Transactions involving IRL money by either selling/trading: Players advertising their own Buycraft store. Scams for in game items/ranks involving IRL money, only if real money was given and the other sides items weren't. Selling Minecraft accounts/Alts. The following activities, although usually prohibited on other servers, are permitted on Minetime: Scamming other players -- Minetime doesn't involve itself in transactions it doesn't oversee. Please make sure you trust the players with whom you interact. If IRL money is not involved, it isn't punishable so don't expect your scammed items to be returned. However scams involving IRL money will be punished when real money was given to the person, but items for it weren't given in return. Using modified clients ("hacks") -- Minetime will not help you install modified clients or cater to your modified clients by delaying server updates, but you can use them. Any hack that directly harms the server (such as a crashing exploit) is still prohibited and can warrant a permanent ban. The use of "Regen hacks" is not punishable since the use of modified clients are allowed. These activities are prohibited, and are subject to punishment at Staff Discretion: Those caught exploiting our voting system to exploit vote rewards are subject to potential inventory clearing, balance clearing.
