Rules and Regulations


Welcome to CreativeFun,
a server dedicated to ensuring that people of all ages and background are able
to safely engage themselves in the countless activities available on our server.



In order for that possibility, we need your cooperation in following our few simple, important rules.
Please make sure that you read through all of them carefully!



Any incomprehension or confusion regarding our rules is to be brought immediately to staff members.
"I didn't know / understand the rules" is NOT grounds for release from punishment.


It is your job to keep up with the rules and to not break them. There will be no excuses of "Oh, but I didn't get a warning." as warnings are given by the jurisdiction of the staff member.


If you do not get muted after 30 days from your previous mute, your mute history will be cleared. This does not apply if you have been permanently muted.

Permanent Ban

No Advertising
Advertising server IPs or website URLs. Includes global and local chat, private messages and mail, signs, books, and builds.


No Griefing
The intentional destruction of another's build

Using hacked or modded game clients. Shaders/resource packs, optifine, and TabbyChat are permitted. You may be banned for admitting to hacks as well as being seen using them.


No Inappropriate Builds
Builds which violate our server rules, such as those showing inappropriate statues, strip clubs, 9/11 builds, concentration camps, slavery, religious/racially offensive builds, cursing, or inappropriate speech, etc.


No Inappropriate Skins
Nude and/or graphic player skins will result in a permanent ban until the skin is changed.

Permanent ban. Posting personal identifying information such as phone numbers, real names [unless the player shares their first name of their own accord], locations, emails, or account passwords without the owner's permission.

Mutes

No Caps
Do not post messages using a large amount of capitals. Local and /msg are excluded.


No Intentional Spam
Players intentionally clogging chat by means such as posting song lyrics, wikipedia articles, posting using one word at a time etc, may first receive two to three warnings from staff members. Continuing to do so after warnings may result in a mute. This is at the online staff members' discretion.


No Group Spam
If many users are flooding chat with messages about one particular thing in an attempt to spam (current example being the "bill nye" or "exotic butters" spam). Group spam is now punishable if it is reported.
If there are 8 or more messages in one chat frame of the same or similar message, all players contributing to the group spam will be punished.
If group spam begins when staff are still online, they are permitted to give two (2) verbal warnings and mute if these verbal warnings are ignored. This is in order to prevent group spam from getting out of hand; staff members do not have to wait for the 8 message limit to mute if they are online.


No Chat Spam
3+ of the same/similar message by one user within the chat frame in /global or /server


No Msg Spam
5+ of the same message within the chat frame in /msg is punishable.


Chat Frame Defined
The chat frame is the expanded box you see when typing a chat message (open with t). We will not always accept reports if the chat frame is made too large through user settings, as this gives an unfair view on chat. A chatbox size of 180px tall by 320px wide (or smaller) with a scale of 75% or higher (75-100) is preferred.


No Letter/Number/Symbol Spam
Random letters, numbers, or symbols one full or partial line in length shall first receive a verbal warning, and then a mute for a repeated offense after the warning. Random letters two lines in length shall receive an immediate mute. If reported, may be muted for one message two lines or greater in length. Applies to all chats.
- /global and /server - Three or more messages containing either a single letter or a short group of random letters shall receive a mute, whether seen in chat or reported (includes countdowns/countups).
- /msg - Five or more messages containing either a single letter or a short group of random letters shall receive a mute, whether seen in chat or reported (includes countdowns/countups).


No Advertising in /Global
Users advertising skin comps, builds, roleplays, dating centres, etc in global may first be asked to move to /advertising. Continuing to advertise in /global may result in a mute. This is at the online staff members' discretion.
If reported for advertising in global three times, users may be muted. This is at resolving staff members' discretion.


No Encouraging Spam

Rules not limited to those posted.
Reminder that yes, this is a thing. If a staff member warns you for being a nuisance, you should listen to them, or you can and will be punished.

Due to people taking advantage of the lack of a message limit to post insanely long advertisements and messages, two new rules are now in effect:

Advertisement Spam - Advertisements in chat (roleplays, build help, games, etc) exceeding three lines (3) in length may first receive two to three warnings from staff members. Continuing to use excessively long advertisements after warnings may result in a mute, at the online staff members' discretion.
Intentional Spam - Players intentionally clogging chat by means such as copy/pasting song lyrics, wikipedia articles, etc, may first receive two to three warnings from staff members. Continuing to do so after warnings may result in a mute, at the online staff members' discretion.

A clarification of the former "rules not limited to those posted" statement.

Doxxing is now a permanent ban, not temporary.
