    • You must not steal from others
    • You must not kill animals belonging to other players
    • You must not harm other players unless in a PvP arena. This includes using potions that create a negative effect
  • No unfair modding or exploiting
    • You must not use client-side tools designed to give an unfair advantage
    • You must not exploit any bugs in the game such as duplication bugs
    • Mods that do not give unfair advantage such as minimap mods are fine. If unsure, ask a member of staff before using a client-side mod
  • Redstone guidelines
    • We allow the use of redstone in CedarCraft, as long as your build is not causing excess lag for the server and other players
    • Generally this happens with too many mobs or too many entities such as hoppers, item frames, chests or huge redstone contraptions
    • If your build is found to be causing too much lag, staff reserve the right to ask you to amend or, if excessive, remove the build
    • If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to a member of staff
  • Environment guidelines
    • These intend to prevent the server from looking ugly and unnatural. Builds not following these guidelines may be moved/removed without warning or compensation by staff and repeated breach of these guidelines may lead to a ban. If you are unsure about anything, please ask a member of staff
    • You should not build large, unnatural structures
      • For example 1x1 towers, 1x1 holes/tunnels or large floating dirt platforms
      • Floating structures that are meant to be floating, such as planes, are permitted however, as are natural-looking floating islands over water
    • You should build considerately, distancing your build at least roughly fifty blocks from others’ and roughly one hundred blocks from towns
    • You should aim to keep the main world looking as natural as possible. Use the resource world for mass excavating

If you are banned you may appeal only on the appropriate page. Do not post appeals in the shoutbox or send staff emails, they will be ignored. Alternate accounts to get around a ban will result in getting the alternate account  and IP banned

These rules are a thorough but by no means exhaustive list. CedarCraft administrators reserve the right to remove players who present a harm to the server and/or community without warning outside of the rules as written above. The above rules are subject to change at any time without warning with immediate effect
