MCCentral Rules // Official

On MCCentral we want everyone to have the best experience possible. There are some rules and limitations that the staff team has made to help keep everything fair for everyone. Our server rules may be found below. Please remember that our rules are not limited to everything listed below! Use good common sense and you will be fine.

Punishment Types
MCCentral categorizes all punishments into three main categories: Chat, Gameplay and Client Modification Offenses. There is also a category called Miscellaneous Punishments which outline punishments that don’t fall into the normal punishment severities. In-game offenses will be listed under these three categories below. Each punishment category has three sub-categories called a severity. The higher the severity, the longer the punishment. Also, the more of one type of severity you receive, the longer the punishment.

Other punishment types include:
Warning: You will receive an in-game text warning.
IPBan: Your IP Address will be banned.
Faction Warning: Issued when you break one of the faction rules (more info at the bottom of this thread)
