STOP what you are doing, and read well! WHAT ARE RULES: A rule is a prescribed guide for conduct or action WHERE ARE THE RULES: You all know me as TheDeibo, or "That_Guy_Who_defends_inactivity_staff", which is fine by me. I have noticed people forgetting that there are forum rules. and I will remind you of them here. There are PocketMine forum rules everywhere, and I will tell you where to find them. Even though some rules don't look like they affect PocketMine-MP Forum, in reality, they do. For example, of shoghicp's Gist, there is a PocketMine-MP-IRC rules list. Spoiler: https://gist.github.com/shoghicp/6194637 There it says rules. (These rules I will add to the bottom of this post.) On the Terms and Conditions, There are rules there, and even handy little BB-Code tutorials. There is a handy link in the footer of this page right now. Its called "Terms and Rules". (For lazy people, here is the link https://forums.pocketmine.net/help/terms ) Now, there are rules that you cant see either. There in the mystical world of COMMON SENSE! Now, where can I find these rules? Everywhere! Think of it this way. On your server, you would have rules, and those rules would be similar to (if not exactly) this... Spoiler: Average Server Rules Ok, sure. No one wants to be banned. That's why, if you break a rule, you will get a warning. Sometimes warnings consists of a TEMPORARY ban. Which is natural. So some who don't know what a warning looks like, feel free to look into the spoiler below. Spoiler: Warning System Now onto the rules it's self. Here is the part that no one wants to see, but if you don't see it, then risk a ban from the forum (Possibly warning first) What I will do, is combine ALL the rules I can find from links related to PocketMine, and also add some common sense too. RULES No posting anything that is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like(1), likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws! No Advertising. This includes servers, hosting sites. - This (however) can be done on this link https://forums.pocketmine.net/servers/ Be patient.

Plugin/tools questions or discussions must be in their correct forums We will not help you if you have a THIRD PARTY VERSION (Forked Version) of PocketMine. Use the HELP forum to ask for help, not any other part of the PocketMine forum.

Do not abuse polls Do not advertise other sites or projects. This includes Third Party Versions (Forked Versions) of PocketMine. (1) Advertising in your signature will the sole intent and motive to receive income for such a image and or link to your business / product is highly forbidden. You may advertise your website as long as it is not worded in hopes of receiving a sale and does not contain any product information pertaining to such a website. So if you think about it, you people are spamming (or Spam-like-ing -- in my dictionary, that's a word) the forum with questions such as "Why are the staff inactive". WHY DO WE NEED RULES? In a broad view, societies use rules to regulate unwanted or harmful behavior and to encourage wanted or beneficial behavior of individual society members I hope you have found this novel above interesting, and would follow the rules set. Non of these rules were made up by me. I have simply combined them from many locations that are linked to PocketMine-MP. Also, I have explained some of the rules in detail. Common Sense:After reading a topic called Common Sense, I have gave it some thought. And, by sharing this link, should also decrease the amount of unwanted posts on selected topics. Do you ever asked something that's been asked millions of times before, in pure laziness? Well, that is a form of SPAMMING. Sure enough, if no one has asked that question, you can ask it. Here is a article supplied by @SOFe explaining and helping with such problems. https://github.com/SOF3/forums-common-sense/wiki/Terms-and-Abbreviations And if you don't know what anything means within the code environment, here is a handy link. https://github.com/SOF3/forums-common-sense/wiki/Code-Environment This is not advertising, this is simply a reference for the users to help follow the rules, and to decrease the forum spam Many Thanks, Your Friendly person of person-ness, TheDeibo.
