| Official LuminousMC TeamSpeak & Discord Rules LuminousMC strives to be an enjoyable and safe environment for all those in our community. To achieve this, we have formulated specific rules and corresponding punishments that are enforced by our staff team. If you see an individual neglecting any of the following and there are no staff members present, then please submit a player report here. All punishments are at the discretion of the staff team as they have been trained to handle every possible scenario. If you feel you were punished for an invalid reason then we ask you to refrain from posting this information anywhere except in your ban appeal. | Player Disrespect | Kicked - Warning | Banned From Communication Platform We want all our community members to feel safe and welcomed at all times and therefore we consider this our number one rule. This rule includes offences related to bullying, discrimination and harassment. There is a strict zero-tolerance for any forms of the above and those caught in violation will be handled severely. Staff members are trained to settle all player disrespect cases in a fair matter, however, if you feel the situation was misinterpreted then we invite you to explain this in your ban appeal here. Please note that these punishment lengths are guidelines but are often modified by staff members based on the level of disrespect. | Inappropriate Content | Kicked - Warning | Banned From Communication Platform All content posted by members of the community is to remain at a suitable level so that it shows respect towards users of all ages. We ask that you think before you post as we do not tolerate explicit or offensive material. | Chat Disruption | Kicked - Warning | Banned From Communication Platform Chat disruption on our TeamSpeak or Discord servers relates to the use of music bots when they aren’t welcome as well screaming into the microphone. Spamming in the platforms chat is prohibited and falls under this rule. | Advertisement | Kicked - Warning | Banned From Communication Platform Just like our in-game and forum rules, we do not welcome the posting or linking of other Minecraft Networks in our TeamSpeak or Discord lounges. | Impersonation | Kicked - Warning | Banned From Communication Platform Impersonation is not permitted on the LuminousMC network as it leads to extensive confusion which results in problematic situations. The term impersonation relates to naming yourself as another player, staff member or significant figure and acting on their behalf. | Punishment Evasion - Ban | Permanent Ban From Communication Platform If you have been banned in TeamSpeak or Discord, you are not allowed to use another account to come back online. The only way of getting unbanned sooner is through the ban appeal process.
