1: All Servers.

1.1: Respect All users and staff members.

  • No abusing, bullying or swearing at other users (This includes Private Messaging, Mailing users ingame, Using signs, Using books or on the forums).
  • Co-Operate with all requests from Lolnet Staff (Unless you object, in which case you may post your objection on the forums with a complete explanation of why.
  • No lying to or deceiving Lolnet Staff.
  • If a user asks you to leave their claim, you must do this and give them personal space.
  • No deliberately annoying a user by throwing projectiles at them.
  • No racism of any kind.
  • No sexual harassment, sexism, or sexual references (especially involving other users).
  • Do not repeatedly bug other users, if they say no, they mean no.
  • Do not /tpa spam any player.
  • Staff members will not spawn you items, give you creative or other privileges, promote you without going through the proper application process, spawn mobs for you or give you money. Don’t ask for it.
  • Public chat is an English only chat, foreign languages will be considered spam as it cannot be understood by the general server population. Foreign Languages are allowed in Private Messages between players.
  • Being abusive to other users is not allowed and will not be tolerated.
  • Reporting of other players must be factual and honest. Accusations against staff members are serious and must carry evidence.
  • No offensive symbols.

1.2: If there are no staff on and you need help, make a detailed /modreq.

  • A /modreq is the easiest way to get help. If you need assistance or have a question, be specific in your modreq so we understand what you are helping with. Requests that simply say “help me” or such like may not be dealt with.
  • Do not spam the /modreq command or tell Moderators you have made one. Staff members are notified that you have made a modreq and will respond to them in order of being received as well as priority. Remember, staff members are busy people.
  • After making a /modreq please do not contact staff asking about it. Staff get automatic notices about modreqs and will get to them when they can. We may not have an answer to your problem immediately. Please have patience.
  • If a staff member says no, that means they won’t be doing it. Don’t continue to bug them. Some problems may be known bugs and have to be fixed by a mod developer, or be something else that we cannot fix. In any case, if staff tell you “No”, please don’t argue.

1.3: No spamming chat or commands and no advertising of other servers and websites.

  • Spamming is not allowed. This includes but is not limited to: Repeated characters or words in a sentence; Multiple sending of a same or similar chat message; saying random nonsense; breaking sentences or words up into unnecessarily small parts
  • Spouting nonsense that fills up chat will be classed as spam If you are only talking to one other person, please use /msg and /r to talk. If asked to do this by staff, please do so.
  • Commands may not be spammed including /tpa, or /afk
  • Advertising of other servers or websites linking to other servers may not be done in any way shape or form
  • All content linked in chat must be family friendly
  • Advertising of a shop/service/tradedeal or otherwise must only be done no more than once every 5 minutes.
  • Topics discussed in chat should not contain Religion or Politics.

1.4: The security of your account, and the conduct of your account is your responsibility.

  • You are responsible for protecting your password. If someone manages to log into your account because they guessed/knew your password this is your responsibility.
  • If your account is hacked and commits a crime, the account may still be punished.

1.5: No Cheats / Hacks / Client Mods.

  • Anyone caught using client-side mods in order to cheat or gain an advantage will be banned permanently. This includes, but not limited to X-ray, fly-mod, sun-mod, highlight-mod, movement altering mods, bots/macros, accounts that show locations of other users.
  • Allowed mods will be listed here. If you would like a mod to be considered please make a request on the general discussion section of the Lolnet Forums.
  • Allowed mods: Journey Map, OptiFine, Shaders, FastCraft, Not Enough Items.

1.6: No abusing bugs or glitches.

  • Report any ways that seem too easy to make money for the time spent to Moderators/Admins.
  • Exploiting issues with plugins that let you do things you are not allowed to do is not allowed.
  • Exploits that let you break game rules, such as getting on the roof of the nether, are forbidden.

1.7: No deliberately crashing/lagging the server.

  • Includes giant farms that cause lag when activated and Redstone Devices that cause excessive lag.
  • Setting off too many fireworks or exploiting a bug or glitch.
  • Mob farms must not exceed 100 living entities at any time in a 3x3 chunk area.
  • Staff have the right to remove or disable property without notice if it is found to be slowing TPS or causing harm to the server.

1.8: Do not circumvent or attempt to circumvent a punishment.

  • Doing so will result in a punishment much harsher than the one originally issued.

2: All Vanilla servers.

2.1: No griefing or stealing.

Definition of Griefing: Griefing is the act of chronically causing consternation to other members of an online community, or more specifically, intentionally disrupting the immersion of another player in their gameplay. In simpler words, it means: Don’t steal or raid, Don’t destroy someone else’s work, Don’t destroy land around someone base to upset them, don’t kill their animals.

2.2: No killing or trapping players outside of designated areas.

  • Only time killing other players is acceptable is when both players mutually agree on it.
  • Tricking players into pvp is not allowed.
  • Extorting players in this situation is not allowed.

2.3: Shops and trading with other users must be done honestly.

  • If you agree to a trade and a player pays you, you must honour your end of the trade.
  • Shops must display honest information. Shops with misleading information are not allowed.

3: All modded servers.

3.1: Stop automated setups on request.

  • If you are asked to discontinue something by staff, please don’t argue.
  • We have programs that are pinpointing lag. This is the reason you are being asked to stop doing something.
  • Things that are fine in singleplayer or with five players on a server can cause problems with more people online.

As a general rule, all automatic machines should have off switches.

  • Please do not run automatic systems that you don’t need. Turn off farms, quarries, and sorting systems when you don’t need them. This includes Botania, Thaumcraft, and Blood Magic.
  • Running machines for no reason causes lag. If staff tell you to turn them off, please do so. Competing to have the most cobble in an ME system, or who can have the most Ultimate Solar panels is not a good reason for causing lag on the server.
  • Quarries are limited to two per player. Size of a quarry should not be over 100x100. Quarries may be used in the Deep Dark, Mining Worlds, and the Nether.

Failure to follow requests will force staff to remove your setup.

3.2: Refrain from asking other players for non-essential items.

  • You can of course ask for basic items, but nothing that should be considered end-game.
  • Do not repetitively ask for items, as your requests may be considered as spam.
  • It should be necessary that you earn your own items, instead of asking others for them.

3.3: Don’t give things to players who haven’t earned them

  • You can hand out some items, only building resources and some early-games items, nothing end-game.
  • End game item that you given away will be taken away and told not to do it again.


3.4: Player owned dimensions

  • If you have been allowed access to these, understand that they are for you, and not anyone else.
  • Don’t brag about having them.
  • Don’t allow other players in to use them.
  • Don’t set up systems giving all players access to what comes out of them.
  • Abuse will just convince us it was wrong to trust you with access to them.

4: Discord Chat.

4.1: Don’t make annoying noises

  • Don’t make loud high pitched noises
  • Don’t blast music into your mic
  • Anything else considered annoying will result in a punishment

4.2: Don’t intentionally cause arguments

  • Debates are not considered this

4.3: Push to talk if you have a laptop or a sensitive mic

  • We don’t need to hear what you’re typing

4.4: Don’t spam

  • See 1.3

4.5: General chat is PG

  • Chat is PG in all channels except for the NSFW channel, where any sort of inappropriate material can be posted. That is why it’s called NSFW - Not Safe For Work.
