3rd Degree Chat Offenses: (3 warnings for the same type of offense equates a 6 month mute, anything after that is a permamute.)
- Treat each other with respect. This means no needless insults, bullying, sexist remarks or discriminatory messages at all. Posts meant to generate an inflammatory response from another user will be considered trolling and also not allowed under this rule.
- No cursing (damn, ass, fuck, bastard, bitch) or offensive language. This is a very subjective rule. In short, if a mod asks you to avoid a certain word or phrase...do it. This applies to IGN’s & when quoting others.
- No spamming. Watch the CAPS, typing the same thing multiple times, and lots of pointless chat.
1st Degree Chat Offenses: (1 strike for any of these offenses equates a 6 month mute, anything after that is a permamute.)
- No racism.
- Keep comments age appropriate. Meaning no sexually oriented content is allowed.
- No advertising.
- This includes links to websites, Ip’s & mentioning the names of the networks/servers. Scottland Studios links are exempt from this rule. Mods are not required to click links to find out where they go, and will ban any & all players posting links in game.
- Do not impersonate any member of Scottland Studios' staff or claim to be a member of the Staff.
3rd Degree Game Offenses: (3 warnings for the same type of offense equates a 6 month ban, and anything after that is a permaban.)
- No nude, offensive or otherwise inappropriate skin.
- No combat logging. This is when someone relogs mid fight, to avoid fall damage, or to avoid explosion damage.
- Do not encourage anyone else to break any of the forum/game rules.
- Do not argue with the mods. If you feel you have been wronged or mistreated by a staff member report them in the forum or message a MGM.
1st Degree Game Offenses: (1 strike for any of these offenses equates a 6 month ban, and anything after that is a permaban.)
- No unapproved mods. All mods other than Optifine are unapproved. Changes to your Minecraft client files to replicate the actions of any of these mods is also reason for a ban.
- Don’t joke about hacking. If you say you are using hacks...we’ll take your word for it.
- Do not abuse or exploit any component of the service other than intended, for unfair game play, including kits, special abilities (such as spectating & commands), bugs or in game glitches.
Other Game Rules:
- Chat rules apply to whisphers as well.
- DDOS gets any & all your known accounts permabanned.
- Ban evasion is not permitted, and will result in a permanent ban for all alternate accounts associated with the evading player. The alternate accounts will not be unbanned once the original ban expired, and the original ban starts over from the point the alts were discovered. So if you had 3 months left on a 1 year ban...you start that year ban all over again. If you get your Minecraft account banned...it means we don’t want you here for awhile...with any account.
- Testimony IS evidence. Your words in game can be used against you & depending on the rule violation are enough evidence for a mute/ban.
- Any breach made by a family member, friend, or random stranger is on you. If a rule is broken under an account, that account will be punished.
- GM’s are allowed to temp mute players & kick them when they give their warnings.
- Bans & mutes are global. Meaning if you get banned for something you did while playing Batknight, it means you are banned from all Scottland Studios games & servers.
- All bans must be appealed before they can be overturned. So a 6 month ban could end up being longer. It just depends on if you appeal right after the 6 month time period is up or not.
- Scottland Studios' Administration reserves the right to ban any player from any Scottland Studio service for any reason without notice. Even for actions on other servers.
