This thread gives more in-depth information about our rules in-game and our punishments such as the warning system.
Warnings expire 30 days after they have been issued.
First Warning: No mute. Don't break the rules again.
Second Warning: 5 minute mute.
Third Warning: 10 minute mute.
Fourth Warning: 30 minute mute.
Fifth Warning: 60 minute mute.
Sixth Warning: 1 day mute.
Seventh Warning: 7 day mute.
Eighth Warning: Permanent Mute.
These offenses follow the warning system. The consequence of the offense depends on the number of warnings a user has.
1.) Be respectful to all members and staff.
Simply be respectful to everyone. Treat everyone like how you want to be treated. It's as simple as that! This rule also falls into bullying.
2.) No swearing or bypassing the chat filter.
We are child-friendly so chat must be kept appropriate to all ages. Bypassing the chat filter means trying to get around saying blocked words blocked by the server. This rule also goes under Toxicity.
3.) Follow instructions set by staff.
If a staff member tells you to stop spamming, then stop spamming. If a staff member tells you to keep it child-friendly, then you keep it child-friendly. If a staff member tells you to do something ridiculous (eg. buy them a rank, break rules, etc), then you don't need to do so.
4.) No spamming or chat-flooding.
Spamming is saying the same thing over and over again in chat. This applies to all forms of message flooding.
5.) No drama into global chats.
AscensionMC is no place for drama. Bring any real-life drama here, you may be warned or muted depending on the severity of the drama. We ain't Keemstar so take your drama elsewhere.
6.) No backseat moderating.
Backseat moderating is enforcing the server rules verbally. We have staff members for a reason. Let our mods do their job.
7.) Religion and Politics are not allowed to be talked about on here.
Please keep any religion and politic talk outside the server. Discussion about any of those things may result in arguments to be caused. You may be verbally warned the first time, then a /warn if continued.
8.) Do not give out personal information except for your first name only, your age or country/state/province.
Please keep any private detail to yourself or those you trust. This is an online safety rule to always consider. This rule also applies to those who expose someone else's personal information without their consent. Users will be given a warning for this offense.
These offenses will result in a mute instead of a /warn.
1.) No racism, sexism, discrimination, or homophobia.
Any racism, sexism, discrimination, or homophobia can carry a one week mute.
2.) No self-promotion (eg. Minecraft Server/Realm advertisement, YouTube channel/video advertisement, Twitch streams, etc).
Advertising your Minecraft server/realm, youtube channel/videos, twitch streams, etc, is not allowed. If you have the Youtube rank, you have permission to advertise ONLY your channel name! Mentioning server names will result in a verbal warning. If continued, then a permanent mute may be issued. Any other advertisement may result in an immediate mute or ban.
These offenses will result in a ban.
1.) No inappropriate usernames or skins.
Depending on the skin and/or username, the user may be permanently banned for having an inappropriate skin or username. If you're unsure what's inappropriate and what's not, ask a staff member.
2.) No ban bypassing. This includes bypassing mutes and warns.
If you are caught trying to bypass your ban, you'll be IP-banned. If you are caught trying to bypass your warning, you'll be muted. Trying to bypass your mute will result in a longer mute.
3.) Hacked clients or illegal modifications are prohibited. No exceptions.
Any hacks are not allowed. Period. No-fly, knockback, kill-aura, none of that! Depending on the hacks, you may be permanently banned.
4.) Exploit abuse is not allowed.
This means if you know or find out about an exploit that's on the server and use it, you will be issued a temp or perm ban depending on the exploit. This also goes for sharing exploits to other players too. If you see an exploit, report it to a staff member! Don't take advantage of it!
Please use common sense. Not every rule is documented. If you don't know what you're doing is wrong or not, don't do it or ask a staff member.
