The main mechinism in controlling player behaviour is the Warning system. When a player breaks the rules in a non-serious manner, a moderator can issue a warning to a player by using the
/warn <player> <reason> command.
For example, if I wanted to warn the player nomadjimbob for breaching the first rule, I would use the command as:
/warn nomadjimbob Be kind to other players
As the player accumulates warnings, the action taken will become more severe. The action taken can be viewed on the Rules ≫ Warnings page of this wiki.
Warnings can only be issued by players with the Moderator permission, however can be issued against any player, including other Moderators!
Temporary bans occur when a player receives 3 or more warnings over the lifetime of their account, followed by a permanent ban on their 10th offence.
Temporary bans can be issued by Moderators by using the command
/tempban <player> <Xd|Xh|Xm> <reason>
Moderators are not generally required to issue temporary bans as it is handled by the warning system.
Permanent bans are reserved for serious breaches, typically considered as:
The use of obscene or offensive language (rule 1)
Asking for personal information from players (rule 6)
Continuing behaviour when asked to stop
Breaching rules 7, 8, 9 and/or 11.
Breaching rule 10 on purpose or in a way that distrups players unexpectedly
To issue a ban on a player, use the command
/ban <player> <reason>. As an example, if you wished to place a permanent ban on the player nomadjimbob for griefing players, you would enter
/ban nomadjimbob Griefing players - rule 10.
