  1. Respect others.

    Please make use of the /ignore command when reporting someone for breaking rules in chat. More often than not, failing to /ignore a rule breaker will also result in you breaking a rule when retaliating.
    1. Excessive trolling, flaming, flame-baiting, or being overly aggressive towards other users/players is not permitted. This includes patronizing (pretentious) behavior.
    2. Keep discussion civil. Avoid being arrogant and conceited. Do not harass or threaten other users or use Tech Fortress as a place to coordinate attacks on others.
    3. Keep in mind the topics of your discussion. Things like drugs, alcohol, sexual activities, etc. are not suitable for all ages, and thus is not suitable in public chat.
    4. Do not insult other users — doing so is abusive, and if it isn't nice, just don't say it. Even if another user is insulting you, the responsible thing to do is report the issue/post and move on.
    5. Using deceptive links (phishing) to gather player information without consent is not permitted.
    6. If you discover another player's unclaimed (or partially unclaimed) structure, please make a /report at the site mentioning its unclaimed status and do not alter it.
  2. Profanity (i.e. cursing, swearing) and obscenity/vulgarity are strictly prohibited.

    • Even censored or abbreviated foul language is not allowed.
    • The use of any words with abusive intent is never accepted.
    • This rule also applies to usernames and builds/structures.
  3. Spamming and advertising are strictly prohibited. Please use English.

    • Regarding spamming:
      • This includes the use of repetitive punctuation, letters, messages, words, etc.
      • The use of external characters/fonts is prohibited.
      • Please use English. Use of other languages is not allowed because a staff member is not able to ensure you are abiding by all chat-related rules and to others it is seen as spam.
    • Regarding advertising: You may not say things such as "Hey, join my cool server, the IP is 123.123.123", or "Hi, I have a server, /tell me for IP" in-game. You may not post threads stating things such as "I am setting up a private tekkit server, PM me for the IP". Any type of advertising in a public place is not allowed. The following are prohibited:
      • Posting threads or chat messages stating that people can message you for the IP to another server.
      • Publicly posting any IP on the Forums or in-game chat.
      • Ask others to play on other servers with you, with or without stating the IP. For example, you may not say things such as "Come and play with me on ub3rc00lserva!" in chat.
      • PM or /tell random people with IPs for servers.
  4. You must have approval before using client modifications.

    • This also includes, but is not limited to see-through texture packs, modifications that allow you to move, jump or fly in a way not intended by the default game settings, Block Radars and any game glitch or exploit that gives you an unfair advantage of any kind over other players.

  5. Report all working exploits and bugs you discover or know about.

    Reporting exploits helps us ensure your stuff is protected. If you report an exploit and wait for a response instead of secretly using it, you will likely be compensated

      • Some exploits may be allowed; further information about this will be provided in your report.
    • Use /report to make a report in-game, or /ticket to manage your reports.
