DOD Edge Network Rules

These rules apply to anything DOD related! This includes the Minecraft global server network, the website, and the Discord server.
Specific rules about certain areas of the network are listed by themselves below this main post.
If you are unsure about anything, ask!

Rules are subject to common sense. These rules are not comprehensive and use of loopholes to violate the spirit of these rules is subject to enforcement.
Every player is responsible for knowing and following the rules. Ignorance of a rule is not an excuse.

If a staff member comments about your behavior or asks you to stop or change something, you are expected to listen.
If you disagree with the staff member, you may appeal through the website by posting on the forums or directly messaging an Admin or Mod.
Please be sure to include all the information, the time (and time zone) and day of occurrence, and the staff member who was handling the matter.

Obviously breaking a rule is going to warrant consequences, please be aware that you will get those consequences.

Be Respectful
Be respectful to other players and staff. Treat others how you want to be treated! Do not be racist, sexist, homophobic, or rude. Do not intentionally provoke a negative response from someone. Trolling is also asked to be avoided. Don't post or link to anything pornographic, disgusting, gory, or illegal.

Be Ethical
Do not do anything that would give yourself an unfair advantage over any other player. No cheating or exploiting! This is defined as taking any action that is obviously not the way things are intended to function by minecraft or the supporting server plugins.  This includes using any form of Block Glitching as well as block or item duplication.  If you are caught doing any form of cheating, expect to be banned.  Play responsibly. If you find an exploit, inform staff about it! If you are unsure if something is intended behavior, ask an Admin.  Asking an admin about a behavior is not going to get you banned (this does not mean action may not be taken to correct things).  Not asking so you can be sure and doing something unethical will get you banned.  Help us make the server better. You should know what is right, and what is wrong, use your best judgment.

No Hacking or Unapproved Mods
Mods that give you an unfair advantage will not be tolerated! This includes: Flyhack, Everbright (not needing torches), Godmode, Nodus, ET CETERA. If you are not sure if a mod is permitted, just ask a staff member, we will be happy to answer your question or confer with other staff about it! Start by checking HERE to see what we allow and what we don't allow.

Chat Rules
Caps are allowed as long as it is not being excessive. You may use caps for emphasis for a word or two in a sentence. Full sentences of caps is definitely excessive, as is constant short sentences of caps.
Swearing IS ALLOWED as long as it is not being either disrespectful, spammy or excessive.
Explicit sexual references, politics, and religion should not be used in global/general chat.
Please use some common sense about what topics are appropriate in global chat.
Please only use English in Global Chat. This is an English speaking server. You are welcome to speak another language in private messages. (/msg, /w, /tell) This is not to inconvenience our international players, but to ensure that the server remains safe and appropriate at all times.

No Spamming
Spamming can interfere with other players gameplay, and with staff helping players who have server related issues. Do not post gibberish or senseless text, or purposely say the same thing over and over. If you make a mistake in your previous sentence, correct the one word, not the entire sentence again, so it doesn't appear as if you are spamming.
Complaining about everything all the time could be considered spam. (It's okay to complain about one or two things on occasion when you're frustrated)
Posting multiple lines of song lyrics into chat is considered spamming. Instead, maybe link to that song on Youtube for everyone to enjoy (If it is appropriate!)

Do not ask to be made staff, admin, op, etc
We will not give this to you. You will not be granted staff just because you asked for it. If you are truly interested in becoming a dedicated member of our server's team, check out the Staff Applications section of our forum. However, we don't care if you claim to be from PMC, Hollywood, Mojang, or the government, You will NOT be granted any special staff ranks or powers.

No Advertising
Don't advertise on our server, don't advertise on OTHER servers. The best way you can show your support is by voting! If you are found spamming on another server with our IP then you will face consequences. This goes along with the first rule: be respectful. Nobody likes advertising, we don't do it to other people because we don't want them to do it to us.
We have a zero tolerance policy about advertising other servers. This includes their numerical IP, custom server IP, server name, website, and server logos. If you ignore this rule and post other server information, you will be punished.
Commercial advertising is also not advised. The only exception to this rule is advertising something youíre selling in your in-game shop (Just donít spam about it!)

No Begging
Do not beg for anything from staff or other players. Constant repeated begging in general, whether for free items or any other reason will be considered spam.

Alternate Accounts
Having an alternate account is allowed. Make sure you Register your alt account with us so we know who you are! Look on the top bar on the website! Any alt accounts in use that are not registered will be punished. No more than 2 accounts per individual: 1 Main and 1 Alt.
You may Vote on both accounts. To see other specific rules based on which server of the Network you are on, see the appropriate section.

First and foremost, it should follow all the rules.
Have the name make sense, No random collection of letters and/or numbers,symbols, etc. for example, do NOT name your name something like: asojgwpeslj. This also includes the over-use of the format command &k. That would be considered spam.
No potentially offensive or vulgar names. This includes things concerning politics and religion. You will NOT be allowed to try to impersonate another player, especially that of a staff member.
If a staff member asks you to change your name, please listen to them. If you disagree with their decision, please appeal on the forums and include the name of the staff member who asked you to change it. In the case that we agree that it was okay, we would like to be able to pass the word along to the staff member so that more problems won't arise in the future.
Try not to constantly change your nickname, this can be confusing and annoying. Try to settle on a nickname!
Repeatedly abusing this perk and violating the rules concerning nicknames can result in a Tempban and loss of the perk.

AFK/Auto Fish Farms
These machines are not allowed on any server.

Area-specific rules are in the next post:

Forum Rules
Ban appeals are only for the person applying, and for staff, unless you have evidence to post.

Try to put some effort into your replies. If you disagree with someone, say why. If you agree with someone, say why. If you like or dislike something, say why. If you can't be bothered to say why, that's fine, just move on.

Before asking for support, ensure that you read the sticky topics placed throughout the forums. Chances are your query will already be answered and will save staff and members time in answering repeated questions. Try checking the Important Server Information section of the forums, which includes FAQ, Guides, Rules, etc.

Do not multi-post, there is an Edit button. Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages to gain a higher post count, or just to annoy others is highly frowned upon! If it has been 24 hours since your last post, and you've updated the first post of your thread with something important, you may post "Updated the first post" or something along those lines.

Discord Rules
Nicknames - Please use the same username as your in-game Minecraft name, or something very close to it. This is to keep consistency between the game and Discord! So everyone knows who is who. :) Thank you.

Survival Rules
Regarding Griefing, Stealing, & PVP - Griefing and Stealing in areas that are unclaimed IS allowed. PVP is toggle-able with /pvp! Protect your own areas.

Epic Skyblock Rules
No Griefing - Do not modify any structure that you did not build unless it occurred naturally. Do not mess with anything you did not make, create, or build; this includes animals.

Some examples for breaking the "Be Ethical" network-wide rule:
Do not join players' islands to grief and/or steal from them then leave.
Do not kick a player from your island or reset without giving them a chance to get their items loot.

Skyblock Alt Account Rules
If you have 2 accounts, they MUST be on the SAME island! You may NOT have 2 accounts on 2 different islands!
You may not do /dailybonus (/db) on both accounts! This is only allowed for your Main Account.
You may leave one account AFK at your island while you go off with your other account to do other activities.
You may do Dungeons, complete Challenges, and do Quests on both accounts.

Island Warps and Enderpearls
If a player has built an island warp that is meant to be closed off, please respect that player's privacy and do not use enderpearls or any other glitches to exit out of their warp area.

Island Harvesting
While this should fall under Be Ethical and Common Sense, here's an extra section for it to state that this is NOT allowed. "Island Harvesting" is gathering materials off an island, resetting the island, rinse and repeat.

Mob Farms
Mob Farms, Obsidian farms, automated crop farms, and many other automated farms are permitted! If you are unsure about one, ask a staff member!
If your mob farm or any other sort of farm causes extreme lag, you may be asked to remove it, or a staff member will disable it for you.
