** Official In-Game Rules ** Last Update: Feb 2, 2018 We here at DragonPrison have some rules that you must follow so that the order of everything stays in balance. Be sure to look them over before you continue! These rules apply to all users on the server, regardless of any item or rank purchased from our store. Failure and or refusal to comply with and follow these rules can and might result in being permanently banned. Therefore, we highly recommend that each user reads and follows these rules to avoid receiving punishments. Also, bear in mind that these rules are subject to change at any point in time with or without warning! So be sure to check up on them every once in a while. >> Chat Excessive Swearing We allow swearing on the server. However, you are not allowed to use excessive vulgar language towards a player or send messages that are mostly comprised of swear words. Although we allow you to use some language at each other or to describe things and situations, abuse of this leniency will result in a warning for either bullying/harassment or excessive swearing. NOTE: Light pvp banter is allowed as well (Ex. “C'mon pussy fight me”, “You killed me you bitch”) but anything that is outside of pvp and is directed to a player will result in a direct mute if it is seen as excessive. Spam // Chat Flooding // Spam Promotion Putting repetitive messages or characters in a short amount of time. Telling players to flood the chat and using hashtags is considered spam promotion and will result in a temporary mute. If you are trying to advertise a shop/item/auction, you must keep your ads 1 minute apart. No exceptions. NOTE: If you use multiple accounts to bypass the 1-minute shop advertisements, all accounts involved will be punished. Toxicity // Non-Constructive Criticism // Taunts All toxicity, insults and nonconstructive criticism towards new players will either result in a warning, mute or ban depending on the severity of the situation. Harassment // Excessive Player Disrespect Calling someone a “bitch” or telling them to “fuck off” is not a mutable offense. However, excessive profanity/insults/unwanted actions to harass a player or groups of players will not be tolerated. Harassment will first result in a warning then a temporary mute. NOTE: If it becomes excessive you may be banned from the server by an admin if they feel you are harmful to the server. Malicious Links Any links that redirect you to a malicious website which grabs your personal information are not allowed. Depending on what the end goal of the link is, you will generally receive a temporary mute if you post a malicious link. Continuation of this offense will result in a permanent mute and possibly a ban. Sensitive Subjects Arguments or discussions over sensitive subjects need to be kept in private messages. Examples of sensitive subjects include but are not limited to: Religion Race Ethnicity Politics Disasters (in an offensive way) If you are discussing a sensitive subject that is not in a private message you will receive a warning. If you continue to discuss the topic in a public chat, you will be temporarily muted. Server Flame Being toxic towards the server and its staff is not acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to; calling staff shit/bad, calling the server bad, insulting the team or the server etc. Excessive server flame will result in a permanent mute. Inappropriate Content // Nicknames // Gang Names // Inappropriately Named Items Discussing inappropriate topics such as pornography and racism is prohibited. Posting links to inappropriate websites/pictures/etc is also prohibited. If you have an item with an inappropriate name, then you will be given an item rename tag and be told to change it at that same moment. Failure to do so will result in the item being taken away. Books with inappropriate content in them also count. Mute Evasion Evading a mute with an alt will result in a mute for the alternate account. If you use your alt to evade a mute, your main account will be banned for the remainder of the time and your alt will be muted for the remainder of the time. If you break a rule while muted on your main in something such as /msg, you will be banned for the remainder of the mute. >> Gameplay Alternate Accounts We understand that some of you may have family members that play with you and that's totally fine. However, we don't want players abusing the system. Everyone is allowed to have two alternate accounts. Meaning that you can have three accounts registered to your IP. You can not have more than three and if you are caught with more than three, all extra alternate accounts will be permanently banned. Another thing to keep in mind is If you are caught using your alts to receive extra in-game items, your alts will be permanently banned and your main account will receive a temporary ban. NOTE: To those who have family members who play with you, make sure that anyone playing on the server understands the rules as well. Because if they abuse the system, they could potentially ruin the experience for everyone else playing in your household. Exploiting // Abusing Bugs and exploits should always be reported as soon as they are found. If you are caught abusing an exploit, you will be temporarily banned for not telling a staff member about it. If you are testing for a bug, please make a recording and send it to a staff member. Alternatively, if a staff member is online, you can request to show them the bug. Plus, if you report a bug, there is a good chance that you will be rewarded. Unfair Modifications // Hack Clients Any form of modification that gives the player an unfair advantage over other players is not allowed. Modifications that don't have any impact on gameplay are allowed. Examples include but are not limited to: Shaders Optifine 5Zig Status Effect Replay Mod Inappropriate Builds Any form of builds that seem inappropriate to the server is not allowed. Inappropriate builds fall under common sense. Should you have an inappropriate build on your plot, you will be asked to remove it. If you don't comply, your plot will be cleared! Plot Trapping // Plot Griefing Plot traps are allowed on the server. So if you die on someone else's plot and you lose your items, you're out of luck. Staff members will not reimburse you for lost items. Also, plot griefing is allowed. So make sure that whoever you add to your plot is trustworthy! Server Griefing Griefing the server is not allowed. This generally won't be an issue, but anything can happen and if you are caught destroying server builds, then you will be permanently banned. Ban Evasion We do not tolerate ban evasion. Evading a ban with an alt will result in a permanent IP ban and will eliminate any chance at appeal. The only way you will be able to get unbanned is to purchase an unban token. >> Common Sense Last but not least, use your best judgment. Blatant malice is not excusable, even if it's not covered by a rule. NOTE: Staff members can permanently ban at their discretion. If you are considered to be a nuisance to the server, staff, or its players. Staff members are required to keep proof of your punishments for seven days (This excludes warnings and mutes less than a day). Any appeals or complaints after that will not be reviewed and they will be denied. All decisions made by the staff are final. If you feel a member of our team is abusing please report them using the correct forum section or contact another staff member, preferably an admin.
