Purposely trying to interfere with a players gameplay by getting in their way, hurting or trolling them will result in warnings or temp-bans. For example preventing a player from building or using a fishing rod or grappling hook to knock them into a PvP arena. This also extends to spamming/excessive use of Staff assistance when not necessary.

Unlike most chat violations, staff give no warnings for true Hate Speech and the punishments quickly escalate. Note: Not all offensive, ill-informed, inflammatory statements or opinions are true Hate Speech and therefore may be warned or punished as disrespect, harassment, bullying, flame wars, etc. This rule also includes the basis of bullying players which is also unaccepted. Any individual targeting of players or groups will be dealt the same.

Any excessive discussions or conversations should be taken to a private discussion between the appropriate parties. Any users who use other languages to bypass chat rules will be muted and will have alternative language privileges taken from them. Regardless of language, all chat rules must be followed.
