Information:

1) As a player on GlitchMC, It is your responsibility to be knowledgeable of the rules by reading, understanding the rules, and follow them at all times while playing on the network. If you on the network and playing we will assume you have read all the rules and have agreed to abide by these rules.
2) Staff members will reserve the right to punish you if you're breaking any of the rules on the network regardless of what situation you are in (school, work, etc). Excuses will not be tolerated such as "I didn't know that was a rule", "That was my cousin, not me", etc. Issues regarding possible Staff Abuse or False punishments will be handled by Management immediately.
3) Joking, pretending to break, attempting to bypass or loophole, or bypassing any rules will result in a punishment as breaking the rule itself or worse. Does not mean a rule isn’t stated it doesn't mean you won't be punished for it. If we believe that what you are doing on the network is wrong, we will punish you even if it is not stated.
4) Management reserves the right to create, remove, reduce or extend any punishment in which they see fit the server. All rules and punishments across the network will be under the Management Team Discretion at all times, this means your punishment can be changed by the Management Team depending on the severity of the situation.

Punishment Evasion

Punishment Evading will be determined by the ownership of the account, The Ownership of the account(s) will be determined by a shared IP-Address or any other association it will mainly be determined based on /dupeip. It will not be determined by anything else unless a valid reason is provided. If you share your account with another user or use public accounts you run the risk of it getting punished. If you were punished for Punishment Evading you cannot bypass the punishment by logging onto another account or bypassing it with a VPN or proxies. All accounts will be treated the same (Personal accounts, Friend accounts, Alt accounts, public alt accounts, etc).

Public alternative accounts: Public alternative accounts will be treated the same way as regular alternative accounts or accounts in general and will be punished accordingly even if you don’t own the account(s). The ownership of the account(s) will be based on the current owner of the account or who logs on with it recently. Getting punished on public alts will run your main account to be at risk. This also goes for if you're sharing your account with someone else.

Siblings or Relatives: If your account was punished because your siblings or relatives were on your account and the network and breaking server rules you will not be unmuted or unbanned. It's your responsibility to moderate access to your account and to ensure you don't give access to anyone you don’t trust.

Account Sharing: Sharing accounts is allowed on the server but if you share an account with another user you will run the risk of it getting punished and will not be unpunished.



➜ Punishment Evading/Evasion: [Mute/Ban/IP-Ban/Blacklist]:

This is when a player on the network has been punished and starts to evade their punishment by trying to bypass it by logging onto other accounts (alternative or friend accounts), bypassing it with a VPN or Proxy, etc. All accounts will be punished regardless if it's an alternative account or someone else's account. Ownership will be determined by a shared IP-Address or other association.

Mute Evasion: Logging on with another account to enable yourself to talk in chat while one or more of your accounts are muted on the network with a valid reason provided. If you private message spam while being muted on the server it will count as mute evasion if reported. Ownership will be determined by a shared IP-Address or other association.

Mute Evasion Notice: If you were muted on your main account, you are still allowed to log on alternative accounts/other accounts as long as you don’t speak on the accounts. Speaking on those accounts will get you punished for Mute Evasion.

  • Example:
    • Notch has been muted for 2 hours.
    • Notch90 has joined the server (Under the same IP).
    • Notch90: Hello everyone, how are you?
  • Punishment:
    • 1st Offence: IP-Mute and Double The Original Time [This does not mean the time left till it ends]. If the original punishment is permanent, it will be reflected. Example: If you are Evading a Permanent Mute you will be Permanently IP-Muted.

    • 4th Offence: 168 Hour IP-Ban [7 Day IP-Ban]

    • 6th Offence: 30 Day IP-Ban

Ban/IP-Ban/Blacklist Evasion: Logging onto the server with another account while one or more of your accounts under your ownership are banned on the network with a valid reason provided. Ownership will be determined by a shared IP-Address or other association.

[You will be punished for Ban Evasion] ' said kicked accounts or new accounts logging back on that are under the same user/IP will result in those accounts punished for Ban evasion.
  • Example:
    • Notch has been banned for 30 days.
    • Steve99 has joined the server (Under the same IP).
    • Steve99: Let's go! I’m back.
  • Punishment: Punishment will be doubled for every new offence.
