General Forum Rules: Respect and follow the instructions of all Administrators, Moderators, Trial-Moderators, Forum Moderators at all times. (As part of respecting staff: always read through the sticky posts in a section if you've not before.) Respect all users at all times. Examples of disrespect are listed in a spoiler below. Keep all discussion in threads related to topic. Do not spam or derail any threads. Any posts that don't have anything to do with the original post are considered off topic. All off topic posts, spam, flaming, etc. on a thread will be deleted by a moderator. Advertising (Exception: Any youtube, twitch, or other channels are acceptable so long as they do not advertise another minecraft server), referrals, and begging is not allowed. All links posted to external websites will be checked by a staff member. Any unlawful content posted will result in a warning, temporary ban, or permanent forum ban. Post any threads in the appropriate sections of the forums. If you're unsure where to post, feel free to ask a fellow user or a member of the staff team. A description of which posts are acceptable where is located inside of the spoiler below. Do not share personal information with anyone. This includes but is not limited to: IP addresses, Minecraft Account(s), Email accounts, and Skype profiles. DoXing is not allowed. No trolling and posting multiple replies in a row. If you wish to add more information in a post, use the edit button. Do not edit your own post if it's been edited by a staff member. Do not post illegal and/ or derogatory material. This includes overly sexual content (pornography especially), malware, torrents, etc. Do not excessively curse. (Staff will define what counts as excessive. General rule of thumb is don't curse at all.) Ratings farming and abuse of the ratings system will result in a removal of all ratings given to the afflicted users, removal of all accumulated ratings, removal of permissions to give ratings, and/or serve a possible temporary/ permanent forum ban. A detailed description of abusing the rating system is available here. Do not promote your mod application in any area of the forums (signature and your profile excluded). Do not abuse the report a post function. Staff monitor all reported posts and abuse of this function can earn an infraction. Report abuse includes reporting posts that don't break the rules or reporting the same post multiple times. Do not post repeatedly with the sole intention of getting your message count up. This is known as post-farming. Do not post on a thread that hasn't been posted on in more than thirty days unless you have something that contributes to the discussion. This is known as grave-digging. If you are caught collaboratively breaking the rules with other players or encouraging them to do so, you will be punished as well. Use common sense on the forums. If something seems like it's wrong or should be against the rules, don't do it. If you have questions about something you'd like to post or do, message a staff member about it. Do not share your forums account with another player that is currently restricted, muted, or ratings-restricted on the forums. Any forum offenses made by another person using your account will result in an infraction on both your account and on the person's account that's using it. Your forums account is your responsibility. Do not create alternate forum accounts. If your account has been restricted from the forums, you are permitted to make one appeal account that will be only allowed to post in the appeals section of the forums. Posting or rating anywhere else on the forums will result in the account's deletion. For a breakdown of our forum infraction system, read the thread here.
