Athera is intended to be a fun, welcoming and friendly environment for all players to play on. As such, we have a list of rules we expect all players to follow with no exceptions.
1. Respect all players.
Treat other players with respect and common decency/courtesy. Don't abuse them on their beliefs, religion, way of speaking and/or wording things, music preference etc. Treat others as you would wish to be treated. Everyone is equal on Athera.
2. Cheating, griefing, exploitation.
If you are found to be using a hacked client that can cause harm or adds disallowed features on our server, you will be terminated from the server. The same can be said about abusing exploits found on the server. If you find a bug or exploit, report it! We also disallow the griefing of and stealing from other player’s builds, whether that build is claimed or not.
3. Distasteful content.
We wish to keep chat in a friendly environment. This means topics that are sensitive or inappropriate will result in a warning, mute and/or temporary or permanent ban across our network, depending on the number of warnings and the offence. We advise that content such as religion, politics, abuse and violence should not be discussed on our server. The same rule applies for signs, builds, capes, in-game names and skins.
4. Player and account safety.
Every player, regardless of their age, should feel protected and safe when playing on our server. We do not take the harassment and threatening of other people lightly.
Athera is not a medium to be used for advertising. If you are seen advertising a server, community, website, service … that is not related to Athera or its management team, you will be permanently muted and/or banned.
More rules may/will be added as the need arises. There may be unmentioned, common rules that should be followed and fall under general knowledge when on a Minecraft server or any game.
