Rules

Hello and welcome!
Moderators reserve the right to handle situations at their own discretion, and higher staff can increase punishment based on the severity of the incident.
If you have an issue, please appeal on the forums/discord respectfully! Please do not use player reporting or the ban appeal application to troll.

This will get you a warning or temp ban depending on the severity. The ban list is used for educational purposes, also to scare you into never breaking the rules! 
Please read all the rules and use common sense while on the server or Discord, serious bans are discussed amongst staff before considering letting the player back.

Give us time to process first! Play fairly and there will be no trouble. 

Happy playing! From the staff team at Dxrery Networks.
Welcome to Dxrery's rules page!
Click on the tabs above to see the different sections of the rules.

Please keep in mind the punishment guidelines for everything are not always exactly followed by our staff. Punishments can depend on the severity and sometimes immediate permanent bans happen instead of going through the entire punishment guidelines. If you believe you were punished unfairly, please create a punishment appeal ticket on our Discord here.

Cheating

Modified Clients


Modified clients that give you an advantage over other players are not allowed. If you have to ask, it is probably not allowed.
Examples of unallowed clients: x-ray, hacked clients, etc.
Examples of allowed clients: minimap (surface only), badlion, etc.


Exploiting

Taking advantage of things that are the result of an unintended bug in the server or Minecraft itself is not allowed.
This includes taking advantage of dupes, creating lag machines, or otherwise anything that does not seem like it fits within the integrity of the game/server.
Reporting exploits to the staff will result in no punishment and potentially a reward.


Player Interaction Automation

Using software to automate interactions is not allowed. You cannot use auto clickers, anti-AFK scripts, or other various methods to automate your physical interactions on the server. Taping down a mouse falls under this. If you are not at your computer physically doing your actions, you will be punished.

Real World Trading

Exchanging anything related to or on the server for real-life currency/items/services is not allowed.

Chat Behavior

Language


All global channels that all players can see are English-only. This excludes /msg and /partychat.

Spam

Sending messages repeatedly to the chat to degrade the experience of other players is not allowed. This can include sending gibberish and other intentionally annoying messages that will disrupt the flow of chat.

Impersonation

Changing your nickname to impersonate other players is not allowed.

Appealing/Discussing Punishments

You must appeal punishments in the appropriate channel on Discord. Messaging staff members or discussing with other players in global chat will result in your punishment being extended. Harassing staff members over another player's punishment will result in you being punished as well.

Toxicity/Inappropriate Behavior

This is a family-friendly server. That being said, we have some restrictions on what you are allowed to do in chat in order to keep it a friendly place for everyone. Please try to be a decent person in chat and refrain from being excessively and repeatedly toxic, trolling, and being excessively inappropriate on the server. The following are specifically not allowed:

 
  • Excessive disruption of chat
  • Extremely offensive content
  • Illegal behavior
  • Excessive & continual harassment
  • Sexual/inappropriate messages directed at other players
  • Extremely graphic images/NSFW images or the description of them
  • Using all caps to significantly disrupt chat
  • IRL threats
  • Suicide jokes
  • Heated arguments
  • Racial/Offensive slurs

If someone wants you to stop harassing them, stop. Generally, staff will remind you before punishing you, but if your content is severe enough you may be punished immediately. If you have been told to take a conversation to private messages or town/nation/local chat, please do so. Some things may not be explicitly against the rules but are in the best interest of the server to keep out of global chat. If you have an issue with another player or a discussion, please use /ignore [player] or /leave global

Trolling

Trolling is the deliberate act of making unsolicited or controversial comments with the intent to provoke a reaction from other players. Trolling and showing a lack of intent to play on our server is not allowed.

» Punishments for Chat Behavior
  • 1st Offense: Warning
  • 2nd Offense: 10 Minute Mute - 1 Hour Mute
  • 3rd Offense: 1 Hour Mute - 1 Day Mute
  • 4th Offense: 1 Day Mute - 1 Week Mute

In-Game Behavior

Scamming


Scamming of any kind is not allowed. Be honest and do not try to take advantage of others.
However:
If you choose to gamble at a casino, we are not going to enforce whether it is fair or not. We do not condone gambling and if you lose all of your money we will not intervene.
If you set your shop prices incorrectly where you buy an item for more than the selling price, you are responsible for this. We will not refund you if someone takes advantage of your mistakes in your shop. Please be very careful when setting up a buy/sell shop.
Alternate Accounts

You are limited to five accounts per person. Account sharing is allowed, this is to allow family and friends in one home to play together.
If there are more than five people, please notify the staff immediately so we do not mistake you for an alternate account or bots. If you create alt accounts for the purpose of AFK or trolling, you will be punished.


AFK Avoidance

You are not allowed to create AFK pools, or use other automated systems (or software) to prevent yourself from being marked as AFK or kicked for being AFK for too long.

» Punishments for In-Game Behavior
  • 1st Offense: Warning
  • 2nd Offense: 1 Day Ban
  • 3rd Offense: 7 Day Ban
  • 4th Offense: Permanent Ban

Griefing

Stealing/Raiding/Griefing


Stealing/raiding/griefing are not allowed in claimed areas. You may not steal/raid/grief regular towns or ruined towns. The Wilderness is fair game, so claim your stuff, towns are cheap to start! Toxicity is still not allowed, so do not try to blow up the land near a town just to be a jerk. It will be treated as griefing.
It takes us less time to catch, punish you, and rollback everything than for you to grief/steal/raid another player. You are not allowed to raid ruined towns.


Claim Blocking

You are not allowed to claim land near another town to intentionally prevent them from being able to expand their town. You may claim or build near other towns but only if you are actively using that land.

Modifying Land Around Towns

Modifying the land around a town to intentionally make the landscape ugly is not allowed.

Miscellaneous

30 Day Rule

If a player has not been online for 30 days, their items, their buildings, etc. are no longer considered owned and may be taken down or their items taken.
Check with a staff member to see if a player has not been online for 30 days.


Helping Others Break Rules

Helping others break rules will result in you receiving the same punishment. This includes encouraging them to break the rules, breaking the rules along with them, or giving them information that would directly lead to them being able to break the rules.

Mayors Kicking Residents

Mayors are allowed to kick residents from their town for any reason. However, they must return that player's possessions if requested by the player and allow them enough time to move. The resident who was kicked must be able to get their stuff back.

Sharing Personal Information

Sharing the personal information of another player without their explicit consent is not allowed. You must get their consent in writing before doing so.

» Punishments for Sharing Personal Information
  • 1st Offense: 1 Week Mute

Punishment Evasion

Evading your punishment through the use of other players, signs to bypass mutes, and other methods will result in your punishment being drastically increased.

Advertising

Advertising anything that is not directly related to the server is not allowed. This includes advertising rival servers, websites, or inappropriate websites.
You are allowed to post links that are appropriate, do not break any other rules, and will not bring any harm to the server or the player clicking on it.
