OFFICIAL IN GAME RULES
Last Update: 10/17/2020
These rules apply to all users on the FadeCloud Network, regardless of any package or rank purchased from our store. If you fail and/or refuse to comply and follow these rules, you may be permanently banned or muted, therefore, we highly recommend that each user reads and follows these rules to avoid receiving punishments. We strongly prohibit any kind of punishment avoiding which includes the usage of alternative accounts.
All decisions made by the staff are final. If you feel a member of our team is abusing please report them using the correct forum section or contact another staff member, preferably an admin.
- Admins reserve the right to change these rules with or without notice.
- Admins can permanently ban at their discretion if you are considered to be a nuisance to the server, staff, or its players.
Not all examples are listed in the rules, and Players can be punished for something that is not directly specified.
- Players are expected to familiarize themselves with the rules before using any of our services.
- Staff members are required to keep proof of your punishments for seven days (This excludes warnings and mutes less than a day). Any appeals or complaints after that will not be reviewed and they will be denied.
- If you are muted more than 20 times within a time span of 1-2 months (The severity of these offenses will also be monitored), admins can issue a permanent mute if they feel that you are a nuisance to the server, staff, or players. You may appeal to be unmuted/ unbanned after 6 months of being permanently muted/ banned for being a nuisance.
- Notice: If a player asks a question such as "Is [insert rule breaking word here] a mute?" They will not be punished. If a player asks something such as "What were they muted for? [Insert rule breaking word here] ?" They, again, will not be muted. However, if a player asks a question such as "What are you, [insert rule breaking word here] ?" that will be a muted. Keep in mind there are only some examples, staff will decide based off of context and common sense on what should and should not be a mute in scenarios such as this.
| Purchasing an Unban
If you have been punished and are at fault of a valid ban, we permit users to purchase up to 3 unbans. You must appeal, requesting to purchase an unban using the same format as a Ban/Mute Appeal.
Unban Purchases are not permitted to users who were punished for the following:

| 1 | Spam // Chat flooding // Spam promotion
Any sort of obnoxious spam, please try to avoid this.
Examples of spam include continuously posting the same thing over and over again in chat. If you are trying to advertise a shop/item/auction via macro or manually, you must keep your ads and repeating messages 3 minutes apart, this also applies when advertising your twitch/youtube stream. This also includes [item]ing an item. No exceptions. If you use multiple accounts to bypass the 3-minute shop/stream advertisements, all accounts involved will be punished.
1st Offence (Warning) 2nd Offence (10min mute) 3rd Offence (30min mute) 4th Offence (1h mute) 5th Offence (1d ban)
6th Offence (3d ban)
After the 3rd offence, players should recognize that ‘Spamming’ is against the rules, thus any offences after the 3rd Offence, we will just assume you’re doing it to disrupt the community. If we feel that this was the case after the 6th offence, then a 7d ban will be provided for further offences (However, this can and will change up to admins discretion).
| 2 | Harassment // Excessive player and Server disrespect
Excessive disrespect/ harassment of a player or groups of players will not be tolerated, this includes staff or server disrespect. If you have a problem with the server, either create suggestions, bug reports or threads, but negativity will not be accepted or effective. This is similar for Staff, if you have issues with a staff member report them on the forums, any negativity towards them will be punished for Harassment, don’t be surprised if you’re punished for it. Staff and Players will be encouraged if spoken about negatively to create a file on said player(s) to show the ‘Constant Harassment’, which will be presented to Management. If we feel that there has been harassment towards a staff member or player over a period of time is enough then punishments over the stated offences, even perm bans and blacklists will be handed out.
Examples include this server is shit or speaking about the server in negative context over a period of time (excessive), similarly for players or staff.
The following punishments will be handed out if we feel that the Excessive Player, Staff and Server Disrespect is not enough to permanently remove said user, and/or we feel that the user will respect the punishment and not continue to harass afterwards.
NOTE If this is excessive you may be removed from the network by an admin if they feel you are harmful to the server.

| 15 | Alt Abusing
Using an excessive amount of alts shows us that you're using the power of getting public alternative accounts in order to give yourself an unfair advantage. You are allowed an infinite amount of alternate accounts on all servers (Be reasonable, try to limit yourself to 10). In the event that you purchased the Minecraft account from the official website rather than using a public alt gen, you can record yourself changing the skin of the account in order to be unbanned. Alt abusing can also include using an alt/s you own. Using GKits and Member kits are permitted, as they are obtained through purchases and the universal role.
Examples include using an alt account on prison to boost your main account, using an alt to boost chances in /jp and using an alt on skyblock to place generators to exceed the island limit.
1st Offence (Permban of all alts) 2nd Offence (Permban of main)
| 16 | Public Boosting
If a member of the community is using their Main or Alts to allow the community, or a select few from the community, to gain a major advantage for free (This does not include public grinders, as they are not major advantages and the Island Members get the drops from the grinder, rendering them not completely free), they will be punished accordingly. Using an Alt to accomplish this will result in punishment via Rule 15, regardless of giving yourself an advantage or not. Using your main account to allow players to gain an advantage over another for free won't be tolerated and will be punished via Rule 16; this includes players who partake in the action of obtaining these items for free. Using accounts to AFK spawners, gens, etc. is allowed as long as those accounts are not obtaining the proceeds for free (Exception: Prison Miners).
Examples include AFKing a MobCoin generator on a players island to obtain them for free.
NOTE: This does not mean the island this is occurring on is in trouble, as an investigation would need to be required to figure out if the island is allowing this publicly, privately, or not at all.

This includes constant Toxicity, Negativity and Player or Staff Disrespect, anything that may affect Players, Staff’s or the Communities experiences negatively. This punishment will be given out if we feel that the user who has been punished will benefit positively and grow after this punishment ends.

1st Offence (Community Removal)
| 18 | Mute Evasion // Ban Evasion // Botting
If you use an alt to evade a mute your main will be banned for the remainder of the time and your alt will also be muted for the remainder of the time. If you break a rule while muted on your main in something such as /shout, party chat, /msg and so on, you will be banned for the remainder of the mute unless the punishment is greater than the remainder.
Ban evasion is also a punishment. If you are caught evading a ban, you will be banned for the remainder of the original punishment. We will not accept the excuse of "this is my brothers, sisters or dogs account", therefore proof of '1v1' is NOT accepted. You are responsible for your own IP and thus you must inform your 'brother, sister or dog' that they MUST NOT log onto the server If you are banned, as they will be punished. Exceptions will and can be made.
NOTE If the evading continues- Your main account, may get extended time added onto the ban (Discussion made with approval of the Management team)
Botting is also NOT allowed; You will be permanently removed from our community with no further appeals!
Decisions made by staff members are final. Do not argue with a punishment that has been made by one of the staff at FadeCloud. If you feel that one of our Staff members have falsely punished you, please create a ban appeal and if you feel it is needed, a staff report. Any issues or concerns, private message one of the staff members in the administrator team.
