The following rules apply to the FireKage Minecraft Servers,TeamSpeak, and Forums. All of the chat rules apply to any of our chat systems we have, an example of this would be private message or guild chat.

All users are to read and follow these rules to avoid the punishment of kick or ban. If for any reason a rule needs to be changed or modified, the FireKagel Administration has the right to do so.

Using an alternate account also known as “Ban evading” to avoid punishment such as a mute or ban is prohibited on the FireKage network. If caught doing this, your ban/mute may be extended or become a permanent ban, and the alternate account will be banned.

Spam of any type is not permitted. The minimal requirement for it to be classified as spam includes, but is not restricted to, the posting of same or similar messages consecutively, a repetitive number of times within the space of a few or more seconds. Messages comprising of all or a large amount of caps is also considered spam. Spam on the Forums will not be tolerated, spamming posts or threads will either get you suspended or banned from the forums.

* You are allowed to use macros, but things such as automated clickers (Auto mine, Auto build, etc) are not allowed.

Note: X-raying, hacked client bans are permanent bans and will not be unbanned for these offences. We use special software to detect these.

Respect All Staff Members
All decisions made by the FireKage staff team are considered final. Please do not argue with a judgment made by one of our staff members. If you feel a member of staff is being abusive, please contact the administration team on the forums or message them privately.

We may remove or lock threads of which the sole purpose is to publicly complain, shame, or rage about staff members. These issues should be dealt with privately.

Griefing
Griefing is the act of irritating and angering through the use of destruction, construction, or stealing. 

Griefing with includes stealing items that does not belong to you. Players are not allowed to break or steal other peoples thing (I.e. “griefing”.) This includes building on other peoples builds without permission. 

To note, BadLands is a “Raid”/ Pvp hardcore server, guidelines for griefing are different for other worlds/ server within FireKage network. (Please See BadLand Guidelines for details)

Account Security and Sharing
As a player on the FireKage Network, you are responsible for the security of your Minecraft and FireKage website accounts. If another user gains access to your account by any means, you are still responsible for your account. Please make sure that your passwords are secure and that you never give them out to anyone. 

To note, FireKage Network only allow a maximum of 2 accounts per person and we do not allow the sharing of Minecraft accounts used on the FireKage Network. If your account is shared with another user and they break a rule which results in punishment, the punishment will remain on the account regardless of any claims that you weren't the person using the account. This could, in some cases, also lead to a punishment being carried over to other accounts you own if we believe it to be a case of you evading your punishment.

Note for VIP’s, Being a VIP is a privilege and trading VIP account, rank for Money (in-game or Real), Items, on FireKage Network isn’t allowed and is classified as “Account sharing” and will be dealt with accordingly. This may also end as removal of VIP status.


Advertising is not Permitted
Advertising, mentioning, asking about servers on the FireKage Network or Forums will result in a ban from the Network & Forums. This includes sharing an IP or Website/Domain (The only exceptions to this rule is the posting of certain FireKage related sites “website/ Forums, donate, help” for the purposes of helping players get to the information they are asking for.) in public chat , messaging system, pet names, etc…

Advertising any YouTube Channel or Twitch is not allowed.

Advertising your faction name, inviting, or publicly offering any player to join your faction will be allowed in server chat. But if you spam it or annoy other players it will result in a mute so please, if a staff member asks you to stop, listen to them. All faction-related promotions, offers, announcements, etc, should be done on the ‘Factions’ board on the forums to avoid complains.

Announcing anything that relates to a party for games is allowed; though please do not break the rules of Spam & Capital Letters.

Player Killing Outside Pvp Areas
As Player VS Player (PVP) is allowed, It’s also important to understand that killing another player outside designated (PVP Arena, BadLands) areas is prohibited, this includes Death traps (holes that drops and is deep enough to kill a player.) If your build is designed with the potential to kill players beyond the dangers of basic exploration, warning signs must be present. If in doubt about a build, ask staff!

Buying and Selling Minecraft Accounts 
If you choose to buy a Minecraft account from someone else (a practice that we do not recommend), please note that if you find it is banned from the network, it is NOT our responsibility to unban it. That account had a history before it came into your ownership, and it stays with the account.

To protect the users of this network, we also do NOT allow the sale (or advertising of) Minecraft accounts on the FireKage Network or Forums. This is because selling Minecraft accounts is a commonly used avenue for scammers. Not allowing these sales is the best way for us to protect the users of our network.

Building Restrictions
Players are required to be in a faction and claim land to build. Building in wilderness or Creative builds in wilderness isn’t allowed. 1x1 towers to sky isn’t allowed as is death traps. Pigmen farms (Portal farms) can contain no more than 4 total portals per faction.

To reduce lag, you must use only a bare minimum of hoppers. No hopper transport tubes.

Do not Impersonate or “Pretend to be Someone”
Impersonating or attempting to login as a staff member is a serious offense on the FireKage Network, as we do not take this lightly. If you witness someone impersonating a Player or Staff Member, please contact a staff member as soon as possible. Impersonating to be staff on the forums is not allowed, please do not trick someone to think you are able to do something that you can’t.

You can recognize staff members by looking at their tags:
• Assistant will have the light blue [assistant] prefix,
• Moderators will have the yellow [mod] prefix,
• Administrators will have the orange [admin] prefix.
• Developers will have a orange [dev] prefix.

Server Restart/ Lag
FireKage Network is a server and once every little bit the server must restarted to help reduce stress on the server(s) usually it only takes few seconds to minute for a restart. Complaining about a restart becomes annoying for staff(s) that is just doing their job to help keep the server running smooth, those who complain about a restart ill be kicked. 90% f the time when a player is complaining about “Lag” it’s not due to the server it is due to their computer and like complaining about server restarts becomes annoying to both the players and staff, So complaining about it is not allowed.

Offensive Skins are not Permitted
Skins that are offensive or sexually explicit are not permitted on the FireKage Network. Everyone using a skin of such nature will be warned at first sight, but further consequences may follow if use of the skin is continued.

Offensive Capes are not Permitted
Capes that have offensive or sexually explicit content are not permitted on the FireKage Network. As capes are an extension of your skin, inappropriate capes will be treated the same as inappropriate skins. Everyone using a cape of this kind will be warned first, if you do not change or remove the cape then further action will be taken.

We are aware that players can be bought capes without their knowledge and they can be offensive. In this case, if you are warned by a member of staff that you have an offensive cape on, we will require you to take it off. If not then you will be punished in the same way.

Offensive Usernames are not Permitted
Usernames that could be considered offensive like, sexual topics, bad words or distasteful are forbidden. If you don't follow that rule you will be permanently banned from the server. Please don't forget that we want a server family friendly.

Inappropriate Housing Content
Like the rest of the server, content which is created in housing must be appropriate, meaning that it should not be offensive, discriminatory or generally inappropriate in any other ways. This includes buildings, signs, chat, etc. If a staff member finds that your housing plot does contain inappropriate content, they may reset your plot entirely if you do not / cannot remove the offensive material.

To note, while we also allow most forms of role play in housing, dating and marriage role playing is not allowed on the server due to it's close links with far more inappropriate, adult forms of role play.

Rules for Non-Staff Members
Currently there are quite a lot of problems with people getting annoyed at being told what to do by a non-staff member, on top of this there is also a lot of you wondering how you can become a staff member if you keep getting told off for helping. Well here are some guidelines/rules for you to follow to stop this confusion from happening.

You can answer players questions, there is nothing wrong with that. However, don't answer questions if you are unsure on the answer, it's not minigame related or it’s not directed at you. It’s okay to answer questions such as “how to equip a hat” “how to join minigames” etc, basically any information that can be spotted on signs around lobbies or under /help.
Answering questions on how to buy VIP, upgrade to VIP+ or even where to report players or bugs is acceptable, but once again if you are unsure please remember to not give an answer in that case. There is nothing worse than giving out the wrong information as it just causes problems at a later date.

You cannot be rude to any other person even if they're being rude to you, treat people with respect you don’t know what the situation is at the other end. On top of this you can’t be giving out orders regarding the rules, for example “STOP SPAMMING” there should be a staff member in that lobby, a helper is a staff member even if their provocative is to help they're still staff and have commands to control these situations. If the staff member in your lobby isn’t responding to a question or isn't dealing with said rule breaker, and its now been 20-30 seconds of a user spamming an IP or breaking a rule, try /msg to the staff member or better yet screenshot what is going wrong and report it HERE.
You can also seek a staff member, but please don't take the situation into your own hands and try telling them what to do, it tends to make the situation worse.
Some staff members are using macros to answer some of the more common questions such as “where can i donate?”. Staff members shouldn’t need to be racing to answer questions in case a player gets there first, this itself can cause mistakes and we want you guys to be enjoying the minigames. So you really want to be a staff member or know someone who does? You aren't going to impress the staff if you are annoying them by beating them to the post, causing problems by giving out the wrong information or even telling others what to do when you shouldn’t be or Asking to be staff, Admin, Op as ONLY the owner can promote players to staff.

You can impress us by helping when a staff member appears to be AFK, answering the smaller general questions, reporting rule breakers on the forums, being on the TeamSpeak server often and talking. If a staff member asks you to ease it up a little don't be offended its for all the best reasons, just be polite about it and maybe move to another lobby. Causing commotion or an argument with a staff member will put you on their bad books, lowering your chances. The staff team is one huge family in a way, meaning if you annoy one it will spread badly to the others.

Someone who isn't liked by staff members won't get accepted as it will cause friction which we can't have among staff. It’s not fun for the staff when they have players running around yelling at them for doing their job, we are volunteers and we are here to help and moderate that is what we have been chosen for. All we ask is that you don’t take the fun away for us but instead start to help us, if you are unsure be sure to /msg any moderator if you have concerns on what you can and can’t do.

The FireKage Network Rules are subject to change at anytime, you are responsible for keeping up to date with them. The FireKage Administration has the right to add, remove or modify any and all items on the list of rules and regulations. Thank you for reading the rules and following them.

AVATAR GUIDELINES

Guidelines/Rules

- Photos must not contain any nudity or sexual reference, meaning no fake anime girl or real photos that fall under the category of pornography.
- Photos must not contain any reference to drugs or alcohol, we do not want to advertise any product that might be offensive or inappropriate on the FireKage Website.
- Photos must not encourage violence, racism, or any misconduct. Please keep in mind that any sign that relates to these categories are not allowed.
- Photos or Selfies you find on the Internet are not allowed to be uploaded as your avatar. Meaning you cannot impersonate other people on here by posting a fake photo of “yourself”.

SIGNATURE GUIDELINES

Requirements
You are expected to comply with the following guidelines. All users who do not follow the guidelines will be dealt as such stated at the bottom of this post.

What can you hyperlink?
Signatures cannot have any links in them that contain harmful cyber trash such as but not limited to viruses, harmful cookies or account stealers (phishing).
You ARE allowed to advertise your social media pages, as long as it follows our network rules and other guidelines. Any signatures with animated images (.gif) or videos that contain flashing lights are not allowed, as these can cause seizures and can be harmful to other users.
Non flashy animated images are allowed.

Videos in spoilers
Signatures can only contain videos if they are wrapped in spoiler tags. Videos must be appropriate for all audiences and follow our network rules and guidelines regardless of whether or not it is in a spoiler.

Common courtesy
Please remember that every user that has signatures enabled can see yours. This means to use the space wisely knowing that it will not be only you who sees it. Having too many animations or wasting space with list will annoy others. Use your signature to let people know who you are, or to share social media with them. Many people love to show off achievements too.
Attacking a person or featuring a user in your signature should only be done with their permission. We don't want signature wars on our server.

What will happen if the guidelines are not followed?
Most of the time, if a user does not follow these guidelines, they will receive a message from a staff member letting them know, and asking them to change it.

Polices 
Land Claims: Faction land belongs to the faction. Players cannot "own" land. Players who recieve land from other players, whether as a gift or in exchange for money or goods, are recieving it for the faction they have it claimed under. This land is managed at the sole discretion of the faction's current leader and in the event of any controversy, it is up to that leader to decide on whether to keep it. This policy is intended to protect factions and provide a simple resolution to issues that arise. Those who try to use this policy in order to scam players, or even their own faction, for access to valuable land will not be protected by this policy. Such issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Overclaiming: Factions that have fallen beneath their alotted claims are subject to have land unclaimed by an admin at the admin's discretion. This land usually applies first to land that is unused but can apply to any chunks as an admin sees fit depending on the situation. As this is a common issue, it is impossible to address every issue of overclaiming on the server, but players must be aware that their faction's land claims can be lost if they become overclaimed.

Lockettes: Items that you wish to protect must be kept in chests with your lockette attached. Even if you lose access to the land, you can request a staff member assist you in retrieving your items. If you have left or were kicked from your faction and you need help getting your items moved, use our lockette request forum. You have 7 days if you have left your faction, and 14 days if you were kicked from the faction or banned from the server. If you do not get your items moved within the time frame, your items can be rightly claimed by the faction with a staff member's assistance, or they will be scattered to the ground once the lockette expires after 31 days.

Faction Rules: It is up to a faction to enforce their own rules. Server staff will not enforce these rules. Factions may not make rules which are in opposition to the rules of the server.

Additional Forum Rules
Some rules have greater consequences than others and have been worded to reflect this. Those which do not result in a permanent ban will result in a warning from a staff member and a mark against your forum account. If enough marks accrue (and it does not take many,) you will lose your forum-posting privileges permanently.

Again: If you are banned from the forums, you CAN NOT appeal. Further, if you are banned from the forums, that will prevent you from appealing in-game bans, too, so take care to follow these rules very carefully!
