    I have added the following as it goes more indepth about a number of rules frequently broken:

    > No Hacking, Exploiting, Duping or Glitching
    - This includes glitching through walls
    - This includes anything that gives you an unfair advantage over others
    - This includes X-Ray texture packs
    - Any written statement saying you hack is evidence enough to be banned.

    > No disrespecting Players or Staff Members
    - This includes Swearing, Racism, Sexism, Bullying and any other form of communications which can harm a person emotionally or physically. This also includes a persons beliefs, religion or culture etc.
    - This also includes giving away private details

    > No advertising other servers, including IPs, names or videos of a server
    - However, this does not include advertising ones you-tube account where other servers are shown.

    > No Spamming
    - This includes PMs, Auctions, /TPA and /TPAHERE commands
    - This also includes starting & cancelling auctions

    > No inappropriate language
    - This includes ALL words blocked by the anti-swearing plugin, as well as other swearwords and inappropriate words.
    - Swearing usually is blocked in the form of [Pruned], forging this message will be dealt with as if you swore, no need to use it as an excuse.
    - Creating similar or the same message, i.e. [Prund] is not accepted and will be dealt with as if you swore.
    - Attempting to bypass the plugin is an even greater offence
    - Saying F (Could be Flowers) is ok, as it does not reveal the word, however saying f*** or f*ck is not appropriate as it reveals the word

    > No inappropriate naming, writing and descriptions
    - This includes Faction names and descriptions
    - Item names
    * Anyone holding an inappropriately named item will be held responsible for it. Rename it or delete it, do NOT auction/use it
    - Signs
    - Books
    - Nick names
    * These include using server ranks, or staff names as it might confuse new players

    > No asking for ranks, OP or anything similar

    Breaking any of these rules may result in a kick, mute, temporary ban or ban. This however is at the discretion of the Staff member/Mod/Admin. All punishments are add when deciding on the final decision.

    How to report players:
    If you see any inappropriate behavior...

    Staff Rules:

    > All the above rules are the same for Staff, but the consequences are greater including demotions or bans.

    > Rank Hierarchy: Owner > Admin > Mod > Staff > Player

    - The highest rank online has the final say
    - Server Staff always have the final say, no matter what it is, it can however be debated with a higher rank
    - If there is an issue about a Mod for instance, refer it to an admin.
