There is no need to start bashing one another only because they like Team JNRR over Team RNJR. (Team RNJR is better though.)
No, not the dark voodoo magic cursing. Don't be using expletive language on the server.
Then again, don't go doing the dark voodoo magic cursing either. You're not voldemort.
Don't be saying disgusting, immature, or offensive things.
Please refrain from discussing controversial subjects.
This rule includes your Minecraft character name. Change it if it breaks this rule.
The attention isn't worth the mute that comes with it.
No link posting.
Unless the link is the rsmv.net, don't post it in chat.
No advertising other Minecraft Server or Realms.
Regardless if you own it or not, advertising other servers or realms will result in perm-ban.
Linking your YouTube channel is fine as long you don't spam it.
Please note that players will not be able to click on the link.
Spamming the link will be considered spam and advertising. You may be perm-muted or perm-banned.
Hacking/Using mods to cheat is not allowed on the server.
Mods that are not allowed includes, but not limited to, fly mods, x-ray of any kind, jump boosters, wall climbing, run/walk speed modification, item spawning, kill-aura, auto-shift, auto-click, and other mods that lets you play the game incorrectly so you can easily win or have a unfair advantage.
Mods that do not influence the gameplay like Optifine and other cosmetic mods are fine to have.
If you have a question on if a mod is usable or not, feel free to ask in the forum.
Bug/Glitch abuse/exploiting is not allowed on the server.
It could be a vanilla bug or a bug with the plugin, abusing/exploiting bugs and/or glitches will result in being banned from the server.
Impersonating Staff is not allowed at all and can result in being banned from the server.
All RSMV.net staff are clearly ranked with either Builder, Jr Mod, Mod, Admin, Senior Admin, Head admin, Co-Owner, or Owner. None of the staff's alt account have staff rank. Staff's alt accounts are not treated as staff, but as a regular player and will not be ranked with their main account staff rank.
Examples of impersonating staff includes, but not limited to, flat out saying you are a staff of the server and that you will ban/mute people if they don't listen to you, saying you are a staff's alt account and that you can and will ban/mute people, or claiming you are allowed to break the server rules because you are a staff on the server.
Impersonating staff may result in either being permanently muted or in some cases permanently banned from the server.
Helping players on the server, e.g, letting players know the rules by directing them to this page, answering questions where's the answers to that question are known either posted in-game or on the website forum/news feed, and/or helping them get started in one of the gamemodes, is perfectly fine and is not considered impersonating staff.
Also note, if a known staff member is missing their rank and is demanding their rank in open chat, that is a imposter, not a staff member. A real staff member knows what to do if their rank goes missing if and when it does.
Even it isn't listed, that doesn't mean it's not a rule. Listen to staff if they ask you to stop.
Listing all the rules will take too much room. When staff tells you to stop, it's for a good reason.
For example, if a staff tells you that the server is not a dating site and that you should stop trying to get a date via the server, you should stop.

Regarding Having Certain Words in Your Minecraft In-game Name.
First of all, the server and its staff are in no way homophobic or racist. However, due to the nature of such topic, having certain words that may relate to the LGBT, Racism, or other controversial topics in your Minecraft In-game name is not allowed on the server.
This is because of the trolls who would take the name and use it to cause chaos on the server for their own amusement at the cost of others. If this was a perfect utopian world, this ruling would probability be different. But since we are all savages, innocent words are forced to be considered inappropriate.
If your name has a word relating to LGBT, but it isn't in a form where it comes out as rude and inappropriate. (i.e. Not directed rudely towards LGBT or anyone.) Then you are fine to have the word in your username, however, staff will have the final decision on whether or not it is appropriate or not.
“Freedom of speech.”
Yes, you have “Freedom of Speech.” No, you cannot break server rules because it does not apply to the server.
“Freedom of Speech” only applies to publicly owned area like a city street. The server is privately owned, which means we are allowed to make the rules on what can be said on the server chat.
If you wish to have your “Freedom of Speech”, than go make your own server where you can troll all day long and no one will ban or mute you for it. When you are on our server, you are to abide to our server rules when it comes to chat. If you don’t, we have full rights to ban/mute you from/on the server.
Use of caps in server chat.
Use of all caps is totally fine and not against the rules as long it isn’t used excessively. If used excessively, it will be considered spam and you will most likely be asked to chill with the caps.
