    Rules that apply on all servers
    you agree to all of these rules when connecting and making use of the PhanaticMC minecraft server and affiliated resources (website, discord, facebook page, etc)
    • Do not discuss bans or punishments in chat
      • Punishment: temporary mute
      • Details: We have a ban appeals section on the forums as well as the web interface for the ban plugin, asking staff to unban/unmute your friend is not allowed. Also saying the ban/mute in chat for causing unnecessary drama is not allowed. For example "wow everyone look my friend got muted for ____ this is so unfair" is not acceptable
    • No Advertising other servers
      • Punishment: ban & IP ban if spammy and purposely advertising, temporary ban or mute if saying in passing without a real intent to advertise
      • Details: Includes private message. We want players to stay here, it is rude and is an abuse of the chat to advertise. Obviously it is also harmful to the server to lose players. Just mentioning server names is counted in this to ensure no loopholes.
    • Alternate accounts
      • Alts are allowed on the condition you make commonly known it is an alt, and announce when joining the server in chat, or tell anyone who asks. For example say "This account is an alt of PhanaticD" when joining or asked by any player. Hiding the fact that it is in alt if found out will result in ban of alt.
      • If alt is used to bypass any form of punishment (mute/ban) then punishment of original account will be increased, and alt account will be permanently banned with no appeal possible for alt
      • breaking the rules on an alt will result in "main" account receiving appropriate punishment and alt permanently banned with no appeal possible
      • saying an account is your alt or claiming to be an alt of someone you are not will result in ban of alt
      • if you use a shared alt, that is your risk and responsibility. There will be no special treatment for griefing etc
      • If a "main" account receives punishment, all alts are subject to same punishment. If "main" is unbanned/unmuted from appeal or purchase, alts are subject to same unban/unmute
      • Compromised/hacked/stolen/leaked accounts are not allowed to be used as alts
      • If you previously had an alt banned prior to the rule change for alts, you may appeal for it for unban prior to October 8, 2019
      • discord and website alts are still not allowed
    • No real world trading
      • Punishment: warning, then tempban if continued
      • Details: Asking anywhere on the server to trade items for buycraft purchases or cash is not allowed. This is also for your own protection from chargeback bans

    • Language
      • Punishment: at discretion of staff
      • Details: any inappropriate language can result in any punishment and is completely at the discretion of staff for the situation involved. Since this means mature usage of language is allowed, you may not want to see it. If so use the command /censor to replace inappropriate words with **** in chat
    • No bypassing mutes
      • Punishment: tempban
      • Details: do not bypass a mute using anything another player can see, for example faction tags, pets, disguises, signs, or books

    Rank Purchase Specific Rules

    Can I buy a rank for a friend?

    - yes, but only if said person consents. Buying anything for someone without their permission will result in the money being refunded and a 10 day ban.

    To actually report someone buying a rank for you that you did not want, just send me an email: [email protected]

    This is now the policy in place as a preventative measure against someone buying you a rank then opening a chargeback on it resulting in you being banned. If you do not email me asking for the rank to be removed you accept full responsibility for the ranks, and if there is a chargeback, you WILL be banned until the money is re-paid. The only exception to this is if you did not make use of the rank. You can appeal the ban and I will check if you actually used the features of the rank, this will prevent purchases made for the sole intention of getting you banned.

    Can I give out kits?
    - yes but for servers with an economy please sell them instead (except minigames)

    You are not allowed to impersonate staff using pets or disguises

    You are not allowed to auction or otherwise exploit gadgets items

    No Refunds

    No Rank transfers

    No charge backs, you will be banned until repaid

    - You are not allowed to sell anything or do giveaways involving money without asking first
