No cheating or mods 
- Optifine, Sodium, or Lunar may be used. Litematica may be used (excluding its auto-placement function).
- Texture packs that give an unfair advantage (eg. any comparable to x-ray) are not allowed. 
- Pieray is considered xray and is not allowed.
- No one receives any favours, i.e. if you donate or have been on the server for months, if you break the rules you will be banned. 
- Alternate accounts of any banned player may also be subjected to a ban. 
- If you are pardoned and were killed prior to the ban by an admin, you are not entitled to your lost items.

No item duplication (including TNT duping) or exploiting any other glitches 
- Do not intentionally lag or crash the server.

No repeatedly killing a player at their spawn point 
- This includes hanging around the world spawn killing defenseless players. Do not follow people out of spawn (TP huts or walking) and kill them. 
- If you are attacking a player at their bed, don't kill them repeatedly, just break their bed.
- Do not trap nether portals, a player's bed, or the end platform or gateways.

No spamming 
- Spam variety #1: Posting the same/similar message repeatedly. 
- Spam variety #2: Flooding the chat with short messages to a friend for example. Do not use public chat like a phone call. If an admin tells you to stop/whisper then listen.

No advertising 
- If you are caught advertising other servers in chat, whispering, or public, you will be banned. 
- Do not joke about advertising or discuss other servers by name. 
- Do not advertise your YouTube channel. Do not ask for a special YouTube rank/privilege. One does not exist and will never exist.

Be respectful to other players  
- We are quite relaxed on what is discussed in chat, but if an admin says you've gone too far then please listen and stop. Any racist/lewd/offensive/etc commentary will be dealt with by staff on a case by case basis. Slurs are not allowed and telling others to kill themselves is not allowed. Offensive or innapropriate weapon names or mob names are not allowed.
- Do not bully other players. We understand not everyone is going to like each other. If you can't get along with someone just ignore them. Do not provoke.
- If we decide your problems with another player cannot be resolved peacefully for one reason or another and are spilling over into the entire server, we may instruct you to mute each other and not speak to each other. This is a final solution and an extreme step to resolve an issue permanently. Failure to listen can lead to a ban. This also means to not continue interacting in our discord. 
- If you are instructed not to interact with someone, you are not to attempt to circumvent this through the use of alts or by using other players.
- Do not try to get a rise out of a player who isn't supposed to be interacting with you, to try to get him/her in trouble. This includes talking about the player in open chat or our discord.

Respect the staff of the server 
- If an admin warns you to stop something, please stop. Do not push the rule limits. 
- Do not beg or repeatedly ask staff for items, teleports, etc.
- If you have a donation name colour, please do not pretend to be a staff member. Doing so may result in permanent loss of your donation colour.
- Remember that admins are volunteering their free time to help out the server. They deserve respect just the same as anyone else. Be friendly to them. 
- Respect admin decisions. If you feel that something happened truly unfairly, reach out to xmariah to discuss it. Do not make it a public argument or attack the admin. 
- No rules-lawyering. Yes, we know the rules don't/can't cover everything. If you choose to test that and we ban you, then that is an issue all to your own. Again, if you have a true complaint please bring it to staff.

Don't grief spawn. It makes us cry a little on the inside. 
- Do not wall off or dig a trench around spawn or anything else that prevents players from exiting spawn. 
- Builds within viewing distance of spawn may be removed as admins see fit to do so. 
- Do not try to lava/water/TNT/cactus/etc in or around spawn. 
- Any builds deemed to be disruptive to others are subject to removal (eg. lag machines, nazi symbols, etc.).
- Overpowered farms may be modified by admins if they are causing lag, crashing, etc.

Language - English 
- The language of public chat on the server is English. This is not to be mean or unfair to any non-English speaker, this is simply so we can all understand each other. 
- If you wish to speak another language, please whisper to the player you would like to speak to. 
- If your English sucks, that's alright. Give it your best try and chances are we will understand you anyway. ;)
