/// Minecortex Community Guidelines ///

Hello, Staff & Players! This post should help you when it comes to knowing what and what not to on Minecortex. If you have any suggestions for rule changes, please contact the Management Team. Here at Minecortex, we want our players and staff to be free from bullying, attacks, stressful /negative people, and toxicity of any nature. Because of that, we will stand against any false information, fake news, and anything which is bias/unfair. Harassment toward anybody is greatly frowned upon here.

The following is not tolerated on any of our platforms and will be removed with an warning, mute, censorship, or ban issued toward the offender:
  •  / Copyright infringement or any material that violates an individual's contractual, personal, or intellectual property rights or other rights.

  •  / Using our platforms to advertise or market a service or game server (without permission) that lowers our user-base.

  •  / Purchase trolling. Do not de-rank or troll people by buying them a rank lower then what they purchased.

  •  / Spamming or repeating the same message over and over. Do not be an annoyance to other people who use the chat. The only exception to this is messages done privately. However if they ask you to stop messaging them, you must, otherwise you will be warned or muted for harassment.

  •  / Do not annoy or anger the Staff Team. Do not do things that will make a staff member dislike you or anything which annoys them. Examples of this would be: false reports, trolling staff, arguing with staff, repeatedly messaging a staff member with non-important things.

  •  / Impersonation of a staff member or another individual. Do not pretend to be someone you're not.
With this in mind, we don't want our platforms to become a place of toxicity and ridicule about anybody. However, we do allow freedom of speech as long as it doesn't hurt us or other players. We also allow discussions about politics and religion as long as these conversations are kept civil.


The following is completely unacceptable and will result in immediate blacklisting, account termination, removal, and permanent ban from all our platform(s) with absolutely no chance of appeal. All related data/content of the user will be purged from our servers:
  •  / Spreading of viruses, malware, and linking to IP loggers. Do not attempt to bring harm to another person's machine.

  •  / Child porn and sexual content depicting minors. Any offenders of this will have all known information about them reported immediately to U.S. federal law enforcement officials.

  •  / Sharing information that is directly harmful to someone's physical, financial, careers, or reputation aka doxxing. Do not spread rumors about somebody; do not share or link to information that is meant to shame or degrade somebody. Do not witch-hunt individuals. Do not leak someone's private information; This includes but is not limited to: Street Address, IP Addresses, Email Addresses, IRL Name, IRL Location, Phone Numbers, Social Security Numbers, Phone calls, Texts, and Discord/Skype direct/private messages. Respect people's right to privacy. Do not make Minecortex a toxic place.

  •  / Do not attempt to stage a coup or riot against the Administrators. Do not spread misrepresented information about the administration and organization. Do not create drama or stage any type propaganda/riot. Do not make Minecortex a riotous place.

  •  / Social engineering, deception, false flags, or any malicious attempt to gain somebody's trust for nefarious purposes which are harmful toward Minecortex.

  •  / Fraudulent chargebacks or scamming people for IRL money. Do not do anything which causes people to lose in real life currency. Do not commit fraud.

  •  / Anything which is meant to jam, slowdown, or crash our severs/network. Lag machines, D/DoSing, IP Stressing, Spam connecting, etc.

  •  / Disagreeing or failure to follow the Terms of Service.
We take violations of the above VERY seriously. Some of which will cause us to take legal action against the individual.


// Gameplay Rules //

1) Any use of unapproved modifications aka "Hacked Client". This is where you are using either Illegal Modifications or a full on Hacked Client.
Xray / Derp / AntiAFK / ETC (Non-Harmful hacks) - Punishment: First Offence = 2 Day ban  Second Offence = 1 or 2 Week ban  Third Offence = Permanent ban.
Fly / KillAura / Speed / ETC (Harmful hacks) - Punishment: First Offence = 30 Day ban  Second Offence = 100 Day ban or permanent ban  Third Offence = Permanent ban.

2) Exploiting. Glitches // Dupes. This is where you do something which is unfair, breaks the economy, or exploit something that shouldn't be. Punishment: We have the right to do with you as we may if you break this rule.

3) Faction insiding/betrayal or Skyblock griefing. This is where you join someone's faction/island to raid or abuse them. This ruins the fun and purpose of factions/teaming and is generally stupid. However the Faction/Island Owner can do whatever he pleases to those under him/her. Punishment: First Offence = 1 Week ban.

4) Spawn Traps / Purposely creating anything on the border of Spawn or a WarZone/Admin Claims. This is where you build a curtain or any type of big obstruction near or on the border of spawn. This is annoying and makes it hard for players to walk out of spawn. If you are caught doing this, it will be removed and you will be giving a warning along with a 2 hour ban. Increments of warnings will continue until you are at a permanent ban from the network.

5) Portal Trapping // Traps that make it where the player can't play again. This is where you attempt to trap a player in a portal by blocking it. Since the player is not able to teleport out or call for help this is considered bannable, as it would make players leave if they didn't know how to contact a staff member on discord or forums.
Punishment: First Offence = Warning  Second Offence = 2 Week temporary ban  Third Offence = Permanent ban.


Note: The type of punishment you get also depends on your punishment history. E.g If you have a history of spamming chat then you harass a player, your punishment will be a 1 day mute instead of a warning. If you were punished for using a hacked client before then you break any other rules your punishment for the law a 2nd time will automatically jump to that rule's second offence because you have a bad history.

 

// Information & Notes //

// We don't take screenshots or editable chat-logs as proof for anything. However to those that don't fake produce screenshots, you can still report it to an staff member and it will be reviewed by higher staff who will check for legitimacy via checking our own system logs. If our logs don't line up with whatever screenshot you gave us, it will be labeled as false and you most likely will be banned for propaganda/social-engineering and submitting a false report. Important: Pictures of discord chat conversations are to NEVER be trusted, especially since they can not be backed up or proven by us. Discord messages can VERY easily be faked and manipulated with printer or view source in browsers. You won't believe how many times someone who hates us or another individual will produce fake news like this. So don't believe any images of discord messages. As people are now using these platforms like discord for nefarious purposes to wrongfully and falsely put people down.

// Admitting to breaking any rule will not warrant you a punishment. It will however, put you under investigation to see if the claim is legitimate or not.

// Censorship means all platforms mute. Blacklist means a full removal and disable of services from all of Minecortex's platforms.

// Some rules can only be enforced by higher staff members like Managers and Admins. Lower staff are to report to the higher staff if a rule they can't enforce is broken.

// Everything listed here can change at anytime without notice and can be argued by the community for reproof. Just because its not an official rule, doesn't mean its allowed. Use common sense in some situations or just ask a staff member if its allowed.

// Be civil & use common sense. For some people this may be confusing, what we mean by this is don't be a general annoyance to everyone on the server aka creating server drama. We want a mature and respectful community.

// We do our best to fix issues and moderate the community/server. However, we're not perfect. Please report any issues or problematic users to staff. You may be rewarded for reporting malicious users to managers.

// Please read the FAQ Section of the website. Before contacting staff about a question its best to read the FAQ as it might have your answer.
 
// Clearifcation:
  • Swearing is allowed. The community leadership is in favor of freedom of speech.*
 
  • Out of game / IRL Trading is allowed. We are not responsible if you are scammed, however we will ban the person who scammed you if you have legitimate proof.
 
  • Sexual content is allowed, however to an extent. No hardcore porn or completely lewd images on our forums please. We do not want to get our website labeled pornographic.
 
  • Cobble-monsters / Lava-casting is allowed except on the boarder of spawn.
 
  • Scamming (IN-GAME ONLY) is allowed.

// The Administration of Minecortex reserves the right to suspend the connection (temporarily or permanently) of anyone to our network or any one of our platforms for any reason at any time. If we feel you are unfit to play on the server, use this forum/website, or use our discord server or other platforms, for any reason we have to right to do with you as we may. This is only done in extreme situations, and can only be enforced by Executive Team or at sole discretion of the Founder. This is the sovereign property of Computerist, he can do as he pleases.

// Your safety and privacy. We want our staff and players to feel safe every time they join our server, like they're right at home. We don't want people getting hurt via our platforms. Therefore, we not only respect the anonymity of our users and our community, we protect it. Only the Management Team will have access to your IP address(s), Location, Age, Name, etc and this information will not be leaked, given, made public, and/or shared with anyone. We take your personal information very seriously; Therefore, only the most trusted, loyal, and known people are a part of the Management Team. You are not required to give any personal information to any of our staff unless told otherwise by an on the spot Administrator. If a staff member who is not from Management or Executive, asks you to provide personal information (except age) contact an Manager right a way. 

When in screen share for suspected of cheating, the only thing you have to show the staff is your minecraft launcher and your current game which open; You are not required to download anything except discord, (Official link discord.gg). If they ask you to download anything that isn't discord contact an HR Manager right away. If they find that you have illegal modifications or hacked clients downloaded you will not be punished. You will only be punished if they find that a hacked client is currently loaded onto your game or launcher and you're on the server with said hacked client; In other-words you're allowed to be possession of any modifications you want as long as its not being used on our server.

// Your rights:
You have the right to free speech.*
You have the right to dispute any punishment/warning an non-leadership staff member gives you.
You have the right to remain silent, no staff member has the right to force you to say anything.
You have the right to report/file a compliant about any staff member to leadership.
You have the right to request that leadership investigates a staff member under them.
You have the right to be protected from any individual in our community. And have that individual be forced to leave you alone under enforcement of the Moderator Team. AKA a restraining order.


*People who join the Staff/Support Team may lose some of these rights as it would be a conflict of interest due to their position.

*The situations in which we may restrict somebody's speech is if they are doxxing, leaking private information, advertising a different community/server platform/service without permission, harassing/defaming an individual, trying to cause issues for or challenging the leadership team, or you are being generally abusive of the platform and misusing free speech. We do not want our platforms to be a toxic place where new players get instantly attacked in public chat. You are welcomed to talk about politics, religion, and other controversial topics or whatever it is you want to talk about as long as it doesn't fall into the above categories. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. Use discretion!

// Always tell the truth when dealing with Guidelines Enforcers (Moderators). Never be scared to let an Moderator or higher know something regrading a situation or problem, they are here to help you.
