PrimeGames Rules and Regulations

PrimeGames’ rules MUST be followed at all times. Infractions on any of the PrimeGames services, whether it be servers, websites, Discord channels, or any other service, can affect and/or ban a user from any and all other services.


Communicate Respectfully

PrimeGames strives to be a family server that is welcome to all. Always be respectful and civil towards other players.

Hate speech, bigotry, discriminatory, racist, homophobic or sexual remarks are not permitted. This includes but is not limited to discrimination by ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or creed.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Inappropriate IGNs

Racism, Discrimination, Sexual, and Derogatory Remarks, Impersonating staff, or words that are typically filtered on PrimeGames are examples of IGN's not welcome here. If a player is seen with an inappropriate IGN, they will be banned until they change their name and an appeal is submitted, reviewed and approved by staff.

1st Offense results in a permanent ban until name is changed and verified.

Continued offenses could result in a permanent ban of all main and alternate accounts from any and all PrimeGames services.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Respect Staff Authority

Most PrimeGames staff are volunteers that are chosen to ensure that the server environment is healthy. If you choose to disrespect or ignore them, you risk sanctions. When you are being corrected or instructed by staff, make sure to listen and follow all directions.

If you feel you are being corrected or instructed improperly, document/screenshot/screen record your interactions with staff WHILE YOU COMPLY with what you are being asked to do. Attempting to obfuscate or evade any staff by going AFK or disconnecting is not permitted.

Afterwards, no matter the case, whether verbally warned, muted, temp banned, or permanently banned, you may be able to use the proper forum at the PrimeGames website www.primegames.in to request assistance from higher staff in auditing your sanctions and/or any staff involved, except in the event that gross conduct makes it to higher level staff first and your privilege to use any or all PrimeGames services is terminated.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Sexually Inappropriate Material

PrimeGames is dedicated to offering family friendly services. Sexual gestures and phrases are prohibited. Sexual content is not permitted. This includes but is not limited to profile names, pictures, ASCII art, videos, inappropriate builds, and skins.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Spamming or Swearing

Repeating the same or similar words or phrases, repeated or random characters, writing in all caps, and/or writing a collection of letters for the sole purposes of disturbing and/or annoying others is considered spam and is not permitted. Other forms of spam include, but are not limited to, TPA Spam, faction join spam, and direct message spam.

Asking people to guess a number or phrase, starting hashtags, or otherwise enticing non-game related communication on a large scale is seen as spam and is prohibited.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Hacking or Using Unofficial Minecraft Clients/Texture Packs/Resource Packs

Using unofficial clients, resource packs, and/or texture packs that modify your gaming experience in such a way that you would benefit over the rest of the player base is strictly prohibited.

X-raying or otherwise changing the textures and/or gameplay in any way to gain an unfair advantage is not permitted.

Altering the way Minecraft sends information to the server is not permitted. This includes fly hacking, kill aura, and the like.

Trying to change the information stored in your RAM to affect the gameplay on the server is not permitted.

DDoSing, DoSing, Doxing (publicly or privately sharing personal information including IPs, maintaining other players' IP addresses in lists, attempting to use and/or using someone's likeness,) or threatening to do any of the above, is strictly prohibited.

Swatting (which will result in permanent removal from the server, an IP Ban, and possible legal ramifications) is strictly prohibited.

All accounts on the server affiliated with the account that has broken any of these rules may be subject to sanctions. Factions proved to be knowingly and willingly teaming with hackers and repeat offenders are at risk of sanctions as well which may include a force deletion of their faction.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Ban Baiting

Enticing, baiting, aggravating, or otherwise bribing or probing someone into saying or doing something that will result in a ban is not permitted. Tricking people into performing tasks or saying things that will get them banned is also not permitted.

Engaging in activities that can be considered “ban baiting” by the sole discretion of staff can lead to sanctions for both parties.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Impersonating

PrimeGames will not tolerate the impersonation of any player or staff. This kind of behavior can seem like honest fun but at its core it is very toxic, unhealthy and may even be considered unlawful to engage in such behavior. Impersonating anyone other than yourself or a character you roleplay is strictly prohibited.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Advertising

Advertising, referencing, linking, naming, or otherwise enticing users to play on another server is strictly prohibited.

Advertising, referencing, linking, naming, or otherwise promoting sexually explicit and/or pornographic material is strictly prohibited.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Glitches and Exploits

Using a glitch or exploit within the game to provide yourself, your faction or others an advantage will be reviewed by staff on a case by case basis. Given the nature of servers, plugins, updates, and compatibility, it is virtually impossible to keep on updated list of all glitches or exploits that can be used to gain an unfair advantage.

Due to the volatility of this category, always ask a Helper or a Moderator if you think something is in the grey area. If in doubt, always assume that whatever glitch or exploit you know is not permitted.

In the cases of very serious exploits, the resulting sanction will be a permanent ban. An example of this is item duplication.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Selling In-Game Items and Minecraft Accounts for Real Money

Players are not permitted to sell in-game items, including their Minecraft account, on the server for real money, gift cards, cryptocurrency, other credits, or anything else of value.

Attempting to sell in-game items or accounts is also prohibited. It is not permitted to discuss or plan these transactions on any PrimeGames services.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Real Money Scamming and Chargebacks

Real Money Scamming is when someone promises to purchase a server store item in return for items, money and/or favors in the game. Although gifting of donor ranks and/or items cannot be prevented, scamming someone out of IRL Money results in a permanent ban. Period.

Purchasing donator ranks and/or items for any player other than yourself as a trade for items, money, and/or favors in game is not permitted to be discussed and/or organized on PrimeGames services. Players who agree to this type of transaction are placing themselves at risk. Chargebacks will result in a permanent ban from the server until the funds are repaid.

In the event that you have suffered a permanent ban as the result of a chargeback that occurred for the rank and/or items that were purchased for you, please include your receipt of purchase of rank and/or items with a ban appeal. If staff can confirm you have successfully repaid the amount of the chargeback or more, your ban will be lifted and any and all sanctions resulting of the chargeback will be lifted immediately.

If you receive any ranks or items that you did not purchase, and you do not know how you got them, report the event to staff immediately. If you can notify staff about any unknown purchases, they can remove them from you and prepare for a chargeback in the event that someone was trying to purposefully and willfully have your account banned by doing a chargeback on a gift purchased for you.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Being Muted

Bypassing a mute could result in more severe sanctions against a player’s main and alternate accounts. Wait out your mute and follow the rules.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Undermining the Spirit of the Game

If you participate in actions that are deemed to undermine the spirit of the game, including but not limited to, huge farms that occupy too much space, crash the server, cause significant lag, or undermines the balance intended by the server, huge bases and structures that undermine server stability, making a mockery of any contests or themes, anything that is implied or understood as unintended game play, or just overall the spirit of the game or how the game was intended in it’s family friendly ways, you may be subject to sanctions at the sole discretion of staff.

Punishment will be at the discretion of upper staff. Sanctions may include formal warnings, temporary bans, permanent bans, and/or removal of any builds, farms, claims, factions or the like.

Any offenses considered excessive, consistent, or persistent on the server could result in an IP Ban.

TPA Killing/Trapping, Scamming, Insiding, Betrayal, Thievery, and the Like

Minecraft multiplayer servers can be a game of risk on occasion. Some of the inherent troubles everyone understands may occur are being killed in battle, dying in lava, drowning in water, accidentally throwing your weapon and having it picked up by someone else, and very easy to get over things like that.

When players experience something like a scam where another player promises to trade them an item for money and then doesn’t, they often think it’s something they should report. The same thing goes for TPA Killing and TPA Trapping. It is all a part of the risk inherent in a Minecraft multiplayer server. Always exercise caution when accepting a TPA request.

If someone betrays you after gaining your trust, steals your precious loot from a chest, or otherwise tricks you, it is all a part of the game.

Sanctions will NOT be considered for any action that is a natural part of playing on a Minecraft multiplayer server.


Forum Rules

Every aforementioned rule applies to all PrimeGames services. That includes the server, website, Discord, and the like. Here are more detailed rules specifically for the website forum at www.primegames.in/forums/ which indicate additional expectations we have of player conduct in our family friendly environment.


Toxicity

If you’re going to debate, do it with respect. Making posts that are aggressive towards others is not permitted. If you’d like to share your opinion or banter, do so without breaking any rules. Excessive toxicity, consistently targeting another player, staff, or the server itself, or just overall purposefully trying to create a problem of yourself can result in punishment.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Giveaways

The amount of spam or scamming that can result from someone who decides to do a giveaway is not acceptable. Only PrimeGames staff and officially endorsed players or hosts may run giveaways for players. No one is permitted to run a giveaway, reward system, or any otherwise engaging activity for reward in the PrimeGames forums for any reason or at any time.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Bumping and “Necro-posting”

In the event that a thread or comment hasn’t been responded to or is inactive, do not bump the thread unless necessary.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Don't "Like Farm" or "Like Boost"

Like boosting or farming is prohibited. These activities are considered spam. Please don't ask for "Likes" or make agreements to boost likes with other people.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Alternate Accounts on the Forums

Creating alts for the forum is not permitted except in the event that a player is submitting a ban appeal. If that is the case, staff will handle it on a case by case basis.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Boosting Polls

It is not permitted to create an alternate forums account or to enlist the help of unrelated parties and/or people in your network outside of PrimeGames to boost polls. Polls are used to get an honest appraisal of what the community voice has to say on any particular subject. If you are found to be boosting polls you will be investigated, and staff will handle it on a case by case basis.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Appropriate Font, Size, and Color

It is not permitted to use font that is difficult to read, intended purposefully to annoy players, excessively large or small, and/or outlandishly colorful. Be appropriate.

Sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames staff. Punishments include, but are not limited to, Formal Warnings, Temp Bans, Permanent Ban, IP Ban, and/or any other sanctions deemed appropriate.


Sanctions

Formal Warnings – issued publicly or privately as a first response to minor infractions. When
receiving a Formal Warning, compliance and honesty will prevent you from escalating your sanctions.

Kicks – when a minor infraction is being made by a player and staff cannot get a timely response from a Formal Warning, the current session of the player may be terminated by a Kick. In the event of a Kick, a player is expected to pay attention when they log back in and respond to the staff and acknowledge the Formal Warning before any sanctions are elevated.

Muting – as spamming, hate speech, or otherwise deemed inappropriate communication as described above can be harmful to a family friendly server, a quick Mute will give staff the opportunity to deliver a Formal Warning before anything escalates. Attempts to bypass mutes or continued bad behavior upon expiration of the mute sentence will result in higher sanctions.

Temporary Bans – delivered without warning as a response to a more severe violation. A Temporary Ban will come with a sentence length. Any attempt to evade a ban will result in a minimum of 2 weeks being added to the original ban for all accounts involved. If you have received a ban, an appeal may be requested on the website forums.

Permanent Bans – like Mjolnir itself, the Permanent Ban eradicates your account forever. Any attempts to evade a permanent ban will result in an IP Ban. If you have been permanently banned, an appeal may be made on the website forums.

IP Bans – as if Mjolnir wasn’t powerful enough, a truly devastating ban is reserved for the worst of offenders. IP Bans and IP-range Bans may be handed out at the sole discretion of staff to protect the family friendly and fair gaming environment PrimeGames strives for. If appeals are not possible for you to make on the website forums after this ban and you would like to start an appeals process you will have to contact staff through the Discord channel.


Disclaimer of Rules Not Listed:

These Rules and Regulations cannot possibly hope to cover all instances of conduct that could be deemed detrimental to the servers or community. Staff reserves the right to warn, kick, ban, or otherwise sanction players deemed to be detrimental, as well as the right to form new rules when needed. Admins or higher also reserve the right to IP Ban and/or IP-range Ban any player they see fit to do so to. All sanctions will be at the discretion of PrimeGames’ staff whether listed here or otherwise understood or decided upon at any time for the sole purpose of moderating this community we all know and love.
