GrangerHub Server Rules

  • Rules are subject to change at the discretion of the server owner, and any changes will be published with or without advanced notice.
  • Any violation(s) of the rules do not justify other players to also violate the rules. Everyone is accountable for their own actions, and consequences will apply to all violators. Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse for breaking them.
  • Use the “/ignore” command (instead of mute) or “/suggest ignore” (available soon), if you don’t want to see someone’s allowed chat (chat that doesn’t violate the chat rules or other policies / terms). Reasons for /suggest ignore do not have to be valid. Admins and players should take a stand against hate speech with /suggest ignore.

  1. No vote, nor teamvote, nor /suggest abuse. No excessive spamming of called votes nor /suggest, nor calling the same votes nor /suggest that have recently failed. No using multiple clients to cast votes. No using votes nor /suggest in a way they were not intended to be used (where another vote type or /suggest type or other command, which is intended for that use, would be more suitable). No server takeovers (Kicking others with votes and taking the server for yourself). No glitching votes nor /suggest. No calling votes nor a /suggest which require a valid reason (like mute and kick require) without providing a reason that is both valid and accurate. The rules designate which violations are valid reasons for which kinds of votes. A violation of rule 1 is a valid reason for denycallvotes votes (available soon) , mute votes, and/or kick votes depending on the situation.

  • Repeating any offense(s) will result in worsening the sanctions taken, a doubled ban length, a tripled ban length and/or permanent banning.
  • No encouraging or instigating others to violate rules.
  • Evading kicks & bans is not smart! If you feel your ban was unjustified, please appeal on the website and be polite! It will probably help with removing the ban. Admins will increase the duration of your ban every time you evade. We suggest and encourage you to report evaders to our admins or on the website so we can be aware and take appropriate measures against them.
  • If an admin’s response to a situation doesn’t comply exactly with code of conduct, and it falls into a gray area, the benefit of the doubt will generally be given to the admin.
  • Support chats, private messages from GrangerHub staff, moderators and game server administrators concerning the operations, administration or management of GrangerHub sites, services, or its users, are confidential between the individuals involved in the conversation. Do not share or publish any part of them (exception for reporting rule violations and/or admin abuse). Any chat that violates rules and/or threatens to violate rules may be reported.
  • Submitting a report without sufficient evidence, and/or without complying with the required report format will be considered an inadequate report, and will be automatically closed. Submitting falsified evidence, and/or spamming of inadequate reports, will result in a ban.
