Taken from the Rules page on the server's official website.

Players who break the rules on the server or in the Telegram groups may be banned from both places.

​These rules may not be exhaustive, and I may decide to ban a player for some other reason. I am generally pretty easy-going, but if someone is making someone else feel unsafe I will take what I judge to be appropriate action.

General rules

You may be banned if you:

  • Pressure someone, or are rude, disrespectful, or unnecessarily aggressive towards other players or the admin.

You will be banned if:

  • You tell someone that their pronouns are wrong or that their gender doesn't exist
  • You are found to be under 18 years old
  • You spam
  • I don't have a valid email address for you

Players who are under 18 could check out the /r/AspieGaming subreddit's Minecraft server (look in the sidebar on the right and scroll down a bit).

Server rules

These rules have to be followed by people while they're playing on the server.

You will be banned if you:

  1. Steal
  2. Grief
  3. Harm another player without both of you consenting to PvP. This includes indirect attacks, e.g. if you don't have consent for hurting someone with a sword, don't drop a bucket of lava on them. If you attack someone in any way they must be able to defend themself. You may find the blog post about our plugin PvP Manager helpful.

There are exceptions to stealing and messing with a plot that someone else made; see inactive players and abandoned builds.

Rules in the Telegram groups

Telegram is an instant message (IM) client, a bit like WhatsApp but cross-platform. Some of us use it to socialise and co-ordinate group events or missions. Upon joining the server you'll receive invite links that will allow you to join the various groups.

These rules are specific to our Telegram groups and may be changed or added to at any time as we learn what works and what doesn't. Should you break the rules, you may be banned from the groups, but not the server itself.

Chatter

We have a main group called Chatter for on- and off-topic discussion and socialising.

It is a Telegram "supergroup", which means new members to the group can read all messages ever written.

Conflict

Occasionally a disagreement may arise in the Telegram Chatter group. In the interest of all members feeling safe and comfortable, people disagreeing with each other may be asked to move their discussion to the Conflict group.

It is also a supergroup, which means new members to the group can read all messages ever written.

Anyone can ask anyone else to move a discussion to the Conflict group at any time, and should not be pressured to justify themself.

Members who are uncomfortable with moving the disagreement to the Conflict group must stop participating in the disagreement immediately.

No one should feel any pressure whatsoever to join the Conflict group.

Abandoned builds

In some situations it is possible to move into an abandoned plot. See abandoned builds and inactive players for more information.
