By using any service provided by Randomcraft, you are agreeing to our terms of service
Note: In all instances, the staff members of Randomcraft have the final say in the rules. If something is not listed on this page, or you find a "loophole" in a rule, but a staff members deems your actions to be rule-breaking, his or her word is final. If you wish to dispute any decisions made by a staff member, make a thread in the "donation/account issues" forum.
1. Server specific Rules:
Each of our servers has some specific rules regarding the server.
Type /rules in each server to view its respective rules. Make sure to do this to prevent being punished
2. No Hacking, Cheating or Exploiting in Any Manner
Do not use any mods or game bugs that give an advantage over other players. This includes any aspect that allows you to see through walls in any manner, such as X-ray texture packs, cave finder, radar, block glitches, etc. This also includes any modifications that allow you to move, jump or fly in a way not intended by the default game settings, and any game glitch or exploit that gives you an unfair advantage of any kind over other players.
All exploits are included. Example: If you use a server side bug to turn dirt into diamonds, then this will be considered exploiting, and you will be punished. If you find a bug, report it as soon as possible to the Staff.
Automating actions, including - but not limited to - using auto-clickers, Kill auras, fast-clicking mods, etc are NOT normal play ability. You must be aware, and able to respond to staff and Minecraft at all times.
If you are caught cheating you will face punishment deemed appropriate by the Staff. In the case of Illegal mods, all accounts that you have access to will be banned. Do not cheat and you will not have to worry about this. If you are unsure whether a certain activity is allowed, ask the Staff.
3. Respect All Staff Members
All decisions made by the Randomcraft 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, by private messaging Staff Members, and not publicly on the forums.
Scamming on certain servers IS allowed, but the scams are only limited to in-game items. For example, in factions you are allowed to pretend to trade with someone, take their item, and not give them yours. Read the server specific rules of your server for more information on whether or not scamming is allowed. No scamming that involves ranks, or real world money in any way, are allowed on any server.
Do not create games or events that are not possible. This is defined by the Staff as a type of scam.
If you have a question about what might constitute a scam, contact the Staff
5. Account Security and Sharing
As a player on Randomcraft, you are responsible for the security of your Minecraft and Randomcraft 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, we do not allow the sharing of Minecraft accounts used on the Randomcraft. 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.
6. Do not Impersonate or “Pretend to be Someone”
Impersonating is a serious offense on Randomcraft, as we do not take this lightly. If you witness someone impersonating a Staff Member, please contact any staff members as soon as possible.

Rules for Non-Staff Members
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 game 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. If the staff member in your server isn’t responding to a question or isn't dealing with a 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 on the forums You can also seek another staff member from a different server, 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. 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 game. 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.
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 discord 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. 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 staff member if you have concerns on what you can and can’t do.
The following aren't rules, but you'll gain respect quickly if you follow them.
Be aware of personal space. Even though this is a game and your avatar is not you, be polite and do not run into people or get in their face unnecessarily, just like you wouldn't in real life.
If a player kindly asks you to stop doing something because it bothers them, then you should stop and respect their wishes. Staff may get involved if the situation calls for it.
Remember: Minecraft is a VIDEO GAME. It should never impact your personal life. It is something to be enjoyed. At no point in a minecraft experience should you feel the need to threaten or attack other players, or try to ruin their lives. If you find yourself becoming angry because of minecraft, turn off your computer for a while and do something else.
Resolve any conflicts quickly and with compassion for others. If a moderator has to step in to resolve a conflict, all parties involved may find themselves having a time-out from the Randomcraft server network. If someone is violating one of the rules, privately tell one of the staff members. False claims of rule violation will result in the claimant being punished.
Report players to staff if there are any available. If not, post your report on the forums and wait for a staff member to handle it.
