~ RainyRealms' Rules of the Road ~
We understand everyone wants to come onto the server to play and have fun, and we want to ensure a cohesive gameplay for everyone online. In order to help facilitate this, we have a few guidelines we ask all players to follow. If you are unsure if something is deemed "ok" to do/say, then please contact a moderator before doing/saying so. If you have reached this page, and are wanting to appeal a punishment, you may do so here.
Protect your personal information. This includes, but is not limited to: phone number, address, email, and social media accounts. Players should avoid having conversations that include personal details about themselves, or someone else. If you are seen doing so, a Staff Member may ask you to stop.
If you feel someone has violated this, please create a report in the "Reports" section of the forums, and a Staff Member will investigate.
Advertising is not allowed.
Advertising other Minecraft servers is strictly banned. You also may not advertise websites, YouTube channels, Twitch streams, or anything else if it is not related to RainyRealms
Respect the Staff
Allow the Staff to do their job.
You may not attempt to do a moderator’s job in threatening to punish players for breaking the rules. If a rule has been broken, please report it immediately on the forums, the staff members will handle it from there. We appreciate you being helpful, but by no means should you impersonate a staff member.
You should comply with anything a staff member asks you to do.
You are not allowed to argue against any decision made by a staff member regarding enforcement of the rules on any of our platforms. If you have a problem with a moderator, you may contact the administration team with evidence and they will investigate.
No potentially offensive conversations.
Conversations to do with sensitive topics (such as religion or politics) can offend someone. We want everyone to enjoy a comfortable environment, free from strife. Please avoid talking about topics that could potentially hurt or offend others.
Respect all players and Staff.
Treat others with respect. Trolling, (the act of purposeful manipulation), is also not allowed. This includes intentionally trying to hurt someone, or twisting facts to get players to believe something which is untrue.
Attempting to threaten or intimidate users (DoXing, physical violence, death wishes) on any of our platforms is taken very seriously, and will result in immediate removal from the server, forums, or discord. We must take all threats very seriously; attempting to threaten players with personally identifiable information, or threatening to harm them in any way will not be tolerated, under any circumstances.
Offensive content is not allowed.
While some minor amount of swearing is allowed, severe or frequent vulgarity, especially when directed at others, is not. Offensive pet names, item names, skins, Minecraft structures, and usernames are not allowed, and you are required to change or remove any if asked by a staff member.
Keep chat family-friendly.
Chat should be family-friendly. Avoid discussing topics that pertain to inappropriate content. Vulgarity or perpetually inappropriate speech will not be tolerated.
Spamming is not allowed.
Spamming is filling the chat with multiple unneeded characters or messages. This will not be tolerated, as it is an annoyance to all online players.
Hacking is not tolerated.
Hacking in any form is not allowed. Anything that would give you an unfair advantage over other players is considered cheating. This can include client mods, abusing server bugs, or using multiple accounts to do so.
If you have questions about this rule, contact a staff member before using anything that hasn't been confirmed to be allowed. If you continue to use a mod or client without staff approval, you risk being banned.
Griefing is not allowed.
Griefing is considered destroying or changing another player’s property or buildings without their consent, in any way. Griefing a player will result in your immediate removal from the server.
Do not scam other players, or attempt to.
Scamming is taking money, items, work, or anything else of value from another player, dishonestly. This includes teleporting people into PvP areas without their consent and killing them for their items.
Player killing is not allowed.
Player killing, is killing someone, when you are both not in PvP mode. This can be "spawn-killing" someone, placing lava on them, using a spawn-egg on/near them(for example: spawning hostile mobs, such as creepers or skeletons by a player, to get the mob to kill the player), creating a death-warp (a warp that leads players to their death), or tpa-ing them to their death or to a place where they could be hurt. This is not allowed.
No redstone farms/clocks.
What is a redstone farm?
A redstone farm is a series of redstone, repeaters, comparators, etc that are used to automate the "farming" and harvesting of items(such as: wheat, carrots, potatoes, melons, etc., etc). We understand players enjoy making elaborate farms, but want to ensure a smooth gameplay for everyone playing.
What is a redstone clock?
A redstone clock is a series of redstone, repeaters, comparators, etc that are used to automate the function of different aspects within the game. This can be a series of noteblocks set to play a song, or just a piece of art to spice up your base. Redstone clocks put a lot of strain on the server as a whole, and make it every difficult for players to play, in a fluid, efficient, and smooth manner.
AFK Farming & Alternate Accounts
Due to the strain endured by the server when people AFK(Away From Keyboard) farm, we ask that you refrain from doing so. This is a survival server, and is meant to be just that. If you want to harvest, fish, cook, build, anything, we ask that you do so, personally-not set macro and walk away.
Alternate accounts are not allowed, due to the fact that they can be exploited to get more rewards, farm faster, and be an unfair advantage. We do, however, understand that players have multiple accounts and enjoy using them. If you wish to do so, you may only use one at a time. Furthermore, using an alternate account to trick someone into someone, or to falsify your identity is not allowed. Be ethical and fair; don't hide who you are, on an alternate account-staff will know.
Charging back is the act of disputing a charge for a donation you sent to the server, or otherwise forcibly taking the money back you donated to the server. The administration works very hard to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone, and we want to further the development anyway we can. If a player chooses to chargeback the donations they have made to the server, they will be immediately removed from the server.
We also have other expectations for players.
Please do not build near other player's claims without asking them for permission first,
Please gather items for major projects at least 10,000 blocks from spawn,
Lastly, we ask that players use common sense. If you know something to be wrong, or you DON'T know, then it's best to refrain from doing or saying whatever it is. We want everyone to play and have fun, in a safe, comfortable environment. If you have any questions, at any time, for anything pertaining to the server, please do not hesitate to contact a staff member, and ask them-they will be happy to help you and answer any question you have, rules-related or otherwise.
*These rules may be changed at any time, so check back regularly. If you are unsure if something is against the rules, then please ask.
