    Global Rules:


    Extremely Severe Offenses:


    Hacked Client/Blacklisted Modification(s)
    [Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    The use of a hacked client is handled seriously as it is restricted of use and overall has the intent to harm the gameplay of other players. To learn more about our blacklisted modifications, click here: https://forums.arcadianmc.com/threads/information-on-allowed-mods.3144/


    Flying In A Non-PvP Zone (Whilst Using A Hacked Client)
    [7 Day Tempban - Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    Using a hacked client specifically for flight is against the rules and will result in a ban under any circumstance. Although the punishment does not fully correlate with Hacked Clients, the punishment severity can lead to a global permanent ban from the ArcadianMC network.


    Server IP Advertising
    [Global Permanent Mute]
    |
    Sending the IP of another server that is not Arcadian in public chat results in a permanent mute from all Arcadian servers.


    Spam Botting
    [Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    Using bots to spam and flood chat is against the rules and each bot will receive a permanent ban from the network.


    DDoS Threats/DOX Comedy
    [Global Permanent Mute]
    |
    Regardless of the circumstance, threatening to DDoS or DOX another player is a serious offence and will result in a permanent mute from the ArcadianMC network.


    Leaking Personal Information
    [Global Permanent Mute]
    |
    Leaking someone else’s personal information without their consent could be extremely dangerous as well as an invasion of privacy. Such an offence is not taken lightly and results in a global permanent mute from the network.


    Use of Macros/Autoclickers
    [1 Day Tempban - 7 Day Tempban - 30 Day Tempban]
    |
    The use of an autoclicker, as well as macros, allows for an unfair advantage over other players and thus will result in a permanent ban from the ArcadianMC network. This includes machines that work for you (mimicking macro software).


    Illegal Duplication
    [Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    Illegal duplications of any form are always permanently bannable. This type of ban is unappealable as it is attempted to ruin the rarity of our server item or crash the economy.


    Charging Back
    [Global Permanent Ban & Permanent Buycraft Ban]
    |
    Such an offence is taken very seriously as charging back was stated as unallowed in our terms of service on Buycraft. The only way to get unbanned is by closing all chargeback cases and providing screenshot proof of you doing so.


    IRL Money Scamming
    [Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    Taking advantage over another player to buy you something costing IRL currency and failing to pay your end of the deal results in a permanent ban from the network.


    Forging Evidence
    [Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    Forging evidence in an attempt to make another player getting punished is completely unacceptable and will result in a permanent ban. This includes using a client to make it look like someone else is hacking or photoshopping a screenshot in a Forums Report.


    Scamming
    [3 Day Tempban - 7 Day Tempban - 30 Day Tempban]
    |
    Scamming on the network is a fraudulent scheme performed by a dishonest individual or group in an attempt to obtain money or something else of value.


    Misleading Profit Shop Signs
    [1 Hour Tempban - 1 Day Tempban - 7 Day Tempban - 30 Day Tempban]
    |
    Intentionally setting up a misleading profit shop in the form of signage will result in a temporary/permanent ban from the network. Your shop will be altered and all signs will be destroyed.


    Inappropriate IGN
    [Appeal Once Changed]
    |
    Having an inappropriate IGN is not only taken seriously but also results in the denial of access permanently in the form of a ban. We aim to keep ArcadianMC a child-friendly server, so breaking this rule is not the best way to expose yourself.


    Inappropriate Skin
    [Appeal Once Changed]
    |
    Displaying an inappropriate skin is not only unethical but also results in the denial of server access permanently in the form of a ban. We aim to keep ArcadianMC child-friendly and breaking this rule is completely wrong.

    Inappropriate Cape
    [Appeal Once Changed/Removed]
    |
    Displaying an inappropriate cape on your in-game player is against the rules and will result in an immediate permanent ban until the player decides to make an alteration or remove it.

    IRL Trading
    [Punishment Decided by Administration Based off of Transaction Severity]
    |

    Griefing
    [7 Day Tempban - 3o Day Tempban - Global Permanent Ban]
    |
    Griefing or destroying another player’s hard work is completely unacceptable and will result in a ban from the network. This can include simple things such as breaking someone's spawners and leaving them to be cleared by clearlag, or it can be entirely destroying someone's island and pouring lava all over it.


    Bug/Glitch Abuse
    [Punishment Depending On Bug]
    |
    Abusing a bug on the network is completely unacceptable and almost always will result in some sort of ban from the network. Common punishments include a 7 Day Tempban, 3o Day Tempban, or Global Permanent Ban. Please report all bugs/glitches here: https://forums.arcadianmc.com/forums/bug-reports.9/


    Lying To Staff
    [Punishment Decided In Accordance To Lie]
    |

    [Warning - 15 Minute Tempmute - 30 Minute Tempmute]
    |
