Minefrost Network Rules
These rules are subject to change without notice.
You can only fill an appeal for mutes over 1 day and bans over 3 days, if it's less, you will need to wait it out. If you get banned or muted, appeal here.
Respect all players:
Please be respectful and kind to others. This goes to forums as well; do not write things that will be considered rude, that may hurt someone’s feelings in the end. We also do not allow, in any circumstances:
Discrimination against religion
Any kind of Discrimination
Respect all staff:
Please do not argue with a judgement by one of our staff members. If you have a problem with one of our staff and you feel they are abusing you/others, report it on the forums, don’t start arguments in public nor harass members of the staff team to try to prove a point.
These rules will be enforced and failure to comply will result in a tempban.
Trolling & Harassment
Trolling can be anything from silly messages, to jokes taken wrongly, to harassment. Trolling between friends, in which both (or more) parties are cool with it, is allowed. Trolling with the intent of grief or offense, on the other hand, is forbidden.
Harassment is also not allowed. Harassment is:
Any rude, offensive, or inappropriate comments at somebody
Constantly bothering someone who has expressed a wish to be left alone
Deliberately causing unnecessary drama for somebody
Threatening other players with e.g. ddos, dox, swatting. These cases are treated with extra severity, regardless if it is said sarcastically or as a joke
Failure to follow these rules will result in either a kick, mute, or even tempban.
Profanity & Inappropriate Content
Excessive use of profanity is punishable.
Use of the derogatory terms are forbidden.
Failure to follow these rules will result in a kick, mute, or even tempban if abused.
Following from the Profanity and Inappropriate section above, this does apply as well to IGNs on the Server AND Forums.
Some obvious examples of Inappropriate IGNs would include these words (Although, context matters, just because it has the word, for example, f*ck, doesn't mean it is bannable):
N*gger (and N*gga)
If you see a name that seems suspicious and isn't on this list, please contact a member of Staff. Anyone with an inappropriate name will be permanently banned from the server until the name is changed (After the name is changed, you may request an unban at our Ban Appeal section).
Trying to Mod (aka Mini-Modding)
Don't try to do the job of staff members, if someone is breaking the rules please record evidence and report the player.
Making someone aware of the rules is allowed, but don't overdo it.
Spam is not allowed at all. This means:
Sending the same message over repeatedly in a short time
Using fancy letters to get your message noticed
Example: “<*>*<*> IM AMAZING <*>*<*>”, “#$#$# SAY HI TO ME #$#$#”, or "L()()K --------->".
Using a form of caps protection bypass is not allowed, as it bybasses the “restricted caps” rule and you will be warned for it on the spot if the intention is clear.
Example: “WILLY IS COOL (caps protection)”.
It is counted as spam, and is a reportable and punishable offence.
Spamming reports, with the clear intention to provoke staff members, is also not allowed. These type of provokations will be handled accordingly to the severity of that specific case.
Encouraging spam is also not allowed. That being said, saying things like, “say _ if _” are forbidden, and players who do this will be warned.
Examples: “Say ‘I’ if you live in the USA” or “ OMG!! ASFJerome is online in BuildIt!!!”
Doing any form of instigation, with successful results, will get you warned for spamming, and can result in a temporary mute or ban.
Advertising server IPs are not allowed, no exceptions. Links of any kind are also not allowed, with only these exceptions:
A thread from the Minefrost forums
A YouTube video that was made on the Minefrost server or a twitch link where you are streaming on the Minefrost server (We do check and will suitably punish accordingly)
A Livestream link (providing you're streaming on our server) - A suitable countdown for this would be at least every 5-10 minutes
However, spamming these links could be taken as spamming and warned just the same.
Anything that isn't included in these 3 examples above can be sent over PM. However please make sure you do NOT click anything you are unsure of. There is an announcement on the server that appears each time a link is sent in PM. This is for a reason.
Spambots are special cases, in which an individual may get dozens if not hundreds of accounts to spam our chats to advertise things. Once these accounts are reported/caught, they will be permanently banned. If for some reason an individual decides to copy what the Spambot says and ends up being banned, they may make a ban appeal, which will lead to their unban more certainly.
Performing any of the following with an alternative account is NOT allowed (in our network):
Using an alternative account to bypass a ban/mute on your main account
Using it for personal or other account advantages
Creating a troll alternative account
Attempting to harass someone anonymously
If for any reason any of the above is broken by an alt account, both the main and alt account(s) are held accountable for it, and will result, like explained previously, in banning the accounts for the original ban length. Or on more extreme cases, in an extension of the ban.
Quite simple, do not impersonate a player that has an existing account.
If you impersonate staff, well known YouTubers, or other members of the community, you will face consequences.
If you take someones recently unused name, that will not be considered impersonation. Yet, if you act like that and pretend to be them, then that is against our rules.
The command /nick should be used for just nicknames, fun names or appropriate subjects, not something that can be displayed as an impersonation or inappropriate.
Impersonation is fine in a joking and friendly manner, but only when the person being impersonated is okay with the situation.
Auction House Listings
The auction house is a convenience for players to sell items to other players.
The auction house is NOT a place to dump trash items. We have /trash for that.
Selling items with outrageous prices is not allowed.
No we will not give you a hard line of what is considered outrageous. Use that noggin of yours and common sense. I know, it's hard, but we believe in you.
The auction house is not an advertising board. Items placed that advertise anything is not allowed.
If for any reason the above is not followed the player will get the following actions:
1st offense: warning
2nd offense: 1 day ban
3rd offense: 3 day ban
4th offense: 1 week ban
5th offense: permanent ban
Selling & Giveaways
You are allowed to host giveaways and contests with prizes on the Server/Forums/Discord, but it must be limited to our network.
Scamming, making fake giveaways and contests for personal gain will not be allowed and you will be punished if you do so.
We do not condone real world trading. Do not sell in-game items or other virtual items for real world money.
Selling Minecraft/Network accounts is forbidden.
Caution: Careful who you accept gifts from, some have been known to use this to blackmail. While this blackmail is not allowed, you should still be careful.
Scamming is when a player steals your in-game money by not keeping their part of a deal. An example would be saying that you’re selling 64 diamond blocks for $1,000,000, but after they pay you the money, you don’t give your part of the deal; therefore, stealing their money. When reporting a scam, the evidence must include the entire conversation between you and the scammer, or action will not be taken.
Scamming real life money may be worthy of a permanent ban. If a player is not scammed real life money, even if it was part of some sort of deal, the ban will be of the regular scamming length.
Scams must involve an exchange of in-game items or currency, or real life money in order to be punished by a staff member. Any other type of informal agreements are own responsibility, as there is no way for staff members to handle these type of deals.
PVP bypassing is when players kill other players with water, lava, flint and steel, and other ways in areas where PVP is not enabled.
When reporting a bypasser, make sure to include either:
A video, showing the PVP bypass as it is happening
Screenshots that have enough proof (things such as screenshots of their IGN, server, etc)
Abusing any bugs, glitches, and/or exploits is not allowed.
All bugs, glitches, and exploits are to be reported in the "Report Bugs" section of the forums as soon as possible.
Use of any client modifications that alter gameplay or give a significant advantage are strictly prohibited.
Approved modifications and client behaviors include:
InGame Info mod
LabyMod (1.7 animations, damage indicators and minimap radar must be disabled)
Any hacked modified client behavior that gives an unfair advantage is not allowed. Macros that affect gameplay like auto-clicking are not allowed.
Blacklisted modifications include:
Any hacking client (e.g. Kill aura, regeneration, aimbot, anti-knockback)
Any mod that lets you perform movements not possible in vanilla Minecraft (e.g. Smart Moving Mod)
VoxelMap (minimap shows other players even when not in sight)
RadarBro (minimap shows other players even when not in sight)
BetterPVP (minimap shows other players even when not in sight)
Damage Indicators (shows other players' health which is not possible in Vanilla Minecraft)
Orange's 1.7 Animations
Old Animations Mod
Schematica ("printer" feature)
WorldDownloader (Can be used for x-raying)
Skull Project Mod (1.7 animations and smooth blockhitting)
CosmicClient (1.7 animations)
If you have a mod that is not listed here and you're unsure about it, contact a staff member.
Griefing is not allowed in any of our servers. Griefing will result in a temporary or permanent ban from the server.
We encourage the use of redstone as long as it is server friendly.
No rapid redstone pulses (including inverted comparators).
No rapid 0-tick machines/farms.
Lag Machines can damage the server's performance if they are extremely large. This brings a danger to players that go near it as it can not only crash or freeze their game, but can freeze their computer.
Staff can modify any lag inducing redstone/machinery without any notice. The server's health and other players enjoyment of the server trump your desire for a 'big' farm/machine.
We appreciate our donors, however the perks and items that come with donations are not to be shared.
Do not share donor items with other players.
Do not use donor commands for other players.
