Preface: In terms of rules, I would love to think we’re pretty relaxed about what is expected, but of course there will always be those who want to see chaos in a server. So here we are with the rules. If you have a question about them at any point, please talk with a staff quietly about it. If you break the rules while asking, in a public chat, you can/will be at fault.
All of the staff team, are helping because they want to, they are a volunteer service that want to make the community better. As such they assist any and ally players that need assistance in game or on discord. If you are found to request for help from a staff member, and then kill them, trap them ETC. You will be punished. If you ask for them to teleport without any mention of needing assistance, it is free range. If a staff member asks you a question, you are expected to answer truthfully. You are always allowed to request help at any point. If you think a staff isn’t doing their duties, you can report them on discord through the ticket system with sufficient evidence.
Harassment is very rare, as players will generally be toxic towards each other, but if you are found to be constantly trash talking a player, without general reason, it can/will be handled as harassment, and punished as such. It never hurts to be nice to people, you should give it a try!
Anything said that suggests harming or hindering someone or their friends/family/dog etc. is not allowed. Do not threaten players apart from stuff in game. Even then be sure to keep all other rules. (With this we mean you can threaten you will raid them but don't threaten to bug into their base etc.) Don't tell someone to die even if you mean in game, this will often be taken the wrong way.
Personal information is well... personal. And it should stay that way. Don't release anyone's personal information from their name to their house address. Giving through what they themselves have said is fine but if they decide they don't want that information shared you're punishable. Releasing stuff like IP, Address, Full names etc. can lead to higher tiers of punishments.
Public chat is for everyone and not just you and your friend. Any spamming or excessive usage of CAPITAL letters will be punished. This includes iteming your whole set in the chat with [item] Please try to not send more than 3 messages after each other in chat without anyone else speaking in between.
Advertising another server or service (through IP Address, Links, Discord invites etc.) in chat will result in a ban. We will not look into if this is an actual working server and please don't joke about "Hey everyone come play on play.prismforge.com" because everyone here really doesn't need to be caught up in your joke.
NOTE: If the rule breaker is obviously trying to make people play on another server or obviously not a regular player of PrismForge (say they're below level 5 etc.) we will immediately go to a permanent ban.
Abuse of bugs/glitches/exploits:
Abuse of anything that's clearly not intended to be a thing (we assume you can figure this out with common sense) will result in us taking action. Before recreating any bugs please contact a staff member about it to ask for permission (if this is not granted obviously don't do it). If you're granted permission this is for the reason of finding the cause and helping our staff fix it. Any abuse of the glitch will result in a ban. So do not keep any glitched items etc. after testing it for us. Possession of any clearly glitched items may result in a ban as well.
Any user with a name or skin that clearly isn't something we would promote will be perm banned till this is changed. This is however stated as a tier two offense as we don't think it's worth posting this as tier 3.
Not to be confused with advertising servers or services this is about trading. We can't guarantee your goods whenever trading your gear for an itunes card. Therefor we ask of you do attempt these trades. Any items lost in such a trade will not be recovered and no compensation will be given. We will however ban the users who complete these deals.
We are pretty relaxed about this, however sexual conversation is strictly prohibited. As well as discrimination based off of race, religion etc.
“You dirty nigger” “Gas the jews.” “Fucking faggot” is all prohibited. If you have questions regarding this, make a ticket, if you ask in chat with phrases that are considered inappropriate, will get you punished.
NOTE: We have a /chat filter plugin that censors everything you may not like. Use it as much as you’d like!
Chargeback / Refunds:
Any attempt to refund your money after buying something of our store will result in an immediate removal of the rank/item. Buying on someone else their name then charging back will result in an immediate perm ban for the buyer.
NOTE: If you have an issue with a purchase, whatever it may be, make a ticket on our discord. DO NOT CHARGEBACK
As said below, links are not allowed if not of videos of PrismForge. If you are found to be posting video links that IP Grab, or download unwanted programs, it can/will result in permanent ban.
Links in chat aren’t allowed. Only exceptions is to a livestream, and/or a video that is of PrismForge. Anyone is allowed to advertise their content if its related to the server. However we ask that you do not spam the chat, and keep to the rules in regards to it.
Dos/DDos or Denial of service. Not only is it ILLEGAL it is strictly prohibited on our server. Threats or the action as such, there is a strict 0 tolerance for such actions, which can/will lead to a permanent ban from our network.
Scamming IRL money
Much like Ddosing, it is illegal to scam someone IRL Money. Not only that, but it makes you a massive prick. Doing such can/will get you banned from the server. So be nice when it comes to IRL money!
NOTE: Scamming items that were purchased from the buycraft, is not the same as an IRL Scam. Unless the buyer bought the package on/for someone else’s account, it is not accepted as an IRL Deal/Scam. Contact Staff if you have any questions.
Yes, we do Screen Share when we suspect you of hacking.
There are 3 different punishments when a staff member requests to ScreenShare
If you admit to hacking = 3 Day Ban
Comply With ScreenShare, But hacks are found = 5 Day ban
Refuse to Screenshare/Log out = 9 Day Ban
Comply with ScreenShare, but with no hacks found = Nothing!
Of course, if you are banned for hacks, you get your money, level, prestige, and items reset (pv’s, enderchest, inventory) Any attempt to hide your items can result in an 18 Day Ban.
During Screenshare procedure, we will request that you download and install https://www.anydesk.com/en/downloads it a safe program to use.
You will be requested to send your 9 digit number to the staff member, and they will conduct the screenshare. If you do not wish to be screenshared by that specific staff member, you can request a higher ranking official, no one of the same rank. However if no staff are present, continue the screenshare until you feel uncomfortable, be sure to record everything. If you have to get banned, take the ban. Submit the recording in full to an Admin+ Later.
Although this should mostly be common sense here is a quick rundown anyway. This post is regarding ban, mute and other punishment evasions. In every case evasion will lead to your current punishment becoming refreshed and unappealable and possibly lengthened (depending on severity). In no case should you evade. If you're not agreeing with the punishment you've been given DO NOT go on an alt to tell us about how you feel cheated. Please DON'T... (thanks) If this for whatever reason seems to be the case create a ticket in our discord. Any evasion will be seen as evasion even if it's you saying your mute is not right
Definition of Evasion:
Incase of a ban
For a player to join our server or other services while one or more accounts under their ownership are banned for any reason. Ownership is determined by the IP-Address or any noticeable connections such as matching usernames please do not use VPNs as these might lead to a ban-evasion ban.
Incase of a mute
For a player to talk or communicate with other players while one or more accounts under their ownership are muted for any reason. Ownership is determined by the IP-Address or any noticeable connections such as matching usernames. So again please do not use VPNs as you might get a mute for it.
NOTE: You're allowed to play on alts while muted but just don't talk when one or multiple accounts on your IP Address or of similar naming are muted.
Our server is very unique due to our RPG factors. One of our big features is the leveling system. We do not tolerate ANY cheating in this. If you're caught grinding levels while not personally doing so you will be banned and your progress will be reset completely. This includes any useage of autoclickers. Please make sure you can reply to our staff team if they confront you about this. This can be in the form of us moving you, Breaking blocks, Hitting you or simply MSGing you, You're expected to reply to staff in these cases. Failure to reply in any way (moving, msging back, stopping with grinding etc.) will result in a punishment.
