Rules

============================

| Overview & Disclaimer

The rules listed here apply to any official server or discussion area owned by ParadiseMC. It is up to the discretion of the ParadiseMC staff team to decide how strictly rules will be enforced and how severe punishments will be. Attempting to exploit loopholes within the rules, or giving excuses to staff members is not allowed and doing so may lead to more severe punishment. If any of the rules are unclear to you, make sure to contact a staff member for further clarification.

The staff of ParadiseMC reserve the right to add, delete, modify, bypass, overrule, append, or ignore any or all of the below at any given time. You can relate this disclaimer with elastic cause.

Any technical loopholes can and will leave you responsible and thus punishable at our discretion. By playing on the server or partaking in any of its’ services, you agree to the terms and conditions listed here and agree to follow all rules and regulations.

All punishments are given by trained staff members. Illegal actions on the server are recorded and used as evidence. Do not argue with a staff member about your punishment, as you may have broken a rule without realizing it. If you are completely sure that you were unjustly punished, fill out a complaint ticket (https://paradise-mc.net/tickets) with as much information as possible, or submit an appeal with all useful information. All avenues will be investigated.

Depending on the severity of your infraction, staff are fully allowed to bar your access from our servers for a temporary amount of time or indefinitely. In order to repeal this action, you must appeal.

| Global Rules

These rules apply to all Paradise servers. All exceptions are listed.

  1. Do not exploit any server bugs or glitches.
  1. We understand sometimes there will be tempting bugs or exploits. We’d appreciate them being reported to a staff member rather than being used to break the game. On that note being caught exploiting can land you in some serious trouble and can even get most of your items removed or even get you banned!
  1. Do not attempt to evade a ban or a mute by using an alternate account.
  1. You were banned/muted for a reason, and using a secondary account to avoid these punishments can get your alternate account permanently muted or banned as well. Repeated offenses may result in an IP ban.
  2. Mute evading includes, but is not limited to: Using /epm to message others, talking in Island Teamchat, talking in factions chat, talking in plot chat, using [item] or /pshout to bypass your mutes.
  1. Scamming is forbidden in all forms on every server excluding Factions and Prison.
  1. Note: Scamming Cosmetic items on any server will land you a permanent trade ban.
  1. Using any unauthorized mod or hacked client will result in an immediate permanent ban with no prior warning.
  1. List of Allowed Mods
  2. Please note that using a hacked client is strictly prohibited, regardless if you are only using the allowed mods in it.
  3. The use of scripts, macros, autoclickers, and 3rd party devices to automate your actions is strictly forbidden.
  1. Do not threaten other players (this includes threats to Dox, Ddos, and the actual action of doxing).
  1. This will result in a long temporary mute or a permanent mute.
  2. This also includes any other variation of threatening another player.
  1. Inappropriate or explicit usernames and skins are not permitted. Users with these types of usernames and skins will be permanently banned until the offensive content is removed.
  2. Offensive or explicit builds are not allowed under any circumstances.
  1. Exceptions - see “Factions Rules”
  1. AFK Machines or AFK Pools are not permitted.
  1. Exceptions - see “Factions Rules”
  1. Redstone contraptions intended to cause lag are not permitted.
  1. On this note, some players have asked if an I45 is okay to build on skyblock. They are, as long as they’re built correctly. If they’re not, it can cause an insane amount of lag on your island. Not sure how to make one? Watch Clydesdalefan’s video here.
  1. Spawn camping another player’s home/base is not allowed.
  1. Exceptions - see “Factions Rules”
  2. Waiting near a pvp-protected area for a player to come out is also considered spawn camping.
  1. Traps are strictly forbidden on every server, excluding Factions and Prison.
  1. The only traps that are not allowed on Factions and Prison are nether portal traps.
  1. Combat logging is not permitted.
  1. We have an automatic system that handles this, but if you manage to bypass it or if it is repeated enough, you may receive a temporary or permanent ban.
  1. Donor abuse is not tolerated on PMC. Doing so can result in a rank strip but is ultimately up to the discretion of the board of directors based on severity of the abuse. Examples of donor abuse are of the following but not limited to:
  1. Using /fix or /mob for other players in game for an exchange of goods or ingame currency.
  2. Using perks in areas such as pvp, like /fly, where it would otherwise not be allowed.
  3. Using any perks given to you as the result of a rank and using them to create an unfair advantage or to gain ingame currency is considered donor abuse.

| Chat Rules

These rules apply to the website as well.

  1. Do not ask for OP or Admin (you will probably be laughed at).

  1. Discrimination, racism, or any other form of hate speech is not allowed.
  2. Do not ask about the status of your application or appeal.

  1. This includes player, staff, and even server disrespect.
  2. Any form of disrespect will not be tolerated, and players will be warned, or even muted for doing so.
