Cloudcraft Rules

We want every new player and existing player's experience on the server to be the best it can be, and to do this we must create rules to maintain the server structure and authority.

Ingame Rules Discord Rules Forum Rules


INGAME RULES
 
The ingame rules are split into three categories:
Chat Offenses ~ Offenses that occur in public or private chat.
Gameplay Offenses ~ Offenses that occur while ingame or an action a player does.
Miscellaneous Offenses ~ Anything that doesn't fall under the Chat or Gameplay Offenses.

If a player does commit an offense on Cloudcraft, there are 5 different punishments a player may experience:
Chat Offenses: Temporary Mute, Permanent Mute
Gameplay Offenses: Temporary Ban, Permanent Ban
Miscellaneous Offenses: Revokment*, Permanent Ban, Blacklist, IP-Ban
*Revokements are a temporary restriction of using a feature of the server or a command.

The rules are categorized by three different severity punishment durations. (seperate for each offense)
 
Offense Category Severity One Severity Two Severity Three
Chat Offenses 5 hour mute* 12 hour mute Permanent Mute 
Gameplay Offenses 1-day ban 14-day ban 30-day ban
Miscellaneous Offenses -- -- --
*All Severity One Chat Offenses require a warning before the punishment listed in the table.
