Pixelmon Server Rules

Pixelmon Server Rules

Welcome to Pixelmon! In order to create an environment that is enjoyable for all players, we have created a carefully defined set of rules which apply to each and every player on Oasis. Please read these rules carefully, as you are responsible for knowing and following them, and will be held accountable for any rules you break. Unfortunately these rules are still a work in progress. Not every specific rule is posted on here. It is up to the discretion of the staff as to whether or not a rule has been violated. If you have been found to have violated a rule not on this list, depending on the severity, you may only receive a warning and the staff member who warned you may be required to discuss the issue with the rest of the staff.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Section I. Griefing

a. Griefing Defined
Griefing is defined as the act of destroying or modifying blocks that another player has placed without their consent. It also encompasses building on another person's property, or within 5 blocks of it, without their consent. It also includes ruining other people's playing experience, such as causing mass server lag.

b. Consequences for Griefing
If you are caught griefing, or evidence has been submitted proving you have griefed, you may be banned for a period of time as determined by the staff. If your griefing is on a larger scale, it is likely that you may receive a permanent ban. If it is on a smaller scale, your ban time can last anywhere from a few hours up to one week.

c. Reporting Griefing
There are three ways in which you can report griefing:
1. By making a post or private message to the staff on the Oasis SMP forums.
2. By alerting a staff member while playing in-game on Oasis SMP.
3. By making a post on the forums, preferably with a video or screenshot(s). If you'd like your case to have action be taken against it more quickly, please provide evidence of the grief, such as a screenshot.

d. Grief Removal
Should your house/creation be griefed, you are to report it to staff within 10 days. Should staff find a house/creation that has been griefed, and not reported, they may remove it with no refund of items. This is to cut down on the houses built by guest who only visit once, leaving half built or abandoned house behind.


Section II. Stealing

a. Chest Stealing
You may not steal items from another player's chest in the regular world. If you are caught doing this, you may be instantly banned, either permanently or temporarily.

b. Death Stealing
If another player dies, they drop their items on the floor upon death. You will know a player has died if you see a pile of items on the ground If you find an instance such as this, you are NOT allowed to take the items in the smp world. You must leave the items where they were, since it is probable that the player has recently died, and is searching for their items.

c. Replacing Lost / Stolen Items
Replacing lost or stolen items is a tricky thing, seeing as there is no way to prove the validity or exact amount of missing items. In addition, it is highly recommended that you lock all of your chests with a [private] sign. As such, a staff member is not required to replace any lost or stolen chest items on Oasis SMP. If you die from falling in lava, zombies, drowning etc. your items will not be returned. Replacing lost or stolen items can only be done by a staff member.


Section III. Murder/Battles

a. Battling Consent
You are not allowed to engage in a trainer battle without the other player's consent to it. Both parties must be in agreeance before starting a battle.

b. Murder
Even if PVP is off, there are other ways to kill players. These include things such as spawning lava on them or pushing them off of a cliff. These actions are strictly prohibited.

c. Traps
Traps are allowed, but MUST be clearly marked with a sign that they will result in death. If they are not, you will be punished. If you die from a marked trap, it is your fault and you will not receive a refund for your lost items.

Section IV. Building Rules

a. Pillars
If you build a small, thin pillar in order to reach a high area, you are required to remove it when you are done using it. Tall thin pillars or walkways are not allowed. It is up to the discretion of the staff member if a tower falls within this category. These pillars look very ugly and are an eyesore to the whole server.

b. Property Restrictions
Any issues concerning property ownership or building rights is within the discretion of the staff, or the people in charge of whichever faction you join.

c. Lag Generating Structures
Builds which generate excessive amounts of lag as determined by staff are prohibited. Examples include large scale auto farms and Redstone Clocks. In the event a build is deemed to generate excessive amounts of lag it must either be dismantled or modified in a way to bring lag generation down to an acceptable level as determined by staff.

d. Generating/Duplication Machines
As of update beta 1.7+, Pistons were added that could be utilized to make multiples of one material or generate new materials. These are not permitted on this server and will result in a ban. Along with this, no other form of duplicating items will be tolerated whatsoever. Any breach of these rules can result in a permanent ban. Smoothstone generators are the only type of block generator that the staff will allow, however it is advised that you keep them relatively small.

e. Property Claiming
If you want to claim an area of open land for you or your faction, you must clearly define the area. If something is built inside the borders of the claimed area, you must ask a staff to move it from the area. If you take it upon yourself to remove it, it will be considered griefing.

f. Faction Rules
Rules established within a faction of players are binding within the designated space of the township or community. For example if there is a faction that wishes to have plots be a lesser or greater distance or a spleef arena that allows killing you are agreeing to these rules by entering the faction. The rule variations should be posted in a readily visible area to avoid confusion. You are allowed to sell off plots of land within an established town or community so long as there is nothing built on the land using spawned items. Faction rules override server rules so long as at least 2 different staff members agree with said rules. If the majority of staff have any problems with the server rules being broken in the faction, they can give warnings and punishments at their discretion.


V. Powerleveling/Trade Scamming
a. Powerleveling
You are not allowed to powerlevel by constantly battling other trainers. Doing so may result in warnings or bans as determined by a staff member.

b. Trade Scamming
DO NOT scam anyone in a trade. If you're trading someone, make sure you take screenshots before you accept the trade as evidence in case they scam you. If no evidence is submitted that someone has scammed, they will most likely get away with it, but they will be under close watch afterward. If more people claim that someone has scammed them, that may be enough evidence to ban them.

Section VI. Banned Items / Storing Items

Here is a list of items that are banned from being spawned or found in your inventory. If you are found to have these items in your inventory, disciplinary action will be taken against you immediately.

- Lava Buckets
-TNT
-Flint & Steel

a. Usage of Lava:
You are allowed to use Lava if you have a staff member's consent. Any abuse of this privledge may result in a ban or other punishment determined by staff.

Section VII. Appealing a Ban

Any player who is banned for any reason may appeal their ban on the Pixelmon Forums. You MUST have the reason you were banned, and a convincing argument as to why you deserve to be pardoned. It will help your case to know the particular staff member who banned you.

a. Ban Evading
At no point in time are you allowed to come on the server in a different account, if you do we will easily know, and you will be punished to further extent. This will most likely result in an IP ban. If you are banned on the Oasis-SMP server, that may be reasonable grounds for a staff to ban you on Pixelmon. Talk to staff prior to joining if you are to avoid confusion.

b. Blaming Others
If you have performed a specific action that is seen as bannable offense on Oasis SMP, then keep in mind, you will get caught. Blaming someone else will not change the situation. You are responsible for your account and what happens on it. "My friend did it!" is not a valid excuse.


Section VIII. Proper Conduct/Censorship

a. Other Servers
If you decide to start your own server, or become infatuated with another minecraft server, there's nothing we can do to stop you. However, we do ask that you not promote outside servers while in-game on Oasis. Doing so may result in one warning, then continued advertising of another server may result in a permanent ban.
We only ask that you give our server the same level of respect that the founders of Oasis gave every other server upon its creation.

b. Chat Etiquette
Swearing and sexual content are allowed on Oasis, but you should keep in mind that it is only allowed at an acceptable level. If someone tells you that they feel uncomfortable with the level of swearing or sexual content, you are to stop immediately. Excessive swearing or inappropriate language is punishable by a kick or even a ban. Oasis is home to a wide range of ages, so we ask that you try to keep chat suitable for all of them. Socially unacceptable terms such as 'getting raped' are also not allowed on Oasis. Oasis prides itself on the inclusion of everyone and we ask that you try not to make anyone feel uncomfortable or discluded. Please also note that you must use the English language when talking in general chat. Feel free to use other languages in private messages, but if you're going to talk to the server as a whole, make sure they all can understand what you're saying.

c. Respect
We ask that you exhibit a level of respect that would be expected from you in person. This includes respecting other players as well as Staff members. Please respect the authority of the staff members because they generally know what they're talking about. Also, the use of racial slurs or other extremely offensive language/behavior is strictly prohibited. Do not give out other players personal information without their consent.

d. Spamming
Spam is defined as obnoxious chat behavior and is prohibited. Examples of spam include using all capital letters in a sentence, random letters, macro use in public chat without permission, various forms of begging, the usage of a hacked client to spam or any other form of disrupting chat solely for being a nuisance.

e. Nicknames/Prefixes
If you wish to change your name, you must request it to a staff member that is online. Nickname changes are under the discretion of staff, as are prefixes. Do not abuse the nicknames or prefixes or they will be taken away.


Section IX. Client-Side Modifications

This section of the server rules states which modifications are allowed and are banned. Client-Side Modifications are generally not allowed and need to be approved by an Admin/Owner before being used. Here is a short list of Modifications that are strictly banned and some that are Admin approved.

a. Banned Modifications
-Xray (this includes xray texturepacks)
-Zombe's Client Modifications pack.
-FullBright.
-ZANS minimap

Any other modifications that give you an unfair edge over other players are also not allowed. Please note that using these can result in a kick, temp-ban, permanent-ban, and/or IP ban.

b. Allowed Modifications
-ClientSide Mini Maps
-Too-Many-Items
-Better Chat (Note: abusing the hot-key feature is considered spam, and will be punishable like such)

c. Other Modifications
Modifications other than the ones listed above are not allowed unless you have the permission of a staff member. If you are unsure of the legality of a mod, please ask a staff member.


Section X. Rule Loopholes

a. Using a Loophole for Personal Gain
If you or any other player on the server is found using a loophole in the rules to get an advantage over any other player, you will be punished accordingly. This covers any action deemed unlawful by the staff.

b. Finding and Reporting Loopholes
If you or any other player have found someone using a rule loophole, please report it to the staff, preferably, via the forums or in-game chat.

c. Constituted Rules and Regulations
The staff have the power to punish players for rules not found in this document. However, they must be able to present evidence of a wrong-doing and a good reason to why the player deserved to be punished. If no sufficient reason and/or evidence is given, the punishment may be lifted, if determined by staff.

Section XI. Alternate Accounts
a. Alternate Accounts
You may only have one account on the pixelmon server. This is to avoid abuse of the pixelmon features and power-leveling/starter trading and so forth. Only staff may have alternate accounts.

b. Alternate Staff Accounts
If a member of staff wishes to have an alternate account with staff powers on it, they must post a thread about it on the staff forums and have it approved by the staff before having staff powers added to it.

c. Transferral of Power
As mentioned above, once the thread is approved by another moderator or administrator, they may add powers to the alternate account. If it is a staff member wishing to transfer power, meaning leave the other account as a non-staff account, a public thread must be made after the staff thread has been approved. If it is a non-staff member, they may only make a public thread that has to be approved by a moderator or an administrator.

Section XII. Subject to Change and Discretionary Clause

Please be aware that these rules are subject to change at any time, and it is the responsibility of you, the player, to review the rules and be aware of any changes. You will be held accountable for your actions, and any rule breaking can and will be met with punishment. All of the above rules are under the discretion of the Oasis staff. This also means an administrator can enforce a new rule at any given time whether in game or on this official list. If at any time you feel a staff member has overstepped their bounds, check with a different staff member for a second opinion. It will be documented in the server logs and may be reviewed upon if needed.


Section XIII. Staff Rules

Intro:
Your first priority as a staff member MUST be to help out other players and catch griefers before you build for yourself. If there are other players who require legitimate assistance, you MUST help them out, even if it means interrupting construction on one of your projects.

a. Kicking/Banning
Here is the procedure for kicking/banning a player who has broken a rule.

-You may first give the player a warning in chat, then if no response comes or if the illegal act continues, you may kick the player with a warning message upon their return.
-If the rule breaking continues, you may ban the player with the message “You can appeal on the Oasis SMP forums" or something of the likes.
-You must then post a Convicted Players thread on the forums with their name and information included and lock it.

On a separate note: /kick and /ban are ONLY to be used for legitimate, moderating purposes. This includes Teamspeak.

b. Worldedit
Worldedit has the power to completely wreck the server. If used incorrectly, these plugins can cause massive lag and even cause the server to crash and rollback up to 10 or so hours. You MUST be fully versed in how to use these plugins. You can find wiki’s and instructions on how to use these plugins online. If you mess up, you may have your Worldedit permissions revoked.

c. /item and Selling Items
ONLY staff members may sell spawned items to other players. You must only sell items to players that are on the list under “Server Info” on the Oasis SMP forums.

d. Other Commands
/time, /send, /tp - If you are given access to these commands, they are only to be used for legitimate purposes only, such as cleaning up griefs, catching griefers, assisting players, etc. In general, its best to assume that all commands are to be used for legitimate purposes only, no trolling.

e. Retiring
Any staff member who chooses to retire will be instantly given the rank of "Retired". This constitutes the same permissions as "Architect," as well as any prefix/color changes that the ex-staff member might have received in the past from donating. The retired member will be removed from Moderator/Administrator groups on the forums and teamspeak, and, if the staff member was an Admin, the password to the console will be changed and distributed to all remaining Admins. That player now must earn through the ranks of staff like any other player, and will not have special treatment just because they were a mod or admin beforehand. In order to become a retired player, you must ask an admin or owner, otherwise you will stay that rank and perhaps get demoted instead, due to inactivity. However, no Retired player is guaranteed a rank, the promotion is at the discretion of the staff.

f. Demotion
Demotion will occur to a staff member if one of the following things happens:

-Break ANY of the rules, especially the ones made for staff
-Consistent inactivity of two weeks or more at a time (which means you don't have to be on everyday to not get demoted, just log on and play for a bit every week, and try your best to do your job during this time)

If you're going to be inactive, and are afraid of losing your staff rank, please retire or warn the staff via the forums. Otherwise if you get demoted, you may be demoted to the rank you had before you got staff. If not, we'll try and get a hold of you and ask you why you were inactive. You also will be given no special treatment if you are demoted. You also can be demoted by a majority admin and/or owner vote, or if an owner wants to demote you, he has the power to, despite what everyone else thinks. Also, JrMod is a test staff rank, and if the admins agree that you've done bad at being a staff member, you may be demoted. As for as being inactive for holidays, please post something about your vacation in the staff forums, and tell us how long you think you'll be gone for, and you may not get demoted, depending on the circumstances. In the case of breakage of your computer, or no internet, either go to your friends house or your school and make a post in the staff section about it, and it will be discussed among admins what to do with you.

g. Crimes Unspecified by Rules
In the event a player is found to have committed an action deemed to be worthy of punishment but is not a technical violation of the server rules a punishment may be issued for this offense. See section a. kicking/banning for further info. In addition to the punishment staff will be required to amend the rules within a reasonable amount of time to reflect this previously unknown illegal action.

In the event staff discover a new player right as a result of consensus or the resolution of player disputes the server rules must be amended within a reasonable amount of time to reflect this discovery to ensure equality amongst the population. Staff reserves the right to interpret the rules as they see fit!
