Please read careful as there is no valid reason for violating any policy with the excuse "I didn't know it was a policy." or "I didn't think that was the meaning of that rule.". Ignorance of the rules is never acceptable. If you are questioning yourself on whether or not your actions are in violation of the server rules then, you should refrain from doing that action and ask an Admin or Moderator before proceeding. Keep in mind that Moderators/Administrators have final say about what happens on this server and their decisions are are final. IMPORTANT: By logging into our server OR using our website forums, you are automatically binded to the Server Guidelines indefinitely.
Inappropriate/Non G-Rated discussions
Posts which contains subjects such as: foul language/cussing, nudity and s*x, violence, drug or alcohol use (or any other illegal substance), etc., and/or that may be offensive to parents of younger children, will be removed immediately. This includes foul language, inappropriate pictures or external webserver links that may be inappropriate for children. If you are uncertain as to whether a certain word, image, or link is allowed, contact a moderator or administrator before adding it to this server. This applies to all of our servers and forums, threads, posts, private messages, userpages, profiles, avatars and signatures.
This server has children present therefore asking for or volunteering personal information is not allowed. Personal Info consists of Real Life Names, Gender, Location, Email Address exchanges, Instant messenger ID's, Password/Account Information, School Information and other similar details. This also applies to posting personal pictures of the Guests, their schools, homes (that include their exact locations), etc. This includes posting this information through Private Messages. We here at MCMagic.us strive to keep the environment as safe as possible for our Guests.
Any posts that are hateful or mean in nature will be removed immediately. We do not tolerate attacks based on race, religion, gender, s**ual orientation, or political affiliation or any posts indicating grieving other Guests on the forums or in game by purposefully causing them to go sad because of their laugh limit, gag limit, age, etc.. No personal threats or harassment. This includes posting pictures representing an attack. Debate opinions and not the people behind them.
This falls under "Flaming". Naming people or their characters in negative light is not permitted. That person is not able to defend themselves or their actions and what seems like an inappropriate action, which can often be a simple misunderstanding, can lead to a negative reaction against that person (avoidance, revenge). If someone griefs you in the game, report it to a Staff or Report the user immediately . If someone griefs you on this server, PM an admin or moderator or report their posts.
Intentionally posting false arguments, flames or personal attacks for no other purpose than to incite a negative reaction, annoy others or disrupt a discussion is also prohibited. These perpetrators are known as "trolls".
Highly Controversial Topics
These conversations tend to lead to violent outbursts based on strong personal beliefs. Posts which contain political commentary, religious or other highly controversial topics will be removed and action will be taken depending on the severity. These topics may (but are not limited to) contain beliefs/opinions on religion, political subject matter (i.e., new governmental laws, candidates, etc.), abortion, se*ual orientation and/or highly controversial current events.
"Spam" refers to saying identical (or very close to identical) and/or irrelevant messages in chat repeatedly. Doing so is in violation of these guidelines and will result in administrative action.
Whether for personal gain or for private use, personal web servers, personal message boards, and servers which are not endorsed by MCMagic.us are not to be posted anywhere in chat, as we are unable to maintain the level of their content, which may or may not be suitable for children.
Impersonation of other Users & Staff
Creating accounts on the server with similar names of existing Guests or staff from MCMagic in order to cause chaos or misconceptions towards that person is not allowed and it can lead to permanent suspension from the server.
Multiple / Sharing Accounts
Members are only allowed one username per person in a household and are strongly discouraged from sharing accounts with other family members and / or friends. In terms of guideline violations, MCMagic.us moderators/administrators may track multiple shared accounts from single or multiple computers as one account. If a guideline violation is severe enough, it may become necessary to ban/delete one or all of the usernames on the same computer, depending on the severity. You are responsible for anyone and everyone who uses your account and/or accesses other accounts from your computer.
The actions of one person could easily directly impact all known shared message board accounts.
**NOTE: This does not apply to Admins/Moderators, we sometimes need multiple accounts to test technical issues that come up from various user levels and to do that properly it requires us to create "test" accounts.
Moderators and Administration:
Moderators and administrators of these servers monitor your compliance with the rules of the server and dispense disciplinary action at their discretion. Disciplinary decisions may be appealed through the Appeal Procedure. All Appeals are to be sent at http://MCMagic.us/contact/

Attempting to bypass a suspension by accessing the forums with another account will result in a permanent, immediate suspension.
Forum infractions may result in immediate actions being taken that can range from written warnings, temporary suspension or permanent suspension from this server, depending on the severity and frequency of the offense:

Report A Post
If you see anything questionable or another member is getting out of hand, please click on the "REPORT" button on the upper right corner of the post in question. Please include a brief message stating who the person is & what they did specifically. Do not use this feature for any other reason and do not take matters into your own hands by replying, PMing, or scolding a person. Please click the button to report a post only once per post. An email is sent to all mods for that forum and it will be dealt with as soon as a mod sees the email. This is becoming a MAJOR problem - one bad post can generate a whole thread of Guests telling the OP how wrong they were.
Server Donations and Subscriptions:
We greatly appreciate the support our Guests voluntarily wish to give us for providing a great server for a world we all enjoy. Donations to the server are a donation, it is not a payment. We have provided Guests with extra features/perks for donating as a courtesy and a "thank you for donating" but other than that it is a donation. We may provide refunds on donations. If a user decides not to use the features/perks or decides to quit the server or violates the policies of the server and loses their account, it has nothing to do with their donation.
We do not let donations or seniority dictate to or influence us on the decisions that are made in keeping this server fun and safe for all of our members.
