Main Rules
« Opened on May 02, 2012, 11:26:42 PM »
Following the rules will make your experience on Famcraft more enjoyable!

1 - Griefing (defacing) another player's property or stealing another player's items is not allowed. We use extensive logging plugins on Famcraft. We record every action you perform, every item you touch, and every word you type ingame via chat, private message (visible on console), clan chat, and sign text. There is no statute of limitations on punishing players for griefing. You will never get away with it so don't bother trying. Instead, enjoy Famcraft knowing these plugins will also protect YOUR property from griefers!

2 - Deliberate misspelling of words to evade the swear filter is not allowed. If you type words that are caught by the filter, please use the warnings you receive as a lesson of what kind of words are not allowed on Famcraft.

3 - Abusive, racist, sexual, drug-related, belligerent, political, anti-political, religious, anti-religious, and inflammatory chat is not allowed in posts, text, skin, shapes of structures built ingame, text in signs, private messages, or nick/screen names. Remember, we log everything you type everywhere, always, and we keep logs forever. Famcraft is all about Minecraft, not your beliefs or lack of beliefs. These restrictions include a ban on any speech or actions that are commonly considered inappropriate when directed toward children. Among other reasons but mostly because we allow people of all ages to play on Famcraft, we have zero tolerance for any attempted exploitation of children.
 We also do not allow discussion of mature rated games, movies or television shows.

4 - Trading, linking to, or discussing illegal material (games, software, movies, etc.) is not allowed.

5 - Do not discuss other servers while using any of Famcraft's services. That includes talking bad about other servers, too. While we appreciate players wanting to share their experiences from other servers, many new players join the server only to advertise their own server. Devious players we punish for breaking other rules often try to advertise other servers to draw people away from Famcraft out of spite. Due to these types of examples, we don't allow discussion of any other server while in-game, on mumble, or in our forums.

6 - Using any client modifications to cheat on Famcraft Survival is not allowed. Cheating includes such activities as flying when not allowed, placing multiple blocks with one action, speed walking, and seeing through blocks.  We also do not allow the exploitation of server software or Minecraft "glitches". We also do not allow AFK pools, devices, machines or any other method of artificially preventing the afk kick.

Acceptable client mods include most minimaps, inventory tweak/sorting, and others that do not give you an advantage over other players. If you are unsure about whether a mod is safe to use here, just ask a staff member about it and they'll be glad to help.

7 - Harassment of other players is not allowed.

8 - Persistent hassling of Staff members for anything is not allowed. This includes world-editing, protections, or items, among other things.

9 - Spamming is not allowed. This includes using caps or excessive amounts of a letter or character. We will not argue this topic. ex: 111111111 - is considered spamming. More examples of spam: https://famcraft.com/index.php/topic,1841.0.html

10 - Do not ask to become a staff member. We choose staff members very carefully, and positions are not open for application.

11 - English is the official language on Famcraft. We have players from all around the world and English is the most common language among them, so please use only English in the public chat and forum posts. You MAY use other languages in clan chat and personal messages. These messages are still monitored to ensure they abide by Famcraft's rules.

12 - Player vs. player combat is not allowed unless all participants agree to fight and agree on the terms of the combat. By default, your ability to hurt another player is disabled. This can be toggled with the /pvp  command. However, the other player must also issue the /pvp command. Some things you will need to make an agreement about include whether you will keep or return items a dead player drops. Issuing the agreement in chat or written on signs is sufficient. These rules exist to stop players from bullying each other.

Additional notes:

You are responsible for your account. If you use a shared account and your account sharer decides to grief or break rules, we will punish you and the account. In addition, we only allow one account per person.

Any mob/XP grinder owner wishing to prevent intruders from using their grinder should post a sign inside the player area indicating which players and clans are allowed or not allowed inside.

These rules can change at any time. Please make sure you check them frequently to keep up to date.

If a player breaks a rule staff has authorization to warn/mute/kick/tempban/permaban without warning the player first. If you want to plead your case and attempt to overturn any punishment against you, please do so by going to the appropriate part of the forums.
