Factions rules and punishments breakdown!

Spamming /f commands
Such as invite, disband, make faction, so forth. This is done to simply aggrivate the staff and public as such commands like disbanding and so forth are visible to the public, therefore it’s considered spam in a sense when they do it non stop.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Warning
Second Punishment┃Kick
Third Punishment┃1 day tempban
Fourth Punishment┃7 day tempban

Logging out while combat tagged is strictly forbidden
This is where a player logs out while combat tag is active and for some reason the plugin itself doesn’t auto kill them like it should, this can happen for any number of reasons and is punishable if they go to hub or spawn or wherever to avoid being killed while combat tag is active.
Punishments:
First Punishment | 1d Tempban
Second Punishment | 3d Tempban
Third Punishment | 7d Tempban

Threatening to hack someone is not allowed.
This is where players threaten to hack one another’s accounts, be it social media or Minecraft account.
Punishments:
First punishment | 30d ban
Second punishment | Perm ban

Misuse of Report and Helpop
This is where players waste staff time by using the plugin for no valid reason. (ex: saying “Hey staff members I don't need help I just want to tell you that I like chicken”)
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Warning
Second Punishment┃Kick
Third Punishment┃1 day tempban
Fourth Punishment┃7 day tempban

Nicknames/Igns that are disrespectful towards staff
This is where the players change their ign or nickname to be offensive towards staff or disrespectful. Ex: Diwynisafag, Uniisshit So on and so forth. They can dislike a certain staff all they like but they can go resolve their beef in dm or keep it to themselves, No need to display to the whole server about it.
Punishments:
Mute until it’s changed.

Staff Impersonation
This is where a player will use a nickname or such to impersonate staff and or lie to players saying they are staff when they are in fact not staff. It is not tolerated, staff are chosen to do their jobs and players should not impersonate them and mislead the public.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Warning
Second Punishment┃3 hour tempmute
Third Punishment┃3 day tempban

Staff Disrespect
This is a variable topic as this is factions and most things need to be taken with a grain of salt. However players don’t need to go overboard with their hatred of staff for doing their jobs. They’re entitled to be angry or whatever pleases them, however if they do go too far, it is punishable. Only punish them if they go too far with it.
Example: Ace is a fucking cunt
Punishments:
First Punishment┃1 hour tempmute
Second Punishment┃1 day tempban
Third Punishment┃6 hour tempmute
Fourth Punishment┃12 hour tempmute

Server Hate
This more or less directs to a player being incredibly abrasive and rude towards the server in general. It doesn’t regard them for saying it’s laggy. More or so if they do not stop talking shit about the server.
Example: This server is shitty, nothing ever gets fixed.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Warning
Second Punishment┃1 hour tempmute
Third Punishment┃1 day tempmute
Fourth Punishment┃1 week tempmute

Using scripts
This means they are using a script to do things without them needing to manually do it, as in build cactus farms or so on and so forth. This isn’t allowed as it provides far too much advantage. Using it for sell hand/sell all is not allowed.
Punishments:
First punishment | 7 day ban
Second punishment | 14d ban
Third punishment | Perm ban

Insiding
This is where a player takes things from a faction without permission, or lets another faction inside the base without legally breaching them with a cannon or so forth. Insiding is not allowed as it takes the challenge out of breaching a base. For a ban to be issued, enough value has to be taken to actually do the faction harm. A few books or diamonds do not count, a set of gear doesn’t either. Clearing out their balance or spawner room does count for sure. If you’re unsure if it counts, ask.
Punishments:
First Punishment | 30 d ban
Second Punishment | Perm ban

We have a list where the allowed mods are located on forums for player viewing. Here it is for you so you know that if they have one and are using it on Decimate, that they are to be punished.

Advertising
This is where players post direct ips to other servers in attempt to gain players to that server and take them away from ours. Usually bots do this but regardless they are to be banned. Saying a server name isn’t punishable.
Example: Let’s go play Mineplex. ← This is allowed.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Perm ban

Unsafe Links / Phishing
Players will post links to ip grabbers and the likes now and then in attempts to get someones ip, to either dox them or ddos them afterwards. We do try our best to protect the playerbase and prevent this. Therefore if it’s done, punish the player, clear the chat. Not every player is capable of noticing such alink and will click it without knowing what it is.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Perm ban
Second Punishment | Ip Ban

Lying to Staff
More often than not, players will make up utterly bogus stories to explain their actions. Be they got hacked and were hacking, their sibling did it, the cat ran across the keyboard. Not all of them need a punishment but if they really go way far out of the way to waste your time for nothing, they deserve punished as a reminder to simply tell the truth and let it be at that.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃7 day tempban
Second Punishment┃14 day tempban
Third Punishment┃30 day tempban
Fourth Punishment┃perm ban

IRL Scamming
While scamming in general is allowed on factions, we do not allow the playerbase to rl scam people. This being player a gives player b x amount of items or in game money for a rank bought for them off buycraft. These types of deals must be finalized and completed. Otherwise it’s punishable. If they are attempting to sell a gift card, they can do it elsewhere as this is not the place to sell it unless they are trading it for in game items/money.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃perm ban
Second Punishment┃perm ban

Duping
Most of the dupes are patched however now and then one comes up that needs to be figured out and offending players banned. This is where they duplicate items and gain unfair advantage.
Punishments:
First Punishment┃Perm ban

Abusing a Glitch
This generally means a bug found in the server that is exploited. Be it printer bugs, shop bugs, it’s not allowed. They need to report it so it gets fixed as soon as possible. If it’s a block glitch and someone dies due to it, it’s a 3 day ban for first time then 14 for second offense. If they abuse a shop glitch that’s known about, then it’s a much harsher punishment.
Punishments:
First Punishment| 3-30d tempban Depending on Severity of the glitch.
Second Punishment | 30d tempban
Third Punishment| permban
