Server Rules

From Crimson Ingot

Punishment for rule violations depends on the severity of the violation. Most things will start with a kick or two - continued offenses always lead to a ban. Bullying, harassment, hate speech, and bigotry are often immediately bannable offenses. If your violations are of a severe enough nature, you may be IP-banned. This is determined on a case-by-case basis.

1) Hacks and Exploits:[edit | edit source]

  1. Use of Modded Minecraft Clients that provide an unfair PvP, Movement, Building, or Material Finding advantage is bannable.
  2. Exploitation of Minecraft's or of CI's mechanics in ways that harm the experience of other players, create an unfair playing atmosphere or violate the intended purpose of said mechanics is bannable.
  3. All exploits must be reported as discovered.
  4. Grinders and generators are banned. These are any contraptions that are not lore-friendly and give an unfair advantage in grinding to the player.

2) General Etiquette[edit | edit source]

  1. Use of slurs is cause for an immediate ban. Bigotry in any form is not tolerated. This includes but is not limited to racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia.
  2. Do not ask Staff for things like godmode, custom spells, elytra, etc. in game repeatedly. You will be kicked and banned if you intentionally annoy staff with foolish requests.
  3. Do not accuse another player of hacking, powergaming, metagaming, or breaking any rule at all whilst in-game. Report rule-breaking with a "Report" ticket on the discord
  4. Bullying or harassment in any form is not tolerated on CI. This will usually result in an instant ban. If your behaviour is questionable and you are warned, or if someone asks you to stop speaking to them / treating them in a certain way, it's usually best to respect that. Of course, common sense is necessary too. Roleplay is roleplay, and being a villain does not constitute bullying.
  5. Excessive grief is NEVER allowed. This includes the natural landscape - mining should be done in an RP-friendly way, and terraforming must be finished cleanly. Feel free to ask Staff for help! We are usually happy to do so. Theft, vandalism, and property destruction must have RP motivation behind them, and an Evidence Sign must be left whenever possible.

3) Roleplay Etiquette[edit | edit source]

  1. No Meta-Gaming, Power Gaming, or OOC behavior in Roleplay settings. When in-game, we are our characters! Let's be sure to play these characters well and fairly so everyone has a good time.
  2. Don't break another players RP. When you come across someone else role-playing, show respect and do not disrupt them.
  3. Everything that you do in game can be recognized as an in-character action.
  4. No descriptive erotic roleplay. It is fine to have romantic relations, but do not perform actions describing sexual acts in-game. (Romantic Relations must also remain Consensual and non pedophiliac)
  5. Don't get excessively crass whilst in-character, generally try to avoid making other players uncomfortable OOCly with your characters actions.
  6. Follow guidelines listed in the Guide to Ethical Villainy here when role-playing villainous characters.
  7. Follow guidelines listed here when performing PvP in Character

4) DBAD (Don't be a Dongle)[edit | edit source]

Generally speaking, if you are unsure if your actions will be against the above rules, think about it this way:

   Are you doing something to deliberately ruin the enjoyment of other players?

   Are you going to be seen as being a jerk OOCly for doing what you're doing?

If so, don't do it.

Being a jerk when it's completely in character is fine. Being a jerk out of character, in the community, is what we will take issue with.

Formally speaking, repeated behavior that diminishes the enjoyment of the server for players or staff will result in a ban.
