    ✸ Spam

    Spamming the chat with 3+ messages within a few seconds.
    Spam can also be considered sending the same message pretty regularely.

    NOTE: On our store we sell the privledge to bypass our chat cooldown - This does not mean you are allowed to spam.
    Spamming is annoying, causes chaos and is just straight up unnecessary.

    Any type of spam is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Language

    GoliCraft is an international network, which means you're allowed to speak the language you want,
    however, we do ask kindly that you speak English in the chat to make new players feel welcome,
    since English is one of the top spoken languages in the world.

    Also regarding language, we expect you to behave and speak clean. No swearing will be tolerated,
    GoliCraft is for everyone, including younger players, and therefore we will not allow swearing to any extent.
    Stuff like suicial encouragement will not be tolerated at all, not even hinting towards something like that is allowed.
    You will be punished for such, no matter what, same goes for threaths.

    Any type of bad behavior, foul language, suicidal encouragement and threaths is prohibited and punishable.

    or you must have been allowed to by senior staff member or above.

    You are allowed to advertise for plots, gangs, auctions & playershops.

    ✸ Compliance

    In form of support and chat guidance, we expect you to comply. This means we want you to behave properly,
    and make it easy for us to help you with your problem. It is way easier for us to help you when you actually comply.
    Furthermore, not complying in support etc. can lead to punishments.

    All we ask for, is that you comply in support, may lead to punishments if you do not.

    is exactly the same. You will still be punished.

    ✸ Innapropriate/Disturbing Content

    You should be able to use common sense and understand what is propriate to send and what is not.
    GoliCraft is a community where all age groups should feel safe to chat, speak and communicate on any of our platforms.
    Sending of obviously innapropriate or disturbing content is not allowed, such as NSFW & GORE content etc.
    Same goes for your usernames, skins and avatars - we expect them to be clean.

    Any sending of innapropriate/distrurbing content is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Innapropriate/Phallic Builds

    Building of phallic images and innapropriate buildings etc. is not allowed.
    As said multiple times in this thread, "GoliCraft is a community where all age groups" should
    feel safe to move around without seeing anything disturbing or phallic.
    Simply said, keep your builds clean.

    Any type of innapropriate/phallic builds are prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Team Griefing / Grief

    Ruining the gameplay for your team mates in any way is not permitted.
    Same goes for helping the oppsite team to weaken your team or make them lose.
    Only exception is if your WHOLE team has allowed it, and you're all agreeing to it.

    Grief on survival or OpPrison is not allowed at all. No form for grief is allowed, this involves
    stealing, raiding and/or breaking homes/plots.

    Any type of team griefing is not permitted and is punishable unless you all agree to it.

    ✸ Trolling

    Trolling in the instance of impersonating another player is not allowed in any way.
    Same goes for trolling in the sense of trying to make a player quit their game, either
    by telling them to ALT+F4 or making them close their game in any other way.

    Any type of trolling in the instance of impersonating or getting a player to close their game is not allowed and is punishable.

    ✸ Advertise Command (/ad)

    We're going to make this very clear. There has been a lot of confusion regarding this command and what it is for.
    The advertise command is not for media advertisement, it is for advertisement such as for plot shops, auctions, coinflips etc.
    To advertise media you have to either have a media rank or permission from a senior staff member or above.
    Advertising through the advertise command may be treated the same as normal advertisement, depending on the situation.
    Media advertisement via. the command may lead to an instant punishment, but if you're lucky, you may get a warning before the punishment.

    Any type of media advertisement through the advertise (/ad) command is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Report & Support

    First, let's start of by making you all aware of the difference between the two commands.
    /report is for reporting players who you believe is breaking a rule, most oftenly cheating by using an illegal modification, but also for other occasions.
    /support is for any problems you are having which you need resolved by a staff member. You're allowed to use /support for asking questions,
    resolving problems etc. We would prefer that bugs and suggestions are sent to us either via. the forums
    or our Discord server, as we will always have the message there, and it is most likely not going to be forgotten about.

    Abusing our support or report system is prohibited and punishable. We have previously been kind by not being to sensitive about it,
    but the abuse of the two commands causes a waste of time for our staff members and will no longer be tolerated.

    Any type of abuse of our support/report system is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ TeamSpeak: Recording Conversations

    We no not allow recording of conversations unless everyone in the room is aware and has allowed it.
    Recording conversations for proof or evidence of a rule being broken is fine, but then the evidence
    shall not be shared with anyone else than members of the staff team.

    Recording conversations without everyone else's permission is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ TeamSpeak: Soundboard Usage

    The rule for soundboards goes the same as the rule for recording conversations.
    We do not allow the use of soundboards unless everyone in the room has allowed it.
    We do not, however, allow ear raping and disturbing content via. soundboards.
    Soundboards must follow all rules above and below - what you say via. a sound
    board is on your cape, and you are expected to still follow all rules when using it.

    The use of soundboard without everyones permission or for ear raping/disturbing content is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ TeamSpeak: Support

    When joining support on our TeamSpeak server, you agree that you are still expected to follow all of our rules.
    We can punish you whenever we feel like you've broken the rules or gone too far, and thereby deny support from you via. TeamSpeak.
    Compliance is an important aspect of support, and it is much easier for us to talk to you when you actually comply.
    Furthermore, bad behavior in TeamSpeak support will not be tolerated.

    Any type of bad behavior in TeamSpeak support is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Discord: Recording Conversations

    Almost the exact same rules for recording conversations on TeamSpeak goes for Discord;

    We no not allow recording of conversations unless everyone in the room is aware and has allowed it.
    Recording conversations for proof or evidence of a rule being broken is fine, but then the evidence
    shall not be shared with anyone else than members of the staff team.

    Also, recording screenshares is not allowed unless everone in the room is
    aware and has allowed it, or if it is for proof or evidence of a rule being broken,
    but then again the evidence is only to be shared with staff members only.

    Recording conversations or screenshares without everyone else's permission is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Discord: Ghost Pinging

    Ghost pinging - removing your ping (@) after tagging someone, will not be tolerated to any extent.
    This is simply just annoying and unnecessary, and we see no point in doing this unless you actually
    have a good reason to supply us with. Keep in mind that we have logs, and we can check and easily see ghost ping action happening.

    Any type of ghost pinging is prohibited and punishable.

    ✸ Discord: Direct Message Advertising

    Advertising via. direct messages through the GoliCraft Discord server will not be tolerated.
    You can tell if the user comes from our Discord by checking their profile and then navigating
    to Mutual Servers. If GoliCraft is the only or one of the only servers on that page, the user
    is likely messaging you through the use of our Discord.

    Any type of direct message advertising through GoliCraft is prohibited and punishable.
