Server Rules

1. Do not cheat.

Cheating can be defined as, but is not limited to the following:

  • X-ray (including texture packs)
  • Hacking
  • Abusing exploits
  • Alt abuse

2. Do not flood chat/advertise/post shortened links.

  • Chat spam (character and repeat messages) should be handled by the chat filter. Attempting to bypass this is not allowed.
  • Advertising: this includes other MC servers as well as personal Discord servers etc. Advertising your twitch stream is fine as long as you are currently playing on DreamCloud, and you limit your in-game ads to 1 per 5 minutes.
  • Avoid posting shortened links in chat, and keep any links appropriate.

If you are constantly sending links then you may be asked to stop and if you don’t will result in an advertisement Ban. Some of these may not apply if you have permission from a staff member to share or have the Youtube rank.

Sending any IP grabbers in chat will also result in a permanent ban.

Do not Spam or Use Excessive Capitals

Spam or use of excessive capital letters is not allowed. We consider spam to be messages of a similar nature repeated consecutively. Messages consisting of a large number of capital letters also follow this category and is considered spam. Multiple staff members may consider spam differently, please respect their judgment.

Any type of chat flood or spam in any way ie, command spam, msg spam, etc, are included in this rule as well.

3. Do not Grief. Raiding is fair in unclaimed land. Do not abuse claim trust.

  • Grief: the unauthorized destruction or alteration of other’s property is not permitted, in both claimed and unclaimed land.
  • Raiding: the taking of items in chests and or storage, is permitted in unclaimed land only. (excludes armour stands, item frames, and jukeboxes)

4. No bypassing PvP protection plugins.

Do not PVP without both parties consenting. TP killing, kill warps, traps, etc. are not permitted. Trapping and luring players into traps is forbidden. Some of these traps make it impossible for the trapped player to enjoy the game. This includes but is not limited to tp trapping and portal trapping. Please remember that portal trapping is not only a trap. It is also an exploit/glitch.

Any trapping on friendly servers will result in a warning first to remove the trap if you do not do this, or if you keep doing it in the future, it will result in temp bans and eventually a permanent ban.

5. No scamming.

Do not intentionally scam other players. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Breaking an agreement regarding items sold/traded.
  • Rigging minigames or casinos to never win.
  • Selling an item disguised as another legitimate item. (re-names are fine unless that item actually exists,

Any scamming that pertains to real-life items/currency is not allowed. Along with this any in real-life trading for in-game ranks/items is also not allowed. You may not sell in-game items for IRL money or the other way around.

6. Afk farms aren’t allowed, but auto farms are.

  • Afk farm: any farm that requires user input while that user is AFK. An example is an AFK fish farm.
  • Auto farm: any farm that can run passively without user input. An example of this is an automated melon farm.
  • Macros, afk pools, and other tools to attempt to bypass the afk timer are not allowed.

7. No inappropriate names, skins, capes, builds, or chat.

You are not allowed to build or wear anything that is 18+, racist, regarding Nazi Propaganda, or offensive. Building something of this manner will result in your plot or building being erased with no questions asked. Nazi propaganda will result in an instant ban along with the removal of the build. The same applies to skins, capes, and usernames.

Any names (IGN, nickname, tool name, or pet name) or other inappropriate behaviour or text is not permitted.

8. Do not claim or build directly next to others claims or builds.

Claiming too close to another base, without permission, will result in your base being removed. Please consider a rough figure of 100+ blocks as a safe distance to build (this distance is not exact, and is up to staff interpretation).

9. Do not discuss real-world, current politics in open channels.

Please utilize private messages or parties to discuss these topics.

10. Predatory behaviour will not be tolerated.

This is self-explanatory.

11. Do not harass other players.

Harassment can be identified as, but is not limited to the following:

  • Consistent unsolicited messaging (in-game, private messages, mail).
  • Tp request spam.
  • Refusing to leave a build or claim.
  • Targeted profanity.

12. Do not share personal information in public chats.

While we discourage the sharing of personal information in general, if you insist on doing so, please keep it in private messages.

14. Staff impersonation is not permitted.

We have no problem with players helping other players, we encourage it and there’s nothing wrong with it. However, please do not act as though you are a staff member. This is a form of impersonation, even though you may explicitly state that you are not related to the staff team. We ask that you do not answer questions you are unsure of or state server-related speculations that have not been confirmed. Examples of this are changing your nickname or claiming in chat to be staff.

15. Do not falsely report players.

Please refrain from filing jokes or slanderous reports on other players as this wastes staff’s time and hurts others.

16. Ban or Mute evasion is not permitted.

Ban/Mute evasion is using an alt account to log in to the server to bypass an existing ban or mute on another account. If you find a way around this and still send a message to anyone on the server, you could be banned.

17. Team rules do not override server rules.

Server rules will always be applied to team members and owners, regardless of the individual rules that the town might have. Staff also does not enforce team rules, and will only step in to enforce server rules, or to approve claim/build removals in certain circumstances.

18. Do not abuse alternative accounts.

Alt abuse can be defined as, but is not limited to:

  • Mass usage of alts to generate vote rewards.
  • Keeping chunks loaded at farms or grinders etc.
  • Looting the contents of accounts that do not belong to you (leaked accounts).
