Community Rules

Be kind. Be courteous.

We are a community of people of different ages and backgrounds. We pride ourselves in having an environment that is welcoming to anyone who joins us. We ask all out players to treat each other with respect, lend a helping hand, and join the fun!

We’re not the Fun Police, but we don’t tolerate bullying, hate-speech or trolling. We do allow swearing, but keep in mind that we do have players that may be young so please try to self-censor depending on who is online. We have channels available to use so that you can speak more freely.

What constitutes as hate-speech, you ask?
Anything that can be considered derogatory or insulting to a group of people. Punch up, not down.

What happens if you break this rule?
Depending on the severity, you may be reminded of the rules and asked to move to a private channel. You may be forcibly moved into another channel, or /silence’d. Take it too far and you’re looking at a ban.

Educate yourself.

The servers are constantly improving with new features and plugins. We do not expect you to be masters in everything on the server.

We do, however, expect you to be able to use google to answer your questions about certain aspects of the game (crafting recipes etc.). If Google searches fail, server staff will always be happy to answer your questions.

We do highlight certain updates to the server through our blog posts (under announcements) with details on certain plugin commands.

Honesty is the best policy.

We know players can, at times, make mistakes and experience misunderstanding. We do ask that all members be forthcoming and open when issues arise, especially to staff members who are trying to resolve a situation.

Apply for promotions.

You are absolutely allowed to ask for a promotion!

Staff may notice you deserve a promotion without you asking, but we highly encourage aspiring to move up in the server. Keep in mind that promotions are always sequential — we don’t skip ranks.

How long should you wait to ask?
Staff members factor in your involvement with the server, your attitude, your playtime, and what you’ve built while on the server. Ranks are designed to be held for a good long while, so don’t be offended if the Staff don’t think you’re quite there yet. Just keep hanging out and building cool shit!

Ranks apply to both DMZ and MCNSA, if you’re a zeta on one server, you’re a zeta on the other. Currently ranks are manually shared between servers, so if your rank is incorrect on one server, request that your rank be changed by contacting a staff member.

Don’t grief or steal.

Don’t waste your time trying to grief — you will be found out, banned, and the damage will be fixed in a matter of minutes.

Spread out and protect your homes!

In our experience, we have found that players are like tigers — each have vast tracts of land they like to wander and hunt. When these territories overlap, shit gets ugly. Please help us prevent shit getting ugly by leaving at least a 200-300 block buffer between you and other players homesteads. Unless, of course, you’re living in a town — in which case this would be a stupid idea.

Make sure to protect your things using the GriefPrevention and LWC plugins. If you have a very large area like a 32-chunk-long ship or a town, ask a Staff member and they will create a protected region for you.

Don’t use game-breaking exploits.

This is basically to prevent any advantages over other players. Things like auto-tillers, auto-attackers, auto-clickers, afk farms and grinders, fly hacks, and X-Ray hacks all count as game-breaking. Did you know it’s incredibly easy to tell if you’ve been using X-Ray? All the Staff know what to look for.

If you do discover a game-breaking bug. Please inform a staff member privately so that it is fixed. 

What happens if you get caught?
You’ll be demoted and potentially have your chest and inventory wiped, and you’d have to start from scratch.

Mods that are considered okay are things like Rei’s Minimap, Optifine or Inventory Tweaks. If you’re unsure if you’re allowed a client mod, ask a Staff member!

Don’t PVP without consent.

We are not a dedicated PVP server, however, we do allow PVP if all players involved have consented to it.

If you are being attacked by another player without agreeing to the PVP. The best thing to do is to /spawn and inform a staff member.

Spelling and grammar matter.

Our community members primarily speak English. We do ask that all players speak English in the main chat channels to ensure that everyone can understand each other. You are free to speak whatever language you wish in private channels. You might find that your English may improve if it is not your first language.

This rule also includes spamming chat with typing in caps, repetitive phrases, words, symbols etc.
