Mumble Rules

**NEVER Log into the Famcraft Mumble with ANY NAME intended to represent any other player, staff member, celebrity, entity, or anyone else at all, other than YOURSELF - We DO ban from the Mumble server, and from the survival server for breaking this rule**

1 - No trying to hijack conversations in Mumble.

  Degrading other players' conversations, or drastically changing the subject to intentionally steal focus from the original player's topic is not allowed. You are welcome to join in on the conversation, just don't try to run your own show. Remember, you are communicating with players who are still trying to actively play in game, too.
 Also, if a staff member is assisting another player in game, please do not demand that staff member focus their attention on you in mumble. While our players on mumble do matter very much to us, we must assist those players needing help in the game, first.
  Be wary of your behavior on Mumble, make sure you follow the rules. We pay attention. There is no statute of limitations on punishing players. Enjoy the Famcraft Mumble knowing these rules will help provide you with a safe and fun forum experience.

2 - No Deliberate mispronunciation of words or use of abbreviations to slip swearing or other inappropriate words into Mumble conversations. This includes making innuendo or attempting to alter the context of something someone else has said to make it seem inappropriate when it was not intended as such.

3 - Abusive, racist, sexual, drug-related, belligerent, political, anti-political, religious, anti-religious, and inflammatory chat is not allowed in conversation, links or nick/screen names or Mumble comments.  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 and post on Famcraft.com, we have zero tolerance for any attempted exploitation of children.

4 - Trading, linking to, or discussing illegal material (games, software, movies, etc.) is not allowed. This includes linking to sites, that link to other sites that include this sort of thing.

5 - Do not discuss other servers while using any of Famcraft's services, including Mumble. 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 - No discussion, even on Mumble, of any client modifications that could be used to cheat on Famcraft. Cheating includes such activities as flying when not allowed, placing multiple blocks with one action, speed walking, and seeing through blocks. Two specific client mods which are allowed (and recommended) are Rei's Minimap and Optifine.
   - Rei's Minimap: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/482147-
   - Optifine: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/249637-
   - We also recommend Magic Launcher for easily installing the above mods: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/939149-
   - You may use many other client mods but we can't make a complete list of them. Acceptable client mods include most minimaps, inventory tweak/sorting, and others that do not give you a competitive 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. This means name-calling, being  degrading, aggressive, making rude or otherwise unnecessary/inappropriate comments or being insulting or hurtful in any way is NOT allowed. This includes sending rude/spammy Mumble private messages.

8 - Persistent hassling of Staff members for anything is not allowed. This includes excessive/spammy Mumble private messages.

9 - Spamming on Mumble is not allowed in public chat OR by private message. This includes text spam, text spam intended to activate someone's text to speech, and audible spam such as loud background music, or intentionally speaking, squealing, screeching, shrieking, screaming, yelling, laughing, singing or making any other sound intended to disrupt conversation.

10 - Do not ask to become a staff member on Mumble. Speaking directly with us in voice chat does not make you any more likely to be asked to join the staff team, and is still breaking the rules. We also do not need players for Mumble staff. Server staff is also Mumble staff. We never ask players on Mumble  to help moderate the Mumble channel.

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 public conversation on Mumble. You may use other languages in private conversations on Mumble.

12 - Player vs. player friendly playful debate is allowed on the Mumble. (Example: Melons vs Pumpkins, or what is the best block in Minecraft, What type of pizza is best) It is okay to express your views and differing opinions on family friendly topics such as sports or  appropriately rated games, movies and music. In these conversations, please always remember to use a polite and friendly tone, and never be degrading of another players opinions or experiences.

Additional notes:

You are responsible for your own Mumble account. If your account breaks the rules, we will punish you and the account. NEVER Log into Mumble using ANY other persons name. You must always be recognizable as the in game name we know you by.

These rules can change at any time. Please make sure you check them frequently to keep up to date. Staff members are expected to have them memorized.

To prevent players circumventing punishments they have been given, we ask that players do not use multiple Mumble accounts on the Famcraft Mumble, unless necessary to connect from different devices. Even then, your name should make it apparent who you are. If you're found to be using multiple Mumble names at once, you'll be asked to pick your favorite and stick with it to avoid future confusion.

If a player breaks any Mumble rule, staff has authorization to ban them from Mumble and the server without warning the player first. If you want to plead your case and attempt to overturn any punishment against you, please do so by posting a plea at: 12http://u.famcraft.com/1y
