If you have any questions, please ask before doing! NOTE: Just because it's a prohibition, doesn't mean it warrants an instant ban or mute. As a staff team, we will try our best to consider and understand situations on a case-by-case basis, and will usually resort to a verbal, unlogged warning if it is enough to solve the situation. However, punishments will be issued non-hesitantly to people who clearly cross a line.
Miscommunications or misunderstandings are not always scamming
Selling fake items (i.e. with fake lores) without telling the buyers that it’s fake
Trading in-game items with real-life assets or services (i.e. PayPal, crypto, gift cards, etc.)
Setting a home in or around another player’s base or claim without their consent
Refusing to leave someone’s claim/build and the area around it
Evading claim bans
Player warp bans are not regulated by staff. Players can ban other players from their player warp for any reason and even no reason at all.
Making cobblestone monsters/lava casts unless it is used to build something
Claiming land or building a significant structure that is nearer than 161 blocks from another claim or significant structure, unless you acknowledge the risk that the person who owns the build/claim near you can force you to remove/move your build/claim.
Claims made by players who have been offline for more than 90 days can be removed if certain conditions are met

Advertising in-game shops, services, auctions, or player warps outside of the /tr or trade channel aside from when such information is requested. Renaming tools or items to player warp names and frequently showing the item in global counts as advertising.

Swearing is allowed on the server, as long as it is only used as an expression, it is not used excessively, and it is not directed towards other players.
