Global​

This section will explain all the rules and regulations that apply to every aspect of the server. Violating any of these rules is NOT allowed anywhere on our server, our forums, or our Discord. The rules stated here are subject to change, and more rules can and will be added should they become necessary. The administration reserves the right to change the rules with or without warning. Ban lengths will be under the discretion of the staff. Fines may occur in the form of money wipes and/or item confiscation depending on the severity of the offense. MuddCraft staff reserves the right to punish a player for any reason we deem appropriate, and rules will be enforced based on the spirit, not the letter of them. Admitting to breaking any of the following rules may result in the corresponding punishment, regardless of if proof of the broken rule is recorded.

By joining the MuddCraft Servers, accessing the MuddCraft Forum, accessing the Discord Server Channels, you agree to abide by these rules and follow staff requests.

Any attempt to deceive a player through chest-shops, including the use of hidden chest-shop signs (usually backwards). The use of hexidecimal values is also prohibited. Also included is the use of decimals in attempt to disguise the price, this will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
Using a Alternate account to gain advantage over another person is prohibitted. Whether this is paying your alt, completing parkour, quests, voting and giving a main the money, plus many more is completely prohibited and will result in a perm ban and wipe.
Taking advantage of other people’s shops. Example: making copies of books or other items to replicate an item to sell in a chest shop, making someone broke because of their mistake (spelling, integer amount, etc.). Other people’s “mistakes” will be defined by a staff member if needed.
Rank scamming is strictly forbidden, and if caught will result in a Permanent Ban

Using any kind of deception in order to kill a player
Using any kind of deception in order to hurt a player or gain from a player is prohibited
Gaining access to an account using deception is prohibited

3. Hacking/Cheating

The use of any hack, modification, glitch, or texture pack to give yourself an unfair advantage falls under this category. Suspicion of use of a hacked client is sufficient enough to ban. The things that violate this rule are, but not limited to:
A modified Minecraft client
Any Full-Bright modification
Any X-Ray related mod/texture pack/glitch
Any form of speed hacks
Any form of PVP hacks
Any form of duplication, or “duping”
Any form of parkour hacks
Using any glitch that gives you an unfair advantage, or being warped somewhere that requires you to use a glitch
Altering the Gamma of your client to simulate the effects of a full-bright modification (Donors with a full-bright perk are an exception to this rule)
Macros, autoclickers, or devices set up to simulate either autoclicker or macro
Possession of illegitimate items
AFK machines are not allowed. Smelters and potion machines are acceptable, but any AFK machines that yield and advantage over other players for doing nothing is not allowed

If you are unsure about a certain modification, ask a staff member before proceeding. Investigating acceptable mods is an ongoing process. Disclosing any information to another player about how to hack/cheat is also considered illegal as well as speaking about hacking/duping casually as if it’s acceptable.

4. Alternate Accounts

Usage of alternate Minecraft accounts is allowed. However, it must follow the following restrictions:
None of your alternate accounts are banned (Inappropriate names and/or staff impersonation bans do not apply to this rule)

You may not transfer Muddbucks between accounts through any means; including banks, gold blocks, and any other means earned in account based activities.
You may not kill alternate accounts in minigames and PvP arenas to generate Muddbucks. This rule applies to friends who allow you to kill them.

5. Acts Against the Server, and the Owner

Any action or conduct that threatens the server, and/or the owner in any way. It includes but is not limited to:
Impersonating a staff member
Using usernames similar in nature to a staff member's username or a staff member's rank
Threats to the server or staff
Lagging/Crashing the server with items
Charging back a donation
Advertising any other Minecraft server (An IP does not have to be included)
Toxicity
This rule does not prohibit people from expressing this displeasure, but tries to outline the manner in which a player should do so. This means, if you are unhappy with something, you’re welcome to post on the forums, or anywhere else detailing why you are unhappy with a certain aspect in a respectful way. However, some players are not satisfied with this outlet, and begin to become a thorn in the server’s proverbial side. If it is found that the majority of a player's interactions are negative ones against the server, staff, or any player in general, if that player continuously attempts to push the boundaries of the rules for the sake of pushing them, or in general attempts to degrade the enjoyment of the server for others in a continuous manner, this player can and will be considered toxic.
Note: All minigame specific rules will be listed in the minigame lobby.

Forums

All the rules stated in the MuddCraft Global Rules still apply to the Forums. Violating any rules stated above or listed below through any means will result in a warning points, initiated through conversation by a staff member.

Depending on the number of warning points you have accumulated, a tempban (or permanent ban after accumulating enough points) will occur automatically.

Conclusion:

If you feel you have been wrongly banned, feel free to file a ban appeal where a staff member other than the one who banned you will review the case.

If you see anyone committing any violation of any rule, please take necessary screenshots and post under Report a Player or file a /modreq in game.

If you are banned, you may not use any alternate account to get around a ban. Forum ban appeals can be appealed using the form.

MuddCraft Staff reserves the right to use good judgement for punishments and ban lengths, along with combined infractions. Lying to a staff member will also result in a harsher punishment.

This rules list cannot possibly hope to cover all instances of behavior that is detrimental to the servers or community, thus the MuddCraft Staff reserves the right to warn, kick, or ban players deemed to be detrimental as well as the right to form new rules when needed. Admins also reserve the right to reset player data as needed. ​
