Last updated Mar 13, 2023

1. Grief

Claimed structures MAY NOT be griefed.

Griefing is only allowed if builds are UNCLAIMED.

Keeping your build unclaimed indicates that you have no issue with other players griefing your build and will not be recovered afterwards.

Intentionally lagging the server is NOT allowed.

2. Sensitivity

If a player is uncomfortable about a topic and asks you to stop, you MUST stop or move to a private chat, no questions asked.

This rule applies common sense, meaning it only applies to sensitive topics and things that may make others literally uncomfortable.

Arguing / Fooling around with this rule will result in a mute.

3. Language

This is an English server, other languages in text chat are not permitted.

With the exception of well-known words / phrases.

All slurs are forbidden in text chat and builds.

4. Player Killing

Player killing is NOT allowed if they have PvP turned off with /pvp off.

Keeping PvP on indicates that you're prepared for fights with other players.

5. Impersonation

Impersonating Staff (A.K.A. Acting like you're staff) or players is not permitted.

This includes mini-modding (Moderating chat as a player).

Mini-modding may also be taken as a form of toxicity.

6. Building

Building inside a 100 block radius outside of a player's build without permission is not recommended as the owner of that build may request to move it by contacting the staff.

7. Spam

Keep spam to a minimum. This includes pinging people repetitively on Discord.

Flooding the chat with pointless content (ex. copypasta) to an irritating point is not allowed.

8. Cheating

X-raying, hacking, duping, or exploiting bugs and glitches are not allowed.

9. Advertisements

You may not talk about other servers unless they're well-known by minecraft players worldwide. (ex. hypixel, hive, etc.)

10. Annoyances

If a player is bothered or annoyed by what you're doing that's related to them, you must stop.

Repetitively trolling (e.g. telling people to do "alt + f4" to make people leave) is not permitted.

11. Behaviour

If a player is uncomfortable with controversial/sensitive topics, move your conversation to a private chat (As stated in Rule 2.).

Toxicity is not tolerated.

Some examples of toxicity include but are not limited to:

- Directing swears towards others.

- Insulting others in a discrete repetitive way.

- Acting like you're above everyone else. (At Nether Depths, everyone is equally treated.)

- Any type of harassment.

12. Privacy

Leaking others' most likely private information is not permitted.

Some people may see privacy in a different way than you would, please respect it.

(IP, age, location, phone numbers, etc) (Doxxing)

13. Inclusivity

You may not disrespect/discriminate others. Everyone in Nether Depths are included regardless of sexuality, race, looks, etc.

Discrimination towards any group that may be against your views is not permitted. That includes but is not limited to people with different sexualities, races, looks, etc.

Religion is not an excuse as you still must respect others.

Any form of discrimination is not permitted.

Discriminating against others because of their race / ethnicity / sexuality / looks will not be tolerated as we are a welcoming and inclusive community.

14. Plugin Rules

You may not pressure people into turning off /nosleep. They want to keep the night for a reason.

Abusing the Jobs plugin or any other plugin that earns you money is not allowed.

This includes but is not limited to:

- Using alts for an economic advantage (For example: Jobs) (Not including voting)

- "Scamming" (Charging others for something that should've been extremely cheaper)
