No pulling players (AFK or otherwise) using a fishing rod or any other means in an attempt to harm or kill them. NOTE: The length of punishment may differ depending on severity/type of the violation. BYPASSING AFK KICKER Bypassing the AFK kicker consists of having any contraption whether its an AFK pool/Machine or an external object/application that allows you to bypass the AFK kicker. No AFK bypass REDSTONE CLOCKS Redstone and hopper clocks - anything that ticks or loops for an indefinite amount of time, without player interaction or involvement, is not allowed. Do not construct any redstone or hopper clocks of any variety on the server. The only exceptions are EXP Bottle Clocks (ones which dispense the EXP, however they must be turned off once you're finished using), automatic chicken farms/cookers, and tree farms. No redstone clocks.

Creating structures of that promotes racism is not allowed. NOTE: Depending on what server you play on, when you have joined the server, or severity of violation may affect the length of the punishment. If a new player joins and the player's intention is to create a disturbance then that player will be banned. SCAMMING Scam - a dishonest scheme; a fraud. Any sort of scamming is not allowed. This includes scamming with /ah, item scamming, or any other method. Scamming is NOT allowed. NOTE: The length of the punishment may differ depending on level of the scam. Please check TIER 4 Violations for scams pertaining to the server's Buycraft. TIER 2 VIOLATIONS |5d Ban -> 10d Ban -> 20d Ban -> Perm Ban| NOTE: Further action may be taken depending on the type of violation that has been broken. ILLEGAL SKILLING McMMO skills and vanilla exp are intended to be leveled while you are performing the action, not AFK. Any way you can level up a McMMO stat or vanilla exp without physically being at your device is not allowed. Machines that auto-grind skills also fall into this category such as Acrobatics Machine, Fishing Machine, and others. If caught breaking the rule, further action may be taken such as resetting the player's McMMO stats. No AFK skilling. No building contraptions or using mods/macros to auto-grind McMMO skills. No AFK grinding with dogs for McMMO XP or Vanilla XP. No grinding with more than 5 dogs for McMMO XP or Vanilla XP (applies to both players and members of the same party with XP-share enabled).

NOTE #2: This rule can and will still apply even after maxing out a McMMO skill. TELEPORTATION KILLING // TRAPS Teleportation Killing- teleporting a player to you with the intent of killing by baiting them or use of any other methods such as saying, "teleport to me for a free raid," and then proceeding to kill them. Traps- a contraption meant to do harm, kill, or trap a player for a long period of time without any way to escape. If you bait a player to teleport to you and proceed to kill them or trap them for long periods of time then it is not allowed. The player must be allowed to teleport out with a command or have an immediate escape. A good rule of thumb: If you teleport a player to you with the intent of killing them, then it is most likely illegal. No teleportation killing or traps on ALL servers. ABUSING COMMANDS WHILE COMBAT TAGGED Abusing regular/donator commands which provides a player the ability to store items, give an advantage to one player, or changes the outcome of the fight for a player while they are combat tagged is illegal. Examples: /near, /ah, /auc, /kit, /fix or /fix all, /wild, /shop, /ec, /pv, /fly and others alike. No using any unfair commands in combat that provide items, storage, or repairs and others.

TIER 3 VIOLATIONS |15d -> 30d Ban -> Perm Ban| SAFEZONE GRIEFING // BORDER GRIEFING Griefing any server protected area such as warps, spawn, or any other region protected area is subject to be removed and will result in a punishment. Major griefing near any server-protected area is subject to be removed as it also obstructs player's movement out of an area. Examples: Making walls, cobblemonstering, lava walls, water walls, and any other form that obstructs player movement. No griefing any part of server-protected area. No border griefing any server-protected area. NOTE: The length of punishment may differ depending on the type/level of violation. ABUSING EXPLOITS/GLITCHES Exploit (v) - make full use of and derive from (a source) It includes glitches from plugins and Minecraft itself. Things such as shop glitches, plugin glitches, map glitches, and duping take up most of the offenses in this category. If you hear about one of these exploits, please report it. Hiding information and keeping information about a glitch is just as worse as using it. No exploiting/glitching. No going (or building) anything on top of the nether. No going (or building/placing blocks) outside the world border. NOTE: The length of punishment may differ depending on severity, length of exploit, damage caused, and other factors concerning the exploit. TIER 4 VIOLATIONS |Perm Ban/Blacklist| CHEATING Cheating (v) - Using any client, mod, or method that gives a player an unfair advantage. Cheating is very disruptive to gameplay and the community. If you are unsure about the legality of using a particular mod, then please talk to a staff member to see if it's okay to use it here. Proceeding to use it without permission may lead to a ban if it is later revealed that it isn't allowed here. So use it at your own risk. Notable examples: Fly, Reach, Crits, Aimbot, Clickbot, Xray, Chest Finder, Macro, Auto-mining, Minimaps with entity tracking, cave finder, and others alike. No cheats, illegal mods or clients on a player's PC. No ghost clients or injectables on a player's PC. No troll clients. No system modifications (such as using regedit to gain an unfair advantage). Refusing or failing to share your screen with a staff member will result in a ban. Ask a staff member if you have questions about a mod being allowed. No "joking" about using cheats. It may lead to an actual ban for cheating. ALTERNATE ACCOUNTS Alts - additional accounts besides a main account. You may not use more than one account on our network. The only exceptions to this are if you have more than one account with a paid rank. You are allowed to use accounts with paid ranks freely but there are some exceptions. You cannot use the additional account(s) to bypass a punishment or vote on the server. If you wish to register a sibling or friend under your IP, it is recommend to talk to a staff member first, so they can confirm there are two different people using the accounts. This is to prevent any false punishments for alting. Additional account(s) must have a donor rank. You may use your 'donor alt(s)' to AFK or play. You may not use additional account(s) for bypassing a punishment. You cannot use additional account(s) for voting. ACCOUNT SHARING Sharing your account with another player of the server, whether it be through password sharing or by letting someone play on your account is not allowed. The account that is being shared will be permanently banned. No account sharing. No giving away accounts. REAL LIFE TRADES A real life trade is the act of trading something outside of ConspiracyCraft (usually money) for in-game items, services, or vice versa. Contracts lasting more than a day also isn't allowed and falls into this category. You may not trade in-game items using anything outside of ConspiracyCraft. You cannot make a contract lasting more than 24 hours. Buying players ranks or other things for a trade from ConspiracyCraft's store is allowed because it is still part of the server. BUYCRAFT SCAM Buycraft scamming is a dishonest scheme involving a player saying they will buy something in the server store (web store, not in-game) for another in exchange for in-game money/items (and vice-versa), but not following through on the agreement. No buycraft scam. It is highly recommend that you involve a staff member or have more than sufficient proof of the deal. Be cautious with trades that seem "too good to be true." DOXING The release of information regarding another user without their explicit permission. Information about another player's life is not yours to share or make known. This concerns larger doxing situations. Below is a list of some examples. However they are not the only ones. User's picture, exact addresses, schooling/job address, IP addresses, and others. MALICIOUS ATTACKS Malicious attacks are attacks/attempts of ddosing, hacking a player, swatting, gathering a player's information, and other actions of similar degree. This includes but is not limited to the ones listed below: DDoS Attacks against a player or any part of Conspiracy's platforms. Hacking Attempts to hack a player or any part of Conspiracy's platforms. Lagging the Server Attempts of lagging the server for personal enjoyment. Swatting Sending law enforcement to a player's location. IP Grabber links Attempts to grab a player's IP address for personal benefit or any malintent. Spoiler: Gameplay Rules TROLL CLAIMING Troll claiming - claiming near an already existing claim without permission. If a player creates a claim for the sole purpose of obstructing someone else’s claim, thus preventing them from expanding their claim, they will be /warned and their claim will be deleted. TROLLING Examples include but are not limited to are base killing, being excessively annoying, having an aggressive behavior for no apparent reason, and doing anything to a player that they do not approve of inside or near their claim. If a new player joins for the sole purpose of trolling and not play at all, they will be permanently banned. If player (who has played for a while) starts being a nuisance, they will first be /warned to stop. If they choose not to stop, they'll be banned for anywhere between 1 and 3 days, depending on the extent and severity of their offense. GRIEFING Griefing - modifying any block/area/claim in a way that would not be approved by the creator/owner of said block, area or claim. Griefing has no place in a friendly survival server. It is extremely frowned upon and is therefore not allowed here. Please respect all that is not yours and do not modify it in a way that would be seen as griefing. The best rule of thumb: if it is not yours, do not touch it. You may not grief claimed or unclaimed land. You are encouraged to report unclaimed builds and bases. As for the punishment, it's completely dependent on the type, extend and severity of the grief. Spoiler: TYPES OF GRIEFS [MILD GRIEF] If it is easily repairable, it can be put into the ‘mild grief’ category. If the grief in question barely even fits into this category, then a verbal warning should suffice. First level: The player will be /warned and told that they will be banned if they continue to disrespect builds or lands that do not belong to them. A staff member can use their discretion to treat it as a second level offense if the damage is bad enough to upset the build or land’s owner. Second level: Ban the player for 5 hours. Third level: Ban the player for 10 hours. Fourth level: Ban the player for 15 hours. Fifth level: Ban the player for 20 hours. [MODERATE // SEVERE GRIEFS] Any grief that is severe or irreparable enough to be needing a rollback falls into this category by default. There are five levels of griefs, ranging from “pretty bad” or “unpleasant” to “in dire need of a rollback”. First level: The player will be /warned and told that they will be banned if they continue to disrespect builds or lands that do not belong to them. A staff member can use their discretion to treat it as a second offense if the damage is bad enough to upset the build or land’s owner. Second level: Ban the player for a day. Third level: Ban the player for 3 days. Fourth level: Ban the player for 5 days. Fifth level: Ban the player for 7 days. NOTE: It's worth noting that building offensive or inappropriate builds, cobble monstering, lava/water curtaining, etc. all fall under this category. RAIDING Raiding - stealing or taking something that doesn't belong to you and/or without the permission of the owner of the item or claim owner. As for the punishments, they're the same as the ones for griefing. FARMS Redstone/hopper clocks aren't allowed here. So please make sure that your automatic farm, breeder or grinder doesn't require one to be built. Semi-automatic and manual farms, however, are allowed. Speaking of farms, you are not allowed to build the following farms and grinders: 0-tick farms of any sort. 'Shaky-Sand' or 'forced update' farms of any sort. Gold farms (aka Zombie Pigman farms). Iron farms (aka Iron Golem farms). NOTE: It's worth noting that you should also see "ILLEGAL SKILLING" and "REDSTONE CLOCKS" in 'Network Violations'. ABUSING DONOR PERKS Abusing a donor perk or command to gain an unfair advantage over others is not allowed. You will be /warned first, but repeated offenses will lead to you losing access to said perk or command and perhaps even a temporary ban. This rule is especially prevalent during PvP, boss fights and server events that specifically advise you to not use any donor perks. Additionally, no donor perk may be used to bypass punishments (and as well as being /ignore'd by another player). WARP PVP & BOSS Both warps are "free for all" PvP and PvE/PvM zones, respectively. You must accept the condition that if you die in either warp, you will lose your items (and XP). You will not be refunded as the decision to jump down and participate would've been entirely yours. NOTE: Items that you lose will not be refunded, regardless of who took them, who you had an agreement with, or whatever situation you might think is unfair. So please do not start raging or spamming when you die due to your own shortcoming(s) or request a staff member for a refund. SCHEMATICA PRINT FEATURE You are allowed to use the Schematica mod to recreate a build using its blueprint, but you are not allowed to use its 'Print' feature under any circumstances. Using the printer feature to build farms or participate in our Build Events is also not allowed. Failing to follow this rule will result in a 7-day ban. Do not use the Print feature. Do not use it to build farms. Do not use it to participate in server-hosted Build Events. Disclaimers: It is on the player to familiarize themselves with the rules of the server. Players are also advised to view this thread every once in a while to acquaint themselves with any recent changes or additions to the rules. "I didn't know that it was against the rules." is NOT an acceptable reason or excuse. By playing here, you are consenting to abide by each and every rule mentioned above. Admitting, joking, or pretending to break a rule may result in the same punishment as if you have broken the rule. Punishments may differ from regulations depending on severity, length of action, how it affected the outcome, and other factors concerning the case. Assisting or aiding a player breaking any of these rules may result in the same punishment as if you were caught breaking it. Recent Updates/Changes: October 27th, 2019 - Removed Factions related rules. October 30th, 2019 - Improving simplicity of thread.
