Server Rules

Please note before reading: These rules are specific rules for the Firnezia Minecraft server. More ‘rules’ on behavior and content are written in the t.o.s.
To keep the server fun for everyone we need to have some rules, without them it would become chaos.
You are not required to read all of this page and all of the rules, we know a lot of players don’t do it anyway.
However we will judge a player by those rules.

The basic server rules are shown on entering the server for the first time, at the “Lake of Info” and by typing /rules.

The most basic server rules are set here as well:

The most basic server rules:
[1] Don’t grief or steal. If it’s not yours, don’t touch it.
[2] Don’t irritate other players.
[3] Don’t build lag creating builds/machines/farms
[4] Don’t use game altering software (x-ray/hacks/mods).
[5] Keep it fun for other players.
[6] Listen to rules given by staff.
[7] Use Common sense.
[8] Don’t ask the staff for ranks/perks/items.
Extended rule overview and explanation at Http://www.Firnezia.Net/server-rules.

[9] Keep the chat clean.
[10] No vulgar/offensive player names or skins.
[11] Don’t ask or give away personal information of players.
[12] No advertising of any kind.
[13] Don’t claim to be someone you are not (staff/site owners).
[14] Don’t block off public area’s.
[15] Don’t make player traps.

Those rules are the most basic of rules and very easily understandable.
Because some players might have some problems understanding those rules here is a short explanation on them.
1. Don’t grief or steal. If it’s not yours, don’t touch it.
I don’t really know how this rule can be made more clear: if it’s not yours, don’t touch it. And yes, “borrowing” without asking is stealing!
[2] Don’t irritate other players.
This rule includes, but not limited to, spamming the chat over and over again and standing in the way of players that are trying to build.
[3] Don’t build lag creating builds/machines/farms
The server can handle a limited amount of ticks at a moment. When multiple players have a lot of animals in a small place or constant redstone clocks this will cause lag for the server and with that for other players.
There for it is not allowed to have more than 1 animal on each 1×1 block. Give the animals space to move around to decrease lag.
Massive redstone builds are awesome and we will not say you can’t make them. But when a build is constantly running the signals used are on a very high frequency we will shut it down. Please do use your brain to decide what can and what can’t be made. If you can’t figure it out ask a admin for advice.
-Please note: when you build something that is causing lag, a staff member will adjust the build to decrease the lag. Lagging the server out causing a crash might result in a direct ban.
[4] Don’t use game altering software (x-ray/hacks/mods).
Very simple, don’t use anything that gives you an unfair advantage over other players. X-ray gives you an unfair advantage because you can see certain blocks.
Normal texture packs are allowed. Addons that help you build are also no problem, as long as it does not helps you to be quicker/better in playing the game than others that don’t use the addon. Not sure? Ask an admin.
[5] Keep it fun for other players.
This basically is a rule that includes every single rule to keep the server fun.
[6] Listen to rules given by staff.
When a situation asks for it a staff member will tell you what to do accoarding to the known rules or he will say how things will be done wether they are listen under “the rules” or not. Listen to the staff and their rules/commands.
[7] Use common sense.
We assume you are smart enough to know how you should behave and how not to behave, even when things are not listed as rules use your common sense and think if something should be done or not.
[8] Don’t ask the staff for ranks/perks/items.
No one, and yes with ‘no one’ we do mean really no one, no exceptions, will be given ranks of staff, perks, or items.
This means asking to become staff, getting asstetic perks or getting items spawned in for you will ALWAYS result in a ‘NO’.
Under the tab “Firnezia” or “The Server” you can read how this server is meant to be played. Spawning in items or giving rans away is not included.
Asking staff for something is useless anyway since, basically 99% of the staff, is unable to give anything to anyone besides a ban or jail time.
[9] Keep the chat clean.
Very simple, don’t swear, curse, call players names, etc. Keep it fun.
[10] No vulgar/offensive player names or skins.
Pretty simple to understand I would say.
[11] Don’t ask or give away personal information of players.
Asking personal info is not necessary to be able to play the game. Added to this is that you never know who one really is over the internet.
We would advice you to keep the real personal info (real name, street/town where you live/etc.) a secret. Keep your location at country or state level, more details are not needed by anyone.
[12] No advertising of any kind.
We are a Minecraft server, not an advertisement service. On purpose advertising of any kind is there for not allowed.
[13] Don’t claim to be someone you are not (staff/site owners)
This result in nothing for you, only a ban when we feel mercy full.
[14] Don’t block off public area’s.
Other players have to be able to acces public locations like spawn and quest locations.
[15] Don’t make player traps.
While players can teleport out of an claimed area (griefprevention command: /trapped) it is not allowed to make any traps in a non PvP zone.
Making traps in a PvP zone is allowed, only the trip wire/button kind. Traps where you let a player teleport to you are NEVER allowed.
More about PvP zones right here

So far the basic server rules of the server. They might be boring and you might not have read them, but once again, we will judge players by those rules.

Some players might try ‘things’ to get passed a rule, so for those that are planning to try, please do read the following.
-Not following the rules can result in a kick, jail time or being banned from the server.
-Plugins that are used in Firnezia are setup in a certain way. If you cant use a command you are not allowed to use it (very simple). Type /help in the server to see all the command you have acces to. Want to know about the settings of a specific plugin? Check our wiki. The wiki of Firnezia has all the specific commands/settings on this server. Other settings can be found on the authors page (link on the wiki)
-Finding loop holes/rules not said in the rules and misusing them will still result in punishment (rule 5 and rule 7). Instead report this to a staff member to be fixed.
-Everyone is treated the same. Being in the server for a long time or having bought a rank does not give you more rights than others.

This are the rules in the Firnezia server. Most of the rules are common sense but sadly had to be explained for some.
If you are capable of following the rules and having a fun time with other players please do join the server.
