When registering with FruitServers you agree to abide by and play within the policies of the server. These are the rules which are set to ensure a positive experience in all aspects of the community. A breach of a rule will result in punishment, weather it be through warnings or bans. A frequent reminder to players to see the /rules is important for the community to understand where the boundaries lie. Although following the rules is important, it's significantly more important for you to have fun!
Listen to the Staff
This is the first rule for a reason. Our Staff are selected based on ability, meaning that what they say should be accepted as law.
No attempting to abuse bugs/exploits or glitches
Doing this gives you an advantage over other players, which is unfair. Bugs are problems with the setup of either one plugin, or conflicting plugins which allow players to avoid the intention of one plugins feature. Exploits are a bug or glitch with results which better the offender. A glitch is an unintentional break in plugins which give unexpected outcomes.
No abuse or disrespect towards anyone
As a community accepting of younger players, this is not allowed. All players, ranks irrelevant, are equal.
Spamming disrupts chat for every player. This includes frequent use of any commands that affect the server.
No hacked clients or client mods
Hacked clients are not allowed. Although some client mods are allowed. The exclusions are; Optifine and other visual mods/shaders, Minimaps and inventory modifying mods such as Invtweaks.
No abusing commands
The commands you receive are not a right, they are a privilege.
Promoting other minecraft servers and/or their websites is considered advertising, as players are encouraged to leave Fruitservers for other servers.

Self-Promotion is Spam
All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed for further action. Any post that is considered advertising for one's servers, including the oblique promotion of any site one is affiliated with, fits under this subject. While you are allowed to promote your web site(s) in your signature, you are not permitted to post links to sites you run or are in any way affiliated with in your posts. In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned. On the topic of spam, should a member of the moderation or administrative team see a user ‘boosting’ their post count, a verbal warning will be issued.
Language and Trolling
Our community is widespread in age-groups. There are young users and language should be kept within an acceptable level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be verbally warned.
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned.
If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
A typical signature contains the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favourite quote or saying. Excessive font size are not allowed. Should the content of a signature be deemed inappropriate or promote other servers it will be disabled. Anyone abusing this privilege will be verbally warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.
