    BlockMania Server Rules:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Want to appeal a ban? Click [here].
    ---
    Think someone's cheating? Report them [here].


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Simplified Rules:

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Hacking.


    This includes any client mods that give you an advantage over other players.

    Any mods not listed in the “allowed mods” section are considered “hacks” for the purpose of the rules.*

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Posting Personal Information. (Even if it's a "joke.")

    This means you can not post: Skype accounts, Facebook pages, Real life images, Phone numbers, Addresses, or any other personal information.

    This also includes threatening or blackmailing people with their personal information, even if you consider it a “joke”.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Threats Against the Server. (Even if it's a "joke.")

    This includes threatening to DDOS, hack, or otherwise exploit the server or our websites whether you’re "joking" or not.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Personal Threats Against Players. (Even if it's a "joke.")

    This includes threatening to DDOS, hack, expose personal information, suicide encouragement/jokes (towards others or yourself.), and any other threats that don't involve the game.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Bypassing the Chat Filter.

    We now have a chat filter in place. It's there for a reason. If you substitute other characters or use exploits to bypass the chat filter you may be punished.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Inappropriate Usernames.

    Any username that would be filtered in chat are not allowed. Read below for more details.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    No Ban Evading.

    If you get banned and believe it was a mistake, please submit a ban appeal, join our Teamspeak server, or email a staff member.
    Do not join on an alternate account and continue playing and expect us to give you another chance. Using another account does not mean you're a new person.

    ---------------------------------------------------------​

    If you have any questions about the rules just ask us. If you think something might be against the rules, ask us first so you don’t have to make a ban appeal later.

    Email any questions to MassiveChoons@blockmania.com or ask any staff member on the server. (You can see which colors are staff ranks by typing /who on any server.)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notes:

    If you get to know us, you’ll find our staff is made up of reasonable, understanding people but we own our servers and we reserve the right to punish anyone at our discretion.

    Even if something isn’t specifically listed in the rules, that doesn’t mean we can’t mute/kick/ban you if we think it’s needed. Our staff will do whatever we think is appropriate to make it fun and fair for all players.

    These rules are subject to change at any time and are a work in progress.


    TL;DR: Use common sense and don’t waste both of our time testing our limits.

    Full Rules:

    On our servers we do our best to create plugins that prevent people from being able to cheat or otherwise make the game unfair or less fun for other players, that being said, our plugins will never be perfect so we have a number of rules to keep the server fun and fair for everyone, including:

    ---------------------------------------------------------​

    1, Hacking.
    Sounds obvious, right? Here’s what we consider to be “cheating”:

    Mods that give you advantages such as:

    ~ Fly mods.

    ~ Speed mods.

    ~ Combat mods.

    ~ Mods that enhance your vision to let you see more blocks than you’re supposed to.

    are NOT allowed.

    *Other methods of gaining advantages over players that don't necessarily use mods are still cheating.

    If you are caught using any of these by our staff you may be warned, kicked, and/or banned from our servers temporarily or permanently.

    Being a premium member or donating for perks in our store does not mean you’re allowed to break the rules.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    2, Excessive Harassment | Threats | Suicide Encouragement.
    This one is a little bit complicated. TL;DR: Keep it in the game.

    We don’t ban people for stupid reasons like simply disrespecting our staff or just plain being annoying. However, we reserve the right to kick/mute/ban any player that we feel is making the game less fun, unfair, or dangerous, for other players.

    A big example of this is harassing a player or staff member is sharing their personal information:

    If you post a player or staff member’s personal information in chat such as their facebook, pictures, phone number, address etc. you will be banned instantly with no chance to appeal.

    This also includes death threats, suicide encouragement, telling someone to end their life, etc.

    The main thing is: don’t be an idiot.

    You can talk trash, use profanity, scam people, trick people, backstab your teammates, destroy and steal anything you want as long as you keep it IN the game.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    3, Personally Identifying Information.
    Posting personal information of any kind is not allowed.
    This includes, but is not limited to; real names, pictures, phone numbers, addresses, facebook links, etc.

    This also includes your own information. It's not our obligation to find out if you're actually posting your own information or not.
    It's much easier to just keep it out of chat. There is no reason you should need to post personal information of any kind in public chat.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    4, Chat Rules: Racism, Profanity, And Staff Disrespect.
    We try not to restrict the chat too much but there are certain things we can not allow. Most of our players come from NameMC and many of them are fairly young. So:

    No:
    - Racial slurs, DDOS references or suicide references are NOT allowed. Even if you're "joking." (This also applies to usernames.)

    - Blatant racism, DDOS references, suicide/death threats (including jokes) in the chat are NOT allowed.

    Yes:
    - Profanity IS allowed as long as it's not excessive.
    - Disrespecting staff members is NOT punishable. (However, if you expect staff to help you when you need it, they'll expect you to talk to them in a respectful manner.)

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    5, Inappropriate Usernames.
    Any of the chat rules listed above also apply to usernames.

    If you sign in with a username that contains phrases or terms that would normally be restricted in chat, that account will be banned.

    If you wish to join just to link your account to NameMC with the /namemc account that's fine, you will be given warning, but that account will be banned after you're finished.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    6, Payment Complications.
    If you donate to our server and receive perks and then your payment does not go through or is disputed, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from using our servers until we sort out the issue.

    If you have any questions about payment issues please email Business@BlockMania.com and we will respond as soon as we can.

    If you do not get an answer right away, keep in mind we receive and respond to a large volume of emails every day.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    7, Ban Evading.
    If you're banned on one account and you log in on another, you will be banned. If you want to speak to someone then email me, make a ban appeal [Link coming soon.], or join our TS.

    If you have several accounts on the same IP it's not our responsibility to sort out which one is you or your sister or your mom. All accounts on the same IP are subject to the same punishment if one gets banned/kicked/muted/etc.​

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    8, Account Buying/Selling/Trading.
    Buying, Selling, and Trading accounts is against Mojang's Terms of Service.

    We do not condone account trading on our server.

    We understand that account trading has become a large part of the Minecraft community so we do not actively punish people for discussing account trades in chat but we will absolutely not condone it.

    This means we will delete any posts about it on the forums, and restrict links to any sites that do condone account sales.
    Do not ask us to help you if you were scammed, or to unban accounts that you supposedly purchased off a player.

    Essentially, there is a simple trick to avoid all of this: don't trade accounts on our server.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Notes:

    If you get to know us, you’ll find our staff is made up of reasonable, understanding people but we own our servers and we reserve the right to punish anyone at our discretion.

    Even if something isn’t specifically listed in the rules, that doesn’t mean we can’t mute/kick/ban you if we think it’s needed. Our staff will do whatever we think is appropriate to make it fun and fair for all players.

    These rules are subject to change at any time and are a work in progress.
