    SurviveWithUs Server Rules
    In this thread, you will find the official rules of SurviveWithUs. If you are a player on our server, we expect you to follow these rules whether you're on the server, forums, or discord. Failure to adhere to these rules may result in punishments, whether it be in the form of a mute/kick or in severe cases, a ban.

    • Client Modifications
      • Allowed → Client mods that do not give you an unfair advantage, such as minimaps, OptiFine, and other purely aesthetic mods.
      • Disallowed → All other client modifications (such as fly, jump, speed, x-ray, auto clickers, etc.) should be considered against the rules.
        • If you're caught using illegal mods, you will either be warned or banned, depending on the circumstances.
        • Please see the acceptable client modifications page for more details on what is allowed/disallowed.
    All modifications are used at your own risk.
    • Griefing
      • Allowed You are allowed (But strongly discouraged) to grief abandoned, unclaimed bases with no apparent owner.
      • Disallowed Griefing a claimed base whether you are trusted or not. (Examples: You convince a player to trust you, wait for them to leave, then raid/grief - Get invited into a community and grief them when they are offline - Create lava casts outside of the claimed bases - etc.).
        • Be confident when trusting people because staff won't interfere If your base mate steals from your base and leaves.
      • Disallowed Claim blocking. This means you can't claim outside of a player's base/claim without their explicit permission. Building near a player's base with the intention to be malicious or disruptive is also a punishable offense upon staff discretion.
      • DisallowedGriefing the main island of the end in all realms except Purple Realm.
    • Advertising
      • Allowed You are allowed to advertise recording/streaming on SurviveWithUs.
      • AllowedYou are allowed to stream other games but NOT other Minecraft servers.
      • Allowed You are allowed to mention the names of other servers.
      • Disallowed It is forbidden to put another server's IP in the chat at any time, whether it be through messages, signs, or other indirect methods. You cannot ask other players if they want to join (or play on) another server. This also includes other Discord servers.
    • Abusing Bugs or Exploits
      • Allowed You are allowed to use/replicate bugs or exploits in certain situations.
        • You are allowed to use bugs or exploits if you are reporting and showing them to a member of staff.
      • Disallowed It is strictly prohibited to knowingly and willingly abuse bugs or exploits in these situations.
        • If the bug or exploit gives you or another player an unfair advantage over other players.
    • Scamming
      • Disallowed You are strictly prohibited from scamming or otherwise stealing from other players. This includes posting false advertisements in discord (Ex: You don’t have the money to cover what you’re asking, You’ve knowingly posted a sell offer for an item that isn’t what it’s supposed to be, etc.)
    • Ban Evading
      • Disallowed Ban Evading is logging in with an alternate account after another one of your accounts has been banned. Ban Evading is never allowed. If you are caught Ban Evading, it will result in an even more permanent ban from the server. Why not try appealing your ban?
    • Alternative Accounts
      • DisallowedUsing an alt account is strictly prohibited and will result in that account being banned, plus additional punishment on the main account.
    • Automated Mob Farms
      • Allowed The construction and use of automated farms are allowed.
        • The automated farm must auto kill the mobs that it spawns.
      • DisallowedMob farms that use entity cramming as a killing method.
      • DisallowedAFK'ing at a mob farm that does not have a fully automatic killing system.
    • Player Made Warps
      • Allowed Player made warps, but the warp also needs to follow all of the rules, and not have anything that is disallowed.
      • Allowed A warp that truly benefits the entire community and not a selfish reason. (For yourself, your friends, or because you just want a warp)
        • The warp has to be kept up to date.
        • The warp needs a player suggestion box that is accessible to players who visit.
        • The warp must be aesthetically pleasing, have great functionality, and have signs to guide people. (If you need a visual reference please go to /warp xpfarm, /warp sheep, or /warp flowers on red realm)
        • Just because you think your potential "warp" is aesthetically pleasing, that does not mean it will be made into an actual warp.
        • Each warp will have one /warp command. (This helps keep the list short and easily readable)
      • AllowedYou may own as many different warps as you want (if each one meets these guidelines)
      • DisallowedThe warp cannot be like any existing warps.
        • You can verify how unique your idea is in-game by using the command /warp and teleporting to each warp.
        • (For example: If the /warp xpfarm does not have wolf spawners, that does not mean you are allowed to make a wolf spawner warp.) Simply ask the owner of the warp to possibly update/add what you'd like to see added to the warp.
      • DisallowedArguing with staff about their final decision. This is not personal, but staff have to follow these rules to keep it fair for all players.
        • Just because you don't have a warp doesn't mean people can't use what you've built. A warp is just a command to go to a certain place. All permissions are still done under the same /claims command, so you have full control over what you allow/disallow people to use.
      • Please fill out this form HERE if you want to submit your warp for approval review.
      • If you feel you still need clarification please ask a staff member before you put time and effort into your build if you are unsure.
    • Guidelines For Custom Prefixes + Nicknames
      • Allowed Choosing your own Custom Prefix or Nickname when you're bought the appropriate rank. (Abuse of this will result in a ban)
        • Prefixes: Must all have brackets [ ] at the front and end of the tag.
      • Allowed Prefixes and Nicknames that are 16 characters or less. (Brackets on prefixes do not count towards the 16 character limit)
      • Allowed Prefixes that have certain symbols (That don't break chat rules).
      • Allowed Nicknames that have a regular symbol in the middle or end.
        • Example: survivewithus! / survive_withus / survivewith-us. / etc.
        • There MUST be a minimum of two letters before a regular symbol in your nickname.
      • Disallowed Nicknames that have special characters or symbols (Example: []/{},.<>, etc).
      • Disallowed Prefixes and Nicknames that have obfuscated characters.
      • Disallowed Prefixes and Nicknames that have strikethrough characters.
      • Disallowed Prefixes and Nicknames that have underlined characters.
      • Disallowed Prefixes and Nicknames that can be confused with a current staff or player rank. This also includes the [AFK] title assigned to AFK players.
      • Disallowed Prefixes and Nicknames that impersonate another player.
      • Disallowed Prefixes and Nicknames that have profanity / sexual innuendos / racism / mimicry of other players/staff, or words that break chat rules. The most common racist symbol is: ✠, for a full list please visit HERE.
      • To find colors for your Prefix / Nickname click HERE.
