Rule changes - February, 2018

Postby SpartanPride7 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 8:22 pm

Hey, a few rules have been edited and added that I would like to share with everyone so we are all aware of them:

  • Firstly a new rule has been added to the bottom of the Special Rules Page:

    Glitches

    If there is a glitch with a plugin or aspect of the server that can lead to an unfair advantage for a player, report it immediately to staff. If it is not reported and instead abused for ones benefits, the player will be banned based on the duping punishment.

  • The illegal PVP ban time has been changed to 5 days, previously it was 14. The new rule is as follows:

    PvP without explicit permission from a staff member:
    5 days of ban per killed player, unless the victim does not want to press charges.

  • The duping punishment has been changed to a fixed ban time:

    Duping:
    A 1 month ban, and the player loses all their items, property, and money.


    Now, if you accidentally dupe (duplicating an item caused by a glitch) and report it to staff immediately, you will not be charged with duping. It is only when it is done intentionally that one will be banned for it.

  • The city rules were changed to make it more clear on what an illegal private city is:

    Every privately owned city (a place in the wilderness where multiple plots or buildings are sold to people, where custom rules apply to the properties) has to be approved by the government before it can open.


    has been changed to:

    Every privately owned city (a place in the wilderness where multiple plots or buildings are sold to people) has to be approved by the government before it can open.


    Before this edit was made, no city technically had to get approved to sell plots. This rule edit means that one does need to get the city approved in order to sell plots within it.

  • Lastly a line was added to the Common Sense Rule:

    If you're aware of another player breaking the rules, also report it to a staffmember immediately.


If there are any questions or comments about these rules, feel free to post them here.

Thanks for updating these, i feel most will do good on HM.

I do take issue with the private city approval rule change though. If i want to sell my friends a few houses in the wild next to mine, i shouldn’t need to get that approved

I think it's very light. The ban is a good time for such malicious activity... I don't know why it'd be considered harsh considering it is technically hacking in a way.

I wonder why you didn't suggest that when you were a staffer... Oh well.

Doesn't matter the quantity,the rule broken is the same: duping.The ban time is the same for all quantities unless you made it by an accident and report it to staff.

Good job with the rules improvement @Staff,hope there are more to come and cover other sections/update the rules.
