Below is a list of our rules. Note that admins do not necessarily judge these rules to the letter, and that attempting to skirt the rules may still end up with a punishment. Some of these rules are left intentionally vague, others can be clearly defined. In any case, consider these a set of guidelines rather than a set-in-stone list of precise rulings.

1. No Griefing
1.1. Don't destroy anything a player has built unless a rule states otherwise.
1.2. You may break a players building to gain entry, providing minimum damage is caused.
1.3. Don't cause unnecessary damage to the landscape.
1.4. Don't unnecessarily destroy, craft or consume other players items. You may steal but don't destroy chests and leave items to disappear or burn the items. Once the items are back at your home they are yours and you can do as you wish with them.
1.5. Don't destroy another players redstone.
1.6. No one by one block towers unless you remove them immediately after use.
1.7. Don't destroy other players crops or farmland, except for wheat which can be trampled to gather wheat.
1.8. Don't kill or release other players animals or mobs.
1.9. The following placed blocks may be stolen regardless of whether they make up part of a structure or a beacon: Iron blocks, gold blocks, lapis blocks, diamond blocks, emerald blocks, all ore blocks (except Coal Blocks), enchanting tables, anvils, brewing stands, juke box, rails, heads, banners, shulker boxes, beacons, hoppers, items frames and the items inside them. Also, ender chests providing you break with silk touch pick and don't destroy it. (However, ender chests may be broken on a battleground)
1.10. Don't change what people have written on signs or remove them.
1.11. Don't place inordinate amounts of blocks all over a build.
1.12. No TnT-based entry.
1.13. No Piston-based entry (poking holes in walls).
1.14. No redstone-based airplanes, etc.
1.15. Settling a town over ruins or other structures, only to destroy structures is considered griefing.

2. No Client Side Mods or Xray Resource Packs
2.1. No mods can be used while on the server, regardless whether they give the player an in-game advantage or not. The exception to this is if it is listed on our approved client-side mods list.
2.2. No resource packs that make any blocks transparent that are not transparent in the default pack.
2.3. No Macros or autoclickers (This includes lowering mouse debounce time).
2.4. If you are suspected of using a client/cheats/macros you will be frozen and screen shared. (if you log out during this, it will result in a minimum 1 month ban) (if you break rule 2 during a conquest fight, ranked match or festival it may result in a permaban, this includes logging out while frozen)

3. Don't Abuse Bugs

3.1. Don't abuse any bug, whether it be a bug with the game minecraft or a feature of the server. Please report any bug found immediately using /report. Do not inform others about the bug or use it yourself.
3.2. No block jumping in protected areas.
3.3. Don't attempt to glitch break blocks or open locked doors/gates in protected areas in order to access chests etc.
3.4. Don't use vehicles to pass through walls.
3.5. Don't abuse transparent blocks/ TNT to Xray.
3.6. Failure to report players who are abusing bugs/breaking rules.

4. No Spamming Chat
All chat rules apply equally to our Discord Server.
4.1. Don't spam capitals.
4.2. Don't repeat the same thing more than once.
4.3. Don't claim to be from planet minecraft.
4.4. Do not spam public chat with arguments.
4.5. Don't spam chat with death messages.
4.6. Don't spam players via private message.
4.7. Don't spam chat with log in messages.
4.8. Please use English when talking public chat. We have a very diverse population, but we ask that you speak English in Public Chats.

5. No Swearing or Offensive Behaviour
All chat rules apply equally to our Discord Server.
5.1. Don't use any words in public or local chat that could be seen as offensive, as all ages play on the server.
5.2. No hate speech or any other kind of discrimination.
5.3. Do not purposefully agitate or disrupt the community by means of Trolling, harassment, or sarcasm
-The admin team is well versed in Trolling, so don't push it. We know what Trolling is and we will not tolerate it. You can expect a nearly zero tolerance policy on this.

5.5. No offensive/rude skins (or capes).
5.6. No offensive/rude builds.
5.7. No offensive/rude usernames.
5.8. No offensive/rude lored/named items. (this will result in the item being unlored and potentially a ban)
5.9. Do not discuss/mention irl religious or political subjects.
5.10. We do not monitor town or alliance chat channels. We will only do this if bullying or hate speech occurs.

6. Don't Bully Other Players
This rule applies anywhere, (any platform) not just on the server. Loka brings players together, so we feel we have a responsibility to protect them outside of the server too. Click here if you want more info on the types of bullying. If you feel you are being bullied please contact bat3415 or Magpieman.
6.1. Don't repeatedly kill the same person.

6.3. Don't steal from players at spawn.

7.2. In the event of an RP event that has been approved by Admins, only then can approved Alts be allowed online.
7.3. You cannot log onto another persons account or allow them to log onto yours. (this will result in a minimum 1 month ban)
7.4. Knowingly assisting/interacting with players who are ban evading or logging in on alts.
7.5. VPNs are not allowed (this includes exitlag).

8. Don't Betray Your Town
8.1. You cannot steal from your own town.

8.5. You cannot raid a town as a temporary builder.

9.1. Don't ask other players to join a server or write a server ip in public chat.

Removed 15.3 and reworded 15.2 to compensate:

15.2. You cannot assist in, nor attempt to convince someone to let you into a town so as to steal, murder members, etc.

In short, don't betray your town nor attempt to convince someone to betray their town for raiding purposes.
