MineGlobe | Official Rules

Welcome to the official MineGlobe Rules page. On this page, you will learn about what you are allowed to do on MineGlobe, and what you are not allowed to do. This should help counter confusion and stop people from getting into trouble.

Chat Offenses

First, let's get into our chat-offense rules. Everything listed below is fully up to date information on what we punish for in chat-related scenarios; however, senior staff members reserve the right to punish for reasons not listed here.

#1 Spamming
Anything that disrupts the flow of the chat. Different types of spam include typing in capital letters, posting multiple of the same or similar messages within a short amount of time, or sending messages which do not make sense. Additionally, posting messages with an excessive amount of characters is considered spam.
#2 Advertising
We do not allow any form of server advertising on MineGlobe. This is when you directly post in chat for players to join another server. Additionally, talking about a product, service, or media channel/video that is not related to MineGlobe is not allowed.
#3 Extreme Toxicity
We do not allow toxic discussions in chat, we are a non-toxic community and toxicity is met with harash repercussions. Talking about sensitive subjects which may offend people is not allowed. To make the server enjoyable for everyone you should not exclude or insult someone based on age, disability, gender reassignment, maternity, race, regilion, belief, sex or sexual orientation.
#4 Drama/ Harassment
Players are not allowed to initiate, fuel, spread or discuss drama. Malicious or abusive discussions about other players or staff are punishable. Intentional harassment of another player will result in a mute and possibly ban.
#5 Inappropriate behaviour
Players are not allowed to cause drama in chat. This includes, but is not limited to discussing inappropriate topics such as drugs, sexual activities, illegal activities, mental health [e.g. suicide or self-harm] and breaking server rules.
#6 Discrimination/Racism/Bigotry
Discriminating towards a group of people. To make the server enjoyable for everyone you should not exclude or insult someone based on age, disability, gender reassignment, maternity, race, religion, belief, sex or sexual orientation.
#7 Inappropriate Links
Inappropriate Links/NSFW content is not allowed on the network. Using sites such as Imgur/Lightshot to host your photos, but them still being inappropriate is also not allowed. Posting shock/screamer links also falls under this rule.
#8 Server Disrespect
Disrespecting MineGlobe in any way, is not allowed on the network. Discussion around this will also be faced with punishment.
#9 Staff Disrespect
Disrespecting staff members specifically, does not mean going against their opinions/debating with staff. This means heavily berating/demoralising staff, rioting against staff, or over a punishment that was issued, etc..
#10 Malicious Threats (DDOS, Hacking, Death, DOX, etc.)
We take the safety of our players very seriously and thus do not allow others to threaten each other with DDOS/Hacking/DOX threats or to release their private information. This does not include jokes between friends, but does include frequent remarks such as "Your internet is about to lag" or similar. Death threats and other malicious attacks are not allowed. At staff discretion, death wishes and suicide encouragement will be punished.
#11 Lying to Staff
Lying to staff in any form is not allowed and will be met with punishment, this can be but is not limited to, in-game chat, in tickets such as reports or appeals. An example of this would be lying to staff about a player stealing your items to get free items.
#12 Staff Impersonation
Changing your nickname to pretend to be someone else or to bully, harass or attack someone else will result in punishment. Impersonating staff for the sole purpose of assisting players/threatening to punish is also against the rules.

Gameplay Offenses

Second, let's get into our gameplay rules. Everything listed below is fully up to date information on what we punish for in gameplay-related scenarios; however, senior staff members reserve the right to punish for reasons not listed here.

#1 Cheating
The use of any modification which gives you an unfair advantage over other players. This can be through clients or modifications deemed unapproved by our staff team. If you are unsure about the use of modifications and if will lead to punishment, ask our staff team.
#2 Macros
The use of a hotkey in any way to give an advantage over other players. Using a hotkey to warp out of PVP in any way or a hotkey to automatically sell items both fall under this rule. Using hotkeys to welcome players to the server are allowed.
#3 X-Ray
The use of any X-Ray modification/hack which gives you an advantage over other players by finding items such as, but not limited to: ores, spawners, or caverns. If suspected of using X-Ray, you will be punished by our staff team.
#4 Griefing
Intentional destruction of another player's build. This also includes stealing, and killing contained passive mobs in other players territory. Editing blocks around players’ claims in some circumstances may also count towards griefing, such as planting massive jungle trees.
#5 Abusing Glitches
Using a glitch to gain an advantage over other players on the server. More severe bugs such as economy breaking bugs will be faced with harsher punishments if abused. If you find any bug please do report it straight away.
#6 Block Glitching
Using blocks to climb areas that you are not meant to have access to and breaking blocks to “phase” through walls into other players claims/safe zones are not allowed and will be punished.
#7 Abusing Safe Zones
Abusing safe zones to attack other players from the safe zone area. This rule also applies if you are killing others while you are in PVP and they are in the safe zone. Using any method to get back into safe zones is also punishable, such as using a trident with the Riptide enchantment.
#8 Duping and Crashing
Abusing exploits to unfairly gain items, such as duping/cheating in items. Using exploits to crash the server/lower the TPS deliberately will also be punished. Builds that significantly lower the FPS of others causing extreme lag, cause a player to lag or lag the server are not allowed, will be cleared and may result in a ban. If it is obvious that the laggy build was not intentional, then a ban will not be given, just a warning.
#9 Teaming with Cheaters
Teaming with or knowingly benefitting from those who cheat or abuse is prohibited. Cheating includes but is not limited to hacking, exploiting, bug abuse and scamming. This rule will also apply if you do not report a known cheater.
#10 Insiding
Stealing other team members’ items, breaking spawners of other players farms in your claim and deliberately destroying the claim member’s claimed blocks that you are trusted in will all go under this rule. This rule includes joining other people's islands/parties to take their items and just leave afterwards.
#11 TP Trapping
Trapping players in your claim once they have asked to teleport to you is against the rules and will be faced with punishment for doing so. This rule also applies if you willingly teleport a player into the pvp area.
#12 Illegal Killing
Killing a player in any area other than the PVP zone. This includes but is not limited to, using lava/fire to burn players, using cactus or suffocating other players.
#13 Scamming
Scamming is not allowed on any server within our Network. Scamming can include naming an item incorrectly and selling it in the auction house or via other trade methods. Such as naming a leather helmet “Crystal Helmet” to try and scam people. Another method would be offering to pay a certain amount for an item but when you receive the item the buyer doesn't pay the money and vice versa.
#14 Inappropriate Builds
Inappropriate Builds, such as penises and swastikas, will be immediately cleared and may result in a ban. This applies to all servers.
#15 Inappropriate Names
Extremely inappropriate usernames are punishable with a ban until the username is changed. Once your username is changed, appeal with a ticket.
#16 Punishment evasion
Evading punishments through the use of alternative accounts is not allowed and will be met with harsher punishments if you bypass and continue to do so. IP mutes/bans will be given in extreme cases, with blacklists being given in the most extreme of cases.
