📜 Rules

Welcome to the WinterCrest rules page! Rules are expected to be followed by all users, regardless of their rank or time played on the server.

As the owner of your Minecraft account, you are responsible for what happens while you are logged on. If a rule is broken during your time online you'll be punished accordingly, just like everyone else.

Our staff team works incredibly hard to keep WinterCrest safe and enjoyable for everyone. If you find yourself being warned by a member of our team, you are expected to respect their decision and work with them to resolve the situation.

1. Griefing & Raiding 

Griefing/Raiding/Stealing/Killing anything that does not belong to you is not allowed, including in unclaimed areas. Your land is completely protected. This rule also applies to:

  • Stealing from a claim you’re trusted on without permission is not allowed.
  • Stealing items players have dropped by mistake is not allowed.
  • In shops, you may only take from containers marked as free item containers.
  • Claiming another player's belongings is not allowed.
  • If you share a base with another player or have claimed a town, you cannot leave a player's belongings unprotected.
👮 All blocks are logged. It takes us less time to catch, punish you, and rollback everything than for you to grief/steal/raid another player. If you are griefed, just let a Helper/Mod/Admin know. They will punish the player and rollback any damage done.
2. Respect Others' Claims. 

You have the right to your land, and don't bother other players on their land.

  • Do not claim or build within 100 blocks or range of another player/player claim. If land is claimed, build away from the edge of the player's claim. If land is unclaimed, build away from the other player's build.
  • Claims or builds intended to block a player or troll may be removed.
  • If players agree to live near each other, this rule cannot be enforced. We recommend screenshotting agreements for evidence.
  • If a player asks you to leave their claim/area, you need to leave. Sethomes in or around a claim may be removed upon request.
  • If you’re asked to leave, you must move at least 100 blocks away or out of range from the claim and not use local chat or sethome.
  • Failure to leave will result in consequences and you may be sent to spawn by a staff member.
  • Anybody can make a town. The town mayor may create and enforce their own rules, while all the server rules remain enforced by staff. To avoid issues, residents should agree to the town's rules prior to moving in. Town rule disputes should be handled between the town mayor and residents.
  • Town mayors must provide evicted residents their belongings. We recommend towns create an area where evicted residents can pick up their belongings at any time.
3. PVP Rules
  • Pushing players out of safe zones, including spawn, claims, shops, etc. into damage-enabled areas is not allowed.
  • TP killing/trapping, or attempting to, is not allowed. In addition, trapping players is not allowed.
  • Using sethomes, warps or other means of teleportation to kill somebody is considered tp killing.

9. Trading Rules.

All trades are protected; all players involved in a trade should clearly understand and accept the offer.

A trade scam is when a player (or players working together) misleads, lies, or does not deliver on an agreed deal with another player for goods or services. If a trade is started, it must be completed.

  • Refunds do not have to be given out if a trade was successfully completed and was not a scam.
  • If a trade is started, it must be completed or reversed if the trade cannot be completed. Failure to finish a trade after it has started is a scam. If a trade is cancelled before anything is exchanged, even if an agreement is set, this is not a scam.
  • Extortion or blackmail for real life or server goods/services is not allowed.
  • We recommend screenshotting trade deals in-game, this is the best way to send proof of a trade to a staff member in case of an issue. Chat logs cannot be used.
  • We do not recommend long-term trades, as the staff team cannot always find evidence or the traded items after a while.
