one of the approved links is fine.

Staff Disrespect

Disrespecting the staff on the server and trying to incite drama without attempting to have a discussion

Staff Disrespect in game:

Attempting to poke and prod at a specified staff member to cause drama and escalate punishment

Staff Disrespect through helpop:

Spamming on helpop to distract a specific staff member

Staff Disrespect on Discord:

@ting a specific staff member trying to poke and prod to escalate a situation.

“Staff member you are such a waste of space what do you even do”

Poking and prodding a staff member is that player trying to harass you directly and cause a escalated punishment to later use against you if you escalate it.

“/helpop hey Staff member you deserve to be demoted you abusive piece of crap”

Trying to poke and prod a staff member through the helpop message can cause a staff member to have limited visibility in chat to help actual players.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Staff Disrespect

“I think this staff member needs to be demoted”

This is a player making an opinion about a staff member, this is not punishable but you can pm them and ask why they think that.

“/helpop hey this staff member wrongfully banned my friend how can i report this.”

This is a player reporting a possible abuse of power and you should direct them to the right link to file a report.

Gameplay Sabotage

Using their higher obtained ability to hinder new players initial experience on the server

FOR THIS SECTION REPLACE MUTE WITH TEMP BANS

Teasing a player into pvp:

Directing a new player who may not know how to play yet into pvp and making them rage quit

Harassing a player by following them:

Following a player and hindering their gameplay physically in game.

Money spam:

Spamming low amounts of money to new players to spam their chat and hinder their gameplay.

Telling a new player to fight them or their a noob and persuading them into fighting or following them until they can attack

By directing the player to follow them with new items it might hinder the players ability to get a start on the server to have a fair chance.

Following a player around and trying to either fill their inventory with trash or get in their way

Annoying the player by filling their inventory with useless items will hinder them to get any items in game or following them by blocking access to fundamental gameplay functions

Spamming a low rank player with low amounts of money where it hinders their ability to play the game

Paying low amounts of money to a player can hinder their ability to see in game messages and if its reported by the victim it should be punished.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Staff Disrespect

“Hey you want to pvp Low rank?”

This is a player asking a question about whether or not the low rank player wants to engage in pvp but not harassing them about it.

“/helpop hey this staff member wrongfully banned my friend how can i report this.”

This is a player reporting a possible abuse of power and you should direct them to the right link to file a report.

Offence

Description

Examples

Abusive Behaviour

Being very verbally abrasive directed towards another player.

Verbal Abuse:

Insulting another player without justification and with intent to upset them

Directed Harassment:

Whether it's through PM or in chat directed harassment is when the player sends insulting messages to the player about something personal

”You are so fucking shitty kid, go drink bleach and die. Your mom should have swallowed”

This is intended to hurt the player its directed to. This kind of language on the server is not tolerated.

”You are such a waste of space player”

Even though its not including obscene language its still directed to upset the player and unacceptable.

”Why dont you just go off yourself”

This kind of attitude is to directly tell a player to kill themselves and it not a joke or to be taken in a joking manner

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Abusive behaviour

“kys”

Even though it can be considered offensive on the server this is commonly used by the community as a light insult and shouldn’t be taken seriously unless it’s actually attempting to harass a player..

Always check context before you punish a player.

“Im going to kill you player”

This could relate to a instance within the game where the player is pvping that other player instead of saying they would kill them in real life.

General Harassment

Harassing another player with the intent to cause drama and using sexual language

Explicit Sexual content:

Talking in explicit details about sexual actions while the other player doesnt want that to be said about them

Drama:

Players inciting drama relating to past events or other players within the network to cause a disruption in gameplay

”Stick my thick meaty cock in your hand player”

This is intended to hurt the player its directed to. This kind of language on the server is not tolerated.

”I want to fuck you so hard player”

Even though its not including obscene language its still directed to upset the player and unacceptable.

”Carl was the best player and he needs to be unbanned now or we are rioting!”

This attitude is trying to incite drama based off of past events where they could take another course of action such as appealing a ban or leaving.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT general harassment

“Oh yeah daddy halo”

This is not considered harassment, its using sexual language in a comedic manner to make light jokes and nobody is getting hurt by it.

“Staff member sign my plot ill suck your dick!”

Again using sexual language to make a joke while trying to stand out in a comedic manner. This is not punishable

Advertising other servers

This is when a player advertises a server including an ip

Posting IPs in public chat:

Talking in explicit details about sexual actions while the other player doesnt want that to be said about them

Pm’ing users a ip:

Players inciting drama relating to past events or other players within the network to cause a disruption in gameplay

”EVERYONE come join my server 112.178.41.31”

This message is their attempt to try and direct players on their server and is not tolerable.

”Everyone join this other prison server! I will give you free money! shittyprison.com”

This is a player trying to direct the players onto another server via a ip in chat

”/msg player join this server instead its so much better 100.144.312.534”

This attitude is them trying to recruit a player to another server through private messages

The player puts an ip on a sign on their plot

This is not tolerated by any means and results in a ban instead of a mute for the first offense. And the plot will be cleared. 

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT advertising

“I think hypixel made this gamemode good this server should add it”

Talking about another server is fine as long as its not directing traffic to it and its in the context of a conversation.

“I think they should add this thing like this server”

Talking about another server is fine as long as its not directing traffic to it and its in the context of a conversation.

“The pvp from this server could be similar to other server if they did this thing”

Talking about another server is fine as long as its not directing traffic to it and its in the context of a conversation.

DDOS Threats

Threatening to ddos another player or the server

CHANGE OUT MUTE FOR A TEMPORARY BAN

DDOS Threats:

A player threatening to hit the server off which if done and successfully deployed would deny traffic to the users

Personal DDOS Threats:

Telling another player they will hit them off and deny them from using their internet connection.

Note: If a player makes this threat mute them and then warn them that if they continue we will contact their local authorities about the threat.

”Im going to hit this shitty server off, fuck you”

The intent behind this is to announce they plan on attempting to hit off the server and that action will absolutely not be tolerated.

“Player im going to hit you off you faggot”

Threatening to hit off a player on the server will result in the corresponding punishment.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT a DDOS threat

“Lol im going to hit you off haha”

If the context of the conversation reads as if its a joke do not punish them for it.

“Im an elite hacker im going to hit this server off haha”

Again if the context of the conversation reads as a joke it shouldn’t be punished

Abusive use of Permissions

Using the permissions earned from either in game content or from purchasing ranks in an abusive manner

Nickname Abuse:

If a player is using their nickname to include offensive language then it should be removed

Other permission abuse:

If the player is using the permissions they were given through a purchase the player will be punished accordingly .

Note: If the player persists through all of the punishments the permission will be removed until they appeal it.

”Playerisgay > look at my nickname lol”

Harassing another player by using permissions they have access to and setting their name to something is not tolerated on the server.

”Owner > look at me im the owner lol”

Setting their nickname to a staff members name, staff tag or to deceive players will not be tolerated.

Player sets his custom tag to [||||||||||||||||||||||||]

Player sets his custom tag to [kingfagoot]

Either tag would be removed and no token would be given back to the player then the punishment would be given dependant on their offense.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT abuse of perms

“DevisDaddy > look at my nick lol”

This nickname is fine, even if its including a staff members name its in a positive light and not offensive or harassing anyone.

“[NotaMod]”

This tag does include the staff rank name but in the context of the tag it reads as if its saying they are not that rank.

Bug Exploiting

Using a native bug within minecraft or in game caused by one of the plugins to have an unfair advantage

CHANGE OUT MUTE FOR A TEMPORARY BAN

Block Glitching:

If a player is using block glitching to attempt to tower and get an unfair advantage within a game

Abusing Plugin setup:

If the player is using a thing that would be considered a bug that needs to be patched instead of reporting it to the server staff

Player attempts to block glitch in pvp

Not tolerated and its punishable

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Bug Exploiting

Using Mines with bots to mine quicker

This is fine because it not a bug that breaks the gameplay of the server

Mute & Ban Evasion

Priority 1

Using methods on the server to attempt an evasion of a punishment.

Mute Evasion:

If a player is getting on alts or using ingame content to try and argue about their prior punishment

Ban Evasion:

If the player is getting on alt accounts to argue how a ban is not justified and cause problems

”I was muted wrongfully and this is fucking bullshit”

This kind of message shows the player is not there to have a civil discussion over their punishment and should be punished further.

”/msg Staff member UNBAN ME UNBAN ME UNBAN ME NOWWW”

Spamming a staff member to try and get unbanned is not tolerated on the server and will result in a punishment.

Player gets on alts and attempts to spam chat telling staff to unban them

This mindset is not tolerated on the server and will result in a punishment.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Mute / Ban evasion

Player gets on an alt and plays the server without discourse

This is fine for the banned or muted player to do as long as they do not break any rules or cause drama they can continue to play on that account.

The player messages a staff member on an alt about the punishment

If the player sends a message to one of the members of the staff team about their ban then the right course of action would be to link them to the forums to appeal their ban or mute and link them the store for the unban & unmute section.

Bypassing a Chat filter

Priority 2 Words

Attempting to put a word blocked by our internal filters

Caps Bypassing:

Spacing out capital letters and intentionally trying to bypass a filter that limits the usage of capital letters.

Inappropriate Language:

Using language on the server that is in the word blacklist and intentionally trying to send words blocked by it.

Priority 2 words:

Under the second priority it will mainly consist of light racial slurs & directly offensive material towards another player.

Note: The chat filter primarily covers racial slurs but any words bypassed by it would be notable by incorporation of “.,;’” within a word

”Wow player you are such a dirty ch/nk”

This is bypassing the chat filter by trying to type bitch but including the “/” within the word to bypass the filter.

“Player you should go commit sewer slide you wh.ore”

This example highlights two different word cases. “Sewer slide” in this case is not acceptable because of the context, since its directed towards the player in a offensive manner. The second word “whore” is a word blacklisted and they are using it to bypass the filter

“H1TL33R did nothing wrong!! ”

Saying this is taking what some might find offensive and bypassing the chat filter

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Bypassing the filter

“Lol you should go commit sewer slide”

This is not bypassing the filter. Even if the word they mean is suicide the context of the conversation may imply that this is a joke and if the player doesn’t find it offensive there is no reason to pursue a punishment.

“Suck my dick”

If its not directed towards a player its fine as long as the context of the conversation implies its a joke

“9/11 was tragic”

This message may correlate with the conversation a player is having about a tragic event and depending on the context may not be inherently offensive or directed to another player on the server.

NOTE: Make sure to punish them after understanding the context of a conversation

Priority 3

Offence

Description

Examples

Hacks that require proof

The use of game breaking modifications that give an advantage to the user above the players on the server

Client Hacks:

Using any form of game modifications that may increase the gameplay or make native functions easier for the player

Note: Be careful when punishing for anything in this section and be aware of any lag the player might have.

PROOF IS REQUIRED FOR ANY OF THE EXAMPLES

Nuker

This hack allows the player tp break blocks and mine the most blocks in the shortest amount of time.

Note: Make sure the player is not lagging

Kill Aura / Forcefield

This hack allows the player to hit multiple players at once, or to hit one player at the precise hit distance.

Bow Aimbot / Aimbot

Will automatically snap towards the closest player/entity to aim at it

NoFall

Removes fall damage during fall events that would normally damage the player by making the client thing the player is always grounded.

Hacks that do not require proof

The use of game breaking modifications that give an advantage to the user above the players on the server

Client Hacks:

Using any form of game modifications that may increase the gameplay or make native functions easier for the player

Note: Be careful when punishing for anything in this section and be aware of any lag the player might have.

Proof is not required for staff of Mod+ but is better to include.

Anti Knockback

Using any form of a anti knockback hack that disables the players ability to be pushed backwards.

Note: Make sure the player is not lagging

Derp

A hack that makes the player move sporadically in place. The time to tell if the player is hacking is if they are moving in a straight line without issues.

Regeneration

Unnatural health regeneration rate (in most instances you will hear the sound of a lot of footsteps). Normally if the armor breaks they have regen.

Speed Hacking

Incredibly fast walking speed

Note: Make sure the players walking movement is fluid if the movement speed is jittery it is most likely lag.

Jesus Hacks / Walking on water

The ability to walk on water. Make sure the player is actually walking on the water as if its a solid block, otherwise it might be lag with a swimming animation.

Teleport Hacks

Teleports the player to a specified place on the player click event. (similar to enderpearls) If they are not using enderpearls and teleporting through walls or blocks the player is hacking.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT hacking

Increased Fly Speed

Due to the velocity increase in different versions for take off speeds we do not punish this speed increase

Increased swimming speed

1.13+ Clients can swim faster due to newer versions adding aquatic mechanics

For other allowed game modifications please refer to the allowed mod section

Doxxing Threats

Threatening to release personal information about another player on the server

Threats to release personal information publicly:

Not posting any information about the user in chat and only pertaining to threats made to that player

Threatening to use a players personal information to blackmail them:

Private messaging another player threatening to use information they claim to have to try and get something from them

“Player if you dont shut the fuck up im going to dox you scrub”

Saying this is a threat saying they will find out the other users information and use it against them. This kind of behaviour is absolutely not tolerated on the server

“/msg player give me 10000 or im going to dox you”

Saying this is a threat saying they will find out the other users information and use it against them. This kind of behaviour is absolutely not tolerated on the server

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT a doxxing threat

“I know where you live player!”

Depending on the context of the conversation if this is a comment joking about another person than it is not punishable

“Player i will find you and i will kill you”

A comment like this could relate to pvp in game or it could be referencing the movie taken, always pay attention to the context of a conversation to understand if something is a broken rule.

Malicious Scams

Attempting to send a player a link or means to scam them out of money or hijack their accounts

Adult Websites

Harassing another player with the intent to cause drama and using inappropriate language

Attempting to direct the player to a adult website:

If a player is sending a link in chat that might contain adult images.

Racism & Discrimination

Harassing another player with the intent to cause drama and using inappropriate language

Racism:

Discrimination against a specific race

Discrimination:

The treatment of another person based off of race, religion or disability.

“You should be hung you n****r”

“Wow you are such a chink player”

Using racial slurs to devalue another person for playing a game is completely unacceptable on the server.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT Racism and Discrimination

“Lol you Faggot”

“Lol you thot”

With either of the words above this should be based off of the context in the conversation and whether or not they mean it to discriminate against the other player.

Player says a single racial slur

Under this BECAUSE IT IS NOT DIRECTED TOWARDS ANOTHER PLAYER it is only a warning then a perm mute not a ban. If they continue then proceed with the standard punishments.

Player says nigga

Warn the player and if they continue perm mute then proceed with the standard punishments.

Mild Botting

Harassing another player with the intent to cause drama and using inappropriate language

Botting:

The only time botting is a bannable offence is when a player uses it to cause havoc within the server.

NOTE: If the player is using bots to use within the game function that’s fine.

A Player uses the bots to spam chat

If this happens the ip of the player will be banned for the time above

A Player uses the bots to harass a player

If this happens the ip of the player will be banned for the time above

Inappropriate Usernames:

Names that pertain to tragic events, racial slurs, staff names

NOTE: The player should be perm banned with a appeal link telling them to change their name to play the server.

A Player joins with the name DirtyMexicant

Since the nature of the name is racist this player would be banned for it.

Below this point will be examples of what is NOT a Inappropriate name

A player joins the server with DuckLicker

This is fine as it isn’t inherently sexual and can be seen as a joke

A player joins the server with Sex in the name

Depending on the full name this is fine as long as it isn’t directly sexual

Preventing others from playing

Obstruction of gameplay

Portal Trapping:

Putting a player inside of a portal, or other area where they cannot get out and continue playing

Permanent Scams:

Making a shop arrangement where one player can indefinitely profit off of another, with the other player unable to stop the arrangement.

A Player teleports another player into a nether portal (or other area they cannot get away from), and traps them inside

This is preventing the player from playing, and the trapper would be banned for it

A Player has another player place a sell chest-shop on their plot, then prevents the other player from removing it

This is preventing the player from gaining money and playing the server

IRL Scamming:

This only covers the act of a player not paying the amount of in game money to someone who already paid for the promised product with real money.

Player says they will pay 10,000 in game for flare. Other player buys it and the Player does not give them the money.

This is a scam and unacceptable, the player who promised in game money will be blacklisted and the other player who purchased using real money will be given the equal amount of credit on the store.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT IRL Scamming

Player pays for it using in game money and the other player does not buy the rank

Since the nature of this is only a In game scam this is fine.

Any form of information about the player that other player does not want publicly distributed will result in a blacklist.

”Lmao guys the player lives in ontario canada and his name is james!!!”

Any form of information about the player that other player does not want publicly distributed will result in a blacklist.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT general harassment

“Oh hi Daniel”

If the player is fine with other players using their name then its not spreading personal information

“Hey guys if you want to call me by Max instead thats cool”

In this case the player is letting others know its fine to call them by their name and its breaking this rule

“/msg player Add me on discord if you want to talk! Devbukkit#0420!!”

The player is giving out their discord but in a private message to talk.

Doxxing Staff

Doxxing staff:

Talking in explicit details about the staffs private information and attempting to use that as leverage in some fashion

”LOL The staff members phone number is 555-555-5555”

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Doxxing staff

“Oh hi Daniel”

If the staff member is fine with other players using their name then its not spreading personal information

“Hey Staff member can i call you by your real name?”

This kind of question is completely fine and its up to you to decide whether or not you want the player to be able to call you by your name.

Chargebacks & Fraud

Chargebacks:

Are when a player filed a fraudulent claim with their bank saying that what they purchased was either not as described or a false charge they did not make on their account.

Player proceeds to file a chargeback

If the player files a chargeback they will be banned and blacklisted by one of the higher staff members.

Player chargebacks on a payment for another player

In this case of the chargeback the player will have to be investigated and the higher staff team will ban the purchaser’s account and remove the items chargebacked from the victims account.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Doxxing staff

“Im going to chargeback my rank!”

This is not them admitting to filing a chargeback, in this case they are threatening a chargeback so you should message them the terms of service and warn them on why not to do that.

Excessive staff harassment

Using the permissions earned from either in game content or from purchasing ranks in an abusive manner

Excessive Harassment:

If a player is going out of their way to bother staff through the website, discord or through social media after a ban or mute and has already had all punishments given then they will be blacklisted

After they get banned they message the staff on discord and spam

Instead of taking the right course of action the player proceeds to message the staff in an improper manner. They will be warned then if they continue blacklisted.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Doxxing staff

“Hey, i got banned what can i do to get unbanned?”

In this case the player is trying to communicate with the staff member and not trying to initiate a situation. The staff member should send them the appeal link

Duplication Bug Exploitation

Using a native bug within minecraft or in game caused by one of the plugins to have an unfair advantage

Dupe Glitching

If a player is using a exploit within the server to duplicate items and did not report it but used it for themselves to get an advantage then they will be blacklisted

Player finds a bug and proceeds to use it to get an unfair advantage

In this case the player is abusing a bug that should have been reported to the staff team to patch it. This is not tolerated and will result in a blacklist.

Below this point will consist of examples of what is NOT Bug Exploiting

Player finds a bug, may have used it a bit but reports it

In this case if they find a bug they will be rewarded handsomely for helping make the server better and not abusing the economy.
