NO HACKED CLIENTS
Created by @Liam
OpiaNetwork has a zero tolerance attitude towards the use of hacked clients. The term "hacking" refers to the modifications of a vanilla Minecraft client. If these modifications allow users to perform actions that others cannot, giving a user an advantage, the user will be punished indefinitely.
If a staff member feels that a user is conducting such an act, and gains sufficient evidence, the user will be banned permanently.
N.B:- The length of punishments are set out in a ban guide, only available to our staff team. Nevertheless, staff members can use their discretion on a case-to-case basis if they believe a user deserves a more lengthy punishment.
RESPECT EVERY MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY
We aim for our network to be a safe haven for players to escape the adversity of the real world. All members should feel welcome upon logging onto the network. Refrain from:
any users on our network.
NOTE: this rule extends to the staffing community.
Please show support and belief in our staffs' decision making. We always strive to have our members' best interests in mind when making decisions. If you disagree with a certain decision, we encourage to contest it in a mature, constructive manner. Being abusive and confrontational will not help the matter.
NO INAPPROPRIATE MINECRAFT SKINS
Minecraft skins should not portray:
You will be immediately asked to disconnect and change your Minecraft skin. Failure to do so will result in a severe punishment against your account.
- Men's genitalia
- Women’s genitalia
- An infamous world leader (i.e; Adolf Hitler, Kim Jong Il, Joseph Stalin).
- Terror organisations (i.e; al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS).
- Hate organisations (i.; KKK, Neo-Nazi, Anti-LGBT).
DO NOT EXCESSIVELY USE CAPS OR SPAM
An excessive mixture of spam and caps floods the chat and is a general nuisance for everybody.
An example of what is not tolerated is:
DO NOT USE DEROGATORY LANGUAGE
Please consider that some members of our community may be at an age where viewing derogatory language is simply inappropriate. Therefore, we will not tolerate language such as:
This also extends to attempting to circumvent the rules by abbreviating/replacing letters. This may include:
The use of lighter words such as 'crap' and 'damn' are not punishable but are certainly discouraged. Similarly, abbreviated words such as 'ffs, wtf and stfu' are allowed but you may be warned by a member of staff not to.
DO NOT ADVERTISE
Please do not advertise any content which is not related to OpiaNetwork. This includes:
If you are live-streaming on our network, you may advertise your channel publicly. However, this must not be abused. We would advise you to post a link to your live-stream every 30 minutes.
- Other Minecraft networks
- Other Teamspeak servers
- Twitter profiles
- Facebook profiles
If you have posted a YouTube video about our network, you may advertise this in the chat. Again, do not abuse this.
DO NOT DISCRIMINATE A USER BASED ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION, RACE OR GENDER
Discriminatory remarks are not prohibited on our network.
We aim to provide a safe and positive environment to all types of races, cultures and genders and we will not accept members discriminating other members based on these differences.
Any member found doing this will face severe punishment.
DO NOT START FLAME WARS
We expect our members to be friendly and courteous to their fellow community members.
We encourage members to share their opinions and to debate; we just ask this is done in a sensible, appropriate manner. Aforementioned, if you do not agree with a certain opinion, reply to it constructively. Do not reply to it by saying:
This is just childish and provokes arguments.
- You’re stupid to believe that! I’m right, you’re wrong!!!
- Do you really believe that? How old are you?
- Your opinion doesn’t matter!
DO NOT MISLEAD OTHERS
Do not trick other users or mislead them to do something that will give you an advantage. Confusing your opponent, or assisting them into do something punishable, is not tolerated.
This may include a member pretending they are a staff member. It can also include saying:
DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OTHER'S PERSONAL OR CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
- Press ALT+F4
- I am a moderator, do what I say or you will be banned!
- It is okay to hack on this server, it is not against the rules!
No one wants their private details being distributed out to a large network of users without their consent - so, don't do it.
This is considered a severe punishment and you will be permanently removed from all platforms of our network if you are caught doing this. Personal information would include:
DO NOT POST JUMP-SCARES
Posting a link to a jump-scare that has the nature to scare or disturb other users is strictly prohibited.
We take the distribution of these sorts of links very seriously as it can mentally scar users and, in some cases, be fatal.
DO NOT POST PORNOGRAPHIC LINKS
The distribution of pornographic links is simply not allowed.
Considering our player base may be predominantly under the legal viewing age, and the fact this is simply inappropriate for a Minecraft server, users will be dealt with rather harshly.
DO NOT EXPLOIT BUGS AND GLITCHES
Please report any bugs or glitches to: email@example.com
DO NOT USE ALTERNATE ACCOUNTS TO BYPASS BANS
DO NOT EXPLOIT ANY LOOPHOLES IN THESE RULES
THESE RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME
