CHAT AND COMMUNICATION RULES
Treat each other as friends, and don't use language or actions that take away from another's gaming experience.
Don't use profanity, racism/discrimination, insults, off-colour topics, or language/anything of similar effect. As we pride ourselves in being a family friendly server that is welcome to all.
Trolling, Spam or Excessive Caps
Chat is for legitimate in-game discussion. Don't post comments that interfere with the conversation.
We do not allow the use of Minechat. This is due to the way we have our ranking system setup (based on playtime) therefore this can be used as an AFK mechanic to keep your account logged in to gain playtime and we feel you should be actively playing. Exception: Staff members in an emergency, not for general use.
Don't post names, IP Addresses, or links for other servers, games/YouTube channels or anything of the like.
English Language Preferred
The majority of our playerbase is English speaking therefore only English in public chat. However, alternative languages through private messaging is totally fine with us.
For Ex-Staff members you have access to ‘Vet Chat’ by using the prefix ‘!’. For Example: !”your text here”
What you say here may be more relaxed due to the more mature players within the rank. This means acts such as mild swearing are permitted, so long as what is said cannot be taken offensively by other players and you respect the wishes and feelings of others. If you are asked to stop, we expect you to do so.
Frequently asked questions can be found in FAQ, read there before asking something.
Use the appropriate channel for what you wish to say, otherwise it will either be ignored or removed.
Do no post pics of people who do not wish to be shown.
If a staff member is online, @ them specifically and not a role. Also, try to contact Mods and Guides before Sr Mods or Admins.
Players who are warned, muted, or banned on the server will have the same punishments applied on discord and vice versa.
A FINAL WORD ABOUT YOUR WORDS
Wabbit Survival is a diverse, friendly Minecraft server. Communicating with your fellow players is an important part of connecting with our community. We are proud to have players of all ages and from many different countries and beliefs. Keep the conversation civil and appropriate for everyone. If you have a disagreement with another player or are uncomfortable with their comments, notify a staff member. Staff have discretion to decide if a player or conversation is inappropriate or disruptive.
NON-CHAT RELATED RULES
We also ask that you be respectful to others in the way you play the game. This includes:
Don't enter another player's area if marked private or if asked to leave. Some players prefer to play on their own or with friends they trust and for some, trust needs to be earned. However, it's fine to ask to be invited to a players home if you want to check out what others have built.
Don't take any item not clearly marked as free or public (Unless if provided permission to do so) even from builds that looked abandoned. It's best if you farm for yourself and gather from generated content within the map provided.
Don't kill other players, their pets/animals, or any name tagged mob. Unless specifically stated otherwise by the other player that owns the pets/animals, or the name tagged mob, or that they want to engage in PvP combat. Players can toggle pvp on/off.
Hacks and Cheating
Don't use hacked clients, mods, bugs, exploits or unintended gameplay mechanics for an in-game advantage. (Including, but not limited to xray, Nodus Client, item duplication etc).
Being Respectful of Other Peoples Builds
Do not build to closely to other people creations or claim land too close to their claim. (Unless specifically given permission to do so by the owner of the build/claim). Also don’t claim abandoned an build for you own as they do not belong to you even if they are not claimed.
Donor Perks and Mob/Player Heads
Gathering player heads is only available to donors. Vanilla mob heads are allowed to be given to players whom are not a donor rank and may be sold/traded, non-vanilla mob heads are allowed to be given to players whom are not a donor rank though they may not be sold. Player heads must not leave the donator that got them from said player. Breaking these rules could result in the withdrawal of donor perks without refund.
As Wabbit Survival assigns ranks based on playtime, any form of AFKing mechanics are against our server rules. This includes any form of AFK machine (Auto fish farm, pushing yourself with pistons), client modifications that prevent AFK kicking, or abuse of in-game glitches and bugs to bypass the AFK kick.
Quite simply put, if you are not playing the game, you should not avoid the AFK kick.
The use of /afk to avoid death or harm is against our server rules.
Unintended Game Mechanics
Anything that is clearly an unintended game mechanic, whether this be due to plugins or due to the game itself, is against our server rules. This includes, but is not limited to, use of /afk to avoid death, duplication, xray through game bugs, obtaining illegal items, etc. However, some actions, such as using elytra to be in a 1x1 block hole, do not cause harm or cause unfair advantage, and will not be punished unless used to do so.
Client modifications that give unfair advantage are against our server rules. While these may not be hacks or cheats, mods such as auto-movement or any mod that gives unfair advantage are not allowed.
Any cosmetic mods, such as better animations and similar mods, are allowed. Schematica is allowed, however the use of printer is not, and using it will result in a ban. Minimap mods are also fine so long as cave mode is disabled.
Attempting to avoid mutes or bans will be considered twice as offensive as the original offense. In the case of a ban, specifically with using an Alt-Account, the original account will receive double the ban time and the Alt-Account will receive a permanent ban which in most cases will not be given a chance to appeal. Furthermore, IP bans may be issued in this case, which are also not given the chance of appeal.
SHOPPING DISTRICT (Survival Only)
Shop keepers are assigned through our website. Plots are random and cannot be chosen. This is to prevent one group from monopolizing an area. Shop keepers are also allowed to choose between "Item" and "Service". There is nothing against doing both. Simply select "Item" and then add a service after.
The maximum number of shop chests you can make will vary with your rank. The default is 8, Trailblazer gets 16, Exalted gets 24 and Master gets 32.
Players can add people to their shop to help build and manage inventory. Players who are added will be considered equal owners to the staff and if they take something they were not meant to from the stock or payments, we will not do anything to correct it. Be careful who you add!
Undercutting players in shop sales is considered rude and spiteful, so do not actively undercut players who might lower their price or match yours.
Selling an item that could be portrayed as another item without specifying which it is will result in a warning. Examples of this is are Enchanted Books, Spawners and Potions. If this warning is not followed within a week your shop will be removed.
Shop Keepers may advertise themselves openly in public chat and our discord once. Beyond this will be considered spam unless a significant change has occurred at the shop to warrant the discussion.
Gambling on our server is not allowed to be advertised on the server and is not to be done in the shopping district. This includes "lotteries" in which player put in a small amount to possibly win items or a random item. It is still gambling at the end of the day.
Failing to follow these rules will result in the removal of your shop and possibly further action.
Banned items from being sold are: Dragon Egg, TNT, Obsidian, Non-Vanilla Spawners. (Donors: Non-Vanilla Heads + Player Heads)
Players should always be courteous to shop owners. This means that if someone is selling something you might need, only buy what you need, as actively buying peoples items just to buy them out ruins the experience for other players. This also means if someone is out of stock and you wish to purchase more, send them a polite mail asking them to restock and leave it at that.
Buying items just to sell them at a higher price is also against the rules. This only applies to the exact items that were bought.
Refunds are not required and are left to the owner of the shop to decide. The only time this is not a case is when a specific item like enchanted books, spawners or potions are not explained on a sign.
Membership in Wabbit Survival is free and open to everyone -- we welcome all players with a genuine interest in Friendly Survival Multiplayer Minecraft. However, membership here is a privilege. We ask that you respect our community and follow our rules; failure to do so will result in your privileges being suspended.
You are responsible for knowing, understanding and following our community's rules. If you are unsure whether something is against the rules, ask a staff person before you do it. You are responsible for all activity on your Minecraft account. If your friend, brother, parent or someone else causes your account to be banned, take it up with them.
IF YOU SEE ANOTHER PLAYER BREAKING THESE RULES, PLEASE INFORM A MEMBER OF STAFF
The members of staff on the server consist of four tiers: Guides, Moderators, Senior Moderators and Admins. All members of staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have or to listen to what you have to say.
If you have any issues or aren’t sure about the rules feel free to ask a member of our staff team (Our Team) as they are there to help.
Anyone that breaks the rules will be provided a warning but if fail to start complying with the rules will be issued with a temporary/permanent ban by a member of staff.
Staff have the ability to rollback grief or stolen items but we will only do so if it is inside a land claim so make sure you claim your base/builds.
Breaking the server rules and not following warnings/instructions by members of the staff team will ultimately end up in either a Temp Ban or a Permanent Ban.
Both types of bans may be appealed under the “Ban Appeal” section on the forum and will be reviewed by a member of staff. However, there is no guarantee of the ban being lifted. IP bans are not given the luxury of an appeal.
Donators accept when donating that should they be banned, their subscription will not be refunded or paused for the duration of the ban. You agree to subscribe to us for the set time and this will not be changed.
