Spoiler: MCGamer Ban Tables https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/171Ns2a1SUmGLTxooXlL5LMcLIKDy__AEBX_ijqyLCO8/edit#gid=0 General Rules: 1. Respect all staff members and their decisions: We expect members to listen and respect staff members. Staff can be noticed by their bright red names, Moderators; dark red names, Sr. Moderators; bolder dark red names, Administrators; or rainbow names,Developers. You can trust us by making decisions on how to handle anything as we are doing it to better our community. Sometimes, you might not agree completely with us, but you need to understand and trust our judgement in situations. There is zero tolerance for talking back or disobeying staff. If you disagree with a staff member and truly think they are incorrect, email to a higher ranking. If you see any abuse done by the Administrators, contact ChadTheDJ directly and I will handle it. If you see any abuse done by the Moderators, contact Senior Moderators or Administrative Staff. They will handle it directly. 2. Do not disrespect or harass other members: We want people in our community to feel safe and respected. Example: [User], you suck at minecraft. [User] is a hacking noob. If someone is telling you to stop harassing them or is making it obvious that they are feeling abused, do not continue what you are saying or doing. Harassment is taken very seriously. If you are caught harassing others, you may risk being permanently removed from our community. Spreading rumors about others is not allowed. Stalking a player around into servers and constantly targeting them is considered harassment Do not antagonize other members or staff members in order to evoke any specific reaction to the point of including up to abusive reactions. 3. Do not use derogatory or profane language: There are many members in our community of various ages and words that are not appropriate should not be spoken or seen. Example: Do not say anything you wouldn’t say to your loving grand parents Keep the chat PG. Inappropriate names will be banned. Do not say/post anything inappropriate. The use of light swear words such as crap and damn are allowed. Bypassing the profanity filter will result in an immediate mute. If you are unsure of whether a word is considered inappropriate, ask a staff member. 4. Do not discriminate other members: Our member base consist of people of many different races, genders, country, religion, sexual orientation, etc. We do not want our members to feel left out due to them being different. Example: We hate [certain group] Kill all [certain group] Phrases and words that may offend people of a certain group is not allowed. This includes things like “This is gay.” If you are unsure if something is classified as discrimination, ask a staff member. 5. Do not spam:Spamming is an unnecessary way of gaining attention, and spamming is obnoxious. It prioritizes one person’s message over another. Example: Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Sppppppppppppaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmm If the message is repeated more than three times over a short amount of time, it is considered spamming. If the message is the only thing said and is repeated constantly, it is considered spam. If the message takes up two lines of text and had no point to it, it is considered spam. 6. Do not use excessive caps: Excessive caps prioritize a person’s message over others, similar to spam, and is often viewed as screaming or shouting. Example: THIS IS CONSIDERED BREAKING THE RULES CAPS THIS is STILL BREAKING THE RULES If the message is in all caps, then it is not allowed. If the message is four letters or more and is in all caps, then it is not allowed. If the message is mostly caps, it is not allowed. 7. Do not advertise: Advertising other communities or events in order to profit is prohibited. Example: Check out my stream at www.streamingwebsite.com/advertising I’m streaming [Server that is not MCSG] Go subscribe to me on youtube: www.youtube.com/MCChadtheDJ Cool videos of [Server that is not MCSG] • Advertising MCGamer videos are allowed if asked for. For streams, you may say it once per game, or once every half hour in the hub. Look at this cool picture of me on [Server that is not MCSG] MCSG sucks. [Server name] is way better and you should check it out. Do not post links unless asked. Posting links of live streams and youtube channels is allowed only if the stream or youtube channel contains MCSG. Links and addresses of other communities are not allowed. If you are unsure whether something is classified as advertising, ask a staff member before hand. Saying things like, “Leave MCSG for [server name]” or anything similar to it is considered advertising. Having a forum signature that violate these rules will not be allowed. 8. Do not start argue/flame wars: We want to keep the community peaceful; a place where people are free to have opinions and discuss things. Arguments ruin discussions and are unnecessary. Example: Your opinion is stupid. This idea is just stupid. User 1: Your ideas are bad and you’re a hacker! User 2: No you’re a hacker! Staff: Stop arguing. Users: No! The difference between an argument and a discussion is that a discussion has valid points provided by each sides debating. An argument is a pointless disagreement where sides repeatedly claim the opposing side is wrong without any explanation or validation. Flaming/trolling threads are not allowed as they may cause arguments. If a staff member says to stop arguing, you must stop. Controversial topics that may incite harassment, flame wars, or hate crimes are not allowed. This includes discussion of religion and politics. 9. Do not exploit bugs or glitches: We want to the servers to be the best that it can be and if a bug or glitch is spotted, report it to staff privately ASAP. Example: Block glitching Breaking boats as a spectator Leaving the map Using a bug or glitch to your advantage is not allowed. Refusing to tell staff about a bug or glitch is not allowed. Spreading the information about a bug or glitch to non-staff is not allowed. No block glitching, or using the block lag glitch to get out of the lobby, or break a block to climb/reach to a place you cannot get to by jumping/normal means. Breaking boats as a spectator is considered exploiting a bug Escaping maps/lobbies due to an error in a map is considered exploitation and will result in immediate kicking from the server. 10. Do not use alternate accounts to benefit you: Using alternate accounts to benefit yourself is unfair to those who do not have alternate accounts. Using an alternate account to avoid or get around a ban is not allowed and the alternate account will be banned as well as the IP address being banned. If you were banned for an inappropriate name, you are allowed to use an alternate account. Using an alternate forum account to like your posts so you can get active member is not allowed. 11. Do not mislead people: Do not mislead people into learning false information that will trick them into doing something idiotic. Example: Do alt f4 for diamonds Do /kill at start to see your kill stats Non-staff: I’m a moderator! do /v for free sword at start Messages about alt+f4 or ctrl+w are not allowed. Lying to people so you can get a map voted is not allowed. Telling people to do /kill is not allowed. Impersonating staff or famous people will not be tolerated. 12. Do not interfere with issues between the staff and a specific player or group: Interfering with these issues could cause or intensify drama. This includes ban disputes, bans, arguments and other private issues. 13. Do not publicly post or show confidential or private information of another user without the authorization of said user or staff: We want everyone to feel safe on our servers and if private information is being leaked, it could make users feel uncomfortable and threatened. If the information includes a person’s real name, age, location, etc that is not already posted by them 14. Do not start drama: This is a community about gaming where the purpose is to have fun. Causing drama causes stress for others, makes the community look and feel bad and will not be tolerated. If you are unsure if what you plan to post or have posted will or can cause drama, message a staff member privately for approval. 15. These rules are subject to change at any time 16. By playing on our servers, you agree to follow these rules and understand that if you break these rules, you will face consequences that could lead up to permanent removal from the community. 17. You may not sell items for monitary value (such as Minecraft Accounts, In Game Ranks, or in game items) for any sort of personal gain on any of our platforms. 18. You may not control more than one account on a server at one time unless directly given permission by a member of the Sr. Staff. 19. Do not release any other members personal information. 20. Ensure that your username is appropriate and acceptable for this community: Usernames that are deemed inappropriate or trolling are liable to be punished with a permanent ban. Impersonation, or having a username similar to someone else's, is generally acceptable unless the impersonator demonstrates malicious intent with either of the following: Impersonating with the intent of personal gain. Impersonating with the intent of ruining the reputation of the person they are impersonating. Users who are permanently banned for a username offense may be unbanned on their first offense if they change their name to something appropriate and then fill out a ban dispute. 21.You may not exploit any loopholes in these rules. 22. Most importantly, have fun. In-game Rules: 1. All General Rules apply: The General Rules stated above apply while playing on our servers. 2. No Hacked or Modded clients are allowed EVER: Mods that give unfair advantages are not allowed. Any suspicion of using a client can earn a temp ban or a permanent ban depending on the situation. Even discussing hacked clients on our servers is worthy of a tempban. Anything outside of a vanilla client that provides an unfair advantage (x-ray, minimap, radars, force fields, speedhacking, better sprint mod, ect.) is considered a modded or hacked client! A detailed list of the mods we do not allow will be provided. If you use mods to increase your FPS or textures like the watermod, it's OK! We just don't like the ones where you modify your character's performance. If you are caught or the administration has suspicion of you using hacks, your ranking and leaderboard scores are subject to be reset to the defaults. Admitting to using a modded/hacked client, even jokingly, will result in a mute. If you are unsure if a certain mod is allowed or not, as a staff member before using it. Disallowed Mods list: Macros Mod [Staff Exempt for Moderation use only] Better Sprinting Mod Mini-Map Damage Indicators Chestfinder Player ESP Any Hacked Client of ANY kind Any modification that provides an enhancement, improvement or advantage as to the abilities of the player. (Double jumping, spider, etc) See our ban tables at the top of this thread for further details. Smart Moving Mod This list will update over time. Any mods not posted on the mods list should be verified with staff before using. 3. Do not use inappropriate skins: Skins that violate any rule previously stated are not allowed. This includes inappropriate capes and banners. Example: Hitler skins Nude skins Racist skins Skins containing swastikas Capes with male genitalia If you have been warned/temporarily banned for using an inappropriate skin, and you continue to use it, you will risk being permanently banned. If you are unsure of whether a skin is allowed, ask a member of staff. If a player is stuck in a trap that does not kill them they may be teleported out by an Administrator.4. Do not boost for wins: Any series of wins acquired in an unfair manner are not allowed Forum Rules: 1. All General Rules apply: All General Rules previously stated apply when you are on our forums. 2. Do not multipost: Posting more than one post in a row is not allowed since it makes it take longer for others to view posts below yours. If there is an update to a topic, and no one has yet mentioned it, you are allowed to post more than once in a row. We have an edit button for a reason, please use that instead of multiposting. We understand that accidents happen sometimes, so don’t worry about being in trouble for multiposting the same message due to phone/internet issues. 3. Do not replicate or repost a thread: It is very irritating having to respond with the same response to multiple threads about the same thing. Please use the search function to see if a topic have already been posted before you post a thread. Previous threads might have already answered/responded to the thread you plan on posting. If a previous thread has been locked or deleted for a reason, do not bring it back up. If you are curious about why a thread was locked or deleted, ask a moderator. 4. Do not grave-dig/necropost: Posting on old threads that serve no purpose is unnecessary and gives people unneeded alerts. If a thread has gone one month without any new posts, it is considered old and posting on it will be considered necroposting. If the thread is still relevant and important, necroposting on it is allowed. If the thread has a new update, necroposting on it is allowed. 5. Do not post pointless threads/posts: Threads/posts that serve no purpose other than spamming and starting arguments are not allowed. An example is posts that simply say "First!", "Second!", etc. These posts will be deleted on sight, as they are pointless and do not add anything to the discussion. 6. Do not frequently bump threads: You may only bump a thread once every 24 hours. If a staff member feels that the bump is pointless, it will be removed. 7. Post in the correct section: To make things easier to navigate around, we need members to post in the correct section. Post threads about map discussion help in the "Map Downloads and Discussions" section Post threads asking for help in the "General Support" section Post threads suggesting a feature in the "Feature Suggestions" section 8. Do not repost a post or thread that has been deleted: Threads are deleted for a reason. If you are unsure of the reason, message a staff member privately. If you cannot find your thread and are unsure if it was deleted or not, message a staff member for assistance. 9. Keep private conversations and issues kept private: If it doesn’t involve majority of the community, than it shouldn’t be posted in public for everyone to see. 10. Screamers, offensive, pornographic, and sexual material is not allowed: Whether it's swastikas or lingerie models, such content is not allowed on our forums. If a moderator does not feel like the content is PG-13 and would not be appropriate for children to see, then it will be removed. All incidents are taken on a case-by-case basis, but the decision made is final. 11. Maliciously boosting for likes is against the rules: This includes: • Asking your friends to give you a ton of likes. • Creating alternate accounts to give you likes. Teamspeak Rules: 1. All General Rules apply: All General rules previously stated above, apply when you are on our teamspeak. 2. Do not continuously switch channels: Continuously switching channels, spams the main teamspeak tab and makes it tougher for people to see teamspeak activity. Example: <15:19:21> "Rulebreaker" switched from channel "In-Game 1 (US)" to "In-Game 2 (US)" <15:19:21> "Rulebreaker" switched from channel "In-Game 2 (US)" to "In-Game 1 (US)" <15:19:21> "Rulebreaker" switched from channel "In-Game 1 (US)" to "In-Game 2 (US)" <15:19:21> "Rulebreaker" switched from channel "In-Game 2 (US)" to "In-Game 1 (US)" <15:19:21> "Rulebreaker" switched from channel "In-Game 1 (US)" to "In-Game 2 (US)"[/spoiler] 3. No non members of staff can be in a staff channel with out a member of staff and they will be moved out if there is no member of staff present. 4. Mass demonstrations that attempt to sway community policy through public displays is not allowed. Mass messages, poke campaigns, hashtag phrases (e.g. #ChadForBanned) and the like will be considered a kickable offense. 5.Giving away the disguise of a member of staff could result in a ban. 6.You may not exploit any loopholes in these rules. 7.
