Duplicating OR knowingly accepting duplicated gold, money, etc. with an unintended exploit will result,at a very lucky minimum, all of your combined assets, money, and wealth being completely wiped. This includes your personal balance, town bank, and nation bank. Most likely will also result in a ban.

3.0 Griefing

Griefing with the use of Lava, water or lava casts is not allowed. All griefs will be rolled back and you'll be temporarily suspended

3.3 - Major terraforming
Preserving the accuracy of real-world geography, major terraforming of the natural terrain is not allowed. You can terraform land within the borders of the ocean/rivers, but terraforming beyond them changes the resemblance and accuracy. Do not drain large lakes or rivers, create artificial islands or cover the ocean with platforms (ships are okay).

3.4 - Mass killing of peaceful mobs in another person's claims
Mass killing of peaceful mobs in someone else's claims is not allowed,i.e., Villagers, Pigs, Cows, Chicken, etc. You can of course kill whatever you want in your own claims.

4.0 Combat/PVP

4.1 - Engaging in Combat
After you have defeated someone in combat, do not engage in combat with them again unless they engage with you, steal the loot you obtained. It is best to loot and walk away after.

4.2 - Claim Hopping
You are not allowed to run in and out of claims to gain an invincible advantage over others. It is good practice to enable PVP for your whole town during sieges so as not to violate this rule.

4.3 - Spawn Camping
Do not repetitively kill someone after they have spawned in. (See Rule 4.1). Do not wait outside of their base after you have already killed them. Do not use /sethome to teleport back to their lands.

4.4 - Teleport Killing
When offering a teleport to another player or accepting a teleport it is against the rules to immediately pvp the sender or receiver (Groups of both parties included where applicable). If a party wishes to pvp the person teleported they must wait a minute from when the receiver/sender initially accepted the teleport.

4.5 - Teleport Trapping
Requesting a player to teleport to you with intent to trap them is against the rules; accepting a players teleport request into an inescapable or trapped position, that they cannot teleport from, is against the rules. For example, outlawing a player so they are unable to use teleport commands in your town then tping them into a position they cannot escape from will get you banned. Teleporting a player into an interior or closed position that they can escape by movement or command is fair and legal. If they can and do leave via teleport or other commands, no rule was broken. Ensure wherever you teleport someone to, they can exit the premises or use teleport commands.

When creating a town, make sure your name complies with naming rules. Names can be changed by staff members if they're not following the rules.
- Fictional town names are allowed.
- Town names cannot be inappropriate, offensive or toxic.
- Towns cannot have similar names to already established towns, where one could easily be confused with another.

5.2 - Nation Names.
When creating a Nation, make sure your name complies with naming rules. Names can be changed by staff members if they're not following the rules.
- Fictional Nation names are allowed.
- Nation names cannot be inappropriate, offensive or toxic.
- Nations cannot have similar names to already established Nations/Towns, where one could easily be confused with another.

6.0 Reporting and Mod Communication Guidelines

6.1 - Adjudication Authority of Staff Members
Staff members serve as the ultimate authority in matters of rule enforcement. They are not bound by predetermined standards for administering punishments. Their decisions are final. Staff members act as both the adjudicator, determining guilt or innocence, and the arbiter, assigning appropriate sanctions. They are not confined by forum regulations and may exercise discretion in disciplining or abstaining from disciplining individuals, based on any rationale they deem justifiable.

6.2 - Consideration of Context
In evaluating player reports, we place significant emphasis on contextual analysis. The act of rule infringement is examined within the broader framework of the entire incident. If your own actions contribute to a perception of the reported player's behavior as more reasonable or understandable, it may impact the severity of their penalty or result in no penalty at all. Contextual nuances are paramount.

6.3 - Conduct in Reporting and Interactions with Staff
It is imperative that you exhibit respect towards Staff members. Derogatory language, insults, and arguments are strictly discouraged. While Staff members do not assert an air of superiority, we do expect your deference, particularly in a report. Cooperation and respect towards staff are prerequisites. Failure to adhere to these expectations may result in the dismissal of your report, and in severe cases, potential repercussions for you. Display maturity in all interactions.

6.4 - Efficient Utilization of Staff Resources
Staff members are committed to assisting you, provided that your intentions are genuine. Clarity, decisiveness, and adherence to the aforementioned guidelines are indispensable. However, we do not entertain prolonged grievances or disputes concerning other players. Persistent misuse of our time, following a warning, may lead to the dismissal of your report, with potential consequences for you.

6.5 - Prohibition of Entrapment
Instances of provoking others to breach rules, or orchestrating scenarios for reporting purposes, are expressly prohibited. For instance, deliberately creating situations where a rule is violated may result in penalties equivalent to a rule infraction. This practice of resorting to reporting as a means of resolving conflicts rather than engaging in authentic gameplay is viewed with significant disapproval by staff. Context is pivotal in this assessment, and inciting breaches within a specific context is not exempt from scrutiny.

6.6 - Discouragement of Spam Reporting
Refrain from inundating us with multiple reports regarding the same player. If a fellow player or town member has already filed a report, duplicating it is unnecessary. Once a decision has been reached and your ticket closed, please refrain from submitting additional reports on the same matter.

6.7 - Discretion Regarding Discussions on Punishments, Reports, or Rule Violations
Engaging in discussions about punishments, reports, or rule violations with an intention to spread gossip or create an atmosphere of controversy is strictly prohibited. We are committed to fostering a healthy and constructive environment free from toxic exchanges and unfounded allegations.

6.8 - Rule by Law Policy
ConquerEarthMC's, and her service's, administration and staff Rule by Law. Rule by Law is a system of governance where laws are the primary source of authority and legitimacy for the government. Our policy is Rule by Law as opposed to Rule of Law; Rule of Law is a principle of governance where everyone, including the government itself, is subject to the same publicly known and fairly applied laws. Don't confuse the two, Rule of Law has no place here. In the context of ConquerEarthMC and her services, our policy of Rule by Law means that all users are subject to staff. The staff are the server. The staff aren't subject to the law, policy, or rules of the server, they are the rules; staff are the executive, judicial, and legislative. There is no balance of power between the users and staff as existent under the server. All users exist under the adjudication and authority of staff. If you want to challenge a staff member or their decision, you do so by approaching staff again and hoping another member disagrees with the decision as unjust, abusive or unfair; you approach staff with grievances because you have no power or ability to challenge the server and the server as staff. If you anger, annoy, or disrespect a staff member, they as the server can and likely will reject and ban you. Users have not a shred of leverage against staff or server.

6.9 - Staff can do whatever they want
Staff can do whatever they want whenever they want. They are not immune to recourse, demotion, or removal for unjust staff abuse; but this recourse is only actionable after the fact. In the moment, staff have the active right, privilege, and ability to do whatever they want. If you believe a staff member's action was abusive, unjust, or unfair, communicate with another trusted staff member to represent and fight for you. If all the staff agree with an action dealt upon you, and none believe it to be unjust or abusive, if you continue to push persecution and forgiveness for your perceived "abuse," you will be lucky to not get banned as, once again, staff can do whatever they want.

6.91 - Staff as Ultimate and Supreme Authority
Any and all staff members, and their group-roles, can use their respective perms/commands in game, on discord, and on any of Conquer's services against you, anyway they deem fit. Staff act as judge, jury, and executioner. Arguing that a rule was or was not broken is futile, as you have no say in decision-making or determination; whether or not a rule was or was not broken is ultimately up to staff. Staff reserve the right to use their perms/commands against you without reason or proof. Staff can use their authorities against you for any reason not listed under rules. Staff can come up with rules on the fly. Staff can use any of their permissions, commands, abilities, and authorities, such as banning, for any reason including being annoying or showing disrespect. Staff can do whatever, whenever, with ultimate power and authority. Consider ConquerEarthMC and her services an authoritarian dictatorship of the staff; with this being said, if you want to report a member of staff for staff abuse, do so by contacting another trusted staff member as representation.
