    Thank You for your continued cooperation. Please feel free to message me if you believe a rule or punishment needs changing or if you have any questions.

    If you would like a list of malicious and non-malicious hacks, please look at this document:

    If you would like a list of allowed and disallowed mods, please look here:

  2. Is there a list of disallowed mods somewhere?
  3. Will add to malicious hacks then. Thank You for the support!
  4. Racism/Homophobia = 45 minute mute
    Death Threats = 20 minute mute
    So by this logic, saying "you're mom gay" to someone is more than 2x as serious then telling someone to take their life?
    Please explain your logic on making death threats only a 20 minute mute.
  5. This has now been changed, death threats are 45 minute mute.

  7. I don't frequently use it, but I was wondering if there is any particular reason why replay mod would be disallowed? I'm struggling to think of a way you could use it against the server/against another player.
  8. I'm pretty certain it's so you can't go onto other peoples islands and see things which they do not which you to see [EG: Grinders]

    UPDATE: New rules and punishments!
  9. Sounds fair <3 Is it allowed by us other then mods/ helpers/trainees to advise people in chat if the they break any of the rules? Not saying everyone has to, but if it happen any of the mods/helpers/trainees are missing it? :) Just so it is clear to everyone from the start.
  10. If staff are online and you believe they missed it, ask them to deal with the player if rules are broken, if it’s minor you can obviously ask the player to stop etc if staff are online. If staff aren’t online advise the players to stop and if they continue then get staff attention on discord for a staff member to come online and deal with the players.

    Hope this is clear and helps you out!
