This may include DDoSing, DoSing, Doxing (releasing personal information including ips, maintaining other players' ip addresses, ip address lists, sharing ips, attempting to use / using someone's full name or the like), threats to DDoS, and/or Swatting (which will result in permanent removal from the server and an IP Ban).

Glitches and Exploits - If an exploit is found, report it immediately by contacting a staff member. Using a glitch or exploit within the game to provide yourself, your faction or others an advantage will result in a ban from the server. Examples: Enderpearl Glitching Lava / Water Glitching Item Duplication exploiting /nick to evade getting muted and causing spam 1st Offense: Formal Warning (/warn) 2nd Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban 3rd Offense: 7 Day Temp Ban 4th Offense: 30 Day Temp Ban Glitching into bases (this includes border bouncing to get past defenses) will result in an immediate 7d tempban for the first offense with subsequent offences being reviewed by the Admins/Community Manager and could be permanent. If you and another member are caught working as a team to find a means to glitch into a base you will suffer the same consequences. Note: In cases of very serious exploits the resulting punishment regardless of the quantity of offenses will be a permanent ban - examples of this include but are not limited to duplication of items and punishment is at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners / Devs. Factions caught housing members duplicating run the risk of being disbanded. 4. Respect Players and Staff Staff are volunteers that are here to ensure the server runs smoothly. They do not have the option of ignoring rule breakers. If you choose to disrespect or disregard them, you risk punishment. They are not here to abuse, they are here to keep the server running for everyone. This includes excessive trolling, name calling etc. 1st Offense: Verbal Warning (unless it's excessive) 2nd Offense: Formal Warning (/warn) 3rd Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban 4th Offense: 7 Day Temp Ban Excessive offenses will be at the discretion of the upper staff and punishment will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc. Punishments could include, but are not limited to Permanent Ban, IP Mute, IP Ban, Alt Muting and the like. 5.

Don't Spam or Swear Repeating the same phrases, flooding the chat, repeat or random characters (such as in making designs), writing gibberish or a collection of letters for the purposes of annoying others are all examples of spam as it pertains to this rule. This includes TPA Spam, private message spam, faction join spam and the like. Note: starting hashtags is seen as spam as it coaxes players to start spamming / rioting and purposefully causing spam may result in an immediate warn/mute/kick without a verbal warning. 1st Offense: Verbal Warning 2nd Offense: Formal Warning 3rd Offense: Temp Mute up to 60 Minutes 4rd Offense: 1 Day Temp Ban As is noted below in Rule #8, attempting to trap with spam like "/tp for wild pvp" can result in an immediate 7 day ban, removal of your inventory, and/or a facmute for your whole faction Excessive offenses will be at the discretion of the upper staff and punishment will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc this includes, but is not limited to, trying to start riots / spam / number spam or the like. Punishments could include, but are not limited to, permanent ban, ipmute, or muting of alts. 7. In Real Life Money Scamming / Chargebacks In Real Life Money Scamming in which someone promises to purchase a server store item in return for favors in game will result in a Ban. Scamming someone out of IRL Money is a perm ban. Period. Purchasing ranks for any player other than yourself or in trade for items in game is not permitted. Players who agree to this type of transaction are placing themselves at risk. Chargebacks will result in a permanent ban from the server until the funds are repayed for a first time offense only. Using alt accounts to make a purchase and chargeback will result in your account and all affiliated accounts being removed from the server as well may result in an IP ban.

If you have an issue with a transaction please submit a support request here: https://ospika.net/support-tickets/open Excessive offenses that follow will be reviewed by upper staff and punishment for continued abuse will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc. 8. TP/TPA Killing, Portal Trapping, and Traps TP/TPA Killing and 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 (ie: If the trapper were to log off the player would be stuck there indefinitely, tping to the edge of a derp to hit the tp'er in etc.). If a player chooses to enter a dangerous area they do so at their own risk (This is, after all Factions boys and girls!) Spamming or advertising for "Wild PvP" in which players unclaim an area with the plan to claim on arrival of the other member can result in the same outcome. 1st Offense: 5 Day Temp Ban 2nd Offense: 14 Day Temp Ban 3rd Offense: 30 Day Temp Ban **Using alts to avoid a harsher punishment could result in removal of your accounts from the server. Excessive offenses that follow will be reviewed by upper staff and punishment for continued abuse will be at the discretion of the Head Admin / Owners etc. 9. Insiding A faction is viewed as a team and together as a team work towards a common goal. When a player adds spawners (or a derp for example) to a base or faction claims they are adding into the faction pool. Those spawners are now considered property of the faction and not the player specifically. Players may only remove spawners with the okay from Sr. Faction members (Leaders and CoLeaders) Players may not purposefully or maliciously undermine the faction this includes but is not limited to: Removing Spawners Sabbotaging faction claims or defenses /f open’ing Alt factions Allowing themselves to be killed to make their faction overclaimable Examples of Betrayal that are NOT considered insiding are, but are not limited to: Discussion faction schedules Undermining raids Sharing information that could be gained from proper monitoring of enemies For this rule to be looked into the faction MUST have in place appropriate /f access and /f perms, /2fa, and taken reasonable precautions to ensure they have taken steps necessary to avoid being insided. This can include but is not limited to: Making sure alt factions are properly closed Creggs / TNT are disabled for faction members within important claims. TNT is disabled for faction members within base claims Dispensers are disabled for faction members within base claims Faction claim their base with their faction or ally faction to avoid people /f leaving Ensuring new mods and / or members do not have access to items that could leave the faction vulnerable (such as sponge or obsidian within base claims) Reports will be reviewed on a case by case basis and could result in removal for the duration of the map or the network indefinitely for the account and / or affiliated accounts.
