    Official Rules
    Last Edited: 09/04/2017 (Snackk)

    All rules that are listed on this thread are now in effect as of September 8, 2017 and apply to all ranks on the Mineverge Network.
    The following rules apply to the Mineverge, Discord, and Forums.
    All users are to read and follow these rules to avoid the punishment of kick, mute or ban. If for any reason a rule needs to be changed or modified, the MineVerge Administration has the right to do so.

    Respect Staff
    The staff are members of the network as well, and they should be respect at all times. Any form of disrespect towards staff members is not allowed and could result in the player being punished accordingly. Expect staff to do their job when it involves a player being punished. Don’t complain on how staff members make the decisions in punishments, most punishments are dealt correctly. Do not argue when staff must do the right thing in dealing with situations even if it involves a close player or dedicated member when they must be banned or muted. However, if a staff member is somehow abusing their power, please submit a Staff Demotion Report to the forums and/or contact a higher staff member immediately. Creating threads solely to start unnecessary drama and arguments is not acceptable as evidence or discussions, and might result in the thread being deleted and the creator being warned depending on severity.
    Player Disrespect
    Player disrespect can take different forms. One form of it is when you use "kanker" in an offensive manner and/or at another player. If seen or reported using the word offensively, you will be muted and if used excessively you will be muted for a longer time. Another form of player disrespect is if you continuously cuss or make fun of someone else on the server. Disrespecting any user is not allowed and will be taken seriously on the Mineverge network.


    Sharing personal information

    Keep in mind that sharing personal information is at your own risk, this includes buying and selling accounts and usage of account data & status. We are not responsible for unbanning accounts that has broken the rules by another user that has access to that account(s). Take note to unexpected interactions made by another user of your account(s). Otherwise, it’s best recommended that you secure your account and personal information you use and not give it away in any source.
    Remember, staff are not responsible for loss of account information removed from your access.

    Hacking/Unfair advantages

    Usage of hacked clients or Disallowed client modifications to offer unfair advantages to gameplay isn’t allowed and will result in a long term to permanent ban. Exploiting or abusing server setup bugs or glitches is also bannable on the same term.

    Please view the Allowed & Disallowed client Modifications list shown here: http://mineverge.net/threads/disallowed-allowed-clients.2621/#post-13338

    Screen-Sharing

    Any Staff Member has the right to ask you to Screen-Share if they feel you are hacking. If you refuse or deny the request, this will result to a ban. Logging off or Disconnecting from the server will also result to a ban. However, if you believe they are abusing this permission, please contact a higher staff member immediately.

    Impersonation

    Do not manipulate and make someone think that you’re another person of the MineVerge staff team. Impersonating staff is prohibited, and will be dealt with according to the staff’s judgement. There are also other sides of pretending to be a specific user which also counts as impersonation. (Example: claiming that you’re the ‘alt’ of that person or pointing out to players that “you are a mod”, etc.) Normally Moderators and Helpers will have their prefix that show the [Mod] or [Helper] tag.

    DDoS attacks
    DDoS attacks towards players is strictly prohibited on the highest level. Players found attempting or threatening to attack or threatening to expose personal info will be banned from the network and forums.
    Racism & Hate
    Racism, bigotry, ageism, personal threats, or other forms of hate speech are strictly prohibited on the MineVerge Network. This includes usernames, Skins, nudity, pornography, images, graphics and slang terms. There are other ways to point out hate, have common sense when it comes to you being punished on these cases. Forum respect is may apply as well. Breaking the rules repeatedly will result into a Perm-Mute.

    Reporting and Appealing

    It is the staff team’s job to deal with any rule breakers but it is your responsibility to report them; if you encounter a user breaking any rule(s) contact staff or create a report (with sufficient proof) here: http://mineverge.net/forums/player-report.22/
    Skype screenshots / logs are not considered sufficient proof.
    Temporary bans cannot be appealed for unless you believe it is unjustified.
    Bans for advertisements cannot be appealed for.
    Keep in mind that your player report may not be the only one we have
    so be patient.
    Please do not edit videos, such as slow motion or speeding up the video. You only make it harder for staff to tell if the player is actually hacking.

    Chat Spam & Excessive caps
    There are various forms of spam, which all aren’t allowed on the server, some include character spam, general spam, chat flood, caps spam, and message spam. Character spam is any excessive amount of letters or punctuation of or exceeding 10 characters in a row. Chat flood and message spam are generally the same, chat flood is when a player says 4 or more messages in a row without any interruption such as another player’s chat. Caps spam is when a player types out 5 or more words, or a random excessive amount of capital letters in a row. Lastly, there is just general spam, which is when a player repeats the same messages multiple times in a rapid sequence.
    Spamming on the forums or posting chunks of similar threads is unacceptable, including unnecessary triple posts and comments could result in getting punished on the forums.

    Advertising
    Mentioning another server IP is not permitted and will result in a permanent ban from the MineVerge Network, and certain cases, forums as well. Saying a server name is disallowed but will only result in a warning. Posting links not relevant to MineVerge is also included in this rule. Such as social medias, random websites, etc.

    Warp Traps &TPA Traps (Skyblock)
    You are not allowed to build redstone machines to kill players using the warp signs and TPA feature on the Skyblock server (Example: using a pressure plate to activate a piston to suffocate players in blocks). This is considered abusing permission setup (glitches) on the server.

    AFK Mining

    Mining while you are away from your computer is prohibited. We will generally stand in front of the player multiple times until we get your response. If you fail to respond you will be punished

    Scamming(Skyblock)
    Scamming other players and griefing other player's islands is now a punishable offence. If you are caught doing it or reported doing it you will be punished as the staff decides. When reporting a player who has griefed or scammed you provide as much evidence as you can and if we see it sufficient, the user will be punished. However, if someone steals items from you or your island we will not be responsible for replacing those items. Be careful of who you invite to your island!

    Suicide Encouragement
    Many players come to the server to PvP, relax, and farm. Communication is prior to the community of MineVerge. Posting messages encouraging player(s) to commit suicide is strictly forbidden and will be dealt with. Normally players do not see suicide messages such as “kys” or “drink bleach” as standard ‘trash talk’, and wouldn’t be taken as a joke.

    Common Sense

    Rules that are not listed above fall under the category "common sense". Please follow the rules and think before you type.

    Forum Rules
    Abuse of the post-rating feature is not allowed.

    Bumping threads outside of your ban appeal isn't allowed.


    Post links to phishing sites or other harmful web-pages is strictly prohibited.

    Please do not openly argue with anyone. Contact them via a private message.


    Starting, encouraging and contributing to server drama discussions is strictly prohibited and not allowed. Doing so will result in the thread being locked, continuous drama threads will result in a ban.


    Do not advertise for other servers. This will result in a network ban apart from the forums.
