    SERVER RULES

    ༺★༻
    This section includes all the in-game server rules.

    ----------

    SERVER CHAT RULES


    | General Spamming


    - Chat Flood
    Chat flood is described as the rapid "flood" of chat messages in close succession to another especially (but not necessarily) of the same or similar chat message. (VIEW EXAMPLES)

    - Character Spam
    Character spam is seen as unnecessary repetition of characters in a word or sentence. Character spam includes the spam of random characters with no particular meaning or purpose. (VIEW EXAMPLES)

    - Command Spam
    Command spam is defined the unnecessary repetition of commands especially in a way that is obtrusive to other players. Command spam includes (but is not limited to) spamming teleportation requests, spamming /pay commands, spamming trade requests, spamming messages in /help and etc. (VIEW EXAMPLES)


    - Encouraging Spam
    Directly or indirectly encouraging spam is strongly prohibited! Encouraging spam is seen as a player offering another player(s) something in return to flood/spam chat. Collectively cooperating to spam on the network does also fall under this rule and is forbidden as well. (VIEW EXAMPLES)


    - Special Characters
    Special characters are the use of any character that is not included in the standard English characters (included custom font text). The use of special character is not allowed in the public chats of GTM. However you may use special characters in private messages as long that the messages are not obtrusive to other players. (VIEW EXAMPLES)


    - Capitalization
    Capitalization is seen as unnecessary capitals in a word or sentence especially in a way that is obtrusive to other players. There is no need for unnecessary capitalization in our public chat, it will simply result in a chat that looks 'spammy'. (VIEW EXAMPLES)

    | Racism or Discrimination
    Racism or discrimination is the use of any discriminatory or antagonizing word, statement, or behavior about (or against) a race, religion or gender, especially on the basis of prejudice. GTM will not tolerate any such discriminatory behaviors and offenders are to be punished!

    | Releasing Personal Information
    Repeating or mentioning the personal information of another player (or staff member) without their explicit or implied permission is a serious offence and is not allowed!


    | Advertising

    - Server Advertising
    Advertising other Minecraft servers is not allowed! This includes posting the IP or the name of a server in order to get players to join the server.

    - Other Advertising
    Advertising any external services such as but not limited to the sale of Minecraft capes, alts, or even other non Minecraft services is not allowed.

    - Non-GTM Related Links
    You may not send any links that are not related to Grand Theft Minecart especially in public chat. This includes Discord server links, Teamspeak IPs, Instagram accounts, Twitter accounts, unrelated websites and etc.

    | Disrespecting Staff/Build Team
    You may not disrespect any staff member regardless of their rank or position (including build team members). GTM staff and build team members dedicate several hours of their daily time to the community. The least you can do in return is to give them some respect!

    | Fighting Punishments
    Do not publicly fight a punishment in any of our public chats. The only way for you to get your punishment lifted is by creating a punishment appeal at grandtheftmc.net/appeal. Staff will not accept your appeal over any place other than the appeal section. In general, punishments are private and discussing them publically is not allowed.


    | Abusing Help Chat
    Never abuse/misuse the /help chat. Examples of misuse are asking irrelevant questions, fighting punishments, asking for free items, or generally wasting the time of a staff member.

    | Deceiving or Misleading Staff
    Lying to a Staff Member about GTM-related content is not allowed. This is especially true for when you report another player to a staff member, or when a player reports a staff member to a manager. Other examples include lying to staff during investigations concerning rule-breaking in GTM.

    | Haqusation

    Haqusating is when you publically call out a player for hacks in public chat. Haqusating other players not allowed! If you think a player is hacking, kindly /report them. Haqusating them does nothing but annoy players and alert hackers...!



    ----------

    SERVER GAMEPLAY RULES

    | Blacklisted Modifications
    Using, or logging on the network with any type of blacklisted modifications is strictly prohibited and will result in an immediate ban from the GTM network. Blacklisted modifications are any modifications to your client that gives you an unfair advantage in gameplay over other players. This includes hardware modifications like a modded mouse. If you are unsure whether a specific modification is allowed, please visit grandtheftmc.net/mods for a list of allowed mods or consult a GTM staff member.

    | Donation Scamming
    On GTM in-game scamming is allowed and is not punishable. However, we do not allow donation trade scams that involve trading items for perks on the GTM Store. On that note, if you are doing a donation trade, please make sure to follow the GTM donation deal rules!

    | Glitch Abusing
    The abuse/use of any glitch, bug or exploit is strictly prohibited. If you find a glitch, bug or exploit, please report it to a staff member immediately!

    - Alt Abuse
    "Alt abuse" is a form of glitch abuse / exploit where a player uses other Minecraft accounts in order to gain an advantage by exploiting game mechanics. Currently, examples of alt abuse include: Mass purchasing lottery tickets on alts to win multiple lotto slots, using alts to mass transfer 'starter money', or logging in with dozens of alts in order to spam / attempt lag the server. Please note that the use of alts for any other purpose is allowed.

    | Illegal Trades
    Illegal trades are trades that involve the trade of GTM currency (such as game items, in-game money, and etc) for any form of external service or currency. This includes trading in-game GTM items for alt accounts, resource packs, real-life money, or even items on other games or servers. If you are found attempting to / doing an illegal trade you will be banned from the network.

    | Alts and Account Sharing

    The use of alternate account(s) is allowed on GTM. However, you may only use an alternate account(s) that belong to you! If you choose to use or share alternate accounts that do not belong to you, you will still be held responsible for actions on that account as if it were your own. For example, if this alternate account were to be banned for the use of hacked clients or any other type of rule-breaking, you may also be held responsible for those actions. This may result in the ban of your own account(s)! In the same way, if someone were to use your account to break any server rules, you would still be held fully responsible for those actions. Your account security is your responsibility. The best way to avoid this would be to only use the accounts you own and never sharing or using accounts from ANYONE.

    | VPN Usage

    Due to their general use for malicious purposes, VPNs are not allowed on GTM. There is no reason to be using a VPN on the network. Please take ease in that your privacy is safe with us.

    | Mouse Abuse (or Drag Clicking)
    Mouse abuse (or Drag Clicking) is a method where a person drags their fingers across their mouse in such a way that it makes the mouse "vibrate". This method of clicking is only possible with some mouse and is not allowed on GTM. Drag clicking may result in autoclicker related false bans. You have been warned!

    ----------
    Disclaimer: The above-mentioned server rules are a community guideline. GTM reserves the right to punish individuals for cases not mentioned in the above rules especially when the actions of that player may be considered illegal or generally harmful to other players, staff, or GTM in whole. These rules may be adjusted or modified by the GTM senior team with or without prior notice.
    Note: Any fair punishments under three days cannot be appealed!

Unconstructive posts may be deleted and/or result in further action.

Don't post sentences like:"he muted me cus i wanted some one baned for renk scamin and he just muted me fore no reasin and he just led soo i cuden spec for a fuckin day!!!". It takes hours to read this and translate it into an actual sentence. Threads of posts like these may be removed if necessary.

    | Farming Likes or Comments
    Do not create alternate forums accounts or use any account to mass like yours or someone else’s content in order to boost likes or comments.


    | Fighting Punishments
    Do not publicly fight a punishment on the forum. The only way for you to get your punishment lifted is by creating a punishment appeal at grandtheftmc.net/appeal.

    | Deceiving or Misleading Staff
    Lying to a Staff Member about GTM-related content is not allowed. This rule is especially true for all support tickets. Lying is support tickets, whether it is a purchased ticket, appeal ticket, or any ticket is absolutely forbidden!
