As it is not possible to list every possible way to violate the rules, we ask you to use common sense when playing on our network. If you see something that would typically be illegal on other networks, but is not specifically listed here, please do not attempt it.

If you feel you have been unfairly punished, you may appeal your ban or mute here:
https://mineville.org/forums/ban-appeals/

If you feel a staff has been unfair or may have abused their powers you may report them by submitting a report here:
https://mineville.org/forums/staff-reports/

On servers with a combat timer, you may die upon being banned. Items lost will not be returned unless the ban is removed by a staff member
