    PrimeMC: Official Server Rules

    This document contains all global and individual server rules that our players are required to follow while playing on Prime. Failure to follow these rules will result in your account being punished by server staff. Action is taken on a case-by-case basis and may differ depending on the violation and staff member handling your file.

    IMPORTANT: Staff members always have the final say. Whether you broken an actual rule or not, if there is reason to believe your behaviour is disrupting the experience of others, you may face consequences. Players who use common sense, should not have an issue.

    Our rules change frequently, so it is recommended that you check this post regularly.

    Part A: Chat Rules (Public/Private)
    These rules apply to messages sent in chat, whether it is public or private. Violation of these rules may result in warnings, chat mutes (temporary and permanent) or server bans. Please remember that staff can see ALL private messages that are sent on the server.
    1. PG-13: Any and all chat must be done keeping PG-13 in mind. No use of profane or mature language is allowed in chat. This includes bypassing the filter.
      Example: “F*ck this sh*t!!”

    2. Accusations: Accusing other players of certain acts is not allowed through in-game chat. This includes hackusating or scamusating. Please choose to report players on our forums instead, otherwise staff cannot help you.
      Example: “Somebody is using hacks!!”

    3. Equality & Respect: You are expected to treat all players with equality and respect. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. Any form of hatred or rude behaviour is prohibited, especially behaviour of toxic kind. Under disrespect we suggest any statement that may be second guessed by you or another player.
      Example: “LOL somebody looks like ... in real life”

    4. Racism: Any form of racist, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist, or other discriminating comments/actions against another player is prohibited and will be punished in full effect.
      Example: “Somebody is a n***er”

    5. Spamming: Any form of spamming (including encouraging others to spam) is not allowed in chat or private messaging channels. This includes: sending the same message multiple times, and spamming (special) characters.
      Examples: “dgoijdfiojdfijojdf”, “TP for an event”, “TP for an event!!”, “TP for an event!!!”

    6. Caps: Use of excessive caps is not allowed in chat or private DM.
      Example: “DID YOU SEE THAT??!!”

    7. Asking for money/ranks: Asking others for money or server ranks is not allowed. This includes asking to exchange server items for in-game ranks.
      Examples: “Can I have OP??”, “Giving 6k for Titan Rank!”

    8. Private Information: Sharing or asking for (any part of) private information, including but not limited to: (IP) address, current location, last name and credit card information, is strictly prohibited and will be punished to full extent. Respect each other’s privacy.
      Example: “What is your age?”

    9. Inappropriate Links: Sharing links of inappropriate sites, or distributing inappropriate pictures is not allowed and will be punished accordingly.
      Example: “Watch ****hub.com”

    10. Language: English is the main server language. A large share of our playerbase also speaks Dutch. These are the two official languages that may be spoken in public chat. Other languages may be spoken in private.
      Example: Obvious

    11. Impersonation: Impersonating other players or staff members is strictly prohibited. Using nicknames to impersonate others will result in you permanently losing your nicknaming ability.
      Example: “I am (staff)’s alt!”

    12. Moderating: We appreciate all kinds of additional help from our players, but it is not tolerated to enforce or command a player to follow a specific rule (aka. “minimodding”), even if they are being extensively rude. We have moderators in-place that can take care of these issues. Please report players to our forums instead of arguing with them.
      Example: “Speak English or you will be banned!”

    13. Honesty: Players are expected to be honest while speaking to our staff. Any form of lying or teasing will not be tolerated.
      Example: “Maybe I have hacks, maybe not.”

      Example: “Check out my YouTube channel: youtube.com/…”

    16. Hate Speech: Any form of hate speech is not allowed, including calling out in-game players or features on the server.
