The following rules apply to the RebootMC Server, Discord, and Forums The following rules apply to the RebootMC Server, Discord, and Forums. All rules apply to any RebootMC chat systems including (but not limited to) private messaging and faction chat. All users are to read and comply with these guidelines to ensure that all players feel safe and comfortable in this community. Using an alternate account to avoid punishment such as a mute or ban is prohibited on RebootMC. If caught doing this, the existing ban/mute will be extended and the alternate account will be banned. Respect All Staff Members All decisions made by RebootMC Staff are final. If a player feels they have been treated unfairly, they are able to contact the administration team on the forums or message them privately. RebootMC reserves the right to remove or lock threads of which the purpose is to publicly complain, shame, or rage about RebootMC Staff. These issues should be dealt with in private with the administration team. Account Security and Sharing RebootMC players are responsible for the security of their own Minecraft and RebootMC website accounts. If another user gains access to a players account, the player is still responsible for the account. It is the player’s responsibility to ensure that their passwords are secure and kept private. RebootMC does not allow the sharing of Minecraft accounts on the server. If a player is one of multiple players that use a single account and they break a rule, the consequence will remain on the account regardless of any claims that it was another player. If a player is believed to be using multiple accounts to evade consequences, said consequences will be carried over to the other accounts. Advertising is not Permitted Advertising other servers on RebootMC or forums will result in a ban from the server and/or forums. This includes sharing an IP or website/domain (other than that of RebootMC) in public chat, messaging system, pet names, etc.. Advertising faction names, promoting a faction, and inviting players to join a faction is permitted. However, if these requests are deemed as repetitive or spam, the perpetrator will be muted. Buying and Selling Minecraft Accounts If a player has bought a Minecraft account from another person and find that it is banned from the server, RebootMC accepts no responsibility to lift the ban. Once penalised, the consequence stays with the account. To protect the users of this server, RebootMC does NOT allow the sale (or advertising of) Minecraft accounts on RebootMC or Forums. Selling Minecraft accounts is a commonly used avenue for scammers. Disallowing these sales helps protect the users of RebootMC Do not Impersonate or “Pretend to be Someone” RebootMC does now allow Impersonations on any platform. Impersonation of any kind, whether it be a YouTuber or staff member, will result in consequences. If a player witnesses another player impersonating someone else, they are encouraged to contact a member of the RebootMC staff team as soon as possible. You can recognise staff members by looking at their tags: Vice Moderators will have the light red [VM] prefix, Moderators will have the light red [M] prefix, Administrators will have a dark red [A] prefix. Developers will have an aqua [D] prefix. Owners will have a dark red [O] prefix. Inappropriate Language and Content is Forbidden RebootMC aims to be a welcoming community so please be mindful when speaking to others. Though banter between players and factions is allowed, RebootMC requires respect between players and staff. Posting links or pictures including inappropriate content on any RebootMC platform is prohibited. Using a language other than English on RebootMC is prohibited. Illegal Threats Are Not Permitted Any threats or actions that lead to, include, or promote illegal activities are not permitted. This may include (but is not limited to) DDoSing, doxing, threats to DDoS, and/or Swatting, etc. Threats and actions that do not directly refer to illegal activities are still considered an offense. "Toaster frying" threats will be taken seriously. In-Game Scamming is Permitted Scamming is permitted on the server, however, players misrepresenting items for sale in the Trash and Treasure will not be tolerated. This includes renaming items as if they are something they are not (such as iron golem spawners, custom enchant books and the like). If this occurs, the item will be removed and action will be taken. Insiding a faction is not considered scamming. Be wise about who you team with! Furthermore, TP/TPA Killing and Traps are allowed. However, traps that remove a players ability to /spawn or /home will result in removal from the server without warning. Examples of bannable traps are those that would render the player completely unable to play (i.e. if the trapper were to log off the player would be stuck there indefinitely). If a player chooses to enter a dangerous area they do so at their own risk. Please be advised that coaxing a staff member into a trap or killing them through ways such as asking them to teleport to witness a hacker or to fix an issue is also an offense. Real Money Scamming / Chargebacks Scamming someone out of real money will result in permanent removal from the server. Chargebacks will also result in permanent removal from the server. If players have an issue with not receiving the correct purchase, this should be taken up with RebootMC staff directly. Purchasing ranks for another player other than yourself or in trade for items in-game is permitted, however, players who agree to this type of transaction are placing themselves at risk. 20 Chunk Buffer Limit Factions are allowed a maximum of 20 chunks buffering their base. A 20 chunk buffer equates to 160 walls (for some perspective). The buffer is measured from the EXTERIOR WALL OF THE BASE and does NOT include the base itself. If a faction has a buffer that exceeds 20 chunks, they may be asked to correct the issue themselves, or the issue may be resolved manually by a member of RebootMC staff. If a faction reclaims that area, the buffer faction, or the main faction risk further repercussions including (but not limited to) warnings, bans, unclaiming of land, and disbandment. Persistent offending could result in complete and permanent removal from the server, disbanding of your faction or the like. Do not Spam or use Excessive Capital Letters Spam on RebootMC platforms will not be tolerated. The minimal requirement for it to be classified as spam includes (but is not limited to) posting the same or similar messages consecutively within a short timeframe. Messages comprising of all or a large number of caps is also considered spam. Faction Punishment If any player were to use modified/hacked clients with intentions to present an unfair advantage for said player’s faction, the player will be banned (temporarily or permanently). In addition, the faction may also be punished. Offensive Skins and Capes are not Permitted Skins and capes that are offensive or sexually explicit are not permitted on RebootMC. Players using a skin or cape of such nature will be issued a warning. Disregard for this rule following a warning will result in further consequences. Offensive Usernames are not Permitted Usernames that are considered offensive, sexual, or distasteful in nature are forbidden.

What is a Blacklisted Modification? Any modification that gives a player a significant advantage in-game is a blacklisted modification. Modifications that alter the way that the client sends data to the server are forbidden. A list of allowed modifications can be found HERE.
