    **EDIT: This thread is void as of 9 June 2015. The new, updated rules can be found here.**

    Hey Minetimers, we’re finally posting a list of formal rules. It seems like there have been a lot more issues lately with all the new players coming in. This will be a list of formal rules about mutes, bans, and kicks. There will also be a miscellaneous section about questions that are often asked by new players, but aren’t really rules.

    These activities warrant a temporary ban:
    -Griefing (Applies to Skyblock and Survival only): You can get griefers temporarily banned for griefing by providing proof (picture or video), but the person has to be visibly griefing. (A griefer is a player who deliberately irritates and harasses other players within the game, using aspects of the game in unintended ways.)
    -Bullying: It must be confirmed by a staff member.
    -Spamming: Usually, we only mute people for spam. The only time this usually happens is when you fill up the whole chat, in turn annoying a staff member.

    These activities warrant a permanent ban:
    -Payment Chargeback: If you don’t know what this is, ask your parents.
    -Advertising other servers: This rule goes under common sense. No server owner would want people advertising other servers on their server, so please refrain from doing so.
    -Launching DDoS attacks or threats towards others: This is usually only an issue on the Factions server.
    -Threatening to hack other players

    These activities warrant a temporary mute:
    -Profanity: There are many young people who play on the server. It’s not right for those who don’t know swears or those who don’t like to read/see it to have to see it. (profanity as in obscene language)
    -Spamming: Spam is never a good thing. Hopefully you all know what spamming is.
    -Bullying: It must be confirmed by a staff member.

    These activities warrant being kicked from a server (kicking just means that you’ll be forced offline, but you can get back on right away):
    -Firework spamming
    -Standing in front of a staff member who is trying to fix/build something important

    Miscellaneous:
    -Using modified clients ("hacking") is allowed. Please don’t ask us how to do this. If you really want to know how to "hack", you’ll have to figure it out on your own.
    -Scamming is technically allowed. You shouldn’t scam for real life money or ranks, but it’s still done. Unless payments are overseen by us, we don’t deal with them.
    -Do not ask owners for free ranks or items. They will not be given to you.
    -Helper/Moderator/Builder applications: Helper/Moderator applications are not currently being accepted. We will eventually be putting up Helper/Moderator applications on the forums. You can put pictures of your builds in a thread for us to look at.
    -If a player is really annoying you, there’s always the choice of the “ignore” command.
    -Unless the owners say it themselves, then there’s always a chance of receiving false information.
    -"[Admin]" is not a staff rank on our server, and it never will be. The main people you should get help from would be helpers, moderators, and owners.
    -Inappropriate plots on creative can be reported and deleted (by an owner).
    -/me has been taken away from all servers, and /kick has been taken away from creative
    -Impersonating staff is not allowed
    -Owners/Co-owners formally announced: CollinPotato, thegamerfreak98, MinetimeSupport

    There are always exceptions to the rules above. (If you get kicked, muted, or banned for none of the reasons above, then there must have been a very good reason.)

    Why were you bullying?

    @MinetimeSupport Are you allowed firework spamming if it's only your friend around and they don't mind it?

    In future please don't be so aggressive to me.
    I am completely fine after that.
    You should apologize to the people you bullied.
    That would greatly increase your chances of being un banned! :)

    If you were banned for bullying, it must've been pretty bad.

    "Any Partner contesting a credit or debit card charge, or a monetary transfer charge after submitting an application authorizing ClubShop to charge their account will have the contested charges reported as an outstanding debt to a credit bureau. In cases where funds are not available to make these collections, we will apply a negative 100 Pay Point transaction, in order to help us recover the various costs involved with contested credit card charges that have been charged back. Any credit or debit card charge, or a monetary transfer charge that is reversed or charged back will result in a $100USD collection fee being levied against the Partner. Any checks that have been issued to the Partner that are outstanding as of the date ClubShop receives the chargeback notification will be voided immediately and will have a stop payment placed on the checks. Any Partner that contests a legitimate and authorized charge, are subject to having their membership terminated."

    How can we prove that someone is ddosing us?

    For the record 2weeks before the factions reset Collin told us all that the server was resetting that day at midnight. It was a epic troll :(
