We are a very friendly server focused on community experience. To guarantee the best experience, we have a list of suggested rules that everyone should follow, and that means players and staff alike.
What do we mean by "SUGGESTED"?
By suggested, we mean that rules can be subjective but they MUST be followed, the subjective part comes from the staff freedom to evaluate each transgretion and taking the appropriate action for each case. If you ever disagree with a staff approach to a disciplinary action, you are free to contact us opening a TICKET via discord or through our website FORUM.
We operate at a ZERO TOLERANCE towards abusers and severe disciplinary actions will include permanent ban from the server, if it comes to that.
EVERYONE IS TREATED EQUALLY
For DONATORS, it goes without saying that just because a player has purchased a rank or donated money to the server, it does not give such player the right to be abusive. Such player might get banned even if they have a RANK! Please read the server rules below and if you have any opinion, suggestion or concerns, please raise it with a member of staff or in our forum or discord.
"BUT IT IS NOT IN THE RULES"
Yes, it is impossible to write rules that covers all subjects to perfection. Just because it isn't in the rules, doesn't mean that things can be acceptable, if in doubt, consult a member of staff.
► Common Sense goes a long way!
Yes, common sense is subjective but in this case, we expect that players apply it with the overall server experience in place. If you are in doubt if something is appropriate or not for this server, consult a member of staff privately or open a ticket. If a subject is sensitive it is most likely better avoided in Pandara. Your common sense must be based on the rules below.
► Respect everyone, from Staff to Players!
Be nice, don’t harass anyone. If you have an issue with another player you can use /ignoreplayer (playername). - If you are being harassed, please contact a member of Staff asap. - Don’t be annoying, just don’t. It might lead to you being banned.
► Do not ask to become Staff/Admin/OP
The server will make it public when needed, keep an eye on the website or the discord if you’re interested! - The process of chosing a staff is based on your interaction with the community, if you ask for it, most likely that you won't get it!
► Do not impersonate staff.
By any means that this might entail. Don’t change your name or appearance to resemble a member or staff. - Don’t claim to be a staff. While using items that can clone players appearance is permitted, using it to your advantage is considered impersonation.
► Don’t use offensive usernames, don’t use advertising usernames or offensive player skins.
If you disagree with a Staff decision and would like to appeal, please visit the appropriated section in the forum.
