Universal

These rules apply to all servers, including the subreddit, mumble server, IRC channel and forum where applicable

  • Don't be a dick (the staff reserves the right to mess with dicks...in a completely asexual and extremely self-depriving yet generous way)
  • No sexism, racism, homophobia or any type of hate speech, especially targeted at specific users.
  • Please respect all players. Blatant harassment of the staff, or any one else, can result in a kick or a ban.
  • You are responsible for your own account. If your account is used by someone else for griefing the server in any way, it will be banned. Please do not message the moderators with the excuse that someone else used your account. We have no way to verify this, and as such, it will not be tolerated as an excuse.
  • Players blatantly using modifications to change gameplay may be asked to stop, kicked, or banned with little warning. This includes, but is not limited to: noclip, invincibility, speed, and duping hacks.
  • No griefing, including but not limited to: destroying blocks placed by other players, flooding structures, spamming items, leaving inappropriate signs on others’ structures, destroying plants (none of these apply to chaos)
  • No "grief-baiting". This means that players cannot try to get other players in trouble by tricking/forcing them to destroying structures in an attempt to get the player warned or banned. This will fall under our umbrella "Don't be a dick." rule and will (if abused enough) result in a ban.
  • No attempts to circumvent any protections on the server, including but not limited to the server script, LWC(Chest protection), WorldGuard(Block protection), and GriefAlert. Attempts to do so without permission will result in a ban without appeal.
  • Invisible or glitched players may have their data reset without warning.
  • No sharing of illegal content.
  • No trolling in chat (Don’t spam the chat with useless twaddle)
  • If you are banned under one account you cannot play on other accounts on the server while the ban is still in effect. Caught playing on alt accounts while your main account is banned will result in your alt accounts being permanently banned.
  • Any rules placed at spawn on the servers supersede the rules here as they will generally be more up-to-date.
  • No offensive or inappropriate skins. Failure to change when asked by a mod will result in a ban until it is changed.
  • No NSFW constructions (e.g. giant phallic buildings).
  • Absolutely no impersonation of staff members.
  • No advertising of non-nerd.nu servers.

Banning policy

  • In most cases, an attempt at establishing communication will be made prior to a ban. However, during certain times the server can be very busy, and depending on reason for the ban, you may not be warned. In situations where the player is significantly changing the game environment, they may be banned without any warning.
  • You may appeal bans by following the appeals process at: http://nerd.nu/appeal
  • If you are banned, please do not make a subreddit post or it may be removed & ignored.
  • Lifting bans is done entirely at the discretion of the mods / admins, and conditions may be imposed if a ban is lifted.

Chaos

General

  • No rules, except the universal server rules (minus griefing). No hacking or client mods, specifically.
  • Admins reserve the right to clean up anything making the game unplayable, including making spawn inescapable by any means.
  • The map should be considered volatile and may potentially be reset at any time

Banned Items

  • None

Creative

General

  • All MCPublic universal rules still apply.

Banned Items

  • Water
  • Stationary water
  • Lava
  • Stationary lava
  • TNT
  • Fire
  • Monster Spawner
  • Ice
  • Portal
  • Flint and Steel
  • Sulphur
  • Bucket
  • Water bucket
  • Lava bucket
  • Bows
  • Snowballs
  • Boat
  • Storage Minecart
  • Powered Minecart
  • Fishing Rod
    • If you would like any of these items, you can ask a mod or an admin to place them for you.

PvE

General

  • All MCPublic universal rules still apply.
  • No killing or trapping other players in any manner except in clearly marked PVP arenas. Only reasonably sized arena style (think spleef arena) builds are eligible to have PVP enabled. Enabling PVP will be done on a case by case basis, entirely at the discretion of server admins.
  • Do not leave large numbers of items on the ground from mining, farms, grinders, etc. This is detrimental to the performance and stability of the server.
    • Grinders and automatic farms should be protected and must have an incinerator (destroys drops when no one is using, like cactus or lava)
  • The map should be considered open for exploration. Players are not allowed to completely block off large sections of the map. Access to land and buildings should not be "restricted". Anything can be explored by anyone. Rare exceptions include structures such as private animal farms.

Structures

  • Don't build very close to other players' structures; be sure to leave some space. Buildings that violate this rule may be moved to a new location without warning.
  • If you have a large project such as a city or megabuild, expand in directions that do not come into conflict with other players. Exhaust all available unopposed routes before expanding near already established players. If you must expand in the vicinity of other players, speak with them first and see if they are willing to participate in your project. Leave signs, /mail send, or /msg them in chat. If you are unable to come to an agreement, contact a moderator for assistance.
  • Scaffolding, 1x1 towers, and other temporary builds should be removed as soon as no longer needed. Such structures may be removed by moderators at any time.
  • Be respectful of the map and do not mar the experience or view for other players. Certain “very low quality” structures including but not limited to cobble/netherrack boxes, floating skyrails, and abandoned incomplete builds may be removed if they significantly impact the surrounding area in a negative way. Such removal will be done entirely at the discretion of server admins.

Nether/End

  • All server rules still apply in the Nether and End.
  • The End should be considered stable and will likely not be reset during any particular map revision.
  • The Nether should be considered stable and will likely not be reset during any particular map revision.

Protections

  • Protections exist solely to prevent grief and other unauthorized edits.
  • Protections are not used for "claiming land." Mods will only protect builds (houses, rail, farms, etc.) and clearly established large projects, such as cities. Requests to protect empty land or to protect a very large buffer around a structure will be denied.
  • Protections generally will cover the entire area above a structure (to sky limit) and about 10 blocks below the lowest floor.
    • We will not protect to bedrock unless your structure extends down that far. Underground resources are considered to be public property. Mines, drop shafts, etc., will not be protected.

Banned Items

  • TNT (mods will not place)
  • Flint and Steel - Make a /modreq to request fire
  • Water and lava buckets only place static liquid. If you need water or lava made to flow, please make a /modreq. Mods and admins reserve the right to deny flowing water or lava.
  • Redstone mechanisms, dispensers, and pistons may be removed at moderator discretion; abuse of these (lag inducing, player traps, etc.) may result in a ban.
  • Portals - players may not build or light portals. Official portals are provided at spawn and in the wilderness.

Hacking

  • No attempts to circumvent any protections on the server, including but not limited to the server script, LWC(Chest protection) and WorldGuard(Block protection). Attempts to do so without permission will result in a ban without appeal.
  • Players using modifications to change gameplay may be asked to stop, kicked, or banned with little or no warning depending on the severity of the situation. This includes, but is not limited to: flying, speed modifications, xray/ore-detection, player radars, and duping hacks.
  • No use of bugs or exploits to gain an advantage over other players (eg: item duping).

Survival

General

  • Don't be a Dick
  • All MCPublic universal rules still apply.
  • Any rules placed at spawn on the servers supersede the rules here as they will generally be more up-to-date.
  • You are responsible for your own account. Anything that is done on your account will be viewed as done by you, and will be treated as such.
  • Invisible or glitched players may have their data reset without warning.
  • No griefing, including but not limited to:
    • Destroying blocks placed by other players.
    • Placing blocks on other player’s structures.
    • Flooding structures.
    • Leaving inappropriate signs on others’ structures.
    • Destroying crops without replanting.
  • No "grief-baiting". This means that players cannot try to get other players in trouble by tricking/forcing them to destroying structures in an attempt to get the player warned or banned.
  • No attempting to place or use banned items (List of banned items below).
  • No ban evasion via the use of other accounts.
  • Please don’t complain about lag or server restarts. It’s a fact of life, our technical admins are constantly working to smooth the experience, and repeated complaints get annoying.
  • Do not spam chat or abuse commands.
  • No advertising of non-nerd.nu servers.
  • No NSFW constructions (e.g. giant phallic buildings, swastikas).
  • Admins reserve the right to resolve land disputes in a manner they deem appropriate.
  • Within 500 blocks of spawn, please do not create:
    • Mob Grinders
    • Auto-harvesting Farms
    • Redstone Loops
  • No sharing of illegal content
  • Absolutely no impersonation of staff members.

Banned Items

  • Fire (Flint and Steel).
  • Water and lava buckets only place static liquid. If you need water or lava made to flow, or fire placed please make a /helpreq.
    • Mods and Admins reserve the right to deny flowing water or lava.
  • Portals
    • There are several public portals available for player use, including several "hidden" ones. Clues can be found around nerd.nu and the subreddit at www.reddit.com/r/mcpublic

Hacking

  • No attempts to circumvent any protections on the server, including but not limited to the server script, LWC(Chest protection) and WorldGuard(Block protection). Attempts to do so without permission will result in a ban without appeal.
  • Players using modifications to change gameplay may be asked to stop, kicked, or banned with little or no warning depending on the severity of the situation. This includes, but is not limited to: flying, speed modifications, xray/ore-detection, player radars, and duping hacks. Only client modifications on the List of approved client mods may be used.
  • No use of bugs or exploits to gain an advantage over other players (eg: item duping).

Social

  • Please respect all players. Harassment of the staff, or any one else, can result in a kick or a ban.
    • Although bad mouthing and trolling is a port of the survival server experience, excessive direct verbal(textual) attacks against a person will not be tolerated.
  • No sexism, racism, homophobia or any type of hate speech.
  • No offensive or inappropriate skins. Failure to change when asked by a mod will result in a ban until it is changed.

PvP

  • Players are allowed to make a small number of temporary edits for the purpose of gaining access to other players’ bases, such as for PvP or exploration. However, all such edits must be fixed immediately; this rule does not justify any form of griefing or base modification.
  • No spawn camping.
  • Using login as a function of PvP is not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Logging off while engaged in combat.
    • Relogging to gain an advantage such as invulnerability for PvP or to prevent fall damage while being chased.
    • Timing logins to attack players at specific locations.
    • Playing with multiple accounts to give yourself a PvP-related advantage
    • Users who do any of these may get warned by a mod or kicked/banned by an admin.
  • No use of LWC-locked blocks for the purpose of base defense or personal protection. LWC should be used to protect the items within them, nothing else.
  • Anything unlocked may be looted. You are not to take someones unlocked block(griefing), nor lock it, but you may take the contents within.
