As part of the Whitelisting process which will be required in future before people can even join the server, we wanted to give users a quick set of rules, which should hopefully help players understand what is expected of them and avoid any confusion later on (as we have had a few times with cutting trees, mining abandoned buildings, stealing from chests etc). I was hoping if we could all comment and give feedback and make some new rules, we could come togeather with some sort of Community Rules, then hopefully convience Skeven or Strategia to finalize them in some well written (SMALL!) article to go on the Whitelisting process and the site. Ill start with my below ideas: Digiex.net Server Rules Access to the server is a privilege, not a right. As such when playing in a shared world with other users, its essential that some basic rules are followed to ensure everyone gets along. If any of them are broken, you could find your whitelist withdrawn, or even worse end up with a Global ban on McBans (Global Banlist). If you are ever unsure, its best to go on the side of caution, than to go ahead and get in trouble. 1. Players are expected to use COMMON SENSE when playing! This includes not building right next to somebody's building without asking, building something massive and dwarfing someone else's building without asking, generally peeing off other players. Advertising another server will lead to a global ban. If operators have to get involved in player disputes, their decision is final and if both players can't use their common sense it's likely that both parties will be kicked! 2. If players are found to be griefing (intentionally damaging other players property) then a permanent ban will be handed out, the same applies from stealing from players chests. As all block placement / removal is logged, as well as items going in and out of chest, it's very easy for us to track down any thefts or grief. It will be an instant global ban with no chance of winning an appeal. 3. No hacking please, it ruins gameplay for other users and its downright annoying to see people flying about the place when building or roleplaying, operators can see when you use flyhacks or speedhacks and are under instructions to ban people who use them. Again, this will be a global ban which will go against you on McBans. 4. Do not harass the operators in game. There is this forum, there are many players and there is Google. If you honestly cannot seek out your answer from any of those sources, then ask an operator. Operators get fed up of being asked constantly silly questions, job requests, how to craft items, worldedit, item spawning or to TP people. The answer is simply no. Only reports they are interested in, are grief or server errors. 5. Respect the landscape. If you need wood and need to cut down a tree, be considerate and cut down the entire tree. No one wants to see trees with one block left hanging in the middle of the air. If you cut down the entire stump then the leaves will despawn and the tree will be completely removed, then just replant a tree if you have any sapling. The same goes for Towers, no one wants the landscape covered with a small dirt or nether towers, if you need to build to such heights make sure theres a reason (attractive looking Sky Scraper). Otherwise your find your work removed, and access to the server withdrawn. 6. Bigotry, Racism, Homophobia will not be tolerated at all in the server chat, nor in the world, the same goes for any Nazi symbols. If the offence is minor and clearly meant as harmless banter, you may be served instantly with a final warning, the second offence will be bannable. If its deemed serious enough, you will just be instantly banned (or have your whitelist withdrawn).
