Last Updated: 3rd of April 2020
Welcome to CreativeFun, a server dedicated to ensuring that people of all ages and background are able to safely engage themselves in the countless activities available on our server.
In order for that possibility, we need your cooperation in following our few simple, important rules. Please make sure that you read through all of them carefully!
Any incomprehension or confusion regarding our rules is to be brought immediately to staff members. "I didn't know / understand the rules" is NOT grounds for release from punishment.
It is your job to keep up with the rules and to not break them. There will be no excuses of "Oh, but I didn't get a warning." as warnings are given by the jurisdiction of the staff member.
If you do not get muted after 30 days from your previous mute, your mute history will be cleared. This does not apply if you have been permanently muted.
Advertising other servers or websites (through either direct IP addresses, Discord Invites, etc). This is not allowed regardless of whether you do it in global chat, local chat, private messages, mail, signs, books and builds.
We define this as the intentional destruction of another person's build.
Using hacked clients or any modification. Use of any modifications to your game which would give you an advantage in gameplay, combat, building, survival, etc, that others would not have reasonable means of obtaining themselves without said modifications is strictly prohibited. You may be banned for admitting to using hacks or be banned if you are seen using them. Mods such as nuker, plot permissions bypass, fastspeed and fastbreak are examples of harmful hacks/mods.
Builds which violate our server rules such as those showing inappropriate statues, strip clubs, 9/11 builds, concentration camps, slavery, religious/racially offensive builds, cursing, or inappropriate speech, etc.
Nude and/or graphic player skins will result in a permanent ban until the skin is changed.
Usernames which violate server rules will result in a permanent ban until the name is changed. Includes inappropriate speech, cursing, drug references, and advertising other servers. If you are banned for having an inappropriate username you are allowed to use an alt as long as the name does not violate this rule. This also includes impersonating staff via your username, such as changing your IGN to SvperMonis.
Roleplay roles which violate server rules will result in the creator of the roleplay name being banned.
Home names which violate server rules will result in the creator of the /home being banned as well as the home name being removed.
If you have been banned you are not allowed to use another minecraft account to bypass your ban. This will result in the alt accounts being permanently banned and you will also be IP banned.
If you have been permanently muted you are not allowed to bypass your mute through /mail, writing on signs, writing in books, using an alt account, etc.
This will result in a permanent ban. Posting personal identifying information such as phone numbers, full real names [first names may also be punished for decided on a case to case basis], locations, emails, or account passwords without the owner's permission. Information like Minecraft username, forums username, and discord username are exempt as these are not particularly identifying for real-life scenarios and are readily accessible in our community.
This will be seen as an attempt of bypassing the chat filter or trying to hide inappropriate messages from staff and will result in various tempban durations.
We would define this as asking players in chat to message you for a server name or IP. An example of breaking this rule would be "Add me on discord for a minecraft server". This is a form of bypassing the "No Advertising" rule and any form of delivering another minecraft server IP through some other platform will lead to a 7 day tempban.
If you are found to be or reported by the plot owner for making attempts at bypassing a plot deny you will be given a 1 day tempban.
Do not post messages in chat using a large amount of capitals. You are allowed to use a large amount of caps in local chat and /msg.
Any form of spam is not allowed and will be described into different categories below. Chat Spam, Group Spam, Letter/Number/Symbol Spam, Encouraging Spam and Encouraging Tag Spam.
Users advertising skin comps, builds, roleplays, dating centres, etc in global may first be asked to move to /advertising. Continuing to advertise in /global will result in a mute.
This is a child friendly server and as such, you are not allowed to use swear words. This includes acronyms and abbreviations such as ffs, **, stfu and intentionally altered spellings to bypass the chat filter.
Including but not limited to: advertising inappropriate clubs/builds/roleplays, soliciting Inappropriate roleplays, using sexual terms such as the proper names and slang names for genitalia, offensive references to ****s or WWII, etc.

Example would be saying "Hey you guys should start cursing since staff are gone".

Sending links to and/or advertising discord servers or calls is not allowed as we have no control over what happens in them and have had issues in the past with people linking to inappropriate communities. The only exception is advertising the official CreativeFun discord server. You are not allowed to advertise your discord server on signs for your roleplay either.
Giving out links or names to social media accounts such as instagram, tiktok or snapchat for example is not allowed, we have no control over what happens on other social media platforms so for the safety of the community this is not allowed.
Asking players to join their realm, saying "msg to join my realm," etc is a form of advertisement.
Asking someone for a server IP or server site URL in chat.
This is considered as a form of advertising, please refrain from talking about other servers while you are on our server. Saying "anyone wanna play bedwars with me" for example is also not allowed.
Players may not share their phone numbers or addresses on the server or website. This is simply due to a concern for player safety. Sharing others' info (doxxing) is punished by a ban (see above). Players pressuring others for this info may be muted as well.
Telling players you're staff or that you're going to get them muted/banned. This also includes fake mute messages and changing your username to a name that is very similar to a staff members, such as “SvperMonis” - this will result in a permanent ban.
If a player is causing trouble or arguing and a staff member has told them to stop in chat, they will receive a warn. Repeated offences will lead to a mute.
Such as saying "f in chat for user" or "say 123 for roleplay". This does not apply to local chat, advertisement chat or /msg. The first offence will be a warning, with repeat offences being a mute.
Being rude to, and/or disrespecting other players is not tolerated. You will be warned, if you continue after the warn has expired you will be muted. Repeated offences will result in a mute. This also goes for offensive speech. If the sentence is brutal, you will not receive a warning but a straight mute depending on the severity.
If a player is repeating the statement or word that got them muted, or that got another player muted, they will be warned.
