I think tpa-killing should have its own section. Also maybe include indirect tpa-killing, killing a player who is near to the one you tpa'd to, and having the right to fight back if the person you tpa'd you starting damaging you.

"Pushing players who are trying to build is a form of harassment. Standing the the way while they are trying to build something in their town is harassment as well."

Just an error in grammar.

Nice post by the way. It is nice to see more clarity.

About the griefing within 64 blocks of a town, in the rules, last I checked it was 120 blocks away from a town. Can someone confirm which one is the (current) final standing? I don't want to call grief on someone who is outside of 64 if 120 is no longer the restriction.

The town border has been decreased from 120 to 64. So anything inside 64 can be considered town border grief (depending on the situation).

Can we add something in about arguing with staff members? I've seen on multiple occasions where players will spend 15-20 minutes arguing with staff about loopholes in rules, am honestly, I think its quite annoying, for both the staff who have to deal with this and the others on the server who have to witness this conversation occur. There should be a rule that states if a staff member tells you to stop doing something, you should obey, and if you continue to argue with them, no matter the reason, they are allowed to mute you. If the player has a problem with this, they can post a forums post with screenshots and logs and state their argument there. I feel this would save both the staff members and other players the stress of having to deal with this in game.

On a side note, the rules say the only afk machine allowed is in spawn, but that doesn't exist anymore xD

  • No cheating, hacking, or exploiting bugs.
    • Cheating: Cheating is the getting of a reward for ability or finding an easy way out of an unpleasant situation by dishonest means. It is generally used for the breaking of rules to gain unfair advantage in a competitive situation.
    • Hacking encompasses client-side mods or tools which would give a player an advantage over the general player base. These mods/tools include macros, x-ray, pvp beneficial mods (kill aura, spam click, etc.), auto clickers, and any mods/tools which staff would deem game breaking.
    • Bugs are rampant throughout plugins and are constantly being fixed by the staff. Some of these bugs which are included in plugins cannot be fixed by us. A few instances of bugs that should be noted are as follow: any method of item duplication, any bypass of a staff protected area (ie. barrier blocks have a hole, report it, don’t explore.), modifications to player stats that bypass locked permissions (adding health, speed, flying). These are just a few major instances of bugs in minecraft and there are many more. If you encounter a bug, whether it is fixable or not, report it to staff immediately. Do not abuse the bug, do not hide the bug. Any individual abusing, hiding, or attempting to abuse a bug will be banned for a specified duration.
  • No racism or homophobia, warnings and mutes WILL be issued.
    • Poor treatment of- or violence against people because of their race or sexual orientation.
    • This includes any terms deemed derogatory, racist, homophobic, sexist, or any variant of said terms. Any use, including casual use will not be tolerated. Warnings and mutes will be issued.
    • This applies to any form of communication. If attempting to bypass a chat mute, you will receive a ban of equal severity.
  • Keep swearing to a minimum.
    • This is a discretionary rule. Staff may choose the severity of these mutes on a case by case basis.
  • No anti-afk machines.
    • No client side auto mods (fisher, clicker, etc.)
    • There is an afk kick timer that, once the player has idled into or has issued the command /afk, begins a 10 minute countdown until it kicks you from the server. Avoiding this timer using a client side mod, an altered client, a macro of any kind, or any other method which would avoid the afk timer with intent to make income, farm items, farm plants, or any sort of grinding is not allowed and will result in a ban.
  • Do not disrespect or harrass players or staff.
    • Being respectful to others is mostly done by using common sense, characterized by or showing politeness or deference.
    • Treat other players with a sense of dignity. If players are conducting a trade, allow them to do so privately. If staff members are conducting their duties, allow them to do so without impeding.
    • Pushing players who are trying to build in their town is a form of harassment. Standing in the way while they are trying to build something in their town is harassment as well.
    • If a staff member feels you are burdening them from performing their tasks, you may be asked to stop and then muted/banned if appropriate.
  • No town grief within 64 blocks of a town.
    • Town grief involves either building or destroying near a town to cause distress to either the owner or residents. Any buildings which are considered grief (cobble stacks included) will be torn down and will result in the maker being banned for an allotted time period. Any destruction outside a town plot which causes distress to any members of the town is bannable.
    • This rule is governed by upper staff as there are many technicalities which will be considered. Please report any grief to lower staff so it may be documented and checked out.
    • Please note, it is the town owners responsibility to make sure that town and plot permissions are set up properly. This also includes handing permission bypass ranks(comayor,assistant, etc.) to players.
  • Don't abuse the disarm ability.
    • The disarm ability is used to take the item out of the main hand of a player during pvp. Abusing this ability is defined as using to steal items with no intentions of pvp. This includes taking items before the 6 minute tp timer finishes and also taking items and teleporting out of the pvp to store/sell/destroy the item.
  • Don't tp-kill people.
    • Tp killing involves teleporting to a player or teleporting someone to you using any tpa command (/tpa, /tpahere). Any player or players killed within the time limit of 6 minutes has the right to post a ban report.
    • As with town grief, this offense is tricky and requires chat logs and proof. Please refer to upper staff or the forums ban reports section to report a tp kill and provide evidence.
  • Don't scam.
    • A scam is a term used to describe any fraudulent business or scheme that takes money or other goods from an unsuspecting person. Example: Person A: Selling 10 diamonds, 5 each. Person B: I'll buy them Person A: *drops them on Person B* Person B: Person B does not pay Person A and leaves.
    • Scamming occurs when a claim is made between players trading items, services, or in game credits of any kind. If a player claims to provide a specific type and/or amount of items, services, or credits and does not provide full compensation of the amount stated, the player at fault has broken the no scamming rule and is at risk of a ban.
    • Auction scamming isn't allowed either (renaming an item to pass it off as something else or in any way lying about what the item actually is).
  • Un-Claimed land is allowed to be griefed, be careful where you build!
    • Any land that is not claimed as a town using the towny plugin and is not within 64 blocks of a town is subject to stealing, looting, pillaging, destroying, blowing up, building on top of, locking, and many other possibilities. Please protect your things with /lock and check out /towny prices.
Im not saying I've seen this at all/ heard of it/ or intend to do it. But what about if (for instance) Person A tp's to person B and Person A tp's person C to person B after person B tp's person A then person C kills person B. Is that considered tpa killing? If so It might be good to state it. Thank you for your time

Yep tp killing. May require a bunch of logs to be pulled/a flowchart to be made, but it will be tp killing.

Due to recent complaints about the auction being boosted to ridiculous amounts with ill intent for example a 100$ auction being boosted to 5000$ with the intent of having others lose their money. We have decided to make this against the rules under the section of scamming.

Tp killing involves teleporting to a player or teleporting someone to you using any tpa command (/tpa, /tpahere).
/tpa and /tpahere are the only commands directly teleporting you to another player, so no, rtp does not count as tp killing.

Do not disrespect or harrass players or staff.
If a staff member for example the imaginary staff member potatolover098253 Goes by the nickname Potatolover and is known for that nickname, decides to change their nickname for holidays season or for a short while. Changing to their known nickname and interacting with others or changing to their known nickname will be met with a warning both verbally and warning wise or in extreme cases a small ban (or just give the player a instant 3 day ban. Me salty.)
This is a suggestion after the recent situation and after asking a staff member about it recently finding out its a big no-no but nothing is listed here...
(edit: This rule can also go for other players nicknames, who are known for a nickname since there was a situation a while back that caused a lot of drama and impersonating others is a big no-no)
