If you feel like any of these rules are unclear contact a Senior Admin+ for clarification.

These rules will define the redstone machines on the server as they have become more and more promient. These come to clarify any sort of future misunderstandings or questions you may have going forward.

00. Definitions.

  1. An automatic farm - is a farm that requires no form of effort or intervention ot get the final outcome of the farm. The eoffrt to build the farm does not count.
  2. A semi-automatic farm - is a farm that requires pulling a lever, pushing a button, or having to collect the produce manually. You must not be afk'ing at a spot waiting for the items to come to you as this is equivalent to an afk-farm and crosses the blurry line between auto and semi-auto.

01. The rule: No auto-farms, you must put effort into making money! This includes afk-farms.

  1. Redstone machines should not be running all the time as redstone increases load on the server and may cause lag if many redstone machines are running across the server.
  2. Bypassing the rules with techinicalities, e.g. turning a lever on and letting the farm run is not okay. The fact it has an on and off switch does not exclude other facts like the automatic part of the collection and harvest.
  3. Large farms and industrial size farms will be subject to evaluation from a senior staff members, you cannot build them and judge them yourself, you need approval.
  4. Since there's a vast sea of farm models we have concluded that some will not be allowed: Automatic sheep farm, you must add a swtich to shear the sheep yourself. Villager crop farms, although a game mechanic, are not allowed.
  5. Some traditional farms will be allowed with conditions: Flower farms with a button, 2 block high flowe farms as long as it;s not running infinitely, cacti farms will be allowed as long as they respect the above rules & the player is doing another activity in the area other than just standing still at the collection point.
  6. Some criterias of judgement that are not ultimate but will give you a rough idea if your farm is allowed or not:
    1. Are you actively interacting with the system other than standing still e.g. pushing buttons?
    2. Is there an on/off switch?
    3. Are you collecting it yourself?
     If you answer at least one no then you must ask for a staff members evaluation.
  7. If you have any doubts, ask a staff member. We do not punish you for making the farm, we punish you for using an illegal farm and hiding it from staff.
  8. Senior Admins reserve the final say in exceptional cases, pushing auto farming will elad to the punishment and removal of the machine.

 

We hope you understand the importance of making such rules for farming as minecraft's ever-expanding universe and technicality leads to some game-breaking and economy-breaking designs that simply do not have a place within our community. It is meant to keep some sort of balance for players to have a chance of catching up.

We love that players look to support and donate to the server, but with a few extra perks comes a few more responsibilities as well:

01. Do not share your perks. This includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Sharing kit items.
  2. Selling kit items.
  3. Building for others with kit items
  4. Repairing tools/armour/weapons for others with kit items.

02. Do not store kit items.

03. Use good judgement:

  1. Using disguide, /fly, /heal, /feed while PvPing a player will not be tolerated
  2. Do not use the 'Invisible' tag in disguises

Its worth noting 'other' players includes all players, even other donors.

We'd also like to add other ways you can continue to help support and promote our server:

04. Treat all players with respect, regardless of their rank.

05. Help answer basic questions, especially if staff are bust or not around.

  1. Demonstrate a knowledge to follow the same rules to keep gameplay as fair as possible
  2. Our new player look up to higher ranks, we appreciate you being a good role model for them!

It can be a bit confusing having a forum and Discord to keep in contact with the community, so here we will outline the difference, as well as some basic forum etiquette.

When to use which platform:

01. Forums is more of an offical way to communicate (consider forums like an email, and discord like texting)

  1. Any sort of reporting rules breaking, bugs, or related concerns should go on forums. We discourage from doing this on Discord because it will get lost in the chat.
  2. Forums should also be used for suggestions, such as modifications you think we should approve, or other feature you think we should add to the game.

02. Discord is more immediate and will get our attention faster.

  1. If a player is wreaking havoc or spamming in game, and staff aren't around, then the best way to notify us is on Discord.
  2. If the server goes down unexpectedly, and no staff were on at the time, then please ping us so we can see what happend. Keep in mind we do have regularly scheduled restarts.
  3. Please ping Moderators or Admins first, and they will refer the issue to Senior Staff if there is a need to.

Forum etiquette:

03. Keep it classy.

  1. Do your best to use proper grammar and spelling. It's difficult to help players if we cannot communicate with each other.
  2. Refrain from all caps, or other obnoxious text.
  3. No personal arguments or disputes.
  4. Stay on topic - if you want to talk about something else, make a new post or move it to Discord when appropriate.

04. No spamming - most issues we see on forums fall under this general umbrella.

  1. No repeatedly replying to your post to 'bump' it.
  2. Do not keep making post about the same issue.

05. English only on the forums.

 

To make things easier for everyone involved here is a quick rundown of what is expected of our moderators;

01. Responsible first and foremost for the quality of gameplay for the players.

02. Setting a good example by being helpful, courteous and fair.

  1. Vountarily helps players by answering basic questions, referring them to guides and other partss of the website when necessary.

03. Being an active player.

  1. Both on the server and discord
  2. Always communicate with the community in a positive way.

04. Displays maturity regardless of their age.

  1. There is no age bias, we do not care if you are 12, 20 or 50, a moderator is expected to act like an adult.
  2. Maturity also means refraining from gossuping about the server or other players. If a moderator has a complaint about our server or another player, please use the proper webpage to report or reach out to an Admin+ so we can assess the problem properly.

Our staff team is a reflection of our server, we hope to appeal professional but approachable. Moderating the server is just one small aspect of our job, our main goal is to promote the quality of the server for our players.

05. Other ways in which Staff might help us improve our server:

  1. Working with us to add new game features to the server (In a similar way in which Crates; Origin and various minigames in the past).
  2. Working with the staff team to create special venues or maps for events and minigames.
  3. Helping write informational website posts.
  4. Hosting (or assisting in hosting) events.
  5. Brings a positive and 'willingness to help' attitude to the server.

The least important part of the job is policing the server. What is meant by this is trying to find people cheating, etc. Staff are told when investigating something, they are told to keep in mind that everyone is innocent unitl proven guilty. Not the other way around. Iterrogating players will not be tolerated. Abusing any staff powers to harass other player will lead to the rank being revoked.
