You will be punished for whatever rules your account breaks. Saying that someone else did something on your account will never be accepted as an excuse.

You can still be punished for things that are not explicitly stated in the rules.
Using an alternate account to evade a punishment is NOT allowed.
There are no refunds given after donating to the server.

Player traps fall under griefing and scamming; They are not allowed, you’ll be banned if we catch you building one on the server - even if it’s not in a public place.
- Cheating the AFK Kicker or using a AFK farm/grinder that requires no attention to the game and prevents you from being kicked (e.g. AFK fish farm) is NOT allowed
We have the AFK Kicker enabled for a reason, it isn’t there to be pretty.

Please put droppers on hoppers used for transport and don’t build unnecessary things.

15 hoppers/2 minecart hoppers per farm.
Use water streams to transport items more efficiently.
- All farms MUST have an on/off switch. No exceptions.
Can’t build a farm that can have an on/off switch? Not allowed on the server, then.
Leaving your farm unattended and running will result in it being deleted. Always turn it off when you’re not using it.
- 1×1 block holding chamber only for xp farms, no larger.
Unless required. (Spiders are 2×1×2, for example)

No soul sand or magma blocks inside your Guardian farm.
Max size of 25×25 block spawn size for your Guardian farm.
Slime farms can be NO bigger than 2 chunks.
