Staff Applications / Old Mod Rules
« on: January 12, 2014, 01:13:46 AM »
MCP had set chat rules, now it has "guidelines".
 Moderators/Guards should not call every little thing and should use reason.
 If someone is spamming, swearing & acting immature they should be muted. If a player uses a swear in a reasonable way:
Spoiler for Hidden:
"Oh shit a zombie just spawned in my base"
They should not be muted.
 

If a staff member feels something does deserve a mute/warning it has to be in the guidelines below.
 

 
 
Any text below this has not been updated for a while.
The most important rule is to use common sense.

Moderator Rules

The Moderator's Job:
A moderator's job is to keep MCP's chat clean. This means that a moderator must look out for:
 
Spam
Caps
Cursing
Disrespect to staff
Advertising
In addition, you are to look out for hackers and help new players seeking help.Rules:
Moderators may NOT PvP another player unless the moderator is hit first. If you are hit, you may defend yourself. If you are caught with contraband, you will not be given any exceptions over a normal prisoner. If a guard sees you with contraband you will be called for it.


MCP's chat rules have always been quite lacking on the punishment side of things, players caps/spam because the worst punishment is a 15 minute mute, this has changed.

Mutes are now based on a strike system, different offenses give a certain amount of strikes. If a player amounts to 3 strikes within an hour they will be muted for 15 minutes. (The hour is a rough estimate, does not have to be exact)

Strikes:
Minor chat spam. = 1 strike
Speaking in a language other than English. = 1 strike (People are welcome to speak in whatever language they like while using the "/msg" command.)
Using too much inappropriate language. = 1 strike (using short swears like "fgt" which clearly represent a swear is 2 strike)
Using too many caps in a message (4 capitals in unison) = 2 strike (using things like "ThIs IsN't CaPS" to avoid a chat call is an instant 15 minute mute, if the player is Free rank or above it is a 30 minute ban).
Disrespecting or harassing the staff. = 2 strikes
Intense caps and/or spam. = 3 strikes (instant 30 minute ban to players with the rank Free and above, by that time they should know the rules and not be breaking them)

If a player breaks one of these rules the moderator is to type "Chat offense <playername> xamount of stikes until mute"

Once a player has been muted their chat offenses reset.

Why a moderator should ban:
Chat Spam [No warning, permanent ban. This would be something like someone joining and shortly after spamming "THIS SERVER SUCKS." If it is obvious that they don't want to be on MCP, you may make sure that they aren't on MCP.]
Racism [No warning. First a one-day ban, then a three-day ban, and after that, a permanent ban.]
Advertising [No warning, permanent ban.]
Constant disrespect to the staff [This is up to the moderator. If he or she feels like a player is being especially abusive, it is a permanent ban.]

Moderator Commands:
/tempmute (used to be "/mute" now is "/tempmute")
/ban
/tempban
/bm info <playername>

Off Topic / Sub-Forum Rules [Read Me Before Posting]
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:35:36 AM »
Off Topic Rules

Welcome to the Off Topic sub-forum! We ask that you follow a few rules before posting here.

1. Do not spam.
2. Do not post any porn or any other inappropriate content. A good rule of thumb is: if you wouldn't show it to your mother, we don't want to see it either.
3. Do not advertise, be it a website or a server.
4. You would put any forum games here, but try to keep them from getting spammy. A forum game where a one-word post is encouraged shouldn't really be here.
5. Keep the inappropriate language off the forum--the odd "bad word" is fine, but excessive cursing will not be tolerated.
6. Do not talk about any other servers.

Following to adhere to any of these rules could result in a ban from the server and from the forums.

Guard Rules
The Guards Job:
A Guard must protect players at all costs and fend off rioters. Also you will be collecting contrabands from players.

Rules:
  • When asking for a contraband, count from 5-0 at a decent pace before sending a player to solitary.
  • Guards may kill 2 players if they see them pvping. However if the guard sees which player started the fight they must only kill that player.
  • No selling contraband.
  • Do not jump from the catwalk to the parkour. Additionally guard hounds are not able to complete parkour or call for contraband. They can message other guards to do so though.
  • You MUST suspend each player for the marked time.
  • Do not kill people without reason.
  • Do not PvP abuse.
  • You may only wear guard armour, but you're able to use any sword you'd like.
  • You must be respectful to all players & staff. No racial slurs, swearing, and calling players names.
  • Follow all chat rules.
  • Do not type "/rankup".
  • Do not send players to solitary for infinite amounts of time.
  • Do not change your name or you will be demoted
  • No hacked clients or unapproved mods should be used during guarding or at any time.
  • If you're asking for a contraband and the player is in a PvP zone you must also be in the PvP zone.
  • No connecting/logging onto the server with Minechat or any other variant.
  • No calling for contraband/sending players to solitary in the following areas: Event hub, Black Market, Smuggler Area, Mob farms, Info Room, or other "special areas" which normal prison rules do not apply.
  • No calling for contraband/sending players to solitary during admin events such as a dragon battle.
  • Banking/selling guard items & items seized is forbidden unless otherwise stated. Guards are allowed to keep 2 different seized weapons (IE 1 sword 1 bow) on their person but must dispose of any other items immediately.
  • Regarding the Marksman Bow it is strictly forbidden to give out, drop, trade, or sell one to anyone. If this is done by accident it must be immediately reported.
  • Guards are not permitted to have an alt account online while their guard account is on.
  • Guards can smoke darts but are not allowed to do hard drugs.
Contraband Items:
  • Swords (5 Minute solitary after counting down from 5)
  • Bows (5 Minute solitary after counting down from 5)
  • Any form of chain armour (15 Minute solitary or kill them on sight)
  • Harmful potions (5 Minute solitary after counting down from 5)
  • Axes (Only if used in PvP, 5 Minute solitary after counting down from 5)
  • Drugs (of any kind 5 minutes)
  • Special PvP items: shotguns, disc launchers, throwing bricks, Silas Sythe, etc (5 Minute solitary after counting down from 5)
       
    • If the item is not actually contraband (i.e. a stick, dye, horse armor) the guard will check first and then give the item back.
    Tips and warnings:
    • You can suspend players by using the command "/solitary (name) (time) (reason)" or use handcuffs to lock them up.
    • If  player kills them self or dies to avoid losing items or avoid solitary time, the guard may suspend accordingly.
    • If a player isn't breaking the rules but you feel as if solitarytime is needed, you may proceed with proof.
    • When applying you must put "Carol Baskin killed her husband" Somewhere in your app as of 25/04/2020.
    • If you get muted as a guard, there is a high chance you will be demoted.
    • When it comes to asking a player for a possibly contraband item: Assume the item is contraband, if it is not return it immediately.
    • Guards must only send players to solitary for a valid reason. Even if a player requests it the guard must have a valid reason.
    • Guards are allowed to transfer items between accounts as long as they are not obtained through their duties and are not contraband. This means items such as armour, tools, or rares can be given to the guards alternate account. Guards cannot make trades or sales on their main account for armour, potions, and other non contraband pvp items but may doing so via alt account is fine.
    • Guards may jail players using abusive pvp spots. This includes things like the top of plots or plots with basements/traps. Do so within reason.

    Before you apply:
    • Do you have previous experience on prison servers?
    • Know all the rules.
    • Age does not matter as long as you're mature.
    • Mutes/Bans influence your chances of being accepted.
    • Do not bug staff to check your application under any circumstances, you be will instantly denied.
    • You must be E block or higher to be accepted.
    • Being caught AFK farming playtime will reduce your chances of being accepted.

Server Rules / MCP In Game Rules
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:13:17 AM »
*All Of These Things Can Get You Either: Jailed, Kicked Or Temp Banned*

1. Do not show any contraband items. These items include:

  • Swords
  • Bows
  • Negative splash potions
  • Chainmail
  • Drugs
  • Special PvP Items (Shotgun, Throwable Bricks, Disk Launcher, Silas Sythe, etc..)
If a guard sees you with these items, he or she will ask for the item, if you do not give the item, you will be jailed. If the item is not actually contraband (i.e. a stick, dye, horse armor) the guard will check first and then give the items back.

2. Do not PvP Abuse. PvP Abuse is when you hit someone or are hit by someone and run into a no PvP zone. If you continue to do this and a guard sees, you will be jailed.

3. Do not grief the tree farms and mines on the server. If you are caught placing blocks in the mines or tree farm like lava, fire, or other harming blocks, you will be banned. Also, do not break the saplings in the tree farm. This, like placing aforementioned blocks, will get you banned.

4. Do not continuously PvP. If you die and go straight back to PvPing too many times in a short period, you will be jailed by a guard.

5. Do not interfere with any guard duties. If you do so, you will be jailed for however long the guard sees fit.

6. Do not under any circumstances attempt to convince a new player to remove pvp timer when you have the intention of killing them. Doing this will result in a temporary ban.

7. Do not under any circumstances attempt to convince a new player to type "/suicide" or "/kill". Doing this will result in a temporary ban.

8. Plot owners are responsible for their plots. You are liable for what a member does/builds on it.

9. Auto fishers are banned. Punishment for using one is usually a 1 day ban and $50,000 fine.

10. Using special items against players in safezones is forbidden and punishable. Items such as Taser, Jarder, Pocket Sand, etc. This does not include the use of lava buckets/flint and steel on plots.

11. No PvPing and running/teleporting away. Doing so may result in you being jailed. If you do this a guard may call "hit and run" and jail for 5-10 minutes. The definition for hit and run is 50-100 blocks away from the site of PvP. Keep in mind this is to prevent players who hit and run excessively, avoid jailing players who are simply tactically retreating to allies etc.

12. It is forbidden to have items that are not legitimate in the eyes of the server economy. Items in this category obtained through glitches, staff, or other players should be reported immediately. An example of these items are Power VII Marksman bows, A sharp 7 diamond sword, or  special event items. Items such as warden axes or simply renamed harmless items are fine.

13. Ignoring the automatic afk kick via use of macros or afk pools is forbidden.

14. No Scamming other players. IE promising to sell an item then not giving it is scamming. Intercepting an item thrown is not scamming it is stealing. Long term deals are not covered for scamming, only instant transactions are.

15. Using exploits or loopholes to kill players or gain an advantage on any aspect of the server is forbidden.

16. Having two accounts online for one user is not permitted if used to get an advantage in game. This includes, afking for farms, earning rewards.

Server Rules / MCP Server Rules
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:12:54 AM »
These rules are pretty much common sense.

If you do not obey these rules, you may be kicked, temporarily banned, or permanently banned.

1. No hacked clients
2. No unapproved mods. Approved mods may be seen here
3. No x-ray texture packs.
4. No spamming or advertising.
5. No profanity.
6. Respect all staff and fellow players.
7. No griefing in the prison. In the free world, this is allowed.
8. No abusing any bugs or glitches that you either discovered or heard about. Please report them to a staff member if you find one.
9. You are responsible for your account. If someone does something on your account that gets you punished, there is nothing we can do. If you are worried about an occurrence like this, change your Minecraft password. If you share an internet connection with another player you may be responsible for their actions. This is a risk you take and it is your responsibility to stop them from breaking the rules, if this is an issue don't use a shared connection.
10. Do not necromance on the forums. Necromancy is when you reply to a forum that has been dead for a long while.
11. If bypass a mute, ban, or other limit with an alternate account both of your accounts will be punished or even permanently banned. Knowing a banned player is bypassing and not reporting it is also against the rules and can get you banned.
12. Do not impersonate other players/staff.
13. No VPNs/Proxies. If you use one you may be banned instantly. If you have a technical reason for using one clear it with a Warden first.
14. Purchasing packages with real money for other players in exchange for in game items is discouraged. If the package buyer chargebacks or the in game buyer does not fulfill terms either party may be out of luck. Our only official statement on the matter is if you do this get full payment in game before buying the package for the user. Do not set drawn out deals over a time frame.
15. Have common sense.
16. By being warden on MCP you agree to be Silas's slave.
17. Wearing Christmas skins before November 12th will result in a banishment.
18. Having an incomplete pepe image on your property will result in a fine.
