Season's Greetings Fellow Guildies!
Last week's Guild Build was hectic to say the least. We had a difficult time getting a group picture. This is not what we hoped for our community. We are looking for people who like to build, learn, and have fun together. This week's Guild Build will focus on building winter and holiday pixel art in the winter area. Hopefully, we will have time for a mini-game too! Please review the Griefing Policy and remember that we want East Coast Miners to be a place that if fun for all!
East Coast Miners Greifing Policy Leadership - 24th August 2016 Reviewed December 2016
We hope that the East Coast Miners Community can be a positive and fun environment for everyone involved. For this reason we have developed the following policies to continue the growth of our unique community.
What is Griefing?
Griefing is the act of irritating and angering people through the use of destruction, construction, or other means of interfering with normal gameplay.
Examples of prohibited griefing:
- Put downs and negative comments
- Offensive language (swearing)
- Chat Spamming (typing large amounts of text to fill users screens)
- Interfering or preventing builds (unwanted "helping")
- Destroying others' builds
- Using fire to be destructive
- Lava or Water Flooding
- Unwanted use of potions on other players
- Spawning excessive unwanted mobs
- Purposefully annoying others (teleporting to them when asked not to)
- Repeated killing and ganging up on others in survival
- Anything else that is not respectful and kind
If you feel you are being griefed clearly tell the other player, in text chat, that you do not like what they are doing and to please stop. (The use of text chat allows the leadership team to be aware of what happened.)
For Example: Mainecakes: K4Sons please stop throwing invisibility potions on me, if you continue that is griefing.
Hopefully, they will stop at this point. But if the problem continues, please report the incident to the East Coast Miners leadership by sending an email to EastCoastMiners@gmail.com.
Furthermore, the use of hacked, modified or cracked minecraft clients is not allowed.
What happens if a player breaks our charterPlayers will be warned
A member of the leadership team will issue a warning by kicking a player and indicating why they were kicked.
When the player rejoins the server we will help them remember how to follow our agreed rules.
Players who repeatedly break the rules will be temporarily banned and will not be able to login to the server for minimum of 2 guild build sessions.
Players who continue to disregard the Community Charter will be removed from the whitelist.
Once a player has been removed from the whitelist, they have the option to go through a formal apology process in order to be reinstated.
It is the leadership teams hope that these clear expectations will continue to foster positive experiences within the East Coast Miners Community.
Everyone at the last Guild Build discussed the new Griefing Policy. It was agreed that it was fair and should make our server a fun place.
