    Note: 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
    + No Hacks/Mods - Using hacked or modded game clients.
    + 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.
    + No Inappropriate Usernames - Usernames which violate server rules will result in a permanent ban until the name is changed. Includes inappropriate speech,cursing, drug references, and advertising other servers.
    + No Inappropriate /home Names - /home names which violate server rules will result in the creator of the /home being banned
    + No Bypassing a Ban - Will result in permanent ban of alt accounts and potentially an IP ban

    Temporary Ban
    + No Cursing in Books or Signs - 7 day tempban
    + No Inappropriate Speech in Books or Signs - 7 day tempban
    + No Bullying/Harassment in Books or Signs - 7 day tempban
    + No Racism in Books or Signs - 7 day tempban
    + No Referencing Drugs or Alcohol in Books or Signs - 7 day tempban
    + No Threats in Books or Signs - 7 day tempban
    + No Advertising Realms via Signs or Books - 7 day tempban
    + No Inappropriate Item Names - 3 day tempban
    + No Linked Advertising - 7 day tempban (msg me for a server)
    + Any of the above in /mail - 1 day tempban
    + Bypassing a Mute in /mail, /helpop, sign, book, alternate account, etc - tempban for 1 day. (Asking why they got muted is okay, but not if they continuously keep asking or demanding to be unmuted after receiving an explanation)

    Mute (/punish)
    + No Caps -
    (Do not post messages using a large amount of capitals. Local and /msg are excluded.)
    + No Spam - Types of Spam:
    Intentional Spam -
    Players intentionally clogging chat by means such as copy/pasting 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.
    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.
    Local Spam - 5+ of the same message within the chat frame in local chat is punishable. /punish <user> Spam in /local
    Msg Spam - 5+ of the same message within the chat frame in /msg is punishable. /punish <user> Spam in /lmsg
    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 -
    Letter/number/symbol spam -
    random letters one full line or more in length shall first receive a verbal warning, and then a mute for a repeated offense after the warning. If reported, may be muted for one message two lines or greater in length. Three or more messages containing either a single letter or a short group of random letters shall receive a mute (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 - (Such as saying "say 123 to adopt a girl" or "say 678 if you love minecraft." Does not apply to local. advertisement chat or /msg)
    + No Encouraging Tag Spam - (Asking to be @tagged in chat)
    + No Cursing - (Includes acronyms and abbreviations such as ffs and stfu,and intentionally altered spellings to bypass)
    + No Sexual/Inappropriate Speech - (Including but not limited to: advertising inappropriate clubs/builds/roleplays, soliciting Inappropriate roleplays, and using sexual terms such as the proper names and slang names for genitalia)
    + No Inappropriate Roleplays - (Roleplaying inappropriate activity, see"Sexual/Inappropriate Speech")
    + No Slave Talk - (Roleplaying slavery, asking for slaves, etc)
    + No Drug Talk - (ie asking for drugs,talking about drug use) (Includes alcohol)
    + No Racism - (Such as racial slurs, prejudice towards other races,discrimination/harassment of other players based on race)
    + No Bullying/Harassment - (Intentional harassment/degradation of another player)
    + No Staff Disrespect - (Excessively arguing with, disrespecting, or harassing staff. You will generally be verbally warned for this, but can be muted if it is severe and/or warnings are ignored)
    + No Violent Talk in Global Chat - (Such as saying you want to harm/kill another player, discussion of suicide, violent roleplays, or anything else with violent intent)
    + No Discussion of or References to Suicide - (Saying "kill yourself," "drink bleach," etc, or saying you are going to commit suicide, or talking about somone else committing suicide.)
    + No Hack Threats - (Threatening to hack the server and/or other players'accounts/computers)
    + No Encouraging Players to Break Rules - (eg saying "Hey you guys should start cursing since staff are gone")
    + No Advertising Plug.dj, YouTube, or stream such as Twitch - (sending links to plug.dj communities, youtube videos, twitch streams, etc. Not allowed due to complaints of players linking inappropriate communities)
    + No Advertising Realms - (Asking players to join their realm, saying "msg to join my realm," etc)

    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.
