Griefing is destroying, or altering, something that does not belong to you, or altering/destroying without the owner’s permission. Griefing also includes stealing/looting/raiding or taking items from chests, furnaces, dispensers, droppers and/or hoppers you do not own. Horse theft is also against the rules! Griefing also includes using protection to intentionally "trap" someones build or prevent them from expanding in the future. With the new economy and protection system, players may take blocks from unprotected builds.
2. Always protect your builds and not builds you don’t own
Protecting your build is very important, as it ensures that you won't be griefed. Yes, our staff team is able to fix your build if it is griefed, but be careful because we will only roll back a griefed build ONCE. If you are unsure about how to protect your build, or unable to get our protection plug-in to work, contact a staff member and they will be happy to assist you. Using our self-protection system to protect builds you do not own, or did not build, is against the rules. We have ways of tracking if a build is yours or not, so we recommend saving your protection limit for something you build yourself, and avoid any punishment.
3. No tp/tpa/warp killing including traps.
When using /tp (for gods) ensure the player, or Intern, wants you there before teleporting to them; the easiest way to do this, is ask. It is not allowed to kill or attack a player when you teleport to them, they teleport to you, or you teleport them to you. It is also against the rules to build traps or set warps that are intended to kill players. If you find a possible death trap, please report it to staff immediately. If you are caught with a trap, it will be destroyed, and you will be punished.
4. Respect all players and staff
Our community is what makes GodWorld so unique; we ask that you respect ALL community members and staff no matter how much you disagree with something they have said or done. If it was against the rules, report it or get a staff to deal with it. Getting involved could end up getting you in trouble! This includes calling names, being abusive or anything that is seen as offensive to the majority.
5. No spam or bad language (including private messages)
Any spam, direct or indirect, to players or staff is not tolerated. This can include excessive punctuation, capitals letters, numbers or symbols. This rule covers all aspects of chat, local, shout and personal messages. It does not necessarily have to be multiple messages to be considered spam. NO bad language, deemed offensive in any country or culture, is to be used on the server. Purposely using this language to activate our language filter is also forbidden and will be punished accordingly. This rule covers local, shout, personal messages, signs, and books.
6. No advertising (in any form)
ANY advertisement of another server is not tolerated, and results in an instant and permanent ban. This includes local, shout, personal messages, signs and books.
7. No abusing glitches/bugs/mods including X-ray
Abuse of any glitch, bug, or mod will result in a permanent ban. This includes hacked clients, unfair mods such as X-ray, duplication glitches, or bugs which can cause the player to have an "x-ray effect" to see underground mineshafts, etc. Just because it's not listed here, doesn't mean it's okay to exploit. This includes any methods to rapidly boost your mcMMO levels.
8. No placing inappropriate links in chat
We recommend you only place GodWorld related links into chat. However, if you do wish to place a link, in local/private message/shout, ensure that is does not contain any inappropriate content. Putting a "disclaimer" (saying the link is inappropriate or for certain ages) does not exclude you from this rule, and it will not be tolerated.
9. Staff impersonation
Impersonation of staff includes telling other players that you are staff, or that you will ban/jail/punish them in any way, shape, or form. Impersonating staff can result in a ban.
