PvPingMC Rules and Guidelines
This thread contains all the rules and guidelines you need to abide by when playing on the PvPingMC network. If you do not follow these rules you will be punished by a member of our staff team. If you see anyone breaking these rules and wish to report them, feel free to make a thread in our player reports section.
FORUM, CHAT AND DISCORD RULESVulgar Language
Cursing or any sort of vulgar language, towards a player or not, is not allowed on the network. Our network is played by a lot of younger children for which reason we want to keep the chat as clean as we possibly can. Failing to comply with this rule will result in you being muted.
Double posting is not allowed at all. This includes sending the same message again with a few corrections in it rather than just sending the correction below. Double posting will get you warned, and if you continue you will be muted. Console clients are also not allowed to double post. Messages have to be 2 minutes apart if you are setting up a script on them.
Tagging Staff Members
This rule applies to Discord only. You are not allowed to tag staff members in our Discord server. Doing so will get you warned and if you continue to do this you will be removed from the Discord.
Advertising and links in chat
Links in chat are fine as long as they do not advertise any other Minecraft server or contain anything that could be deemed as inappropriate. Do not put in chat any links such as referral links or anything along those lines. Advertising of any Discord server is not allowed.
Advertising any other Minecraft network is not allowed. Whether this is a YouTube video that advertises another server (as mentioned above) or an IP in chat. This includes in private messages.
An example of this would be "Who wants free money??". You are not allowed to encourage the chat to spam. Doing so will get yourself muted.
Player Disrespect and Staff Disrespect
We have a vast number of small children on our network, for which reason we want to keep the chat as clean and as nice as possible. Do not insult or disrespect any user on our network. Whether you may be saying it as a joke to them or not, it is not acceptable. Even if the user you are talking to is your friend, do not do it as the same punishments will apply.
Our staff team works very hard to keep the server up to the right standards. Please respect them and make them feel welcomed. Whether you call them "a bad staff member" or personally insult them, this is staff disrespect. If you do think they are a bad staff member then you can report them on the forums.
Racism and Discrimination
Racism and Discrimination is quite frankly disgusting. If you are caught saying anything racist or discriminating you will be permanently muted. Some examples of this is calling people disrespectful nick names based on their racial group, calling people homophobic names and categorizing people into ethnic groups. Whether you mean this to harm someone, or you are saying it in a joking manner to your friends, you will be muted.
Anyone caught saying death threats, or encouraging someone to hurt themselves will be permanently muted. Again, even if you say "kys" to a friend, it is not acceptable and you will be punished.
DDoS or DOX Comedy
Both of the above things are completely illegal and will not be tolerated at all on our network. Whether you are joking around to your friends saying that you are going to "ddos them", or whether you actually plan on following through with your threat, you will be removed from the network. This is completely unacceptable.
Pretending to be a staff member is against our rules. This can be in the form of nick naming yourself to the name of a staff member, saying that you're going to give out punishments or just straight up telling people that you are a staff member. You will be muted if you are caught doing this.
Anything that you put as your nick name that you would not say in chat is classed as an inappropriate nick name. If you put anything in your nick name that breaks the rules above you will be asked to remove it. If you fail to do so you will lose permission to change your nick name.
Wasting staff time
Our staff are a crucial part to our network, and having their time wasted is extremely annoying. Anything from false reports, leading staff on or creating false problems for them to come and try and solve is not allowed.
SERVER RULESAuto Mine Macros
Auto mine macros are not allowed at all. This essentially means that you cannot leave an alternative account running 24/7 executing commands while still mining. This includes them being able to /fix all or executing commands like /home.
There are a few rules for island top. Coupons are to be used before the following Friday unless you are told otherwise. Coupons are also to be used on the realm you win them on unless you are told otherwise. If you are caught transferring levels between islands without updating your island levels, you will be disqualified from island top.
TP trapping will get you banned, whether this may be a nether portal trap or something else. Don't do it and expect to get away with it.
Due to performance benefits, all users are required to stack their spawners. This means that if you have 1 villager spawner for example, you cannot place another spawner until you have maxed that stack. Obviously this only applies to per farm per type, and not per island or anything like that.
As every other server seems have to removed this, so have we. There is no alt limit on any of our realms, however, there are some rules. Alt accounts can only be online if they have a purpose such as AFKing spawners, AFKing farms or something like that. They cannot just be standing on your island collecting keys. You may still have 4 alts + your main collecting keys.
If you are banned from PvPingMC and you try to login to another account while you are still banned, you will be IP banned from the network and unable to join ever again. We strongly suggest not using alt shops as they commonly resell the same account. These accounts are usually banned on PvPingMC so if you login you may be banned by our staff team for ban evading.
Cheating and key mapping
Anything that gives you an advantage over another player is classed as cheating. From auto clicking to xray to mob aura, you are not allowed to do this. Caught doing this and you will be permanently banned from the network.
Using a program to change the layout of your keyboard to allow you to left click when you press any key is not allowed. Doing this will get you banned.
IRL trading and Account Sales
This is completely prohibited. You are not allowed to trade anything in game for money on any platform. An example of this would be selling your spawners for PayPal money. This is not allowed, however you can sell your spawners in exchange for Buycraft items that another users purchases for you. This also includes selling your island top gift cards. If found out, they will just be deleted.
Account sales are also not allowed, we are not a marketplace.
Scamming and Auction House Scamming
Scamming is not allowed at all. However you do the scam, whether it be through renaming spawners and putting them on auction house or doing it VIA /trade you will be banned. It is not fair on other players to be scammed all of their hard work.
Boosting your statistics on any of our servers such as Kits will get you permanently banned.
Insiding is now bannable. If you are insided please leave a player report. We may not be able to recover all your items but we will be able to ban the player that insided you. This should hopefully prevent a lot of people from insiding. Items placed on any island become the property of the island leader. If the island leader chooses to kick you, we cannot get your items back.
We offer a server based economy with a shop that has unlimited funds, however sometimes we may mis-configure this which results in unfair economy advantages such as buying something, and selling it for more, or a spawner being too cheap as apposed to its projected income. Another example of this would be a block in the shop that gives a lot more island value than it should do. Please note this only applies to server provided economies, such as /shop.
We implemented a command for you to report players to make it easier for you. Abusing this by putting in false reasons to get a staff members attention, or putting in random rubbish is a punishable offence.
Exploiting or Bug Abuse
Exploiting and bug at all, whether it be vanilla Minecraft or one of our plugins is not allowed. Things like duplication glitches are completely prohibited from using and you should report to a staff member if you ever stumble across one. Failing to report any exploits or bugs will result in your being blacklisted.
