TalentCraft strives to be an enjoyable and safe environment for all those in our community. To achieve this, we have formulated specific rules and corresponding punishments that are enforced by our staff team. If you see an individual neglecting any of the following and there are no staff members present, then please submit a player report here (Be sure to follow the template or your report may be ignored!) The first three offences are listed below each rule. Exceptions may be made for special circumstances. Violations beyond the third will be treated with a permanent or long-term restriction from our networks. If you feel you were punished for an invalid reason, we must ask you to refrain from making a commotion and instead submit an appeal in the correct section. All rules are subject to change at any time, should the need for it arise. Thanks, TalentCraft A User's offence count for; Spamming, Capital Letters, Staff Impersonation, User Impersonation, Hackusations, Harassment, Swearing, Inappropriate Chat, Non English, and Player Discrimination reset after 3 months. Minor offences are usually slip-ups, or perhaps something done in the heat of the moment. While these offences cannot be tolerated, they can usually be forgiven. If offenders refuse to heed the warning and continue with their misdeeds, staff should proceed with the punishments listed below. Exceptions can be made for players who have been around some time and are clearly aware that they're breaking the rules. | Player Disrespect – Hackusations | 15 Minute Mute | 1 Hour Mute | 1 Day Mute | 1 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 30 Day Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | If you suspect a player of using unfair modifications to a game, the only way to incriminate them is to obtain video evidence and report to a staff member. Spamming everyone that there is a hacker, without evidence, will not help the situation and will only cause more disruption. |Player Disrespect – Harassment | 1 Day Mute | 1 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | All of us are here to have fun, and being continually bothered about one thing is not fun. Continual harassment of another player or staff member after warning will result in a chat restriction, then a complete restriction from our network. | Inappropriate Content - Chat | 15 Minute Mute | 1 Day Mute | 1 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | This includes vulgar or sexual chat messages, as well as messages that reference drug use. | Inappropriate Content - Building | 1 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | This includes the building of explicitly sexual structures and depictions that may reference drug use. | Inappropriate Content - Usernames | Until Changed | Changing your username is a decision you make and should you decide to make it something inappropriate, you will not be welcomed on the TalentCraft. We cater towards an all ages community and polluting the chat with vulgar or racist usernames is strictly forbidden. As username changes are only allowed every thirty days you will be banned for this duration but can have this reduced if you appeal with evidence that shows you are able to change your username sooner. | Inappropriate Content - Swearing | 15 Minute Mute | 1 Day Mute | 1 Day Ban | 3 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | Swearing is prohibited in public chats on all game modes except for PVP-Based games (Factions, not including minigames.) Whilst the rule is relaxed on these servers we do ask that you always remain respectful towards other members of the community. | Chat Disruption - Spamming | 15 Minute Mute | 1 Hour Mute | 1 Day Ban | 3 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 21 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | Spamming is the repetition of words or phrases in a manner which floods the chat. Whilst staff members are informed to use their best judgement regarding this rule, the general rule of thumb is three repetitions within five seconds. Character spam - the succession of letters, numbers or symbols in an unnecessary manner - is included in this offence. | Chat Disruption – Capital Letters | 15 Minute Mute | 1 Hour Mute | 1 Day Ban | 2 Day Ban | 3 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 21 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | There is no need to use an excessive amount of capital letters when typing in chat. This is viewed as a chat disruption and users posting an extreme or unnecessary amount of capitalized letters (in a row) in their messages will be punished accordingly. | Chat Disruption - Impersonation Of Staff |3 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | Permanent | Impersonation is not permitted on the TalentCraft network, even as a joke, as it leads to confusion and problematic situations.

While one or two exchanges are fine, drawn-out conversations should take place in PMs. ? | TP Killing | 1 Day Ban | 3 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | 1 Month Ban | 3 Month Ban | 6 Month Ban | Permanent Ban | A player is participating in TP killing when they purposely trap another user in a way that prevents them from escaping before being killed.

Therefore, any attempts at discrimination against (including but not limited to) gender, race, sexuality, etc will not be tolerated. Note that while homophobic slurs fall under this category, using the word "gay" or the like should not be considered homophobia unless used in a derogatory context. | Player Disrespect – IRL Threats | Permanent Ban Threatening to DDOS, DOX, or harm a player('s family and friends) in real-life can be considered a legal offence. Needless to say, anyone making these threats, regardless of whether they're followed through, will be permanently restricted from our servers. | Hacked Clients or Blacklisted Modifications | 7 Day Ban | 14 Day Ban | Permanent Ban Using a client or modification which creates an unfair advantage is strictly prohibited.

Staff are required to clear the chat after the advertising players are removed. While mentioning other server names occasionally is not punishable, it is ill-advised to continually discuss other servers on our network, and will be punished as IP advertisement. | Griefing | 3 Day Ban | 7 Day Ban | Permanent Ban Deliberately destroying another community member’s creations is strictly prohibited unless you are playing on a aggressive type server. Those caught griefing will be punished and have their actions rolled back accordingly. We also classify stealing another's belongings in this category. Please note that griefing on survival is not punishable if the area affected is unprotected. | Refusal to Screen Share | Permanent Ban If a staff required to screenshare you for hacks or any other form of evidence that shows you broke the rules of our server, then you must accept if you don't have a valid reason on why we can't screenshare, or logging out of a screenshare is prohibited. | Punishment Evasion - Ban | Permanent Ban If you have been banned in-game you are not allowed to use another account to come back online. The only way of getting unbanned now is through the ban appeal process.
