These are the complete and annotated rules of the server.

No theft or griefing - claimed or not.
Whether a something is claimed or not, we do not permit destruction of other players' builds or theft of their belongings.
Respect all players and staff.
It's the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
No hacked clients, glitch exploiting, x-raying, algorithm exploitation, etc. Ask staff for allowed mods.
Mods like Optifine and minimaps are fine. DO NOT use the "find clay, find diamonds" expoit: You will be banned.
There is no rule number four.
Mind if we call you Bruce?
Do not ask for Op/staff.
We select staff from long-term, active players who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the server and helping other players. Don't ask us. We'll ask you.
No PVP unless all parties agree in advance.
If you and your friend want to bash each other upside the head, go for it! So long as everyone has expressly agreed to PVP before the fight.
Do not damage, claim or change any roads or bridges or other public infrastructure.
If you would like to integrate your build with the road system, talk to Anna first. The environment at spawn, and infrastructure further out may be easy to take for granted, but someone built all of it. That means Rule #1 applies.
No political discussions in global chat or Discord.
There are many forums for expressing your political views, opinions and beliefs. This isn't one of them. This is a politics-free zone.
Have fun!
Do we really need to explain this one?
Regulation of the Server
The owner reserves the right to remove any player at any time, for any reason, at her sole discretion.
Just in case it ever needs to be said. Here it is.

Yes, BTW, this is all about those creepy stalker dudes. The ones who seem to keep up a train of minor infractions, none of which individually would draw a ban, but which when looked at all together signal dude's gotta go.
The owner reserves the right to remove any build or claim, at any time, at her sole discretion.
For example, if you build a giant dong, or a swastika not in the context of a Hindu temple, or have a portal that's causing problems for other players, or are a one-time player who built a dirt box just outside of spawn ... yeah. ZORCH!
No expectation of privacy.
Everything on a Minecraft server is logged somewhere, and all of it is visible to the admin. Some things get recorded in multiple places. For example: Chat and /msg traffic appears on the server console, in the server log and in the CoreProtect database. Chat is reflected into a Discord channel where it is kept -- and is searchable! -- permanently.

If you have something truly private to talk about, please use something like a secure messaging app.
Regulation of the Map
Do not build or claim within 100 blocks of another player.
Please keep at least 100m space between you and your neighbors, unless you've come to an agreement about building close to each other.
Do not build inside the no-build zone around the world spawn.
A map of the no-build zone is pinned in #Announcements on the server Discord.

Please talk to a staff member if you are interested in setting up a shop (or other build) at Spawn.
No Overworld perimeters within 5km of spawn / No Nether perimeters within 1km of the Nether hub.
If you're going to create one of these large cleared areas for a mob farm, it must be atleast 5km away from spawn or 1km out from the Nether hub. Help keep the map looking good!
Unclaimed builds are subject to removal once the player has been inactive for 30 days or more. Claimed builds may be removed after 60 days of inactivity.
For players with < 10K claim blocks, your claims will expire at 30 days inactivity. With 10K claim blocks or more, your claims will never expire, and we'll give you more time to show up again.

If you know you're going to be away for an extended time, let us know! We will preserve things if we know you're coming back.
The End dimension is subject to resets without notice
In order to provide equal opportunity for advancement and adventure to new players, The End is reset from time to time. Don't leave anything valuable outside of +/-1536 in The End.
Server Performance
No use of chunk loading systems/contraptions without the expressed consent of the Owner.
If you have something that you think really, really needs to be loaded all the time, talk to Anna before you build anything.
No more than 100 captive/farm mobs per loaded area.
This is for server performance. Total up ALL of the mobs you have (chickens + cows + llams + whatevermojangaddsnext) and the total must be 100 or less. Villagers are mobs. Don't count hostile mobs (unless you're keeping a pen full of zombies for some reason). "Per loaded area" means all of the space within 128m of the center of your area.
Do not build 'multidimensional' farms
Farms that employ nether portals pose a significant risk to the server as mobs like Iron Golems and Shulkers are protected from despawning and can build up to huge numbers if there's any glitch with the farm.
Dual logging is not permitted.
If you have a reason where logging in with two accounts is a Good Thing (like you're making a video and have a camera account) talk to staff about an exception.
Do not use methods of play or client mods to evade server controls or staff actions.
If you setup some contraption to defeat the AFK kick timer, or use a plugin to automatically log you in after being kicked, you may get the "permanent kick"
Item duplication, by any means, is not permitted.
TNT dupers are acceptable, as players do not gain any TNT blocks through operating the machine.
All entries in official build contests must be original deigns.
These events are contests of creativity: an opportunity for folks to strut their stuff. Grabbing a Litematica download of someone else's build and slapping it down is not creativity.
The use of the claim system to exclude others from unused resources is not permitted.
The claim system is for grief prevention and making boundaries clear, not creating resource monopolies. This includes, but is not limited to, geodes, spawners, ocean monuments and villages where no building is done to make use of the resource.
Do not give items to new players without their express consent.
For many players the early game is the game. This is why we only "recommend" that people get a bed from Community Storage. Generosity is an awesome trait: Please ask first before giving to new folks.
Beacons with effects enabled are forbidden in Spawn.
Talk to Anna if you would like a temporary exception for mining or large-scale terraforming.
