A replica of our server rules, these are also on our Discord.
Rules are subject to change at any time without notice as we develop and add features to our platforms. Please keep up to date with changes here.
These chat rules apply for both our Discord and Minecraft Server.
I. No Spamming / English Only
Spamming with any characters, photos, or messages is not permitted. It is not acceptable to mass mention players or members. The same applies when using excessively loud or unpleasant language in text or voice channels. To make sure everyone can understand each other we ask that you only speak English, unless you are speaking privately. We will give a warning but after that you will be muted.
II. No Harrasment
Never harass other users or make fun of them in a crude or uncomfortable way. Swearing is acceptable as long as it is used sparingly. (Staff members can and will have different opinions on what is considered excessive) It is never acceptable to instruct members to harass or harm a user. Finally, staff members have the right to mute or remove anyone who purposefully provokes a large number of individuals.
III. No Racial Slurs / Derogatory Comments / Religion & Politics
Anyone who uses a racial slur will be permanently banned. It's also not acceptable to insult or make fun of someone due to their sexual orientation. Any versions of racist slurs or derogatory comments will be dealt with appropriately. Please refrain from discussing delicate subjects like religion, current politics, and historical politics in public chats.
IV. No NSFW Content
Pornography of any kind is not permitted. We will not tolerate content that uses links or any other kind of technology to hack or reveal a member's personal information. Any content intended to harm or frighten a member is prohibited.
V. No Impersonation / Disrespect / Empty Tickets
Any impersonation of an MCX staff member is prohibited. We also strongly discourage people from impersonating any member, and can punish if necessary. It is not acceptable to disrespect a staff member or player; we want this community to be a positive one! Please refrain from creating blank tickets or wasting staff time with tickets in general.
Any links that are not related to The MCX may not be posted. Ask administration for permission before streaming on this server. Please open a ticket if you wish to post YouTube content so that our staff team can talk about the specifics and give you permission. It's not permitted to post advertising links or Discord invites. If you wish to advertise for this server, kindly get permission first. Members cannot "mass DM" in an attempt to lure them away from The MCX.
VII. Personal Information You are not permitted to send any personally identifying information about anyone, including yourself, in public channels. The toughest penalties will be applied if you attempt to dox or blackmail someone. Without the express consent of everyone in the image, do not publish screenshots of private conversations from DMs, MSGs, Party Chats, or any other private channels into public channels ones.
These rules apply to our Minecraft server.
I. Griefing / Stealing
You are NOT allowed to destroy any players work without direct permission from the player themself or a server moderator and up. This includes claimed and unclaimed areas. Any sort of theft of items that have been protected by claims is prohibited. We do not recommend looting unclaimed areas as if any of the items stolen are reported, you will be met with punishment. You are only allowed to mass land/world terraform if it is within your claimed area, unless you are in the resource world. This includes, but is not limited to: digging out chunks to bedrock, destroying fantasy land and randomly placing tons blocks all over the world. Buildings that mimic forbidden or sensitive political symbols, genitalia, or offensive language will be removed from our platforms immediately.
II. Multiple (ALT) Minecraft Accounts
You are NOT allowed to use multiple Minecraft accounts in order to gain an advantage against other players. We will be able to see any ALT accounts. As long as different people are using an account it is 100% okay. Using different accounts with the purpose to duplicate server awards is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to: voting twice, repeating missions that have already been finished, and taking part in "keyalls" or other public events. Using a different Minecraft account to get around staff punishment is strictly forbidden. (Bans, Mutes, etc.) All of the offender's accounts receive server penalties.
III. Scamming/Verbal Agreements
Any attempt to scam a player will not be tolerated. We recommend using the
/tradecommand to combat scams. We also recommend that you take screenshots of the verbal agreement so staff can have visible proof to punish. Only agree with players you trust to avoid scams all together. Abusing land trusts is NOT allowed and can be punished, but be careful who you choose to trust in your land.
IV. Exploits / Bugs / Redstone
Using any Minecraft bugs or exploits will not be tolerated as this can compromise fair gameplay and the servers integrity. Any exploits found within The MCX should be reported and never be abused as it will lead to a permanent ban. Reporting a bug is not considered abused and is actually appreciated. Any sort of excessive redstone machines that affect the servers performance is prohibited. Any sort of redstone contraptions must stay inside of your land claim. You are not allowed to use any redstone dupers or duplicate any item, from TNT to Sand and so on. You are not allowed to make farms that do not require some sort of player interaction for long periods of time, automatic farms that require player presence are allowed.
V. Cheating The use of modified clients, mods, resource packs, scripts that grand an unfair advantage to players is strictly prohibited. You are allowed to use clients that boost performance and minimaps that do not reveal entity or container locations. The use of any macros, or auto clickers is never allowed. This also goes for hotkeys that automate actions.
As some of our earliest members know, we had a lot of issues with lag/TPS drops. Since it had become such a big issue we have decided to add a specific rule/guidebook on what the limitations on the server are. We have also made some limits to other parts of the server to keep it fair for everyone.
I. Entities As entities have caused major problems for this server we have set limits on all types of entities per chunk. This means after a certain amount of entities are in a single chunk, you will no longer be able to add any more unless you remove already added ones. We ask that you spread out entities as best you can to keep the server as stable as possible. Limitations are down below.
• Item Frame, Armour Stand: 10/Chunk
• Hopper: 20/Chunk
• Chest: 40/Chunk
• Mob Spawner Spawns: 2/Chunk
• Hostile Mobs, Passive Mobs: 25/Chunk
• Custom Furniture/Items: 30/Chunk
II. Redstone Limits You may notice that Redstone isn't on the previous list. The way Redstone limits work is by the following explanation. Small clocks will be able to run, but there is a chance in our system for the clock to automatically break. The bigger the contraption, the higher the chance for it to randomly break.
III. Nether We have disabled the Nether roof as we feel that for this SMP it is too over powered. You will not be able to build on top of the nether roof and if you do get up there, you will slowly take damage unless you teleport away. If you die on top of the Nether roof we will not rollback your items unless there are special circumstances.
We now do not allow auto farming on our Survival Server. Any farm that functions autonomously when a player is close enough, the player must be doing something. Using it for AFK purposes is not permitted. For any autonomous farm requiring only player presence to function, farming by means of AFK'ing is no longer permitted. Specifically, the player must be active in the area if they wish for the farm to be producing, clearly indicating that they are actually playing the game and not being present only for the farms to produce. By default, this means that AFK'ing at any autonomous farm until kicked, then rejoining, is not allowed. This was decided because this type of activity consumes server resources and affects the gameplay experience of others online who are actually active and trying to play.
Creating multiple farms over a small area, commonly said as being "stacked" on one another are not allowed. This goes for any farms, whether it may be iron farms, crop farms, or spawner farms. These must be spread out among the world as to firstly, not cause lag, and secondly, not give unfair advantages (gaining a lot from doing little).
We very much appreciate and encourage you to report any player violating the rules by creating a ticket so that everyone stays safe and happy.
Any and all rules are subject to change as we develop and introduce new features to our platforms. Please keep up with any changes here, we will notify everyone if and when those changes occur. Any form of "I didn't read the rules, I didn't know" will not be exempt from punishment.
